If there isn’t a more picturesque—and simply beautiful as well as storied—European capital, it is Madrid.
The third largest city in the current European Union (EU) after London and Berlin, Madrid—with a population of 3.2 million is a vital European hub in the areas of politics, arts, fashion, entertainment, culture and most importantly sports.
If you are a football fan—sorry Yankees, it is futbol, not soccer—then you are most likely very familiar with the city’s two European powerhouses in Real Madrid F.C. and Atletico Madrid and the exploits of their star players in Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann.
Whether it is futbol or entertainment, Madrid is likely at the epicenter, as it is also the home to famous celebrities such as Julio Iglesias and model/actresses such as Penelope Cruz.
While not as famous or popular as either, local-born boudoir and glamour model Joy Lamore is ready to make a name for herself.
Currently, a freelance model, who has yet to sign with a major agency or model for a brand, the diminutive 5’1 brown-haired beauty has the kind of eye-catching figure and look to become modeling’s next proverbial undiscovered diamond in the rough.
