a Texas girl is the grand prize winner of a photography contest sponsored by Maidenform and MySpace. After entering the Maidenform “This Looks Right” photo contest on MySpace, Jessica Degollado won $20,000 and the opportunity to go behind the lens at an upcoming Maidenform photo shoot.
The winning photo is a self-portrait that depicts Degollado dancing on a couch in a tank top and boyshorts. Her caption was, “This feels right because the photo is the perfect example of being free, young, and being yourself. FREEDOM feels right, and is something we all want. And being yourself is something we should all be, rather than doing what everyone else is doing.”
TLP sat down for a quick chat with Jessica which resulted in a quick mini-interview! 😀
Q: How did you end up sending in your winning photo?
A: I was on MySpace one day, and saw the advertisement for the contest on the main page. I decided to give it a shot, since photography is my life. So I entered the contest and hoped that I would win.
Q: Do you often walk around the house in your underwear?
A: I do, actually, but only when I’m alone in the house. When I lived in Chicago, I’d do it a lot in my apartment. That always reminded me of Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson’s character) in Lost in Translation, and how she would always be in her underwear in her apartment in Japan.
Q: Would you call yourself a real lingerista?
A: I’d say so. I’ve always loved buying lingerie…but especially underwear. I absolutely love underwear.
