The Kings Aces Magazine:
First off thank you for taking time out to chat with us over at the kings aces.

Dionna:
Thank you for having me!

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in this career?

Dionna:
I recently left a full time job in the human services field. It was really fast paced and high stress as well. I realized that it is something I didn't want to do for the rest of my life. I feel like if I put 100% into modeling I can do so much. I love the fashion, meeting new people, and just having fun in this career path.

The Kings Aces Magazine:How did you get started in Modeling?

Dionna:
The first time I modeled was at my high school's prom fashion show. I received a lot of feedback about my walk and how I fit the mold of a model so I explored a little.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this field?

Dionna:
My goal as a model is to just stay busy every single month, every single week even. I want to build my brand and help other freelance models build theirs as well.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What do you hope to accomplish in modeling

Dionna:
I hope to accomplish modeling across the country. I want to be in California, Florida and more some time this year!

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Do you have any limitations? E.g.(Nudity, lingerie, business attire)Would you model any kind of clothing at all?

Dionna:
I take pride in the fact that I have built up my following without feeling the need to be nude. I don't mind lingerie modeling as long as it's done tastefully. Business attire is something I would definitely model as well as anything from vintage to modern.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What are modeling  measurement?

Dionna:
I'm 5'8", bust 34", waist 28.5, hips 36, dress size 6, and shoe size 8.5.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What Can a person tell from looking at a picture of you?

Dionna:
They can tell that I'm genuine and passionate. I try to show emotion in every single picture that is captured of me.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Who are some of your favorite models?

Dionna:
Some of my favorite models include Joan Smalls, the queen Tyra Banks, and myself of course lol.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Which fashion magazines, websites, blogs,  do you find yourself on the most?

Dionna:
My go to magazine right now is Essence magazine. I love to see women of my complexion excelling in the fashion and entertainment world. It gives me the motivation I need. I don't go on blogs but Instagram is a huge platform for inspiration and I use it daily.

 

The Kings Aces Magazine:
How would you describe your style?

Dionna:
My style is ever changing; I wear outfits thay go according to my mood. One day you can find me in a pencil skirt and a nice blouse and high heels, the next day I'll be in skinny jeans and a basic tee with chucks on.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What advice do you have for other aspiring models?

Dionna:
Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. Often times we get in our own heads and doubt ourselves and then miss out on opportunities because we fear we aren't good enough. You will never know what you are capable of until you push yourself.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
How do you prepare yourself  for a modeling shoot how do you get in your zone?

Dionna:
I have a playlist that I listen to on my way to shoots or castings. The list is full of songs that get me hyped up and make me feel good. I also make sure I'm properly hydrated and that i eat enough food. Once you get to a shoot or show sometimes you're working so much there are barely times for food breaks.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
How would you describe working with a photographer, Are you shy? what is your mind frame?

Dionna:
I am relax and open to directions when it comes to working with photographers. The model/photographer relationship during a shoot is so important. You both have to trust each other and vibe off of one another in order to produce some amazing content.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
So tell us How has modeling changed your life?

Dionna:
Modeling has made me so much more confident than I have ever been. It has also helped me gain some friends that I would have never met unless I put myself out there.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Do you do your own hair and make-up or do you have a stylist?

Dionna:
I wear my hair natural often so I usually style it myself. I do have a couple of go to make up artists that I use but I will do my own make up if needed.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
When everything is all said and done, what would you like your fans to say about you and what you brought to the table?

Dionna:
I just want my fans to see how genuine of a person I am and the positivity that I bring to such a tough industry.
