Ohio’s Queen, Alysa Lexi

-A +A

“It’s absolutely important to have brains along with beauty because if you’re not intelligent you will definitely get taken advantage of very easily in the entertainment industry,� Alysa cautions.

Where She’s From: Alysa Lexi was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, by two very successful parents. “I never wanted for anything as a child and had an upscale upbringing,� she tells The Black Star News. “My parents always taught me to value and appreciate what was afforded to me in life.�

Alysa graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2005, with a 3.7 grade point average. Yet, her professional modeling career had already been launched by the time she was 18. “As far as modeling, I consider myself successful because I am always being booked and as a result I do not have to work a regular nine-to-five job. I am a fulltime model,� she says. “I work when I want to work and relax when I want to. I make my own schedule.�

Where She’s At: One look at her and readers can understand why she’s the commander in chief of her domain. Although I consider myself successful, I am nowhere near retirement,� she laughs. “ I have a lot more to accomplish.�

“I see myself landing a national campaign, but an international one would even be better,� Alysa adds. Her many professional accomplishments include a national back to school campaign for TJ Max. Her first national magazine was Black Men’s. “My first international booking was in the British Virgin Islands for Jose Cuervo,� she notes. “That was probably the best booking to date because I seriously felt like a Queen out there.�

There is another accomplishment she’s proud of and strongly recommends to others in the industry. “Outside of modeling, I also own real estate in Ohio,� she says. “I bought my first property when I turned 18.�

Where She’s Heading:
“It’s absolutely important to have brains along with beauty because if you’re not intelligent you will definitely get taken advantage of very easily in the entertainment industry,� Alysa cautions. “Plus, you always want to know how to manage your own money so you don’t have to depend on someone else—when people in the industry learn how high my GPA was in high school and college I automatically have an advantage over other people. The respect level rises; they are nor dealing with your average ‘Hollywood chick.’�

How does she make sure she has the killing appearance? “The perfume that I’m currently wearing is Gucci. I wear a few shades of chanel lipstick,� she says.  Her favorite lip-gloss is MAC. She also wears MAC powder—she doesn’t wear any foundation and sometimes wears Arbonne powder, which is the only makeup the American Model Association endorses. She has many Victoria Secret lotions and body washes.

“As far as clothes, I don’t think you want me to get started, so I’ll just talk about what I wore today,� Alysa laughs. “Some chanel 4095B sunglasses, my brand new Gucci purse with belt to match. Joe jeans, Gucci boots, and I honestly don’t know who my sweater was by. When I step out the door, I like it to be like a fashion show.�

This woman has practice. In high school, she won the “Best Dressed� award. She doesn’t mind paying the extra money for high-end clothing. “They last and fit me so well,� she says. “It’s just my taste.�

“As far as acting, I’m currently in training. When I start auditioning, I don’t want casting directors to say ‘Yeah, she’s good.’ I want to knock their socks off.� Her goal is to become an A-list actor.

Alysa’s Words Of Wisdom: “Jealousy is the most pointless emotion because it makes you completely irrational.�
Alysa’s Secrets Of Success: “Where there is a will, there is a way. If you truly want and desire something, I believe you can achieve it—you just have to put your all in it and be dedicated 100 percent.�
Alysa’s Favorite All Time Three Movies: “Imitation Of Life, The Green Mile, and Friday.�
