Autostraddle Calendar Girls: Avni is Miss July

It’s July: the month we celebrate America’s independence from England by blowing things up and eating hot dogs with our families! What better way to celebrate our own negative feelings towards our country than to ogle a hot British chick and talk about ab definition? Miss July’s gonna set off sparklers in your pants! Hey-o!

Firstly, a little refresh of the Calendar Girl concept for any newbies:

We just think Maxim, COED and Playboy shouldn’t get to corner the market on “monthly devotions to very very good looking women.” We know lots of hot lesbians who also look good casually lounging on bedsheets and hanging out at the pool/on the couch.

Each month our photographer Robin will shoot a Le Cadeau by Robin set (as featured on WeTV) with one beautiful, talented, smart, interesting and sexy lesbian lady. At the end of the year, we’ll have a pretty kickass calendar that you can buy for 2011, which is our last year on earth before the apocalypse. Don’t you want to keep track of that in style?

Missed a month, or need an repeat performance?
We made this page of our 2011 Calendar Girls

This month’s Autostraddle Calendar Girl is:


Miss July

From Photographer Robin Roemer:

“Avni was such a joy to work with! We knew we’d all get along from the moment she rolled in with her huge bag of shoes and a big smile on her face. Avni is originally from England so I’m glad Sara found a cute pair of Calvins to help her represent. We are happy to present a hot Miss July who has both style and smarts. Thanks to our make-up artist Christina and our stylist Sara for their talented work yet again! And thanks to Avni for being a sweetheart and such a natural in front of the camera.”

Avni was born & raised in England, where her parents moved from India while in their teens. At 15, she came to New York for the first time and fell in la-la-la-la-love with it and now thurrr she is! This super-smartie model has two BA honors and a Masters Degree in Art/Surface and Interior Design. Friend her on facebook now!

You know what’s even superstrongsexier about Avni? She’s a serious fighter currently undergoing treatment for stomach cancer, which is incredibly rare amongst women under 30. “I don’t want pity and I hate sympathy looks, but I feel like I need to prove that I can do this and look good and healthy at the same time,” Avni told us that she’s only recently started to feel comfortable talking about her fight against cancer. She’s doing this without health insurance, too, which, as you can imagine, is not exactly a picnic. Actually it’s sort of been the exact opposite of a picnic, except worse?

You’re probably thinking, What can I do to help this brave, beautiful person?, because that’s what we were thinking. Well for starters, she’s looking to throw a fundraiser in New York at the end of the month, so if you have insight or ideas or event-planning know-how or any kind of support, friend Avni on facebook and drop her a line!

And don’t worry — it’s still ok to lustily objectify Avni’s hot, sexy body. I mean it! You guys had better not turn these comments into a politically correct buffet of sadness. But we know you all have a lot of feelings…

  1. Um… wow.
    so. many. feelings.
    HOT. The Celestine Prophecy. I didn’t remember how much I loved that book.
    Calvin Klein underwear.

  2. I think if I hear her speak, I’m done for/melting into a pool of feelings. Damn, she’s hotter than curry fa sho’.

    • <3 i just read the do's and donts on how to get girls…so simply ( not so simple for me as im so pathecially shy) I'm putting myself out there and saying YOU ARE CUTE!

  3. Avni, you are literally my perfect girl. British but of Indian descent, politically/culturally aware, and tattooed (I also have a Ganesh tattoo, an om tattoo and some sanskrit (ahimsa) tattooed on my forearm)! The only way you could be more perfect is if you wore glasses.
    PS- register the email address that you use to comment at and add a profile pic that way :)

    • i have glasses too:P My tatts all have deep meaning are will always be in my life…they all tell a story and that made me what i am today:)
      Ok Im taking ur advice and hopping this will work…im on natural herbs if u know aht i mean…

  7. greetings,
    i came across “you” thanks to autostraddle. reading your story coupled with your salacious pics, this was the vocal response to my screen:
    (thats jibberish for) dayummm you are beyond what words can say..


    • WOWZA!!! July just got HHHHOTTER!! This beauty has the entire package, smarts, intelligence, looks, compassion yet fierce. She’s sincere and brave and refuses to conform. Watch this chick, she is going to go to great places. A heart of Gold and a survivor of cancer. Keep it up! Women power! xx

  8. My mind was just blown by the concept of auto-autostraddling.
    And by that white tank top shot.

  9. I think it is really disturbing that people have nothing better to do with their time than leave mean and inappropriate comments. Avni has inner beauty as well as out and doesn’t deserve this. Lets try to be supportive and show some class ladies.

  13. I thought Anvi was stunning from the moment I saw her. It’s just taken me this long to comment! (all this time to get my breath back)

    I’m living in London at the moment (but I’m a kiwi at heart)and I want a British girl like this to walk into my life! She’s so alluring.

  14. When you see a beautiful passionate fighter wrapped up in caramel color skin you’ve seen Avni and you may want to make a wish, a wish that when you face adversity you can come out the other side with a personality and beauty as stunning as a rainbow after a rainy day. Thank you for inspiring me.

  15. Beautiful pictures. very sexy. I love them all. my favorite was the one in front of the window with the boots. HOT!
