The Minimalistic Model


adjective: minimalistic
relating to minimalism.
lacking decoration or adornment; deliberately simple or basic in design or style.

There is a saying; “Less is more”. In many cases, especially when it comes to the world of modelling, everything can go overboard. From fashion trends to makeup looks and even the luxurious lifestyles of well-known models.

Instagram and many other social media platforms are constant reminders of what you can achieve once you become one of the A-list models.

Let’s have a look at some of the best and most beautiful minimalistic models keeping it real and living a low key lifestyle:


Local beauty, Tanya van Graan, is no stranger to the industry. She is not only one of the most natural beauties that South Africa has to offer on an international platform, but she is also an actress and passionate freediver. Tanya lives her passion and made it her mission to add “light” on the environment and ocean life and be a voice for those who can’t speak by striving to make a change. We absolutely adore and love her for keeping it real and minimalistic. #HelpSaveSharks

This natural redhead beauty is the epitome of beauty AND brains. Jena is not only a phenomenal model and actress but also a qualified lawyer currently busy completing her MBA degree. She is full proof that you can flaunt your natural red hair and freckles, and be unapologetic about it! Oh… and she speaks French! minimalistic model

Natural, sophisticated, beautiful. These are only a few words to describe this South African model. She has been signed by some of the biggest modelling agencies internationally such as NEXT Models and BOSS Models SA, and yet she is still living a down to earth kinda lifestyle in sunny South Africa. Mieke is young, vibrant and definitely one of our local beauties leaving her mark in the modelling industry.

These are only a few of our local models who lives a life worth “posting about”, yet stay true to their authentic self by keeping it real, and also being loved for it! It is not always the most vivacious, glam & oh so sexy and over the top appearance and lifestyle that will get you noticed. Living with fewer things so you can live with more heart, passion and joy.

So how do you strive for minimalism in this world called Modeling?

  1. Inner beauty girl! Invest in yourself. Looks fade.
  2. Less materialistic things, more “real heart” things.
  3. If you are not going to use it, you don’t need it (think – all your makeup bags).
  4. Keep your look fresh and natural.
  5. Your look is on point, yet not over the top.
  6. Be selective. You don’t have to answer to every casting call.
  7. Be organised. Not cluttered.
  8. Look after your mind, body and spirit.
  9. Keep your social media pages clean, not trashy.
  10. Make time for yourself & your loved ones.

Minimalism. Less is more. minimalistic model
