'Lucy Victoria Collett' (born 3 March 1989[1][2]), also known as Lucy V and Lucy Vixen,[3] is a glamour model. She won The Sun newspaper's Page 3 Idol 2012 modeling contest, and she appears as a Page 3 girl in that newspaper. She also features regularly in British men's magazines. In May 2013, FHM magazine named her one of its 100 Sexiest Women in the World.[4]

Modeling career[edit]

Collett began her modeling career at age 17 as a hair model for Toni & Guy salons.[5] At this time, she began dying her naturally brown hair blond, and later her signature red color.[5] In December 2011, at the age of 22, she was declared the winner of The Sun's Page 3 Idol 2012 competition and became a Page 3 girl.[6][7] She now features regularly in men's magazines, including Loaded, FHM, Zoo, Nuts, Front and Maxim.[3] She appeared in the music video for Professor Green's song "Remedy".[8]

Collett is a dress size 12–14 (UK) and wears a size 30G bra.[5][9] FHM has called her part of a "welcome new trend for curvaceous womanliness."[8] Her voluptuous figure and red hair have drawn comparisons with actress Christina Hendricks and cartoon sex symbol Jessica Rabbit.[10] The Sun has sent Collett onto the streets of London dressed as Joan Holloway, Hendricks's character in Mad Men, to gauge men's reaction.[10] Collett has said that she wants to "send out the message that you don’t have to be a size six to be a model"[6] and that she wants to promote a healthy body image for girls and women.[11]

In May 2013, she was named one of FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World, placing 89th on the list.[4]

Background and personal life[edit]

Collett's father is a property developer, and her mother is a chiropodist.[5] She is the youngest of 4 children.[5] Her parents divorced when she was 4 years old, after which she lived with her mother.[5] She attended Myton School in Warwick.[11]

On 19 May 2005, her 17-year-old brother Jacob was assaulted by another teenager following an altercation outside a pub in Leamington.[12] He suffered a brain haemorrhage and died in Warwick Hospital around 1 AM on 20 May 2005. His assailant was subsequently convicted of manslaughter and received a 6-year prison sentence.[13][14] Her brother's death caused Lucy to suffer from a year-long depression and engage in incidents of self-harming.[5] She credits an interest in photography, which she studied for her A-levels, with giving her the ability to overcome her grief and depression and rebuild her life.[5]

Before becoming a full-time professional model, she worked for six years as a waitress at Warwick Castle.[11]
