Leah Evans: Besinful’s Most Popular Model and Front’s Number One Alt Girl

Most people are quick to assume that if you become a model life equals luxury and tonnes of fame- every one wants to be your friend, right? I mean, really what do models have to worry about? They’re beautiful, popular and have the World at their feet, surely life is peachy for them? Wrong. Leah Evans, Front Alt model and currently the most popular girl on the Besinful website lets us in and tells us why being a glamour model isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be…

Hi Leah! How are you today?

Heya, I’m really well, thank you.

What made you decide to become an alternative glamour model?

It was mainly my friends telling me that I should give it a go, I used to laugh it off but one day I thought “I have nothing to loose, I might as well go for it” and that’s how it all started.

Were you nervous about your first shoot?

My first shoot was actually for Front magazine taken by the lovely Zoe McConnell so I was very nervous knowing that they would be going straight into a magazine! However, Zoe made me feel really comfortable and the nerves weren’t around for very long.

How long have you been modelling for?

I’ve only been modelling for about 9 months now, so not long at all!

Have you received any criticism yet?

Yes! The first time was after my feature in Front magazine, I had quite a few “friends” disagree with what I was doing and I also got a few nasty messages on the Myspace account I use for fans.

How did it make you feel?

I’ve always been a little bit insecure, so it was quite hurtful. The messages from strangers didn’t hurt me, it was more the fact that friends had turned on me. I guess that’s how you discover who your real friends are though.

Did it encourage you to carry on with your career and prove everyone wrong?

Yeah it really did, sometimes the “haters” do hurt my feelings a little but then again I’m only human, but I will carry on doing what I love to do, my true friends support me 100% and that’s all that matters.

How did your family and friends react when you told them that you wanted to get into glamour?

My mum has been amazing the whole way through, she has supported me every step of the way. My Dad was a little bit disapproving and so were a few of my friends. The majority of people in my life have been brilliant though.

Do you have any insecurities that you battle with?

I have lots of insecurities, I’m just like any other woman.

Do you feel that glamour models (particularly alternative glamour models) are unfairly judged?

Certainly, there is such a stigma with glamour models. Hopefully this will change in the near future! The thing is with Glamour modelling is that there is such a fine line between the images looking classy/fun or dirty/distasteful. As long as the glamour images are taken tastefully, I don’t see why there should be such a stigma. After all, nudists are not slated for showing their bodies. We all know what bottoms and boobies look like!

Since starting a career as a glamour model do you feel under pressure to look a specific way?

I will not lie; there is definitely a pressure to look a certain way. Maybe not so much in the Alternative Glamour industry as they embrace all different sizes and shapes, but you do feel the need to make sure you look your best as the industry is very large, there’s a lot of other models to compete with!

Do you find that boys and girls act differently around you now that you’re a model?

Both boy’s and girl’s instantly think you are easy, fake, arrogant, have no respect for your body and have your head in the clouds. This is not the case, it can be quite frustrating when people have false judgements, but I guess it’s just the way the industry goes, people will always judge, bitch and hate on girls in the Glamour industry.

At the moment you’re the most popular girl on has this encouraged you to ignore any nasty comments that you hear about yourself?

To be perfectly honest, I really do not know how I managed to become the most popular girl on “Besinful”. All of the other girl’s on the site are absolutely stunning. It has really helped my self esteem and confidence though and I’m so thankful to everyone that has sinned/supported me.

Have you ever felt pressurised by the media to look a certain way?

Hasn’t every girl? I think it’s awful though. I talk to as many fans as possible and I can safely say that nearly every fan I have had the chance to speak to has said that curves are the most attractive thing on a women- embrace them girls!

Do you think that there is the same amount of pressure on glamour models as there are on fashion and commercial models?

I think no matter what type of modelling you do, there will always be pressure. I just hope that more girls embrace what they have and only change if it will make them happier. Don’t change for anyone but yourself.

Has being an alternative model made it harder for you to be accepted into the glamour industry?

My tattoos have stopped me getting into various different agencies and jobs. I would advise any girl to carefully consider what type of modelling they want to pursue before getting visible tattoos. That said, I love all of my tattoos and don’t regret a single one, they are part of who I am and I have a few more planned.

What advice do you have for any alternative models?

You can never ask too many questions. I would be happy to answer any questions any girls may have if they are thinking of entering into alternative modelling. Just make sure you do your research and NEVER go to a shoot alone!

Do feel under-pressure to eat healthily and exercise?

Not from the alternative industry. I would never loose weight unless it was what I wanted to do personally. I love food way too much to be able to diet!

Would you ever consider plastic surgery?

I don’t think so. I would rather just grow old gracefully and be “real” but we will see how I feel about this in 40 years when the wrinkles set in!

Do you feel that the Media put un-necessary pressure on girls and women to look a specific way?

I think the way the media edit images is a little excessive. However, kudos to Britney Spears for releasing the pre-airbrushed images from her latest Candie’s photo shoot. It’s nice to see a woman proud of her imperfections.

Because you have a fan base, do you think that you represent an image for girls to follow? If so how does it make you feel to know that that there are girls out there who look up to you?

I have had quite a few messages from girls saying they look up to me and I’m absolutely flattered! I hope that girls will start to look at real girls as role models more than the celebrities you see in glossy magazines that have been airbrushed.

Since becoming an alt model have there been any moments where you’ve felt really unconfident about yourself?

Definitely. Us girls always have our “fat” or “bad hair” days, but we just have to troop through them and dive into that tub of Ben and Jerry’s at the end of the day to make ourselves feel better.

Freya Mary Holmes: The Truth About Modelling

At just 18 years-old Freya Mary Holmes has already been scouted by numerous model agencies and is the face for clothes brand ‘Babycakes’. But, what most girls would describe as a dream come true, Freya admits can sometimes have its bad points too…

Hi Freya! How are you today?

Hi! I’m good thanks, I had loads of sleep last night so I’m feeling perky!

How did you become a model?

Well, I first got asked to model by a scout in Topshop, although it wasn’t that exciting; she was looking for hair models for a Trevor Sorbie hair show, but I was so excited. From then I just had the idea in my head that it could possibly be something I could do, and it just went from there. It has just come in my stride so far.

How old were you when you had your first modelling job?

I had just turned 16. I think that’s when all my independence started as my Mum let me go up to London on my own and sort the whole thing myself, I thank her for that now.

Do you enjoy being one of the faces of Babycakes?

I love it, I really do. I used to see Babycakes clothing online and always thought I’d quite fancy one of their tee-shirts so when I got asked to model for them it was so weird! I’ve also met some really great people that I probably wouldn’t of been given the opportunity or confidence to meet before Babycakes.

How did you get the job with Babycakes?

Paul found me and asked, which was really surreal as I know so many people who ‘idolise him’. It was all so casual at first that I didn’t believe it would ever happen. I’m definitely glad it did though!

Are you conscious of your appearance?

Definitely, I always have been though. I have one friend who, whenever I see her, we constantly talk about hair and make-up, not in a pathetic girly way, but just because it’s so interesting. I think I’ll always be conscious of the way I look. I’d hate to get to a stage where I just didn’t care about how I look anymore. I think self-pride is really important.

Did you become more aware of your appearance when you started modelling?

I’d say so. Obviously I was flattered and quite proud, but it also made me wonder if I should be doing more to care for myself. You read all about models having perfect skin and hair, that bothered me a bit and I started to wonder if I should start some military style regime, but I never have.

Do you ever receive horrible remarks from any girls or boys?

All the time, and it’s really hard to accept. A lot of girls think I’m stuck up and so many people do not take the time to get to know me because they’ve heard other negative things like that. In the scheme of things though it’s not a big issue, as you can’t let one person’s opinion get you down.

How does it make you feel when people are mean to you, just because of your modelling?

Most people are really supportive, but there are always a few who have a problem with what I do, for whatever reason. It is disheartening, but as cliché as it may sound anyone who isn’t prepared to let you do what makes you happy, isn’t worth your time.

Do you feel that the Media puts added pressure on models?

In some circumstances, yes. When I read about models who have starved themselves to death just to fit in with the industries requirements it makes me so angry. This media driven obsession with weight could quite easily break any girl who is trying to succeed in a modelling career. I think because I don’t do anything too high fashion I’ve avoided most of this pressure so far, and I’m not very easily manipulated so I’ve managed to stay grounded.

Do you feel that commercial models such as yourself are under the same amount of pressure as glamour models?

I wouldn’t say so; I’ve always felt comfortable in my work and in the industry in general. Being able to take things at my own pace and not being made to feel like someone being pushed into becoming something I’m not is really important to me, and so far that’s all I’ve experienced.

Glamour modelling does seem a lot more competitive, perhaps because there is a more restricted audience and clientele for their work so it would be fair to assume there may be other pressures on glamour models.

What advice do you have for any girls who want to model for clothes companies?

My main advice would be to keep your head up and stand your ground. It’s so easy to be pushed into work that either undervalues you, or doesn’t suit you and if you’re interested in starting a career in modelling you may feel inclined to take it in case it’s your only chance. I’ve always found that if something feels right, you just know and that your chance will definitely come at some point if it’s meant to.

Do your family and friends support your chosen career?

My family is really supportive of everything I do, as long as it’s within reason! Id say 90% of my friends have had my back all the way, but I think some of them can’t handle it. I don’t know why that is, because I haven’t changed but Ive definitely drifted apart from people since I’ve started modelling.

Do you find it harder to trust people?

I think you maybe just triggered a small realisation for me *aha*! Perhaps that’s why I’ve drifted apart from people. I’ve grown in independence and realised not everyone is how they seem at first. I think I’ve always had trust issues, but so far with my agency and Babycakes too everyone’s been so genuine that I’m completely comfortable.

Who else would you like to model for?

My dreams would be to model for American Apparel or Superdry. I think they take incredible photos in a style that I’d love to experiment with, plus the clothes are right up my street.

You said that your Mum encouraged you to go up to London by yourself to your castings etc. Do you think that brought you two closer?

My mum and I have always been close, shes a very successful business woman and I think the more involvement I had with ‘the business World’ the more understanding I gained about what she does for me, even though she works in a completely different industry. It definitely did bring us closer as it made me realise just what hard work is, which is something she’s always done, for me.

Would you ever consider becoming a glamour model?

I’ve appeared in FRONT Magazine before, which some would consider to be glamour modelling however, the feature I did wasn’t of that style. However, I’d do something classy for them, if I got to keep my dignity – I hate the thought of having children whose friends can point at naked pictures of their mother!

Is there a specific  moment in your life that you felt really insecure with your appearance?

Definitely.  When I was younger I went through a stage of not knowing really who I was or where I fitted with everyone else. I got messed around by a few friends and started to wonder if I was with the right people. However, with time that’s definitely changed and I think if you pursue something you enjoy, you’re bound to feel more secure about yourself in every way.

Do you still eat whatever you want to or do you feel more inclined to eat a healthier, balanced diet?

I eat so much  and I’m  literally not even saying that! I eat a lot of rubbish, I don’t think I’d ever be able to ‘diet’ and I dont think I need to. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, just because I like them. I think even if I didn’t I would feel more inclined to eat them anyway though – also I love salad.

Fay L.Bacon: owner and creator of UK Model Folios

At just 23 years-old Fay L.Bacon has achieved more then most women her age would aim to achieve BY their early 30s. Not only has she successfully set up her own company, but she has also directed a variety of high-profile shoots. A talented business women, loving girlfriend and a daughter that anyone would be proud to have, Fay lets us in on her busy life and what it’s really like working in the world of models…

What’s your role at work?

I’m the Director of UKMF. I oversee everything including day-to-day management of the company and organising/ directing the shoots, but my main focus is to promote it as she’s still only a baby after all!

How old were you when you started working in the industry?

I was 19.

Do you think that because you were still young, working with models had a bigger impact on you?

Most definitely. Nineteen is a difficult age because generally you’re still finding yourself and can feel awkward about who you are and where you stand physically. I struggled working with models, particularly those who were the same age as me because I felt almost embarrassed about the way I looked in comparison to them who seemed so much prettier, with these amazing bodies- it was like I was failing in some way. Also, I realise now the people I surrounded myself with when I was younger used me for getting people from work i.e. famous models to parties etc. That in itself damaged my confidence and made me feel inferior.

“I genuinely was considering getting a breast enlargement to be accepted, but luckily the Photographer Alan Strutt convinced me not to saying that, ‘cosmetic surgery isn’t the answer to insecurity.’ I loved him for that.”

Were you really nervous the first time you had to work on a shoot with a model?

No, I have never been nervous, but my first photoshoot was for Page 3. I remember asking before all of the models arrived whether they would actually get their boobs out infront of me and someone laughed saying, “you’ll see a whole lot more than boobs!” The next minute all of these famous Page 3 girls walked in giggling and completely stripped off. It was bizarre to me at first how they were editing their pics with the Photographer, or having a normal conversation in just thongs. You soon get used to it though and now it’s normal for me to walk in to work and pass a naked girl in the hallway! It almost wouldn’t be a complete day if a girl didn’t come in and show me her boob job!

How did you feel when you saw certain models in real life for the first time?

I was in awe of them. I thought they were all so beautiful and remember thinking all those girls I would envy for being pretty at school didn’t even compare. It completely changed my perception of beauty and made me view the average girl walking down the street a lot differently.

Were you surprised at how girls looked in the magazine compared to how they looked face-to-face?

Yes, some were far prettier; others were far dodgier! And some completely shocked me because their personalities didn’t at all add up to the stereotypical model. I particularly found that in glamour, I suppose because you’re made to believe glamour models are all bimbos so when they would turn up with posh accents and talking about their uni degrees I was shocked!

Is there a specific time for you that sticks out, when you felt unhappy with yourself physically?

Yes, between 20 and 21. I was socialising regularly with the hottest models at the time and we would go out partying all over London getting tonnes of male and female attention, like literally you could walk in to a bar and everyone would want to be your friend and buy you drinks. At first it was amazing, but then I became really self-conscious about whether people, particularly men, were talking to me for me, or whom I was with. I would look at all the models looking completely gorgeous, and because they were all richer than me, they would have these amazing apartments, cars and of course, the clothes, and I just felt like the ugly, poor friend. In the end I really didn’t enjoy it anymore and decided to detach myself from the clique, which was the best thing I’ve done. I would never put myself in that situation again.

The other time that really sticks out in my mind was going to Thailand for the first time on a Miss Maxim shoot. It was the biggest project I’d ever worked on and a real turning point in my career. Although the trip was AMAZING and I met some incredible people, I came back feeling so uncomfortable with myself physically. I was working over there with twenty finalists in the Miss Maxim International competition so they were all skinny-minnies and at the time I was about a stone heavier to what I am now. I’ve always loved eating food and anyone that’s been to Thailand will tell you the food is the best in the World, and so cheap! I was scoffing so much and I remember one evening this group of models looking at my plate and nudging eachother obviously saying I was eating too much. That was it; I didn’t want to eat again!

What made you realise that you are just as (if not more) beautiful as famous women, models, glamour models etc?

Well, I’d definitely never say that I’m just as beautiful as anyone, but without sounding too cliché I realise that beauty is so much more than just the physical. Plus, there is no way to define beauty i.e. what I think’s beautiful and what you think is beautiful is two entirely different things. However, personality and intelligence adds so much to a person’s beauty and that I learned myself through working with women that I know men find irresistible, yet I found them to be the dullest people ever because they lack substance and that is a big turn-off. After a while those type of women become very unattractive and the ones who have better personalities become more so.

In terms of who made me realise my beauty? The biggest person I have to thank is my man. The moment we met he told me I was beautiful about twenty times on that one day, but like he genuinely meant it, and he has continued to do so every day since, at the weirdest times too e.g. I’ll be talking and he’ll stop me and say it then.  I remember sending a text to my best friend the day after, the first time Callum and I had… well, you know… and I said that was it, I didn’t need a boob job, and had just travelled home across London without a scrap of make-up on because that’s how sexy and beautiful he had made me feel. It was the best feeling ever and it made her cry!

Maintaining that now, of course I have my days like everyone where I feel like a complete mingbag and I’ll say to Callum, “look how fat this is”, and “err, I just feel disgusting”, but he always makes me feel better. Most importantly, he has never been interested in whom I work with or what they look like because he honestly doesn’t care. Deep down I do believe he thinks I’m the most beautiful woman in the World and at the end of the day that is genuinely all I care about.  I have never felt as beautiful as I do now and ironically, the better Callum makes me feel, the more beautiful I want to be.

Having worked in the industry for a long time, do you see yourself differently in comparison to how you saw yourself when you first started working?

Completely. I’m happy with who I am now and all I want to do is learn more about life and my career. I really feel for the first time like I have a complete sense of identity. I don’t want to change or grow to be a better person. I do not follow anyone. I don’t try to fit in, I’m just me and I realise if you don’t like that then there’s nothing I can physically do because I’m not changing for anyone. The best people surround me and each one of them adds something to my life.

As for work, I feel like I’m getting somewhere now and people respect me. The other day I said I didn’t feel successful because I didn’t earn what I wanted to, and Callum said look at all you’ve achieved- that’s success, and he’s right. I have really pushed myself in my industry, but on my own accord. Sometimes money isn’t always a reflection of how successful one is, it’s where you’ve come from and what you’ve managed to achieve that says a whole lot more. I have a confidence now that I never had before, like I can walk on to a photoshoot with all these high powered people and say, “why not do this?” or “that might work better”. I would never have done that before.

When you first started working at Celebrity Publicity did you find that any of your habits changed? (e.g. more exercise, healthier eating…)

Initially I lost some weight because I was working full-time and commuting to London early in the morning; not getting back until late at night and it all took its toll on me, but I didn’t intentionally do that. Then I started to gain weight as the job can be very social and I was out partying all the time, eating McDonalds at stupid o’clock on the way home. But now, I’m healthy and purposely so. I LOVE food too much not to eat, but I have a good diet and I try to exercise through walking to work as I have no time for the gym. I have discovered my ideal weight and I try to maintain it.

What motto do you live by?

Work hard and what will be, will be… Oh, and be nice to those on your way up, because you never know who you’ll meet on your way back down- that’s one of my best.

Who is your idol?

My Mummy and my Grandad Michael. He escaped a Polish prisoner of war camp at 21, leaving behind all of his family, most of whom had been killed infront of him. He fled to Scotland not speaking a word of English and went on to become head chef at Unilever, hold down a successful marriage to my lovely Nanny, have three beautiful Daughters… and here we all are now. He’s my hero.

Do you have any advice for girls (or boys) who battle with insecurities?

Surround yourself with the people that make you feel your best.

Work hard and don’t be ashamed to be different or step outside of the norm. I don’t believe those who follow someone else are as successful as people who take a risk.

What’s the best piece of advice that you’ve been given?

A feeling is just a feeling and it will go. Sometimes we can all be too hasty to stick with something we’re not happy with like a career or a relationship just because we’re too scared to express how we feel, but if you do step away that feeling of hurt, sadness and apprehension will gradually fade away.

Don’t follow the crowd. I used to, but I don’t anymore. It has made me unpopular at times, but I couldn’t care less now. I don’t drink alcohol until I’m sick and I don’t take drugs so I can look like a mess. Some people think that’s boring- really?!

Did you ever feel the need to constantly look good?

I’m very vain so my main priority is to look good, I admit that, but I look good for me. That said I don’t let vanity affect me to the point that I’ll wear heels to work instead of flats when I’m walking about (what’s the point in hobbling with blisters?), or won’t bust my ‘driving trainers’ with a cute dress to quickly run in the petrol garage.

How do you feel when you hear about size zero models suddenly passing away or fainting because of their frail frames?

I think it’s very sad. I wish they could realise that size zero looks awful before they starve themselves to get there.

Have you ever felt pressurised by the media to look a particular way?

I feel pressurised to be not just slim, but very slim, although physically my frame isn’t made like that. I have a very small upper half, and a bootylicious bottom half with real thighs that you can grab- I don’t like it, if I’m honest. I’d love to have long, lean legs and everything to just be mega toned. Love it or hate it, clothes nowadays are made to fit the skinny frame; we all just have to make the best of it.

At UK Model Folios do you encourage all types of models to come and have a photoshoot?

Yes, of course. Our job is to make everyone feel beautiful and comfortable and I know we do it because models will come in at the start and try to hide the fact they’ve brought their bikini along for a possible shot. Once you tell them how fabulous they look, they can’t wait to strip off and pose all over the studio in it.

What advice do you have for girls who feel that they don’t look like a stereotypical model, but still want to come in for a portfolio shoot?

Fantastic! My favourite models are the edgy ones or those that don’t conform to the norm so don’t change a thing, just come in and see us!

It’s not often that you come across a 22 year-old who is as talented as this little lady. Not only does she take exceptional photos, but she has also managed to prove everyone wrong by making a success of herself even though she dropped out of University against the wishes of her friends and family. Meet one of UK Model Folios most quirky photographers, Julia Underwood.

Name: Julia Underwood

Age: 22

Occupation: Photography


Twitter: /JuliaUnderwood

When did you start taking photos?

I studied photography at college for two years, but that was all about film and dark room (which I miss a lot!). After that I stopped taking photos for a while and then just over a year ago I started taking my digital photos.

Who’s your biggest inspiration?

Ellen Von Unwerth. Everything she does is just so amazing and her style is so unique.

Describe a typical day for yourself.

Well, if I am working from home I will just sit in front of my computer, retouching, emailing and brainstorming shoot ideas. If I’m shooting then you will probably see me running around London like a mad person!

Who would you most like to take photos of?

Vikki Blows, the British Victoria Secrets Model, Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely and Katie Price – I think she’s hot!

Do you have any tips for any girls or boys that are longing to get in front of the camera, but can’t quite find the courage?

Get your friends to take some pictures of you or, you can even do it yourself. Show them to people, get feedback, build up your confidence, and then find a photographer who has a good reputation to build up a portfolio for. Mainly, have fun and don’t take it too seriously!

What’s your favourite photo that you have taken so far?

I’ve taken a lot of my best friend Coco Minnie, so probably one of those! I love playing around with clothes and character.

Have you ever modelled yourself?

Yes, I did a tiny bit and then realised I much prefer being on the other side of the lens. I was RUBBISH at it!

What’s the biggest success that you have had with your photos so far?

I’m proud to say that I have been published a lot already. I think I have been very lucky.

What tips would you give to new photographers?

Keep on shooting and learning new tricks.

What fashion statement do you love?

Huge rings, lots of necklaces and loads of gold! I’m loving suspenders with long socks at the moment.

What fashion style do you tend to adopt?

The ‘I didn’t know what to wear today’ style…

What’s your favourite website?

My boyfriend has an online magazine called It’s a good read and has amazing photos on it – it’s updated all the time so I never get bored of reading it.

Where has your work been published?
Nuts, M!, Zoo and Front Magazine.

How did you feel the first time you saw your work in a magazine?

Relieved that it looked good and so excited!

Describe yourself in three words.

Small, creative and independent.
