World Class London Models Magazine: Please tell us about yourself.
Hello my name is Rosemary Lloyd I represent World Class Magazines as World Class Beauty Queens UK Ambassador 2018. I am British girl born in the capital of England! London at the Royal free hospital in Belsize park, I was born premature, so my first few hours was spent in an incubator only weighing 5lbs and 6 ounces haha! I grew up in a 1 parent family household with only my father and sister. I actually dreamed of becoming a doctor and actress, spent my early years in foster care switching from foster home to foster home till I moved back home with my father again after becoming well with his health, I was a very creative child, I was always finding broken things and fixing them or recreating something altogether, My childhood was very sheltered a lot of the time, I had to work a lot of the time , I had a strict upbringing. I never really fitted in and was misunderstood a lot of the time. My main source of inspiration came when I started being with my grandma, she taught me how to be a women despite her 1950’s style teachings ,she was my rock and a nurturer, growing up I spent many summers in Slovakia where I learned how to horse ride, cook, sew and paint. I even attended etiquette manners school for modern ladies and was a debutante. I always was taught so much about culture, culture, Art, film and music it was embedded in me from an early age. I attended an all-girls catholic convent school, I enjoyed Art, science, music, history, math’s and performing. The stage I really felt most at home. I started modelling from age of 10 after being signed to a child model agency. So, my life path was sort of planned out before I became old enough to make my own decisions. I had to learn and grow up very fast. Now, I been an International model for 16 years, completing a 4-year degree in neuroscience. I have won 23 titles as a Beauty Queen from the age of 15, I won 10 best model awards for my modelling. I also became a charity ambassador for Indonesia working with the Plastic free movement and the disabled people. I also continue to be a QPR suicide prevention coach to help those who have feelings of wanting to end their life. Charity work is my passion. Right now, I supported 5 charity organisations and the current winner of Pure international Miss United Kingdom 2019.
World Class London Models Magazine: Please tell us about your modelling experience?
Oh wow, where do I start! haha. I been modelling for 16 years since being scouted in China town, when I was age 10. I have modelled in the UK as well as abroad for editorial, print, look books, artistic fashion, fashion shows and commercials. I have appeared on 6 front covers such as Mag the Weekly, Image Magazine, International Face Magazine, Queens of England Magazine, Queens of Europe Magazine and NMB magazine. I have modelled in London, Paris, New York, Hollywood, Venice, Indonesia, Egypt, Holland, Portugal. I have also received recognition awards for my modelling career such as best British model. Modelling also got me into Beauty pageants. I dedicate and owe my success too my father and to those who have supported my dreams along the way. Not everyone will understand you’re path as a model, so build and do good anyway with the platform. I hope my story can help other girls to never give up on their dreams. World Class London Models Magazine: How were you discovered?
One day I was out with my father in London’s west end, I was walking down China town district looking with my family to eat somewhere, it was lunch time. Then this lady came up to my father and said your daughter could be a model, it never occurred to me to be a model. I always wanted to be a doctor or a performer, so of course I was thinking never, haha. However, my father was like we are going for the life experience because you may like it. So, I went along and got pictures taken of me and were submitted to the model agency. I got a letter stating they want to sign me. The rest was history, I started modelling and really learned to love it. I learnt about how contracts work, the law, how to coordinate colors and fabrics. Now it’s one of my passions. I think it’s wonderful to be surrounded in creative environments. Art brings meaning to the world and heavily influences our culture.
World Class London Models Magazine: What is your favorite style of modelling?
Editorial is always a classic! it’s my favorite! I love how you lose yourself in the creative element of things. Its artistic. I love taking my modelling outside the box and test the limits on ideas, I like taking it to a whole new level by not confirming what’s currently in fashion, but what can be invited as the newest fashion trend. I model and do my best and let the work to speak for itself, it’s up to the audience how they interpret it. I don’t compare myself to others I just keep my head down and stay focused, I work from heart always. I like to defy the stereotype and create new waves, like I don’t pluck my messy eyebrows at all, I stay natural as much as possible, I embrace my crooked teeth, I also sometimes get flare ups of rashes on my body during shoots, when it happens I don’t hide it, I accept this as my body and it’s okay just to be you, its raw and it’s what makes us human.
World Class London Models Magazine: Which designers did you have a chance to model for?
Over my 16-year modelling career, I have modelled for so many designers! It has been an incredible experience, I am very thankful for each designer who has selected me and believed in me, without them I wouldn’t have had this amazing career. Here are just to name a few ; ASOS, Debenhams, Caroline Castigliano, La Sula at Stella McCartney’s studios, Giorgio haute Couture, BIBI London, Forever Devine London , Fringadine and many more!
World Class London Models Magazine: Which major Fashion Weeks have you modelled in?
London fashion week, London pacific fashion week, modelled at Paris fashion week as photoshoot only, Italian London fashion week, Arabic fashion week, Asia fashion week, India fashion week, bloggers fashion week and Disability fashion week to support those with disabilities. I had the best experiences in modelling for all of them, I be participating in modelling for New York fashion week 2.0. I’m grateful for each of those platforms, as they have their own setup, identity and celebrating fashion globally. British fashion has always shown great importance in the fashion industry. As this has been one of the most flamboyant countries in artistry. However, the fashion week that was close to my heart was modelling for Disability fashion week. Because it has brought awareness on people in the fashion industry with invisible and visible disabilities. I have an auto immune condition called connective tissue Disease and Fibromyalgia, I try to manage it and not give up, as I like to prove that despite this condition you can still fulfill, you’re dreams. Models with chronic conditions or disabilities also deserve the same recognition as everyone else. It is so important to show diversity because the world is changing to bring more acceptance openly.
World Class London Models Magazine: What is your biggest success as a model so far?
It was a true honour to appear in British Vogue magazine 2012 edition that was a dream come true and the highlight of my modelling career! I was a 90’s kid so it was normal to see in British vogue magazine growing up the super model generation such as Cindy Crawford, Christie Turlington, Kate moss, Naomi Campbell. So, to be featured in the same magazine as they are an honour. I was bullied at school for my nose, teeth, freckles so I never thought in a million years I be the type of girl published in Vogue, I also have appeared on 6 front covers which I am incredibly grateful for. I also have won 6 awards as British model of the year and won Best Runway Supermodel. I also have modelled at Stella Mc Cartney’s studio and appeared on channel 5 as a model on Extreme Hair wars, I am very thankful for these amazing opportunities.
World Class London Models Magazine: Tell us who's your mother agency and why did you choose them?
When I first started out, I was signed as a child model at Models direct agency. I went on to model for the cactus agency Eve management and now London Models Casting.
World Class London Models Magazine: Tell us about your upcoming fashion shows. I'll be modelling for London fashion week this September, London pacific fashion week and Dynasty London Fashion Empire and New York fashion week 2.0. So, stay tuned!
World Class London Models Magazine: Any Editorial work?
I mostly have done loads of fashion editorial modelling throughout my 16-year career as a model. I have modelled for look books, creative shoots, on location settings, fitness, high fashion. I have done editorial shoots in Paris, New York, Italy, and many more locations. It’s certainly my favorite kind of modelling that is editorial. I love studio settings too it’s like my work office haha. I also love doing editorial shoots on locations, you get to travel a lot with this kind of job. So, a love of travel is a must. It’s certainly a career that has opened many doors and given me some of the best life experiences. Many girls usually start with Beauty Pageants, before going onto being an editorial model, but modelling came first, and modelling got me introduced to the beauty pageant industry. I was modelling from 10 years old doing editorial shoots. At 15, I competed in my first beauty pageant. So, it has been an incredible journey so far. I have so much gratitude for the universe providing me more of what I love which is editorial! The Photographer Ian Trayner took these incredible shots, he is a very talented family, fashion and pageant photographer based in Norbiton with own studio. Would just like to say a huge thank you!
World Class London Models Magazine: What major companies have you worked with in the past?
The major companies I had the blessing to model for is British vogue, Asos, Tony and Guy, Stella Mc cartney’s studios, Caroline Castgliano, a Demo model at MAC, A demo model at Christian Dior for members training makeup days. Recently I was modelling for Giorgio haute couture fashion for bridal fashion week.
World Class London Models Magazine: What would be your ultimate modelling dream job?
Honestly, it was being featured in British vogue UK that was a highlight of my modelling career. Every model dream of being featured in Vogue. I also been featured in British Tatler, that was also incredible. However, If I had another dream, I probably continue to model internationally. I love to model in Australia one day.
World Class London Models Magazine: Who is your favorite designer?
That is a very hard question! I can name my top 3! I have worked with extremely talented individuals. If I had to pick it be Zac Posen, Vivienne Westwood and my long-Time friend designer Forever Devine she has made most of my show stopping dresses and winning pageant gowns, she is also a very good friend of mine.
World Class London Models Magazine: Any video commercial or film experience?
Yes, I acted in few independent films and fashion commercials. I am an award-winning actress for the supporting role film Claire & Me. I also played a mayor’s daughter in a Bollywood movie sat Sriakaal England that is available on Netflix to watch. I also have appeared in several adverts on London film production advert and clothing adverts and on extreme hair wars channel 5 advert.

The platforms I am supporting right now is Salvation Army, (QPR suicide prevention, M.E association, Epic young teenage Mums support network, zero plastic management in Bali, the disabled people organisation in Bali called Yayasan Cahaya Mutiara Ubud, cervical cancer awareness. I am also supporting the Government of Bali’s charity organisations such as; Cooperative organisation and Gede charity organisation. Gede organisation is a plastic movement group that want to make a plastic free environment saving marine and wildlife and making our environment plastic free.
World Class London Models Magazine: What is your personal fashion style?
I like classy fitted attire, yet sophisticated elegant wear. I love vintage clothes from the 40’s 50’s 60’s. Women then were so beautiful the way they can make something look conservative and yet so emphasizing. I like Elizabeth Taylor’s taste, just perfection, I am quite a vintage girl, so I like to take inspiration from vintage clothes and mix with modern fitted attire. I don’t follow trends or what’s the latest fashion, I follow with what I feel comfortable in. I like to explore new cuts and make the most of what I got and overall love and accept yourself. I learnt to say now that I’m enough, you are enough too.
World Class London Models Magazine: What would you like to accomplish as a model in 2019?
I would like to be the best version of myself I can be, and be a model with a cause, any girl can model an outfit, but does she have a cause, a movement, an inspirational story to help other overcome hardships? I hope to inspire as many women as I can with chronic conditions to follow, you’re career despite your illness, supporting many charity platforms as I can such as the plastic free movement. I also like inspiring others not to give up on their dreams and hopes. Apart from that, I like to continue modelling internationally in more countries Hopefully, I leave behind something worthy for others that will help them to be more trusting and braver in themselves.

World Class London Models Magazine: What is your ultimate modelling goal?
I have achieved it already in being featured in British vogue, perhaps, start combining my modelling with more acting roles. I would love to act in a British feature film perhaps a period drama, that would be impactful.
World Class London Models Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind as a model?
I hope to become a helping hand for others, I hope to witness a miracle one day, I hope I can put out a message that you need to believe in yourself. I be embarking on a journey of self-development whilst helping others to achieve their dreams. I am working in supporting the cause of going plastic free, a model with a cause is what makes modelling meaningful. It’s about giving back to your audience. I hope I can continue to create new waves to stop the plastic epidemic that Is killing our wild and marine life. I would like to help other aspiring models to never give up their dreams and coach them a lot later in life. In the meantime, I like to continue my modelling, acting and just being an artist. It would be a dream come true to do a ted talk one day.
