Allegra Overton reveals how her famous mother Jessica Rowe helped her launch her modelling career: ‘Mum got in touch with her old agency’

Allegra Overton is a quickly rising star in the modelling world after making her Australian Fashion Week debut in May. 

And the daughter of TV stars Peter Overton and Jessica Rowe admits that her mother helped out when it came to getting a foot in the door of the competitive industry. 

The 17-year-old tells this week’s issue of Stellar Magazine that Jessica placed a call when she first began to express an interest in the fashion world. 

”I’ve always had a dream of modelling. I’ve loved fashion and styling different pieces from a very young age, including some from my mum’s wardrobe’ the blonde beauty tells the publication. 

‘When I was in Year 9, I became really curious and interested, so Mum got in touch with her old agency from when she did modelling when she was around my age’.

The model’s Channel Nine news presenter father Peter tells Stellar that he is filled with pride over Allegra’s efforts to achieve her goals. 

‘She knows modelling can be tough on many fronts, but no matter what, she told me she wants to give it a red hot go – and that attitude makes me proud’ he said. 

Allegra has her sights sets scoring some gigs on the runways of Paris next. 

The leggy blonde looked every inch the supermodel as she strutted down the runway at the Rory William Docherty show at Carriageworks in Sydney, while her proud mother looked on back in May.

Posting to Instagram at the time, Jessica wrote: ‘Bravo our brave and determined Allegra… such a joy to see you making your dreams come true.

‘And yes I bawled happy tears afterwards…. A day we’ll never forget.’

Allegra entered the fashion world after signing with Priscilla’s Models just weeks after her 16th birthday in January 2023. 

Months later, she made her catwalk debut against the iconic backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, turning heads as she walked the AJE Athletica runway 23 collection with her teary mum supporting her in the star-studded crowd.

Jessica and her husband Peter have been married since 2004 and also share daughter Giselle.
