Emma Jane Menteath
Em, Bandaid, Monkey, Barbie, Shmodel, Mantooth, Bucket… there’s a long list. No surprise with the surname I have.
Take a wild guess 😉
173cm, yes short for a model but I always tell the clients that dynamite comes in small packages.
Blonde. Never been dyed or highlighted… ever! Proud of it.
PINK! Obsessed pink freak. Though I never wear it. I wear a lot- and I mean a lot- of black and naturals.
Don’t judge… but I love a good, fresh, colorful salad. My dad makes the most amazing salads. I grew up eating really healthy as a young girl. Pineapple, strawberries, grapes and watermelon are my Summer pleasures. I am a self confessed Nutella addict.
I’m one of those people that hate going back to the same place. I love trying new food and new places. If I had to pick one I’d probably be boring and say Simply Asia. 301, their Green Thai Curry is heaven in my mouth. No matter which Simply Asia you go to every meal tastes fantastic and the service is always impeccable. Never a let down.
Well I am not really a club go-er. I prefer live gigs. I’m a music junkie so whenever a band is near so am I. Hint the nickname ‘Bandaid’ I got given. I get called a groupie but I prefer bandaid. I like to attend all festivals too. So club wise I would have to say Assembly and for a civilized night out The Reserve.
Lots a very long list, to try keep it short and sweet…
Neon Trees, Marilyn Manson, Zebra & Giraffe, Pink Floyd, Bon Iver, Chris Isaak and White Lies.
Fave Night Out:
What makes a night is the people you out with. So my fave night would actually be an ‘in’ night cooking dinner for all my close friends and drinking lots of wine. Otherwise attending a live gig and rocking out.
Ford Mustang 1969 or a 1967.
If you could sleep with a mooiness who would it be:
She hasn’t been a mooiness yet 😉
What has been the highlight of your career (apart from being a MyCityByNight Mooiness):
Oh goodness I would have no idea where to start. Modeling had opened up so many doors for me- everyone being a highlight.
What magazine cover would you love to get:
What designer/s would you most love to work with:
In South Africa, Johan Coetzee. Overseas, Valentino.
What is your fave city:
I say it everyday and I will continue to say it everyday… I am so in love with Cape Town! I love Cape Town!
Thundercats, Transformers or the Smurfs:
Ouch don’t be hating but never watched Smurfs or Thundercats and I fell asleep during Transformers. Haha…
Do you have any weird habits, charms, items or superstitions:
I actually do. I am a Christian so before and after every job I like to prey and thank the Lord for the beauty he has blessed me with and the opportunities that I have been presented with. As for weird habits I have one. I have this beautiful ring that was passed down to me, I try hide it and keep it on till the photographer or stylist tells me to take it off. Random I know.
Which MyCityByNight crew guy would you most like to touch:
Touch? Haha that’s a bit of an obscure word to use ;)… Let’s wait to see if I meet any of them first before decisions are made.
Hollywood, Brazilian or Fynbos:
Gotta keep atleast one of my secrets don’t I.
Meat or fish:
Meat, and I used to be a vegetarian. Strange.
Dogs or cats:
I love both. I love all animals but if I had to choose I would say dogs. There’s just something so special about a dog. No matter how mean you are to it it will always come running back. They truly are the most loyal animal out there. My two dogs back home bring me the greatest joy and entrainment. I can watch them for hours.
What came first the chicken or the egg:
Well being a Christian I believe the chicken. The Bible doesn’t say “God put eggs on the Earth” haha.
Partnered up, single or on the prowl:
Single to mingle Baby.
How would you describe yourself:
