Eunice Olumide, 24, originally from Edinburgh, also works as a freelance journalist, stylist and designer of a new fashion line, Monie.

When did you get into modelling and why?

I was originally scouted by Select when I was 15.  I knew nothing about the fashion industry and was a complete tomboy.  I was very successful but took a break to go to university. Since then I have been working full time and am currently signed to Colours Agency in Scotland.

Who’s your style icon?

I don't really have a style icon as such but was once described as a 'style chameleon’ by a journalist.  I love to be a bit eclectic and 'dress for the occasion'.

What do your family and friends think about you modelling?

My mum thinks it's awesome but my dad is very conservative.  For years I didn't tell anyone but social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter mean it's easy to find out these things.

Have you got a special routine on the day of a photoshoot?

The night before I like to drink plenty of water.  I will also exfoliate to make sure my pores are deeply cleansed. I don't drink alcohol so that my skin can be vibrant and I tend to try to get to sleep as early as possible. That is if there is enough time!  

What was your most nerve-racking or embarrassing modelling experience?

I was doing a fashion awards ceremony and the dress I was given was really made for a 5"11 girl but none of the other models could fit it. I didn't fall over on the catwalk but I nearly did.  It was so awful as people like Christopher Kane, Henry Holland, Hilary Alexander and Rankin were in the audience!

Most treasured item in your wardrobe?

My Chanel vintage dress.

If you could only choose one beauty product what would it be?

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream.

What’s your favourite place in Scotland?

I was born in Edinburgh but I studied in Glasgow.  For me I just love the people in Glasgow and it is such an amazing city full of entrepreneurs and new businesses so there are many people who are very open minded and up for trying new things!

Your Favourite TV programme/music/books?

This is ultra ultra sad but Question Time, I can't miss it.  I watch it as if it's Eastenders.  I am also into Panorama and Dispatches; I suppose it's the journalist in me.  I love an action movie or a psychological thriller. My favorite book is tricky but I like thing's related to real life so Manufacturing Consent is a good one.

What do you like to eat for breakfast?

Muesli with lots and lots of different types of fruit.  A glass of water, a piece of fruit and a cup of African or Colombian Coffee.

What’s your dream holiday destination?

The West Indies or West Africa.

How long can you see yourself modelling for?

For now I am still being booked and I am proud to be one of the first Afro-Scottish models in our history.  I just love Scotland and the way that we have become such a multicultural nation!
