Signed with one of the worlds top modelling agencies, IMG, this blonde, strong, woman is the world on wheels. A regular star on Channel E!’s The Model Squad, Caroline Lowe (@carolinelowe) grew up going to theatre camps & chasing her dream of acting which is still a major driver in her already successful career today. I mean who wouldn’t want to cast a beauty like Caroline?
I’m sure you’d all love to know exactly how Caroline maintains her insanely, flawless bod?! Don’t worry, our hands are well and truely up as well! The answer? Sheer hard work & a hell of a lot of it! This woman is FIT, active & on the ball! Varying her schedule with a number of different workouts, her body is kept in tip, top condition… she even spares some time for a few cheeky Krispy Kremes on the side. A girl who nails the art of moderation, is a girl after our own heart.
It’s always a pleasure working with international models & Caroline Lowe is no exception. We can’t wait to see what’s next for her… surely an Oscar is next on the list!
Caroline your INC shots are simply spectacular! Tell us about your day shooting in Sydney - you looked perfectly at home!
Thank you!! It was such a fun shoot, we shot in the AM, so it was nice to have the beach basically to ourselves! Josie is a legend so there is no reason not to feel right at home!
One of the biggest compliments you can give someone I think, is to refer to them as a girl-next-door-beauty ... which is how you've been described in the past. It means you're natural, approachable, real & obviously gorgeous - it's such a testament to your character! How would you describe your personality & your view on the modeling industry?
I would say I have a pretty big personality, and what you see is what you get with me, which is my biggest asset and my worst lol. I tell it how it is and most of the time that works to my advantage and people find it refreshing.
Not only a beauty, you're an actress! Where did the love of acting come from? What are your goals?
I grew up going to theatre camps and I've always loved it, I was a very energetic child ( and still am) so it was a great way to express myself and put that energy into a craft. This year I want to focus more of my time into acting and try to get some bigger roles.
If you could take your pick, what TV shows would you love to cast for?!
I'm obsessed with the Amazon Prime show The Marvelous Mrs Maisel . It's written by Amy Sherman-Palladino who wrote Gilmore Girls which is my ALL time favorite show. Both of these shows are very funny and quick witted, I'd love to be apart of any of her projects!
Talk to us about your role on The Model Squad on channel E! How did it feel being followed by cameras for days on end?
It was very weird at first, I'm used to being in front of the camera but as a character whether it's modelling or acting, so being "Caroline" was actually more challenging.
You came off beautifully - prior to shooting were you ever nervous about the public perception?
I was a bit nervous because my delivery, if not in context, can definitely come off a bit " rude" when I purely intend it to be funny. And editing is key for a Reality Show so yikes! Lol
You're in incredible shape! What's your current preferred workout regime? And what is something you dread - but you push through because you fee/see great results?
I HATE INCLINE! So running is my biggest dread but it's necessary for heart health and overall weight loss. I love Barre class, Pilates and Hot Yoga. I find it's the best way to get long , lean muscle which is key in this industry.
When you're on the road for work & not around your usual routine, how do you keep fit & active i.e. in new cities?
I love classes and most cities have group classes you can sign up for online. It's a great way to find a workout you like! Also my friend Megan Roup is a workout instructor back home in NYC and you can do her classes via the OBE app in the comfort of your own home or hotel room.
Your shots for It's Now Cool are spectacular! You were born to be on our Australian beaches! Tell us about the swim you wore during the shoot - any favourite styles or brands?
The swim was so cute! I honestly loved every piece but some shots seem to have more swim than others haha.
Preparing for a swimwear shoot - how is this done!! Do you make changes to your diet in the days leading up to the shoot?
I lead a healthy diet (for the most part) on the regular. But I have a weakness for Kripsy Kreme so I use that as my motivation for a post shoot treat.
I feel as though an epic set of abs (like your own!) is totally “in-Vogue” right now. Tips for those wanting to buff up their tummies?
I find that abs are the hardest muscle group to maintain. It's 60% diet and 40% exercise. Bicycle crunches, sit- ups and toe touches are easy exercises you can do anywhere and yield results. I do 3 sets of 20 pretty much everyday.
We're approaching winter here in Australia. Windy, chilly days ahead! When it comes to your skin during the winter time, how do you keep it healthy, nourished & hydrated? Any brands or products we should be looking out for?
I love to use natural products, vitamin E oil is my favorite. It's super hydrating and helps reduce stress marks and skin discolouration or scarring. I just lather it up before bed, sorry Heath! Lol
