Photos of New Yorker Alesandra Nicole have been circling in heavy rotation across the Internet mostly due to some hot pictures by Are Bernard. So who is this girl?
23 year old Alesandra is in love with life and sure isn't afraid to live it. Originally studying childhood education, a neck tattooed later, Alesandra opted for a different career direction shall we say. Day Job? Let's just say Alesandra's job is a little more suited to night time.
Alesandra's passion and number one hobby is music. She's been singing for as long as she can remember and can't imagine life without it.
"I'm always the girl in the kitchen singing ballads at house parties. I'd love to be the first tiny tattooed white girl signed to young money... what? can i dream?!"
"Any females you look up to? My mom, she's so giving & talented & hilarious. I love any woman with a big in-your-face attitude. I don't obsess over celebrity, but like any 22-23 yr old girly girl, I'm goo goo for GaGa!"
Like most girls Alesandra loves hanging with the girls and having marathons of cheesy reality TV shows and enjoying the NYC nightlife. And if you are really lucky you may spot her on a faraway beach adventure sometime.
The one line Alesandra lives by - STAY POSI!
Alesandra is in every sense, a free bird. Beautiful, positive, vibrant and strong.

"The Dark Night of the Soul," the six-minute animated short created by Mouris, illustrates — literally — the singer's evolution from kooky poster child of grunge to classy Birkin bag carrier. In just half a year and on a budget of five thousand dollars, Mouris' animated portrayal of Love is spot on, down to the visuals and the madcap personality. Vocals from her latest album, "Nobody's Daughter," echo in the background and all locations are accurate, but the spoof wouldn't be complete without "cameos" from Lagerfeld and Andre Leon Talley. "I don't know if Karl has seen this," Love said, "But it's about him in so many ways."

“Neil Krug’s stylized photos of his girlfriend [now wife], the model Joni Harbeck, were taken with Polaroid film years past its sell-by date. They have the kind of grainy, sun-scorched feel of a Sergio Leone spaghetti western. And ever since the couple began posting the photos on Flickr early this year, they’ve drawn a blaze of attention.” - The New York Times.
