Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our nation’s first capital.
A tough, scrappy, unapologetically brash and proud blue-collar metropolis if there was ever one, Philadelphia marches to it’s own distinctive beat and unique flavor.
Whether it is the storied images of Ben Franklin and George Washington penning the Declaration of Independence from England to reliving Rocky jogging up those fabled steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philly is the heart and soul of America.
From The Main Line and it’s mansions to the rowdy and crazy South Street and from Center City to Broad St and North Philly, Philadelphia is a vibrant mix of culture, pop, soul and a proud citizenry that wears their civic pride.
Notable entertainment and sports celebs such as Kevin Hart, Will Smith, Bradley Cooper, Kobe Bryant, Maria Bello, Bill Cosby, Kat Dennings, Tina Fey, Richard Gere and Kelly Monaco all call Philly home.
One other person who is from Philadelphia and is making her own mark in the world of modeling is locally-based glamour and boudoir model, Heather Rose
Born in Philly, and raised in the suburbs, the 23-year-old blonde-haired stunner, has quietly carved out her own unique niche in the world of glamour and boudoir modeling both online and her own Youtube channel. Not signed to any modeling agency as of yet, thanks to her combination of sultriness, curves and killer looks, it will only be a matter of time before she is the next big thing to come out of the City of Brotherly Love.
Below is my Q and A with Heather Rose as we discuss modeling, spring fashion and her unabashed love of her hometown Eagles.
