Interview by: D. Francis
How do you maintain your physique and what do you feel is the most important thing in maintaining your beauty? haha you’d be surprised..I don’t actually work out at all other than walking the dogs and doing a bit of cleaning. As far as diets go I LOVE food and eat what I want when I want. I guess right now i’m just lucky enough to have a fast metabolism which keeps me slim! Also I don’t wear foundation on my face only a bit of powder, so that keeps my skin nice and clear as it’s not clogged up with make-up!
Are you married, single, seeing someone? If so, what is their involvement with your modeling career and how do they feel about your choice of modeling? I am engaged, my man is actually very involved with my modeling career and he’s definitely supportive. I do discuss everything I do career wise with him and I’d never do anything he wasn’t happy or comfortable with. We actually both started our ‘creative careers’ together when I started modelling he started doing photography. The photos done for this cover and feature were actually taken by him!
There are a lot of opinions concerning nude modeling and its definition. What is your take on the situation? Is it art or pornography? Good question, there are so many different types of ‘nudes’ it really depends how they are done. Generally I don’t feel it’s necessary for a model to take nude photos however if it’s done nicely in a classy way it can look beautiful. Obviously I love Playboy centerfolds which are nude but I feel they capture the model and scenery so well it’s really a form of art. You look at it more as a whole and think that’s a great picture’ rather than just oh shes got her bits out haha. If you just stand there nude on a plain wall that can look trashy. Also poses and the way the photo is edited can really make a difference!
Of all the styles of modeling you do, which is your favorite and why? Hmm I love working with water so I definitely enjoy beach and pool shots in swimwear. However I also really enjoy the sophisticated commercial style in normal clothes as I feel it expresses me more as a person.
You have accomplished so much in your career so far. What is next on your list and where would you like to see yourself when you are finally done? I’d really love to pose for Playboy. I do realize modelling isn’t a job for life, as I get older i’d really love to get into hosting and acting perhaps burlesque dancing in Vegas too!
Describe your happiest moment in your modeling career? What led up to that moment and how did it impact your future? Hmm I don’t think there is a certain point yet which I can single out as the happiest moment of my career. I’m very happy to be on this cover! I think it was great to realize I was developing a good fan base and just that others were really enjoying my work! Also the point when I started to get a lot of interest from magazines and companies..that was really flattering.
Who are some of the industry individuals that you look up to and how have they helped guide you along your path? Models such as Tyra Banks, Pam Anderson and Kim Kardashian I find very inspirational. They all seem like great people not just a pretty face, they also help others and use their popularity in a good way. This is definitely something which inspires me and I’d love to be in their position one day.
What is the biggest misconception about you? Haha ok. There are 2 main things that people say when they meet me in real life and get to know me..’1. I can’t believe you actually look like that in real life.’ and ‘I didn’t expect you to be that nice’. So I guess the biggest misconceptions about me are that I could be arrogant, not a nice person and not look exactly like my photos. Truth is I’m just a normal genuine girl who sits at home with her man and gets on with work haha and Yes some of my photos are photo-shopped but it’s to create a style not actually change how I look!
What are something’s in this industry that you will not do not matter the pay? I would never do anything adult or pornographic.. No way.
Rachelle you are an amazing model and I see a lot of success for you in the future, is there anything else that you would like to share or add?
