According to Victoria Lee, This Eye Mask Basically Fakes Eight Hours of Sleep

True story: I actually bumped into Australian model Victoria Lee as she was exiting the bathroom of David Jones in Sydney. Even though it was our first meeting, I straight-up knew it was her (maybe it was the bombshell blowdry and mind-blowing figure that was swathed in red Bec and Bridge?). Naturally, I acted cool and introduced myself, but my mind was working double-time to take in the moment. First thoughts? She's not super tall—Most of my model encounters have left me feeling about three feet (I'm looking at you, Kelly Gale). Also, she's so kind—and excited for our shoot, might I add. Next up, I'm introduced to her mum (who's an angel by the way) so now we know where the beautiful personality comes from. One white wall and seven minutes later, we've got eight Polaroid images that pretty much took my breath away. 

So, whether you're familiar with Victoria Lee or not, there's no denying her achievements to date are proof that a long and crazy-successful career is ahead of her: She's fronted Seafolly campaigns, last year walked the Victoria's Secret runway show, and has recently been named as a David Jones ambassador. She's actually in Sydney right now in preparation for the S/S18 runway show alongside fellow Aussie Jessica Gomes next week.
