For many people the Savage x line means a lot in regards to empowerment, representation, and challenging beauty ideals. As a model for the line, what's it like being a part of that conversation?
I’m thankful that it IS a conversation…and that all types of beautiful creatures were able to participate in this campaign (being included and accepted. The images we are left with tell a story about women today and the women of our future... We aren’t overly sexualized in our lingerie, rather owning our sexuality whatever that means to us. I love how it’s a big Fuck You, like, this is all me all mine and I’ll do what I want in or out of my lingerie.
You’ve said that you feel sexy when you look a bit ‘masculine’, what does masculinity and femininity mean to you?
I don’t think that in order to feel sexy or confident, one has to identify with one or the other. We all have both masculinity and femininity qualities within us - no matter your gender or what you’ve been told. The older I’ve gotten the more comfortable I’ve become with not having to live up to this idea of femininity. I enjoy discovering different sides of myself.
How do you interact with those roles in your day to day life?
There are still total ideas of what each is and what makes up each role individually, like behavior, success, appearance, and it affects how we’re treated daily. We’re on the path towards a non-discriminatory, open, non-sexist world, where these roles aren’t roles but qualities of any given human.
What’s your go to lingerie choice?
Black panties, black bra. Or nothing at all...
