Backstage at any fashion show is an orchestrated circus of makeup, hair, fittings and cameras all buzzing to prep for the show. We got a chance to peek behind the curtain at Zadig & Voltaire’s Fall 2018 presentation which took place during New York Fashion Week. It-models Hailey Baldwin and Dilone were among the crew who walked the runway in the brand’s reinterpretation of the suit. The collection meshed masculine and feminine silhouettes, adding in a bit of leather for that rock-and-roll effect.
Tell us more about your partnership with L’Oréal.
I’ve been a global ambassador for three years now. I’m actually going to work with a project with them tonight.
Can you tell us what’s coming up? Your highlighter is beautiful.
[Smiling] No, sorry. Stay tuned.
What is it like walking on the runway?
I love the energy of backstage but it can be a bit distracting. I enjoy it either way.
What are your favorite trends this year?
I love a lot of the vinyl action that’s happening and I kind of like the return of UGGs. I thought they were atrocious but after seeing them at the Y/Project show I’m reconsidering. It’s funny how it’s been spun for the new generation.
How would you describe your style?
My style is kind of eclectic. I take inspiration from anywhere on the street and make it on my own, anything from the runway to movies. I enjoy mixing and matching pieces to fit my own taste.
Tell us about your style. What do you like to wear?
When I was young I was in little crowns and high heels with little dresses. Now I’m always in jeans, T-shirts and sneakers.
Is comfort a top priority for you?
Comfort is important. It wasn’t always that way but I’ve come to agree with it.
Tell me about you favorite kicks to wear.
