Lucy Andrews is Out and Fierce


Published:

Lucy Andrews likes a challenge. “I definitely want a career but I want something that’s different. I get bored easily, that’s why I love modeling, because no job is ever the same,” says the 19-year-old out model. Andrews admires mainstream models like Kate Moss, but is not willing to give up everything for that kind of success.

“I’m not your average model,” Andrews says. “I may have the height but I don’t have the blond hair. Plus, I love my food far too much, so I would never starve myself for apparent beauty.” But her attitude hasn’t seemed to hinder her career at all. She’s already modeled for big names like Prada and Dolce & Gabbanna and she’s been offered contracts with some of the major agencies.

Andrews dyed her hair blond on her 17th birthday and has been having more fun ever since. “It started off as a joke. At first I looked like a skunk because it was just down one side, but it’s gradually improved and I love how it looks now. Being blond is definitely for me.” Her unique look makes her a sought-after commodity for edgy fashion designers and advertisers around the world. “I’m not afraid to be myself," she proclaims. “I am not the general stereotype. I love being unique—why would you want to look like everyone else?”

Andrews doesn’t feel her sexuality has ever been a factor in the workplace at all. “Lucky for me, it has never been an issue. I’ve seen people go through hell because of it, which shouldn’t happen.” She’s out at work and with her family and friends, and she regularly bears all on her confessional MySpace page, which includes plenty of great party shots. She just got out of a long-term relationship so she’s currently single and “accepting offers.” Now’s your chance ladies.
