Q&A with Tumblr Star Rachel Nina Schwartz
Name: rachel nina schwartz (darklamb.tumblr.com)
Actual Hometown/ Dream Residence: los angeles but nearly a decade in nyc/ Roma!!!
If your Tumblr account would be a TV series, pitch us a concept in one sentence: (mis)adventures of a mostly single aesthetically oriented female in downtown new york city, her wacky designer friends, her insistence on attempting to art-direct real life, and her devotion to fashion, peppered with ambitious baking projects, her martini-swilling diana vreeland-esque grandmother’s pronouncements (it’s not how you feel, it’s how you look), and plenty of snarky commentary.
Fashion icon I’d be nervous to say hi to: miuccia prada and grace coddington
Most sacred fashion experience so far: dressing models at mens fashion week in milan, tied with running into andre leon talley in the hallway outside vera wang’s studio
Model look-alike: mariacarla boscono
TIme I wake up: 6:55
Biggest allergy: scrawny boys in bands
What I sing in the shower: rihanna- only girl
Trashiest guilty pleasure: watching the real housewives (nyc and beverly hills)
Language I’d like to learn: portuguese (also my french could use some brushing up)
How I like my Milk: organic and in coffee only
