Maxim Australia March 2016
Hey, Casey, congrats on your MAXIM cover. How does it feel? I’m so excited! I never would have thought I’d see my face on the front cover of such a prestigious magazine.
Tell us about the shoot. It took place on the Gold Coast after I won the 2015 MAXIM Australian Swimwear Model of the Year (aka ASMY) competition and I’ve never felt so important having so many professionals fussing over me making sure everything was in place and perfect. It’s something I’ve never experienced but could de nitely get used to!
You pose in some new swimwear. Have you ever had a bikini wardrobe malfunction? Yeah, a while ago when I was at Wet’n’Wild in Sydney I went down one of the slides on my back and when I got to the bottom my bikini top had untied itself and looked more like a cape than a bikini.
Supergirl! Who was the last person to see you naked? Probably my sister Abbey. Coming from a family of all girls we are very comfortable in our own skin.
When do you feel sexy? I feel sexiest when I’ve trained, eaten well, had a productive day and am squeaky clean after a refreshing shower.
How has your life changed since your big win? There have been so many more modelling opportunities, with others to go to other countries, and I’ve had extra exposure and recognition (for being a model) on my social network pro le which has increased with brands wanting to support me. I was also the cover girl for the MAXIM Machines special edition released just before Christmas and I’ve judged some of the 2016 ASMY heats so far. Life has been busy!
And we hear you’re heading to Las Vegas to represent Australia? I am! I was recently asked to represent Australia next June in Las Vegas to compete at the Miss Tropic Beauty USA — one of the world’s largest swimwear pageants. I’m extremely excited to be heading to America, it’s going to be an amazing opportunity and experience.
So… would you ever date a fan or one of your followers on social media? I’d never say never to dating a fan or follower. If the right guy grabbed my attention then why not?
What do you look for in a man? A nice smile, fun personality, active, spontaneous and has a cute butt. Oh, and if he can cook a great homemade meal and make me laugh, I’m sold.
