Two Hume teens are out to prove they’ve got what it takes to have a career on the catwalk.

Broadmeadows’ Dante Munoz, 16, who has worked as a television extra in the past, and Westmeadows’ Courtney Gunn, 16, are among the 10 finalists in the Top Model Australia competition.

The duo secured their places in the finals after taking part in a heat at Pacific Werribee shopping centre earlier this month.

Competitors donned the latest autumn fashion from retailers and took to the runway to showcase their style.

The finalists will compete later this year for a place at the Top Model competition in London next year.

Courtney said she has not done much modelling in the past and was excited to reach the finals.

“I have always been interested in fashion… I saw the application form and thought why not?” she said.

“[Being a model] really has been a goal of mine. This is only the beginning.”

Courtney said she took inspiration from Bella Hadid.

“I think she is just stunning,” she said.
