Get to know Lange by learning about her celebrity crush, dream date, and more:


How can a man catch your attention?

By being a gentleman. I am attracted to a man who opens the door, pulls out my chair, and knows he should walk on the outside, closest to the street. Chivalry and politeness go a long way.

What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard? 

I’ve heard a lot of bad pick-up lines. Once when I was leaving a bar, some guy grabbed me and said, “Feel my shirt. You know what it’s made of? Boyfriend material.” Insert eye-roll.

Unfortunately that’s not the worst one we’ve heard. How do you let a man know you’re interested? 

I am a big advocate for people expressing their feelings. Of course, a man should pursue a woman at the beginning of the relationship, but if I am genuinely interested, I will let him know. I am not into games, so if I make time for a man, then I am interested.

What does your dream date look like? 

My ideal date would have an element of spontaneity and be filled with laughter. I could hit up a food truck or a Michelin-starred restaurant, but there has to be chemistry and witty banter. I believe we should enjoy life, and I am one of those who can have fun anywhere.

What about a guy turns you on the most?

I am turned on by a man who is a leader without being controlling, a man who knows what he wants and feels confident communicating his needs. I have a very strong sense of self, and I want a man who is not afraid to match my confidence.

When do you feel sexiest?

I feel sexiest in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne.


Who’s your biggest celebrity crush, male or female?

My biggest celebrity crush is Drake. I like that he is sensitive but strong. He verbalizes his emotions about women, family, and intimate moments of emotional vulnerability.

What’s on your favorite music playlist?

My favorite music is ’90s hip-hop and R&B.

Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team?

LeBron James is the G.O.A.T.

Michael Jordan fans might have something to say about that. What fashion brands do you like the best?

When I get dressed up, I like to pair a unique cocktail dress from a boutique store with high-end heels like Jimmy Choo or Tom Ford. For a casual look, I am all about FRAME denim and a Rag & Bone tee.

What’s your favorite meal?

Anything sushi or Italian!

What’s your favorite thing to do in the bedroom?

I love to cuddle.

And what should a man never do in the bedroom?

Refuse a goodnight kiss.

Have any sexy fantasies?

Yes! And they all start in lingerie. Let’s just say, I have taken way too many acting classes to let role-playing go to waste.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?

There is no such thing as a guilty pleasure, there are only pleasures.
