Want to find out more about the woman behind all those excellent choices?

How does it feel to have your very own ASOS Style Edit?
It’s a pretty cool feeling. One of my friends [Madison Beer] has already had their own edit and I was like, that’s sick. I never thought I would have the chance to curate my own, with all my favourite looks! I’m really excited and grateful.

What made you want to work with ASOS?
I have SO many clothes from ASOS. There are just so many different choices, it’s not just a brand that sells one type of thing. There’s everything from fancy going-out dresses to tracksuits, to swimwear… something for all occasions.

Would you say that choice is something you wanted to convey with your own edit?
Yeah, absolutely. I wanted to showcase my own style in lots of different ways, from tonal swimwear for beachy vibes to a really dressed-up, going-out kind of look – or, as you guys would say, ‘a smart vibe’!

What are your favourite pieces or looks from your edit?
I have a lot! I’m really into shoulder pads right now, and I’m loving the big-shoulder dress in the edit, as well as the suits – they’re really cute. I love a ripped jean with a lil’ bra-top and a blazer chucked over the top. And the blazer dress – LOVE! I know it’s a cliché, but I just really like everything. Oh, and the colour scheme of the swimwear – very beachy, very tonal.

Your edit features a mix of smart and casual pieces – but if you could only dress up or down for ever, which would you choose?
Erm… that’s a really easy question to answer. I would definitely be dressing in sweatpants!

So, comfort over everything?
I mean, yes… and no. When I get dressed in the morning, I want to be comfortable, but I also wanna be chic and cute, you know? If I met someone important, I wouldn’t want to be looking… raggedy?

Are there any accessories that stand out in the edit?
There are a bunch of gold chains that can really dress up a look. Take the tracksuits in the edit, for example – add some gold chains and it’s already elevated. It’s such a good way to make something more of a comfy look.

You’ve got over a million followers on Insta and a lot of people will look to you for style inspiration, but where do you find yours?
Recently, I’ve been trying to be more minimalist. It’s all about simple colours and shapes but with a kind of vintage, 90s vibe. I actually copy the style from Friends a lot. I keep re-watching it because the styling is just so good – the hair, everything! Sometimes it can be a Phoebe moment but mostly Monica and Rachel. They all had very 90s accessories, and the little bags and small sunnies are my accessories of choice at the moment. I like going through my Insta to find inspiration from old Fashion Week shows. Particularly the 90s or the early 2000s.

If you weren’t a model, what would you like to be doing?
I don’t really consider myself ‘just a model’, because there are so many other things I want to be working on – like music. In the near future, I hope to release some songs that I’ve been working on. I’m still learning to write my own music and trying to find my own sound. It takes a while, but I’m ok with that. It’s something I’m really passionate about and there’s no need to rush it.

You travel all over the globe for work. What’s been your favourite destination and why?
I’m lucky because I get to travel and experience so many different cultures and the real differences between them. But, if we’re talking one place, I really love Tulum. It has to be a good tropical vibe and there’s something about the ocean that I really like. I love being surrounded by it and the relaxing effect it has on me.

What are the items you can’t live without in your hand luggage?
I always take a face mask to put on during the flight to keep my skin hydrated. And antiseptic gel – I have a weird trick my mom taught me, I put a tiny bit up each nostril to try and trap all the germs and bacteria you come across when you’re flying. I mean, everyone looks at me kinda weird when I’m applying it, but I’m cool with it.

Do you have a travelling look?
Oh yeah. Am I wearing jeans on an airplane? Hell, no! I wear what I like to call cozies – things like sweatpants, oversized sweatshirts and hoodies, maybe a lightweight jumper, because I get really cold. Anything warm, like a beanie, and of course, my little blanket.
