There was internet on my bus back from Boston last night, which led to loads YouTubing in place of much needed sleep. I found this - a really well made video of Erin Wasson circa 2008 working on Alex Wang's AW08 collection, dressing models, smoking cigarettes, talking about AMFAR and explaining her decision to document everything on video, "I have a really shitty short term memory and when I'm old with Alzheimer's I want to be able to like remember how dope and youthful I was." Hear, hear.
Erin Wasson Has Shamans Bless Her Body Wash and Other Revelations from Her Into the Gloss Profile
It's always a treat to get some insight into the lives of the world's most gorgeous women: Models are, more often than not, seen and seldom heard. We've had a hunch for some time now that Maybelline face Erin Wasson, who made the jump to the big screen in this summer's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, wasn't just your average model-cum-actress--and her new stream-of-consciousness profile on Into the Gloss more than proves our theory. From having a knack for identifying sexually active teen models to using body wash blessed by shamans, Wasson really isn't holding anything back on this one. And we're so, so happy about that: Who else can say she lets her craniosacral therapist swirl a finger around in her mouth? And loves it?
