CLASSIC PINUP HAS BECOME A HUGE PHENOMENA LATELY, WHAT ABOUT IT FIRST CAPTURED YOUR INTEREST?
Initially the vintage feel, in general I love everything that is nostalgic. At the time it was essentially a style of photography that was new to me and the fact that very few girls were doing it made my interest that much more. Also, as a model, I want lots of variety and different looks in my portfolio, so I do not only do one style of modeling. Therefore, I felt pinup could add something new and fresh to my book. I'm really into fashion, a bit of a fashionista, so expect to see more fashion geared shoots from me; risque, edgy, provocative and more of my own personal style. FA$H1ON BABE!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT PINUP BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
Fantastic!! I think it's great, it's a wonderful style revisited. It has been really great exposure for the models and photographers that shoot ONLY in this style and live the lifestyle as well.
WHAT IS IT THAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT PINUP MODELING?
Honestly, I really LOVE having my picture taken. I love teasing, flirting, striking a pose, and yes, the oh so cliche "making love to the camera" part, wink wink! Aside from that, I'm going to have to say the most exciting part was working with all the TOP pinup photographers. All of them have their own unique shooting style. Each uses their own touch and add a very different twist to classic pinup. Lastly, the viewing of the final product-THE PHOTO itself. I've shot with everyone from Danielle Bedics, Mark Miremont, Frank de Blase, Octavio Arizala, Shannon Brooke, Danielle Emerick, and Viva Van Story. Most exciting would have had to have been shooting with THE legendary Bunny Yeager, which was my pinup dream come true. <3
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Yes. I have been involved in the arts my entire life. I was a classically trained ballerina turned martial artist turned artist. My greatest masterpiece to date has to be crafting the most amazing eyebrows in the entire world, my own. I am THE eyebrow guru and QUEEN OF THE EYEBROWS™. I really love to draw and paint as well. I am an actress and I also dabble in writing. I write everything from drama to comedy and am working on my first novel/screenplay, which I hope to finish in this decade. I have also been known to tell a few jokes. Luckily, for all the comics out there, it is not an avenue I am interested in pursuing. Currently in college, I took a theatre course that infused playwriting, so now I have the playwriting bug and have also started doing theatre and want to act in plays. Perhaps at some point I will star in a play I write, a one woman show, but for now it's just film and television auditions. I guess you could say I am somewhat of "A" 20th century renaissance woman?! Modiglianiesque perhaps. :-/
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Everything that's in my personal wardrobe and or makes me feel like a sex kitten, meow!! Gucci to Pucci, you name it, I love it. I have everything from a very theatrical wardrobe as well as everything from the girl next door collegiate looks to everything you could imagine a dominatrix wearing!! WOR$H1P!! I love modeling everything from vintage lingerie, nylons, fully-fashioned stockings and pantyhose. Latex n' rubber, latex thigh-highs and garters are always hot, or anything sheer, sheer, sheer!! Fur, I love it, it looks fabulous. H4UTE. I love vintage couture, a girl can never have enough!! American Apparel is one of my favorite stores, so I have copious amounts of AA gear. Lots of one of a kind thrift store finds, vintage clothing circa the 60s-70s n 80s and lots of ebay scores. Mix in some rock n' roll gear and a sick t-shirt collection. I also have a shoe fetish, so I love modeling sexxie shoes. I consider sexy to be everything from Converse to Yves Saint Laurent stilettos!! My MOST favorite would have to be anything clown related. H4UTE!!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I don't really have a least fave.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I have pretty eclectic taste in music, but for the most part its Rock n Roll and Metal babay!! I'm way down with SLAYER pretty much all day everyday. As well as some classical and a lil Latin to spice it up. I love Mariachi serenades. I really REALLY love music, so much, that I wish I was in a band or a DJ spinning at clubs. There are so many great bands out there, so here is just the tip of the iceberg to what I dig. My top five favorite bands would be: Melt-Banana, The Locust, Blood Brothers, Death From Above 1979, and At the Drive-In. Other faves include The Sword, The Knife, Fever Ray, KYUSS, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Girl Talk, Diplo, PITCH WHITE, Sean Lennon, Campfire Girls, SPAZZ, Ryan Adams, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Velvet Underground, The Darkness, Radiohead, Die Antwoord, DON NOZZLE, Ariel Pink, The Kills, DIO, Russian Circles, Red Fang, Pelican, The White Stripes, MGMT, Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Cure, Handome Boy Modeling School, The Beastie Boys, DJ Quik and all things Mike Patton-the man, the myth, the legend with a lil Uffie of course. Sometimes I just waana keep it real and take it OG with a lil Foreigner-cos Urgent is the joint man, so chill, and oh so fre$h. Then I may be in a hella chill mood so I'll listen to the sweet exotic jams of a little band called Hall & Oates, maybe you've heard of them?! Pretty much my dream in life is to sleep with a unicorn made of gold, so I'll listen to some Johnny Unicorn: Dates or No-dates, in particular 11-25-1998, the jam is gold-solid. Followed by a lil CocoRosie maybe some Bjork, all mystical-like. Other times like when I'm working my toes on the mink rug I get real with some Playaz Club by Rappin' 4-Tay. Then give me some Death Row rap, 2Pac, some Biggie and Wu-Tang and I'm straight. I will add the new Crystal Castles is bangin' btw and lastly no playlist is ever complete without a lil Andrew W.K.!! #PARTY \m/
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I like boring things. I like to pump my body to the top. TW3RK!! I love to travel and stay at swanky hotels and enjoy traveling to uber small villages all over the world and telling the story of the spanish legend "Muy Diablo Lesbiosio". I thrive on making my brain sweat, I am forever the eternal scholar. I like engaging in deep conversations on french theory, plant biology, existentialism, and quantum physics. I love discussing the space knowledge: string theory, dark matter, worm holes and parallel universes, that kinda stuff really gets me excited. I'd LOVE to be a theoretical physicist, maybe an astronaut. Space travel would be mind-blowing and orgasmic. Most of the day I will simply just stare at my eyebrows and marvel at their exquisite magnificent royalness, their beauty is too real. Check for yourself via GOOGLE EARTH. When I get bored of that I may cruise the world wide interwebs and get lucky and win at ebay. Then I may even get a sick party clik started, work on my pretty girl dip, who knows? Maybe read some Sartre or Nietzsche, practice jumping, watch some Ca$h Cab or listen to Miami Vice music. It's just what I do for fun, so real. I love going to zoos, mostly for the silverbacks. I adore them and would love to be a primatologist living in the Congo. I also love going to shows!! ROCK N ROLL!! I love going to museums and love fine art. I also love to watch the performance art of the ladies of Bang Bros, its such a cla$$y experience. I love celluloid and consider myself quite the cinephile. I love everything from the classics to foreign films, arthouse indies, asian horror films to cheesy B movies. I love to eat, food is a major passion of mine, fine dining, that IS what I consider REAL fun. Hummus is my drug of choice. YUP!! Lastly, I just lay back all chill like, probably like the smooth pimp Aristotle did way back in the day and philosophize my existence and theorize my place in the universe. THE END
