Sian Lilly is a 19 year old model & YouTuber from London signed to Storm Model Management. With 122K followers on YouTube & 22K on Instagram, it’s fair to say she’s someone a lot of girls look up to. We caught up with Sian to chat about modelling, style & her fave ego shoes (obvs)…

My name is Sian, I finished my A levels last year & decided to become a full time model and Youtuber. I spend most of my time eating (literally).
How did you end up where you are in life right now?
When I was at school, I would sit in my lessons so bored & unmotivated so I promised myself I would push for success in something creative & something I was actually passionate about.
What’s been your proudest moment to date?
Probably modelling for the Adidas campaign a couple months ago. I remember saving up to buy something from there when I was younger, so it’s surreal to be modelling for them now! Either that or hitting 150k subscribers on YouTube!
Who or what would you cite as your biggest inspiration?
I’m always really inspired by strong independent women. I follow a lot of women on Instagram like Huda Beauty & Farah Dhukai who have created their own business from scratch & really built it up to something huge which I love!
What’s on your playlist right now?
Justin Bieber … always.
Describe your style in three words…
Monochromatic, modern and simple
What’s one thing you cannot live without?
My eyebrow kit from Seventeen. I hardly wear makeup on a day to day basis but I always make sure I fill in my brows.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be doing?
I find property development super interesting so maybe something in that field.
Who would be your dream brand / person to model for?
YSL beauty 100%, I find YSL in general so elegant & iconic!
What are you most looking forward to in 2017?
Definitely making the most out of all the opportunities I’ve been given, especially through my YouTube channel, Sian Lilly – I’m so excited to see where it takes me this year! I’m just super grateful for everything I have so I just want to make the most of it!
Fave Ego shoes?
The Cosmic Lace Up Black Ankle Boots, as seen in the pictures below.
