Tita Tuesday – Raquel Reed

It’s not as egocentric as it sounds…

Raquel Reed

When it comes to Raquel Reed, modelling is just the tip of the sparkly tiara.

The runway darling, MAC make-up professional, singer, burlesque sensation, and Pin Up queen is the new American Dream.

From a young age, Raquel was drawn to “bright girly colors, candy & cartoons”.  These things not only inspired her daring and splashy style, they also gained her 
legions of fierce fans, and the attention of stylists the world over.  Often imitated, but never duplicated, Raquel remains a true fashion and style innovator.


She has walked runways for Ed Hardy & Patricia Field, modelled for New York CoutureLady Lucie, and Mishka NYC, and graced the pages of Auxilary, and Alt Magazine, Tattoo life, Rebel Ink, and Bizarre.  

Best known for her still images, Raquel truly shines when she performs.  Dynamic, sexy, and not afraid to get a little silly, her stage appearances, and video work are truly something to behold.  

A long time fan, I was super excited to find out she would be at the 2011 Ink N Iron Tattoo Festival, as a contestant in their highly anticipated Beauty Pageant.   I tweeted her immediately, and when she messaged me back I nearly died!  Sweet, stunning, and completely down to earth, meeting her was a delight.

Wearing a hot red dress, with hair to match, Miss Reed won the coveted Ink N Iron Beauty Pageant, stealing the show with her unique brand of poise and glamour.


Busy year round with work as a professional make-up artist, modelling engagements, and appearances, I was super chuffed to find out we would be crossing paths at this years Viva Las Vegas
We caught up poolside, where we discussed travel, her work in the make-up industry, and her exciting new projects.  Never one to shy away from taking pictures of pretty people, Mr. Steve Prue captured a quick shot of our reunion.  
I feel incredibly lucky to know this lovely lady personally, and cannot wait for the next time we meet up.  Until then, I’ll happily follow along online with the rest of you 😉
Do you love it?!?
