We catch up with new face at Profile Models, Alexandra, and talk about evenings in Paris, painting and dolphins.

So, tell us where were you scouted?
In Russia, Novosibirsk. There was an American scout from Elite NY. They signed me straight away.
Have you ever had any model mishaps?
No, not really.
Very professional! We’ve been looking at your Instagram snaps from Paris! Where’s your favourite place to go when you’re there?
When it gets dark I love to walk on the Champs-Elysées , otherwise parks or some old French streets.
You’ve got lots of adorable animal pics too, if you were an animal, which animal would you be?
A dolphin. I think. They are most intelligent and kind animals.
We’ve seen your apple painting too, who are your favourite artists?
So you play the piano too?! You’re super-creative. Would you be a musician if you weren’t a model?
I start playing piano when I was 7 but I never wanted to be a musician. To be honest my dream was to become a singer. Now I can spend hours practicing the piano. I can’t live without music.
Has there ever been a piece of clothing you’ve worn that you wished you could take home with you?
Always. LOL. Every single photo shoot there are some clothes that I would love to have in my closet.
