Montenegrin-born bombshell and Elite Management model Lena Radonjic is heating up the Magic City modeling scene, one steamy shoot (and selfie) at a time.
You have a significant following on Instagram. How has social media affected your career?
In the beginning, I had no fun using [Instagram], but now, it’s like my portfolio. I’m creating a certain look for my page and am always thinking what my next post will be.
You’ve worked with major brands like Revolve, Luxe Cartel, and Beach Bunny Swimwear. What’s the best part of being a model?
Traveling. I love to experience new cultures and try new food.
I work out because it makes me feel good, and I love to do it in the morning because it gives me energy for the day. I need to be pushed, so I combine Pilates and personal training at Anatomy at 1220 (1220 20th St., Miami Beach, 786-213-1220; anatomyat1220.com).
I like the vibe there.
I’m the biggest foodie ever! I can’t say no to pizza and ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s is the way to go—i’ll get a whole pint for myself!
Who inspires you?
I look up to so many beautiful and successful people, but my biggest inspiration is my family. I’m very close to my younger brothers. When I’m feeling stressed or down, I always call them.
You’ve accomplished so much at just 20 years old. Any advice to aspiring models?
Work on your body and your spirit. You need to have more to offer than just your looks; it’s very important to have a great personality.
“Instagram is like my portfolio,” says Magic City model Lena Radonjić, who is equally at home on the sands of South Beach as she is in front of a camera.
