IAmTheUjENAWoman: Gabrielle 

“A bikini can always be smaller.”


Hello to all of you, my name is Gabrielle Gianninoto, I am 25, currently living in Miami but from a small town in Maryland, where I always was intrigued by the unknown, especially culturally speaking. I have lived and traveled extensively in other countries, mostly Latin America and most recently the Middle East. My favorite country is Brazil, where I discovered I am a true Brazilian at heart. Hence why I like to say, “A bikini can always be smaller.” I am a mix of Sicilian,Cuban, Irish and German.

How long have you modeled with and without UjENA?

I started modeling about 2 years ago, when my photographer and now friend, Ted Mebane, said he must shoot me and my big hair! March 2015 was the first time, and hopefully not the last, that I modeled for UjENA.

How do you stay Healthy/Fit?

To stay healthy I definitely focus on clean eating and listening to what my body needs; then providing it with those things, whether it be certain foods and nutrients or just a stretch here or there. I am lucky enough to live in Miami where it is always beautiful so I walk, bike ride, swim, etc, to get small exercises in daily.

sheer stripes gabbieWhere is your favorite place to model?

I would have to say anywhere that has the blue ocean and white sand. I love being on the beach.

What is your Favorite UjENA Bikini?

I am absolutely obsessed with the Sheer Stripes Double Dip that I recently modeled. It makes me fell sexy and exposed, but at the same time, covers me up enough to keep it classy.

What would you like to say in Closing?

In closing, I would like to say that I feel very lucky to work with UjENA Swimwear. I felt beautiful and sexy in every swimsuit, as they are made to accentuate the beauty of a womans body, while still maintaing a classy femininity. This shoot brought out a side of me that I have yet to see and I can’t wait for another opportunity.
