Web Candy of the Week: Alanna

It’s not every day that an up-and-coming model shows off her sweet side, but Atlanta-by-way-of-Texas model, Alanna, had a demeanor whose sweetness came easy to her. This Creole cutie talks about her Sapphic desires, her all-natural curves, and her passion for food.

On her celebrity crush…

I have a major crush on model Erica Mena from “Love & Hip Hop: NY.” Spanish women are the epitome of sexy to me first and foremost. Second, come on now, you guys have seen her, right? Body and face—crazy! She’s sexy as hell.

On who she idolizes in the industry…

There were two major things that aspired me to model: First, I remember seeing the vets like Gloria Velez and Leila Arceiri (Vivrant Thing) on TV. I just thought they were so beautiful and their bodies were crazy. Then, I was inspired by being a person who absolutely loves music and a great visual to come along with it. I just remember looking at the crazy videos that director Hype Williams directed, and saying I wanted to be a part of that. His imagination is dope!

On her all-natural curves…

Everything’s bigger in Texas. I can definitely say that saying with the measurements of 36D-28-43—all natural.

On her diverse interests…

I am a licensed cosmetologist. I am a makeup junkie who is looking to venture into esthetics in the near future, along with going back to school to major in culinary arts. I have a passion for food, and that is all credited to my mother, aunt and beautiful grandmothers. I believe that being a model is great, but being a woman who can balance that along with doing big things for herself is truly a “bad chick.”

On the pitfalls of being beautiful…

I am currently residing in Atlanta, and everyone says that they are surprised at how humble and sweet I am. Everybody thinks because you are pretty that you automatically have a shitty attitude, and you are labeled as such. —Bernadette Giacomazzo (@bgiacomazzo)
