Ever wondered what it is like to be a jones + jones model? Want to know more about the gorgeous girls who model for us? Meet Elle one of the jones + jones models, who won the chance to be one of our models and hasn’t looked back since!
Tell us about yourself?
My name is Elle Paige, I am eighteen years old and I live in a little village in the South of Yorkshire. My house is surrounded by fields and a golf course! I am currently coming to the end of my A Levels. I am studying three subjects, Maths, Economics and ICT. I hope to go on to gain a joint degree in Mathematics and Economics. My interests include traveling into the cities (London being my favourite) and to other countries. I’m lucky that my modelling takes me to some really cool and quirky places. When I have the time I enjoy cooking and and going to the gym. I love, love, love shopping and I am always keeping my eye out for the next trends. I have a part time job in Topshop, which is great as it’s my favorite shop at the moment!
Tell us about the shoots you have been on with jones + jones?
I’ve had great fun on the jones + jones shoots with a fab team. Locations have taken us from buzzing street scenes in the heart of London, out in the open in beautiful parks outside the city, rooftops in Paris, the coastline of St Tropez and more recently, magnificent Madeira.
Which was your favourite city you visited for a shoot and why?
I don’t even have to think about this one. It’s Paris. It’s the most beautiful and elegant city I have visited to date. I love the fashion, the food, the buildings, the French accent…everything! We also great fun shooting the jones + jones video walking down the front in St Tropez. We stopped traffic and the crowds gathered to shoot us being filmed!
Out of all the photos taken of you which is your favourite?
I love interesting backgrounds/props. Although the main focus of the shoot is to show off the dresses to their best, I just love the whole look of the background and the pose in this photo. It has a real ‘model’ feel to it and I think it would look great in any glossy magazine.
What is your favourite jones + jones dress and why?
I love the Fabienne dress! It is so on trend with the fabric and style. It’s surprisingly comfortable to wear and I get loads of compliments when I wear it. I can change the colour of my shoes, bag and make-up and it feels like I have a different outfit on!
What is your favourite part about being a jones + jones model?
Well I adore wearing the outfits of course! It might sound a bit clichéd but we really are like one big family when we get together. I feel like the baby of the family and I get spoiled by the bosses! I also like that we sometimes get to have a say in the overall look of the outfit/scene/pose. Everyone just works so well together.
Who is your style icon?
I love the 80’s super model look of the gorgeous Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson. I’d like to have a mixture of their natural beauty with curves in the right places and throw in a dash of Rihanna’s glam street fashion look.

Ever wondered what it is like to be a jones + jones model? Want to know more about the gorgeous girls who model for us? Meet Line one of the jones + jones models…
- Tell us about yourself?
Well, my name is Line Rindvig (pronounced Lina), I am 28 and from beautiful Denmark. I have been based in London for six years now so I guess you could call it my hometown. I was introduced to jones + jones via my sister (who is the manager of the jones + jones stores in Paris and Saint Tropez). The two owners of jones + jones have been wonderful to me, taking me onboard almost every shoot and inviting me to parties and dinners, I have a lot of love for jones + jones.
- How did you start modelling?
I guess it started when I lived in Copenhagen 8 years ago and then when I moved to London I was often stopped on the street and asked to do freelance modelling jobs and then one thing led to another. However, I would never categorize myself as a ‘real’ model – but I do know how to pose in front of a camera haha.
- What was the most interesting shoot you have done with jones + jones and why?
That’s a good question…..hmm…they have all been awesome! I think I have done 7 or 8 shoots for jones + jones. I LOVE the team, we always have so much fun when we are abroad together, the jones + jones family. We did a shoot in Paris last summer and it was beyond beautiful! One evening we were shooting on a rooftop, overlooking the sunset and you could see The Effiel Tower from there – it felt more like a holiday than a job. Our shoot in The Canary Islands last winter was gorgeous too…oh and the one in Saint Tropez last summer – all the shoots have been amazing to work on!
- Out of all the photos taken of you which is your favourite?
I’d say it’s the one where I am wearing the peach Florence dress on the beach; the wind is blowing in my hair and the background is tourquise water. AMAZING shot! I call it the Beyonce shot because the photographer told me to to look like “you run this world”, but I have a lot of favourites thoughout the years.
- What is your favourite part of being a jones + jones model?
Being part of such a lovely team and travelling to exciting places with them. I always have a lot of fun when we are abroad together – they call me “The Diva” cause I make a lot of fun out of wearing their stunning dresses looking like a princess. My usual style is very ‘urban chick’ in camo jeans and leather jacket.
- What would be your dream modelling job?
jones + jones in New York – Lower East Side!!!
-When your not busy modelling, what are some of your favourite things to do?
When I’m not posing in front of a camera I work within Live Music Events such as Festivals and big international Music Award Shows. I also manage an awesome music producer and a hip hop group and help to promote hip hop gigs all over London – I’ve also hosted a gig myself. There is no doubt that my passion is within music!
- Where is your favourite place you have travelled to?
New York – the city of dreams. There is a lot to say about The Big Apple but over all it’s the sort of city where everything is possible and everything inspires you…..at least it does to me. I love the Lower East Side as most of my friends lives there but I am also a fan of The Bronx and Brooklyn.
- Favourite movie and why?
Hmm, I’m not good at watching movies – I am more of a music person. I know it’s not a movie but the TV series The Wire is one ot the greatest thing to ever be on TV – that show needs more credit.
- How do you define your personal style?
Urban – I don’t follow trends, I just buy what I like. Often I ask my friends if I can get the clothes they don’t wear anymore – then I spice up my wardrope with that. I don’t know anyone that has the same style as me – it’s very simple but still diffent to most. There are a lot of photos of my personal style on my blog.
- What is your favourite jones + jones dress from the new season and why?
The new version of the Nicky – with the neon top. I LOVE IT!
- Who is your style icon?
Iman – David Bowie’s wife. No doubt!
