Here’s what the 23-year-old model had to share with the mag:
On her friendship with Taylor Swift: “Taylor and I met at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show two years ago. [Model] Lily Aldridge introduced us. She was like, ‘OK, you two are kindred spirits. How have my two nice American friends never met?’ And that was it….. Our friendship is the same as yours and mine. Many of my closest friends are traveling all the time, so it takes constant effort—texting, FaceTiming—on all ends to maintain close relationships.”
On attending NYU in the fall: “I didn’t want to wait until I’m 30 to continue learning and challenging myself in new ways. I am 23 and at a very busy point in my career, but I hope it’s just the beginning. I want to do it all….Like most kids starting college, my major is still ‘undecided.’ Next year will be a big balancing act—but how exciting! I haven’t written a paper in years, so I may be calling you [friend and interviewer Derek Blasberg] for homework help.”
On her image of fashion’s sweetest supermodel: “There are worse things than being called sweet. And I think the way that both you and I [Blasberg] were raised was to be grateful to people. I’m a nice girl, and I’ve embraced it.”
