Bad Boy’s leading lady Cassie chopped it up with Forever 21 in a recent photo shoot for her new campaign and revealed a few interesting tidbits about herself. Did you know she was submerged into freezing water for the shoot and that she’s dying to collaborate with Lana Del Rey? Check out the behind the scenes pictures of her profiling on the streets of L.A. and read what she had to say about style, palm trees, and why her shaved head doesn’t define her.
What five words pop into my head when I think of LA?
Sunshine, palm trees, ocean, studio, and… Disneyland!
What did you enjoy about the FOREVER LA Shoot?
I knew I was going to get partially in the water, but I didn’t know how much. I was actually submerged in it! What made me feel really good though was that everybody got in the water. Everybody was soaking wet head to toe. I felt like we all came together.
What was your favorite outfit at the shoot?
I really liked the look where I was on the bike that reminded me of Mr. Cartoon and I had the lace veil. That was a really cool look!

What was your most memorable F21 shopping trip?
I had the best Forever 21 shopping experience when I was in New York and me and my best friends went crazy. It’s a best friend store! I think we bought a lot of the same clothes: t-shirts and print leggings.
Who are your style influences?
The music industry has definitely influenced my style. I’ve taken more chances. Be it my hair or how baggy I want to wear my pants, I’m inspired by so many other artists and people. So when I see something I like, I like to try it in my own way.
Who do you want to work with?
Collab I’m dying to do…I LOVE Lana Del Rey! I love the way she writes and her swag.
Who is your style icon?
Kate Moss. She’s just so effortless.
Why did you shave your head?
I had long, big curly hair for so many years and I just wanted to try something different. I actually didn’t have the intentions of shaving so much hair but when I went there I wanted to go all the way and kind of land in punk. The next day I woke up and I was like “OMG, what did I do?!” but slowly over the next few weeks got more comfortable in it. Your hair doesn’t define you. Wear your hair how you feel.
