Gold Coast surfer Stephanie Gilmore suits up for Vogue fashion shoot.
Gold Coast native Stephanie Gilmore, 25, who has been the women’s professional surfing champion five times, looked like she was one step away from a Playboy Bunny when she suited up on Friday at Bondi Beach. Under instructions from photographers, Gilmore teamed long, black silk gloves with a series of striking one-pieces. Gilmore, who has been dubbed a Roxy spokesmodel, is open about her love for fashion.
“Don’t be afraid to be glamorous,” she said recently in an interview. “I just have fun with it.” One of my style icons is Rihanna.” I love that crossover between sport and glamour.”
