I am known as Alex B. (or Alex Bruni), a stage name I use for modelling. I am a very experienced model represented by Grey Model Agency, with a very distinctive look, thanks to my very long and silvery white hair. Born in Italy, I have lived in London, where I am based, for most of my adult life. I am always happy to travel.
I have also posed for painters, photographers and visual artists as an art model.
Besides modelling I write. I am a published writer. Prior to embarking on modelling as a career, rather late in life, I was an academic - you can see my academic profile here. I speak several languages and have travelled extensively in Asia. My book Contemporary Indonesian Fashion. Through the Looking Glass, based on five years of research, will be published in October 2019 by Bloomsbury.
I have been involved in campaigning for a more positive representation of older women and men in the media and have worked with The Age of No Retirement who have hosted my writing on their website. I write a blog. The Real Does Not Efface Itself (title inspired by Baudrillard) and I occasionally blog for the HuffPostUK .
I have been modelling for several years internationally. The list of my credits is rather long. I have appeared on the cover of Metropolitan Magazine, in Vogue Italia online and print and in British Vogue online, in Hunger magazine and many more. I have also been seen in a number of commercials, TV and online and have had articles written about me and my modelling experience.
More about my work as a model, fashion commentator and fashion activist can be found on the News page.
I am a dancer manquée and attend dance classes whenever I can - have tried several dance forms, throughout my life, with ballet being my very favourite. I pay a lot of attention to fitness and practise Sleek barre exercises every day. I also do yoga.
