I was born in Cape Town, South Africa on June 9th 1987. Very proud to say that my dad is Rob Louw, Ex rugby legend. I spent an amazing 8th year of my life in Italy which opened my eyes to the European culture and played a great role in my steps toward adulthood.
The modelling started when I stopped playing provincial hockey and took up competitive surfing. It was with surfing that I got spotted by Seth Hulley (ex pro surfer) at the age of 17 and signed up with Oakley America as a team rider. In that year I found myself travelling on a surf trip to Fernando de Narona, an island off Brazil.
On that trip a photo was taken at random looking at the waves which became the internationally Oakley Campaign for the year.
From there my modelling career hay wired and I have been travelling for Oakley since for their campaigns on varies shoots. Again to Brazil, Costa Rico, Bali, California, and Hawaii.
I was lucky to also shoot with Sports illustrated swimwear edition in the Maldives.
Billboard for Woolworths and KAUAI health food.
I have been on various TV commercial shoots such as Woolworths, Kauai, Oakley, Vodacom, Nashua Mobile and also travelled with fhm Calendar to Madagascar.
I love travelling, my mind sponges every bit of information on my travels and all the vast cultures and people on my travels touch me on every trip!
I have been blessed to have graced the covers of many magazines too. I was selected as “Fhm 100th edition golden girl”. Winning the “fhm 100 sexiest woman” in the world has opened even more doors for me.
I am presently slowly moving into the Television and movie industry and am lucky to have worked with Universal Pictures on a film shot here in South Africa. What an amazing experience and fun!
I don’t have a specific philosophy on life but I say “live life to the fullest and chase all those fears! Challenge them! They only make you grow stronger ;)”
I live life like I surf my waves, sometimes there are none and sometimes it is cooking. You can’t plan; you just have to go with where the wind takes you. In my case, God is my wind and the less I worry, the better corners I get blown into.
