Swimsuits or coats, cotton shirts or nothing at all… In this new editorial for Badlands Journal Megan Blake Irwin makes some choices

It’s 2018 and we live in a world where almost anything is possible.

For homegrown supermodel Megan Blake Irwin, that means travelling the world, shooting campaigns for Guess, Trussardi and Kookai, as well as sitting front row at David Jones fashion shows – clad in corseted Zimmermann, no less – and living a relatively normal life at home in Sydney.

Most of the time, this 23-year-old doesn’t have to choose, which is why we relished the chance to pose some – sort of – hard questions to her for this story on Badlands Journal.

In the accompanying pictures, shot by Jeremy Choh on location in Brighton-Le-Sands, Megan chooses between swimsuits and trench coats, blue denim or gauzy linen gowns, crisp cotton shirts or nothing at all… And in our accompanying interview we asked Megan to make some difficult choices, too.
