Italian model Alessandra Bosco has been in the spotlight lately for creating a lingerie military calendar for the troops to enjoy. In this exclusive interview, she tells us about the controversial calendar, called “Weapon of Mass Distraction” and more!
Citynet Magazine: Where are you from/live now?
I was born and raised in Verona, Italy but I am currently in Germany.
How did you get into modeling?
My aunt, who used to be a photographer, started using me as her muse during my childhood to present images to agencies in Milan.
What is it about modeling that excites you?
It allows you to express yourself, your moods, your sexuality and communicate with the public even only through a picture.
Favorite type of modeling?
Swimsuit, lingerie, commercial.
What do you think is your sexiest body part?
My eyes because they’re very expressive and seductive and of course the rest of my body because it is all 100% au naturel and today it is a rarety.
How did you think of the idea of a calendar for the troops abroad?
I was receiving many requests from them stating they wanted to see me in military gear. I’m also looking into donating some proceeds to familes of the fallen.
What type of photos should people expect to find?
Glamour, sexy images.
For whom is the calendar intended?
Male soldiers and everyone who appreciates tasteful glamour images.
Who was the photographer?
Alberto Magliozzi, famed photographer from Rome, Italy.
Where did you get the military clothing?
Some purchased, some military accessories were borrowed.
How has the calendar controversy affected you?
It has been stressful but expected. It only motivated me more to always go after my goals!
In what ways has it been stressful?
Taking care of advertising solutions, marketing, heavy attention from the press, jealous military spouses who are scared of their husbands falling on my door step… that alone has been quite funny entertainment!
What are your personal thoughts about the issue?
There is therapy available for those military spouses who are insecure with themselves and with their relationships and that are threatened by this calendar or me. [Editor’s note: Ouch!].
Any personal military connections?
My husband is in the Army.
What do you want the world to know about you?
I am an ambitious woman with beauty and lots of brains.
What’s the most common question that people ask you?
They ask if my long eye lashes are real and yes, they are!
What do you do in your downtime?
I wish I had some of that lately. When I do I enjoy shopping, watching horror movies, spend time with family, and exercising.
What do you prefer to wear when just hanging out and watching TV?
It depends, shorts and a top or just in lingerie.
Give a shout out to your fans.
Thank you for your support and for taking interest in my modeling career. I hope you will enjoy the calendar.
Favorite upcoming projects?
More commercial work including being the spokesperson for a beer company.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
You’ll just have to find out.
