TV personality, model and mother Rachael Finch is the newest member of the Myer Ambassador family, and to say we’re excited to have her on board would be an understatement! Since representing Australia at the Miss Universe competition in 2009, Rachael has gone on to show her versatility across a variety of platforms, and has most recently been part of Channel Seven’s Australian Open broadcast team. She loves fashion and racing, and her natural beauty, talent and experience make her the perfect fit. We sat down with Rachael to get to know her a little better…
Myer: Tell us about your first memory of Myer…
Rachael Finch: Walking through the store with mum, just looking. Going from the clothes section to the shoes section – shoes were a big thing, I remember seeing shoes everywhere. And the black and white, I remember that vividly.
M: What was your favourite look from the shoot we did with Amanda Shadforth of Oracle Fox?
RF: The last look, the by johnny look. It was a long printed skirt that flared out at the bottom with a black crop jumper and a pair of Converse on my feet. It was amazing to be up on the rooftop of Myer Melbourne, with the Myer flag flapping in the background. I just felt comfortable and relaxed. And of course I loved the Maticevski dress, it was definite standout. It just fit perfectly and the structure was amazing. He’s so talented and a really nice guy too.
M: What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
RF: I think about breakfast! Usually it’s a green juice and something cleansing. I really consider what’s going to help me start my day feeling amazing and usually that means food and a stretch.
M: What’s your denim style?
RF: I’m currently into boyfriend jeans. In the past I’ve loved skinny jeans, but at the minute I really prefer the boyfriend style – I just love that relaxed, casual feel, and usually when I’ve got denim on it’s my day off so I like to feel comfortable.
M: What are your favourite apps?
RF: Find my iPhone! If you lose your phone, it helps you find it. And the MYER one app – I got it this week, it’s great! I also use lots of health apps.
M: What’s your go-to date night outfit?
RF: You can’t go past something sexy and black. Something slinky, maybe a dress with a bit of a longer hem worn with a beautiful red lip and hair out.
M: What’s your signature scent?
RF: It changes with seasons, but at the moment I love Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Narcisco Rodriguez.
M: Describe your ideal Sunday…
RF: Start with a walk to a cafe for a fresh juice and a healthy breakfast, then put Violet down for a nap while I do some Yoga. Take Violet for another walk, then maybe a jump in the ocean, come home with the sand in my hair, have a shower and a nap and then cook something delicious at home – maybe some crispy skin salmon on a bed of mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. After that, I’ll put a DVD on and relax.
M: Whats your guilty pleasure?
RF: Dark chocolate! Usually with a cup of tea…
M: Do you have any favourite Instagram accounts?
RF: Coco Health – she posts all of these amazing inspirational food pictures. I also love JS Health, she’s a health blogger and nutritionalist and I love how she combines the health element with high fashion. I love to find out what’s trending from a health perspective. I also love the vibrancy of Margaret Zhang, she’s incredible.
