Q&A's Interview by JILL WINKLER
What inspired you to get into acting? I was an only child so I used my imagination a lot. I moved around because my dad was in the Navy, so I would just adapt to my environment and become different people everywhere I moved. Sometimes I didn't bother to even make friends. I would just watch people and be really weird and shy.
Our cover star, Kiersey Clemons, is imbued with a particularly playful charm, along with a mischievous eccentricity that has made her one of the the most standout actresses of the year. Modeliste sat down with Kiersey on-set and this is what we learned about this starlet's rise to stardom and what this year has in store.
What was one of the first roles you ever were cast in? I think that one of the first roles I was cast in and was most proud of was Dope. How long have you been acting since you got your role in Dope? I've been acting overall for eight years, but I did theater before that. So basically, the majority of my life. What made Dope so special? The entire overall experience is what made Dope so special, it was essentially the love that we had for each other. That sounds so cheesy. The success that we had, and didn't know we were going to have was amazing. It was kind of our first time, all of us, even Rocky and Chanel, none of us had done something like that before. Could you feel it in your heart, that something that you guys were creating was special? No. I don't feel that you always feel when you're making something special. It's rare for that to happen. For the most part, you know that there's a lot of movies that go unnoticed that are really good. That kind of happened to Dope. It wasn't until it was streaming online that a lot of people saw it and liked it.
You have a lot of movies coming out this year. Tell us about the Only Living Boy in New York that's coming out in August. Only Living Boy in New York is the first movie that I made with people that I looked up to. I've work with lots of other great people previously, but not people like Jeff Bridges and obvious Cynthia Nixon. When I think about filming a movie in New York, I think that it's like Sex in the City. Tell us about the shoot today. What was your favorite look? In my shoot today with Modeliste, we did a lot of dresses but I loved the pantsuit, the blazer and the pants. It looked kind of like a romper and it was really sophisticated and sexy. The designer of the pantsuit was Fosto. It falls on my body really nicely which is hard to find for my body shape. I'm always a really big fan of that because it's rare. You are also a very talented singer. Who or what inspired you to pursue music? I think it was mostly my mom and my grandma. A lot of people in my family sing, not professionally, but they can all carry a tune. How long have you been singing for? I've been singing kind of my whole life, but I probably started in primarily when I was in musical theater. That's where I learned the most and I was 14. Can we expect any music from you soon? I'm going to release music soon. I always record stuff and then I listen to it too much so I start to hate it. I just have to trust myself and hopefully something comes out this year.
What's your sound? What's your vibe? My vibe in music is probably feel good. It's not a genre, but it feels good. You can listen to it in the morning or in the car, or whatever. How would you describe your fashion style? I would describe my fashion style as relaxed and clean sometimes. What inspires you fashion-wise? I think my sister inspires me most. She's really thrifty and creative. I think there are a lot of women that are shaped like me. I find a lot of them on Instagram and blogging and stuff--I like that a lot. Who are some of your favorite designers that design for women of your curviness? I wear a lot of DVF because Jonathan Saunders is the new Creative Director. I love the way that their dresses fall on my body. I mean, DVF is made for, and caters to curvy women and hourglass figures and so obviously they still kept that. I really appreciate it. What are the three things that you can never leave the house withoutnot including your wallet or phone. I was going to say my wallet. I cannot leave the house without my giant jug of water, probably a tinted chapstick, and I think a hat. I always have a hat.
It's one of the first photos that pops up on Google. I got to get it taken down so hard. What is your favorite late night treat? Oh, my favorite late night treat is probably those little brownie bites that you can get at like Ralph's. Those are so good. You think you can have one, but eat the whole box. Oh yeah. Okay back to acting. Kiersey: Okay. Those brownie bits though... I’m still thinking about them! Tell us about your upcoming role in the Only Boy in New York. What did you find most challenging playing this part? In Only Living Boy in New York, I play a girl named Mimi. She's in school and likes to write and read. She's very intelligent and artistic. I play opposite Callum Turner and I think it was both of our first experience like that. It was nice to kind of lean on each other and be like, “I'm nervous!” Working with all the people that we did, they're all very respectable and I think we really looked up to them. You have a lot of movies coming out this year! Yeah.
Beyond, Only Living Boy in New York, tell us about what we can expect to see for the rest of the year. In the Fall, I have Flatliners coming What types of accessories do you out which is a sequel to the original gravitate to when putting together an that came out in the 90s.

I was maybe 18 and I just had on way too much bronzer all over my face.
GET KIERSEY'S COVER LOOK #Hairspiration
Kiersey Clemons showed off some bold and beautiful styles in this month’s issue, but if there’s one thing we’re still swooning over, it’s Kiersey’s dreamy, unstructured tousled Cover look. We have the inside scoop on how you can recreate this look at home with just a few simple steps and our favorite Mixed Chicks products.
1. Start by using Conditioning Cleansing Co-Wash -- This creamy, no lather cleanser is a revitalizing shampoo alternative that uses jojoba and castor oils to restore strength and flexibility for easy detangling. 2. Apply a small amount of Leave In Conditioner, one of their most popular products to tame frizz while nourishing your hair. 3. Morning After Redefining Foam is another favorite if youâ€™re pressed for time. No need to rewash, instead apply 3 â€“ 4 pumps to energize those curls and reshape, redefine, boost next day hair. 4. Apply a dime-size amount of Daily Hair Dress throughout to smooth hair, add shine and eliminate frizz. This avocado, almond, and safflower oil infused creation rejuvenates dry, brittle hair by adding continuous moisture and repairing split ends.
5. Next apply 2-3 drops of Coil, Kink & Curl Styling Cream. This cream uses six nourishing oils to help hair retain moisture while making styling easy. 6. Divide hair into sections. Using a blow dryer, directionally blow dry hair toward the back of the head to create a flattened texture. Once dry, straighten the hair using a 1-inch flat iron to further smoothen. 7. Rub a small amount of Slick Styling Tamer in your hands to easily tame fly aways and create a sleek and sophisticated style. 8. For more defined curls, apply Curl Sculptor which light curl definer uses pro vitamin B5 for a weightless, fast drying formula that’s perfect for a natural style or free-flowing look. 9. Finish with Styling Gel for added hold with a lightweight, airy finish. This no flake defining gel works to add thickness and texture while holding hair firmly in place
WHY WE LOVE MIXED CHICKS Mixed Chicks was launched by two "mixed chicks" on a mission to create a product line to meet the unique demands of the multicultural woman. They've turned a dream into a reality, providing women of different ethnicities with hair care and makeup products that embrace and celebrate their diversity.

Now, they’re excited to announce the expansion of their problem solving brand with an all new collection of curl defining and styling products. “We’ve embraced a variety of textures to help solve special haircare woes,” said co-founder Kim Etheredge. “Our new products can help anyone achieve the styles they want using the techniques they love.” Incorporating extra penetrating oils and vitamins to deliver hydration and shine to every strand, Mixed Chicks is making it even easier for everyone to obtain the styles they love with less fuss and frustration. 26

HOW TO GET A PERFECT FAKE TAN The ultimate head-to-toe guide to getting a flawless, faux glow.
Modeliste Lust-Have Tanceuticals
A beautiful bronze glow can wipe years off your complexion while even have contouring effects that can trim inches from your waistline. But if you want to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun (i.e., wrinkles, brown spots, or, worse, skin cancer), the only safe glow is a faux glow. Our favorite products from Tanceuticals are formulated to look natural, dry quickly, show up instantly and give you the ultimate fake without the bake tan. Tanceuticals offers the world’s best self-tanning with powerful anti-aging skin care benefits. With breakthrough ingredients like Argan Oil, Acai Berry and Shea Butter , Tanceuticals Moisturizes and Nourishes Dry Skin, Evens and Smooths Skin, Protects Against and Repairs Premature Aging while Minimizes Appearance of Wrinkles. It allows you to create a perfect healthy natural glow.
How does it work: Put on a little Tanceuticals lotion at night and 6-8 hours later you wake up with a gorgeous, natural-looking tan that doesn't wash off. And you never spend a second in the sun or a tanning bed! Tanceuticals realized there is a real need to merge skin care with self tanning to make it part of every woman’s daily beauty routine. The better your skin looks, the better your tan looks and by detoxifying cells and boosting hydration, creating a better looking, longer lasting more natural tan.

The Ultimate Sunless Tanning Tips:
1. Legs are the secret weapon of beauty and sunless tanners can make legs rock. Experiment with different shades, frequency and amount of product use to create shimmering legs that turn heads, and make you ‘walk tall’. 2. Do not exfoliate right before you use a sunless tanner. Your skin contains important amino acids which help the tan develop completely and evenly on your skin. If you aggressively exfoliate right before applying sunless tanner you strip-away the amino acids and the tan can develop unevenly. It's better to exfoliate the night before. 3. Never go more than one shade darker than your natural skin tone, or you risk looking orange or like you have a fake tan. 4. To get rid of that tell-tale selftanner smell, spritz the lotion with your favorite perfume before applying. You will smell and look great too!

LABELS WE LOVE Giuseppe di Morabito
giuseppedimorabito.com Instagram: giuseppedimorabito_official Facebook: giuseppedimorabitoofficial Connect with us: email@example.com
Giuseppe di Morabito positively celebrates the beauty, sensuality, and power of women.
Born in a small town in Calabria, a region of Southern Italy, Giuseppe Di Morabito’s innovative designs, rich with colors, textures and shapes reminiscent of the region, has not only won the attention of the global fashion community, but has already won him numerous accolades including being the Italian women's wear nominee for the 2016/17 International Woolmark prize. Slip into a ruffled silk dress, or a jacquard coat printed with resplendent florals and even the most steadfast minimalist won’t fail to be romanced by the uplifting verve and sheer sex appeal of the clothes. Indeed, to wear Giuseppe di Morabito is to wear femininity at its prettiest, most powerful, inspirational and seductive. Describe the overall concept of the product line. My line is characterized by Made in Italy tailoring, special fabric designs and sophisticated embroideries. The brand’s style plays with a sense of elegant bizarreness: the art of tailoring takes different shapes and forms: the garments – in fact – vary from readyto-wear to more sophisticated ones. The collections target a young female public, who rejects overblown and pure classical ideals of femininity. The brand’s clients are in search for high quality materials; they look for aesthetic values in what they are wearing. The brand respects and includes tradition, yet it renews and modernises it collection by collection. The artistic value of Giuseppe di Morabito’s collections lies in the in depth study and interpretation of historical and visual elements. He believes in the encounter between past and present standards of beauty. What makes it so unique and innovative in the industry? I do my best to create a good collection, high-quality pieces with the right price on the market. We offer a range of pieces made of original jacquards, embroideries and fabrics designs. Everything comes from the atelier team working with me. Our strategy is that of offering sophisticated and precious pieces with lower prices than those offered by the high fashion market. What inspired you to create the line? I usually start by looking at elements from visual cultures. I am an art lover. I like to take references from different period of history, particularly from the antiquity. I grew up in the south of Italy where historical sites and antique architectures surround you all the time. I am still affected by that.
History influences my style both in terms of aesthetics and handcrafting techniques. Moreover, I like to discover new trends coming from different part of the world. I do my best to make different kind of beauty coexist. I mix elements coming from different aesthetic scheme. This is why I like to work with people who have background in art history, graphic design, or generally outside the fashion system. I really believe that a various environment helps me create the right synergy to design something original and different. Tell us about your latest collection. In the Fall Winter 2017 I tried to make tangible the relationship between the pre-Raphaelite aesthetic, the British artistic movement of the 19th century, and the stylistic trends that are drastically changing the world of high fashion today, making it increasingly closer with the street-reality. What do you see as the top Fall 2017 fashion trends? I personally don’t believe in trends anymore. I think that – nowadays – designers express themselves freer than how they used to do in the past. People demands distinctiveness. Are there any rules to fashion you live by? Break them. Overcome your limits as soon as you believe it is the right moment to do it. Best advice you've ever received. Giuseppe: Do not deny yourself. In other words, be who you are. Fashion Icons? Peggy Guggenheim, Franca Sozzani Fall Must-Haves Floral Jacquard coats
What's next for the line? What can we be on the lookout for? I am working on many things. I hope you are going to be surprised by the next collections. Why you love Modeliste Magazine. I like the way it connects new up and coming stars with the public. It provides a unique and fresh perspective on people who are going to be huge stars.

Money will become a driving force or concern. There may be money coming from inheritances or trusts. Along with financial side of things, some of you may become increasingly interested in the study of occult matters, psychology or the greater mysteries of life and death. The month finds you sitting pretty in the realm of romance, perhaps with the perfect someone to share your throne. The fabulousness is practically overwhelming, as you’re showered with attention and dishing it right back out to someone wonderful.
You will come to know yourself in a new and different way. It will be worth the effort for those of you who make it. You may need to study or withdraw from more familiar landmarks or reference points to make the transition. You’re likely to be self-involved this month, but it’s a necessary process. Career offers come now, and money owed to you could also arrive, particularly in the last week of the month. Your successes in June might spark a bit of a competitive frenzy among your peers, but you’ll end up ahead.
AQUARIUS VALENTINO Necklace $645 valentino.com
You set out to accomplish your chosen goals and will find ways to succeed usually by using your wit and charm. You will make fortunate connections through travel, educational opportunity, promotion at work or just a more expansive social round. You promote peace and harmony, and usually opt to bypass hostile confrontations whenever some other method can be employed. This month invites fresh, exciting new energy into your love life. Be open and let it in no matter what unusual form it may take, and be ready for almost anything to happen.
The first two weeks are good for smoothing over differences in your career and also for dealing with reputation issues. Professional or personal opportunity, overseas travel, higher education and connections with important people may play a part in a cycle of growth. Just make sure the expansion confines itself to your horizons. Someone you've been working with may depart from your work environment or you may find yourself in contact with someone you've worked with in the past. This could come about unexpectedly and may involve a person of opposite sex.
You may start working towards important long term financial goals. You may shed old obligations or connections with joint dealings and move into new ones. There may be dealings with experienced financial operators. There may be a landmark change with family finances or the family constellation, especially one involving older people. Past loves can reappear, whether they do so in the flesh or memories fill your mind. You’ll need to show off how flexible you are as big changes try to sweep you away.

GEMINI This month will bring a deepening of your inner life and an expansion of your inner horizons that will, in time, fit you for a new journey in the outer world. Circumstances urge you to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It’s time to let go of some of your fears and to develop more compassion and understanding of others. You may impatiently discard what doesn't serve you in your new search. Make sure the impatience quotient isn't too high.
This is a time to talk, to make connections, to teach, be taught and to pursue new dreams and ventures, especially those where the fellowship of others is involved. The support or assistance of friends is invaluable and you may have fortunate or opportune encounters or meet with unusual people. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. In general, help seems to be there when you need it.
Your luck will be amazing. More often than not, you’ll end up in the right place at the perfect time. This period can mark a time of success in which endings or closure will play an important part. Take the advice of those you trust and focus on your goals. A new stream of life with a partner or close associate may begin. Singles may find themselves in a close association. You may set out on a new course that changes the substance of what you have been doing with others.
You are called to the paths of wisdom. You will need to study the big picture and make abiding decisions about where your life is going. You may study to advance your beliefs and your knowledge. You may wish to break the shackles of routine existence. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and more attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems. Things develop at an exponential rate in romance sprinkling liberally with happy days and increasingly hot nights.
It will be important for you to explore new options with regard to work, training or education and healthcare. Meeting new people or coming into new situations will open the road ahead. There may be overseas travel, higher learning, important litigations or dealings with people of status. Your ability to conduct yourself well, overcome obstacles with persistence and take on responsibility will open the way to a new phase of life. A romantic affair may undergo deep, rewarding changes and can be more growth-oriented, forward-looking, and enthusiastic.
Good luck will flow your way naturally. You are in your element, and others tend to be taking note. You will be able to advance your situation through good planning and the cooperation of others. The development of a close knit community or family group may contribute. Some might establish new friendships through work, and others might find work through a friend. Your perceptiveness and natural knack for connections, along with your subtlety and diplomacy, mean that you can easily assist those who tend more toward floundering in the realm of romance.
During this month, you may need to invest more time and energy then you feel you’ve got in your career and your group affiliations. You’ll reap the rewards via a public display of gratitude. This can also be a time when work and friendships are tied together. The key to fulfillment is to recognize and honor your spiritual path as well as your need for alone time and reflection, but to avoid neglecting your responsibilities in the process. Increasingly, you’re finding the need to bring more creativity and less routine to your career.
