Alexandra Robertson from Blackpool and her 47" legs.
Many women may dream of having legs that go on forever. For Alexandra Robertson, however, it’s no dream – it’s reality.
With her astonishing 47in pins, the British model is helping the nation inch ahead in the battle of the long-limbed beauties.
Miss Robertson, 20, decided to find out how she measured up after Russian trainee lawyer Anastasia Strashevskaya scooped her nation’s Miss Longest Legs, with a seemingly unbeatable 42in.
And she was amazed to find out that hers were a full five inches longer.
Miss Robertson, who stands a statuesque 6ft 1in and is juggling a musical theatre degree with work as a model, said: ‘It is crazy – I had no idea my legs were quite that long.’
It is not only her perfect pins that will make her the envy of women everywhere. She is also a 34 DD and wears size 10 dresses.
Miss Robertson, from Blackpool, began her modelling career at 18, when she entered a competition in her home city. She was spotted by a local agency and has gone on to model bridal wear and lingerie.
She said: ‘I do get some stares and I suppose I do intimidate men sometimes, especially in my high heels, but it’s not intentional. I often hear things like “do you play basketball?” but I just turn around and reply “no, do you play mini-golf?” and we end up having a laugh.’
Fortunately Miss Robertson’s height doesn’t intimidate her boyfriend of two years, Laurson Moston, 21.
At 6ft, he is only an inch shorter than her. ‘He doesn’t mind my height at all,’ she said. ‘He did ban me from wearing really high heels when I’m with him, though, because I tower over him then.’
Being tall is something of a family trait. Miss Robertson’s sister Lorna Rycroft, 33, is the same height as her.
But it also has its pitfalls. Miss Robertson said: ‘Getting clothes to fit, especially fashion clothes, is a bit of a nightmare.’
