Love priority for Trunfio

She's an international supermodel, TV personality, jewellery designer, film actress and a savvy businesswoman.

But if you were to ask Nicole Trunfio what her top priority is right now, her career endeavours are not her real drive.

Rather, it is her two-year relationship with Grammy-winning musician boyfriend Gary Clark Jr that the Merredin-raised beauty says is her main focus.

"I think love always comes first and, of course, my family," Trunfio told AAA Weekend.

The brunette has been back in Australia this week for a whirlwind schedule of photo shoots and business meetings as she prepares to launch an online portal for her fine jewellery line, Trunfio Universe, but had to skip a trip home to Perth this time around.

However, there have been whispers Trunfio may return to WA to host an exclusive event for the bespoke range later this year.

"It could potentially happen if I have the time because I am so hands-on and I like to be involved," the 28-year-old said.

"I am definitely looking for a way to do a little trunk show for our private VIP customers so women can see the jewellery in real life."

But Trunfio insists she will be back home soon regardless, as her sister is expecting a baby and she wants to be a "responsible aunty" to her growing brood of nieces and nephews.

She is also eager to see her father Joe, who she says is on the up after being diagnosed with a second bout of bowel cancer in August last year.

"He has a very optimistic, positive attitude and he is a big inspiration to me with the way he is dealing with his difficult situation," Trunfio said.

After the bombshell's star turn as a mentor on Foxtel reality modelling show The Face Australia earlier this year, public interest in her life has increased and her social media posts regularly stir up talk online.

Just this week a racy Instagram snap of Trunfio posing in bed with a bare derriere sent gossip sites into a spin, something she says made her laugh.

"I don't really take any notice of it," the model admitted.

"I just post what I love and that's pretty much it."

With Trunfio's big movie debut alongside fellow WA actor Sam Worthington in drama Paper Planes slated for release later this year, she will today fly out to Los Angeles to meet Hollywood acting managers to discuss future film projects and then head back to her adopted base for a brief rest.

"I am going to be in New York for a couple of days and then I am going to go and see Gary because he is touring America," Trunfio says.

"Then I am off to Nice and Barcelona for jobs and then it's back to Australia."

She adds with a laugh: "It will be continual flying but it's like catching the bus now."
