DOES TAY­LOR HILL HAVE A MODEL BESTIE? If her supe-stacked In­sta­gram ac­count is any in­di­ca­tion, the straight an­swer is no. “I’m friends with pretty much ev­ery­body,” she says over the phone from her home in Los Angeles. (Al­though Romee Strijd and Jas­mine Tookes fre­quently ap­pear in her snaps.) “I’ve been do­ing [fash­ion] shows since I was 16, and I’ve known a lot of the girls for a long time,” says the 21-year-old Amer­i­can model. “See­ing ev­ery­one dur­ing Fash­ion Week is like the thrill of the first day back to school: You get to see all the friends you haven’t seen all sum­mer.” Hill first walked for DKNY in 2013 and has since fronted cam­paigns for ev­ery­one from Topshop to Thakoon; she has also been the face of Lancôme for the past year. “I hang out with as many peo­ple as I can be­cause I think they’re all re­ally cool,” she says.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST RUN­WAY MEM­ORY

YET? “The Miu Miu show two sea­sons ago. I was the ‘fit’ model [the model whose body is mea­sured for ev­ery item in the col­lec­tion], and I was there for three days try­ing on clothes and hav­ing fab­ric sewn on me. Usu­ally the fit­ting is a ‘fit to con­firm,’ but you aren’t guar­an­teed to walk in the show; some­times they change things at the last minute and you’re never re­ally in the show un­til you’re on the run­way, so I was feel­ing re­ally ner­vous. They put me in this out­fit, and Mi­uc­cia [Prada] walked in and said, ‘This is the first look of the show.’ I asked, ‘This is the first one?’ and then she said, ‘I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and your great at­ti­tude th­ese past few days; you de­serve this.’ I started cry­ing. I booked the [Miu Miu] cam­paign af­ter that, so it was a re­ally special mo­ment in high fash­ion for me.”

WHAT ARE YOUR MAKEUP GO- TOS OR MUST-HAVES? ARE YOU A LIP GIRL OR AN

EYE GIRL? “I like to keep it pretty nat­u­ral if I’m out­side hav­ing fun—you should be free. If you’re go­ing on va­ca­tion and you want to go swim­ming, I like the idea of keep­ing it low-key; I like feel­ing fresh, like I’m not try­ing. The only thing that I would bring in my makeup bag is prob­a­bly a wa­ter­proof mas­cara or con­cealer and highlighter. You re­ally don’t have to worry about skin cov­er­age—you want to look glow-y or fresh.”

WHERE DO YOU GET IDEAS FOR AP­PLY­ING MAKEUP? DO YOU WATCH A LOT OF

YOUTUBE VIDEOS? “No. I ac­tu­ally get it from my job—from see­ing how the makeup artists do it, like which brushes they pre­fer or how they use a sponge. Since I of­ten get my makeup done in a va­ri­ety of ways, I’ve re­ally learned what’s best for my face.”

MAKEUP ASIDE, WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER MUST-HAVES WHEN YOU’RE TRAV­EL­LING

OR ON VA­CA­TION? “Sun­screen for your face is re­ally im­por­tant. And I use co­conut oil on my body, es­pe­cially af­ter a day at the beach.” WHAT’S YOUR VA­CA­TION SOUND­TRACK? “It kind of de­pends on what’s pop­u­lar and what ev­ery­one is lis­ten­ing to—last year it was all about Bey­oncé. That and the Drake al­bum Views was out. I love pop mu­sic!”

THE TWIST “We used rope swatches to se­lect the colours for the col­lec­tion,” ex­plains Mar­tel. “The Lise Watier team then brought the swatches to the fac­to­ries to colour match.”

EASY LIKE SUN­DAY MORN­ING The theme of the col­lec­tion was in­spired by those week­end mo­ments you take for your­self.
