From Music to Modeling: Alexandra McDermott
A few weeks ago, when I was watching the Erin Fetherston Spring 2013 Collection video, the voice behind all the pretty footage really caught my attention. I had to find out more about who it was! To my amazement, the voice was that of one of the beautiful models featured in the video. I began searching the web for more on this amazing girl, Alexandra McDermott, and found out that she is a high school student just like myself. I reached out and asked her to answer some questions for LCB Style, and luckily she said yes! Also, click over to this article on Refinery29 for more on Alexandra.
