Sindy Pierce is a alternative model located in Sarasota, Florida. She has been modeling for five months. She is currently in college and a Sociology major. She likes going to concerts and trying new makeup styles.
How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?
It feels great to be recognized as an alternative model. It’s a niche you don’t see much of in mainstream media, so to be able to reach an audience outside of my norm is exciting.
Was modeling something you always wanted to do, or did it just kinda happen?
Modeling just kind of happened. A woman I used to work with used to do it and kept pushing me to give it a try, because she wanted to start an agency. The agency never panned out. But I kept modeling, because I enjoy it as a creative outlet. The outfits you’ll see me wearing are predominantly my own clothes, so it’s nice to be able to use pieces from my own closet.
What are the main challenges in modeling today?
I would say the main challenges of modeling today revolve around social media. Firstly, there are so many different platforms from Model Mayhem to Instagram that give people access to modeling. It has created huge competition to get booked or just get noticed in general. Secondly, a lot of what’s in demand right now are fitness models and video vixens, so I’m trying to change peoples minds about what they want to see.
Are there any modeling goals you feel you haven’t achieved yet?
I would love to be published in a magazine, that’s my most immediate goal right now. In the future, it would be awesome to help design a clothing/lingerie line or makeup line for other people who want to explore their darker side.
What do you think you look the sexiest in?
Leather, definitely leather. Leather jackets, tops, hats, corsets, shorts, pants, booties, bikinis, you name it and I’ll rock it.
When it comes to modeling, what it something we would be surprised to learn?
There’s a lot more that goes into modeling than showing up at a shoot and posting the resulting images to your socials. You really have to market yourself if you want to stand out against the crowd. Again, because there are so many models out there right now you have to be smart and work hard to get noticed. Often, you have to make the initial contact, because you can’t just wait for opportunities to come to you.
How would you describe your personal style?
I would say my look is kind of a blend between gothic and a dominatrix.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for a guy?
Fortunately for me, I haven’t had to do anything that crazy for a guy or girl. I have kind of a ‘mysterious stranger’ vibe that draws guys and girls in.
Picnic in the park or dinner at a restaurant?
I’d go with dinner at a restaurant. I’m so pale, I get sunburned so easily, so indoors is definitely preferable.
Lipstick or lip gloss?
Lipstick. I wear primarily dark colors like black, suede, and wine red. Lip gloss wouldn’t provide the same boldness of color.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
I was going to a banquet and decided to wear a backless white dress (meaning I couldn’t wear a bra with it). I had the dress weeks in advance and had styled my entire outfit around it. Well, a week or so before the banquet I impulsively decided to get my nipples pierced. At the banquet under the lighting you could see the nipple jewelry clear as day and I get several comments on them. I was told to stand in the back for a few group photos.
What’s something you were really stressed about, it turned out to be no big deal?
I moved from Florida to New York City for school when I was 18. I was super nervous, stressed about homesickness and literally not knowing anyone when I got there. They turned out to be some of the best years of my life.
What was one of the best days of your life?
The night I saw The Pretty Reckless in concert for the first time was a highlight for sure. Their singer Taylor Momsen is one of my idols and is a heavy influence on my style. Before the show started, I made friends with a random person in the crowd who turned out to know the band. After the show, he snagged me a vinyl signed by all the band members, because he thought I was funny.
How can everyone keep in contact with you on social media?
The best way to keep in contact with me on social media is on Instagram: @sindy_pierce .
