Lilly knows that she’s a hottie. That’s why she’s not afraid to bare it all. Yes. This mixed Asian cutie is an exotic dancer and adult video star. I got the pleasure of doing a photoshoot with her after she won the bikini contest at Asian Model Palooza. The fans voted her to be our next cover model, and I have to agree with their choice.
Make sure to check out Lilly’s full spread in Amped Asia magazine.
What is your ethnicity?
I am Native American, Filipina, and Hispanic.
What was your first experience modeling?
A few years ago, I modeled some clothes with a friend. We did a “mock” photoshoot. I posted the pictures up and got a lot of responses from photographers interested in shooting me and asking if I was a model. I started doing photo shoots and going to car shows and events. The rest is history.
What made you decide to do adult work?
I challenged myself to do something more. Something out of my normal character. I was very, very shy before I started modeling. My parents are very conservative. I guess in a way adult work was the other extreme and it helped me overcome something that scared me in the past.
What’s the best and worst part of being a model?
The best part is meeting lots of people, making many new friends, models, fans, photographers.
Also winning contests and proving your talents. It’s not just about being pretty and taking pictures. It’s about poses (and dances) and expressions, flawless makeup, lighting, and outfits (or lack of).
The worst part…I guess would be the struggle to constantly keep yourself updated. You can’t really take a lot of time and expect to jump straight back in at the same pace without having to keep up with the styles, dances, memes, outfits, etc that come with all the different types of modeling and film work.
What’s your tips for any girl who wants to become a model?
Pick a role model, in fact, pick many. Don’t stick to one, that way you won’t end up disappointed if they turn out differently in the future than you expected.
Take and learn from the good, leave out the bad. There’s lots of things you can learn from many people. Study their poses, their makeup, their posing facial expressions. Take a class if you’d like. Not just modeling, but also a class for hair and makeup, nails, cosmetology, etc. Even making your own costumes helps!
Most importantly, don’t give up. There’s lots of people out there in this industry. Many great people who will become friends with you, and unfortunately some bad ones too who will try to put you down. Don’t listen to them.
If you could be anything else besides a model, what would it be?
Fashion designer, I would love to make my own clothing line.
What would you do with a million dollars?
Make my clothing line dream a possibility or open a store or business.
What is one thing you hope to accomplish before you die?
Get my name out there and open and create a successful business.
What are the top 3 things that makes a guy attractive?
His attitude. He should be confident, polite, honest, and loyal. You can have the most handsome guy in the world, but if his attitude is crap, then I’m not interested.
His looks. He doesn’t have to be Prince Charming or be Mr. Universe, although a nice body and face are a plus. What I look for is a nice smiling face, kind eyes, happy expression, with confidence.
His humor. If he can make me laugh whenever we’re around, we have a winner!
What are your biggest turn-offs?
Self-centered, conceited, rude jerks. You know who you are.
What’s your idea of a perfect first date?
A nice dinner, followed by a trip to the movies, or even staying in and watching a good movie. A nice walk somewhere, with a chance to relax somewhere calm and talk. So we can get to know each other. And if it was a perfect date, maybe a kiss.
What’s the worst pickup line you’ve ever heard?
Hey babe. Wanna sit on my lap and talk about the first thing that pops up?”
