Meet the gorgeous swimwear entrepreneur and Instagram sensation set to make a big splash internationally…
Congrats on your first MAXIM feature, Bianca. How do you feel?
Thank you so much, I ’m really excited. The team at MAXIM have been awesome and I would do it again in a heartbeat. We shot this feature at the Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, which is actually my favourite hotel in my home town.
What is your best asset?
I’m always up for an adventure and I ’m never one to settle. If you’ve got an idea – let ’s go do it. Some would say I ’m just very impulsive.
When do you feel sexy?
Looking good is about feeling good. So, when I ’m fit and healthy I feel my best. Feeling healthy gives me confidence and there is nothing sexier than a woman with confidence.
What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?
I have a swimwear label called Two Wolves, which is a full-time job, and I love it. It also means I get to spend a lot of time at the beach or going to tropical destinations for work – it’s an ideal kind of workforce.
Tell us a little more about yourself and your life story so far.
I’m originally from the Gold Coast in Queensland but I haven’t been based there for a few years now. I based myself in Bali for a couple of years, which were some of the best years of my life. It was there that my sister and I created our swimwear range. We have been at it for a few years and I ’m really excited for the next line coming out soon. After Bali, I went to LA which is where I’m currently based. The L.A. adventure is still unfolding, so I will keep you updated on that.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
I love UFC, I ride dirt bikes and grew up surfing. People don’t usually believe any of this when I tell them.
How long have you been modelling?
Well, I don’t model that much anymore – I did it briefly in Milan but these days I’m spending my time building my swimwear business. I’ve also had something else in the works for a while now – it’s to do with the fitness world, but I ’m not quite ready to talk about that yet.
What have you learned about men over the years?
The good ones are hard to find.
What do you look for in a man?
Confidence is big for me, but they also have to be fun, love adventures and be able to hang with friends and family.
Describe your ideal date?
Somewhere tropical, with seafood and endless bubbles.
If you had to take MAXIM on a date, what would it entail?
Oh, that’s easy. We would charter a plane to a deserted island where there would be a picnic, champagne and a camera waiting for us so we could shoot MAXIM and Banca take-two.
What’s next for you?
I just moved to America so I ’m working on a couple of things over there. Allana, my sister, is staying at home to make sure everything goes smooth with the swimwear at the moment and we are launching a new line soon which is really my absolute favourite! We have a few pieces left from our last line so ladies – go grab them at twowolvesswimwear.com before they are all gone! Other than that, this next chapter of my life is all about focusing on my health and fitness.
