We spotted her on a photo by Colin Anderson. Up and coming model Kirsty Wright immediately convinced us with her appearance. That's why we asked her for an interview. We were lucky and she agreed. Here we are to show you the interview and several of Kirsty's amazing photos. Have a look and don't hesitate to contact her, if you like to work with this beautiful model.
I am 18 years old, born, raised and live in the North East of England. Besides freelance fashion, commercial, catwalk modelling and promo modelling I am a student studying Level 3 extended certificate in fitness services at Newcastle college and I have a part time job as a cashier. Also I compete in pageants, at the beginning of this year I was crowned Miss Crown and Glory Photogenic 2017 and in June I was crowned Miss Newcastle Galaxy 2017/18. I go to nationals to compete for Miss Galaxy England in March 2018! I can’t wait, so excited!!! Also for this I am raising money for the charity The Christie NHS Foundation. I am enthusiastic about what I do, I am a very hard working, determined person always putting 110% effort into everything I do. I’m chatty, polite, well mannered, out going and very easy to get along with. I would also describe myself as unpretentious. I'm open, honest and straight forward I don’t try to impress anyone. I do things for my own benefit or to help others. I get told, I’m one of the most mature 18 year olds anyone has ever met. I get told, I am admirable as I am clear in my ambitions.
A lot of thought into outfits, hair styles and make-up to match the photographers requirements or the brief given.

I love being creative I have a GCSE in Textiles at a grade A and I have a BETEC in Art and Design 1&2 at two grads of Merit Merit. So, choosing my own outfits and doing my own make-up, I can show my creative side.
A lot of practicing, knowing what poses and angles suit you and your body is key and training. Going to the gym with my personal trainer, making sure, I stay in shape.
I always get along really well with photographers. A lot of laughs and fun times happen on shoots. Everyone gets along so well. Photoshoots are a very enjoyable time. I ALWAYS look forward to them!
The fact, that I can be myself, and how it has opened so many doors for me, I’ve met a whole new community of wonderful people all across the UK and it has made me so much more confident in myself as a person as I was bullied throughout most of my education years in school and at the beginning of college. This knocked me back a lot. However, I feel like if that didn't happen to me, I wouldn’t be here now, as I would have already been confident, as I started all this for a confidence boost.
What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
Being published by companies and getting the opportunities to work with agencies and model managers. And the fact, that I am able to train others, that are wanting to get into the modelling industry. Seeing their progression is amazing!
Tell us about some of your recent shoots.
Two of my recent shoots have been location fashion shoots in Newcastle city centre, the town that I represent! These two shoots have been with photographers Richard Davison and Colin Anderson. The images, I have received back, are some of my favourites by far!
The photoshoot with Richard was more a high end look classy fashion, I wore a tight pink dress from New look, a black jacket from Dorothy Perkins, with black heels from Kurt Geiger.

Richard Davison, Stephen Beecroft, Ian Wallis, Phil Reay, Collin Anderson and Christina Hunter. All these photographers are amazing to work with, and I’ve loved the images, I’ve received back off them. They are all so easy to get along with and are incredible, when it comes to shooting. They all support me throughout my modelling and pageantry, but constantly giving me advice on how to get even better and further in my career.
I don’t look up to anyone for ‘style’. I put all my own outfits together. I wear, what I think works, what makes me feel good as I feel like this way my style can show, who I truly am. If an outfit, that you wear, doesn’t make you feel good, what’s the point in wearing it??
Your favourite designer is… ?
I have two, Rachel Allan and Mac Duggal. You feel like a princess wearing their garments!
Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar?
Vogue. I have followed Vogue for a few years. The fashion shown is just absolutely astonishing like WOW! Vogue, I’m speechless, it's just amazing, so stylish, so up my street.

My Rachel Allan couture evening gown paired with my Earring Envy silver necklace and earring set! This will be revealed next year at nationals!!
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I hope to have completed a degree as well as traveling nationally and internationally with my potentially new model management, big things are happening!!
If you could be anywhere else but here, where would you go?
If I could be anywhere I would go to America but more specifically New York! It is a dream of mine to visit that amazing beautiful lively city!
