Today, I want to introduce you Annie. She is one of the most gentle souls I've ever met. Aside from being a muse for numerous photographers and fashion brands, Annie is also a very talented astrologist, jewelry designer, and photo collagist. After meeting Annie in person, we spent a few days collaborating and creating photo essays depicting her beautiful soul.  Below you will find the result of our collaborations and interview with Annie.

INTERVIEW

“Trust the universe” and “follow your heart, it will never lead you astray.”

What is your passion?

I have always been obsessed with art. I make jewelry and have a line called Pure Designer Jewelry which I created after I went to a silversmithing trade school in Portland. I also love photography, painting, and design. It’s important for me to keep up a spiritual practice as well - so I try to prioritize meditation and prayer. 

 

Where are you from? What are your roots?

 I was born in Northern CA, very close to San Francisco. My mother is full Russian, although she was born in America- 1st generation and my father is predominately English. 

 

What relaxes you?

A nice hot bath with candles, sitting at my altar, relaxing with a friend and drinking wine... any of those things. 

 

Do you eat a lot or you have a special diet?

I really love food and yes I tend to eat a lot. haha. I eat tons of veggies, salads, eggs, and fish. My favorite food is Indian. I absolutely love curry and spices. Have a sweet tooth as well, and I am crazy about dark chocolate, but I try to keep that to a minimum ;-) 

 

Share with us some of your favorite food recipes, well if you have any?

Eggs over easy on gluten-free toast with a side of sauteed kale and half of an avocado - probably my favorite go-to meal that I have not gotten sick of.  

 

The interview is continued after the editorial "You Are My Alien Bride"

Can you give us some beauty tips, how do you keep your skin in such a flawless condition?

Well, my skin is far from flawless but I do take really good care of it. I wash and moisturize every evening before going to bed and exfoliate at least once a week. I also wear nice mineral makeup and drink lots and lots of water.  

 

What were doing before modeling?

Making jewelry, living in Portland Oregon, living in Washington State in the forest, living at a commune in California... haha, many things. 

 

Who are the main supporters in your life?

My parents are my number one supporters. I am so fortunate to have a Mom and Dad who believe in me so strongly. But really my whole family is incredibly supportive. All my aunties are amazing and I’m also blessed with having exceptional lifelong friends. 

 

What is your life motto? your favorite quote?

“Trust the universe” and “follow your heart, it will never lead you astray”  

 

Which model, designer or artist inspires you the most?

My favorite artist is Ellen Rogers. Her photography opened my eyes and inspired my creative process in a truly monumental way. Her work continues to amaze and inspire me. 

 

What kind of music do you enjoy?

I love many types of music- almost everything- rock 'n' roll, folk, electronic, oldies- and I love to dance. 

 

Are you a fashionista at all?

Do you have any favorite brands/designers? Yes, I would have to say I am :-) not really obsessed with designers or anything, but certainly, love clothing and love putting ensembles together.  My closet is full of Free People and AllSaints, my mother’s vintage jackets and band tees and designer consignment find. I wear a lot of neutral colors, creams, ivories, charcoals, and blacks. I’ve always kind of stuck to that color palette. I love leathers and fur, ripped lace and Jeffrey Campbell boots.
