Imogen Caldwell Is Hotter Than Africa
Handheld fan not required, but recommended.
It’s easy to spend some time in Imogen’s Instagram scroll. Her description, however, shoots any courting fantasy dead in the thumb. Fisherman’s wife: Two words that clatter like a thousand breaking hearts. Miss Caldwell’s an honourary Stab muse. She’s a rare flower in red dirt, and we’ll take any excuse for a Q&A and lively photo gallery courtesy of photog, Juan Medina. She also happens to be quite handy on a surfboard, not to mention she charges. But, when you’ve grown up in WA and your man’s Cortney Brown, that’s only natural.
Stab: What did you have for breakfast?
Imogen: Eggs, bacon and avocado on ciabatta, with coffee and fruit.
Favourite thing to do outside of surfing?
The most exciting place for a photoshoot?
Somewhere I haven’t been.
Your best attribute?
You tell me.
Does being in front of a camera make you feel sexy?
Yes and no, it really depends who the photographer is, where I am, what I’m wearing ect.
How do the million hearts you’ve broken at your IG description: A Fisherman’s Wife make you feel?
Favourite time for love?
Anytime, all the time.
Eating loudly around me, don’t do it.
What would you be doing without Instagram or social media?
Exactly what I’m doing now, what I’ve always done. Just minus the drama and bullshit of social media. I think everyone would be better off without it, but unfortunately, in my line of work my value is limited without it.
What’s the first thing you do when you get back to West Oz?
Depending on where I’m coming home from, I am usually pretty keen to get away from crowds of people and retreat to the desert for a bit.
Can you tell us a misconception most people have about modelling?
Most people think it’s always a glamorous, easy job. But in reality it’s a cut throat, emotionally straining world.
What’s the single greatest thing about West Oz?
Is surfing the world’s sexiest sport?
I definitely wouldn’t consider my style of surfing “sexy”. I can’t talk for anyone else but I try to keep my ass covered at all times while surfing, going to the extent of wearing my dad’s knee length boardies (laughs).
Perfect romantic getaway?
Webber, dogs, swag, motorbike, boards and rods in the middle of nowhere. Perfection.
Who’s your modelling crush?
Elyse Knowles. She’s real.
I get up way too early, so after I annoy Cortney for an hour we get coffee and check the beach.
Best thing about having an older husband?
He’s a seasoned housewife. I leave the chores to him, besides cooking – then he takes the back seat.
