Hi 🙂 I’m Lily and I’m a 19 year old student and model. My name Amancay translates to Lily, so it has sort of become my unofficial name. I’m originally from Connecticut but I moved to NYC once I turned 18 to pursue my dreams of working in the fashion industry. I currently attend Parsons School of Design for a major in Fashion Design.
What inspires your fashion style?
I think I dress pretty casual and stick to the things that make me feel comfortable and cool. I wear lots of denim; in fact, I wear a jean jacket almost everyday with my sneakers or combat boots. I don’t really know if there’s an inspiration for my style, probably just the model off-duty look.
Are there any accessories you can’t live without?
I cannot live without my unicorn jewelry. I wear the same unicorn earrings and necklace everyday. I also always have a baby figurine in either my bag or jacket. I have a good collection of small baby figures, I just buy them when I come across them. They’re good luck!
Which is your most memorable photoshoot or modeling experience?
The one that stands out to me happened in 2017 during the winter. I was contacted by this amazing photographer (@johnkelseyphoto). He travels around and at the time he was living in a small sailboat. He invited me to shoot at a studio but I couldn’t make the time for that. Instead, I agreed to shoot outside on his boat with the Manhattan skyline in the background… wearing only lingerie! It was so cold (there was snow on the ground to put it into perspective) that afterwards I had cramps from my body tensing up due to the cold, but it was so worth it!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do or experience but have yet to find the time for it?
I definitely want to travel more.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation that is funny now when looking back?
I embarrass myself a lot! And every time I look back on things I still cringe.
If you could collaborate or meet anyone past or present, who will it be?
Honestly, I would meet Kanye West. Like, have him over for dinner. He just seems like he has an opinion on everything and would be very entertaining to be around.
What do you not get about guys?
I don’t understand why most men don’t experiment with fashion more. It seems like a lot of them are afraid of coming off too “feminine”, but I personally think it’s attractive when a man doesn’t care and can be different.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Lily. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is when you put on some makeup, do your hair, wear nice lingerie and heels, and make people realize that women are the most beautiful creatures in the world.
