I Got The Nudes Like Jagger

Hiya Poutlings

Mick Jagger‘s oldest daughter, Elizabeth Jagger stripped down naked for some fishy photos, she also got naked with her mum. (Awkward?) They’ve been shot by Fishlove to help the world know that if we don’t stop overfishing, scientists predict that by the middle of the century all marine life will be extinct. Yikes. Save the sushi!

that awkward moment when you get naked with your mum and play with dead fish

Meanwhile, it’s easy to forget when it comes in a can or a roll or a burger….. or even when you are scuba diving, but tunas are big. The scary part is not that Lizzy Jagger is completely nude, riding this poor tuna…. It’s that over 4 MILLION TONS of tuna are taken out of the ocean every year… and that is the point of this campaign, obviously.

Fishlove says we’ve got to can our tuna addiction.

Alternative Model(s)

Good Day Pretty Pouters 😉

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Alternative modelling is a branch of the modelling industry that features models who do not conform to the mainstream ideals of beauty. Alternative models are often niche-specific, with a personal style that represents subcultures like goth, burlesque, latex and fetishism. An alternative model may for example be tattooed, pierced, or have distinctively subcultural hair (shaved, dyed a distinctively unnatural colour, mohawk, or in dreadlocks)

Alternative models can be clothed or unclothed.

Alternative modelling was given substantial mainstream media coverage in the last decade, partly through the creation and popularisation of community-based alternative modelling sites, like Godsgirls, SuicideGirls and BlueBlood.

Alternative model: M!ss Ameerah

Personally I think she makes a pretty commercial model too (Second image)

Alternative modelling community sites promoted their models for their personality as well as for their look and portfolio.

So as you can see according to google-Wikipedia an “Alternative model” is a female/male with tattoo’s, piercing, and hair that does not get accepted in the mainstream “Community” According to my ability to read I can’t recall it stating ANYWHERE that “Alternative modelling” consists of “Themed shoots” or “Anything/everything the norm would NOT do”.

As a model in the Commercial industry as well as an “ex Alternative model” (If I may) I would like to share my in’s and out’s as well as pretty much just my 2cents on Modelling as well as Alternative modelling.

But let me start of by introducing myself.

I am Lady_HellFire, Better knows as Hesmarie or Hesmarie Hellfire I am a model and have been in the industry for +-13 years where I have done ramp, beauty pageants, photographic modelling as well as teach a few classes at “model finishing school” when I was younger. I will be posting for pout Perfection about the modelling industry as well as the safety and dangers the industry holds. If you do not agree with me on things, please be as kind as to share your opinion, I really do enjoy having a good old debate from time to time 😛

So my first blog will be about “Alternative Modelling” as you can see.

The majority of people’s concept of an “Alternative” model is the fact that he/she has piercings or tattoo’s or even some funky hair-style, which according to Wikipedia is correct.

But in my personal opinion modelling and acting goes hand-in-hand so why the different genre’s of modelling as a model you should be able to be versatile, should be able to portray what is expected of you in front of the lens, so I think if you are a Great model you should be able to slap on some fake tats a clip on nose ring and some wacky hair do and be able to pull off the “Alternative” style of modelling just as if you are classified as an “Alternative” model if you are a good model you should be able to pull of a commercial look when required.

Your thoughts on the image above, commercial or alternative?

I honestly think the fact that every second girl who has a friend with an expensive camera and some nice unedited pictures with “Artistic” angles who classifies herself as a model due to having a facebook page with “fans” should have a look into the industry, because it’s NOT that easy and it’s not all that glamorous either, you are not a model if not qualified so being an “Alternative” model does not make you one either, its become a gate way for attention. Again in my opinion 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts and input on the subject?

Much love.

Runaway Brides in Sophiatown

Good morning pouters, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

This past Saturday while most people were either marching at SlutWalk or watching more rugby I was running after a bunch of runaway brides at a demolition site in Sophiatown. The runaway brides were none other than the gorgeous Dynamite Girls (part of Dynamite Promotions) and they were on a very dusty set of an actual soon be demolished site. There were 17 gorgeous Dynamite Girls modelling dresses from Kobus Dippenaar Couture and Wedding Connexion.

I was on set from 9 am until 3pm and it was a busy but fun day – I didn’t have to completely paint 17 faces, luckily the girls had done their makeup and I was there purely to touch them all up and make them perfect and camera-ready before they went and were shot by the 4 photographers on site in different parts of the broken buildings.

Here are a few behind the scenes pictures of some beautiful brides.

A big thank you to Dynamite Promotions and the Dynamite Girls for letting me a part of your team and an extremely big thank you has to go to David Colyn of Dragonfly Photography www.dragonflyphoto.co.za for getting me involved in this project.

At the end of the day I was dirty, all makeup’ed out and utterly exhausted from running around all day but it was worth every second.
