ABIGAIL RATCHFORD, THE QUEEN OF CURVES, IS CREATING A STYLE EMPIRE ON INSTAGRAM.
The attractive social media celebrity shares how she stays in incredible condition, why guys should be more traditional, and why you should pursue successful women. Abigail Ratchford, a model, is eager to make a move on you.
As well as millions of others.
The self-proclaimed “queen of curves” and 5’8″ bombshell has dominated Instagram, pulling together gorgeous photo shoots on her path to nearly 7 million loyal followers.
In 2014, the Scranton native left her hometown to make it big in Los Angeles, and she’s done just that. Ratchford now massages shoulders with celebrities like Famous celebrity Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and flaunts her lavish lifestyle on Instagram and Snapchat with flawlessly posed photos and intimate photo shoots. And, while those posts—those gorgeous, sun-drenched poles—are a key component of Ratchford’s trademark (and allowed start her profession), she’s not accomplished yet.
She now desires her own fashion empire.
“I want to have my own brand, do beauty, lingerie, and come out with other products,” Ratchford told Men’s Fitness. “I’d like to someday work for a considerable company or a combination of companies.” I’ve completed calendars and skate tiers, and I have a bunch of suitors that are really dedicated to me. This year, I enjoy to satisfy some meaningful differences.”
Ratchford’s favourite posts are those that allow her to exercise her imagination. Her first calendar, she claims, had a “iconic” theme: Ratchford recreated classic beauty shoots such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
Her second calendar became even more fanciful. “My famous pictures from this one-time year stood for my calendar,” Ratchford delivered. “We had a lot of props and different things brought in, such as a white horse, a unicorn, giant tea cups, and a big martini glass, which was really fun.” When I exhausted that shoot, I felt like I was in a fantasy planet.”
Ratchford chatted with Men’s Fitness about what males can do to boost their confidence, why people should put down the phone every now and again, and how she stays in shape.
MEN’S FITNESS: HOW DO YOU THINK GUYS UNDERESTIMATE A SUCCESSFUL WOMAN LIKE YOURSELF AND OTHER SUCCESSFUL WOMEN?
ABIGAIL RATCHFORD: Guys can be afraid when a women receives a lot of attention or is successful in her job. Or they believe they are less of a guy if a female has her own problems in her own life. But I don’t believe that is correct. A female who is successful and has her own life, goals, and ambitions, I believe she would want—at least it appears to me—a guy who is equally motivated and accomplished.
I wouldn’t want a guy who is bored or who I could walk all over. Sometimes guys imagine that the girl will be a total dictator who will want to call all the shots. That, I believe, is a major misperception, and it is completely false.
HOW CAN MEN BE MORE CONFIDENT IN DATING, WOMEN, AND RELATIONSHIPS?
I believe that the more time you spend on yourself—it may sound a little selfish, but sometimes you have to be selfish in order to put your best foot forward. I believe that whatever you do, whether it’s a career or a passion or a hobby, if you’re a single guy seeking to become more confident and attractive to the other sex, you should simply invest in yourself. Take your time and don’t worry about the girls.
Go to the gym and kill it, spend extra time at work, and simply build yourself up. And I believe that you will come across as super-confident, successful, and attractive on your own, which will attract the right person at the appropriate moment.
WHAT IS THE Willingly Something YOU See IN A MAN? WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A MAN WHEN DATING?
I appreciate guys who don’t try too hard or who don’t appear—I don’t want to use the word thirsty—but I simply enjoy guys who are more laid back. I like someone who is humorous, has a sense of humour, and is quiety confident to someone who is aggressive or desperate. Someone who isn’t putting on a show to impress me.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MEN DO MORE OF THESE DAYS IN RELATIONSHIPS?
I believe that social media causes men to become overly lethargic at times. It’s sometimes great to talk on the phone with someone instead of just texting all the time. When you’re just getting to know each other, it’s fine to merely text. But every now and then, it’s wonderful to pick up the phone and talk to someone instead of simply typing. Put in more old-fashioned effort. Also, make an effort to surprise girls and do things that are out of the ordinary. Do things more how they were done before social media.
WHAT MAKES A GUY ATTRACTIVE IN HIS DRESS TO YOU?
I prefer guys that don’t make an effort. I’m not suggesting you should always be dressed in flannel and hoodies, but I don’t appreciate people who pull out every single expensive item in their closet to put together an outfit. I prefer more mixing and matching, such as great jeans with a jumper or polo—a more modest look.
WHAT ARE YOUR MOST IMPORTANT SOCIAL MEDIA DO’S AND DON’TS?
Everyone has their own set of standards, but I’ve always aspired to be more than just Instagram postings. I want to have my own brand and make money from my own products. I enjoy promoting my own products and developing my own brand. I’m not a big fan of doing Instagram endorsements. That’s just what I prefer, but there’s nothing wrong with others doing the same.
WHAT DO YOU EAT TO KEEP YOUR FITNESS? WHICH OF THESE ARE YOUR FAVOURITE CHEAT MEALS?
Green drinks and smoothies are my favorites. I’ll add some protein powder in the morning since I feel like the combination of vegetables, vitamins, and other ingredients gives me a lot of energy. My ultimate cheat is a pulled pork sandwich, sweet potato fries, and macaroni & cheese from this fantastic LA restaurant.
WHAT IS YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE LIKE?
Initially, I made the error that many girls make by only doing cardio. I just didn’t see much of a difference in my body. I’ve been listening to my fit girlfriends, and they say you have to do weight training and squats. That’s my new thing: I’ve started doing some resistance training, circuit training, and pilates, which I believe maintains you long and slim.
WHAT DID YOU WANT IN A CAREER WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
I aspired to be a veterinarian when I was younger. I was infatuated with dogs and could name every breed of dog by the age of six. I’m not sure what altered my mind—I still adore animals—but I had severe allergies, so I had to be cautious about the dogs I was around. Then I wanted to be a news anchor, a weather forecaster, or something along those lines.
WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE RECEIVED OR HEARD IN YOUR CAREER?
I just read, “If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan, but never change the goal.” So many times, things didn’t turn out the way I intended or something similar happened, or I was further behind than when I started, but I never changed my aim, so I’d tell myself. You may need to revise your plan of action from time to time, but never let a failed plan influence your ultimate goal.
