Fashion / The Face

Georgia Fowler

The one we can’t look away from. At first glance we’re hooked on those long limbs and eyes that transfix. New Yorked-based Georgia Fowler plays our current muse with bee-stung lips and perfectly tousled bed-head locks. Photographed by Max Papendieck over a warm Fourth of July weekend, Fowler opens up to RUSSH about her morning rituals and why home will always be by the ocean.

“I ‘live’ in New York, but home will always be where the beach is near and my family is.”

Discovered at the age of 16, this New Zealand native, whose friends would describe her as “goofy”, first made her international mark on the Chanel runway and relocated to New York five years ago. No longer a new kid to the city, she’s attuned to the local ways – her mornings don’t begin ’til she’s had “coffee …  and another coffee”.

“If I’m not working, it’s at a café on top of the newspaper, followed by a workout. Otherwise it’s a French press at home before I race out the door.”

A style chameleon, Fowler is adept at matching her wardrobe to her mood. As striking in a black Ellery slip dress as she is in jeans and a white t-shirt, she’s equal parts sultry and down-to-earth. “Some days I like to dress boyish, other days I love a girly dress.”

“Usually I keep it classic, denim, suiting or leather pants with a button down shirt or classic tee.”
