Meet the Model: Alexandra Tyler

For our first model interview we're catching up with Alexandra Tyler. Alex is a beauty inside and out. I can't tell you how many times her penchant for sharing Rumi quotes has brightened my day, and her images have kept me inspired and running to the gym. If you don't know her already then I am very pleased to introduce you - so, without further ado... Alex!

How did you get started with modeling?
When I was 15 my mom took me to the San Francisco Ford office and we got a contract.

Has your opinion of this job shifted over time?
Yes!!!!! Getting the contract was the easy part! I think we all thought that the contract was the road to stardom. Ha! There is so much more to the job.

Photographers tend to ask models what music they want to listen to while shooting, any current favorites?
House music, like Dubstep.

What do you do to stay in shape?
A healthy lifestyle... diet and exercise. Lots of running, spin, yoga. I like to mix it up.

Models have to travel constantly, what must-have items always make it into your suitcase?
A blowdryer and straightening iron - my hair can be out of control without them. I pack black clothing to keep things simple. Nude undergarments!!!

Have you always loved fashion?
Yes! I'm a girly girl that loves beautiful clothing.

Bad days inevitably happen, how do you cope?
I get in bed with a chai tea, watch Netflix - that always cures the worst of days for me.

What's your favorite snack?
Apples and peanut butter.

What do you love to do when you're not at work?
Watch Netflix :)

Any advice for newbies?
Learn the science to your body and keep it in model shape. Shortcuts don't work. Always, always improve yourself. Keep updated with the top models, magazines, and fashion.

Thanks Alex!

Alex is signed with Scout Models & Talent in San Francisco, Photogenics in Los Angeles, and Fenton Moon in New York.
