When it comes to dressing up, I don’t have any anxiety at all—it’s actually something I really enjoy. It’s the quickest way to communicate a feeling — culturally and individually, clothing can represent something about our time or what is going on inside us. Fashion is the most immediate way to see something evolve.
On fashion in different places & knowing your body type:
In New York and Paris, I can push the envelope in terms of fashion. I can be riskier with my choices there. The type of choices you see on the streets there are more bold in terms of expression. L.A. is more casual; I pull back a little bit in terms of what I wear. I’ll look at someone like Beyoncé and say, ‘That dress is so amazing on her,’ but I know that my body type is completely different. I have more of a boyish figure, so anything that’s too loose or shapeless isn’t the most flattering for me.
On social media:
This need for approval is too overwhelming and it’s debilitating on social media—it is so much more accelerated now than when I started out. When I was about 21, I remember reading comments about me that were horrifying. I felt like I was standing in a roomful of people that were talking mean-spiritedly about me. It was then that I made a conscious decision to stay away from that negativity.
On how the world goes from topic to topic:
Part of what I find interesting right now is this world of immediacy and the ease with which we swipe from one topic to another. I’m trying to figure out what it means to be a kid or a teen right now—like my 18-year-old stepdaughter—who can read an article on the wildflowers in Montana and then swipe to how many gay men were killed by ISIS. How do we really process that properly when it is paired and presented in this simple platform? I wonder how much it is settling. If it’s not settling, then what does it mean to be an unsettled culture?”
