World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Please tell us about yourself. Hi my name is Madeline Woods I was originally from a small town called Arvada, it is located in the state of Colorado. I visited Hawaii a couple times at a young age and fell in love with the tropics/ocean. So as soon as I saw the opportunity to come to Florida I took it! I am a nature lover who loves to hike, kayak, go for walks, and watch the sunset/ sunrise. I am a natural born artist, so I love photography, modeling, acting, singing, painting, I even got my cosmetology license and I am currently also a hairstylist in sunny Fort Myers, Florida. I am very adventurous and spontaneous, I like to do new activities and visit new places. next on my bucket list is axe throwing!
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Please tell us about your modeling experience.
My modeling experience is as follows. I have walked in NYFW for Art.infinitum. I have been in a couple marketing campaigns on social media for a brand called “spot.fitness”. I also have been in a commercial for “strechiflex gloves”. I’ve been featured by two publications now one being 6x glamour magazine and the other being Vigour magazine. I was listed among 3 other talented models as a top model on a billboard in times square. And I recently just competed in Maxim magazines cover girl contest and I took home 4th place in my group.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Bikini modeling is often done very early in the morning to catch that perfect lighting, are you a morning person and if not what is your strategy for 6am shoots where you have to already have your hair and makeup done?
I am not naturally a morning person but I very well can be for the tight situation. And i love morning beach shoots. The lighting is perfect and usually so is the weather. So I set my alarm for plenty of time to wake up have my coffee, do my exercise routine, then my skin and hair routines. I take my shower and brush and whiten my teeth. I also try not to have dark drinks on photo shoot days because it stains your teeth. World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Tell us about your first big break into modeling, what was the first modeling job you did and how were you discovered?
I would say my first big break was when Bryan Lambert asked me to come to a model meet up, with potential for scouting. I decided to go and I met Dedra Curtis and Kristy Shannon there. They said they loved my look and wanted me to join them for NYFW “22. Little did I know not only would I walk in that show but they would pick me as one of the top models. I still get chills when I think about it. They are continuing to work with me and I can’t wait to see where things go from here. Dedra’s production company is currently working on a movie and a lot of other things so I’m just grateful to be apart of the family.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: For the image to come out perfect you have to really connect with the photographer to get the pose captured just right with the lighting and angle and mood of the shoot. How do you typically connect with a photographer you just met on set?
I typically connect with a new photographer on set first by introducing myself, then I like to ask questions simple ones in the beginning like how they are doing, what got them into photography, then I start asking questions like what styles do they like best of shoots, what are some advantages they have found to certain methods over other methods etc. I find the more I pick their brains, the more I learn and the more successful my shoots come out. As I get to know them they feel more comfortable telling me how to move which angles look best etc. and i feel more comfortable trying new poses and confident. As I connect with the photographers I also look to learn from them. And not only learn from them but collaborate with them. During this bikini shoot, I asked to take a portrait in-between some beach grass, it came out fabulous!
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: There are so many iconic bikini poses that create this image captured in time that stand out and are widely known even by people not connected to the modeling world, what is your favorite iconic bikini pose and why?
I love when the camera man steps back a few paces, crouches down real low, aims up, and i then elongate my legs with one leg up on one toe and my arms up over my head softly. I love the length this kind of pose gives you. Especially since I am very leggy. I also really like water shots where you flip your hair, and the photographer can catch the angle of your hair all flipping over in the sunset. I also like to do anything anyone hasn't done yet, like I said I am spontaneous. So sometimes I find it helpful to just move around a bit slowly. In all kinds of different directions. Sometimes they come out silly, but sometimes mesmerizing. I have a background in dance, so I think this helps with that.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Do you have agency or do you freelance?
I have an agency and I would recommend them to the world. They are called QBelitemodelandtalent and they handle everything I could dream of. Beyond just finding me work, they have taken me on trips, given me swag bags, prizes, wardrobes, you name it. I feel like having an agency just brings so much more work. It also brings more fun events, and a sense of community. My agency found me and added me to the hive and I would never freelance at this point. I have grown too close to my agency family. And I say family for a reason. I love getting to watch our agency grow and all these new girls and guys coming in, it's like " yay new friends! "
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Which designers did you have a chance to model for?
I have walked currently for one designer in a runway show. The brand is called Art.infinitum. I walked for Art.Infinitum in New York Fashion Week 2022. It was one of the best experiences of my life. That has been my biggest modeling accomplishment yet. But I have also done some modeling for some online brands. One brand I modeled a shirt for was called Luminspot. I also modeled a necklace for a brand called Lavenne
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Have you modeled in any fashion shows?
I walked in New York Fashion Week in February of 2022. I am so grateful to the designer and my agency for getting me into that show. I am extremely grateful for the experience. I learned a lot about runways and fashion in general. When I was on the runway everything felt right. Like I was doing what I loved most. And I am definitely ready for more!
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Certain colors look good on certain people based on a variety of factors, what colors look best on you and which one is your favorite to model in?
I am a cool toned person. So being a cool toned person means I look good in cool reds, blues, purples, greens. But warm colors wash me out. If I try to expand my wardrobe into normally warmer colors I just tend to go for the more muted cool versions of the warm colors. But one of the tricks you can also do is wear mainly your tone but add a splash of say a warmer tone for just a pop of dimension in your outfit!
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: When you are considering taking a modeling job what factors come into play. Do you have a list of items that are deal breakers, or a list of items that seal the deal for you? Tell us about your ideal modeling job and what that looks like.
I do definitely have a list of deal breakers. My faith is very strong so anything that goes against that is a no go for me. I take into consideration what y family will think also, and what it will do to my image. My ideal gig would be something like a runway deal with Prada or a spread in Vogue I’m hoping with these new opportunities they will just keep opening more doors and I hope that I will be able travel the world with my modeling. And work for all the major brands. Eventually I want to be able to wake up in Paris, and go to sleep in New York all supported by modeling and acting and singing. That's my true dream.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: What would you consider your biggest achievement as a model so far?
I would consider being called top model in New York Times Square was my biggest moment so far. I remember standing there with about 30 other girls waiting to see who was gonna be chosen. And I was talking myself down to where I would be happy for anyone who got it. But when I saw myself up there…. My arm hairs still stand on end just thinking about it. I almost cried. Definitely got teary eyed. The fact that they saw my picture and believed I deserved to win something means the world to me. Its been months and I still thank god all the time for that one.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Do you have any bikini models that you look up to? Please tell us why you are inspired by that particular model.
I look up to Gigi Hadid a lot. She gets deals with the kind of brands that I would like to work with someday. She is also a mamma and I admire her for that. She get's to travel all the time. From what I can tell she takes her job very seriously and I admire that as well. Also she has a clean reputation, I appreciate that a lot. It can be easy to sell out, but I don't believe she has. Also she has more of a natural look.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Describe how you prepare for an upcoming shoot. Tell us about your routine, do you have any superstitious rituals, a certain number of hours of sleep, or specific music you hype yourself up to, or beauty routine you swear by?
I always get at least 7 hours of sleep before a shoot. I also like to use my face masks, I have nose strips, eye patches, and all over face masks. Also I drink a lot of water and I make sure to use my teeth whitener. I also like to exercise before my shoots. I don't exercise too hard though. Just enough to feel nice and toned during the shoot. I also strech, don't wanna pull a hammy!
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: What is the best piece of modeling advice you have received in your career that you would like to share with aspiring models?
As I was leaving New York this year, one of the photographers stopped me and he said “ never stop improving, never stop learning, never think you’ve reached the top… because you can always go higher”. That really stuck with me. Because I realized it's true. You only can have a top or a limit when you create that for yourself. And I don't want to do that. I want the sky to be the limit. I also want to keep learning because I believe even the smartest people can learn more.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Every model has a pose or part of their body that they like to focus on because it is the money shot of them. What is your favorite feature or pose for you personally?
Personally I am very grateful for my jaw line. It helps me be able to move pretty much however I want with my face and most angels come out really nice. When I look to either side or the front it is very symmetrical as well. It's hard though to choose a favorite. I feel very blessed to look the way I look. I like most of my face. And to be honest I don't think there's really any part of myself I don't like. anymore. When I was younger that was different. I wish I could help every young woman feel that way. You were made perfect. World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Every person can make an impact on the world, what is one thing you are doing to make the world a brighter place?
I believe strongly in doing good deeds, and spreading kindness everywhere. Even if its a kind word on social media, a couple dollars for the homeless, pulling over if you see someone with their hazards on. I take it moment by moment. I also donate a certain portion of all my income to different charities. I have also been known to donate my time in situations like group teen homes. Giving and kindness in my opinion should be all the time. just a matter of finding how to give back each day.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: For every passion/need there is a nonprofit or charity that promotes or helps fill this need. What is your favorite nonprofit or charity and why is it your favorite?
I like non profits and charities like st. jude. I also like charities and non profit organizations that are currently trying to help with our current status of the world for animals, the environment, women, and minorities and human rights in general are huge to me. There is a lot going on in the world currently. So I take my time to pay attention to as many causes as I can. If I had to choose primary ones though it would probably be " coalition to abolish slavery and trafficking (CAST), also World Wildlife foundation, also Human Rights Foundation, and last but not least Greenpeace is amazing.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Who is your dream designer to model for or your dream modeling job? What steps are you currently taking to make this dream a reality?
I dream of being an international model someday. Also being in Vogue and Bazaar and Victoria’s secret. I am currently trying to improve my modeling skills and my looks so that I can book bigger gigs and continue to move forward. Also I am trying to get into as many shoots as I can. The more shoots I have the more I can submit to publishers, and hopefully someone will pick up my look. I also am currently working on my physique, I hope to be transformed soon.
World Class Bikini Models Magazine: Where can we learn more about your work? Tell us your websites and social media handles and where someone can go to hire you for modeling jobs?
My Instagram handle is where I post all of my main work. The handle is @madelinee_woodz. I do not currently have a personal website. You can also though find my work on Model Mayhem. I find a ton of great photographers on there. I also have Facebook, but that is more personal for friends, family, and fans to connect with my personal life. World Class Bikini Models Magazine would like to say thank you for this wonderful interview. Interview by Cassandra Wallace Editor in Chief of World Class Bikini Models Magazine.
