Kyla Shay

Kyla Shay is the girl you'd only find in your dreams. She's young, beautiful, and not to mention, talented! The thing I love most about her work is how seductive all of her shots are. I was scrolling down her Instagram yesterday, and when I zoned back in, I found myself on one knee (marry me please Kyla?). Here's the interview with this goddess!

OTC: What is your name? 

KS: I'm Kyla Grandy, but people know me just by Kyla or Kyla Shay.


OTC: How old are you? 

KS: 19


OTC: How tall are you? 

KS: 5'9


OTC: How did you get into modeling? 

KS: My dad looked into modeling for me and got me an interview with an agency. After I signed, I've pretty much been doing it ever since.


OTC: If you didn’t model, what would you be doing instead? 

KS: I'd be getting a degree in holistic nutrition to become a holistic nutritionist or Doctor. 


OTC: Where are you from originally? 

KS: I was born in the town of Lake Elsinore but I was raised in San Diego.


OTC: Do you travel a lot? 

KS: I spend a lot of time up and down Southern California, but I plan on making my way to Miami, New York and Japan in the very near future.


OTC: Where, that you’ve visited, is your favorite country? 

KS: I still love my country the best!


OTC: Where would you love to visit, and what would you do there? 

KS: I really want to go on a beautiful vacation in Bali. It's so beautiful there.


OTC: Describe your dream vacation 

KS: I love to relax and be pampered. It would be nice to just take a week where I could relax by a beach somewhere and enjoy nature.


OTC: What does “beauty” mean to you? 

KS: I strongly believe that people's beauty is portrayed by their personality.


OTC: Do you read all of your Instagram comments? 

KS: Yes! Sometimes I miss a few during the day but I definitely take my time to read them. 


OTC: Being called “beautiful” or “gorgeous” countless times in one day, does it still hurt reading one mean comment? 

KS: It bothers me more that people can be so mean to someone that they don't know, or make assumptions about someone that they might now know that much about, but I try not to take anything personally!


OTC: Which makeup product couldn’t you live without? 

KS: I love my Lashcraft length mascara from Sephora. I don't wear a full face of make up every day, but I always remember to put mascara on for any agenda.


OTC: Who is your favorite model and why?

KS: Sara Sampio. She's perfect!


OTC: Who is your favorite photographer and why? 

KS: Hmmm... I don't really have a favorite. Different photographers have different styles and I am always changing what I like. 


OTC: Which photographer would you like to shoot with most and why? 

KS: David Bellemere. I love the way he captures his models in a photo. 


OTC: What kind of music do you mostly listen to? 

KS: I like everything but I listen to country music a lot believe it or not. But I like house music too or anything you can dance to.


OTC: Have you ever been to a concert? 

KS: Yes.


OTC: Whose concert would you like to go to? 

KS: Hmmmm... Justin Bieber. 


OTC: What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? 

KS: Wash my face and drink some coffee. 


OTC: Describe your diet and workout routine.

KS: I do a lot of weight lifting and yoga, and I eat a lot actually! I love pasta, but I always make sure and get all the nutrition that I need for the day. No fast food though. Unless it's the cheesecake slice from Jack in the Box... That's the best!


OTC: Are you an early bird or a night owl? 

KS: I'm neither. I love to sleep. But I'm down with whatever. I think the mornings are the most beautiful time of the day. 


OTC:  Which way do you face in the shower? 

KS: Toward the shower head. 


OTC: Which question do you hate answering? 

KS: “Where are you going?"


OTC: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

KS: I see myself traveling, and loving life, and experiencing new things!


OTC: Professionally, what’s your goal? 

KS: I'd like to own my own clothing line eventually. I love the fashion industry and plan to stay in it.


OTC: What advice would you give your younger self? 

KS: Be more spontaneous and don't worry about what people think of you. 


OTC: What’s your go-to Snapchat filter? 

KS: The puppy dog. It's so cute!


OTC: What do you do when you’re Off The Clock? 

KS: Hangout with friends or go eat lunch or get my nails done. 


OTC: Would you rather model swimsuits or lingerie?

KS: Swimsuits... Because then I get to be at the beach. 


OTC: Victoria’s Secret or Calvin Klein? 

KS: Victoria's Secret. 


OTC: Do you have any tattoos? 

KS: No. I'm not crazy about them. 


OTC: Cats or dogs? Why? 

KS: Dogs. Because I can take a dog pretty much anywhere.


OTC: If you had to wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would you wear?

KS: Oh geez, a good pair of jeans, some cute classic adidas, a crop top and a leather jacket and a trucker hat.


OTC: Are you single? 

KS: No.


OTC: Do you have any cringe-worthy stories of a guy’s failed attempt to pick you up? 

KS: I had a guy ask me for a lock of my hair one time in front of an entire table of friends. It was really awkward. I was like, "wait, why?"


OTC: Where’s the best place for a guy to try and pick you up?

KS: Maybe a social event or somewhere where I'm just hanging out. 


OTC: Where’s the worst? 

KS: In traffic.
