FROM: Bel Air, CA
BEST FASHION WEEK ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED: “Go fuck yourself.”
FAVORITE FASHION WEEK MEMORY: Courtney Love holding back my hair while I puked from joy after a Proenza Schouler S/S ‘10.
MOST EMBARRASSING FASHION WEEK MEMORY: Let’s just say it involves one Anna Wintour, one fart and zero apologies.
FASHION WEEK SURVIVAL TIP: Drink four gallons of water a day.
BEST FASHION WEEK HANGOVER CURE: Alka Seltzer and celery juice with a squeeze of lime and a raw egg. Also sleeping for 177 hours.
FASHION WEEK ACCESSORY DU JOUR: The Prada Steffano Leather clutches from S/S ‘12
IDEAL NYFW PARTY SCENARIO: Ryan Gosling, James Franco, and Mario Batali co-host a soiree in my honor, that involves a “models-only” guest list. Everyone tells me how great my hair looks all night while pouring me glass after glass of champagne.
NY RESTAURANT: Organic Avenue – Try the “green coco”. You will die from being reborn.
FAVORITE NY WATERING HOLE: Rume: a top secret space underneath Le Baron. Members only. Get there early because it only fits three people.
WORST THING ABOUT NY DURING FASHION WEEK: Fat people don’t blend in as easily.
FAVORITE NYFW SNACK ON THE GO: In the winter, cold air. In the spring, warm air.
NY NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THE BEST STREET STYLE: Hoboken . . . . JK, I don’t even know what a Hoboken actually is. Meatpacking.
TOP THREE INDUSTRY INFLUENCERS: Skyler Morrison Berman, Bob Marley and Marc Jacobs.
MOST ANTICIPATED SHOW AT MADE FASHION WEEK THIS SEASON: Nahm. It’s feminine, masculine, and Hunger Games-y.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING RIGHT NOW: Nothing. I prefer answering questionnaires in the nude.
FAVORITE ONE-LINER: You look like you could use a nap.
