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!

We did an interview with her for the “Faces Series” …more to come on that! Voted her as the “Girl Next Door!”

Underwear model that we talked with for 15min. Voted her as the most approachable model of the day.

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.

Street clothes models!  Voted them “Please tell me they are single and looking” award.

This is going to sound weird but I'm really impressed how curvy these models are compared to American standards. Some of them even have- gasp! cellulite. Obviously exceptionally beautiful women nonetheless.

Sorry but I dont see any celluite….Typical western jealous girl:)

I don't think that sounds weird at all. Latin women are generally more curvaceous than American/European/Asian women, and here in Colombia, they make it a point to emphasize their bust and butts. And the men seem to appreciate a big butt here, more so than I think you'd find in the USA (Sir Mix-a-Lot being the exception).

I agree with Steph on this one, although I don’t think many of those breasts are real haha…

Yes, and here in Ecuador when I mention having lived in Medellin, both guys and girls mention how pretty the women are there.

Thank you for sharing these women who look real, beautiful, and happy! After all, they are models (so yep, they might have had some enhancements) and have a job to do. I hope that over time, more of these images make it to mainstream publications and the general media reduces the amount of alien-like female images that get distributed. Women need to flaunt their gorgeous curves not shy away from them!

Thanks CG, but the real credit goes to my friend Troy, the photographer whose photos I published (with his permission of course).

Great post and photos!! I have heard great things about Colombian women from several people. I was in many South American countries including Ecuador but these women must not cross the border!
