And she says modelling is a great way to forge a career in showbusiness.
“For someone who is just starting in the entertainment industry, getting into male modelling is your opportunity to be seen, tried and tested.
“It’s your chance to carve out a unique path in the world of entertainment. For me, I grew up as a dancer. But every opportunity can always lead to something and I always followed that.
“That’s the same as being a model. It opens your door to opportunities and the potential of a completely new different and exciting life.”
Speaking about our competition partner Storm model agency, who launched names like Kaye Moss, Cara and Poppy Delevigne, Lily Cole and Cindy Crawford, Kimberly said: “Storm Models does have a sixth sense for people and models and talent.
“(Storm boss) Sarah Doukas has a talent for how people – even the guy next door – might fit in in any given campaign. Sometimes you see these huge big name male models.
“Sometimes when they are off the catwalk they just look like guys next door. But they might have a certain bone structure or vibe, or something about them that looks aspirational and exciting in pictures. Storm will find that talent.”
Asked what sort of personality you need to be a male model, Kimberly said: “There has got to be a level of determination and persistence to have longevity as a male model.
“There’s room for so many different types of looks and people in the modelling industry. There has to be the tenacity and drive to take on the rejection. In the entertainment business, rejection is such a huge part of it. You just have to keep going and believe in yourself.”
Kimberly spoke about the first time she met him when he was a model on stage at one of her gigs. They hit it off, married, and now have three kids!
“When I first met Max, I was backstage getting ready to perform. I looked around the corner and there were six hot male models. Him and his male model mates with their incredible physiques and I was a really shy person. So I could barely say ‘hello’ to him.”
And was he the best of the six? Kimberly said: “Of course. Obviously. But it wasn’t until a few weeks later that we had a real conversation at the rap party that I saw a real person behind the incredible exterior. And I started getting a better understanding of what he brings to his industry that is so magnificent.”
“Because we are from similar showbiz backgrounds, me from being in Pussycat Dolls, and him from modelling, there is such an understanding when he jets off to gorgeous warm places to do a photoshoot on a beach, and I’m off to tour the world with the Pussycat Dolls.
“But at the same time I have learned so much about the male modelling industry. How hard it is to create longevity in that industry, the people skills are required. The understanding of the best angles and how to get the best shot. Keeping yourself fit both mentally and physically. Even when you are not sleeping when you are going from shoot to shoot.”
