Brittni is Ralph's Miss September

STUNNING Coffs Harbour model Brittni Rippon has turned a lot of heads, making it through to the national finals of the Ralph Australian Swimwear Model of the Year.

The photo really says it all but in case you’re still reading Brittni was named one of the top 12 entrants earning her place in the magazine’s 2011 calendar as Miss September.

Posing for The Advocate earlier this year, Brittni at that stage was a 19-year-old waitress with big ambitions.

Six months on and she’s on the brink of stardom.

“I certainly didn’t expect it – this was my first competition I’d entered and I was competing against a lot of girls who were very experienced,” Brittni said.

The born and raised Coffs Harbour glamour girl has also just finished filming a new music video with Sony to be launched worldwide next week.

That came about after she was scouted by one of the biggest names in the modelling industry.

Debbie Leigh Mitchell, chief executive officer of The Global Production Group, said Brittni has the “Coffs Harbour” glow with natural and effortless beauty.

“Not only does Brittni have a down to earth personality, she doesn’t understand how gorgeous she is, which is very endearing,” Ms Mitchell said.
