XANDRA Makes Hilarious Jokes About Her Biggest Insecurity

The DJ and influencer admitted what she’s most self-conscious about during Miami Swim Week.


As fall rolls closer, we find ourselves looking fondly back at memories from Miami Swim Week this July. In addition to the main event, an incredible fashion show at the W South Beach, SI Swimsuit talent were able to get to know one another better during a poolside game of Q&A-style giant Jenga.

Six-time SI Swimsuit star Camille Kostek and DJ XANDRA teamed up to play a game, and it was an incredibly fun time from start to finish. When Kostek asked XANDRA, “What beauty or fashion trend do you think will dominate this year?,” the recent University of Miami graduate was initially at a loss. Kostek then pointed at XANDRA’s hands and predicted natural nails as a forthcoming beauty trend, which caused the Miami-based DJ to admit an insecurity.

“I have like really small fingers and it’s like actually my biggest insecurity... people call me ‘sausage fingers,’” she admitted, then goofily mimed DJing as she continued to poke fun at herself.

The bubbly influencer started DJing as a junior in high school, after being inspired by seeing Alison Wonderland perform at Lollapalooza. XANDRA then went on to perform at frat parties and then clubs throughout college. Not only did she DJ the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Runway Show at the W South Beach for Miami Swim Week, but XANDRA also hit the catwalk herself, where she modeled a tiny yellow-and-white string bikini.

“Guess what?” Kostek pointed out. “They make great music.”
