Modeling

Kitching was born in Collingswood, New Jersey. She began her modeling career at the age of 14 after being discovered at a hair salon, initially appearing in newspaper ads. After attaining a high school GED, she frequently modeled for aspiring photographer friends, which jump-started her blogging career after she began posting the images online. Kitching often works as not only model, but also art director for her photo shoots. In a Metromix profile of "Style Why-Cons," she is credited with influencing the fashion industry and altering standards of beauty; she has also been credited by the LA Times as influencing the zeitgeist of fashion.

A spokesmodel for designer Jared Gold, Kitching was featured in his Czarina runway event. She was the face of British shoe company Irregular Choice for the fall 2012 season, and has also modeled for Italian shoe brand Kerol D and Kohl's Vera Wang Princess collection. She has been featured in editorials in countries ranging from Britain and Scandinavia to Japan; she shoots 4+ editorials per month.

Often collaborating with brands through her blog, she was chosen by JC Penney as one of five "haulers" to receive $1,000 of merchandise in exchange for blog promotion. In October 2012, her Instagram page was named as a favorite of Milkstudios, who declared that "Some girls look good on the internet, and some girls make the internet look good - Audrey is the latter."
