Luana Lani is a Philippine-born glamour model who gained popularity online with her website missluana.com. The 5’1″ beauty now resides in Los Angeles growing her modeling career.
I had the opportunity to ask Luana some questions about her career, her short time in the Philippines and a little about her personal life. Hope you enjoy.

You write on your website you were born in Manila. At what age did you leave the Philippines, and do you have any specific memories of your place of birth? Do you ever go back to visit?
I left Manila and moved to Hawaii when I was five years old. I do have some memories that date back to as young as three years old. I remember eating balut with my family and hearing the vendor outside calling out “balut, balut!” at night. I liked sprinkling it with a little bit of salt. I have been back once, when I was seven, though I haven’t been back to visit since. I would love to go back more often.
How did you get started in modeling? What was your first job?
At age 16, I started a Yahoo! club where I would regularly post photos of myself, which I took myself. Once I turned 18, I sought out professional photographers to work with. My first paid modeling shoot was for a stock photography website.
What are some of the bigger projects you have worked on?
The two biggest shoots I’ve done were for Mystique Magazine and Playboy.
You are obviously a very beautiful woman. What do you do to keep in shape? Do you have any beauty secrets you would like to reveal?
Thank you! I try to do cardio exercise a couple times a week. I love hiking and rollerblading. My beauty secret is that I deep condition my hair every week to keep it strong and shiny.
I guess the question most of your male fans want to know is what qualities do you look for in a man?
I like someone who is intelligent and driven. Someone who has a good heart.
What is your ideal first date?
I’d like to go out to a nice restaurant for dinner, order some wine and desserts, and be engaged in stimulating conversation the whole night.
Is there a special someone in your life?
Yes! I consider myself very lucky.
Have you ever appeared on TV or in the movies?
No, I have no acting experience. I’m a bit camera shy, actually!

What are the big goals for Luana Lani in the future?
I am working on completely revamping my website this year. After that, I’d love to take my photoshoots to a different level creatively. I would also love to travel the world and shoot with other beautiful women.
Luana, thanks for taking the time to talk to me and share with your fans here and abroad.
