Got lucky and scored oneon-one time with the most fol­lowed male model on so­cial me­dia and the face of Pen­shoppe’s Fall col­lec­tion, Lucky Blue Smith.

Preview (Philippines) - - Mood - BY MAURA RO­DRIGUEZ

PRE­VIEW: WHAT’S THE STORY BE­HIND YOUR CATCHY AND PECULIAR NAME? LUCKY:

Well, my mom had three girls be­fore me, so I’m the only boy. She al­ways says she was lucky to have a boy. She wanted my name to be “Blue,” [and] my dad picked “Lucky.” That’s how I got my name.

P: YOU’RE TALL AND LANKY— NOT THE TYP­I­CAL HYPERMASCULINE MODEL. WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN THEY SAY YOU’RE PRETTY OR THE DAVID BOWIE TYPE? L:

I don’t re­ally have an im­pres­sion. I’ve been given what I have and I’m just us­ing it. I’m just chill­ing. I’m flat­tered, though! It’s a nice com­pli­ment. I mean, be­ing com­pared to David Bowie is rad! He [was] the king!

P: DO YOU WORK OUT? L:

A cou­ple of min­utes? I dunno, I don’t re­ally go to the gym.

P: BUT DO YOU WANT TO BULK UP? L:

Nah, no. I don’t re­ally care about that too much. And my me­tab­o­lism is pretty high.

P: WE NO­TICED YOU AC­CES­SORIZE A LOT. HOW WOULD YOU DE­SCRIBE YOUR PER­SONAL STYLE? L:

I like tight, skinny jeans, a cool but­ton-down shirt—printed or not— and a pair of black boots. I like to layer some neck­laces on and wear rings, too. Just some­thing clas­sic, rock ‘n’ roll and a lit­tle vin­tage.

P: WHAT’S THE CRA­ZI­EST FASH­ION SHOW YOU’VE WALKED FOR? L:

Cra­zi­est? Phillip Plein, prob­a­bly. He just comes up with the cra­zi­est things. I opened the show stand­ing on the back of a mo­tor­cyle. It was crazy.

P: WHAT’S THE WEIRD­EST THING YOU HAD TO DO AS A MODEL? L:

It’s not re­ally all that weird, but I was in Lon­don for a shoot with Love Mag­a­zine and in this photo they wanted to put a darker lip on me. The photo was black and white so you couldn’t tell I was wear­ing dark lip­stick or what­ever. I didn’t like it that much but it was for the shot.

P: SO DO YOU WEAR MAKEUP? L:

Like right now? Or ever? No. They just put lo­tion on my face right now! [Laughs.]

P: …AND YOUR LASHES ARE CURLED. L:

I swear I didn’t do any­thing to them! They’re nat­u­rally like that!

P: WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU COULD YOU SAY “I’VE MADE IT” AS A MODEL? L:

Maybe not just mod­el­ing, but I think if I could be in a film with Leonardo Dicaprio, that would be it. That would be the coolest thing!
