She Says, Be the Best You Can Be

"Every woman has a different metabolism and different genetics, so rather than compete with one another, concentrate on yourself and be the best you can be. Everyone has days when they don't want to show anything. That's what the good ol' jeans and a T-shirt are for. So many times, I haven't felt ready for shoots. I'm like, why didn't I work out more? But it's life," she has said.

Whatever I do, whether I'm modeling or doing my clothing line, ále by Alessandra, I just want to feel like it's fun. If you're doing something you don't like, you're wasting time. Life is short. There is so much to see and do and feel. We should enjoy every moment," she has said.
