At the moment I first saw Allison in cycle 12 of America’s Next Top Model, I could not take my eyes away from her. She is so unique and attractive. Probably no one would think that nosebleeds are pretty, but Allison did. She is so fascinated by blood that he was jealous of Tyra Banks‘ nosebleeds. What else do you know about Allison? Allison is not just an American top model, she is also a talented artist, photographer, actress and internet celebrity. She had also developed her own perfume called “Honey Blood”, composed and performed in a music video for her song “Underwater”. It was my pleasure to have an opportunity to interview with Allison Harvard to find out more about her life, inspirations, and much more! Allison Harvard Interview:
Yin – LGS: How do you like modeling? Has it changed your life in any way?
Modeling allows you to play in someone else’s world for the day. I think that’s special. It’s always wonderful to be a part of someone’s creative vision too.
Yin – LGS: Please share a fun/interesting/memorable anecdote during a modeling session.
Honestly, I think the most fun you can have is when you’re working with friends. I have so many amazing memories from New York with my good friend Syrie. We would bounce ideas off of each other and devote entire days to building a set or scene for a photography project.
Yin – LGS: What projects are your working on now and what’s on the immediate horizon?
I live in Manila, Philippines for the time being and I am so happy and grateful for this opportunity. I have lots of exciting campaigns coming up and I am finishing up my second television show here for TV5 (Celebrity Dance Battle/as a judge). I would love to continue working in television as well as modeling. I cannot complain!
