“Everyday I love to keep it simple! Adding a bit of gold jewellery can elevate your look in a really subtle way.”

TRENDY CREATURE:
Hi Ronnie! Thanks for taking part in Creatures! Can you tell us a bit about what you do?

RONNIE MCNEVIN:
Hi! Thank you for having me! I am a Brisbane-based model, under the management of Vivien’s and I also work full-time as a data analyst for a multi-national insurance company.

TC:
You were the model and the muse for the Tahlia Collection. Talk us through how it felt to shoot the collection.

RM:
I felt really compelled by the direction of the shoot. All elements seemed to dovetail together seamlessly, in terms of the location, the crew and the pieces themselves. Being part of such a strong direction was truly special.

TC:
Describe your process when modelling – what do you do to get in the zone and how do you embody different briefs

RM:
My favourite way to model is to embody the brand and direction of the production. I try to feel the passion of the designer and reflect this in my movements and poses. Sometimes this means doing some research into the brand and observing how their pieces are portrayed by their current models. For new brands or collections, sometimes this means just getting to the shoot and really taking a moment to feel out the mood and direction.

TC:
Trendy Creature is all about elevating the everyday. What’s one thing you do to elevate the everyday?

RM:
Keep it simple! Adding a bit of gold jewellery can elevate your look in a really subtle way. I also think mixing and matching casual/fun pieces with more formal pieces can be a great way to convey something quite striking. So, whether that means pairing a beautiful silk dress with a pair of new balance runners, or adding a pair of cool sunglasses to just about any look can add that extra dimension

TC:
Layering the collection played a big part in this campaign. How do you like to layer your jewellery?

RM:
I’m obsessed with a busy ear moment. I love to layer my ears with lots of gold pieces, but again keeping the pieces themselves simple. My go-to is lots of little hoops and huggies paired with one statement earring. I also love simple gold rings and chains.

TC:
What is your everyday essential?

RM:
My gold jewellery – necklace, earrings and ring. I don’t leave the house without them!

TC:
Describe your everyday style in three words.

RM:
Unique, practical & fun.

TC:
What is on your current playlist?

RM:
I currently love this artist, Alex Cameron. He’s a bit out there and I just find him really fun to listen to.

TC:
Best book you’ve read lately?

RM:
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, or maybe A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.

TC:
Who is your style muse?

RM:
I love Bella Hadid. I like that she strikes a balance between experimental and classic.

TC:
What’s your star sign?

RM:
I am a Libra but I was six weeks premature… So I’m never sure what that means!
