The Memphis Flyer’s 2013 Hotties are ready for their close-ups.

The middle three letters in the word "photo" spell "H-O-T." And hotness is what you'll find in the Flyer's annual roundup of the Bluff City's hottest men and women. Our hard-hitting reporters took time off from chasing down politicians and poring over police reports to narrow down 100 or so reader-submitted hotties to these final 14. Yes, we have tough jobs, but somebody has to do it. Since their pictures are so hot, we went with a photo-themed spread giving you not only a look at some smokin' hot people but also a behind-the-scenes look into a photo shoot. Special thanks goes out to Phil Woodard from Woodard Properties for allowing us to set up a makeshift studio inside the Calliope Room at 456 Tennessee Street downtown. (The room is available for party, event, and studio space rentals at philwoodard.com.)
Editor's Note: As we've done for the past several years, we're raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Memphis by voting for King and Queen Hottie. Each vote costs $5 and goes directly to this great charity. Voting runs through midnight on February 20th. 


Alexandra Nicole Rushing
26 • Owner of Ivory Closet boutique and Adel Amor Cosmetics • Relationship status: ;-) • Gemini

  
Alexandra Nicole has the look, and while we're certain that 100 percent of that look is her natural beauty, it doesn't hurt that she owns her own Memphis-based cosmetics line, Adel Amor Cosmetics. A former sales rep for International Paper, Alexandra left her office job to further develop her cosmetics line and open the Ivory Closet, her boutique in Harbor Town Square.

What I'm doing now, but I want to franchise the Ivory Closet. I also want to open a coffeeshop/bookstore and a spa.
 
Describe a typical Saturday night. 
Getting drinks with my girlfriends on the island and possibly going to one of the hotspots downtown.
 
What's the best advice you've ever received? 
Dream like you'll live forever, but live like you'll die tomorrow.

If you won the lottery, how would you spend your winnings first?
I'd take that dream vacation, and then I'd buy a house.

Life and work. 
What is your favorite Valentine's Day memory?
When I was in second grade, I liked a little boy. He put a Valentine in everyone's box except for me, and I thought maybe he didn't like me. And then after class, he handed me one that said, "Do you like me? Check 'yes' or 'no.'"
