CLASSIC PINUP HAS BECOME A HUGE PHENOMENA LATELY, WHAT ABOUT IT FIRST CAPTURED YOUR INTEREST?
I've always been interested in old black and white movies, ever since I was a little girl. I used to sit around with my mom when I was 6 or 7 and watch Casablanca endlessly! But I must say, old horror is and always will be my favorite. I have my father to thank for that, he's a big horror movie dork just like I am. That's how I started noticing the style and elegance women used to have back then, that old timeless beauty. Then as I got a little older I ran across pictures of Bettie Page and just remember thinking how gorgeous and intriguing she was, and just fell in love with the pinup style. I think it's really cool seeing these out-of-the-box looking women showing their stuff no matter what size or style they are. I like how controversial it was back then. It has been and always will be my favorite style of modeling. :)
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT PINUP BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
I think it's great! I love just being able to go into certain stores and websites and order clothes and makeup that I adore without having to go around my ass to get to my elbow. Pinup is hot, why wouldn't it be more noticed nowadays?
WHAT IS IT THAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT PINUP MODELING?
Everything! I'm sure a lot of people say that but it's true, hehe. I love the style, mood, makeup, hair, curves, and creative things you can do with pinup. Also the elegance of it, I think pinup modeling is more alluring than other types.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
At the moment I'm in school to get my cosmetology license so obviously I'm very interested in branching out into more than just modeling. I want to work in a salon as well as do hair and makeup for other model's photo shoots and fashion shows.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
Anything form fitting or exciting and unique. I love classic 40's/50's wear, burlesque, and I've just recently discovered the wonderful world of latex! As long as it makes me look feminine and confident I'm all for it.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I think I wouldn't mind modeling just about anything, as long as the set is just right. I do nudity every once in awhile but nothing pornographic, ever. I try to keep it tasteful.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I try to keep an open mind, I listen to just about everything! Punk, metal, rockabilly, indie, industrial. A few of my favorites are Blonde Redhead, Minus the Bear, Horrorpops, The Independents, Eisley, The Cranberries, Pixies, Johnny Cash, Smashing Pumpkins, Cab Calloway, The Mars Volta, Daughters, Iggy and the Stooges, The Honorary Title, Elvis Presley, Angelspit, Dead Milkmen, No Doubt, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Ravenettes, Agent Orange, Deftones, Foxy Shazam, Meshuggah, Wolves in the Throne Room, Silversun Pickups, Massive Attack and Portishead.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Being with my family and friends, reading, going to shows and events, and I lovelovelove to swim! I'm a huge water baby. :)
