Homegrown Beauty making her very first debut for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA this month of August, as we welcome Jolene Horn. A lady full of determination, beauty and empowerment of what she believes in and stand for in life as a woman of today’s world.

Proudly South African Jolene is a small-town girl at heart but she’s fast becoming a household name in the BIG CITY lights lifestyle in Jozi / Johannesburg’s modeling industry. As we recently asked Jolene what it is that makes herself such a unique individual and model that every photographer wants to work with, and she says the following:

“I think the most recognizable thing about me is how determined I am. The odds were never on my side, so I changed corners and here I am.” 

Jolene never really considered herself as a model in the beginning, but about a year ago a lot of photographers started requesting to do photoshoots with her. Each time the photos looked more amazing, as the results nearly had her in tears each time, because today is one of those day’s as the door of opportunities will open wide for this gem and stunner of a lady! 

As it’s also a fitting image of embracing the true Beauty Pride and Power of Women today as it’s National Women’s Day in SOUTH AFRICA, 9th of August! , so let’s join our CEO Arne Schreuder as he interview’s MOLLBABE model Jolene Horn and Photographer Eduard Labuschagne from ModelConnectRSA.

– “RED VALVET SWAG” EDITORIAL

Welcome Jolene, congrats on your debut feature with us for the August 2021 MOLLMAGSA edition, tell us what’s your feelings and reaction right now? 

I’ll be honest, when I first received the news from photographer Eduard and Arne, I casually brushed it off because I genuinely believed that THEY BOTH had ME confused with another model. But the moment that my feature was confirmed… 

“I buried my face into a pillow and squealed for a full 10 minutes before properly breathing again. The feeling of pure euphoria.”

Introduce yourself to us and the fans and readers out there give a small 4 sentence bio of who you are and where you reside from and what is it that makes you being you, Jolene? 

I’m a small-town girl with big ambitions. I lived in Heidelberg most of my life and slowly found my way closer to the big city of Johannesburg SOUTH AFRICA where I was blessed with so many opportunities.

“I think the most recognizable thing about me is how determined I am. The odds were never on my side, so I changed corners and here I am.”

Where and how did the love for modeling all start for you Jolene, give us a sneak peek into that journey? 

I started with pageants at the age of 10. I never really considered myself a model but about a year ago a lot of photographers started requesting to shoot with me. Each time the photos looked more amazing. My latest shoot was with Eduard, the results nearly had me in tears. 

Brands started requesting collaborations, I got recruited for modelling events and very well-known photographers contacted me to collaborate. 

“This really showed me that I have what it takes and that’s where my passion for modelling really started.”

In today’s feature the focus is on the “THAT RED VELVET SWAG LOOK” what is it that stood out the most about this photo shoot and feature today? 

JOLENE AS A MODEL – What stood out the most to me is the way we were able to combine office fashion and street swag and somehow make it work! 

EDUARD AS A PHOTOGRAPHER – Jolene is a very determined model she knows exactly what she wants and goes full throttle for it, as the camera truly tells that story today. “Totally overwhelmed with joy that we made this feature work for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA.” 

Jolene in your opinion if you could describe MODELCONNECTRSA’S photography in 3 words what would those 3words be please share? 

“Creative, Different, Real.”

What is it that intrigued you the most about our style and brand of MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA, Jolene? 

I’m obsessed with the pure confidence radiated by each feature… 

“It’s so empowering to see these beautiful people thrive in who they are and look phenomenal while doing it.”

The Summer Olympic Games has kicked off in Tokyo Japan, Jolene what would be your message of support to your Country and it’s Athletes taking part in the Olympics of TEAM SOUTH AFRICA? 

These athletes are the most disciplined, hardworking people in the world. They continuously push their bodies, make no excuses for training and strive to become the best version of themselves.  They are the kind of people who in my eyes have already succeeded at life.

“I wish them all the success in the world, they are all very deserving.”
