Think of your favorite model.
Now think of yourself.
Faran has a theory that people like the models they like because they resemble them.
Some of her favorite models are Cintia Dicker and Lily Cole, who both have wavy/curly hair and round faces–like Faran.
This summer intern Sarah’s favorite model was Irina Lazareanu, with whom she shares her ’60s rocker style and dark blunt bangs.
Our favorite models tend to be other light-haired pale girls with prominent cheekbones (Lara Stone, Sasha Pivovarova).
And we’ve always thought it was funny that Natalia Vodianova got her solo Vogue cover after she cut her hair into an Anna Wintour style bob.
Maybe we like models that we can see as our ideal versions of ourselves;
Taller, with perfectly applied eyeliner, and killer clothes.
Maybe they’re the grown-up version of the American Girl dolls you can customize to look like you and dress in matching clothes (except in our case the models have the clothes first).
Do you share features with your favorite catwalker?
