#FaptasticFriday: Fil-Am model Natalia Lalonde

It's #FaptasticFriday again and our honoree hottie this time around is Natalia Lalonde, a 5-foot, 9-inch model who was born in Turkey, calls Traverse City, Michigan and Vietnam as her hometowns, and is of Filipino, Scottish, German, and French heritage. She's like a United Colors of Benetton ad rolled into one beautiful and sexy package! She's currently represented by New York Model Management and was actually in the Philippines in 2012 for a work-related assignment.

I had managed to get in touch with her then and asked if she'd be interested to appear in FHM Philippines. She was actually very enthusiastic about it but suggested that I get in touch with her management team first just to clear things up. Unfortunately, they nixed the idea saying that she "will not be available for these projects." When I got in touch with Natalia afterward, she explained that the reason they didn't want her to appear in the magazine was that major department stores in the United States won't work with models who have shot for FHM and similar magazine titles. She did say that she was looking forward to appearing in the magazine one day soon.

Well, let's hope that the next time she's in the country, we can finally have her appear in the Philippines' best-selling lad mag. But for now, we'll just have to stay content with her Instagram photos!
