posted by jbrebner

Welcome to the world of Michelle Bagarra, the talented muse and model behind the luxe Nine Islands summer campaign. Shot over two days on tropical Stradbroke Island in sunny Queensland, Michelle’s unique Australian Filipino heritage and bubbly personality shone through to bring the collection to life – and we couldn’t be more charmed!

With the debut collection just dropped from luxury resort-wear brand Nine Islands, we managed to track down Michelle on the Gold Coast for a quick on-the-spot interview – think rapid fire questions for a brief snapshot into Michelle’s music faves, guilty pleasures and travel bucket list.

Join the conversation!

But my friends call me:

Current location:
Relaxing at home :)


But if I could be anywhere on the planet right now, it would be:

Known for:
Being easy going.

But if I could be anything I would be:
Beyonce or Rihanna. I wish I could have their confidence!


The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is:
Something I’m not proud of but first thing I do is check my phone, see if I’ve missed any emails for work.

My favourite thing about summer is:

My ultimate summer getaway is:
Going to a tropical island.
