What Women Want
Regiane de Almeida Gallery
JOE chats to bombshell model Reggie de Almeida on what she wants in a man…
Full Name: Regiane de Almeida
Hometown: Sao Paulo, Brazil
Height: 5’’ 7 and half out of heels
Your own favourite feature: My black bum
Drink of choice: Jameson with 7UP or depending on the pub a nice pint of Guinness
JOE: Tell us a bit about you…
RdA: I never thought of being a model before, but this year a friend of mine convinced me to get some professional photos done and they were good! I got signed up with Rebecca De Havalland Model Management straight away.
JOE: What do you want in a man in terms of body type?
RdA: A rugby fullback, winger-type build.
JOE: First thing you notice in a guy?
RdA: White teeth. A nice smile gets my attention.
JOE: What should we be wearing on a first date?
RdA: Show your own style. If you don’t have one just look at some hot celebrities and base your look on theirs. Try to avoid check shirts, unless you’re very confident, a rock star or look like David Beckham!
JOE: How long after should we wait to text you?
RdA: If there’s chemistry on the date definitely the same night! To me it shows the guy is really interested.
JOE: How about on a night out?
RdA: Again, if you like the girl, don’t be playing games. There isn’t much point in slobbering all over a girl in Coppers, practically proposing over a pizza slice and then ‘playing it cool’ for the next three days.
JOE: Your weirdest crush?
RdA: I used to love Ryu from the Street Fighter back when we had a Sega Megadrive (Shoryuuuuken!)
JOE: What aftershave should we be going for?
RdA: This is very personal. Go for something compatible to your age and a good well-known brand. Right now I like ‘Boss’.
JOE: What do you look for in a guy? And if you say "Sense of humor," you have to go on a date with Ugly Dave from accounts...
RdA: [Laughs] Fantastic!
Ok, here’s the truth, we all want the same.
A nice guy that treats us, our family and friends with respect, has a stable job, handsome, charming, surprises us with actions or presents (they don’t necessarily need to be expensive ones, a simple rose will do, it shows you’re thinking of that person.)
Great in bed and not afraid to try different things or places and commits himself to make his girl have an orgasm or at least get close to having one!) Truly enjoys spending time with us and doesn’t waste every weekend getting drunk with the lads.
JOE: What’s your creepiest guy moment…
RdA: I’m from South America.
Nothing that Irish guys do creeps me out - a Brazilian guy will literally grab you on your way into a nightclub! I think what a lot of Irish girls might call ‘creepy’ I just call brave.
JOE: Now… a few questions for us what’s the outfit that's got you the most attention (in reality, not in a photoshoot!)
RdA: I was wearing a pair of skinny jeans (I think ‘painted on’ is the expression) at a Des Bishop gig at the International bar.
As I stood up to go to the bar he practically stopped the gig to have everyone stare at my bum. Thank God I can’t turn red!
JOE: Halloween - do you go funny or slutty?
RdA: Last year I had this big Snow White dress!
I guess everyone got the irony. I might go a little bit slutty this year though. I was thinking of Catwoman, what do you think?
JOE: Turn offs?
RdA: Bad hygiene - bad teeth, big dirty nails, excess of hair in the body (a good trimming down there is great - no one likes a big bush!).
I also have to mention drunken losers in nightclubs grabbing my arse! The type who wouldn’t have the guts to even talk to a girl two pints earlier. Big turn off!
JOE: Turn ons?
RdA: Tight sexy boxers.
JOE: Favourite swear word?
JOE: Are you any use in the kitchen?
RdA: Did you not see the picture of me cooking? Or is it a double-meaning question?
JOE: Can you change a tyre?
RdA: Of course not. Can you tell me the difference between primer and foundation?
JOE: Boldest place you've ever had "relations"?
RdA: My brother is going to read this, I can tell though [Laughs]. I think I can mention the dinner table. Is that okay?
JOE: Your girl crush…
RdA: Only one?
Most of the Victoria Secret girls, Rosanna Davison, Megan Fox, Scarlett Johansson. Loads of girls! My lesbian side is strong!
JOE: Finally… Are you single?
