When you take a look at Alessandra García-Lorido’s portfolio of work, you’ll find similar highlights to any other working model: high-profile campaigns (hello, Dolce & Gabbana), runway clips, and editorial tearsheets. A while ago, she might have been referred to as a plus-size model or a curve model—but in this inclusive era of body positivity and social media, it seems more accurate to refer to models as simply… models, full stop.
But as the cliché goes, Alessandra is more than a pretty face. In her photos as well as social media, her positive outlook and zest for life come through quickly. Just after she had returned to her family home in Los Angeles to quarantine, Rose Inc. spoke with Alessandra to find out how she’s keeping her spirits up, her thoughts on the fashion industry’s move toward inclusion, and the best ways to show acne-prone skin some love.
