Though Asian Beauty Michelle Montoya is a freelance model and a TV talent for a local TV station, we were quite surprised with how she handled her first nude pictorial. Brazen and confident, she deftly played up her exotic Filipina visage and color in working our lenses. “I just enjoyed myself during the shoot. I really didn’t want to overthink it and I just focused on working with the photographer. Since this shoot is for PLAYBOY, I kind of prepared myself and I knew what to expect,” she knowingly grinned.
Much like how we serendipitously found our location, Michelle’s modeling career started out through a most unlikely scenario. “I never really planned to be a model. I only sent in an application to the modeling agency that my ex-boyfriend was in because I wanted to investigate if he really was cheating on me,” she laughed. “Since I started modeling, he stopped going there. And I think we all know why.”
Aside from being a freelance model, this Asian Beauty is also a ground staff representative in a local airline. Soon, she plans to become a flight attendant. “People I know always urge me to apply as a flight attendant. Though, I have plans leading up to that, I don’t think that I’m ready for that yet.” Who knows? Maybe her next serendipitous encounter as a flight attendant might involve you.
