Majestic @MelyssaGrace at #KuyaModelExpo 2014 for R1-Concepts

La Habra, CA, by W&HM - Our incredible cover model, Melyssa Grace, is always one of the top models in the industry.  You have seen countless photos of her in our past event coverage as well as the super cool cover feature pictorials.  At the Kuya Model Expo 2 2014, Melyssa showed her genius again with our and our peers' cameras.  From her graceful to playful poses, she could easily mesmerize you to no end.

During the tiny windows of opportunities to shoot with her at the busy Kuya Model Expo, her energetic self, confident posing, and totally interactive playfulness comes to full bloom, leaving us utterly drunk in her awesomeness.  To look good is one thing, to pose good is the next thing, and to create a personable experience is the ultimate thing!  Melyssa definitely won our heart and our high respect, many times again!!

Melyssa has been busy with her drifting activities.  She has attended many competitions and being featured in several occasions.  We totally love the combination of modeling and competitive driving, showing the world that beauty and brain do come together, very well!  We very much look forward to seeing her more in the future!

Marie Alvarez - A Genuine, Angelic and Caliente Model @ariannaamarieee


Marie Alvarez:

Marie Alvarez is a very genuine model.  She speaks her honest mind, she expresses her true feelings and she smiles from the bottom of her heart.  That's rare in this industry and we highly appreciate that. We think that there is nothing more sexier than a person being his/her self for real.  

Of course, let's not overshadow a bit her amazing look!  At 5'4", she can effortlessly create those super model 6'+ tall looks, with her slender physique and leggy limbs.  Marie always maintain a super classy yet uber sexy style throughout her modeling career.  This makes her a perfect model for a brand ambassador or high promotional roles.

She has worked tiredlessly in many events.  We went as far back as 2011 and we are sure that she may have started even earlier.  Her appearances in many web sites, magazines, as well as tons of coverage, only proves that she is high in demand by vendors and organizers, and more to the point, very + very popular among her fans!

Huge Pictorial Higlights of Kuya Model Expo 2 at R1 - Concepts

La Habra, CA, by Py - Big Abe's Kuya Model Expo 2 is the first major import model expo of the year and it lead with a strong showing of lots of models, packed crowd, awesome show cars, and cool vendors.  The venue was held at the R1-Concepts company at La Habra, CA, where cool brake rotors and pads are made.

Instead of being inside a hotel conference room, this time it was chosen to be at an open air venue at R1-Concepts company.  The weather could not be more perfect for an event.  At first, it was sunny, a little bit hot, but then in the afternoon, it turned with a cool overcast.  Both provided great photo lighting for us.  We could not be happier with this arrangement which the nature gave us!

R1-Concepts location is inside an industrial district with sprawling warehouses and manufacturing shops.  The place is in a cul de sac area, which is perfect for lining up cool and heavily modified and decorated cars.  The drive way is straight and about a truck width wide, which is ideal for setting up two rows of model lounge and vendor tables.  After you entered the gate, you would immediately greeted by the gorgeous models, and if you turned left,  you then see R1-Concepts busy models, Melyssa Grace, our cover model, and Amber Alvarez, our feature model!

It's so great to see both of them again.  Melyssa Grace has been busy with her charity work for the Haiyan Typhoon relief events, as well as her drifting activities.  She always looks so amazing and has created countless amazing photos with us!  She is indeed at the top of the industry!  Amber Alvarez just came back from Taiwan of her international tour for her highly famed go-go dancing talents!  We asked if she had any jet lag from the trip, and she said that she has a magical way of preventing it with a smile.  She looked super refreshing and happy as a lark!  Our cover model, Brie Williams, was also at the expo for Spocom.  Brie is a super rising star and many great things are happening or are going to happen to her.  We are very proud that our magazine is her first magazine cover feature!  We could not wait to see how far she can go and how high she can jump!  She is definitely very talented and deserves all the great recognition!

At the two model lounges separated by a catwalk stage, there were many models who we were super happy to see again or have never seen before or sometimes we were scratching our heads at...  It's totally awesome to see Marie Alvarez, Serena Su, Raquel Estralla, Ashley Clark to name a few...  They are the prime representatives of the golden time that we enjoy over the last couple of years.  Not only they look amazing, they are fun to chat with, and the photos are always so stunning!  Definitely check out the photos in the full article as well as our individual coverage of the models!

 As predicted in our 2014 Top 6 Trend and Forecasts article, new models are coming up like bamboo shoots in the spring time.  We applaud this trend and are glad to see the new talents showing up in the scene.  However, we do have some modeling advice for the newbies who are serious about this path of fame or nominal monetary rewards:
- make yourself presentable, and super package yourself, especially in this picture-first industry
- learn some basic modeling skills, like how to pose and how to give memorable smiles
- be likable and interactive, because nobody feels the love if you are perceived uninterested
We understand that some of you may feel shy about being in front of the public.  We say this; just treat everybody like a friend, and they will become a friend to you immediately.

Vendors and food stands joined the expo as well, making this expo a fun time for a sunny Saturday afternoon!

As the season opener, Kuya Model Expo 2 is a great success.  It provided a floor for models to warm up to the big games, and photographers to rekindle their admiration to their beloved personalities and search for the next top models, and media people to have contents to report to their faithful readers, especially after a long drought of show period.  Big Abe did a great job pulling together a great platform for models, fans, professionals and media to get together again in a huge way.  We say "Great Job!"  We definitely look forward to the next one!

The very Awesome @MsAshleyVee @JackyKvicky @NellyChavez at #SEMA2013

Las Vegas, NV - South Hall has always been a signature spot for the SEMA shows.  It is mainly occupied by the wheels and tires companies, who know what lifestyle marketing is and how to promote their brands leveraging gorgeous models and attractive talents.  At 2013 SEMA, Rohana and Velocity Wheels definitely brought their very cool models to the show and gathered a lot of foot traffic to their booths.

We have so many great adjectives that we love to adorn our Issue 13 print edition feature model, Ashley Harrell, including sunny, bright, happy, smart, sincere, friendly, talented, professional, fun to work with, plus many more in overall awesomeness!

We first met Ashley at the 2013 Spocom Super Show in Anaheim, CA.  We just took a few photos of her and talked to her a bit to know her better.  We immediately knew that she is our kind of gal who has great personality, cheerful attitude, and high professionalism.  Through working with her, we learned that Ashley is not only a great model, who has woned the Maxim "Beautify America" LV Editor's Choice (http://www.maxim.com/girls/beautify-america-las-vegas), she is also an amazing hairstylist.  No wonder she always looks like she just stepped out the salon with her gorgeous hair, and flawless make up and wonderful attitude!

We are very happy to see Ashley more and more in various events.  At each event, she always has that upbeat energy and friendly vibe around her.  People just love taking pictures of her.  We look forward to seeing her more in the future and see her modeling and hairstyling career flourish to no stop!!

Don't Miss More Stunning Models at SX A1 @ms_charisse


Anaheim, CA, by W&HM - Besides the glittering glamour Rockstar super models and amazing array of Monster Energy girls, there were many gems in the Pit Party area at the Monster Energy Supercross Anaheim I event.

(We are working in the reverse picture order above...)  When you walked into the party expo area, not too far from the entrance, you would be greeted by the three graces of  Randie Raige (red hair) and Michelle Cardoza (platinum blonde) and Stevie Austin (brunette) at the Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorney booth.  The strong presences of these three beauties set the tone for the wonderful venue here.  

Then we passed the NGK Sparkplugs booth, and met the elegant Jenna Poole in her red top and black skirt.  Jenna is a very tall model and can easily pass as a print commercial model in any of the major store commercials.  Combined with her industrious work attitude, Jenna is a great asset to NGK!  
On the other side of the vendor row, we ran into Amber Papst and Kelsea Rock for BTO Motocross spot.  Both of them had the warm smile and great personalities that matches the festive mood of the event!

And we pleasantly saw a very cool and at the same time very petite model, Charisse Cha, at the Shark Kage trailer ramp side.  Her mere presence at the place has made many people flocked to the booth and checked out what's in the store.  Now that's promotion that we say.  Our hats off to her!

There are a lot more photos of these amazing ladies!  Check them out in the full article here...

HxWxV, a Petite Meet with Huge Gathering @VxApes @Jessicakes33 @arrrrlz @officialsandrawong @miss_brittani_paige @Lillyevans__ @jennadrenalina

San Gabriel, CA - by Py - This is a very exciting meet.  You would not imagine the turn out and the effects of this event, but it has a huge impact across many aspects.  HxWxV stands for Heels, Wheels and Vapes, which is very fitting to the appearances of great models, great cars and bikes, right in the V-Apes shop in San Gabriel.  

The idea was conceived by the very awesome Jessica Weaver, our cover model.  Leveraging the V-Apes store in San Gabriel, that she is part of.  The idea is to have a "Kick Cancer Fundraiser" event, and having some of the top models in the industry to raise the awareness of the event, as well as providing a space for people to network and mingle.  And boy did we see heavy duty networking and mingling at the event.  Not only this is the first semi-major (definitely not minor) import model gathering at one spot after the start of the year, the draws of these models attracted the majority of local photographers that we meet regularly at various events.  This is almost like an unofficial network event.  People were busy capturing beautiful pictures of the models, especially with the awesome backdrop painted by the famed mural painting artist Kopyeson.  On their trigger resting time, people spent a lot of time catching up with each other, like a long lost friends network reunion.  People talked about shows last year, this year, and every year, talked about cars and bikes and clubs and many other things.  It's almost you can feel a strong industry vibe there.  We totally applaud to Jessica and V-Apes for providing this wonderful opportunity for all the gathering together and having a good time!  We definitely look forward to more in their future events!
Jessica Weaver is always so beautiful and awesome to take pictures of and catching up with.  Her interpersonal skills are warm and friendly and personable.  All these made her a perfect hostess of the event.

More more models at SX A2

Anaheim, CA, by W&HM - Besides the Monster Energy huge line up at the Pit Party platform, or the stellar array of Rockstar Energy girls, there are many other great models at the Monster Energy SuperCross Anaheim event.  some of them are nameless (for now) and some are recurring familiar faces.

We had a great time capturing Kelsey Sliwinski again, for Monster Energy.  Her sweet and warm appearance complement the sunny weather at that day perfectly.

Jana Poole looked awesome in both the Anaheim 1 and 2 events for NGK Spark plugs.  Her tall and slender figure totally captured the attending crowd's attention, and thus made a great promotion for the NGK booth.  There are more in this article too!!

2014 Supercross Anaheim AMSOil Girls
Anaheim, CA, by W&HM - At the Monster Energy Supecross Anaheim, we met the AMS Oil girls again, as lead by Helen Fancik.  This time, it's a retro theme with the 70's biker look on the girls.  Helen Fancik did a great job in cutting up the AMS Oil T-shirts and make the fringes just as authentic as the fringes that you find in the jacket worn by Dennis Hopper in the movie "Easy Rider".

2013 #SEMA #Hankookusa @EricaNagashima @JessHarbour @S80May and @KatelynnAnsari

Las Vegas, NV, by W&HM - If you have followed our coverage of previous Hankook models in various events, then you know that it needs no introduction that Hankook has the best models and costumes in the industry.  To work as a Hankook model is definitely a resume item for models, on top of being in the SEMA show!

Erica Nagashima was leading the pack in our coverage and always gives us amazing photos whenever we see her.  Her fun and gentle personality would put anyone at ease and wanted to start a conversation with her, like we did, under her irresistible friendliness spell.
