Hi Lucy it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Hello everyone, first I would like to give a big thanks to SimplySxy for giving me this chance to tell my story.
I’m from China and currently live in Canada, travelling around Ontario province in my spare time. I am actually a student in the business field, so modeling is my super hobby in my spare time.
I learned visual art since I was 4 years old, learned to play the piano when I was 8 and passed the highest-level pianist certificate in China when I was 15.
These years I’m busy with study and work but discovered my interests and talent in fitness, yoga, fashion and modeling.
How did you get started into modeling and what do you love about it?
More than 3 years ago, I got in touch with some photographers on Instagram, that was the time I booked my first photoshoot. By the time my Instagram page expanded, I got more shooting scheduled with different photographers.
I love shooting so much because it gives me a chance to express who I really am. I can show the other side of me instead of how I am everyday in work and study.
What is the most challenging assignment or event you have done so far?
The most challenging part about my modeling is to get into the mood. It’s all about the cooperation between the photographer and me. Different photographers shoot in different styles, there is a particular style that each photographer is looking for
At the beginning of each shoot is the most challenging part because there usually will be a few “tester” shots. I need to figure out the pace and preferences of the photographer I’m shooting with. Once both of us gets into the mood, it becomes easier and more exciting.
What is the best compliment you have received?
I receive too many comments on Instagram so I can’t remember. The most impressive one is from my favorite photographer @kaybeephotography who says I’m the favorite angel to shoot, under one of his video postings of me.
Funniest or most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
The funniest thing was once, I was modeling for a yoga theme shoot in the summer, and we had to wake up at 4am to do makeup and get ready, just for catching the sunrise.
I felt like I didn’t even sleep the night before, but it was a successful shoot and I met so many amazing photographers.
Where do you love to shop from?
Stores I love go to are:
Victoria’s Secret & Pink for bouridor.
Nike & Adidas & Pink & Victoria’s Secret for sports wear.
Banana Republic & Club Monaco & Zara for business gear.
Garage & Hollister & Aritzia for causal.
And my favorite online shopping LULUS.COM (It’s just so awesome!!!)
Do you have a strict exercise regime?
Yes. I insist on doing flexibility, cardio and strength training. I try my best to go to gym every other day since I got a pretty busy school and work schedule.
Eating habits is crucial, before some of my photoshoots I usually only eat protein (egg white), veg and fruits at night.
This regime works well on me but I’m not sure how it goes with others.
How will you describe an ideal date?
Someone that is self-motivated, always trying to improve himself and trying hard to live a better life. With someone you fall in love with when you first meet.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Lucy. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy = Confidence + Your own style
