If there's one thing we love here at FHM more than hot Instagram models, it's hot Instagram models who create a family legacy of beauty, social media stardom, and straight-up entrepreneurship. The perfect example? Isabelle and Abigail Ratchford. As most of y'all know, we write about Abigail quite a bit, but today, we're here to shine a well-deserved light on her younger sister, Isabelle! We discussed everything from her blossoming modeling career and traveling tips to her biggest turn-ons and turn-offs! Of course, it wasn't too long ago that we asked Abigail about her biggest turns-ons and turns-off, so, we went ahead and included that video, you know, for good measure!
Now, over to Isabelle! Sit back, relax, and get ready to learn about a seriously awesome lady! Being the youngest of seven children definitely taught Isabelle a thing or two about life and we can honestly say, she's quite wise beyond her years — oh, and super easy on the eyes, which doesn't hurt one bit, now does it?
FHM: So, Tell Us A Little Bit About Yourself! How Did You Get Into The Modeling Industry?
Isabelle Ratchford: "For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Isabelle Ratchford. I’m the youngest of seven children and currently a senior in college. I started modeling when I was a senior in high school and honestly, I didn’t really plan on it happening. My sister Abigail was home visiting and she had just finished doing my hair and makeup for fun and took a few pictures off her phone. The one picture she took she posted online and it went everywhere on social media. After that, my following instantly went up and my career took off quickly."
FHM: Now, Of Course, Your Sister, Abigail Ratchford, Is Also A Model! Is That Something You Guys Bonded Over Growing Up/Nowadays?
Isabelle Ratchford: "My sister and I have always been extremely close, but I definitely think modeling is something we bond over strongly now. I always go to her with advice on subjects regarding modeling and the industry and she’s always there to support me. She’s also always available to help me make certain choices that are sometimes not the easiest to make on my own. It’s truly so comforting knowing we will always have each other to count on."
FHM: You Must Travel A Lot For Your Work, Right? What's Your Favorite City? Do You Have Any Travel Hacks For Frequent Fliers?
Isabelle Ratchford: "Right now I don’t travel as much as I would like to because I’m still finishing up my senior year in college, so, I’m constantly doing school work. However, when I do travel I would have to say that New York City is my favorite place to go. I just love the high pace energy and the quality of fashion. Everything about New York speaks to its reputation as one of the greatest cities in the world. And I do have a few travel hacks that I swear by! I always roll my clothes in my suitcase in order to save space and keep organized. I definitely like to plan my outfits ahead of time that way when I get there I know what I’m wearing for each type of occasion. Also, always remember to pack the basics — like jeans, t-shirts and a jacket that goes with everything. Finally, don’t forget your sunglasses. They make you look runway ready even when you’re only running on four hours of sleep."
