Our Model of the Month is Alexandra Abercrombie. She is taking the modeling world by storm! We had a chance to catch up with her during her busy schedule of go-see and casting calls:
1) Who is Alexandra Abercrombie?
I'm a girl that has big dreams. A girl that realizes that nothing comes easy and is willing to do the work to achieve my goals. I am also a typical teenager that enjoys being with my friends and my family. I just graduated from High School and moved to Los Angeles a month ago. This allows me to be available to go on castings and work on a daily basis.
2) Why this choice to become model?
Since I was a little girl I'd always get stopped in grocery stores, the mall, wherever I was at and asked if I was a model. So finally when I was 16, my mom took me into an open-call in an agency and that is where it all started. Plus it helped that I grew tall as the years went on:)
3) Typical day in the life of a model:
Not as glamorous as you might think. But typically lots of castings, lots of driving around to get to them at specific times to be seen for 5 mins. But..to get the job is amazing! Hair and make-up for about 2 hours and then the shooting begins. So much fun but also hard work!
4) Your best memory in front the lens:
Shooting with photographer Jack Guy, he is very experienced so in that little time frame I learned so much. How to best hold my body, face for the best pictures. He was also a model so he was extremely helpful.
5) Do you have some models for inspiration?
So many amazing models in the world. All inspirations to me. I feel like a sponge sometimes. Always looking at pictures that inspire me and always wanting to better myself. I think at this moment the model that stands out in my mind is Natalia Vodianova. I get lost in the expression in her eyes. So beautiful!
6) With what photographer do you dream to work?
Russell James, Mario Testino, Paolo Roversi and I'm always discovering amazing photographers on a daily basis…but you said to dream right?
7) How do you see your future?
I see myself getting smarter with a college education so I can be successful in whatever path God has for me. I do want to continue modeling as long as clients are still interested in me. I also want to act so I'm working on positioning myself for this. Modeling takes hard work as well as a little bit of luck in being in the right place at the right time.So I will do my part and work hard and keep my fingers crossed for luck.
8) Where do you want to work in the future, for you where is the most important place for fashion?
I have so many dream jobs but I can't help to look at the windows of stores like Guess and Victoria Secret. Guess models are similar to the way I look so a Guess campaign would be a dream come true! New York City, Paris, Milan are the places I hope to work!
9) Name a few modeling jobs that you have worked?
I'm a new model with only having exactly one year of experience.I've shot for so many local designers but big names that you would recognize is Nike, BeBe, ESPN, Mac Cosmetics. All the jobs are so different and whether they are big names or not they all are so much fun and teach me so much.
