Coming from Italian blood, StarCentral Magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Month for July 2013 Alek Murro is no newbie when it comes to the fashion world. Growing up in Italy, one of the fashion capitals of the world, Alek was constantly surrounded by fashion and style and kept a close eye on the major runways. Now, the 24-year-old stud is following his dreams of being a model with CSA Models in Perth, Australia.
However, things are not always as they appear, especially in the world of modelling.
“Now that I am part of the scene, I have noticed that it is different in many ways. For example, in Europe, the models are more about face and having that tall, thin look, whereas here in Perth, it’s more about body, fitness and a complete look. It can be hard at times but it’s also easy and fun to be a part of runways, photography, magazines, castings etc,” Alek says.
The ultimate dream for this Italian stallion? To be a part of the big labels like Armani and the runway shows in Milan, Paris and London, and cause a ruckus in the USA.
With chiseled abs and largely defined muscles, Alek is strict on himself when it comes to dieting and exercise.
“I work out regularly, I follow a diet of low carbs and high protein during my definition cycle, not forgetting to eat healthy foods, sleep well, focus on my workout time and lead an active and positive life.”
Alek’s mantra in keeping motivated and making progress within the modelling world is “sacrifice, motivation, control, belief and dedication.” With his driving force and tenacious abilities, we’re sure Alek will excel in achieving his goals and dreams.
When asked about the highs of being a model, Alek says they are in the opportunities of travelling and working with major labels. However, it isn’t all glitz and glam, as Alek confirms a model’s career never lasts a lifetime.
“Once you reach that certain crossroad, your career slows down. There is always someone younger, better and hungry to take your place!”
When it comes to relationships, Alek isn’t fazed whether he ends up dating a model or…a non-model.
“It does not matter if they are from the same industry or not. If you have the right connection, then just enjoy the life together.”
A man of many talents, Alek might be known as a model but he is also a professional chef, fitness trainer, motorbike rider and claims he is a good housekeeper – quite the catch!
“I enjoy life, I experience things, I constantly try to improve myself and my career. I keep a strong bond with my family and friends in Italy and at CSA and above all, I am an easy, friendly kinda guy.” So, you can see why he’s Star Central Magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Month for July 2013!
