Awhile back I had a shoot with a girl named Michele Monique. She came in wearing a dress that was beyond stunning. “Hey where in the bloody hell did you get that dress?!” I asked. “I got it at Temptress Fashions you silly goat fucker!” she replied eloquently. We wrapped up the shoot and I immediately set out to find Temptress Fashions on facebook. Turns out they were about 9 miles down the road from me here in San Diego. I saw on their page they were having a contest and I promptly entered Micheles images in for the drawing. Holy shit, would you believe we actually won a $100.00 gift certificate? Michele promptly went down, got some more sexy outfits and came over for another shoot. While she was here she told me about the Face of Temptress fashion pageant. She needed a video intro, which we made and submitted it. Once again, she was accepted to the pageant, and to my astonishment, I got an invite to shoot the entire event!
The event was being held at Winstons Beach club. I showed up an hour early with my Nikon and Alienbees gear to get my lighting squared away. The band had already arrived and was getting a sound check.
Whoever did the decorating did a freakin fantastic job. The VIP tables had Temptress models of Christmas past adorning the tables.
It wasn’t long before some of the most beautiful girls in San Diego started showing up. Everyone was nice, and the place had a very warm and accepting atmosphere.
I don’t know all the of names of the models, but the ones I did know in attendance were: Melanie Monsters, Eva Garnet, Kiki Carnevale, Darrce Grace, and a whole bunch more whose names I haven’t learned yet. Hopefully you’ll see them soon here at Oni Studio!
The models competed in many categories, including a talent show that had one of the most inspiring dance routines i’ve seen in a bit.
In the end though, just like Highlander, their can be only one. The girls lined up in anticipation and even I was holding my breathe.
The winner was announced, Darrce Grace! Feel free to give her a congrats at the bottom of the page! I’d like to say a special thank you to Temptress Fashion for inviting me out. If you have a moment visit their store and see their awesome wares!
