The seventh installment of our ongoing series Meet the Muse stars London native Alex Rose. Having recently appeared as in the summer blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, our shoot with Alex took place in the city’s South East and was done by German photographer Ansgar Sollman. Around the local sites, Alex is seen in pieces from celebrated streetwear stalwarts like Supreme and Daily Paper, alongside up-and-comers like Palladium Boots.

To give you more insight into Alex’s day-to-day, we asked her 10 questions – both relevant and random – in order to get to know a little bit more about her, and really Meet the Muse. See what she had to say below, then go peep our previous installment featuring Emily Ruhl by Rupert Lamontagne.

Your first thought each morning?


Your ideal Saturday night?

A large table and a good meal with friends, wine and conversations about life.

Your no.1 album?

This is a tough one – it’s a constant battle between Rumours by Fleetwood Mac and Graceland by Paul Simon. I don’t think I need to explain either of these choices.

Your life ambition?

I want to be in and around film for the rest of my life. I don’t care if I’m holding cables or have my own trailer – I just am in love with that world and need to be in it.

Your childhood hero?

My mama! She is my father, my mother and my best friend, and taught me everything I know. She’s definitely the only hero I will ever need.

Yourself in one sentence?

Cigarettes and Chanel. Does that count as a sentence?

Your own personal motto?

Worse things happen to better people.

Your favorite wardrobe item?

It’s got to be my Dr. Martens, I’ve had the same pair since I was 15 and they’ve been with me everywhere. They’re one size too big and have half the laces missing but I will always love them.

Your most treasured possession?

I have a little book that I’ve been writing in for almost 10 years, I think if I lost that I would lose a very big part of me.

Your best piece of advice?

Don’t think about the future too much, but don’t think about it too little either.
