Mina Stefan – Model Citizen

Mina Stefan has appeared in some of the top ‘Mens’ magazines in the world. What’s unusual about Mina is that instead of taking all her clothes off she has adopted a non-nude policy, and seems to be all the more popular for it.

She runs her own successful website and over 16,000 people follow her on Twitter. The homemade Xmas video she made was a smash hit on the internet. Flush the Fashion caught up with Mina in between photoshoots…

What are you up to at the moment?
Sitting in the chair in my hotel room with Chola (my dog) on my lap making it really hard to type… lol

Did you always want to be a model?
Sort of, as a kid I always knew that being a “model” was like code for saying “professionally beautiful”, or that’s the way that media has kind of made it.

Mina StefanIs it sexier to leave something to the imagination?
Oh definitely! I always find a Maxim or FHM magazine much sexier then a Playboy because my imagination starts racing of what she might look like nude…

Will you ever reveal all?
I don’t want to say “NEVER” but I have no plans in the near, or far future to show all…I already think there’s still so much for me to explore with implied.

Your Xmas video got over 120,000 views, were you surprised it was so popular?
That’s crazy right?! I honestly had no idea it was going to sky rocket like that. I woke up the morning after I posted in and it went from 200 views to over 40,000 and I was like WTF happened?! LOL But Im happy that people liked it.

Do you have a shoot you are particularly proud of?
Honestly, nothing yet stands out to where I’m always looking for an opportunity to show it off, I’m an extremely hard critic on myself so when the time comes of something I’m super proud of, the world will be sure to hear it!

It looks easy, but is it hard work being a model?
It depends on the modeling really. But I’ll tell you one thing, there really is no glamour in modeling…its so weird as a model, you’re kind of on the bottom of the food chain (in regards to respect), at least that’s what I’ve found…

Do you update your blog yourself?
Oh yes!! I take great pride in the fact that I made my blog all by my self. I did all the branding (minus the watermark, that was courtesy of Passion Nights), all the posts…everything you see done there, was done by yours truly.

Are you good with technology and computers?
I’m as good as my Mac allows me to be LOL

Who is your favourite band?
I’m so behind on music its painful…your probably going to “*facepalm* when I tell you that I really am stuck in the 90’s when it comes to music…Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Disney LOL

Who is your ideal man?
IRON MAN!!! Or should I say, Tony Stark LOL

What is the best thing about your job?
The amazing fans. If it wasn’t for them, I probably would have let all the haters get to me a long time ago and quit. Their love and appreciation can really give you the extra boost you need on a bad day.

What do you have planned for the rest of the year?
A couple of vacations, lots of Photoshoots, and honestly, just getting through each day one at a time…

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
I’d like to be a Happy housewife with a few kidlets running around the house with a roast in the oven…very Stepford wives I know, but I’m a very strong believer that a successful life, for everyone, starts at home 🙂
