 How old are you?

I am 17 years old.

Where are you from?She's Nous: Alyena

Born and raised in Agoura Hills, CA.

Have you ever broken a bone?

I have always been super clumsy, and my friends have always said how I am like a giraffe on roller skates! Luckily I have actually never broken a bone though!

 What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?

Pickles! It is weird because I love cucumbers and am not a picky eater at all. I am a huge foodie, but something about pickles just makes me go ughhhh…

When you eat a pack of Skittles, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first?

I always save the best for last because in my mind I want to finish with the best flavor possible!

Who was your embarrassing 2000s celeb crush?

I would have to go with Robert Pattinson. I went through a huge faze of loving the Twilight books and movies, I was pretty obsessed.

If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?

I try to live my life being passionate about everything I do! I believe that the best way to live your life is to love what you are doing with it. Animals I am especially passionate about. Currently I am volunteer every week at the shelter and one day hope to work as an animal rights activist.

Have you overcome one of your fears?

I have always been really shy and I’ve been afraid of public situations and encounters. It’s not something I have completely overcome, but I would say it’s been a work in progress but the finish line is in sight.

She's Nous: Alyena

Which superpower would you want?

I have always been obsessed with reading books about history and the past as well as what people think the future will hold, so I would love to have the power of time travel!!

What inspires you the most?

Passionate people really inspire me because I have always loved seeing people that are dedicated to achieving a goal. It also amps me up and makes me more determined to achieve my own dreams.

Can you hula hoop?

It’s possible and I’m not to shabby at it, but I would definitely say that it is a skill I’m not eager to show off!

What’s under your bed?

Lots and lots of bags going from simple handbags to suitcases.

After seeing Free People’s latest collection, it was hard to decide which we loved more– the gorgeous intimates or Alyssa Miller’s stunning photography. Electric Love is a series of romantic and whimsical shifts, bodysuits, and vintage bra and panty sets sure to satisfy the most discerning bohemian girl, just in time for Valentine’s day. We’re over the moon over the Breaking Hearts bodysuit seen on Alyssa below, with metallic detailing and lace panelling that can be dressed up or down. Our new fave lounging outfit is sure to be the Gigi Robe thrown over their Frame Up soft bra and some Flirty Shorts for the perfect cute & comfy ensemble. Alyssa used self-portraiture to capture all of the collection’s photos, relying only on her own perspective. You can get an in-depth look at her self-portrait process, her artistic story, and how she approaches self-love in an interview with Joanna Rentz for Free People’s blog (BLDG 25), here.  Keep scrolling to see how Alyssa wears and photographs Free People!
