Revenge is a dish best served cold, one saying goes. And it was what Ivy Divino had in mind when she nervously sent us an email asking if FHM would like to have her model again. [firstpara] She was after all an FHM Girl Next Door once before, so she wasn’t totally coming from out of the blue. long story short, we said yes. We had only one condition, and that is to do her best to satisfy the firm, exacting standards of the online FHM community.
The shoot finally took place a couple weeks since that email exchange. The girl was fierce. She took off clothes at the photographer’s behest, without a single tinge of hesitation in her eyes. Her movements, swift, and her full lips shut tight, thinking it needless to question what the photographers want.
Professional, and straight-to-the-point, that’s who Ivy is. You want ‘sexy,’ here I give you ‘sexy,’ her poses seemed to communicate.
Then came our time to have our customary chitchat with our models, in which it was revealed that there was a deeper reason for her ferocity during the shoot: Her boyfriend had left her for another woman.
And this shoot is her way of telling her former lover of what he’s missing now. Well, Ms. Ivy, we believe your point has been made. She not only completed step one of her revenge plot but she also re-validated to herself that she still had the goods. Come, look and see.
Was this your first time?
Nope. Before this, I have already posed for FHM’s Girl Next Door, and sa isa pang men’s magazine. So yun, mga three times na rin ako nakapagshoot like this kaya wala na ring kaba, inenjoy ko nalang. I’ve learned how to be confident.
What keeps you busy when you aren’t doing photoshoots?
I work of course. Nag-work ako sa isang forwardings and brokerage company. Nagfo-forward kami ng mga shipments, and logistics, mga ganun. But now, I’ve stopped working, due to personal reasons.
So now are you planning to pursue a full-time modeling career?
Sana, kung may kumuha ha ha! Pero kung hindi na ako mag-momodel, I’ll go abroad nalang.
