Cassie Talks ‘King of Hearts,’ Art School Aspirations and Dream Fashion Campaign


VV: What cities inspire your style?
Cassie: It’s got to be a tie between Tokyo and Paris. Tokyo used to be one of my favorite cities. I haven’t been there in so long, but I traveled there a lot on my first run in 2006 or 2007. We’re going to Paris on Friday (March 2) for fashion week, and it’s just inspiring. As soon as you land, you get the vibe in the environment, and you catch the flow. You just are automatically creative, and your outfits are way better I feel like.

Which celebrity would you make your “king of hearts”?
Anderson Cooper. I love Anderson Cooper. He’s always on CNN and I just watch him all the time. I’m joking though– I don’t know. You can put Anderson Cooper.

What celebrity closet would you like to raid?
Kate Moss or even Naomi Campbell because she’s probably got a lot of great stuff.

Can you name some of the top fashion do’s and don’ts and/or pet peeves?
I think that anything that you want to do fashion wise, it helps if you play “King of Hearts” while you’re getting dressed. You gotta play the record and you automatically will have good style [laughs]! I don’t really give people do’s and don’ts in fashion. It’s creative! You should be able to do whatever you want. Fashion is self-expression. I can’t ever hate on anybody’s self-expression.
