My name is Riley Sawyer. I am 19 years old and I am a full time model/actress. I’ve been published with different magazines including Maxim Magazine which was very exciting. I am from Toronto Ontario as many know me by the top sunshine girl in the Toronto sun for months in a row last year. One of my favourite moments in my career so far would be getting the opportunity to model as a bikini model on CBC Dragons Den; for the company “ Cobra Mask”.
I am a former figure skater but was forced to quit due to several concussions. Although I was upset about quitting skating I really believe everything happens for a reason and that God had a plan for me because I’ve only been modelling and acting for a bit over a year and the success and opportunities I’ve been given are ones I never could’ve saw myself in if I went back a few years ago.
I am now signed at a studio so I get to work with artists in music videos and learn more about the music industry and how it works which is so awesome because music is such a big part of my life.
How will you describe your fashion style?
When it comes to fashion and my sense of style, I definitely have my own brand that tends to stand out as several people compliment me on my outfits everyday. I keep it classy but sexy at the same time, as I like to show my figure but not cleavage.
When it comes to fashion, I don’t think there is such thing as over dressing, as you’ll always find me in a pair of heels and in a skirt or a dress no matter where I may be going that day. I feel that fashion is a way to express themselves just like how artists express themselves through their paintings and art, I express myself through fashion.
How I dress definitely reflects a lot on my personality, “classy but sassy”.
Are there any accessories or items in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
I cannot live without my heels. They complete each outfit. I feel every woman needs a few pairs of heels to complete their wardrobe.
Do you believe in any superstition?
Yes I most definitely believe in superstition. When I used to figure skate, I wouldn’t be able to compete without my cross necklace on as I believed my performance wasn’t comparable without it.
What hobbies or interests are you into?
My biggest hobby and passion is my job; acting and modelling. It’s a form of art and to portray myself in different ways for shoots so different styles are captured. I feel so lucky that I get to express myself with my body instead of my voice for a career.
Which is your most memorable travel experience so far?
I had a really good time this year in Florida. As I went to see family and do some photo shoots, I also met new friends that made it an awesome time that I am so grateful and fortunate I got to experience it.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
Whatever I find funny now, I found funny in the moment of. I’m one who doesn’t really get embarrassed because I see us all as human beings and we all make mistakes so why feel embarrassed in situations when that’s life. I look at the positive side in every situation as I also have a sense of humour shines through in most situations.
What turns you off on a date?
I cannot stand when a man talks badly or puts down another female in front of me. MAJOR TURN OFF. Especially if he calls a past ex girlfriend of his ugly. That’s a major red flag as I learnt it’s a sign of insecurity and I like a confident man who doesn’t need to put others down in order to feel better about himself. I’d be calling that date off in a heart beat.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Riley. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I define sexy as an attitude more so than a shape. Looks don’t define sexy but how your presence makes others feel being around you is what it’s all about. If you’re real and true to yourself, not caring what anyone thinks, your pretty fricken sexy.
I feel being real is so sexy because it’s so rare these days and a real one always stands out to the right people. Being a genuine human that when you are around others they feel safe and comfortable enough to be themselves is what sexy is ultimately all about.
