Photo Essay: Sexy Colombian Models

by T-roy on August 5, 2010 · 29 comments

Every July, Medellin plays host to Colombia’s annual fashion week, Colombiamoda.

Billed as one of the biggest fashion events in South America, the 3-day show is an opportunity for local and international designers to share their latest collections, both in a public expo-center setting by day, and on the runways at night.

On the first day, I headed over to Plaza Mayor with Dave to catch a glimpse of the curvaceous Colombian models, and snap a few photos. Entry to the show cost 80,000 COP, or about $40 USD, and our badges stated that we were ” International Buyers.”

Swimsuit models! These girls rocked and were fun to photograph. Every time we walked past them, they struck a pose for us.

The first model of the day that I shot. I awarded her as the winner for best smile!

I used an Orbis Ring flash to get this photo effect. I love it because it makes the eyes pop and gives a soft shadow around the body. Voted her for best eyes! Go figure on that one huh!

Lingerie model that was about 6’2″ (189cm) tall!  I voted her the sexiest model of the show!

She is wearing a painted on shirt. Took me an hour to get this photo because the line around her was crazy the whole time. Voted as “Least Shy” model of the day!

Yes, something for you ladies too. But the ratio of female-to-male models was about 15-1.
