A fan of any and all things retro, Monique credits her grandmother for turning her onto classic pin-ups and igniting her modeling career. “She posed when she was young,” explains Monique. “When I was 14, I found all of her pictures under the bed and fell in love with the whole idea of pin-up art. After that day I was hooked. I must have drove her crazy going through all of her old records and trunks of clothes. I wish I could have been around back then.” Nah…We’re pretty happy with Monique being herself right now.
