Alexandra flew out to Florida on New Year's Eve and saw in 2013 by watching Drake play live.

Looking stunning in a red dress, she sent a Twitpic to her followers saying: "Happy new year guys..With love, from Miami xx".

And it looks like she's having a pretty good time out in the party city, after she posted a snap of herself holding her head in her hands on New Year's Day, saying: "Messy night again? #Jan1stBaby!!!"
