Victoria's Secret Fashion Show's fiery redhead

Nov 24, 2017

November 20, Shanghai played host to the world's sexiest fashion show starring around 50 internationally renowned models, including newcomers and experienced Angels. British model Alexina Graham, a L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador and the first redhead to appear in the famous show, walked the Victoria's' Secret runway this year alongside Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Taylor Hill. So who is Alexina Graham?

Early days
Now age 26, Alexina Graham broke though onto the modeling scene after being crowned one of the winners of the 2008 Ford modeling competition. She then signed to the prestigious Elite agency, which helped her get noticed by the biggest designers and fashion houses. From 2009, the model and her luscious locks were soon being picked for various magazine shoots.

Social media presence
The model has an unverified Twitter account but is mainly present on Instagram (@alexinagraham). Although far from the 84.6 million users following Kendall Jenner on the famous social network, Alexina Graham has over 110,000 followers, a number set to rise even further come November 28, when the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show screens on CBS. Place your bets now.

Shows and campaigns
With a rather unique look in the modeling world, an ultra-sexy attitude, perfect curves and a great sense of humor, the British model has everything it takes to win over brands and designers. Alexina Graham got her big break in 2009 when she was picked for a Burberry campaign, followed by campaigns for Sportmax and Brooks Brothers. She also walks catwalks all around the world, and is a runway regular for Jean Paul Gaultier, as well as Etam, and more recently for Balmain. Olivier Rousteing even picked Alexina Graham for the fall/winter 2017 Balmain campaign. Plus, the model scored big in October 2016 when she was named a L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador.

Alexina Graham and Victoria's Secret
The 26-year-old model walked her first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year. She was also the first redhead to star in the catwalk spectacular. For several weeks, Alexina Graham has been sharing snaps from her intense workouts on Instagram. The model called the experience "a big dream come true" on social media.
