Her Early Life
Ali Michael was born as Alexandra Nicole Michael on May 15, 1990, in Colleyville, Texas. Her career began after winning the Fashion!Dallas / Kim Dawson Model Search contest in 2005 at age 15. She attended Grapevine High School but withdrew with just one semester left to focus on her modeling career. She moved to New York shortly after to continue and focus on her modeling career.
In 2006, Ali was signed by DNA Models and appeared in an Italian Elle editorial. The following year, she made her runway debut on the fall New York runway, where she opened for 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alice Roi.

Health and Weight Struggles
In February 2008, during the Paris fashion week, Ali was sent home after being told that “her legs were too plump.” She gained five pounds after struggling with an eating disorder. Ali then became the center of an article titled “Wasn’t Skinny Supposed to Be Out of Fashion?” in The Wall Street Journal on February 28, 2008.
In May 2008, she appeared on the Today Show, accompanied by Amy Astler, Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue magazine, and openly talked about her struggle with bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and the increasing pressure to be thin as a model. She stated that she “hadn’t had [her] period in over a year” and had a wake-up call on a plane, when, she said, “I ran my fingers through my hair, and when I took my hand away there was a dry brittle clump of hair in my hand.” Ali began to see a nutritionist to deal with her weight and eating issues, including bulimia nervosa.
