How did you get into pinup modeling? I began pinup modeling after I won Miss Rockabilly Rod Reunion 2005. I had been a fan of the culture for many years but something changed in 2005 and I felt called to participate, which brought me to the competition. I met so many wonderful people on that journey. I could not wait to dive more deeply into the community. It’s given so much back to me over the years and even though I no longer actively compete, I will carry these relationships and values with me for the rest of my life.
Describe your style? My fashion style varies greatly over a broad range of music and moods; from vintage glamour, contemporary clubwear, goth, and a range of costume wear. You can find me in anything from classic-vintage glamour to sparkling bodysuits and roller skates. I’ve been lucky to participate in so many phenomenal cultures over the years that you might see me in literally anything depending on the day. Everything depends on the occasion!
What’s your favorite classic car? The Talbot Lago T-150C, it has these absolutely phenomenal curves that are neither masculine nor feminine. It is absolutely spectacular in every way and has stood the test of time for over 100 years. It speaks so deeply to the art deco aesthetic that I appreciate from that era. Quite honestly, if you look at any objects from the 1920s through the late 30s, whether they be cars, buildings, or fine jewelry, I love it all. I take every chance I get to give those lines and shapes new life because I want to expose as many people as possible to these designs I adore.
Do you have a favorite car show you like attending? I most often frequent Viva Las Vegas, which constantly presents me with an opportunity to reconnect with people from around the world. The combination of close friends and the beautiful pieces that they bring to the city is absolutely intoxicating. Those are some of the days and nights which I most look forward to throughout the year. That being said, I have always wanted to attend any variant of the Concours d’Elegance. The sheer diversity of art on display absolutely resonates with me and it’s something I hope to accomplish in the next few years.
What was the last car show you attended? Viva Las Vegas 2019. We had entirely too much fun reconnecting and growing this fabulously diverse community. It’s such a treasure to see everyone each year. Going beyond the parties, I treasure the brief moments, one to one, or in a small group where deeply-passionate people can share the communal love they have for these vehicles.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time? After thirty years in this city, I feel absolutely connected to every single part of it. Whether grabbing cocktails with my friends on the strip, toasting the town and dancing the night away at any one of a hundred different venues, roller skating downtown, or Tetris on my Super NES with those I love dearest, there is absolutely no excuse to be bored here in Las Vegas!
Favorite place to have a cocktail in Las Vegas? The SkyyBar at Waldorf Astoria. The cocktails are strong and it is hands down the best view in Las Vegas of the entire strip. Situated 24 floors up but still somewhat of a hidden gem, it’s the number one spot to take people when they come to visit.
Favorite venue for live music? Hands down, Rose Rabbit Lie. We have such phenomenal venues here in Las Vegas for concerts, but the team at this small bar inside the Cosmopolitan brings it every single night. Between the singers, dancers, and musicians, it’s easy to lose an entire night drinking old-fashioneds and dancing your heart out.
Favorite club to go dancing? This one is actually a tie! There are so many places to burn your legs out in this city but I love Marquee, XS, and Drai’s After Hours the most. With or without a table, it’s almost impossible to have a bad time at any of the three.
What’s your favorite music to dance to? I can’t pick a single genre. At any given moment, it is whatever makes my soul sing. I can’t rule anything out.
Describe your perfect date? Fantastic food. Stimulating conversation. Belly laughs. Live music. Dancing until dawn.
What are you doing to pass the time during the lockdown? Finally catching up on some sleep, reading a ton of books, and doing my best to watch everything on Netflix.
Netflix, Disney, or Turner Classics? Hmm, out of the three, definitely Netflix. It has the most variety and sparks the most provocative conversations between all my friends since everyone can watch the same things.
What is the first thing you are going to do when this is all over? Have a fantastic dinner with my boyfriend, find some live music, and dance the night away.
What would you be doing this weekend if you didn’t have to stay at home? Friday we would likely head to Rose Rabbit Lie followed by Marquee. Saturday I would catch up on my sleep before getting ready for XS, and Sunday night would be a nice dinner followed by cocktails with friends.
