Our newest campaign star, the quirky and adorable Shelby Hamilton, is also kind of a creative genius.
Permission to go totally fangirl!
You’ve clocked up over 125 thousand Insty followers. As a teen, how has being ‘internet famous’ changed your life?
Oh thank you! I don't really think about it but when I do I get pretty freaked out. It hasn't changed me but it has changed my life quite dramatically.I've moved states and live away from my mum now, so that's kind of weird!
What advice do you have for girls who want to follow in your footsteps?
The advice I always give to people is to never go into something to be "famous" and for the followers. Always put your heart into it otherwise it won’t happen.Be passionate. Be yourself and if it's meant to be it will fall into place.
How do you like to connect with your followers?
I like to creep on their Instagrams and spam them with likes and comments. I love to tweet them back and reply to their messages as much as I can.They're all really great and funny people.
We’re in awe of your artistic Instagram feed. What inspires your creative and personal style?
My style stems from characters and being able to portray a type of person through my clothing and art. I just love being inspired.I wear things that make me feel comfy and happy.

Can you share some of your personal ambitions?
I just want to create. Creating things and expressing myself is what keeps me alive, it’s my escape. I want to see where all of this takes me.It would be so cool to be a fashion icon. I also want to own 10 dogs.
You recently attended your first Australian Fashion Week. Was it awesome?
Yes!!! It was so much fun and it's definitely something I can see myself doing more of in the future. It's such a perfect environment for me and I LOVE dressing up.I pretty much hyperventilate when I see pretty clothes so for me it was heaven!
What do you love to do with your girlfriends?
I love to laugh with them until my tummy hurts and just be a weirdo. When I hang out with my friends we just have a lazy day and eat and watch movies.
If you had the power to change the world, what would you do?
I would really like to make everyone more open minded. It's a really cool thing to be able to put yourself in someone else's shoes. I want everyone to open their eyes and take care of our world and the animals and people in it. I want everyone to have a kind heart.
