“I was born and raised in Ohio, I traveled internationally to amplify my modeling career and to expand my education and hence my worldview while also working on my personal fashion styling and shopping business which I now pursue full time. Virtues that inspire me are elegance, entrepreneurial skills, and living with purpose to be kind and spread everlasting value.”
Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! What are the plans this year for you? Hello, it’s a pleasure to debut this incredible issue of Playboy. 2022 is going to be full of business opportunities for me. I founded and run a personal styling and shopping service-based business and I currently have clients all over the world. I’m looking to hire more employees and to continue to exceed expectations for my customers. My business has been doing really well and it has been beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve also been extremely blessed with my modeling and brand representations in the past few years and I’m working hard to ensure that the momentum continues!
What is at the top of your list to achieve the most in the year of 2022? My top goal is to keep expanding Julia Judy Styling, the personal fashion styling business. It has really taken off in the last two years and I’m striving for it to flourish even more. I offer everything from custom clothing to closet makeovers to interior design. I might even adventure into my own clothing line someday.
What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? I believe that intelligence is the highest compliment that you can receive. I’ve earned my degrees from university in communication and business, and I enjoy reading to build up my knowledge every day. I love reading 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes before I go to bed and whenever else I get a free moment. I believe that with understanding and ambition, one can achieve anything that they can dream of.
What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? One of my highest held virtues is elegance, I believe that having a level of class and modesty in today’s world of, “OnlyFans” makes a huge difference for the brands and publications that have chosen to publish me and have had me model for them. It’s an old-school value that I hold close to my heart.
Where are we most likely to find you if not in front of the camera being glamorous? I adore traveling and consider myself to be avid about it. My most beloved pastime is drinking out of a young coconut, on a tropical beach and admiring the natural beauties of the Earth. My dream life would be to go completely off the grid and start a little organic smoothie shack somewhere.
What are some of your biggest passions? My number one passion is collaborating with fabulous brands to spread their mission and products by sharing content for them and by creating content with them. My second passion is learning and growing every day. I probably google 50 questions a day that I don’t know the answer to just because I think it’s interesting to know facts. My last passion would be using my artistic and creative skills. I have such an eye and passion for aesthetics, and I love all things beauty, interior design, architecture, art, and lifestyle.
3 ultimate deal-breakers when it comes to men? A man who is respectful is a must for me. Secondly, I’m very organized and slightly OCD so no messiness and clutter in personal spaces, including their car and their living area. Lastly, I need someone who desires to get to know each other to our core and love every part of the person, the good and the not so good.
What are some of the things that attract you to a man? Ambition is so sexy to me. A man who knows what he wants, takes initiative, and goes after it. Nothing can top that.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? I’m going to continue to work hard on Julia Judy Styling and expand more into the fashion field as well as continuing to model for fantastic brands. I also come from a very large family, each of my parents has five siblings. I see myself having a beautiful destination wedding, in either Italy or Monaco, and shortly after finding a home and starting a family. I’m also very eager to get a dog but I’m waiting until I have a home first! I think Dachshund dogs are adorable.
What is the wrong way to approach you as an admirer? Definitely not giving me your number when I’m on another date! Once upon a time, I was on a date sitting close and having a cocktail with my boyfriend and another man slid his number over on a napkin, when, it was very obvious that I was not available. I would say that’s the most confident yet wrong way to approach me.
