How do you think fashion impacts your public persona and how people see you?
I like to think of myself as a strong influence for young people, and I think a big thing about being young is finding out who you are, experimenting, not being afraid to try things, and not being afraid to really embrace who you are and what makes you happy. And I think fashion is a big part of that. You don’t have to care about what people think or let people determine your happiness. Do whatever the heck you want.
Describe your style in three words…
I would say, my style is pretty fearless, definitely unique but still classic.
Do you have any style icons?
Honestly, just people who like to do their own thing. For example, Eryka Badu. People who don’t really follow the rules that are set in fashion and wear whatever the heck they want because that’s their style or that’s what they create for themselves. It’s a very admirable quality.
You change up your hair a lot—from pixie to flowing and wavy. What’s the thought process behind that?
I really don’t have any fear especially when it comes to like my style. Someone could literally tell me “Put on a trash bag and wear some Louboutins” and I would do it, and I would feel comfortable in it—as long as I had the right hair, the right makeup, I would do it.
Do you have a trademark accessory?
I like to wear a lot of rings—they’re fun to layer up.
How do you approach daily life style versus when you’re at an event?
I’m working all the time, so my everyday life is actually pretty dull. Right now I’m wearing a sweatshirt, denim and Nike Flyknits—just normal, casual, comfortable. Fashion when I’m on the red carpet gives me an outlet to have fun—to wear things that I wouldn’t wear on an everyday basis.
What’s your spring update?
Actually I just got a recent influx of shoes. I’m obsessed with the 130mm Louboutins in bright yellow that I just bought.
What’s your first fashion memory?
Well I used to love to dress up. Even though I was a tomboy, I loved to dress up. I stopped letting my parents pick out my clothes when I was two years old. I was allowed to wear whatever, even if it didn’t match, and it was a complete and utter wreck of an outfit. They totally allowed me to just be myself, which I think is really important.
What beauty looks do you gravitate to?
I like to keep it pretty neutral, but it all depends on the look. My stylist and I, we go for a time or an era that fits in with our look. We grab a lot of inspiration from the past. So that’s with makeup as well.
What’s your wardrobe MVP?
I love my bomber jackets. A white tee, a bomber jacket, and some cool shoes, always works for me.
Are you a closet editor or builder?
Both. I definitely like to clean out every once in a while because it gets ridiculous and overwhelming, but I’m definitely a builder as well. I think of it as adding to my collection.
Where would you like to see yourself going forward?
I plan on doing what I love to for a really, really long time, but also being happy at the same time. I think at the end of the day, you have to be happy with what you’re doing and creating, so as long as I’m happy, I’m good.
