Amber


Next up from Models By Malique is the mesmirizing model named Amber. A native of Los Angeles living in Texas, Amber is in a league of her own. What I like about Amber is that she has an intellect that matches with her beauty. Amber epitomizes multi-ethnic beauty, and her hope is that the world of modeling will recognize multi-ethnic models who are beautiful but do not have a distinct "ethnic" look. Her ambition and intelligence will make her a champion in the modeling industry that people will have to recognize. Check out my interview with the classy and refined Amber!

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? I am originally from Los Angeles, California. Though I reside in Houston, Texas

What are your measurements? My measurements are 36’ , 24’ , 36’ I work hard to keep it that way!

Why did you want to become a model? I have always loved fashion even as a little girl. I always wanted to represent women as fierce, intelligent, and beautiful. I think by becoming a model would fit my dream in perfection.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model??? Tyra Banks, she made me feel as if I wasn’t the only one. Similar to Tyra’s story, I to was always the tall skinny girl that couldn’t fit in at school. The fact that she made it even though no one thought she had what it takes, encourages me to continue pushing towards my goal.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? An entirely different look. Through my observations of the models who have become household names, I have noticed that their ethnicity is very distinct. Though that does not take away the fact that they are gorgeous but I would love to see models whose ethnic background can not be labeled.

It would be a new movement for people to see models solely for their beauty and other attributes rather than a beautiful distinct ethnic look. I would broaden the whole look of what the new America looks like. The look of today is mixture. Pure races are becoming more and more extinct. So If given the opportunity I would have the chance to open the door for a whole new breed of models.

What do you like to do in your free time? I am a movie watcher. Because I work so much I don’t get a lot of free time to relax so I like to go early or late a night and watch a new released movie. Since that is my time to relax and enjoy life, I go often in my pj’s and unwind. The movie is my place where I can be in another world, where all the problems of this world is briefly forgotten.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? I have been to a lot of places most of them only once. The only place that I have been to frequently is Hawaii. I love beautiful scenery and exclusion. Anywhere that I can enjoy life is always a favorite.

I’m sure the fellas will want to know-are you single? or taken? I am married to working and trying to build a better relationship with God.

What kind of man do you prefer; Wall Street executive or hat to the back thug? I have always been attracted to intelligence. I have learned you can not judge a person by only his looks, just give him a chance and listen to his conversation.

What was your first kiss like? I have been so focused on becoming more than just a pretty face, I may have purposely forgotten. lol

What are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? It all depends on my mood.

What is your most defining feature? My mind, people tend to judge by appearance I sometimes shock them when I open my mouth.

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 be nice to every one, you will never know when you may meet them again. The tables might be turned.

What's the worst opening line you have heard? You are so beautiful. lol

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? Exotic backgrounds scenes. I love scenes like and ocean, a jungle back drop, anything with nature backgrounds.

In taking photos, what are you most comfortable in? Which ever the photographer says would be best. As long as it’s tasteful.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Teen, Elle, Fashion Fair, Vogue (of course)

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 am not particular on music as long as it’s classy.

What is your favorite part about being a model? The opportunity that I get to represent a better look for younger women in today’s world.

What’s the best advice ever given to you? My Dad told me this “U have to know when to hold and when to fold.” lol

What are your goals in terms of being a model?
To set a new standard of today’s model.

FIRE

The next model with ModelsByMalique is the incredible model who is appropriately named Fire! What I like about Fire is that this Brazilian beauty has the lucious curves and features of a supermodel. With her look, long legs and height, she is giving all the supermodels major competition! Check out my interview with the sexy and seductive Fire!

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? I am originally from Brazil, but I now live in New York and represent NY to the fullest.

What are your measurements? 6ft 36C"-24"-37

Why did you want to become a model? I had always wanted to become a Model, but when it came to the necessary steps to take to get started, I didn't have a clue. Eventually I ended up like many young aspiring Models, doing a little fashion shows here and there and running into shady Managers and Photographers until one day I met my Agent Malique when I was participating in a volleyball tournament back home in Brazil.

Malique asked me if I would be interested in becoming a MbM Model, and then told me about all the fantastic opportunities that a Models By Malique career could provide for me. I went home and did some research and found out that Malique and his company were super legit, gave him a call and told him that I would absolutely love to be a MbM Model and the rest is history; I have traveled the world modeling ever since.


If you were single and somebody set you up on a blind date, and you got the prospects phone # and called him before the date, how would you describe yourself and what would you tell him would be a good reason to date you? Because of my height, I would inform him that I'm tall for a lady because alot of men seem to have a problem with dating a woman taller or as tall as them. I would tell a man that a good reason to date me is because I'm not like many women that play childish games with men.

Are you single or taken? I am very single at this time.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model, and what do you bring to the modeling field or game? Like I stated previously, I would have to give credit to my Manager Malique for being my greatest influence by helping me to realize that my dreams of becoming a serious Model could become a reality.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? I have become known for having many looks, so I would like to think that I bring grace, style, elegance, class, and sexiness with limitations to modeling field or game.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to play volleyball in my free time.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? Montego Bay Jamaica

If you were a piece of candy, what would it be and why? I would be Reese's Peanut Butter Cups because they melt in your mouth, not in your hand and even more important, they say that there is no one way to eat a Reese's!!(Lol)

What was your first kiss like? It was OK, because I really liked him.

What are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? I am most likely to wear a thong to the beach, absolutely nothing to bed, and a hot, slinky dress to the club.

What is your most defining feature? I would have to say my long legs.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I'll just be polite to others and always remember that it is a blessing to be considered beautiful by so many people. It also never hurts consider the alternative to getting alot of attention.

What's the worst opening line you have heard? Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven??

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Forbes Magazine’s Wealthiest Issue, but I would settle for Vogue.(Lol)

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 think that I am more of an R&B Girl because when I think of women in R&B Videos they are usually the love interest of the R&B Artist, but when I think of women in dirty south crunk videos, they are usually dancers.

What is your favorite part about being a model? Modeling gives you the opportunity to travel the world and meet interesting people of many cultures.

Who do you prefer, Tyra or Naomi? I prefer Naomi's modeling look, but Tyra's personality.

Anything else you want to throw out there to the people? Yeah, I would like to give a shout-out to my Manager Malique and all the beautiful ladies of Models By Malique Inc.!I would also like to say to all the aspiring Models out there, I'm a witness to the fact that MbM makes dreams come true!!!

Interview with Malique, founder of ModelsbyMalique

ModelsbyMalique is a modeling agency started by Malique, a man with years of experience in the modeling industry. On this weblog I like to educate people about the business behind the modeling industry, in an effort to educate aspiring models and others who want to get into this industry. With this in mind, I wanted to interview the man behind ModelsbyMalique, Malique. Not only that, this week I will be focusing in on the lovely ladies of ModelsbyMalique. But first , check out my informative interview with model agent Malique!

First of all, tell me about your modeling agency and what you do.

I am a successful Model Agent that travels the world in search of beauty, and I run a first-class agency that has a world-wide reputation for treating its Models with the respect and dignity that all women of the world deserve to be treated with. ModelsByMaliqueis a Model Agency and Model Referral Agency that helps connect Models to Model Agencies, Commercial / VideoProducers, Professional Photographers, and MagazineOwners. ModelsByMalique is also known for portraying our Models in extremely classy and eloquent photo shoots only taken by top-notch Photographers, and also helps many aspiring Models free of charge!!

How long have you been working with models and workingin the modeling business?

I have been in the Modeling business for the past seven years.

How did you get into the modeling business?

I was a Music Producer and Agent before I became a Model Agent, so I was always in need of Models for videos and promotional events.Working with Models allowed me to hear many horrific stories from aspiring Models desperate to break into the Modeling Industry that could not afford the high cost of Professional Photographers, Wardrobe Stylist,Travel,Comp-Cards, and Modeling Portfolios, finding themselves desperately taking dangerous risk like traveling thousands of miles to meet total strangers who claimed to be professional photographers only to find them to be psychos and/or frauds, and in famous cases in which Aspiring Models spending thousands of dollars on professional photographs (requested by an Agency)only to find their money stolen and without a modeling contract. So I decided to start the ModelsByMalique Agency to help as many serious Models and aspiring Models as I possibly can.

For anybody wanting to do what you are doing, how do you suggest they start?

I would suggest that the aspiring Agent do plenty of research to assure that there is a need and/or desire for the type of Models they plan on representing, and that they do countless hours of networking to make sure that they have the proper connections that it will take to secure jobs that are desirable and appealing to top-notch Models. The absolute most important thing is make sure that your Models are not only sexy, but unique, dependable, photogenic, easy towork with, and keep the hunger to take the industry bystorm!

What is your biggest challenge in working in the modeling business?

Well, there a 2 equally big challenges. The first challenge is getting models to aspire to think big and long-term because every modeling offer is not a good offer, meaning that one video or photoshoot with the wrong magazine could result in a model being negatively type-cast for life!! The second is getting Models to understand the importance of deadlines.

When working with a model or potential model, what do you look for in anybody you work with?

Although ModelsByMalique works with Models with many different shapes, sizes, and colors, I like to think that all of my Models have what I like to call "the Models By Malique look", this look consist of style, sex appeal, and class! When a client or fan looks at our Models, they may find a particular Model to be more to their personal liking, but they are always going to leave our portfolio, website, fashion show, or magazine with a sense that they have just beheld visions of beauty. With all the ways to get exposure, like the net and all the magazines, it seems easy to get into the business and then you have all the websites out there that cater to anybody who wants to come up in the business.

What do you suggest to any prospective model before they invest their time and money going the “netmodel” route?

Ten Tips for Models - With the Internet in Mind

Getting started:
*Ask yourself if you are serious about modeling.

*Take an honest look at yourself and decide what type of modeling would be best for you.

*Find some books on modeling and/or photography.

*Get some photos taken that you can be proud of andmake sure people see them.

*Get some photos scanned and get some web space somewhere. If you have to, use free web servers likeTripod, or Geocities.

*Put your portfolio on some of the popular modeling sites.

*Visit some modeling message boards and read some posts to learn what you can about modeling.

*Post some messages with some pertinent info and photos.

*Be honest, reliable, and enthusiastic. Go for it!

Who are your favorite popular models (like Angel LolaLuv, Melyssa Ford, Lyric) out there, and who out there do you wish you had worked with before they achieved fame?

Victoria's Secret "Angel,Selita Ebanks, Naomi Campbell, and Melyssa Ford. If I had the oppertunity to work with Models before they acheived fame, the Models would be: Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

Tell us about some of the models you are working with?

ModelsbyMalique has had the pleasure of working with thousands of beautiful women from all over the world, professional and amateur. I would like for this article to focus on our latest acquisitions of beauty.

What is the future of ModelsbyMalique?

As long as there are beautiful women and Connoisseurs of beauty, ModelsByMalique will not only be around, but shall always present to you the most beautiful women that the planet has to offer.

Before I wrap this up, anything else you want to throw out to the people reading this blog?

ModelsByMalique's goal is to redefine the preconceived thoughts of what Models of color represent. Far too many people in the industry feel that all Models of color only aspire to be is Video Vixens and take risqué photos for swimsuit magazines, but being a Model Agent and having inside knowledge of the business, I realize that stereotype couldn't be farther from the truth. On December 14, 2006 the Models By Malique Online Store was founded to help Models that can not afford to get into the business by arranging photo shoots with professional photographers, paying for their expenses, building their portfolios, and exposing their work to countless Agencies world-wide!! ALL of the images on our ModelsByMalique clothing were designed by professional designers from MAJOR clothing labels!!You can check our gear out at:http://www.cafepress.com/modelsbymalique

Supermodel Karolina Kurkova's steps to supermodel self-confidence

1. Two weeks prior to any big event (like a cover shoot), cut all sugar, processed foods and flour out of your diet.

2. Eat raw foods and drink water with fresh lemon. A lot of it. Raw foods can give you the energy to keep that confidence boosted.

3. Cut out dairy and salt. They make you feel bloated.

4. If you have to have some type of sweet taste in your mouth, eat fruit or try popping a lemon Riccola. The lozenge has a little sweetness but is still natural and good for you.

5. Prep your body for feeling beautiful. In this order: take a steam, get a scrub to get rid of dead skin, get a massage with essential oils to get the moisture back in, and put a little shimmer cream on that has some self-tanner in it for that sun-kissed look.

6. Wear one super-sexy thing, no matter what. Either a lingerie set, a sheer blouse, low-cut shirt or whatever highlights your best asset. If you love it, flaunt it!

7. Find your own feel-great mood music. If you have some music you know just makes you feel invincible, blast it from every speaker you have and listen to it morning to night to lift your mood and self-confidence. It will put you in the power zone.

8. You should work out for two weeks before, but if you can't, at least work out on the day of the date or event. It not only gets rid of extra water weight, but it gives you a little tone, too. Most importantly, though, it gives you a surge of "move out of the way, here I come" attitude that attracts everyone.

White on black: the racism in women's glossies

The queen of Britain's model agents claims that ethnic cover stars are much scarcer now than they were 25 years ago. Arifa Akbar reports

Way back in 1982, when Carole White co-founded the world- famous Premier Model Management agency with her brother, Owen, black faces were all the rage with fashion editors, with the likes of Iman, Pat Cleveland and the teen sensation Naomi Campbell gracing the covers of magazines.

More than 25 years later and White says the industry's progressive instincts have gone into reverse, as editors have taken a view that only white faces sell at news-stands.

"Whenever I ask the question, it's always about sales and the idea that blue eyes and blonde hair sells. I'm not sure I believe that. If fashion editors were a bit braver and tried out black, Asian and Chinese models, our eyes would be easier on that look.

"They don't give the opportunities to these girls. Given that there are so many variations of skin, particularly in London, it's a backward step being taken if no one is brave enough to give ethnic girls a chance," she says. Read more here!
