This is Melania’s 2nd feature as a Pipe Babe. She is smoking an Adam Davidson pipe from Kevin Godbee’s collection. The pipe is a 2013 Military Mount Billiard with Silver Band. Melania is a 22-year old student, a professional ballroom dancer and last year held the title of Queen of the National Floral Games of Mexico, which is a poetry contest held in one of the most important oil hubs in Mexico. She has won several international dance competitions. Born in Mexico and raised overseas, she is truly a third culture kid. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Mandarin-Chinese, reflecting her formation as a child. She is currently pursuing her degree in Oil and Gas Accounting.
This shoot was done at Central Cigars in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, a full liquor and cigar bar with several name brand cigars and their own house blends as well. It is attached to Ruby’s Elixir which is a great Jazz & Blues club. Smoking is permitted not only in the cigar lounge, but in the jazz club as well. Photos by Barry Lively of B. Lively Images.
