JULIA GILLARD'S STEPDAUGHTER STRIPS FOR ZOO!
13 September 2010
Her stepmum is the world’s most powerful redhead, and her dad is Australia’s most connected hairdresser. Staci Child, the punk-rock stepdaughter of Julia Gillard, is getting out of her famous family’s shadow (and her clothes) in a world-exclusive shoot, which shows off her true colours… and her tattoos. Staci is the daughter of “First Bloke” Tim Mathieson, Gillard’s partner since they met at his Melbourne hair salon in 2006, before Julia became the deputy leader of Labor and long before she became PM. The 31-year-old Staci lives in New York, where she’s a sought-after stylist for the likes of Lady Gaga — but she flew to Oz last week to shoot for ZOO, just as the election was to be decided. And her amazingly hot shoot will only strengthen her rep as the “wild child” of the PM’s extended family…
G’day, Staci! How’s it been suddenly thrust into the media spotlight?
Surreal. I’ve had media showing up at my door in New York, which was a bit crazy.
You beat Julia to the cover of ZOO — so does that make you more qualified to lead this country?
Ha ha! No, Julia does a great job. But my dad actually told me a few days ago that you’d offered Julia the cover once, too.
How often do you talk to your dad?
Every day — we talk a lot. My dad is very good at keeping in touch.
Did you tell him you’re appearing in the hallowed pages of ZOO?
Yes, and he thinks it’s great! When I showed him the photos, he loved them.
So, Tony Abbott’s budgie smugglers don’t do it for you?
No! I can confirm that Abbott’s antics did nothing for me.
