Lauren London as a modern-day Bianca Jagger? Why not?
Our June cover Vixen channeled the 70s model and activist for a updated spin on that rockstar lifestyle. Draped in everything from Catherine Malandrino and Tom Ford to Opening Ceremony and Manolos, L-Boogie suited up for her a few–we’re totally being modest here–dope shots. Press play for Lauren’s super cute (and kickass) BTS interview, and check out LL’s beauty must-haves and summer style forecast below.
VIBE Vixen: Tell me about your beauty regimen? What are some of your must-haves?
Lauren London: I have to have MAC spiked [eyebrow pencil] and bronzer.
I know you’re hiding some beauty secrets, too.
[Laughs] As long as your eyebrows are clean and you have a clean face, you’re good to go.
Any style trends you’re anxious about or that you want to die this summer?
I’m really over everyone wearing Jordan’s, even though I wear Jordans [Laughs]. But I’ve been wearing Jordans since ’92. I really want everyone to put it away.
You don’t believe the girls rocking J’s are real Jordan heads?
No. I just feel like there are certain girls that never have worn them before.
Now, the photo shoot was very 70s inspired. How does that style era influence you today?
It influences everything. I love anything inspired by the 70s, from the music to the clothes. Capricorn has this joke that I dress like Stevie Nicks.
What celebrity or influences out there are killing the style trends across the board?
I love anything Cameron Diaz. Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham. I like Halle’s style. Charlize, she’s effortless. But I dress more like Drew Barrymore. I want Rachel Zoe’s closet
Who doesn’t? Who are your top 3 favorite designers?
Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and McCartney.
If you could design a shoe collection or fashion line, with whom would you want to collab?
