Her name is Susannah Liguori.
I like her short hair.
I found this picture in the magazine < POP>, photo shot by Tyrone Lebon. Extraordinarily beautiful.
Scouted by Hedi Slimane in LA.
18 years old.
A short interview about her in i-D:
Where are you from? What’s it like there? Los Angeles California. I live in a little hippie area in
the mountains with my mom on the coast. So I grew up going to the beach
loads and playing outside. We have five chickens, two dogs, a cat and two
Flemish bunnies (the fat kind named Theodor and Leonardo). All of our
animals kind of have a mutual agreement of civility towards one another so they
just hang out free in our backyard. They have a pretty sweet life I’d say.My
mom and I get fresh eggs every morning as well, which is an extra perk.
How were you scouted? Hedi Slimane found me and asked if I would cut off my hair (which was down
to my hips). I thought he seemed nice enough so I did. After shaving half of it
off we just started hanging out and making pictures this past summer on the beach
by my house… surfing, eating sandwiches… it was great and totally worth the
lost locks. To be honest I didn’t really know who he was until he signed on
with Saint Laurent Paris… I thought he was just some strangely creative French
man who thought I was cool so I didn’t really question his motives hahaha. He
was the first person to make me feel at ease with being photographed. He
understood my awkwardness and showed me how to embrace character rather than
insecurity. He’s an incredible artist.
