SEXY Belfast glamour model Jade Entwistle is proving that it’s possible to have beauty and brains.
The sultry psychology student was the only model from Northern Ireland and Ireland invited to Europe’s answer to the Playboy Mansion this summer.
Every year glamourvilla.com invites some of the UK and Europe’s top glamour models for some sun, sea and sexy photoshoots.
This year’s Glamour Villa was based in the beautiful Portugese island of Faro.
And for brainy Jade it was a welcome break from the stress of university exams.
She’s just completed her first year of child psychology and childhood studies with the Open University.
Jade, who celebrates her 20th birthday this weekend, said: “Generally people think it’s strange that although I have the capabilities to study a university degree that I would want to model in any way.
“Most people think when you’re a glamour model that there isn’t much upstairs but certainly the people I know in the industry definitely smash that myth.
“When I was asked to go to the Glamour Villa I couldn’t believe it, to be given such an opportunity to work with some of the best photographers in the business in an all expenses trip to Portugal for six days it would have been hard to say no.
“I spent the whole time exploring the island, spending time in the most beautiful beaches doing photos and having the time of my life.”
Earlier this year Jade was signed by fellow Belfast glamour model Laura Lacole to Frontier Models.
Frontier Models, owned by Laura, is a new UK and Ireland modelling agency catering for fitness, fashion, lingerie and glamour models.
“When Laura approached me to sign with Frontier I felt it was a chance to become part of a diverse team of models based in Northern Ireland” said Jade, adding: “Laura has finally brought a much needed sexy boost to local modelling while still representing people on a national and international level.”
And when it comes to the future, Jade’s got her head screwed on.
She said: “I’ve a few more shoots to do over the summer but come September I’ll be getting back into my studying again as well as modelling throughout term time.
“I’ve always been a bit of a geek, I love learning and love studying. I suppose people think that’s probably the opposite from what glamour models want to do.
“At the end of the day you can’t model forever and I want to be able to have a career that I can do as well as modelling.
“Even while modelling I’m constantly learning about the industry and taking everything in. It’s important to learn every day and it’s something I enjoy, just like modelling.”
