There are many great things about working at a magazine like Complex, but one of the best has got to be all the gorgeous models who come through our office for photoshoots. Perfect example: Samantha Rex. We featured this stunning newcomer in our most recent issue, where we shot her for an article about picking up girls on New Year's Eve (hence all the photos of drinking and cheering...wooo!). We just put an extended gallery of Samantha's shoot online, along with a quick interview with the Nebraska native...
