With a hidden talent for camouflage and a penchant for disguises, this issue’s muse is a woman we’ve long wanted to get to know better. A citizen of the world, she was born in New Orleans, raised in California just a stone’s throw from Venice Beach, spent time in her father’s native France and now calls New York’s Little Italy home. After being discovered at 14, she made her runway debut opening Chloé’s SS 18 show and has posed for contemporary greats such as Theo Wenner and Cass Bird. She finds solitude amongst literature, believes success tends to look a lot like happiness and when inspiration strikes, she works hard to make it real. Mysterious girl, I want to get close to you.
