With spreads in Vogue and Seven­teen and weekly shoots for Blush Bou­tique, Elite model and bona fide It girl Rachel Ser­rano slays the Magic City mod­el­ing scene.

If you weren’t a model...

I’d be do­ing some­thing else cre­ative. Maybe I’d be a wed­ding plan­ner or a kinder­garten teacher.

Fa­vorite work­out?

Jet­set Pi­lates! (4203 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Co­ral Gables, 305209-1007; jet­set­pi­lates.com)

I al­ways strug­gled with fit­ness, but as soon as I went to Jet­set, I saw re­sults right away. I sweat more than at the gym!

How has so­cial me­dia im­pacted your ca­reer?

In­sta­gram is like my port­fo­lio. Some­times I have clients say, “I booked you be­cause of the way you look in this video you posted.”

Do you feel re­spon­si­ble for set­ting a pos­i­tive ex­am­ple for your fol­low­ers?

I like to fol­low mod­els who eat healthy, work out, and have a good vibe, so I like to give off that same thing. I don’t want it to seem fake; I’m a real per­son.

Go-to place for a night out?

I’m a big fan of Base­ment Mi­ami

(2901 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 786-641-7119; base­ment mi­ami.com). I think it’s cool how they have the bowl­ing al­ley, iceskat­ing rink, and club all in one. I also love Soho Beach House

(4385 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 786-507-7900, so­hobeach house.com). That’s kind of my thing; it’s a good day-drink­ing spot.

Ad­vice to as­pir­ing mod­els?

Take care of your body and skin and love your­self!

Mi­ami’s Rachel Ser­rano has been work­ing in the rar­efied world of top mod­els since she was a teenager, but she tries to main­tain a grounded, pos­i­tive vibe. “f don’t want it to seem fake,” she says. “f’m a real per­son.”
