I think to showing my body it's a kind of feminist movement.
I like when my photos are sexy, hot and provocative.
I'm not the classical type of model...but I have some specials. This have every woman.
You don't need to operate yourself...you can just be cool and hot exactly as you are...
It's not like a miss contest-where you have a concuration ...
It's more to give power, and self confidence for girls.
I officially started modeling in January 2018. It’s actually A photographer contacted me on instagram saying he loved my work as a MUA and he saw in me the potential to be model because I had beautiful features. Following several exchanges, we shot for the first time on January 21st. I loved my experience and especially the connection I had with Ricky Elie, my photographer. Since then, I've decided to start my career as Plus size Model and to embrace my curvy body. My first shoot was in 2016, my cousin needed models to build his portfolio of photographs. I shot with him, I loved it but I did not have enough self-confidence to start a career as a model at that time.
I love boudoir photoshoots! At most shoots, I ask to do some form of lingerie to keep building my portfolio for it. For a long time I was scared to show off my body in that way, and was afraid that it would look bad. But recently I've been obsessed with it, especially with the women's empowerment movement that's currently happening!
I'd have to say my favorite lingerie has got to be black lace. You can see in my shoots that it's what I normally wear. I love the way my red hair pops against the black!
My name is Lucilla like Plautus said: "Nomen omen" (the name speaks for itself). The origin of my name it's the Latin word Lux" (meaning "light" opposite of dark).
There is a light that leads my life. A light that pushed me to pursue different careers in different places.
“Don’t give up,
always keep pushing forward,
because one day, only the right
door will be wide open for you.”
I studied film directing, as I think it would tremendously help me to be a better actor, and it's good to see the whole thing from another angle. I loved work with students on short films, UCLA really made us a big family. Sometimes, we got to make short films with the same scripts, it was so interesting to see everyone's film turned out to be so different. Thanks to my UCLA studies, I have two films in the film festival, "Forget to Remember" and "Wine Not". They were based on my previous relationships. My friends always say that I am like Taylor Swift in films.
I agree that self-confidence is key when it comes to any type of art, including modeling and self-confidence. I would say that the most important thing to remember is your value and image. Is your art demonstrating your worth? How do you want to come off to your audience? If the art that you are doing does not reflect this, then don’t do it. Also, don’t be afraid to say no. You don’t need to be overly sexualized for success. I’ve had so many male photographers try to push me to reveal more or do more than I was comfortable with in shoots, and I’ve had a hard time always saying no, but it’s something you have to do. I had to explain to them that I’m ok with revealing more, but it has to serve a purpose that makes statements that align with my views. Create what you want to create - it’s your art form, express yourself how you wish to.
