Alba Lydia – October Featured Model

Posted by Ebony on October 18, 2010

It’s October and yes, the fall season is here, tempting us with that option to go outside looking groggy- but don’t fret! We’re here to show you how to keep it cute all year long.

While fashion trends may change with the seasons, smoking hot models are always in style. With her creativity and outgoing personality to assist her staggering photos, this month’s Grade A model Alba Lydia, is flaunting a bold style. Alba’s diverse portfolio speaks for itself so we had no problem with selecting her and her kick-ass style for this month’s feature.

She’s the model-type chick that can be seen gracing the cover of Maxim magazine or strutting down the Victoria’s Secret runway. This girl can do it all. So watch out Adriana Lima, we got another AL coming for your spot! She’s sultry and she’s fun. She’s definitely Grade A.  Check her out guys.

Karen Tysin – August Featured Model

Posted by Ebony on August 9, 2010

Summer is coming close to an end, and the weather can’t seem to present us with a steady forecast. One minute its scattered showers and the next, we’re getting blinded by the white-hot sun. But even with the occasional thunder storms; one thing for sure is that the heat keeps coming. Just like the weather, our featured model selection  remains unpredictable, yet increasingly hot. These are the type of women that’ll have you coming back for more. If it were any other way, it just wouldn’t be Grade A.

Karen Tysin, our featured Model for the month of August, has a look that is absolutely stunning. Her exotic sex appeal is quite obvious when viewing her photos. Not so obvious is the journey that Karen has paved for her self by persevering through hard times. From overcoming scams; a known hoax of the modeling industry, to successfully dealing with consequences of mistakes that were made out of young age. We all remember what it is like to be young and know how vital it is to our growth to learn from those most impressionable years. Karen has demonstrated what it means to be undefeated by a battle that would typically kill the drive of an aspiring model. Read the rest of this entry »

Angelina Polska “Angee” – June Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on June 9, 2010

Well in case you haven’t noticed the heat outside, let me be the one to tell you– it’s definitely been warming up across the continental United States. Good thing too, because with all the unpredictable ups and downs in weather, I still thought it’d be possible to have an all white July 4th (and I don’t mean linens and yacht parties).

Its evident that June is here, and with the new month brings a new model. Models come in many different shapes and sizes, some genres of modeling require certain types while other genres can use an array of models. In accepting that fact, we here at Grade A refuse to limit ourselves to one category of model. With saying that, if you think you should be the Model of the Month make sure you submit your information with a few photos to

Grade A recognizes the effort needed paired with the talent possessed that will get you to that higher level. As an official Playboy model, Angelina aka “Angee” possesses these skills and abilities. Not only is she gorgeous but she takes the art of selling herself and what she adorns to the next level. Make sure you check out Angee’s full port on Model Mayhem, her Website, or just follow her on Twitter. Hit the jump to see the pics and read her profile. Read the rest of this entry »

Kameco Cuaolo “Kam” – February Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on February 7, 2010

Here we are–February, the month of love, when everyone is scrambling for Valentines, or for gifts for their Valentine. A month when the demand for chocolate looks like that of oil in the global market place. The winter season is coming close to completion, and as the snow covers the ground on the east coast, many of us are indoors awaiting the annual Super Bowl. Saints vs. Colts, who will prevail? That’s a question of time, and in due time we shall see; it’s out of our hands.

One of the only things we have control over, is the model of the month. We try to bring you a model who exemplifies “Grade A” both in her shoots, and behind the scenes. This month, we present to you Kameco Cuaolo also known as “Kam”. A native of California, Kam is a full time model at the age of 19 and has clearly been on the grind. She has done photo shoots for the likes of Drummer Boy and Steven Segal, radio shows on both Sirius and XM stations, book covers and magazines. She has been in music videos ranging from artists like the New Boyz and Snoop Dogg to Fall Out Boy. She’s done plenty of runway modeling and promo modeling. Her resume is extremely impressive and is as long as the service record of a career military officer. Check her out on Myspace, Twitter, and Facebook. Say hello, she’s pretty friendly.

When we say “Grade A Model” we mean just that. It’s a level of quality that goes beyond just the photos we put up. The daily life and routine of a model such as Kameco is exactly why we have this feature. To spotlight models who are working hard to accomplish their goals (and look good doing it). Well if you’re not ready for the photos just yet, I can assure you that I am. Take a look, read her responses, cause she’s Gotta Be Grade A! Make sure you leave a COMMENT good or bad.

Raya Reaves “Miss Raya” – January Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on January 15, 2010

What? Of course I know it’s mid-January. Oh you thought I forgot…. Nope! Here she is, January’s Grade A Model of the Month: Raya Reaves. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Raya’s “girl next door” look is just what we need here at Grade A. Just as the phrase would suggest, there’s a lot more to this light eyed southern chick with a gorgeous smile. She’s definitely Grade A Material. For this month, with major help from the Grade A Model Coordinator, we made some minor updates to the questions we ask our models.

Being considered for model of the month means we look at a lot more than just your port. Many talented models who have graced our inbox with photos have been turned away because we didn’t think they’re lifestyle was “Grade A”. The things you do to perfect your craft, and go beyond the talent you were given are the things that we look for. So instead of me trying to tell you why they’re Grade A, they can tell you for themselves. As usual, there’s plenty of photos for your viewing pleasures. Make sure to hit her up on Model Mayhem, Twitter, Myspace, or on her wonderful site (full port). Now go check out Miss Raya… Read the rest of this entry »

LaShanna Armour “Shanna Sweet” – December Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on December 5, 2009

It’s been since October that we introduced you to our last Grade A Model of the Month. Consider this our apology. It’s been busy and we’re kind of picky/selective (well I mean clearly, we only choose the Grade A ones). Now we have a good number of upcoming models so we won’t be missing a beat. We’re thinking about starting up the Male Models section too, just because they’re models too, and because that’s what the ladies want to see. (I’m a marketer, consumer relations and customer satisfaction is my specialty.) Also, we will be increasing the diversity of our models. Big, small, black, white, yellow, green, short hair, long hair, no hair, as long as your work is Grade A, we want you. If you’re not in school, don’t be scared away by the “current school/class” thing. Send your photos! Also, photographers, don’t be afraid to send in your models’ work, we take those too. So make sure to e-mail 5 or 6 of your Professional photos to so that you can be considered.

Now for the feature presentation- December’s Grade A Model of the month LaShanna Armour aka Shanna Sweet. She’s quite the addition to our Grade A Model series. Steadily trying to improve, and grinding to make things happen for herself she exemplifies the qualities of a Grade A Model. She is continuously hard-working, and works to perfect her craft. What more can you ask for? Make sure you check her out on Model Mayhem, Myspace, Twitter, or Facebook. Now hit the jump for the reason you’re even looking at this! Read the rest of this entry »

McKenzie Harris “Mak” – October Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on October 1, 2009

The woahs of September, the trials of the summer, as well as the bright sunny days have all gone with the wind that has ushered in this new month. Welcome October with open arms as “cuffin’ season” has officially begun. We slim fellows are starting to go out of style (no more jerkin’ and skinny jeans) and ladies start looking to cuddle with the likes of Blake Kelly, Rick Ross and even Big Pun. I still don’t see the problem with us skinny dudes when the cold front arrives; nothing a nice big blanket can’t cure.

This month, Grade A Models presents you with McKenzie “Mak” Harris, a student at HU who comes all the way from Austin, TX to the wonderful east coast. Though I’m sure she’s missing the heat back home, she’s definitely a warm addition for this month’s Grade A Model of the month. Check her out on Twitter or at Model Mayhem or email for requests at Mak does make-up too. Well what are you waitin for? Hit the jump for her full profile.
