Why did you want to become a model? I DIDN'T AT FIRST. I WAS A "HARD CORE" ATHLETE! BUT SO MANY DIFFERENT RECRUITERS FROM DIFFERENT AGENCIES KEPT HITTING ME UP, AND EVERYWHERE I WOULD GO IN LA PEOPLE WOULD SAY, "WHO DO YOU MODEL FOR? "ARE YOU A MODEL" SO ONE DAY I DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY JUST FOR FUN AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. I KNEW THIS IS WHAT I WAS MEANT TO DO.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model??? TYRA, OF COURSE. ALL THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH TO GET WHERE SHE IS IS A MIRROR IMAGE OF MY LIFE RIGHT NOW. AND ALSO MY MOTHER (MY MANAGER/LAWYER). IF IT WASN'T FOR HER I DEFINITELY WOULDN'T HAVE HALF THE SUCCESS I HAVE TODAY.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? I AM VERY EXOCTIC. THERE ARE VERY FEW MODELS THAT DO HIGH FASHION AND GLAMOUR. YOU CAN OPEN UP A PAGE IN MAXIM MAGAZINE AND FIND ME IN THERE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME FIND ME DOING A EDITORIAL AD. FOR DOLCE AND GABANA. SO MY WEIGHT HAS TO FLUCTUATE..LOL I AM SO DRIVEN AND MOTIVATED BUT I STAY HUMBLE. IN THIS BUSINESS THAT IS HARD TO FIND. BUT I ALWAYS HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THE FANS ARE THE PEOPLE THAT MADE ME WHO I AM TODAY.

What do you like to do in your free time? WHAT FREE TIME! NO, BUT I TRY TO GO OUT IF I CAN OR RELAX AT HOME. I NEVER REALLY GET TO SLEEP IN MY OWN BED, SO I TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT WHEN I CAN.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? SAN DIEGO. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL THERE. I WOULD LOVE TO GO TO ATLANTIS IN THE BAHAMAS, BUT MAYBE ON MY HONEY MOON.

Im sure the fellas will want to know-are you single or taken? LOL. I AM INVOLVED RIGHT NOW. IT IS A NEW RELATIONSHIP AND HE IS ALREADY MOVING OUT OF THE COUNTRY:( SO WE WILL SEE HOW THAT GOES.

What kind of man do you prefer; Wall Street executive or hat to the back thug? I LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH. A PRETTY BOY MIXED WITH A LITTLE BIT OF THUG. I DON'T WANT HIM TOO PRETTY WHERE HE CHECKS HIMSELF OUT MORE THEN ME, AND I DON'T WANT HIM TO THUGGISH WHERE HE CUSSES ME OUT EVERY OTHER SECOND. I LIKE THEM NICE TO LOOK AT BUT WILL HOLD IT DOWN FOR HIS WOMAN IF ANYTHING POPS OFF.

What was your first kiss like? OH MY GOD. IT WAS A DARE, SO IT WAS VERY AWKWARD. I DIDN'T WANT TO KISS HIM AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING, BUT I WAS LIKE IN THE 7TH GRADE. MY FIRST "REAL" KISS WAS AMAZING THOUGH.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?NO COMMENT:) THERE MIGHT BE KIDS READING THIS...LOL

Another question Im sure the fellas will want to know, what are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? TO THE BEACH... I WOULD WEAR A BIKINI. TO BED... IT DEPENDS ON HOW HOT IT IS. BUT NORMALLY A WIFE BEATER AND SHORTS. TO THE CLUB... IT DEPENDS ON THE TYPE OF CLUB, BUT I USUALLY WHERE A SKIRT AND A LITTLE TOP.

What is your most defining feature? MY EYES AND MY LEGS.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? IT GOES RIGHT OVER MY HEAD. FOR ONE YOU GET USED TO IT, AND FOR TWO YOU LEARN TO BRUSH BOTH NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE ATTENTION OFF. IF YOU BRUSH THE NEGATIVE ATTENTION OFF YOU WON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE HYPE. AND IF YOU BRUSH THE POSITIVE ATTENTION OFF YOU STAY HUMBLE. EVEN THOUGH I APPRECIATE ALL THE LOVE, I TAKE IT AS A GRAIN OF SALT.

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? I LOVE LOCATION SHOOTS. I DO BEST WHEN THERE IS AN ENVIORNMENT I CAN INTERACT WITH. BUT I CAN PERFORM WELL IN A STUDIO ALSO.

In taking photos, what are you most comfortable in? I'M COMFORTABLE IN JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. I AM NOT COMFORTABLE TAKING PICTURES IN A THONG.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? VOGUE HANDS DOWN. THAT IS WHEN YOU ARE CONSIDERED A SUPER MODEL!

If you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A dirty south crunk video or would you go R&B? I HAVE BEEN IN BOTH. BUT I LIKE THE DIRTY SOUTH CRUNK VIDEOS BECAUSE THEY SEEM TO HAVE MORE FUN ON THE SET AND I LOVE TO DANCE.

What is your favorite part about being a model? THE MONEY!

Whats the best advice ever given to you? NEVER BURN YOUR BRIDGES.

What are your goals in terms of being a model? I PLAN ON BEING IN AT LEAST ONE SEASON OF NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, HEADLINER IN MOST OF THE MAJOR VIDEOS, MAJOR CAMPAIGNS, SPREAD AND COVER OF VOGUE, AND EVENTUALLY STARTING MY OWN AGENCY WHEN I RETIRE.

Precious White


Precious White is a beautiful model coming from Boston, MA. I would have to say that she is one of my most favorite models! What I like about her is her radiant smile. She got some nice legs too! She's one of the classiest and most stylish models I have ever seen. Not only that, but she's also in FHM Magazine this month in the "20 Hot Dates" section. Check out Beantown cutie Precious White!

What are your measurements? My measurements are 34C - 24" - 34"

Why did you want to become a model, and who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model? I want to model because i found modeling to be a passion of mine. i have always been into art and fashion since i was a young girl. I consider modeling to be a form of art as well. Modeling allows you to express yourself through the lens of a photographers camera that is, in essence, a story captured in an instant and then put out for the world to see, I find that alone fascinating.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? I feel I bring not only beauty and brains but also an elightened sense of humor - i'm a child at heart and I love to be silly at times and have fun - so i try to communicate that through my images as well, by smiling and not looking so serious all the time.

What do you do in your regular job? Graphic design / production assistant

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to travel, go out to eat/movies/casino, ride, play pool, go out with my girls and shop.

What’s the craziest thing that you have done? Made love on top on one of the highest sky rises in Boston.

What is your favorite vacation spot? I've been to Jamaica once and I miss it, I would love to go again.

I’m sure the fellas will want to know-are you single or taken? I'm happily involved at this present moment, but I still love to have fun and hang out with my boys.

For you, what would be the perfect romantic night? Going to a nice restaurant/lounge and sitting outside enjoying a fine wine just before the break of dawn on a warm summer night, when the weather is cooling, and the breeze is teasing, overlooking the water as the sun sets.

Another question Im sure the fellas will want to know, what are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? Well if it's a public beach i like to be respectful of other peoples children so no thong for me - now a private beach, thats another story-lol, to bed i usually wear one of my boyfriends long cotton tees, with nothing on underneath - to the club - well it depends on my mood - sometimes i'm feeling stylish so i'll wear something that coordinates from head to toe like a baby blue top with a matching belt, bag and stilettos, but most times i'm feeling sexy so i'll throw on something like my strap-up the leg heels, and a black strapless mini with my diamond/rhinestone accessories.

What is your most defining feature? People often tell me that they love my smile and my eyes.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I try to keep a low profile at all times, when i can i throw on a hat in the day, someplace public like the clubs, i try to stay in the cut - but those tactics always seem to fail, all it takes is one dude to spot me out and it's all over lol

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? I love exotic type settings, like a nice persian white rug, and couch or by a waterfall, etc.

In taking photos, what are you most comfortable in? I'm most comfortable in lingerie because most of my shoots are glamour/lingerie so I've pretty much mastered how to pose them.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Essence

If you had a choice, would you choose to be on a season America’s Next Top Model, or Flavor of Love Part #2? Hahaha - um i'll take top model, sorry flav

If either of you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A dirty south crunk video, R&B or a salsa/reggaetton banger? R&B

What is your favorite part about being a model? traveling and meeting new interesting people.

What’s the best advice ever given to you? be professional at all times- never mix business with pleasure.

What are your goals in terms of being a model? I would like to delve into all aspects of modeling, not just limiting myself to a few catergories. I may be too short for runway but anything else I am open to, excluding nude/porn.

I've seen your pictures of you in fashion shows. Have you done alot of shows? What do you like about doing fashion shows? i have done a few local fashion shows. I love seeing the new costumes/ clothing the designers come out with and being the first to show it off.

I've seen you on your Yahoo Group and Myspace, are you on any other sites? yes onemodelplace.com and modelplace.com

In your Yahoo Group, you had your poetry contest which was fun and I had my entry :) Are you going to be doing any more contests on your Yahoo Group? Yes , i'm trying to build back up my member quota, once i have a decent numbers of group members. I will begin to have chat, contests, etc.

Anything else you want to throw out there to the people? if you are a professional photographer/agent/model/manager and wish to work with me on future projects feel free to send me an e-mail, I respond to all messages in a timely fashion.

Malaika Nyarai

Malaika means "angel" in Swahili and there has never been such a sweet and angelic beauty as Malaika. Malaika is the ultimate African angel in features and in personality. This model is available for fashion and glamour runway, video, and photography work. Email malaika_nyarai@yahoo.com to discuss details and rates.

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? Richmond, VIRGINIA

What are your measurements? 34B/26/37

Why did you want to become a model? I have always been an artist at heart and I love the self expression involved in modeling.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model??? My life and everything in it is created, inspired, and influenced by God. My mother inspires me to be a woman of God. African Models like Iman, Alek Wek, Oluchi Onweagba inspire me to never let anything hinder you...and African American model Naomi Sims inspires me to never compromise your principles. Being a model can be an exciting thing...you become the work of art that you were created to be. I love it!

Tell me about your philsophy in regards to your body and your loving to show it........I believe that God created EVERYONE. Your body is a temple...a beautiful temple. I model to celebrate my temple and that God who lives inside of me and uses me as a vessel. Why should I hide my body? I love to showcase the work of the heavens!

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? I bring life, excitement, a sense of awareness, a pride in my history and my people, a dedication to art moreso than "what sells." I am not the average internet model. I am real and unique. Check out my website and hopefully, you'll see what I mean.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to write. I also like being in nature...picking fresh fruit from orchards, going hiking, that sort of thing. I like cooking for others. I love to dance (African, hip hop, praise) and sing. I also like to experience new things.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? I don't have one, yet...but I would love to take a pilgrimage to Ghana, West Africa.

What was your first kiss like? My first kiss was awkward...I really didn't know what to expect or what to do...and the person I was with was a little too eager for my taste .

Another question Im sure the fellas will want to know, what are you most likely to wear to the beach? I love two piece swimsuits...bikinis preferred...and if I can get away with it...nothing! To bed? I don't believe in pajamas. To the club, if you go to clubs? I am not a big club person...just not quite my vibe...I much prefer going to poetry slams and readings...and I'd probably wear jeans and a half shirt with a series of bangles and arm bracelets.

What is your most defining feature? My rich, chocolate skin is something I really love...it has taken me time to see the beauty in it living in a society that often places lighter skin on a pedestal...but now that I see the beauty in it, it is something that I love. I also have to say that my locs really define who I am. My locs have their own story and their own glory and most people just love them.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I try to keep in touch with people who take the time to reach out to me. I appreciate the attention and I want to nurture people with the same attention that they have nurtured me with. I set aside time each day just to do that.

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? I love my shoots to have music playing in the background, fresh air, juice (preferably mango or cranberry)...and really, that is all I need to have a great time during that shoot. And a professional photographer with integrity and a great creative spirit always helps!!! Those elements really put me at ease to be creative!

In taking photos, what are you most comfortable in? Actually, I am more comfortable nude than anything else...and most of my work is nude. Some may classify me as a glamour model because most of my work is artistic or glamour in style. I think for me it goes back to my philosophy on the body being a temple of God...sometimes it is just unnecessary to adorn God's temple...it is already perfect in its natural state. Sometimes the most beautiful portraits of the human body is when it is captured in its most natural state. For me, as a model doing nude work, I have to be really creative and very careful to create images that stay within the fine line of being art. Some attempts are more successful than others, but the challenge is exciting and I love it. The challenge is to not cross the fine line between the artistic and the pornographic (meaning images with the sole purpose of sexual arousal and no artistic value, purpose, or meaning) and it can be a rewarding experience when you have successfully created nude art. Nevertheless, in clothed shoots, I am comfortable in most anything...especially creative designs. I am going to be in a few runway shows this summer in Virginia and there hasn't been anything that I felt uncomfortable in...I think that is because of the level of comfort I have grown to have in my own skin that affords me the ability to be comfortable no matter what I am wearing.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Smooth Magazine, YRB Magazine, The New Nude Magazine, Vogue, Hype Hair

If you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A reggaeton banger or a dirty south booty shake video? I would choose the reggaeton because it is much more my style...reggae moreso than anything.

What is your favorite part about being a model? The creativity!

What’s the best advice ever given to you? I have been given so much wisdom from others...but here's what I will leave in this interview...The three most important things you will ever do in this world are the following: Live, Laugh, Love...

What are your goals in terms of being a model? I want to continue modeling for the art and not the industry. I want to have my work known for its artistic appeal and beauty. I want to inspire others to find the wonder in the God, the Artist, that created them and to let that be their guide for living.

I've seen you on your Yahoo Group and Myspace, are you on any other sites? Yes. You can find a complete listing of all of my sites by clicking on http://www.malaika.angelcities.com/ and then clicking on the Portfolio section.

I’m glad that I got a chance to catch up with you, so for my last question, I want you to sum up your style and yourself with one word.....heavenly

Fashion News:Models flunk BMI, get Spain fashion boot

Spain's top fashion show has turned away a slew of models on grounds they are too skinny — an unprecedented swipe at body images blamed for encouraging eating disorders among young people.

Organizers of the pageant, known as the Pasarela Cibeles, used a mathematical formula to calculate the models' body mass index — a measure of their weight in relation to their height — and 30 percent of the women flunked, said the Association of Fashion Designers of Spain.
The association said Friday it wanted models at the show running from Sept. 18-22 to project "an image of beauty and health" and shun a gaunt, emaciated look.

The decision was made as part of a voluntary agreement with the Madrid regional government, said Jesus del Pozo, a designer who is part of the association, said Thursday.

Last year's show, also called Madrid Fashion Week, drew protests from medical associations and women's advocacy groups because some of the models were positively bone-thin.

This time the Madrid regional government decided to intervene and pressure organizers to hire fuller-figured women as role models for young girls obsessed with being thin and prone to starving themselves into sickness, said Concha Guerra, deputy finance minister of the regional administration.

Fashion shows, Guerra said, "are mirrors for many young women."

Del Pozo said this was the first time skinny models have been snubbed at a major international fashion show.

Ryan Brown, director of marketing and public relations in North America for the Elite modeling agency in New York City, agreed. "It is very unprecedented," said Brown, who has nothing to do with the Spanish show.

He welcomed the decision saying "I think it is great to promote health."

Madrid's show, which features mainly Spanish designers, is not as prestigious as catwalks in Paris or Milan but "it is not at the bottom of the pile," he said.

The impact of rejecting skinny women would have been greater at those other glitzier venues. Still, he said, "I am sure the industry is taking note."

The body mass index is a tool for doctors who study obesity. It is calculated by dividing weight in pounds by height in inches squared, and multiplying that total by 703.

If the resulting number is between 18.5 and 24.9, the person's weight is normal. Below 18.5 they are underweight. In the case of the Madrid show, organizers rejected women with indices under 18.

Brown of the Elite agency said fashion shows reflect the tastes of clothing designers, who for now prefer the Kate Moss look as opposed to the curvier dimensions of models such as Cindy Crawford in years past.

"They don't want voluptuous girls any more," he said. "It would be nice if fashion got back to that."
