One on One with a Model: Charlotte McKinney Interview

We’ve been away. But we’re back. We’ve been working in the cave and we’ve got some special things on the way, trust us. Firstly, after discovering Charlotte McKinney through Instagram, we hit her up and asked if she’d wanna jump on our interview series – luckily for us – she did. It’s not hard to see why McKinney is been dubbed as the new Kate Upton – she’s everywhere right now from GUESS to Terry Richardson’s studio. We caught up with her last week:

How did you get discovered?

I didn’t really get discovered for a while I was just doing everything on my own but recently Paul Marciano contacted me a GUESS shoot and that’s definitely helped my modelling career a lot more.

What’s been your proudest moment so far?

Proudest moment would definitely have to be GUESS, it’s been my dream since I was young to be a GUESS girl. I’ve done a few ads but have more to come with them and I’m really looking forward to it.

Who would be your dream photographer to work with?

Dream photographer to shoot with would be Walter Loose. I’ve loved his work with Sports Illustrated back in the day and his recent stuff.

Who would be your dream brand to work for?

Dream brand to me would just being in Sports Illustrated. It’s been my bible for years and I think I’d be a great match for it too.

Do models inspire you?

Yes models inspire me to keep going when I see others getting big jobs and campaigns, it makes me want to work harder.

Favourite city in the world?

Probably Miami because I’m from Florida and I LOVE the beach there and the nightlife is always fun.

Away from modelling how do you spend your time?

I spend my free time shopping and dinners ha but one of my favourite hobbies is hot yoga and working out. If I had to stop modelling I’d just exercise it keeps me healthy and I love it.

Favourite album this year?

Has to be Nothing Was The Same by Drake, can’t go wrong – love his lyrics and it’s good for any occasion.

If you had to spend $100,000 in one day, what would you do?

If I had 100K to blow I’d probably get a white Porsche and spend the day on Rodeo Drive give some to homeless people too while shopping.

Are you constantly getting hit on?

Yes pretty much always getting hit on it can be annoying at times but sometimes I feel bad and have to give them credit because it takes balls to just walk upto some chick.

Where can we find you on social media?

You can find me on Instagram and Twitter!

Thanks guys xxxxo
