Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Chasing The Dream From Real Estate To Runway

Nineteen-year-old Annabelle Munt left her hometown of Mackay just three weeks ago after moving to Melbourne to pursue a career in modelling.

Before the big move, she was employed at Blacks Real Estate but has since settled into the outskirts of Melbourne where she has already claimed a new apartment and full-time job as a property agent.

Reflecting on what Annabelle loves the most about the industry, she says that “Fashion helps me express myself in a way that gets me out of my shell from being shy.

“I think fashion is transformative, and I want to be a part of the industry.”

Last year she won the CQ Rescue Talent Search held by Brooke Lee Modelling and as part of her prize, she won a bid to compete in the QLD final of Top Model Australia, which she attended in May.

Due to her undeniable beauty and talent, Annabelle was selected as a finalist and will compete for the upcoming National title in Melbourne. Annabelle is thrilled to enter in hopes of winning this prejudice competition so that she can travel to London for the Internationals.

Since kickstarting her passion for modelling in grade 11, she has clutched the crown title for CQ Rescue along with securing the position as a finalist Crown for Miss Galaxy Australia in May.

In addition to these remarkable achievements, you may have seen her in commercial campaigns for Calanne, Canelands Central, Mackay Street Chaplaincy and Ma's Pizza Kitchen, which she is hoping to do more of in future.

On Sunday the 23rd of June, the overall winner will be announced at the biggest event of the Top Model season. The W Melbourne will host the exciting runway event, featuring contestants from all over Australia aspiring to launch their careers as an international model.

The selected winner will win the trip of a lifetime to compete in London on the International stage, and walk in London Fashion Week whilst there in September, 2024.

When she’s not competing for the top title in modelling, Annabelle loves singing, cheerleading and travelling and her biggest inspiration is her step-mother.

“Since the day I met my step-mum, she inspired me,” said Annabelle

“She is always elevating me to be my best even when I don’t feel like trying, she has always been there to help me and I love watching her push herself to thrive and seeing how she’s always busy pursuing the things she loves which I admire.

“Even though I’m not her own, she has always treated me like I am.”

With the determination to achieve her goals and a bubbly, positive personality, Annabelle is on the road to success and we wish her the very best in future!
