From Bloemfontein farm girl to the star of New York and Paris Fashion, we meet the gorgeous Ansolet Rossouw who is taking the world by storm!
Of our next, young South African star we could say - we’ve seen the future and it is very bright but Ansolet Rossouw’s rise from Free State farm-girl to the peak of international modelling has been so fast that her future is happening right now.
Still in her teens and sharing the New York runways with modelling legends from Naomi Campbell to Karlie Kloss, the buzz about this farmer’s daughter is off the scale.
Back on the sheep farm of her parents Dirk and Malien Rossouw, Ansolet’s life is spectacularly normal. Her parents provide a loving and stable base for her whirlwind lifestyle.
The pride of Bloem may love beauty and fashion but she’s a dab hand at farm-work too. When there are irrigation pipes to be laid or fences mended, everyone needs to know how to do everything.
These days Ansolet spends more time flying between Europe, America and South Africa than riding tractors. Her best part of it is meeting new people. The worst is the competition between models but home soil is a great antidote.
While the farm is her great escape, an international modelling career is the fulfilment of what the young Ms. Rossouw always dreamed of. Her boyfriend and aspiring professional photographer Handre Roux has known this since they met in their early teens.
When you suddenly find yourself at the giddy heights of world fashion aged just sixteen, it helps having solid roots, planted deep in Free State farming soil.
