Kitty Ribbons flower in hair Miss Pinup UK Ambassador

  • When you’re not being a Pinup Ambassador what do you do?

I am a professional Burlesque Performer, theatre trained. A mum of two beautiful children and wife to a wonderful husband.

  • What do you love most about being a Pinup Ambassador?

I love people watching wherever I go – especially when I’m travelling to and from gigs. I believe all woman are beautiful and when I see a real potential in a woman I make sure I tell them so, it gives me a real buzz to ask them to be apart of the competition.

  • Who’s your favourite pinup?

Ooh I have two – Missy Malone and Anna Fur laxis

  • What’s your favourite item of clothing?

My 1940’s style jeans which I designed and had made for me.

  • What’s your must-do beauty regime?

Sleep, a good facial scrub and a balm like night cream.

  • If you were stuck on a deserted island what 3 things would you want with you?

Music, my family and my best friends.

  • What were the last pair of shoes that you bought?

I love dancing and so with that and travelling I bought yet another pair of Rocketdogs pumps.

  • What must-haves will you pack to bring to the London Tattoo Convention?

I love fake eyelashes so I would have to make sure I’ve got plenty of my favourite pairs. Lots of dresses! I don’t like to stay in one outfit for too long !!!

  • If you were to enter, what would your special talent be?

As part of my job I teach lovely ladies in the art of burlesque – so my talent is to make every woman I teach feel confident and good about themselves.

  • What do you love most about yourself?

I love that I am small and petite, easy to get on with and professional in my job.

When you’re not being a Pinup Ambassador what do you do?

When I’m not spreading the Pinup love I am sticking rhinestones onto anything that’s not sparkly enough! You will also find me rehearsing with my showgirl troupe, performing solo as “Lady Lolly Rouge” or teaching burlesque to women from all walks of life. Other than that my main focus in life is looking after my two baby girls, they are adorable. :)

What do you love most about being a Pinup Ambassador?

I simply enjoy spreading the love! It’s great to give a person that little nudge we all need sometimes to believe in themselves. Pinup is not exclusive to a particular type of person, beauty can definitely come from within and is expressed, I believe, through the eyes. That amazing shot is when the models eyes sucker punch you and you can’t help but be pulled into the picture.

Who’s your favourite pinup?

For me it’s got to be the real life Jessica Rabbit, Catherine D’lish. Miss Exotic World in 92 and 94, She is a living legend who creates masterpieces both on stage and behind the camera. Catherine just oozes female sensuality and is an inspiration for any budding Pinup or burlesque performer alike.

What’s your favourite item of clothing?

That’s difficult because I have gathered quite a collection of sparkly things over the years. If I had to choose it would be my What Katie Did Maitresse Corset. This baby creates the most amazing curves and makes me feel instantly feminine.

What’s your must-do beauty regime?

Well, the biggest must-do is make sure you take your make up off fully every night to avoid getting clogged skin. I am a firm believer in moisturising my skin everyday and sometimes letting my face have the odd day off from make up so it can breathe a little. I have very fair skin so I use a moisturiser with a high SPF and steer well clear from the sun. In fact my family call me the vampire because I am always avoiding the sun and wear my shades even when it’s raining ;)

If you were stuck on a deserted island what 3 things would you want with you?

Sunglasses

Suncream

A set of hunting knives  (A girl needs to be prepared!)

What were the last pair of shoes that you bought?

I have so many pairs of shoes that I dream of one day having my own huge walk in dressing room (American style). The last pair I bought was a pair of red sparkly bow shoes from Office.

What must-haves will you pack to bring to the London Tattoo Convention.

Apart from the usual boring items I’ll take my camera so I can capture all the great fun we’ll be having with all the finalists behind the scenes. Oh and my red lippy!

If you were to enter, what would your special talent be?

Burlesque dancing of course. I really love the buzz from getting on stage and giving it all that I’ve got!

What do you love most about yourself?

What I love most is that I have flaws but I embrace them!
