Perth model Liv Pollock at home on the farm, and A-list parties
She is in LA to attend the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with Stranger Things actor boyfriend Dacre Montgomery, but away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Perth model Liv Pollock isn’t afraid to get dirty on her grandmother’s WA farm.
In November, Pollock was rounding up sheep on a motorbike and helping grandmother Margaret Francis with tagging, marking, drafting and worming sheep for wool production at the McLeod Creek farm near Karridale.
“I was so proud of the environment my grandmother had created. It looked like a very well-oiled machine, coupled with loads of 70s music, farm dogs and beautiful wool. If I can, I would love to help out at shearing time this year,” she said.

The Vivian’s model said the secret to the softness of her grandmother’s fine wool was the low microns, achieved through lots of hard work.
Her grandmother, whom she fondly calls Mags, has been growing fine wool in the South West for more than 30 years.
The most recent yield will most likely to be sold at market to Italian fashion houses and could one day be worn by Pollock down a Milan runway.
If I can, I would love to help out at shearing time this year.
“It would be a really proud moment to wear a beautiful wool garment and know all the hard work that has gone into making it,” she said.
Until then, she looks forward to wearing a dress by Alex Perry when she and her Perth-raised beau head to the hottest A-list after-party of the year in Beverly Hills on Monday (WA time).
