+ Model Talk:
NV:What does a day as Emily Carter usually consist of?
EC: Depends on where in the world I am! I usually have a few castings or a job. If I’m in another country I’ll explore museums, restaurants, markets etc. If I’m in NYC I’ll spend days off with my family.
NV: What are some projects that you are currently working on right now in your modeling career?
EC: Trying to travel as much as possible. I think this job gives me an incredible opportunity to see and learn about the world and I want to take advantage of that.
NV: The best moment you have experienced in modeling so far?
EC: Shooting a prom story for Teen Vogue. I got to wear big, poofy, pink gowns and tiaras! My one and only princess moment.
NV: Favorite designers to wear/have worked with?
EC:The Marc by Marc Jacobs team was really fun to work with! We shot for a couple days so I got to know everyone and it didn’t feel like work at all! I love Rag+Bone’s clothing and J.Crew has great basics but honestly my favorite outfit is my Aviator Nation sweatpants/sweatshirt. So incredibly soft and comfy.
NV: Aside from modeling what are your other hobbies/passions?
EC: Reading Russian fiction, watching old scary movies, writing, seeing art.
NV: Where do you see yourself five years from now?
EC: Graduating from college!
· NV: Do you have any advice for aspiring models?
EC: Be smart, be healthy, and don’t give up!
This & That:
· NV: Favorite songs on repeat this week?
EC: White Dress-Kanye West, Free-Graffiti6, Pale Blue Eyes-The Velvet Underground
NV: Favorite color:
EC: Changes all the time but right now Pumpkin Orange!
NV: Who do you consider your style muses to be (living or dead)?
EC: My mom! She always looks elegant and put together. Kate Moss has awesome style. It’s simple so it doesn’t distract from her magnetic personality.
NV: Your favorite items in your closet right now are:
EC: A leather jacket from Veda that I got for trade, simple black jeans from Rag+Bone that I wear pretty much everyday and boots from a French brand called Swildens…that’s basically my uniform!
NV: What are your top fall 2012 fashion/beauty trends this season?
EC: I’m not exactly up to date on the trends but I love the idea of mixing prints. I wish I could pull it off! In terms of beauty trends Argan Oil is magical. I think dark plum lipstick is beautiful but every time I attempt it I end up wiping it off and opting for chapstick! Does quinoa count as a beauty trend? I could eat it for every meal.
NV: If you could live in another era, when would it be and why?
EC: Probably the mid 17th century/Enlightenment era. It’s such a fascinating time in history and it would be awesome to meet Locke, Voltaire, Newton, Descartes etc. That era completely changed the course of history so I imagine it would be an exciting time to be alive. In terms of fashion, I’d want to live in the 60’s. Women had gained a lot of rights and I think that translated to their style. A lot more daring and bold.
NV: Favorite local NYC spots:
EC: MoMA, Blue Bottle Coffee, Levain Bakery (Chocolate Chip Walnut cookies are other-worldly,) Tokyo 7 for vintage, Le Labo has the best smelling candles, Angelika theater always has interesting films and a cute café.
