Model feature : Kitty Devereux


An alternative model with many strings to her bow, not just a model but also specialised in burlesque, fire breathing & pole dancing.


How did you start modelling? Was it something that you always wanted to do, or did it just 'happen'?

It is something that I never thought I would be able to do. Growing up I always felt like the ugly duckling, glasses, frizzy hair metal chick. I was never unpopular and was always surrounded by friends. But I never in a million years thought I could have been doing this if you asked me 10 years ago! I got offered a couple of opportunities by friends to help with their clothing labels, and bands etc. Then it sort of went of from there. I never really looked for work at the beginning it sort of found me. I enjoyed it so much I thought I would give it a proper go!


What drew you towards alternative modeling?

I am fully aware that I am too short for runway, my tattoos limit me and a lot of people won't even let you submit if you have tattoos and piercings. That's fine with me, I am who I am and if they don't want my body art then they can't have me either. We come as a package and it's part of who I am. It isn't just an image it is a lifestyle to me. Alt modelling allows people to defy the generically beautiful image for models. It means that if it is a Saturday night I can have a Chinese takeaway without feeling like the world has ended. Most of all I can be myself.


Do you have any fellow models or heroines who have inspired you?

My girl crush is Jessica Nigri! I absolutely love her she is a cosplayer and a gamer. I also look up to Lusy Logan, RYO model and makeup artist, Doll face, Missy, Lucy Vixen and Amie

Conradine there are so many!


What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?

I would love to do a lot more cosplay, fetish and a huge fire shoot would be amazing. I have a few cool concepts up my sleeve but it is just a case of finding the right team to make it happen the way I want it to. The quirkier the better!


What has been your biggest modelling achievement so far?

My biggest modelling achievement so far would have to be my fanbase on my facebook page. They are all so supportive and loyal. They are very active and always stop by to ask what I am up to and give me feedback.


Are there any companies or designers that you'd like to work with?

There are so many including Black Milk Clothing, NYX cosmetics, Iron Fist, more quirky latex companies, Sick Plugs, La Riche Directions.


What are your goals & aspirations for the future?

To get published in and shoot with the the magazines I love and read myself like FRONT, Bizarre, etc and online mags. To shoot with Scott Cole, to go over to America and to shoot in Europe. To keep doing what I am doing but on a bigger scale and maybe even full time! Do video shoots for bands and maybe do a few tours as a merch girl!
