WWD: Where on earth did you come up with this idea?
Kym Canter: I went to do a story ages ago on the plushie convention. I was going to do it for some indie magazine or wherever. Afterward I wanted to add more pictures, so I asked my assistant if she had her childhood stuffed animals and her mother found huge boxes full. Star just, you know, had something, and she really wanted it, so I started shooting her.
WWD: And carrying her around everywhere you went?
K.C.: Yes. She still goes tons of places with me. My friends are like, "You have to stop." I just came back from Egypt and I shot her at the Pyramids, and I took her to the Middle East. She always goes to Paris.
WWD: Does she have her own seat on the plane?
K.C.: She's pretty used to having her own seat. In the worst-case scenario, she'll take an arm rest. She's very spoiled. Her favorite mode of transportation is my Birkin bag.
WWD: In one of the photos, it looks like she's carrying a mini rabbit-fur handbag.
K.C.: It is not rabbit, it's mink.
