Hey, Alexandra, tell us a bit about yourself.
Well, I’m a 21-year-old from Sacramento, California currently residing in Los Angeles. I’ve also lived in New York, which was an amazing experience, but I will always be a California girl. I’ve been modelling since I was 16 and began doing it full time once I had graduated from high school.
What did you enjoyed most about this shoot?
It was amazing! My first shoot as a blonde — naturally, I am a brunette but the day before this shoot I dyed it blonde. I was so nervous to see how my hair would turn out but Marc and the whole team did an amazing job and I totally left feeling excited. We shot it in the sand dunes in Arizona, it was such a fun couple of days, and my favourite part had to be driving the dune buggies around the sand dunes.
Well, you look gorgeous. What’s your best asset?
My eyes. I have huge, blue eyes.
What do you love and hate about your job?
I love all the new people I am constantly meeting but hate how there is no definite schedule — it makes it so hard to plan anything.
If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing?
Well, if you asked me this before I started modelling, I would have said I’d be a teacher. But now, after all these amazing experiences I have had all these years in modelling, I’m not quite sure what I want to do for the rest of my life. I just decided to go back to college and it has been so much work yet exciting. I take all online classes, so when I’m not working I’m glued to my computer.
How do you relax?
I get my nails done or just lay on the beach. I also love cuddling with my dog and binge watching Netflix.
This is a sexy swimwear shoot. Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction at the beach?
I’ve had my bikini bottoms fall off while I was wakeboarding. Safe to say I fell down immediately!
When was the last time you skinny-dipped?
This summer. I also tend to walk around my house naked a little too often!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I love California, and don’t think I could live anywhere else, but I would love to live in Greece for a bit.
Have you ever been to Australia?
No, but I am dying to go!
What’s the first thing you think about when you hear the word ‘Australia’?
Kangaroos. I can’t say there’s a lot I know about Australia.
If you took MAXIM on a date, where would we go?
I think we would have to go to Australia don’t you think?
Of course. Would you kiss a guy on the first date?
Yes I would. Gotta know if there is chemistry!
Describe your perfect date?
FOOD! I love me a good meal. And the date would end with a nice walk on the beach with some wine.
What’s the best way for a man to win his way to your heart?
Be kind to others. Nothing makes my heart melt more. I also find confidence but not cockiness, very sexy in a guy.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
This career has been a wild ride so who knows what is next for me. But, I do know that in five years I’d like to be in law school.
