Looking good in front of the camera just comes naturally to Mirella. This one-time child model is all grown up and has recently returned to the modeling industry. Can you think of a better way to drive an ex-boyfriend crazy?
How did you get involved with modeling?
I used to be a catalog model when I was a kid. I recently started modeling again, because I wanted to make extra money while I worked on my entrance to grad school. Also, I wanted to piss off my ex-boyfriend (laughing).
Where do you go to meet guys?
I meet them when I go out dancing with my girls, or when I’m buying groceries at Whole Foods.
What type of guys approach you?
All types, young, old, rich, poor, artsy, yuppies.
What do you look for in a man?
Intelligence and integrity are very important to me, but what draws me in initially are his eyes and arms.
Do you get approached by women?
Yes, and by couples too. I think it’s super flattering.
What’s your ethnicity?
Mexican, French and Peruvian-Japanese.
Where are you from?
Everywhere! Born in Westwood, California, early childhood in Lima, Peru, came back to the U.S. when I was seven, then lived in Mexico for about a year when I was 10.
What are your measurements?
On a good day, bust 34D, waist 25, hips 35.
What do you sleep in?
I wear nothing to bed but ChapStick!
Are you a righty or a lefty?
What’s your favorite food?
Ceviche..and a martini. Does that count?
Tell us one thing that people don’t know about you?
My mom had me because my dad wouldn’t stop bringing animals to the house. She thought that if she gave him a kid, he’d stop collecting a menagerie. Needless to say, I grew up with five cats, three dogs, and a bunny named Andrew, which was given to me by Lauren London (New New in ATL) when we were kids, and when the cats died off we got six chickens.
What’s your favorite drink?
Watermelon martini from Katsuya in Hollywood. Yummy!
