SKYN: Kelly, you’re absolutely stunning - you honestly have such a unique look. Could you tell us a bit about your background and where you’re from? 

KK: I grew up in Eastern Europe in Republic of Georgia.

SKYN: Wow - well it certainly worked out for you, those are some insanely beautiful genetics. We love how you rock your stunning, unique Georgian look so well, were you always comfortable in your own skin and in front of the camera?

KK: Honestly I’ve always loved my body, but fitness gave me a lot more confidence. Being in front of camera has always been my hobby. I love to pose and to look at beautiful pictures of myself afterwords.

SKYN: Well they certainly are beautiful, and that confidence totally shows. Being such a beautiful and bold model yourself, do you have any tips for aspiring models in the industry?

KK: Just don't go against your morals and never lose respect for yourself

SKYN: Wise words indeed. We love how intelligent and down to Earth you are while also being so beautiful. If you didn't start modelling, what career would you have pursued?

KK: Modeling is not a career for me, I will be pursuing psychology as a career.

SKYN: Wow - beauty and some solid badass brains. That’s phenomenal! We’ve got no doubt that you will go very far with it indeed. You seem to have such great insight, did you have any mentors who really helped mold and guide you?

KK: Not really, When you start modeling a lot of people reach out to you with a lot of talk about different opportunities, but either they want something from you, they wanna use you or they are your real opportunity - it all depends. The important thing is to check and don't trust easily.

SKYN: Fair enough. Seems like a bit of a crazy industry out there. Whats the craziest thing you've done over the last couple years

KK:The craziest thing would be that I moved to USA. I thought myself the English language and I started to live on my own when I was sixteen :)

SKYN: WOW! That is crazy. Crazy impressive! Now that you’ve been living here for so long and have had so many experiences, many to do with modelling do you have any funny ones you’d like to share? Like how about some WTF moments you’ve experienced at a shoot?

KK: I have had some. One was when a photographer was making sexual noises, I never shot with him again. 

SKYN: Ha, that’s hilarious. Totally fair. Ok well now that we’ve got that hilarious mental image locked in our brain, why don’t we move on to some other business. We notice you’ve got a really strong social following. What would you say is the best and/or worst thing about using instagram or social media to boost your career?  

KK: Instagram is great! The only thing that I don't like are the fake likes and fake followers. You can't even tell anymore who's organically popping and who is paying to be popping lol

SKYN: Right?! It’s wild out there. When it comes to instagram though, we’ve got to ask, do you read the comments?

KK: Of course I read the comments! Who doesn't? Lol.

SKYN: Ha, Fair. Ok so a lot of your life is showcased online, but what about the parts that aren’t. Tell us something random about yourself that most people don't know.

KK: I spend most of my time at home, I speak Russian, I'm a book nerd and I know how to cook :)

SKYN: Wow - that certainly is a whole lot of things, a whole lot of great things! Congrats on being able to do all of those. Solid accomplishments and fun facts for sure!  You can clearly do quite a bit, but we’d love to know what are three things you haven’t been able to do yet that you’d love to tick off your bucket list. 

KK: I haven't travelled all of Iceland In an RV, I haven't lived in Fiji for a month with no supplies, and I haven't gotten married to the man of my dreams…. Not yet :)

SKYN: Ha, those are amazing!  What great hopes and plans. We can’t wait to see each and every one of them come true. It’s clear from that list that you love to travel, what’s your favourite city to visit, party and live in?

KK: I love to travel, my favorite city would be Barcelona so far.

SKYN: Ugh, such a dope place. We love it too. Alright, forget places, let’s talk memories. What would be your best memory of the last year?

KK: My best memory of the last year would be my birthday month, because I met my other half and had an amazing time and made amazing memories.

SKYN: Aw, so sweet. Any big goals or plans for 2017?

KK: A lot of plans, and many goals. But while there are many, I'm Just gonna say one. I'm going to move from Miami in the very near future to work on some clothing for my followers and all the lady's around the world.

SKYN: Wow - that’s incredible! Thanks for the lil teaser of what’s to come. You’ve honestly done so well so far, and we cannot wait to see where you will go next. Thanks for chatting with us and best of luck on the upcoming move!
