Alex LaRosa is our Laner of the Week! Alex (short for Alexandra) moved to New York to pursue modeling. Originally from Los Angeles, Alex came a long way for her career. Alex loves New York and feels that moving here was the best decision she’s ever made. LaRosa is a professional model, blogger and body positive activist. Her confidence is radiant and compliments her infectious laugh. She’s a big proponent of self love and care.
Alex’s favorite Mustard Lane gig was working for Lavazza Coffee at the US Open. Lots of free coffee and Serena Williams! How could it get any better? She’s been on the lane for 6 months and loves working with other Laners, “I love that I get to work with an amazing, intelligent, fun, and diverse group of people!” We love you too, Alex!!
Fun facts: Alex is Italian and craves her grandma’s spaghetti. At a party, she’s the person upstairs trying to find the cat.
