Kathy Lantigua is, quite simply, a stunningly gorgeous woman. When she’s not showing off her assets in magazines like Show, or shaking what her mama gave her in countless videos, she’s working as the best-looking law firm receptionist in the tri-state area. In our interview, we talked about working with Chris Brown, falling in love with Bradley Cooper, and why a man needs to carry a pack of gum if he wants to talk to her.

Take us through a typical day in the life of you. What do you do, as a model? What do you do when you’re not modeling?
My life consist of me going to the gym and heading to several castings a day. But when I’m not modeling, I’m working my 9 to 5 as a receptionist for a law firm.
You’ve done several videos for several major artists. Which was your favorite video to do, and why?
My favorite video would have to be Julez Santana featuring Chris Brown’s video for “Back to the Crib.” I had such a great time on set. I love that I got to walk the runway and show everyone what I was working with. It was also a pleasure working beside Chris Brown.
You have an absolutely amazing body. What do you do to stay in shape?
I go to the gym Monday through Friday. I also have a trainer and I watch what I eat. It’s important to stay fit. The better I look, the more gigs I book.
Who is your celebrity crush, and why?
Bradley Cooper. When I first saw him in The Hangover, I fell in love…I love his eyes.
What does a man have to do to win your heart?
He has to have confidence. He also has to have a sense of humor, as well.
What is the ultimate turn-off, or dealbreaker, in a man, for you?
A man with bad breath.
What would you say is the biggest misconception of you? Why do you think people have this misconception?
People think I’m stuck up. People think my life so easy. I have a bachelor’s degree and work two jobs besides being a model. I think people have this misconception of me because, as a model, they think I can get anything I want…but that’s not the case. I have a level head on my shoulders and can support myself without the aid of a man.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring model, what would it be, and why?
Always update your portfolio. It’s very important that you always keep taking new pictures. That’s how us models get booked.
