Model Joanna Aoran is a stargazer
Who is Joanna Aoran?
Hi there! Thanks for having me! I was born in Jakarta and raised in a few different countries. I used to live in Tokyo for few years and I spent my teenage life in Jakarta, Indonesia. In saying all that, I have been living in Sydney for more than 8 years and I am proud to call Sydney my second home.
I have always been passionate in things that I mostly love. My mother noted my passion for photography since I was 2. Since then, my passion for modelling and photography grew in me. Henceforth, I am who I am today.
People know me as the bubbly, spontaneous and energetic girl. Interestingly, I have been told that I am quite straightforward when it comes to opinion.
Fun facts about me, I have deep passion about the universe as I am constantly amazed by it. If you ask me if I chase the stars, yes I do. I’m proud to be called a stargazer! Moreover, I embedded my heart into music apart from all of these. Singing is a way to my soul!
How did your interest in fashion develop and what led to creating your blog?
As I previously said, I have had interest in modelling and photography since I was a little girl. This passion is deeply rooted in me. Dressing up is almost like a daily dose of happiness for me. I just can’t leave the house without looking dapper and fabulous. Dressing up does not necessarily mean that I need to wear long gowns or maxi dresses all the time. What ‘dressing up’ means to me is when I feel most comfortable with myself.
My hubby is the one who encouraged me to create fashion blog. He is the one person who pushes me to the limit to be better. I am naturally not a risk-taker and I have the tendency not to try new things. Regardless, here I am. I have established my own branding.
What is a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me? That’s such an interesting question! Haha! My typical kind of day would involve a cup of organic coffee, playing with my dog, shower, put on some makeup and dress up like I’m going to see my enemies today. 😉
If you had the chance to meet a style icon, past or present, who will it be?
I would kill to meet Karl Lagerfeld. I mean who doesn’t who he is? He’s the head designer and creative director for CHANEL as well as FENDI! He owns his own label fashion house as well! He has collaborated with heaps of insanely famous people and famous brands. Most importantly, most of his work of art have been featured in international and established magazines! He’s just a legend to me!
What is one thing you splurge on and skimp on?
I would totally splurge on makeup! Call me a makeup junkie or makeup addict! I don’t mind being labelled that way! Speaking of skimping, I would skimp on gadgets accessories. For instance, I wouldn’t pay more than $30 for an iphone case. 😉
Which are some essential items every lady must have?
I personally think that every lady NEEDS to have at least few pairs of Christian Louboutin, a Chanel/Hermès bag, a statement necklace, a little black dress, few pair of nice flats (Salvatore Ferragamo would be my personal choice), skinny jeans, tailored blazer, basic tees (white/black/grey) and a watch.
Describe your personal style and influences or inspiration.
My personal style would always be simplicity. I embrace the notion of simplicity as less is more. I could dress up complexly from time to time however I would stick to simplicity for most days. In saying that, my personal style is ever-changing, versatile and unlimited.
My personal style is mood-driven and my inspirations come from different fashion icons all around the world.
What is the first thing you look at in another person’s outfit?
This is interesting. In answering to that question, I would say the overall look from top to bottom. If you ask me in particular, I would say the handbag. 😉
Thank you for taking your time to answer our questions on SimplySxy, Joanna. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
In my opinion, Sexy does not always necessarily associated with body or looks. Sexy is a woman who has a great mind, knows when to hold tongue and speak up and can stand up for her own beliefs. Speaking of sexiness and from physical point of view, sexy is when a woman can take a good care of herself and feel comfortable being herself at all times.
