Monique Koutoufides, the 16-year-old daughter of Carlton footy legend Anthony, will grace the runway at next month’s Melbourne Fashion Festival, the Herald Sun reports.
The Year 11 student will walk for designer Aron Katona, making her first-ever major appearance in the hopes of pursuing a professional modeling career.
“As a kid I was really shy and it opens me up a bit,” Monique told the Australian media outlet.
“I really enjoy it. I love all those Victoria’s Secret models — Gigi (Hadid), Kendall (Jenner), Bella (Hadid).”
Anthony, who also has two sons with his wife Susie, said he’s proud of his “beautiful daughter” who has signed with modelling agency Chadwick.
“I love that part of modelling that she keeps fit and healthy and it’s good for her mindset too,” Anthony, who runs health and fitness business Kouta Fit, said.
“I’m proud of all my kids, they’re all really happy and doing what they enjoy.”
Anthony, known as a Greek God at times for his good looks, played 278 games for the Blues in a decorated career from 1992-2007 and was inducted into the AFL Hall of Fame in 2014.
