Bianca Rinehart

We talk with stunning Mining Exec turned mother and Vogue Model, Bianca Rinehart.

How was shooting with Vogue?
Bianca: I have to admit – I was more than a little nervous in the lead up to it – it was definitely something out of the ordinary for me! Not the early starts up there of course, but the maneuvering around dust and spinifex in high fashion! The whole team were wonderful, and incredibly patient with me, considering I am a completely inexperienced ‘model’, and taking into account the conditions they had to work within.

How do you stay fit and healthy?
Bianca: I have a very active two year old who loves being in the outdoors, so we do a lot of hiking, swimming, and general running around! When I get the chance I also love yoga and horse riding.

3 of your favourite holiday destinations?
Bianca: They would have to be –
1. Karijini National Park in the Pilbara. 2. Hawaii. 3. Italy

Favourite item hanging in your closet?
Bianca: Favourite is hard to say, but most worn would have to be my collection of super comfortable and functional Lululemon (yoga/lounge) apparel!

Most loved beauty products?
Bianca: Luckily I am quite low-maintenance in this respect. However, I admit I have been addicted to Lancome’s Juicy Tubes lip gloss for years!, I love my Hermes ‘Un Jardin Sur Le Toit’ perfume that was given to me as a gift, and I tend to stick to Aveda products for my hair

3 of your favourite restaurants/hotels around the world?
Bianca: Gosh! We really don’t get much of a chance to eat out anymore, but I am such a foodie! Actually I always tell friends of mine pregnant with their first child to try and go out and enjoy lingering over long, indulgent lunch/dinners as much as they can before the baby comes as once you become a mum it’s incredible how quickly you have to eat, most of the time on the run! I love Rockpool at The Crown in Perth, The Wolseley in London and Zuma in Hong Kong. Although I would have to say my favourite food related experience recently was baking and decorating a ‘welcome home’ cake with my son for when my partner Sasha returned from his business trip! So if that’s the trade-off for rarely enjoying long indulgent meals anymore, I’m more than happy to take it!
