Divya Interview

SINICAL MAGAZINE: How did you get started in modeling?

DIVYA: Through dance, actually.  I was a dancer my whole life.  Scouts would come in and pick off some of us in high school.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: There's a lot of people posting up bad pictures on their social pages and calling themselves models. What do you think makes a person a "legitimate" model?

DIVYA: Putting up bad pictures on your social networking page and calling yourself a model.  That is mad legit.  That's Hammer legit.  In fact, I'm gonna drop my agency and tell them that I'm solid on my own now that I have a facebook account.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: In the movie Zoolander, Ben Stiller's character has a variety of favorite poses, such as "Blue Steel", "Le Tigre" and "Ferrari". Do you have a favorite pose of your own?

DIVYA: Yes.  I call it "dump truck."


SINICAL MAGAZINE: What makes a fashion photo special?

DIVYA: Emotion.  My friends always tell me I’m annoying when I’m drunk, ‘cos I’m so emotional.  Well, jokes on them, ‘cos that emotion is paying for our drinks tonight!  Wait, I dunno how the jokes on them.  Why am I buying these jerks drinks?  Ugh, great, duped again.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: What's the craziest outfit you had to wear during a shoot?

DIVYA: I wore a Westward Bound spanking skirt once.  That is probably not in the realm of bizarre for most of your readers, but I was like "Wow, everyone that is on this set is currently getting a view of my butt."  I've worn tons of g-strings, been completely naked in public, and even had to drop my shorts for a shot while having my period, but yet, wearing a skirt missing the material for the bum was the oddest thing ever.  They were cool shots, though.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: Who is your favorite photographer?

DIVYA: Guy Bourdin and Richard Avedon.  They are the best.  Hands down.  Nobody would argue with me.  Even if they did, it is pointless, because I am never wrong.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: Have you ever had a bad experience with a photographer?

DIVYA: Of course, but I don't find it necessary to talk about those things.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: Have you ever had a bad experience working with another model?

DIVYA: Nope!  There's always a good camaraderie with models.  We all understand one another, even if we don't speak the same language.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: Besides modeling, what else is going on in your life?

DIVYA: I'm in law school.  I am way too chill to be here.

RYB Photography.


SINICAL MAGAZINE: What are your hobbies?

DIVYA: I like singing to people.  It's terrible, because I love to sing so much.  But I've been cursed with this horrible singing voice.  What to do?


SINICAL MAGAZINE: Do you have a website or online portfolio?

DIVYA: I have a twitter account.  I got it a while ago, but never used it.  I use it now, but only because I'm obsessed with the Lakers.!/DivyaDaiquiri

SINICAL MAGAZINE: Who do you think is going to be the president in 2012?

DIVYA: You know, I've started lurking on the Joe Rogan board and some guy was on there the other day raving about how awesome Ron Paul is.  I died laughing.  But who knows?  Watch it happen.  Actually, come to think of it, make Joe Rogan president!


SINICAL MAGAZINE: I would like to end this Q&A with a joke. Do you have a joke for us?

DIVYA: Ron Paul.  Oh no, I made a political joke!
