us a bit about yourself: Iím Kimberly Diane, 22, an
Aries, and born & raised just south of St. Louis,
Missouri. Iím a published model and I have been blessed
with the chance to be a chameleon in the industry. I am
a huge sports fan, I love going to concerts, and I love
fishing, travelling, or taking photos. I consider myself
the girl-next-door with a sense of humor. Iím extremely
laid back & just like to enjoy life. :)
made you get into modeling?
To be completely honest, I gave modeling a shot b/c I
wanted to step out of my comfort zone & build self
confidence. I was so shy I couldnít even go into a gas
station to buy gum! Yes, seriously. It was also because
I wanted to show up those that bullied me or turned me
down growing up.
happy to report that I can now buy my own gum & yes,
they are eating their words ;)
do you enjoy about modeling? Modeling lets me
express myself & it did eventually build my confidence.
It has also allowed me to meet a lot of great people
that I wouldnít have otherwise.
part of modeling?
In my opinion there are three things that make it
bad. 1) Seeing other models who havenít worked as hard
or as long getting better opportunities 2) Seeing other
models/photographers/designers working together all the
time. Unfortunately it is an industry that does play
favorites. Sometimes, you just want to say ďHey! Look at
me! Iíd be a great fit!!Ē ---ĖNow after I said that, let
me just say that Yes, I am COMPLETELY happy for all of
those people, but Iím sure they know how I feel at
times, it can suck being on the sideline.
3) People judging you. Youíd be amazed how many times I
hear ďOh, I was scared to approach you/talk to you
because most models are stuck up!Ē Once they see how
laid back I am, they are shocked!
you have any tattoos? If so where and what of?
Not yet. These days itís hard to find a girl without
a tattoo & I feel it makes me more valuable as a model.
But once I ďretireĒ I will be getting a few. So far I
have planned: a blue morpho butterfly, a little St.
Louis arch & city line, and when my parents pass away
Iím getting their handwriting from a b-day or Christmas
card (saw that idea on Pinterest actually & I love it).
What's your best asset?
Physically- itís tie between my eyes & my butt.
Otherwise I would say my willingness to help others and
determination to achieve my goals.
Physically- either the scar on my knee or that Iím 3
inches shorter than what Iíd like to be (Iíd like to be
5í9Ē-5í10Ē). My time management skills arenít the best
and sometimes being willing to help others can have its
flaws. Unfortunately people tend to take advantage of
are three technological things you cannot live without?
Cell phone, music, & a camera.
do you relax?
Getting to sleep in on the weekends is when I get to
relax. Iím hardly ever by myself to truly get to relax.
three things that annoy you?
1) Drivers. More specifically: people that donít use
the entire turn lane to slow down & instead slow down on
the main road, people that leave their blinkers on, etc.
2) Dramatic Girl/Guy relationship woes: People that go
from relationship to relationship, those that are
instantly pronouncing theyíre in ďloveĒ not even a month
into it, or those that always moan about how theyíll
always be alone for forever.
3) People that talk when Iím trying to watch something,
read, or listen to a song.
three things that make you happy?
1) Helping others. I love to spend time teaching
other models how to pose, or just lending clothes for a
shoot. I also like to support a few charities & donate
money or time when I can.
2) Music. I listen to music from 8-6 every weekday & at
night when Iím with people or in my car. I LOVE going to
concerts & I get tickled pink when a band or band member
follows me on Twitter, haha. 3) The people in my life.
Iíd be here all day if I had to list the people &
reasons why they make me happy. Itís good to know who I
can trust and who I know will always support me.
is your favourite video game?
I havenít played a video game in a while (game
console is in the freezing cold basement + Iím barely
home). BUT Iíd have to say I love Soul Calibur (Taki &
Xianghua are my girls!). I did attempt COD and I love
itÖ just got frustrated since I was a noob & didnít get
to play with other noobs. I diedÖ a lot... haha.
us a couple of your hobbies!
I love traveling!!! Iíve been to 30 US states,
Canada and Australia thus far. I hope to someday soon
take my mom on her dream vacation to Ireland. I am a
concert nutÖ so far this year I have attended 16
concerts and there are more to come! I also love going
to baseball & hockey games and playing soccer/football.
you could go back in time and visit yourself at age 10,
what would you say? I would tell myself that
everything will be okay. Youíll get your heart broken,
trust the wrong people, & fail at a few things. But
never ever give up & there are plenty of people who love
you now & will love you later. Keep your head up &
continue to follow your dreams. Iíd also tell her to
learn about stocks and invest in Apple & Disney pronto!
the other hand, if you could go into the future and
visit yourself 80, what would you ask? Iíd ask my
older self if sheís truly happy & has lived life how she
wanted. Iíd then ask her is there is anything that I
should watch out for or change.
Married, relationship or Single? I am happily spoken
do you look for in a guy? I look for someone that
can take care of themselves. Someone that is responsible
and goes for what he wants. A guy that my family will
like (especially my brother & mom their approval is
needed) and that I can bring around my friends (because
their approval is also needed). I like it when they do
the little things & show that even though they may not
like what Iím interested in, they donít mind
participating since it makes me happy (Iíd do the same
for them). A guy thatíll take a girl on dates (you can
honestly tell if a guy is interested in you or just sex
this way). If all he does is invites you over to his
houseÖ yeah, better go find someone that will actually
take you in public to ďhave a good timeĒ. :)
is your favorite movie? Itís a tie between Remember
the Titans and the 1940ís version of Pride & Prejudice.
Favourite Music? I am a music nut so my favorite is
always changing. I can listen to anything from A7X,
Thousand Foot Crutch, Greek Fire to Colbie Caillat, Josh
Turner, or Sinatra.
Favourite Food? I love sushi & anything spicy.
Favourite Colour? Sky Blue
Favourite TV Show? Big Bang Theory, Vampire Diaries,
Pretty Little Liars, & How I Met Your Mother.
Favourite Animal? White tiger or a Slow Loris.
YouTube a Slow Loris, they have freakishly big eyes but
motto for life? All dreams can come true if we have
the courage to pursue them. Ė Walt Disney
you have a fan site like twitter, myspace or facebook?
does the future hold for you? No one ever knows. But
I hope it leads me down a path of happiness and success!
words or less for your fans? Thank you for the
friendship, encouragement and continued support :)
Lastly, any scoops for our readers?
Letís seeÖ Two calendars that Iím in are about to be
released Ė The National Patriot Girls & Big St. Charles
Motorsports. There is a desktop calendar with me also
about to be released. My Luichiny Shoes ad campaign
photos will be released this month!!! (super excited
about that one). Will be working with Kim Killion in
December (watch for me to be on the cover of the next
romance novel you pick up!), Iíll be a ring girl at the
Titan Tournament of Champions in Jan, & hopefully
walking in Kansas City Fashion Week again in Feb. Thatís
all thatís planned as of now. :)
