Meet Hot Import Nights Australia’s Miss HIN 2nd place winner, Katherine Lameree. She is a little pocket rocket and we were very fortunate to catch her during her time here in Sydney and get an exclusive shoot. As one of the few veterans on the car scene, she has worked on a variety of shows in both Brisbane and Sydney.
Not just a pretty face, she also possess a pretty impressive knowledge about cars. Best described as optimistic, bubbly, fun loving and personable, it was easy to see why the HIN judges picked her. Katherine is one of the sweetest and most down to earth girls on the scene, so be sure to follow her social accounts and say ‘ hi’ to her at upcoming HIN events.
UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
How long have you been modeling?
7 years. Woah. I sound old, can I take that back? Haha
How did you first start out? What was your first gig?
I was fresh 18, did a portfolio shoot for an agency and my first gig was in promotions, Midori actually I’ll never forget it.
What is your ultimate dream car?
I am a sucker for a S15, but I do love my Audi’s so I’d go an RS3. I do appreciate uniqueness as well so can I say one of everything? Just to try it out and see what I really do like.
Favorite food/place to eat?
Carolina Kitchen in Brisbane. The ribs & buffalo wings are to die for.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Curacao! Just love the look of the place.
If you could have one ‘super power,’ what would it be and why?

If you were stuck on an island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
This is hard. A lighter. Provided the island had coffee beans haha. So then I can make coffee.

How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
I still try to revive early 2000s fashion. Hip hop influenced. I felt like I was born too late. I would’ve rocked this look. Inspiration – Jessica Burciaga, Jennifer Lopez, Adriana Lima.
What do you look for in a guy?
I love humour, and down to earth, smart and a little nerdy. I cannot stand cockiness, it’s just not my thing.
Craziest/weirdest thing a guy has ever done to get your attention?
I think the e-mail request to buy my urine yes that’s right urine, takes the cake.
Three words that best describe you.
Short. Sassy. Smart.

All memorable to me, I always make new friends and have a fun time. All of them stay in my heart.
Final thoughts/Shout outs?
Well! There’s a lot. But a few stand outs. Ray, Colin & the Jamboree team, Loz & the Hardtuned crew for having my back and supporting me in all my ventures. My tanner Jodi @skincandybody for tanning me every week and working around me. Veve Swimwear for the constant support. And then shoutout to all the photographers, friends & fans who always have my back.
