22 JULY 2021 | MODELISTE
What’s a top highlight in your career? Walking the Victoria's Secret runway. What’s your favorite time of day? When the sun sets and the sky is a dark blue and all the trees are silhouettes. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared to try? Skydiving!
What’s something you learned about yourself in COVID-19 quarantine? Taking time for yourself and stopping everything around you for a period of time can be refreshing and can ignite new creative flows. What’s your spirit animal? Sometimes a tiger, sometimes a sloth. How did you start your career as a model? I was a “Brandy Melville Girl” when they first blew up on Instagram and it was a domino effect from there. What are you most excited about at this time in your life? My mental strength and how much I’ve grown. I’ve finally fallen in love with myself. What's your biggest vice and how do you overcome it? My biggest vice has to be my issues with being alone and being a bit of a “serial dater”. I’ve overcome it by fighting that urge to need someone other than myself. I’ve learned to love being alone and focusing completely on my career rather than a love life.
As a model and an Influencer, how do you hope to influence people through your platform? I hope to give people a sense of relatability and authenticity. I’m a very transparent and honest person, so letting people know they aren’t alone in what they go through, whether it be family trauma or insecurities, we all go through it, even the “perfect” models on Instagram. What would you like to say to your fans? You guys truly bring me so much light when I feel low about myself. I’m so grateful for the support and understanding you have for me. For those who really know me and my story, you guys are my family. You guys are a part of me and we’re best friends.

JOSIE MARAN www.JosieMaran.com @josiemaran 26 JULY 2021 | MODELISTE
he pioneer of clean, Argan oilpowered beauty and one of the first to champion the natural potency of pure oils, Josie Maran has become celebrated as a skincare staple. From skincare to selfcare, this unique and transformative line has quickly risen the ranks of the beauty industry and has quickly become one of the most world renowned, sought-after, go-to brands known for its cruelty-free products and effective, radiant skincare results. Here, in our exclusive interview, Josie Maran shares the philosophy and inspiration behind the brand, summer skincare tips, and why you’ll love this luscious line. Tell us about the philosophy of Josie Maran beauty line. Sourced from a UNESCO-protected region in Morocco, 100% Pure Argan Oil is the center of everything we do—from our skintransforming products to our collaboration with women’s co-ops and Earth-first sustainability platform. Our cruelty-free formulations honor inclusivity from soil to seed to bottle and are safe and effective for every skin type and lifestyle.
We believe in the vibrational energy of conscious skincare. It is a communitycentered effort, with a responsibility to support the environment, nurture the self, and cultivate joyful human connection. We celebrate the radical courage behind bare skin, and the reverberating effects of nourishing yourself from the inside out. What makes Josie Maran so unique in the beauty industry? Our founder, Josie, was led to the power of Argan Oil and its incredible ability to help people see with their skin and overall wellness. Our signature 100% Pure Argan Oil is sustainably and transparently sourced from a UNESCO-protected region in southwestern Morocco. The Argan nuts are distributed among 100% women-owned and operated co-ops, where the workers are paid fair living wages. From there, the nuts are hand-cracked, cold-pressed, and charcoalfiltered to make our powerfully pure Argan Oil for use all over, on hair, skin, and nails. How would you define beauty? Beauty is more than looking and feeling good. It’s about being a light to those
around you, leading with kindness and love, and helping people and the planet we’ve inherited. What is something people would be surprised to learn about Josie Maran? You'll find Argan Oil in every single one of our formulas, and 100% Pure Argan Oil is our #1 best selling product! Every time we create a new formula, we look to Argan Oil to add its unmatched skincare superpower benefits –we're that crazy obsessed with it. Can you tell us about your new ProRetinol collection? This year we expanded our Pro-Retinol line and launched Argan Pro-Retinol Eye Cream & Whipped Argan Pro-Retinol Body Butter. The key ingredient is pink algae -- it works like a traditional synthetic retinol to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth texture, but with absolutely zero irritation. Our pink algae is rich in beta carotene (a form of vitamin A) and it hails from a gorgeous bubblegum pink lagoon in western Australia. It’s a natural and non-irritating way to totally transform your skin. MODELISTE | JULY 2021 27

What are Josie Maran’s best-selling beauty products? Our newly launched Pro-Retinol Eye Cream! We had a waitlist of 2500 people after it sold out the first time. And our classic Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is always a fan favorite.. one jar is sold every 14 seconds! What are your summer skincare tips? A hydrating mineral SPF! Taking care of your skin is so important, especially when the UVA & UVB rays are in full effect. Take your time to apply Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 on the face, and Whipped Argan Oil SPF 45 Body Butter for everywhere else. And be sure to reapply every 2 hours. After a long day in the sun, replenish hydration with Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter and then lock in the moisture with 100% Pure Argan Oil. Favorite summer makeup trend? Less is always more during the summer heat, and glowing skin will be a big trend. We start by protecting our skin with one of our favorite SPFs, Argan Daily Moisturizing SPF 47 Protect + Perfect, and then finish it off with a multi-tasking Argan Color Stick on lips and cheeks. Any upcoming product launches you can share with us? We're always working on juicy, new innovations… look out for an extra-special edition of Whipped Argan Body Butter later this year, and some really rad innovations coming soon!

Upon the launch of Gemma Crowe’s stunning swimwear label, Infamous Swim, the fresh creations, modern unique, and colorful styles soon caught the eye of fashion lovers from all across the globe. The designer is clearly set for great things ahead as the line has grown in popularity with its celebrity sightings and as a poolside staple. Drawing inspiration from Instagram, where Gemma followed accounts where mommy’s and their adorable mini’s would coordinate swimwear, she speaks to Modeliste about her journey so far and the inspiration behind this must-have label the Summer. What is the story behind the creation of Infamous Swim? My passion for the Infamous & Mini Swim collection came about through Instagram. I am Instagram mad and adore the supportive communities of women built through the platform, not only for the divine imagery but the day-to-day conversations about kids, breastfeeding, husbands, working with kids - you name it, we discuss it! I have such a love for beautiful Instagram accounts where Mumma’s would match with their minis! It’s such a hit and I realised there was nothing in the market for complementary and highquality swimwear for mums to match with their kids. And so, my concept for Infamous & Mini Swim was born. What makes it so unique in the swimwear industry? Well, further to the above, I think what makes us really unique for a swimwear label is that we are major on body confidence/ positivity. Swimwear is typically a category that makes us feel insecure about our flaws, but at Infamous Swim we truly believe that women should be spiritually and emotionally nourished and feel good from the inside out no matter what stage of life they are in. As women, I believe our bodies are simply incredible and should be celebrated, and we promote that empowerment through my swimwear for ladies of all shapes and sizes. Our swim is for everybody. How would you describe it in 3 words? Fun, Positivity, Family. What are some of the top swimwear trends for 2021? The colour trends for the next Summer are an electrifying pink, a mango-like orange, a calming blue and a plant based, olive-like green. In styles we’re seeing more vintage shapes, think the full coverage or sculpted bikini top and high waisted bottoms (which we’ve been a huge fan of for years!).

What are the best selling styles? Our best selling print is definitely the Safari Leopard, for our wonderful customers leopard print is a basic, and the Gia and Ginger bikini sets are hands down the favourites. We’re sure it’s because most women feel supported, tucked in and, most importantly, fabulous. The Miranda and the Candice one pieces have also been a hit! How does Infamous Swim come up with new collections? My initial consideration is thinking through summer trends, colours and patterns for the coming year. This gets me ‘in the zone’ pretty quickly and from there I’ll sketch or play around with creative ideas. I’m a perfectionist, and the first range took around 8 months to bring to life. Each of our prints are hand-drawn designs. This part is a carefully curated process that includes sketching, colouring in with pencil, and scanning into a computerised program to make final edits and ensure our prints are picture perfect. As for inspiration, well, that comes from everything around me. Our beautiful Paradise print is a mix of the stunning Australian sunsets, my favorite color mint and a Monstera plant I see every day. What can people expect to see from Infamous Swim in 2021? We are constantly asked when are we going to bring out a tankini!.. so I’m working on this at the moment and will hopefully launch this year. We also have some more new prints, colours and textured fabrics in the works, they’re coming for this Summer, and a few more styles. Where does Infamous Swim get inspiration for their designs? We’re always listening to what customers are looking for, what they struggle with when looking for swimsuits, as well as our own design ideas looking through vintage archives, modern trends, and developing the styles that will suit our goal to suit every body. What would you like to say to your Infamous Swim fans? Thanks for the love! We wouldn’t be here without our amazing customers who have supported and encouraged us from the beginning, we can’t thank them enough for being such awesome people and really embracing our vibe. What will we love most about your latest collection? Our latest collection is our collaboration with Marcia Leone, @notsomumsy, …it’s a gorgeous take on animal print blended with the hibiscus flower. It’s somehow soft and subtle yet stunning, we’ve had so many amazing comments on it already, only a few weeks in.

20 Questions with ANNE WINTERS @annewinters Where are you from? I am originally from Dallas, Texas. What are three words you would use to describe yourself? Three words to describe myself: fun, adventurous, and talented. What’s your favorite movie? My favorite movie, Legally Blonde. That's what I'm trying to recreate right now. I don't know if you could tell. Favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is Christmas because I ... Hold on, I was chewing on a seed. Don't edit that out because that's funny. My favorite holiday is Christmas because I love Christmas lights and sparkly things, and Christmas is that. Dream place to travel? I want to go to Bali so badly. That's my next place I want to go. What’s your favorite memory? My favorite memory is winning my Emmy, which actually happened this day last year. So my mom just sent me a throwback photo of me winning my Emmy last year, today. Best memory ever! What’s your biggest weakness? My biggest weakness is I'm just such a hard worker. I feel like that's what everyone says in a job interview. No, I'm just kidding. I would say my biggest weakness for myself would be self-doubt or overthinking something, when realistically, I think I actually should think I'm really good at something and I'm really criticizing myself. So basically, I'm just awesome and I need to realize that. What’s your biggest strength? My biggest strength is once I start something or when I have my mind set to something, I go for it and I am great at it, no matter what it is. I know that no matter what I have my mind set to, I will do it well. When are you most inspired? I'm most inspired when I hang out with certain people that really motivate me. When I hang around a group of people or people that I admire work-wise or whatever, and hear their story or see some sort of success that I'm trying to achieve at that time, that's when I'm most inspired. Watching the Oscars and seeing a really great speech really inspires me.
What makes you smile the most? The first thing that came to my mind was my dog, because every time I see her, she's smiling already. I wake up and she's already smiling next to me. I don't know what it is, but she knows when I'm going to wake up and she's just sitting there. So she makes me smile probably the most during the day. But a lot of things make me smile. I'm a very happy person, so I just smile at a lot of things.
Any projects you're currently working on? Right now I'm working on The Orville. It's on Hulu. It's on its third season. I come in as a new character, her name is Charly Burke. She's really smart and bad-ass and she is the navigator on the ship and she has really cool storylines. I'm so excited!
Sweet or savory? I definitely like savory better, savory food over sweet. But at the same time, once I have enough savory things, I like sweet things.
So I don't know. That was the biggest thing I discovered, is what do I really want to do? And that's why I ended up optioning the book of Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes, which I'm producing, and it's going to be an MTV show which I'm really excited about. And without COVID, I probably wouldn't have had time to sit down, read a book, and think about where I wanted my career to go. So I'm really grateful for that. Obviously, it was a really hard time for everybody.
What is something you learned about yourself this past year during COVID-19 quarantine? During COVID I feel like it was just a learning experience for everybody. I was in What’s one thing people would be a relationship, and broke up during COVID. surprised to know about you? But not only that, I learned a lot about People would be surprised that I'm deaf in myself and yeah, I think it was a good time one ear. I've been deaf in my left ear since I for everyone to kind of really see what they was, I don't know, two, maybe younger. But I don't really say it that much unless it comes wanted to do. And since you have so much down to filming and they have the entire cast off time and you don't have to be anywhere on this side and I have to react to them on my and everyone's schedules are normally busy with other people putting a schedule in front left side, then I have to say something. But yeah, I'm actually deaf in my left ear and it's of you, I thought it was a really good time to been like that for a long time, so I don't really figure out, what do you want to do? Without a job in place, or this or that? know the difference.
What’s a song you can listen to on repeat? Blow Your Mind by Eve. It's like a really old pop 90s, 2000s song. And it's so freaking good. Any pop fun song that you heard in the early 2000s is my jam. What’s a top highlight in your career? A top highlight in my career would be winning the Emmy. But I would say, I don't know, anytime I find out I'm booking something. It's really just crazy. When I found out I booked “13 Reasons Why”, that was crazy. I jumped up and down for a good 20 minutes! It was fun. What’s your favorite time of day? My favorite time of day would be around 4:00 PM. I don't know why, but the morning's done, I get all of my errands done. I'm such a morning person so I wake up at 6:30, get everything done, and 4:00 PM is my winding down time. And then I go to bed really early. So 4:00 PM is my, if you want to hang out with me 5:00 maybe, let's go out. Let's have a drink. And then I'm probably going to go to bed. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared to try? One thing I've always wanted to do is skydive, but I'm really nervous to skydive. Everyone's done that though, so I don't know. I'm next, I know I am. I will skydive eventually, but yeah, not today.
Spirit Animal? Miley Cyrus. I freaking love her. And she was the one who inspired me, Hannah Montana, to be an actress. And she's not an animal, but I feel like she's kind of an animal in a way. We're all animals in a way. And she's just my spirit animal. Me and Miley Cyrus would be best friends. What would you like to say to your fans? I would love to say to my fans, thank you I would love to say to my fans, thank you guys so much for supporting me and following my journey. I love you guys and I want to meet you all. I have so many people that come up to me, and then people that don't message me, and they're all like, "Oh, I saw you and I didn't come up to you, I was so nervous." I'm like, "Come up to me!" So, if you see me on the streets, maybe in Puerto Vallarta or even in L.A., wherever it is, come up and say hi. Because I love you guys.

19 Questions with JORDAN OZUNA @ jirdyn Where are you from? So I am originally from Maryland, but I've really lived all over the place: in Europe, Guam, Hawaii, a bunch of different states. Kind of a nomad. I'm a nomad so the hardest question is, "where are you from?" What are three words you would use to describe yourself? Three words that I would use to describe myself are sarcastic and funny, at least I think I'm funny, and caring about people. What’s your favorite movie? My favorite movie is Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Favorite holiday? My favorite holiday is Christmas. Dream place to travel? My dream place to travel would have to be Cambodia. It's my number one. What’s your favorite memory? My favorite memory is when I went with my family to Thailand and Hong Kong for spring break back in high school. What’s your biggest strength? My biggest strength is I feel like I compartmentalize and I'm just a really strategic person. That's my biggest strength. When are you most inspired? I am most inspired in the morning. I like to wake up, listen to music and get my mind. I feel like that's when I'm most inspired. What makes you smile the most? My puppy, she makes me smile the most. What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I'm afraid of everything. I won't go on any roller coaster. I'm just the biggest scaredycat. Sweet or savory? I think I would pick sweet over savory. Beauty product you couldn’t live without? I cannot live without these freeze tools from Georgia Louise. And they just roll in your face every morning and they're the best thing in the entire world. I tell everybody to buy them. Keep them in your freezer, roll your face in the morning. 106 JULY 2021 | MODELISTE
What’s a song you can listen to on repeat? A song I can listen to on repeat is Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews band. That's my favorite song. What’s a top highlight in your career? I did a Calvin Klein campaign earlier this year and I feel like that was a top highlight. What’s your favorite time of day? My favorite time of day is early morning, I'm an early riser. When no one else is awake and you can just have a second to yourself. That's my favorite time. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared to try? I really would love to scoop it out, but I'm way too scared to actually try to do it. I feel like it would be cool. Any projects you're currently working on? Currently, I am working on trying to come out with a lounge wear resort wear line. That's coming soon. What is something you learned about yourself during COVID quarantine? Something that I learned about myself during COVID was that I enjoy being alone. I like my alone time, surprisingly. It made me a lot more centered and I just enjoyed being by myself. What’s your spirit animal? My spirit animal is a sloth. They're just tired and always chilling. They like being alone, they sleep, they're cute, they have long nails. My spirit animal.
