From appearing on varies online websites to her own vines videos. Recently, the playful model squeeze me into her tight schedule to talk about both her personal life and career. 

Here is my interview with Kendra Kouture. 

Where were you born, and how was life growing up for you? 

I was born in Muskegon,MI. In a suburban area with my sister and my Mom and Dad. I went to a predominately white high school and mainly shook system.

Tell us, how did you come up with your stage name, “Kendra Kouture”?

(LOL) Well, the name Kendra Kouture derived from my first entertainment name “Miss Kenge” and that came from me and my best friend Lindsey, she was Linds and i was Kenge! (LOL) Better name, after traveling to LA and meeting with Sean Cummings, CEO of SHOW Magazine. He basically said, “That the name Miss Kenge had to go!” So, on the way home in the car we kicked around some names and I love Juicy Couture. Plus, I love everything Couture and it basically defines who i am! Hence the name Kendra Kouture. 

How did you get started in urban modeling, and how long you’ve been doing it for?

I got started about 5 years ago, i started off as a promoter and everyone around me just kept telling me that i should be in front of the camera instead of behind it! I did a couple local guys videos and mix tape covers, then i met Mr. 1204, my manager. And we just hit it off and been rocking ever since!

Can you describe your personality? 

I’m very goofy type of female, i love to laugh and have fun!

What would the average person say about you? 

The average person would obviously notice my loving and caring nature! That’s who i am, i love everyone! I want to see everyone happy!

What would you consider to be your strongest attribute?

I would consider my strongest attribute to be my eyes and smile. Of course, everyone else would say my ass! (LOL)

Before modeling, what were you doing previously? 

After college, i dabbled in the dental field. Then i ended up in retail. 

In a recent interview, you stated that you graduated from college and have a degree in dental assisting. Do you plan on going into the dental field when you retire from modeling? 

Oh no, i have no plans on going back to to the dental field. Believe it or not, it’s a lot of politics involved. 

What do you like best about being a model? 

What i like the most about being a model is the attention. I love to dress up and take pretty pictures. 

What are the perks and benefits of being a model?

The perks are you get to be the center of attention, free clothing, makeup, and can’t forget the parties. They are the best! (LOL) 

What has been the most memorable experience you had working as a model? 

Winning the the Urban Model Award is the highlights of my career. But being featured in SHOW Magazine is also a highlight of my career as well. 

Do you see yourself venturing into other fields, such as acting, music, etc?

Oh yes, I love acting and that’s one of my goals to be a well known actress! I plan on being a mogul in the entertainment field and take over the game. 

I imagine you have a huge fan following, do you most of your fans recognize you in public or are you very low-key when you are out?

I get a lot recognition now! But i try to keep them calm and just speak, and hope they don’t cause a scene.  (LOL)

Where do you see your career going in the next 5 years?

In the next 5 years, i plan on gracing the covers of the most predominant magazines in the game. I also hope to have a lead in a few movies, music videos, and as well starting my own clothing line and show line. 

On a personal level - What keeps you motivated?

I just try to keep myself motivated by always striving for perfection and going harder than i went before. 

How important is to have support from family and friends?

I have come to grips with the fact that everyone will not support or understand my line of work. As long as my daughter is being taken care of and she’s happy, it really doesn’t matter what anyone thinks. Don’t get me wrong, of course in a perfect world it would be great, but unfortunately it doesn’t always happen like that. 

Do you have any secret weaknesses or guilty pleasures?

I love PIZZA!!! That’s my guilty pleasure!

I would have to say, Miami, South Beach. 

Favorite movie?

I love the Green Mile, i also love I am Sam, I loved Belle, and All Dogs go to Heaven. 

Burning question: Are you single?

Yes, I am single!!

What do you look for in a man?

I want a gentlemen who smells good with a basketball build! He has to have waves and a great smile!

You recently won the Urban Model Award for Best Ass-ets, how did you feel when you won? 

I felt like i finally made it happen when i won the Urban Model Award! I felt accomplished. 

Was the competition tough for you in that category? 

Yes, i honestly feel like it was the hardest category. Of course, i’m being biased. 

What is next for Kendra Kouture? 

The world is what’s next for Kendra Kouture!
