Here’s what the 26-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:
On swimming with sharks for the shoot: “I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly. But I do not swim with sharks … sharks swim with sharks.”
On her favorite red carpet look ever: “My favorite red-carpet looks are usually the ones I get to help design: the Adam Selman Swarovski crystal dress at the CFDAs, the Stella McCartney all-white dress at the Met Gala, and the Adam Selman white jersey dress from the VMAs. But the red Azzedine Alaïa at the Grammys is also one of my favorites.”
On how much it takes to get her red carpet ready: “At times a lot of maintenance, and at times none. I have a job that requires quite a lot of glam, and I have a great team that helps me with that. But sometimes, like when I’m in the studio or on vacation, there’s little to no maintenance.”
On if there’s a line she wouldn’t cross, fashion wise: “I don’t like to commit to those kind of rules. You never know.”
