The sexy tomboy is an archetype frequently fantasized about and rarely realized. Meet rarity Gina Buldorini. The Los Angeles-based model possesses that elusive mix of grit, insouciance and sex appeal, which photographer Jen Senn captured as Buldorini takes an afternoon off to hang by the pool. Get to know more about her (and her love for both speed and beats); then take in her photos below.
Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in the capital of Argentina. I’m a city girl from a humble neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
How did you get into modeling?
They saw me at a mall, I was hanging out with my sister cracking up at some jokes and a guy interrupted us and gave me his card telling me that he would love to take some pictures of me’ when I saw his website I realized he was one of the most successful fashion photographers in Buenos Aires. From then on I did photos with one of the best agencies there. I will always be super grateful to Miguel Esmoris.
What about riding motorcycles? Do people make a big deal about the fact you ride one cause you’re a hot girl?
To be honest, I’m not sure! I do just because I love it. Ever since i was very little I would ride my bike with my dad all over the place and haven’t stoped ever since. And when I moved to LA I had 6 castings per day so I decided to get a motorcycle. Ever since then I have not stoped riding it. I love it!
Same goes for playing the drums!
I always knew i wanted to play the drums, since I was very little. I didn’t have the luxury of getting my own drum set when I wanted to start, but as soon I got the privilege of getting one I did. Once I got that opportunity I found a really good drum teacher and learned very quick. When I moved to LA I stopped playing. I did get an electric one to not bother the neighbors, but it’s just not the same. Now I’m slowly picking it back up, but I have just been too busy with work! I really want to pick it back up and play everyday again as soon as I can.
What’s your perfect day like?
My perfect day of course is not a day where I have to work ja. I can think of many options for a perfect day. One of the things I enjoy the most is to spend time with my family , laughing around and enjoying some great foods . Going on a bike ride the whole day,getting to know a nice place and of course the most perfect days are on vacation !
What’s the sexiest quality in a guy or sexiest thing a guy could do?
To me someone is perfect in general when the ere their real self. Someone who doesn’t pretend to be someone he’s not just to fit in. A guy is sexy when he worries about me, and also when he has a vision in life similar to mine – when a guy has a passion an inspiration an obejective and a purpose in life. That is a very important thing to make me feel attracted.
What makes you feel sexy?
I feel sexy when I’m getting out of the shower before going to sleep, even more so if I have a glass of wine in my hand.
What would your dream photo shoot be like?
I had the possibility of doing a dream shoot just a few days back. It was in a beautiful warm lake in Miami. The lake was surrounded with trees and weather and had the most beautiful crystalline water Of course the team I worked with was amazing as well and that makes the real difference. We had an amazing time.
