Stats: 17 years old; from Pawleys Island, S.C.; repped by Next.
Spring runway scores: Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Chanel couture.
First show ever: “Marc Jacobs. Supposedly he does his castings in the middle of the night but mine was at 7; I was one of the first girls there. Everyone had to change into this gold metallic slipdress and Marc had us sit on a chair and positioned us into this very Fosse pose. I’m a dancer so I walked up and automatically did a similar pose. He asked me if I was a dancer — I guess it worked!”
On Chanel couture: “It was a dream, especially since it was my first couture show. I was kind of starstruck when I saw Karl [Lagerfeld]. I went up and thanked him after the show and we did the French double air-kiss thing.”
Casting necessities: “Today I brought beef jerky, a granola bar, vegetable chips, dried fruit and a chocolate bar. And I always have Band-Aids for my feet.”
NYFW uniform: “We’re supposed to wear lots of black. I grew up near the beach where everyone’s in flip-flops and brightly colored dresses. It’s been an adjustment. My agency gave me tips on how to dress to get the mood of the designer — really sleek for Calvin Klein with your hair pulled back in a bun, and more downtown-edgy for Marc Jacobs.”
