Fox of the Week (5/11/10): Andrea Marie The Italian Dimepiece
Andrea Marie (38DD-27-40) aka The Italian Dimepiece is a model from Chicago. She discusses her best feature, her first photoshoot, and models she admires.
What would you say is your best feature?
My lips. I think they are absolutely perfect! Full, soft, and so damn sexy. I always pout them like crazy in my pics!
What sets you apart from other models?
I do things myself. I don't sit on my ass waiting on others to make moves for me. I'm a headstrong go-getter. Plus I work a full-time job, so I have something to fall back on.
Describe how you felt at your first photoshoot.
I was a nervous wreck! I was so worried about every little thing, and I kept asking my photographer dumb questions, but everything turned out amazing. It was a great learning experience and I will always remember it.
What do you like most about modeling?
Like any woman, I absolutely LOVE make-up, lingerie, jewelry, and high heels. I feel that nothing is sexier than being someone's fantasy. Also, I love traveling all over the country for shoots and parties. The jet-setting lifestyle never seems to get old.
What do you find most challenging?
The most challenging part has to be all the pre-conceived notions that people have about glamour models. Not all of us sleep our way to the top. I am a strong-willed woman that was raised with class, and I will NEVER let someone belittle me for a lousy "15 minutes of fame".
Who are some models you admire? Why?
I really admire Jesika Maximus, Jessica Burciaga, and Kim Kardashian because they are all beautiful ethnic women that have amazing natural curves and are all so naturally photogenic. I also admire my BFF Jayonna Fabro because she's such a smart, sexy, business minded woman that doesn't let the industry change her.
If you could only accomplish one more thing in your career what would it be?
I would like to become a mainstream model. I've already shot for a bunch of smaller publications, but I've yet to be able to go into the local 7-11 and pick up a magazine with me in it. I know it will happen one day, but it just can't come soon enough!
