Who says sexy and silly are mutually exclusive?
We love a provocative pout as much as anyone, but Jasmine Nguyen’s sassy smile in these pics makes her even more appealing. As she strikes a few silly poses and gets comfy on the couch, it’s clear she’s having fun posing for the camera–and we’re having fun watching her.

Hey Jasmine, welcome to Foxy Asia Magazine. How’s everything going?
Awesome! I just got back from my New Orleans trip and I’m already anxious to go back. Want to come?!
We were hoping you could start off with telling us a little bit about yourself. What is your ethnicity and where do you live?
I am 24 years old about to hit that quarter century in October. A recent Marketing graduate from SJSU. Even though people mistake me for Korean 95% of the time I am 100% Vietnamese. I was born in San Jose, CA, grew up in Portland, OR until I was 13 years old and then moved back to the bay. I have always loved the bay but I’ll never forget to show love for the 503.
What do you do to pay the bills? What is your job?
Outside of what you see on social media, I am a product manager for a tech distribution company. Yup your girl definitely lives in Silicon Valley.
What is your guilty pleasure and why?
One of my guilty pleasures is binge watching TV. I can literally sit in front of a TV for hours on end and just watch TV shows or movies. I purposely find ones that have a lot of episodes or wait for new shows to air the whole season so I can just chill at home and never leave LOL.
Which of these would you most like to have: smoking body, clear conscience, or true love?
Hmmm… I would say a clear conscience. Being emotionally stressed over something you haven’t completely settled yet or regret can weigh you down everyday if you leave it unresolved. So I would rather live the rest of my life not wondering “what if?”
Now, can you tell us how you got into modeling? Was it something you always wanted to do?
Some of my friends back in high school always encouraged me to give it a try but I was too shy. I’ve definitely thought about it and have always wanted to try modeling but never had enough courage to pursue it. What made me get into modeling was when a couple of photographers DM’d me on Instagram asking to collab with them because they saw potential in me. They assured me they have worked with new models before and would help guide me during the photoshoot. After my first photoshoot I had so much fun and received a lot of positive feedback so I continued to pursue modeling and here I am! :]
What is the most interesting experience you’ve had on a photo shoot?
I’m so clumsy you can’t take me anywhere! Something always happens to me. I’ve got bad leg cramps before from trying to do certain poses, fell in the pool while on a floatie, almost ate it when I was walking in my heels and for a video… yeah good times hahahaaa.
What goes through your mind as you’re posing for a shoot?
I always play music when I am on set for a photoshoot. It allows me to drain out all of the outside noise and all of the pressure. I focus in on the music and every time I do it helps me feel more comfortable and bring out some awesome photos.
What about your style do you believe makes you most distinctive?
According to @Prcivl, it’s my smile 😀 He said to me it is his favorite feature and is the main reason why he was down to work with me.
What model do you admire the most?
For Asian models, I’ve always been a fan of Dannie Riel. She’s so gorgeous and most importantly she stays true to herself. I love how corky her personality is and how she has no filter. She’s been in the game for a long time but she hasn’t lost herself in this industry. Even though she’s been doing this since I was in high school the bitch still out shinin all of us! (Go ahead Dannie! I still see you girl!)
I haven’t met her yet but I would love to one day :]
We are a men’s magazine after all, so we’re going to dive into some dating questions. What qualities do you look for in a man? Describe your perfect guy.
Overall I’m most attracted to a man with a bomb ass personality. But I’m also a sucker for a guy with a breathtaking smile and is tall!
Someone who can make me laugh, loves long walks through the aisles of Target, adventurous, loves animals, is a foodie like me, would rather get pearl/boba tea over coffee, someone I can trust with the AUX cord, family and goal orientated, smart, a gentleman but also has a little hood in him too, kind and humble, authentic (keeps it 100 with me at all times), has a good sense of style, respectful, and someone who stays on the grind. Oh and I can’t forget the bangin body ;]
Are you single or taken? If taken, how did you meet?
Your girl is single with two dogs and has daddy issues, so if you know someone who can deal with that and has all the qualities I listed above send him my way!
What are you most likely to lie about on an online dating site?
Nothing! Why lie? I’m confident in what I have to offer and he should feel the same. Plus I’m not trying to end up on MTV Catfish LOL.
What’s the craziest thing a guy has ever done to get your attention?
I had a guy constantly blow up my phone, showed up to my work multiple times, asked my friends where I was, found my work email at a new company I used to work at, it was craazyy! This dude was hella persistent I’ll give him that.
What is your secret sexual fantasy?
But if I tell you it won’t be a secret anymore ;]
Well Jasmine, thank you so much. Before we let you go, can you tell our readers where they can find you if they’d like to learn more?
Of course, and thank you for having me! You can find me on Instagram and Snapchat @jasminewinnn. I’m thinking about returning to Twitter and starting a YouTube channel, but we will see. What do you guys think?
You can learn more about your favorite Asian models in our Model Interviews series. We have lots more to come in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned!
