LA Calendar Motorcycle Show Queen Mary Models
One of the traits that make humans the most complex class of beings on the planet is their inclination for change. You may enjoy your job, but you need a vacation. You love Panda Express, but just that once, you might want to get that Jack Daniel’s Chicken at Fridays. It’s what makes life interesting. So, with a little break in the import scene schedule, I thought that for just one week, I could try a different flavor. You know…mix it up for you Model Vanity fans. So I thought about what you guys haven’t seen much of lately. We’ve covered beauties with Bimmers, cuties in convention halls, and hotties in hotel ballrooms. We’ve seen models inside, outside, seaside, and inland, but you know what? We usually see models with cars. What about hot girls and motorcycles though? It just seemed like an obvious love affair like cookies and milk, yet the pairing is surprisingly not as common or publicized, at least in Southern California. But it’s out there if you look for it, but aren’t you lucky to have Model Vanity doing your dirty work for you? Yeah, I thought so…
The Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show and Calendar Girl Music Festival was held on July 16, 2011 at the Queen Mary Seawalk Village in Long Beach, California. For twenty years, the event has been showcasing this fantastic union between beautiful women and some of the sexiest two-wheeled machines you’ll ever see. I was thinking, “Damn, why is this my first time coming here?” I guess it’s better late than never. In a way, it felt like coming into a new class for the first time. It’s like you feel like you don’t know anybody there or their professional histories. I really didn’t. I didn’t expect to see the same booths I usually found at events either. With the exception of one, I was pretty much on target. But as you learn in school when you’re the shy little newcomer, you never get taken in unless you reach out. And you know what? I found some really cool people at the event.
Immediately, I couldn’t help but notice Milla Zilla stand and make her mark…literally. At the press gate, she was in charge of placing the special privileges symbol on attending media with a marker. Dude, when I tried to rub that sucker off of my wrist later in the evening, it refused to take a hint and fade away. But I guess that was perfect foreshadowing for the lasting and memorable experience I would get with her. Shooting with this beautiful Utah native, you’re instantly taken by a piercing vibrant elegance that infuses a youthful sparkle into each shot effortlessly and consistently. You’ve probably felt something similar with that girl who just got out of college that you see next in line to interview for your desired position, but you totally forget about your game plan because you can’t help but think how she makes you feel like a man and a boy at the same time. Milla’s intuitive use of movement and poise, however, infuses her photographs with that graceful sensuality that flirtingly counters the previous assertion. The viewer’s senses are then left to quarrel between themes of both the immaculate and the most seductive, thus creating dimension and suspense to every shot she’s in focus. Therefore, such qualities could justify a spot for her in that high fashion, black-and-white motif publication on the waiting room table rather than on that couch across from you inside your job pool. In addition to her skills in front of the camera, Milla was ever so accommodating with the fans and attendees throughout the show, eager to keep the lively spirit of the event going through the long hours in the sun with smiles and fan photo ops. She was an awesome representative for the event.
If you’re interested in seeing some of Milla’s upcoming work, you might want to check out www.fastdates.com and browse their motorcycle and pin-up themed calendars that they have for sale. Milla, short for Camilla, might be in quite a few. Here’s a sample of what you have to look forward to.

Modeling for Triumph Motorcycles was the ravishing Michelle Duran Shear. A prophetic vision of her at this show must have been what that dude was channeling back in the 80’s when he wrote “Lady in Red.” Hey, I was inspired…who wouldn’t with this incarnation of charmed sophistication?

Alena Dawn was also on hand representing Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. Didn’t have much time with her, but I knew I had to hang with her as long as I could. In hot days like this one, could you blame me for sticking with this embodiment of enrapturing coolness? I mean, I don’t think I need to drink Sprite anymore…

Riders Eye GPS had the gorgeous Kimberly Medina out front and center to greet the arriving attendees, providing people a great first impression of this motorcycle showcase event. With an unfiltered radiance alluding to that basic quality that inspires the pageantry of feminine beauty within our society, she didn’t have to do all that much to get people feeling right at home in her presence.

Jordan Hallen and Kelsie Acosta were also stylin’ and profilin’ nearby. I figured I had nothing to lose, and I mustered enough courage to ask them for a photo op. Well, I actually got the hint from their booth, appropriately tagged “Nothing to Lose Apparel.” But sometimes I like to act all brave and shit when I approach cuties like these two.

Here’s a question for you guys. What’s hotter than hot chicks on bikes? Give up? Well, here’s a hint. Sara Harrah and Nalani Pacheco of AFT Customs showcased some of their amazing work for all to see at their booth during the event. And you know what? I don’t think they hired a single promo model. Well, why hire when you can do it yourself? Oh, and the answer to the above inquiry…hot chicks who build and customize bikes…

By the way, the hot ride Nalani is sitting on, “Sentoh,” won “Best of Show.” Congrats to AFT Customs from Model Vanity!
Representing Long Beach BMW Motorcycles was the beautiful Brittany Zane. For the camera, Brittany provides a unique brand of down-to-earth adorability with an added glint of mysterious allure that can fascinate and intrigue a viewer. You guys know what I’m talking about. You remember that hot friendly head cheerleader that always hung out with you for reasons you had no idea about, but you knew it wasn’t because of the magnetism of your jaw encompassing headgear? You get that feeling about her. I guess you could say her photography is a true expression of self, as she is really that nice. Nice people are great promotional representatives. For example, she expertly redirected our friendly conversation into a promo opportunity for a Bikini Bike Wash and Bike Night Stunt Show happening at the Long Beach BMW Motorcycles branch located at 2125 E. Spring St. on Saturday, July 30th, 2011. The event is being held to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. She said, there’d be a lot of material there for Model Vanity. She could be right. Maybe you guys should go too. With hot bikini girls and a great cause, how can you go wrong, right? Oh, yeah, you wanted to see Brittany, right? Here she is…

Natalee Phillips and Kimberly Wong were at the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute booth being all sorts of amazing. These two models really showed what they had to offer in front of the camera as you can see from these examples…

Lexani…now there’s a familiar brand from the car show scene. Apparently they bring hot models to these motorcycle shindigs too. Let me introduce you to the gorgeous Nicole Lange. I’m still a bit entranced by how the sweetness and delicateness of her expression contrasted so appealingly with the attention-grabbing, form-fitting leather chaps. I guess she was just a little bit of country and a little bit of rock n roll. That works for me…

Now, I don’t usually snap pictures of media people. But this time, I had to make an exception. I have no idea who she is, what organization she works for, or even what channel her coverage is airing on. But one thing’s for sure. this is some damn good television…
In conclusion, I have to say that the 2011 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show was a success. I got to visit the Long Beach coastline again. I found some amazing new talent I’ve never encountered in my travels previously. Sure, it wasn’t as big or as expansive in area as some other events. But I guess all that matters is that you enjoy the people within it. And how can you not enjoy a group of people with passion, people who design, build, ride, and appreciate the intricacies inherent in the craftsmanship of a great motorcycle? The answer should be obvious. Passion is a very attractive quality that we cannot deny or overlook. We, here in Model Vanity, would like to thank those women who really bring that message home to every viewer around the world and to every show they work in. Girls, you rock!
So MODELS, if you see Model Vanity in your neck of the woods, don’t be shy. We just want to capture that passion you bring to everyone around you and send it out around the world. You deserve your fandom. Because in this business, it’s all about the vanity…Model Vanity…
