CAST­ING CALL

The Kit - - THEKIT.CA -

She’s walked the run­ways (Miu Miu, Dolce & Gab­bana and March­esa among them) and earned her Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret An­gel wings, and now Tay­lor Hill is the face of Top­shop, one of fash­ion’s most rec­og­niz­able names. Here, the 20- year- old model chats about mov­ing to New York and why she loves cold-weather style.

What was it like grow­ing up in Colorado? “It was cold, but fun! I have a lot of sib­lings, and we would go snow­board­ing, hik­ing and sled­ding on snow days. We lived in the mid­dle of nowhere— the clos­est city was Denver, which was 30 min­utes away. Com­ing to New York was such a shock. I was like, ‘ Where’s the sky?’”

How did you prep for your first run­way cast­ing? “When I did my first NYFW sea­son, my agent took me into Top­shop and bought me black, skinny jeans, a white tank top and heels [for cast­ings]. From then on, I loved it. It’s the in- be­tween of low- end and high- end. You feel so com­fort­able shop­ping in there be­cause you’re never spend­ing a for­tune get­ting what you want.”

What do you love about win­ter dress­ing? “The lay­er­ing. Dur­ing the sum­mer, fash­ion can get bor­ing re­ally quick— you only wear so many things and you’re al­ways wear­ing san­dals. You can re­ally switch it up in the win­ter with coats, hats and boots. There’s more to play with.” — Jil­lian Vieira
