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!
Facebook: Kyla Grandy
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?
OTC: How tall are you?
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?
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?
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.
