Scarlette Saintclair – I’m truly a southern girl at heart

Tell us briefly about who you are, and where you are from who is miss Saintclair ?

I’m truly a southern girl at heart. I love the little things sweet tea, the sun on my shoulders and of course a long Sunday drive in the car.

Tell us, what made you think like… “hmm, I want to be a model” and when and why did this interest of yours emerge? Have you been interested in photography from childhood?

I have always loved vintage clothing! The fashion of the 40’s and 50’s is so glamorous. I modeled as a teenager but the pinup modeling began 5 years ago when a friend talked me into entering a pinup contest. I won 2nd place and it started a whirlwind that has brought me here.

What best describes the alternative subcultures in your part of the world? Are those accepted ways of living where you’re from?

I’m very lucky that Florida has a large and growing rockabilly and classic car scene. But I still get a lot of strange looks going to the grocery.

How did you feel when you did your first ever fashion show or photo shoot?

My first pinup shoot was a lot of fun my friend Sandi De Silva and I got together and took some images. We had no idea that the response would be so great.

What’s your motto or life advice that you life by?

Enjoy every moment, smile and always drive with the top down!

Who was your role model as a child an how did that help in being a model?

My grandmother she was always very put together and such a lady.

Do you have any advice as to how to ensure good pictures every time?

Good pictures all the time well we all take a few bad ones here and here lol. My advice for new gals starting out is plan your shoot, make sure you and your photographer know what you each are looking for creatively. And pay close attention to details it’s the little things that pull it all together.

What are your plans for the future? Are you perhaps pursuing some special U.S. or European contracts?

I recently started holding workshops, offering coaching for other gals interested in the pinup style and culture. I really enjoy helping the other ladies.

What is a Pinup Girl to you? Describe to us the essence of Pinup Modelling.

A pinup girl is sexy, classy and very much a lady. She’s glamorous and encompasses a femininity of an era gone by.

Please tell us … ‘coz this we like to hear … What’s the most crazy thing that has happened to you on your Photo Shoots?

Well Loren Kahle and I did a flasher series shoot, me in lingerie and a vintage fur in St Augustine we had quite an audience as we walked the city taking photos. We stopped traffic at lions bridge. Lol so much fun
