Someone once told me that the older you get, the more confidence you gain.
When I was in high school, I was really self conscious about my height. I didn’t usually wear any kind of heel to school because I hated standing taller than everyone else. How silly! I love being tall and wouldn’t trade it for anything! GIRLS…..embrace what makes you different! It’s your unique qualities that make you beautiful!
Marc Wayne Intimates, "Cirque du Fleur" fashion show
I’m so happy my dad gave me the tall gene (thanks Dad…and Happy Father’s Day!) Otherwise…modeling on the Runway would never have been a possibility! I’m so fortunate to have had so many great experiences and opportunities! One of my favorite shows that I was a part of was the Marc Wayne Intimates “Cirque du Fleur” fashion show.
“Cirque du Fleur” was so much fun! The show took place at the W Hotel in Chicago (one of my favorite cities). We were escorted around downtown in a really nice limo and taken to Mario Tricoci Hair Salon and Day Spa where we got our hair and makeup done. We had body guards and everything!
Below is the video from the show…which I also hosted. I got to do two things I love…host and model! Although it was a first for me to host wearing lingerie haha…good times!

At the Fashion Expo wearing Gaby Couture ... waiting for the runway show to start.
Most people don’t associate the Midwest with the fashion scene…or having a fashion scene at all for that matter! Well, let me let you in on a little secret…Indianapolis, or what is known as the Crossroads of America, is really booming lately. This weekend I modeled for Gaby Couture and Cheeky Couture at the Fashion Expo runway show and also had the opportunity to model for the Tavik Swimwear brand in my very first national campaign! (Which I’m pretty sure disqualifies me to try out for America’s Next Top Model…so now everyone can stop suggesting that I try out! ps…I’ve already tried out twice for ANTM and didn’t make it either time! :( …that’s ok…check out the spoof we did for Nightlights’ Bartender of the Year episode “Michiana’s Next Top Bartender” with the Michiana Entertainer Magazine). Good times.
So anyway, I was so excited about doing the shoot for Tavik! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll help propel my modeling career even further! I can’t wait to post the photos! (I’m not allowed to post any of the Tavik Swimwear photos from the shoot until they’ve officially been released in August!) Sorry! …you’ll have to wait till then!
But you can look at these photos NOW of my hair and makeup after I got home from the shoot!
Me being goofy
It was so hot that day of the shoot! We were all melting outside…(literally, my false eyelashes were melting off my face!) even us models in the swimsuits (I’m sure the big hair didn’t help either!) Haha! Everyone did a great job though despite the humidity. It was very well-coordinated and the looks came together wonderfully. I can’t wait to see the final product!
