Edie Campbell is the face of H&M Studio A/W15 campaign, has a brilliant mind and rides a horse named Armani. Meet the girl who made the mullet stylish.

When Edie Campbell was 15 years old, family friend Mario Testino shot her for Vogue. The legendary photographer also helped her land her first campaign, for Burberry. To say she was off to a good start would be an understatement. 

Edie Campbell’s almost-a-decade long career has been a mega success. And in between the Vogue covers, Dior and Lanvin campaigns (her whole family, including Dolly the horse, starred in the latter), Saint Laurent runways and Marc Jacobs beauty contracts, Edie Campbell has also found the time to finish her degree in art history and compete with her horses (no, she didn’t name them herself). 

Luckily for us, the British model also spends her time Instagramming – her account is one of the best in fashion.

The H&M Studio A/W15 collection drops today (hurry up and get it!  www.hm.com/hm-studio-aw15), and while we had Edie Campbell on the campaign set, we asked her to share some of her top model secrets. 

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…
”To work with: Steven Meisel, Tim Walker and David Sims.”

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT WAS…
”A two-week trip with Tim Walker to Myanmar.”

THE SONG OR ARTIST WHO ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
”Oh that's too difficult – the music has to set the mood so it totally depends what you're shooting. It could be anything from Mazzy Star to Madonna.”

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS...
”Writing.”

MY MODEL ICON IS…
”I think Kate Moss, because she looks like she is having soooo much more fun than anyone else.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS…
”Learn from the pros – less is more, and contouring is weird.”

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY…
”Riding horses, swimming and boxing.”

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX, I…
”I have needed many a hair fix and none of them have been quick!! But one of the best things I've found is Philip Kingsley’s [hair mask] Elasticizer for when my hair has been really fried.”

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS…
”Riding horses. They're the best leveller.”

MY SECRET TALENT IS…
”I wish I had one.”

MY FAVOURITE OFF-DUTY LOOK IS…
"Marques’Almeida ideally… But also jeans and R.M. Williams boots and a threadbare t-shirt.

”Rockins silk scarves.”

THE BEST BEAUTY TIP I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
”Curl your eyelashes, sleepyhead!” 

MY FAVOURITE HOTEL IS…
”I like the Marlton in New York.”

FOR A LONG FLIGHT, I ALWAYS PACK…
”Earplugs! For fear of snorers or babies.”

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME, I…
”Go to an exhibition and sleep during the day!”

THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
”What's the worst that could happen?”

MY FAVOURITE THING TO SHOP WHEN I AM AWAY IS…
”I've gotta say, I'm not a huge shopper.”

BEING A MODEL, I’VE LEARNT...
”That everybody has to make creative compromises, everything takes a really long time, and to try and be memorable.”

POST-MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO…
”Ride and write.”

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS…
Twin Peaks.”

RIGHT NOW I AM READING...
