She’s the former Block winner who went on to score one of the most coveted jobs an Australian model could want: Seafolly ambassador.
But despite making the bikini lifestyle look luxuriously simple, Elyse Knowles works extremely hard for the opportunities she has been given – including when she’s running through circuits at the gym.
But surprisingly her pick for the swimwear that was going to take the nation by storm this summer are ones she hasn’t worn so much of in the past.
‘I think high-waisted ’70s florals are going be a big hit.
Everyone feels comfortable in this style and it’s a perfect base for a super cute beach outfit,’ the model told Who What Wear.

‘I use the ulta3 Illuminating Primer to create a little extra dewiness to my skin,’ she said.
Elyse also swears by having a number of different shades of foundation and concealer.
