An Editorial from VIVA GLAM Magazine’s Classic Glam Issue
This just in! We have the exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the Classic Glam Issue cover shoot with Scarlett Burke. Check it out!
It was in junior high that a math teacher suggested that Scarlett become a model. The teacher claimed that Scarlett would grow up to look like Christie Brinkley and even referenced the Vacation Movies.
She must have been on to something, because Scarlett did become a model and later, even played opposite Christie Brinkley in the Infiniti QX60 commercial, a ‘Family Vacation Holiday’ spoof. Read below to see Scarlett’s photos, to hear some of what Scarlett has to say, and to see what Scarlett is up to now.
Do you have any funny or wild stories from “on the job”?
“We did a really fun and beautiful shoot in Punta de Mita Mexico at a VERY secluded but gorgeous resort for about five days. Little did we know that the male model /”wardrobe stylist” that was on our crew had been on the run from the FBI for years! He was on their ‘Top 10 Most Wanted List’! He was arrested on the plane as soon as we landed in LA. I broke out in hives and almost barfed in my purse.”
Do you have any advice for young women who see your images and think that is how they should look?
“Oh boy, well it makes me sad that as women, we are so prone to compare ourselves, rather than focus on what we love about ourselves individually. I hope women know, that almost every single photo out there is photo-shopped, and that hair and makeup can take hours for a team of talented artists to create. So if you find yourself looking at a photo and think you should look like that person, know that they don’t even look like that. We seem to always want what we don’t have; curly or straight, tailor petite, porcelain or tan. Love who you are and focus on what you love about yourself! Your inner beauty will take you much further than your outer beauty.”
Currently, Scarlett is taking the nation by storm as a country singer! Check out Scarlett’s work on iheartradio.
