Double edged swords are really not a problem, unless you fall on one.

In terms of global opportunities, the double edged sword of being the child of a famous and powerful person tends to be far better than being the child of one who is not.

Watching many shows that feature the children of the rich and famous who try and make their own high end way, they often remark about how they don’t want to dovetail off of their parent’s success.

Then the parent comes onto the show and what do they do?

Dovetail big time and use their parent’s celebrity as a springboard, otherwise why even mention your parent let alone feature them on your show?

Okay, who is her famous parent, hint, hint?

Have you heard of a famous person with the last name Lorido?


How about Garcia?

Guess what. Both of her parents are very successful and famous.


Are there any doves flying overhead?

Another media giant smiles, “Meet Alessandra Garcia Lorido, one of Andy Garcia’s four children, who is making headlines for all the right reasons. Alessandra is not only daughter of the Hollywood actor and his film producer wife Marivi Lorido, but she’s also a captivating plus size model. Though she’s been in the modeling industry for quite the while, it wasn’t until this week that most people discovered this hidden gem.

SLiNK Magazine, a fashion publication that targets plus size women, revealed that Alessandra is part of their 18th issue —a “beautiful Christmas editorial.” In the magazine, Alessandra poses in sexy lingerie showing off her gorgeous curves.”

First of all, looking at her made our mouths water but listening to all of these other influential media outlets worship her has driven our desire for Alessandra through the diamond roof.

We get that.

But there is more to evaluate that demonstrates her stock is soaring.

At they place in perspective how far she has come and the elite company see is with. “Over the past few years, names like Ashley Graham, Robyn Lawley and Iskra Lawrence have joined the same league as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner — a sure sign of the changing tide of the fashion industry.

The plus-size (role) model you should be prepared to see on the regular: Alessandra Garcia-Lorido. The 25-year-old had quite the busy September, walking in Christian Siriano’s groundbreaking New York Fashion Week show, starring in Lane Bryant’s confrontational campaign alongside Orange Is the New Black‘s Danielle Brooks, Empire‘s Gabourey Sidibe and Graham, and landing a spot in Wet ‘n’ Wild’s “Generations of Wild” ads with Ireland Basinger-Baldwin (daugher of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger) and Corinne Foxx (daughter of Jamie Foxx).”

So who is Christian Siriano?

At his dynamic site, he shares his story. “The Christian Siriano collection is shown each season at New York Fashion Week, and presented in New York and Paris to retailers. Known for whimsical and show-stopping design – from fantasy evening gowns and cocktail dresses to tailored sportswear, intricately detailed shoes and accessories – the collection can be found at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other department stores and specialty boutiques around the globe. In 2012 the first flagship Christian Siriano store opened on Elizabeth Street in New York City, and in 2013 he was inducted as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

Dubbed “the new king of old-school glamour” by Elle and “the next billion-dollar designer” by Yahoo! Style, his designs have appeared on the world’s biggest stars and most prestigious red carpets.

In addition to First Lady Michelle Obama, he counts entertainment’s leading ladies as his clients, from stars of film (Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Shailene Woodley, Patricia Arquette, Emily Blunt, Sharon Stone) to icons of music (Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Carrie Underwood) to stars of television (Kerry Washington, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tina Fey, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Christina Hendricks, Heidi Klum, Oprah Winfrey, Edie Falco) and darlings of fashion (Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung, Dita Von Teese, Kate Upton, Ashley Graham, Coco Rocha), to name just a few.”

We will keep watching her progress.

As she stated so wonderfully herself in an interview with ET Magazine, “I hope women of all sizes feel empowered, because it is sort of celebrating a different body type but also showing that you can be sexy and confident in your own skin.”
