We’ve had our eye on Bunbury’s Courtney Eaton since before Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia kicked off in April. Firstly, because she is exquisite looking, with an intriguing mix of Cook Island Maori, Chinese and English heritage plus eyebrows to rival Cara Delevingne’s, but also because she’s a legitimate slashie in an ever-growing horde of model-turned-actresses.
Eaton has a role in the upcoming Mad Max sequel Fury Road alongside Abbey Lee Kershaw, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, and is simultaneously proving her modeling chops by starring in a campaign for local swim brand Tigerlily.
Shot in the Maldives by British photographer Jez Smith, the images are the perfect teaser for the highly-anticipated film – though Tigerlily’s delicate prints and embellished bikini tops are likely very different from what Eaton will be wearing on Fury Road’s desert set. A teaser for the campaign was released back in May, but a new video lookbook and behind-the-scenes photo series shows the slashie is equally captivating in motion –- not a bad skill to have if you’re planning to make your mark in Hollywood.
See Courtney Eaton perfectly embody the Tigerlily beach babe below, and get excited for her debut big screen appearance in 2014.
