This week I’m introducing you to an overall talented and amazing girl, Christie Gabriel…you can call her Mistress Chris! With a gorgeous face and a hell of a brain behind it, Christie will impress you with her long lived model career starting from childhood. Read on to hear her run in with Lady Gaga, why she can’t be panty-free at night and where to find her on the web!
What is your name?
What is your ethnicity?
My mom made me French, and my dad made me a Pollock.
What are your measurements?
I did two years in a row on the Fashion Week circuit, Aveda campaign and several hair shows, several David’s Bridal runway shows, and a few different gigs for Home Shopping Network.
Skin Inc Magazine spread, Several covers for Suburban Nitelife Magazine (Chicago), Maquillage Magazine (Barcelona) and three separate editorial spreads for 4pm Magazine (Milwaukee), and I’ll be in the new Graftobian Makeup Catalog.
Tell us about your fam. Who can we thank for arranging such great genes in one individual?
My parents had us when they were really young, so they kind of grew up with us. They didn’t get much help from any of the grandparents so it was sort of an uphill struggle for awhile there.
I’m actually good with it now, as it taught my older brother, sister, and I how to be hard working and independent.
What’s new in your life?
My online magazine, The Model Messenger. For a long time I’ve been mentoring models and holding educational seminars for aspiring models around the globe. I still do that but not everyone can afford to attend my seminars. So I decided that starting a magazine to offer those individuals advice and insider information via the web would be a good way to help.
What is the Model Messenger and what is the future of it?
The Model Messenger is an online magazine, (or rather a database of tons of articles I’ve written) to help less than experienced models learn about the industry they are entering. Every month I add a few new articles, perhaps a video, and a posing slideshow. My main objective is to deliver insight to beginners in a non-condescending manner.
What is the hottest photo shoot you remember doing?
I live by the saying “what happens on European Tours, stays in Europe.” I will tell you though, that it involved a few other sexy lady models, not much in the way of clothing, and a massive fountain in the middle of a foreign town square full of spectators. You can imagine the insanity that ensued!
What are your thoughts on Playboy?
I think I have relatives that subscribe to that magazine!! I wouldn’t want to unexpectedly come across explicit shots of my mom or siblings, and I am positive they don’t want to see me that way either! I would love to be in one of the more tame special editions though, perhaps Playboy Lingerie! I know I don’t have glamourous curves, but I think I have some pretty hot angles.
What is the sluttiest outfit you own?
I made this outfit for a shoot once by just cutting a small jean jacket in half to create a long sleeved, teeny tiny bralette top and the worlds shortest jean skirt. I used a few thin straps of leather to connect the two pieces and Voila! Under boob and butt-cheek showing two piece jean dress. Anyhow, it seems to be a hit with the men folk.
Do you sleep naked? If not, what do you wear?
I keep my panties on, I have this fear of little critters crawling on and in me when I’m sleeping. I can’t protect the holes in my face from these parasites but, my other holes…I can do something about that!
What is your favorite part of your body or face?
Body: I have the cutest boobies, I don’t care what anyone says.
Face: It’s all about the cheek bones!
Do you like chicks?
I’m a lesbian from the belly-button up, but honestly, what woman isn’t?
What was it like being on set with Rickey Martin and P Diddy?
Rickey Martin was a riot! He had a great sense of humor and gave off an incredibly intense sexual vibe.
Sean Combs: All business, all the time. It was funny watching the star struck among us throw themselves at the guy just to make him visibly annoyed. Really nice guy though, to those of us that had any self-respect.
Where are you from and where do you live now?
I’m from the Chicago suburbs and no matter how many times I try to leave, it’s not long before I end up right back here.
When I was out in Miami years ago, I partied like a rockstar with Ivanna Trump. She made sure I had a drink in my hand at all times while she taught me all of her tricks on the dance floor.
Just before Lady Gaga became the icon she is today, I had a run in with her at an upscale club in Hollywood with a photographer friend. She must’ve assumed we were together in a sexual context because, as she passed by our table, she loudly expressed her opinion about gold-diggers whilst staring at me. No hard feelings though, the woman has proven to be a genius since then.
Who is your celebrity crush, both guy and girl?
Guy: I’m tied between (oops, I mean it’s a tie between) Christian Bale and Johnny Depp.
Girl: Natalie Portman
What is your favorite part of a man’s body?
Men are pretty worthless to me without their hands; I do like a nice firm tummy though.
Nickelback. Something about a man with a strong, raspy voice drives me effing wild!
I never understood the appeal of all these bands with lead singers that sound like high-pitched whinny little bitches. Just not sexy whatsoever.
With so many girls competing to do the same thing, what do you try and do to be different?
I know how to walk the line between confidence and arrogance. It’s important in this industry to look high class but you wont get any work if you are not socially approachable at the same time.
As far as offering something different in my work: I am never afraid to break the norm, try something crazy. I always bring random items and fabrics to my shoots and hope that the photographer or art directors will let me play a bit. My theory is it might not turn out to make a cool shot, but maybe it will, only one way to find out.
You might find me on set doing handstands/backbends/kartwheels or toe touches. I keep the energy cranked up from the minute I walk in the door until I leave the studio.
What did your family do when they found out you posed nude?
My dad likes to pretend I don’t model at all, clothing or not, he has always been against it. He is warming up to the idea now, although it took him ten years. We just don’t talk about it at all.
My mom is happy that I get to travel the world doing what I love. She is the most supportive person in my life when it comes to my modeling, even the art and figure work.
Do you play it safe or take the dare?
Take the dare. It might mean sudden death but safe is always boring.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have a six year old son who looks just like me and is at least as wild as I am. I want another baby so bad, but both Ryan, and my career just will not allow it.
Where is the craziest place you’ve ever had sex?
The Vatican. Actually no, I’ve never had sex at the Vatican. I was just kidding about that. But your mom’s bed was a wild time!
My job and my son.
Magazine you love to read?
The Model Messenger (shameless plug, I know).
Harder, better, faster- Which is most important in life?
Better, if you’re not trying to get better all the time, you’re wasting your time.

Story of your life?
I’ve been running away from home since I was 4 years old, and haven’t stopped yet.
