Alexandra Daddario dazzles at Baywatch slow marathon in LA

The beautiful actress, who plays Summer Quinn in the upcoming summer comedy Baywatch, appeared at the Slow Mo Marathon Saturday at LA Live in Los Angeles in promotion for the forthcoming film. The 36-year-old beamed at the promotional function, clad in a black shoulder-less top with multicoloured patterns and black shorts. With her brown locks down, she rounded out her springtime get-up with chunky white heels with ankle straps.

The rules of Saturday’s marathon – touted by organizers as ‘a marathon, but a marathon like no other’ – was that entrants had to run about 1,000 feet in slow motion, as popularized by the 90s waterfront series that starred Pamela Anderson. Entrants were set to be judged for their style, hairdo and outfit, with the victor getting a trip to the film’s Miami premiere next month.

An ad on the film’s Facebook page challenged fans to ‘come down and put your body, heart and mind to the test.’ The New York City native was joined at the event by her co-stars Zac Efron, Ilfenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach.

The event also served as an unofficial reunion for original stars of the highly-rated 90s show. Erika Eleniak, Nancy Valen, Donna D’Errico and Kelly Packard were seen on hand for the festivities.

The San Andreas beauty, who was named one of Marie Claire’s five Fresh Faces of 2017, told the publication that the summer film takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the franchise.

She said, ‘It’s fun to be young and pretty and sexy, that’s part of the joke – we’re all ridiculously hot running around on the beach,’ adding that the film’s leading men, Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson ‘are shirtless with all their abs’ through much of the movie. ‘They wear less clothing than the women,’ said Alexandra, who’s also been seen in Baked in Brooklyn, American Horror Story and True Detective.
