"I have been very fortunate to have worked with some of LA's hottest celebs, whether I interviewed them on the red carpet, or I was able to model with them in a fashion spread, now I'm even working behind the camera photographing them. I stay pretty busy," Krystle Lina tells Ohmygossip.com exclusively.
Please, tell us about yourself? I am a working model, host, and photographer. I have been very fortunate to have worked with some of LA's hottest celebs, whether I interviewed them on the red carpet, or I was able to model with them in a fashion spread, now I'm even working behind the camera photographing them. I stay pretty busy.
Who is your role model and why? Marilyn Monroe, because I love her essence. I love that she exudes beauty and her sexuality. She was, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful women in the world.
What was the best advice you've been given? If you want something done right, you need to do it yourself. Pretty much a classic statement, but it's the most true thing anyone has ever told me. I don't like to rely on other people to get things done for me, I prefer to get things done on my own. It's much more gratifying when I've achieved a goal.
What do you do in your spare time? In my spare time.... What spare time?? Haha! Honestly, whatever spare time I get, I like to help other people. Every year I walk for MS (Multiple Sclerosis), which for those of you who aren't aware of the disease, please research it. I have people that are close to me who are affected by this, and it's really scary what it can do. I have also participated in other charity events, that are important to me. I know a lot of us are busy, and it's easy to get caught up in our own lives, but I think it's important to get involved with helping others especially in your own community.
Let´s talk about fashion too. Please describe your style? What do you wear most? I am so plain!! All I really wear is tank tops and jeans, or tank tops and skirts... :) I really go all out with shoes and handbags though. That's definitely my thing. :)
Who/what inspires your fashion? My fashion inspiration comes from music, and the internet. I'm constantly online shopping, looking to see what's new.
How long do you spend on your outfit each day? I honestly just throw on whatever I'm in the mood for that day.
Is there one piece in particular that you would say is your signature piece? Aside from plain white tank tops?! LOL. When I buy designer dresses, I don't usually wear them more than 2 or 3 times, so I can't really say that I have a signature piece.
What is your favorite accessory? My makeup, I am all about makeup. I don't know if that's really considered an accessory, but I was a makeup artist before I was ever a model, and so I really enjoy doing my makeup. That's the time when I can be creative and do whatever I want, whether it's a smokey eye and a nude lip, or a clean simple look with a bright pink lipgloss.
What do you always carry with you? My cell phone and laptop. I do a lot of my business through email, and can't imagine not having internet access at all times.
What is your favorite fashion store/shop? Who is your favorite designer? I'm really into Nordstrom, I like that I can get everything I need there from my shoes, clothes, handbags, and makeup. :) I don't really have a favorite designer because I go through phases, of what I like at the time. If I was going to name drop a designer, I would have to say Dirty Shirty, maybe I'm a little biased because I've worked with them a lot over the years.
