How were you discovered?
I was discovered in a small resort town called Pärnu at their annual grill festival. My mouth was literally full of meat with ketchup when a lady came up to me and asked if I was ever interested in being a model. 

What has been your proudest moment so far in your modeling career?
It’s hard to pick just one but I think seeing all my campaigns on billboards. Once my mum sent me a photo of my brother at an airport posing next to my Gucci poster. She told me he was so happy to see me that he didn’t want to leave. I think it makes me proud when my family sees me even when I am not with them, so in a way I’m still around if that makes sense. And of course walking Prada and Proenza Schouler (my favorite shows) are the highlights of my show seasons.

What is one thing no one would ever guess about you?
I’m extremely competitive. As a child, I had to win every competition, even now I want to do my best at everything I do. Also, I really enjoy being in the wild (camping in the woods, staying at tree houses, diving in caves, doing sup board trips on rivers or seas and so on) and I have a photographic memory. 

What is one thing you would like to do next?
There are a lot of things I want to do next. One thing is that I would love to start directing editorial type of videos with my own vision and message when I am older. I already have done some on my own but as a job besides modeling maybe in 10 years. That would be my dream. Also a random thing is that I really want to run the New York marathon!

  1. It’s really nice to hear models talking about the positive sides of their jobs. Alexandra has clearly had some amazing experiences and is going to use those to continue climbing the ladder of her career. It’s lovely to hear.

  2. Samuel says:

    Seriously one of the most beautiful faces to emerge this decade! Those cheekbones are sooo perfect, sharp and nicely positioned and she’s also got such a fierce strut with her thin yet strong body (and with some curves on top)
