Who are some of your favorite designers and what elements from their collections resonate with you the most?
I love Alexander Wang, his model-off-duty look has become much more sophisticated but still has a dark, edgy vibe. Christopher Kane is another favorite of mine, his collections are always really fun—I always love his prints and feminine shapes. I also love Riccardo Tisci for his gothic glamour.
What is the one thing in your closet you couldn't live without?
I couldn't live without my black Vanessa Bruno draped blazer. It's the most versatile piece I own.
What would be your most memorable career moment?
Last November I learned how to skateboard for a feature with Bazaar.com and TheCools.com with awesome girls like Hannah Bronfman, Jessica Hart, Natalie Joos, Anastasia Ganias and Annie Georgia Greenberg. Bobbi Brown created these amazing hot pink skateboards for us to use in our lesson with pro skater Eli Reed. Everyone put their own chic spin on skate wear, and it was just a really fun day.

Who would you say is your style icon? What makes them an icon to you?
I definitely admire the style of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Miranda Kerr. They look just as amazing in jeans and a blazer, as they do in a red-carpet gown. They never look like they're trying to be stylish, they just are.
Now that there are two weeks left in fashion month, are there any shows that you are looking forward to in Milan and/or Paris?
I'm really looking forward to Acne's first show in Paris, and I think everyone will be waiting with bated breath for Alexander Wang's first collection for Balenciaga.
