Model Spotlight: Asia Berry

By Ashley Wright

Asia Berry, like her name, is one of the most exotic and sweetest models that FVM has ever talked to! Ambitious, grounded, and filled with personality!  Asia is a Missouri native with blonde hair and beautiful hazel eyes that pierces the soul of her admirers.  We know that her future is as bright as the North Star and the only thing that can stop her from making a mark in the fashion world is well... nothing!
Where do you currently call home?
I would say I currently call Missouri home, only because of all of my friends and family.
Besides your birthplace, where have you had the most fun living?
I have the most fun in New York. Living with my sister, who is also my best friend, just makes it that much better.
Where's the most picturesque place you've done a photo shoot?
Bayside Queens. It is so beautiful.
Looking back, which shoot/editorial do you think showed you perfectly?
A very recent shoot with Maxwell Mason; I loved how natural the pictures were, and he was so great to work with.

My dream has always been to work with Victoria's Secret. I've always loved watching the fashion shows and dream about walking in it one day. But who doesn't!
How is it like to have a sister who also models?
It is so great! We are not only sisters, but best friends. It's comforting to have her with me when I'm away from home. We have always looked out for each-other and are very protective.
1516493_506751276107861_472669659_n When you and Noel compete for the same job, does the sibling rivalry intensify?
Surprisingly, sibling rivalry has never been an issue with Noel and I. I think it has a lot to do with how close we are, and that we act more like best friends than just sisters. We are very blessed to have a relationship like we do.
Here's a question courtesy of Noel: What has been your most embarrassing moment?
It's more hilarious than embarrassing. I was shooting in Bayside Queens, and in the middle of a shot, an old man is walking by and dragging a canoe. I thought we would just wait for him to clear out of the shot but the photographer actually asked him to pose with me. I just remember how big he was smiling. It was so funny.
When you have some free time from work, who do you spend that time with?
Whenever I have free time, I spend time with my sister! We just have so much fun together, and have the same sense of humor so we are always joking around and laughing.
What's your idea of a perfect date?
I like creativity. It's just nice to do something different than the ordinary dinner and movie. It also shows that they put a little thought into it.
10576138_278165692388898_752947355_n What approach should a guy use that will grab your attention?
I like when guys are polite and have manners. There is nothing I think is more attractive. And there is nothing I think is more unattractive than a guy who is overly confident and thinks everything is his to take. I like confidence, just not cockiness.
Many people think that models live extraordinary lives, but they enjoy normal things like everyone. What are some of your everyday hobbies?
I love working out. It makes feel great and it makes you look great!
Can you share any nutrition and fitness tips?
Juice cleanses are very effective. They not only help you lose weight, but are good for your overall health. After a juice cleanse, I feel like I have a glow and my hair also benefits.
Can you share any beauty secrets for the everyday woman?
I like to think less is more. I like natural make up, so you still look like you. Natural beauty is the best. I do like smokey eyes for a night time event or a party.
924996_623645454398330_1617654915_n How were you discovered?
It's funny, but I was actually discovered on Facebook. I guess I can't say it is totally useless!
If you weren't a model, what would you want to do?
I have always been interested in criminal investigation. I think it would be a very exciting job; and would not be the same old thing day after day, which I like.
How do you prepare mentally for a shoot?
I listen to my favorite music, which for me is hip hop. Sometime, I try and have the mid set of Beyoncé. Just have extreme confidence.
Can you describe what was going through your mind during your first shoot?
I was very nervous during my first shoot, not having that much experience. But, every shoot, you learn something new about movement on set. Before you know it, movement just comes natural.
Fashion is all about creativity and identifying trends before they become trends. What do you think the next big thing in fashion will be?
I think all trends come back around. I am always surprised to see the latest trend. Who knows what the next big thing will be?
