InterviewsModel Profile: Meet Allie

Meet Allie, the absolutely amazing model from our new lookbook, The Girl & The Sea. She was incredibly genuine and fun to be around, plus super easy to talk to! Below we asked her a few Q’s so you could get to know her more. And, as an added bonus, we have some exclusive pics from the lookbook that you can only see on the blog! 
1. What’s your sign?
I’m a full-on LEO.
 
2. How did you get into modeling?
I started modeling as a 9 year-old, shooting catalogue for department stores. My mom sacrificed several days a week to drive me to San Francisco and sit through my shoots.
 
3. What is your favorite spring trend?
I’m into all the loud graphic prints that are recently popular. I also looove maxis. Super flattering and comfy. :)
 
4. I couldn’t live without my…
Kickboxing class! I literally look forward to it the whole week, and when the class is cancelled or there is a substitute instructor, it ruins my day.
 
5. What do you see as the next “it” thing?
I’m a big fan of cool athletic gear. I love a good track suit, and drop-crotch sweats with high-tops. Right now, most girls are afraid to dress like a guy with street style . . . but I love it, and I think it will catch on.

6. What’s your new favorite item on Lulus.com right now?
As soon as warm weather hits, I stack on the bangles. I love the “Press Play Orange Bangle Set”. Orange looks good with everything.

7.What was your favorite part/shot of the recent lookbook shoot? 
Easy! My favorite part of the shoot was towards the end of the day, when we were out on the boat, trying to get the shot on the bow . . . the whole boat was rocking back and forth like CRAZY. I was trying to stand up and look amazing, (and not look like I felt as if we were in Antarctica), while struggling to keep my balance and not fall into the water. I ended up falling down 20 times, crashing from one side to the next… but it was hilarious and I laughed the whole time. I like a challenge. ;)
 
8. What was your favorite/least favorite thing about being on The City?
Oh man… I have too many answers for this question. My favorite thing about the show was watching the edited episodes. We never had a CLUE how the scenes were actually going to end up after the editors chopped and stirred every reaction and situation. It was always a shock.  
My least favorite part would be . . . being portrayed to the world as someone I’m not. It’s annoying to be forced to act whiny, sad and upset all the time, when I was actually very happy and having fun. I remember always saying “Aw mannn do I have to act sad again?” “Do we have to fight again?”  ”Cant we do a happy, fun scene?” Then the one time I was told we were filming a “fun, girls night out” but the episode was ACTUALLY about a sad, bitter woman confronting me about being too thin. #notcool
 
9. Any advice for aspiring models?
Sure, the #1 piece of advice I will give to aspiring models is **you cannot take criticism personally. We get paid to be criticized and judged by anyone and everyone. You have to think of your image like a tool you use to make money. If your agency tells you your skin isn’t presentable- go to a dermatologist, do what you need to do to fix it. If you’re told you’re too skinny or too thick, you CAN’T let it make you depressed. Just realize your image is your tool, and you can’t let it get you down. There will ALWAYS be criticism and mean comments out there, but that’s part of the job… a BIG part of the job. xx
