RED HOT GLAMOUR GIRLS

So as you may already know, the first round of the RedHotGlamourGirls competition has just ended and the lovely Evangeline Miller was in first place. Never fear though there is still time to not only vote for your favourite girl to win but also join the competition yourself!

We have also given the girls the chance to upload videos of themselves onto the RHG youtube account. To watch the beautiful ladies tell you why they think they should win simply go to our RHG YouTube.

COMPETITION TIME: Who wins? YOU DECIDE

As many of you will already know, UK Model Folios have teamed up with Red Hot Glamour Girls to offer girls a celebrity style 2011 calendar shoot in the beautiful Thailand with our legendary photographer, Alan Strutt. And that’s not all; each month the top three girls go through to the next round, with the highest voted model bagging a portfolio shoot with UK Model Folios and her own feature in Red Hot Glamour’s fabulous online magazine, Feature Girl. All three girls will also feature in the Red Hot Glamour Girls 2011 calendar! But don’t worry, although the first month’s voting is now up, there is still an opportunity for more gorgeous ladies to jump on board, so what are you waiting for? Click here to enter.

Here’s a few things we’ve learned from this month’s voting:

  • Do not be put off by competing models that are as gorgeous as you: This competition is solely based on your promotional tactics and convincing your adoring fans to vote for you. We, at UKMF are more than happy to give you pointers and feedback on how you’re doing to help you on your way, but ultimately it’s up to you, so how much do you want to win? That’s the question.
  • Do not be embarrassed to ask your fans to vote: Fans love you because you’re you. They want to make you happy and of course it goes without saying, if you win this competition you’ll be the happiest girl alive, so don’t be afraid to ask people to vote!
  • Do not worry about the impact you updating your social networking profiles has on your ‘friends’: We’ve discovered the majority of votes come from these exact sites e.g. Facebook, Twitter and Myspace. Models were worried if they updated their profiles too much with statuses encouraging people to vote then they would get fed up! We say, it’s your profile and if you want to win then that’s what you should be shouting about! Put it this way, if fans do get fed-up then maybe it will work in your advantage and they’ll vote just to shut you up *haha*

As for this month, if you’re stuck with who to vote for then here is a little message from some of the girls:

“My name is Brooke Lavinia and I’ve been modelling since I was 13-years-old. I’m from Newcastle and I love meeting people and socialising. I’m at college training to be a nurse but I have one aim in my life: to be a top glamour model.

“I’m an ex fashion student, my measurements are: 32,22,32. I love animals and I’m a member of PETA. My favourtie things are: money, stiletos, Paris and Tea (I drink 12 cups a day!) Love Evangeline Miller.

“I’m at my happiest when the sun is shining and I’m surrounded by my friends with a nice cold beverage. I enjoy going out for a rave up with my pals and I have a massive love of marmite and drink too much tea! Love Rachael Clubb

“Hello everyone, my name is Sarah Arnold. I’m a shopaholic, party girl, and I love dancing and singing when I’m drunk!”

“I’m a fun lively girl who’s constantly being crazy! I also have brains so I’m currently studying my AAT (accounts exams) at college. I LOVE partying and enjoying life to the MAX. Love Naomi White

The voting lines have opened so get voting!

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 www.Besinful.com 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.
