New York Fashion Week is coming to a close, but we’re still catching up with celebs left and right. We got the chance to speak with Angela Simmons about her goth-inspired get-up backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2012 show.
What was your inspiration for tonight’s outfit?
It was just all about these shoes.
We’ve seen “Jesus pieces,” but I’ve never seen a crucifix-detailed clutch. How did you choose that?
It’s “Our Lord and Savior”!
You’re rocking a serious dark lip tonight, who made that?
This is Nars. It’s actually a lip pencil. It’s their “Velvet Matte Lip Pencil” in Train Bleu.
Who is your style icon?
I really look up to Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs & Tom Ford, designers that have successful innovative lines. And Rachel Roy! She’s amazing. I’ve really been watching her, she’s like a mentor to me.
What’s the best advice she’s given you?
So many things, but basically she told me something like this: the more you learn, the less you know. There’s always something to learn no matter where you’re at. It’s constant.
What’s new with Pastry?
We’re always expanding Pastry. We have the Varsity Collection out right now and it’s doing really well!
We also caught up with Angela at the Charlotte Ronson runway show!
