5 Minutes with… Model Jennie Runk

Summer’s finally here and we’re daydreaming of sandy beaches and sunkissed skin!

We took some time out to chat with American plus-size model & mega babe, Jennie Runk on the set of our recent holiday shoot to talk clothes, cats and body confidence…

Three words to describe you..

Crazy. Cat. Lady

Your most used emoji…
😘 I send about a hundred of these everyday to my partner

Last person you sent a WhatsApp to …
My partner, we message all the time when we're apart.

If modelling wasn’t your day job what would you be doing?
Most likely hanging out with my cats, watching Doctor Who.

What’s your summer jam (track)…
Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon

You couldn’t pack a holiday case without…
My sun hat and shawl. My skin doesn't tolerate sunlight very well so I always make sure I'm covered up.

Your fave place in the world is…
New York City, there's no place like home!

What would you say to girls searching for beach body confidence…?

Your body isn't for anyone else, it's yours and yours alone. You don't need to worry about what other people think about what you're wearing or how you look, because at the end of the day, the only opinion that truly matters is your own.

What was your fave piece from the shoot…
I absolutely loved the black swim suit, I usually wear bikinis, but this one-piece is downright sexy. I couldn't stop checking myself out and taking selfies in it!

What’s the one thing (clothing or otherwise) you couldn’t live without in summer…
Weekend brunches in the city.

Your best summer beauty tip…
Use less product and less makeup, keep things easy for yourself. Sometimes I just use nothing more than a quick swipe of tinted moisturizer with SPF.

The one thing you really want us to know about you is…
I might look like a cool kid, but I'm actually a huge nerd with a sun allergy and an affinity for video games.
