GLAMOUR GAL: Ellie Gonsalves

Ellie Gonsalves  Live with Passion

Ellie Gonsalves is Eco Glamazine's September Glamour Gal. Ellie is an international cover model & is a very driven, positive, determined, goal orientated young woman. Her spirit, beauty and passion for life is truly captivating.  

This Australian born beauty is much more than the average girl-next-door. Ellie is a health and fitness advocate, actress, professional singer, young entrepreneur and recently became a global Wildlife Warrior for Australia Zoo

Ellie: "We have a responsibility to help maintain and improve our planet. Australia Zoo is the ultimate wildlife adventure that also delivers a conservation message through exciting and fun education. This is why I felt compelled to become a Wildlife Warrior and Ambassador for Australia Zoo. It's a dream come true for me and I feel so proud and fortunate to be able to now be sharing this journey and making a positive change in this world." 

Ellie maintains an active healthy lifestyle which includes regular exercise, natural and organic foods, meditation and yoga. When it comes to beauty, Ellie prefers organic beauty products. She uses KORA Organics range which was created by Miranda Kerr. 

Ellie: "One of my favourites is KORA Organics Recovery Eye Gel by Miranda Kerr, it has been formulated to remove puffiness under and around the delicate eye area, soothes tired eyes and protects young eyes from ageing"

Ellie was recently chosen to represent Veve Swimwear (for the second year in a row) as their official ambassador & one of the 4 “Veve Dream Girls” for the newly released 2011 Veve Swimwear Collection. 

Ellie:A Veve Dream Girl is a confident, healthy, driven, positive & passionate girl. Someone who follows their dreams with confidence & drive no matter how far away they may seem. It is about shining from the inside out for the world to see, while sharing your passion with the people surrounding you. Following your goals & dreams out loud gives others silent permission to follow their own. You don't need to TRY to inspire, your journey speaks for itself & your story naturally inspires others.” 

Ellie's modelling portfolio is amazing & includes campaigns with Veve Swimwear, Lorna Jane, Playboy Australia, Bras N Things, Bullzeye, Ed Hardy, Cellini & Running Bare - Just to name a few. Ellie has also graced the covers & has been featured in many international magazines including, Maxim, Revista J Magazine, Fairways, Australia's Surfing Life Magazine, M! Magazine, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan & Oxygen Magazine and all before the age of 21. 

Ellie: "With every job, business venture or project that I commit to, I do it with passion and hard work to achieve my goals. I truly hope to inspire, encourage and lead as many people as I can to do the same. There is something extremely beautiful about a woman who goes after what she wants with confidence and a vision to be a better version of herself than she was yesterday." 

Ellies ultimate goal is to follow in the foot steps of Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr and become the next Australian Victoria's Secret Angel. Ellie lives everyday with passion and will soon be moving to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams and advance her modelling and acting career. She will also appear in an upcoming episode on the next season of Entourage. Ellie has quickly become an Aussie Beauty Icon and her ongoing passion for life is truly inspiring. We love Ellie Gonsalves because she is a positive role model for young women and we have no doubt that this she has a very successful career ahead of her.
