Supermodel Amber Valletta Is the Master Muse for 'Editorialist'

Supermodel Amber Valletta Is the Master Muse for 'Editorialist'

Amber Valletta looks gorgeous in black and white for the cover of Editorialist‘s Holiday 2014 digital issue, available now.

Here is what the 40-year-old supermodel and actress had to share with the mag:

On connecting with the website’s origin
: “My mother was an environmental activist who was very passionate about giving back to the community. I grew up on my grandparents’ farm, so I knew about environmentalism even before it was a hot topic and I always had a strong connection to the world around me. I also saw that there was a disconnect in our industry between producing things not just responsibly to the environment, but also to people, and paying people fairly. So when I started to think about my next steps and building a brand, I decided that it needed to match my beliefs. So I began researching to see if there were any brands that were like-minded.”

On walking in Christian Dior‘s 2007 show for designer John Galliano: “Galliano is one of my favorites and a friend of mine, and [the experience] was just so cool. It was this incredible moment to be in Versailles and doing a big anniversary show for Dior.”

On being called a muse: To master anything, you have to be exceptional and work very hard, and the same for being a muse. A muse is not just [someone] who sits in the corner looking beautiful. A muse is actually an active, powerful word.”
