For our latest installment of Meet the Muse, we touched down in Australia to catch up with the ever-beautiful Sydney Lima. Shot by Daniel Sachon, Lima wears nothing but vintage pieces sourced from a variety of local shops.

We asked Lima a handful of questions in order to get to know her a little more. See what she had to say below and check out our previous installment with Winnie Harlow. Keep up with Sydney’s day-to-day over on Instagram @sydneylima.

Who or what are you currently inspired by?

My friend, photographer and curator Antonia marsh.

How has your style changed over the years?

Well, I used to run around in nappies and now I run around in jeans.

Which Emoji best represents you?

One out of the new batch that still comes up as a square for some people – just to complicate things.

Pingu. Nonsensical and loud.

I’m rubbish at all sports.

Last lesson you learned?

Boiling an egg in a kettle does not speed up the process, it merely makes your morning coffee a tad eggy.

I really want to go to Alton towers but no one will come with me…

What is something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time, but haven’t yet?

I used to work for a film production company and always wanted to create my own work. I’m currently at the early stages of working on a documentary mini-series, so I guess I’m on my way with that. I also really want to jump out of a plane, in a non-suicidal and strapped to an instructor sort of way.

Nick Cave Live from KCRW. I like it so much I might even buy it.

What is your most treasured possession?

A Moomin.

Kinder surprises.

A cake shop specializing in chocolate fondants.
