Lara Bingle has described new man Sam Worthington as an "awesome down to earth guy".

Speaking exclusively to Sydney Confidential on Nova with J. Mo and Elle radio show last night (Sunday), the model and fashionista said she is "very grateful" for her budding romance with the Hollywood leading man.

"Sam is an awesome guy. I am happy, we are happy. He is the most awesome guy, Australians are just really down to earth, very protective and it is nice to have someone around like that."

On Friday, Worthington told Nova's Fitzy and Wippa breakfast duo he was "smitten" by Bingle.

The high profile pair have been hot property since going public with their relationship.

So strong are their feelings that sources close to the actor tell Confidential a proposal may well be on the cards.

Photographers have trailed Bingle and Worthington's every move, with up to 10 snappers following them at any given time.

"It has been crazy," said Bingle. "It is something that you never get used to.

The model yesterday unveiled her latest business venture, the Lara Bingle for Cotton On Body swimwear range.

Appearing on the cover of The Sunday Telegraph's Sunday Style magazine, the 26-year-old modelled a range of different looks from the collection.

"It is something that I have created over the last year and it is something I am really proud of," she said.

"It is a dream for me and to do it with Cotton On, I'm getting it out there so it is going to be a very exciting summer for me."

She says Elle Macpherson has been a major inspiration as she's attempted to build her own fashion and beauty empire.

"I've followed Elle Macpherson's career since day one and I definitely look up to her," she said.
