Hello, It’s Ann. It’s great to see you. Can I interview your closet? Hi Ann! I´d be happy to! :)
You’ve walked for Palomo during Mercedes Benz Fashion week twice. What do you like especially about Palomo’s aesthetic? Has it inspired some of your styling off the runway? Palomo was my first show ever, I walked it on my first week as a model and I was so in shook, it was amazing seen everything behind the scenes. I love the playful and Spanish scent of Palomo´s aesthetic. And it has influence me in some of my style choices, now I wear lighter and more colorful clothes for sure.
In my opinion Madrid Fashion week had some of the most exciting runway shows this season. What do you think is special about living in Spain and how people in Spain dress? I don't really know what it is but living in Spain is something special, maybe it’s the people, the weather or the way of life here. When I am in Spain I am at peace and happier, maybe it’s just because it’s my home country. Spain has a lot of different cultures and people dress in many different ways. The fashion industry here is good but I think that for it to go to the next level it needs to get more consolidation and a stronger common base that identifies Spain as a solid brand. There is a lot of talent and emerging talent that are doing things that are really inspiring, not just in fashion but in art in general. In Madrid I feel something big is cooking and I can’t wait to taste it.
I love the supernatural fashion story you did for Vogue Italia. The styling was fantastic as well as the set. Where did the shoot take place and what was it like working with the Vogue Italia Team as well as taking photos with a dog as an accessory? The shoot took place in Castello Dal Pozzo, a castle near Milan, it was super cool. I couldn't have wished for a better team, they were all super nice and profesional. I loved that day. The dog was called Amelia and she was really cute, she posed better than me! That said I am against animal abuse and the use of some animals in photoshoots.
What’s your favorite sweatshirt and where did you find it? My most recent favorite sweatshirt is a Yeezy beige hoodie i bought in Antonioli, a nice concept store in Milan.
Do you prefer movies, tv or books? What’s your most recent favorite(s)? Movies or books, I don't even own a tv anymore, there are some shows on the tv i enjoy but I can always watch them online. My most recent favorite book is Norwegian Wood by Murakami.
What did you do the last time you went out? Last Thursday I went to the cinema and after to a nightclub.
Where did you go and what did you order? I am such a kid for some things! I went to the cinema to watch Incredibles 2, for the second time that week, I also had a lot of popcorn. After I went to a night club in Madrid called Infierno, which means hell.
What is your favorite beverage of choice? I just drink water for real, I don't like sodas or alcohol, some fruit juice is nice too.
What is your personal theme song/anthem? I don’t have one, right now I enjoy listening to Frank Ocean, Fad Gadget and Rosalia.
Where was the last place you traveled to? I went to Berlin with some friends last week, because a friend has a house there, it was my first time in the city and I truly recommend it.
What was your favorite part of the trip and what were you wearing at the time? We saw the biennale art exhibit, biked around town, had amazing food and really great night life. The weather was mad crazy, but during the day I wore just jeans, a sleeveless white t-shirt with a shirt on top. During the night my friend told me to wear all black to look like I was from Berlin, so I could get into clubs haha. Also during this trip I shaved my hair kind of short, that was a change.
Who do you follow on Instagram for style inspiration? Nothing in particular, I don't really get style inspiration from instagram, I just follow my friends.
If you were a car what would you be? Honestly I have no clue about cars.
If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner who would you invite and why? John Galliano, I am very curious about knowing how his mind works.
Fill in the blanks regarding your closet!
The last thing I bought online was a vivienne westwood necklace but I prefer to shop at an actual store to get basic clothes that we all need in our closets..
My favorite shoes of the season are Reebok classics or these neoprene Prada boots.
I spent too much money on food but saved a lot of money on socks.
I would love to be on the cover of this magazine Vogue and wear this Yves Saint Laurent.
I wear this fragrance loewe 001 but I love smelling this fragrance on someone else alien by mugler.
