Paige was Interested in Modeling From an Early Age
Paige was blessed with good looks from birth and she belonged to a family that was in the fashion industry. Therefore, she didn’t have to go through the real struggle to commence her career as a model. She was already familiar with the modelling world from an early age because of her parent’s association with the modelling world. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2013, she revealed that modelling was in the genes of her family. She recalled and said:
My mother was a fashion designer and my father was a model. So I was modelling for my mum’s stuff, and everybody said, ‘You should be a model.’

At the age of 14, she won the Cover Girl Cosmetics Supermodel Search. This secured her an IMG modelling contract and her journey took her to New York. She was so passionate about her work that she only visited her family once a year. Besides modelling, she also worked in charity works while she was residing in New York. In an interview with The West Australian, Butcher’s father Robert told:
“She’s done a lot of work in New York with disabled children, taking aged people shopping, working in pet refuges and helping build houses for the need.”

Butcher continued modelling for many big brands. One of her notable modelling campaigns was appearing in a swimsuit video for the magazine Maxim named ‘Real Swimsuit DVD Vol.2’ in 2005.
