Perfect model for Qld tourism

THEY say beauty is only skin deep but in model Sarah Patricia Todd, it definitely doesn’t stop there.

The Mackay-born model has built a successful career, which includes being the face of the new Tourism Australia advertising campaign aimed at bringing tourists back to Queensland after a disastrous summer.

Now living in Sydney and working with Chic Management, the 24-year-old has worked for some world class companies and organisations including Seafolly, Nicola Finetti, Megan Gale Isola Swimwear and more.

In her latest venture, she not only looks beautiful but is doing her part to support her home state of Queensland. “When I went for the job I told them, ‘I’m from Queensland’, but I don’t know if that helped or not,” she laughed

As part of the campaign, Ms Todd stars in a commercial for Tourism Australia, an experience she describes as amazing.

“I got to go up to Cape Tribulation and swing upside down on the flying fox; it was a really amazing and fun job,” she said.

Ms Todd moved to Sydney when she was 19 to pursue her career and it didn’t take long to head for the stars. Though she was always into beauty, she never though her future would include such a strong modelling career.

“I used to enter competitions in magazines and I won a competition to fly down to Sydney to watch a fashion show,” she said.

“I was watching the show and someone came to me in the audience and asked if I was a model and suggested I approach Chadwicks”. When she turned up at Chadwicks Models in Sydney shortly after, she was offered a contract on the spot.

Being back in Mackay brings fond memories of Ms Todd’s childhood and gives her mum, Nan and aunt some quality time with her new son, Phoenix.

“It is very nice to be home in Mackay. You sometimes forget how good things are at home.”

Ms Todd’s modelling life took a different turn recently as she moved into pregnancy modelling before the birth of her son seven weeks ago.

“I plan to keep modelling, while assisting well-known make-up artist Rae Morris. building my profile as a make-up artist.”

Whatever Ms Todd has planed for her future with her beauty and attitude, she is sure to succeed.
