For anyone dreaming of cracking the fashion industry, Ellen Alexander is the one to look up to. Her signature look? Blonde waves and a bold red lip. Sounds familiar? Not surprising, she has graced the print and digital covers of some of your favorite publications. And she won’t stop there!
Having been a model since a young age, she has been the star of commercial shoots as well as on the cover of some of the biggest fashion publications in the world. Her success in the fashion industry seems worlds away from her childhood in a strict Russian family. Since her move away from her native country of Russia, she has worked all over the world, from London to New York.
As her fame soars, it’s important to stay authentic. The key to her success? Self-discipline. The best advice she has ever received, and the advice she would give to her younger self, would be to be more self-disciplined. Being a model involves having a grueling regime to make sure you look your best 24/7. She gives herself a hard workout, running across the desert, and eating healthily to ensure she looks amazing. This hard work has made her the face of women’s press and fashion publications such as Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire in her home country of Russia but also Stateside.
