TOP MODEL SECRETS: DEVON WINDSOR

Devon Windsor: ”Ignore the haters and do you”

Rising star Devon Windsor talks life advice, food and belly dancing in this week’s Top Model Secrets.

Loved by both edgy magazines and commercial brands, Devon Windsor is well on her way of becoming one of fashion’s most sought-after models. The St. Louis native started modelling in high school, but waited until graduation to pursue a full-time career. She got her big break back in 2013 when Prada selected her as an exclusive for their Spring 14 show – and dyed her hair platinum blonde during fittings, a shade that since has become Windsor’s signature look. 

An H&M favourite too (this past spring, she starred in one of H&M’s major campaigns and walked in the H&M Studio A/W16 show in Paris), we jumped at the chance to learn some of her secrets. Some more expected – we knew she’s a major foodie – than others. Read on to learn more about Devon Windsor. 

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER?
”Mario Testino. I have yet to work with him but it has always been my dream to. He captures the sexuality as well as the power of women so well while also having an edge that I absolutely love. His work is timeless.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT WAS…
”My second Victoria’s Secret fashion show. It was the first time I got wings to wear in the show and I had been fitting my outfit for five months leading up to it! Walking that runway was absolutely amazing!”

My model icon is Cindy Crawford. She's so strong and beautiful but also a great role model too.

THE MUSIC THAT ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
”Rihanna. I love her music. It's super upbeat, fun and sexy.”

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS…
”Definitely cooking. I love to bake as well. I just moved in New York and I finally have a decent kitchen to cook in. It's super relaxing and calms me down.”

MY MODEL ICON IS…
”Cindy Crawford. She's so strong and beautiful but also a great role model too. I miss the generation of the supermodel.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS…
”Sleep! I sleep at least 8 hours every night. Especially if I'm working the next day. Gets rid of dark circles and puffiness.”

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY…
”Mixing Pilates with body weight training a couple of times a week!”

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX I…
”I put my hair in a high bun.”

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS…
”Eating yummy food.”

MY SECRET TALENT IS…
“The belly roll.”

I SMELL LIKE…

WHEN I AM AWAY…
”I love shopping for bags when I'm in different cities.” 

BEING A MODEL I'VE LEARNT...
”That there will always be someone who doesn't like you or has something bad to say. Ignore the haters and just do you. ”

POST MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO…
”Have a family and build a brand either in swimwear or bags.” 

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS…
”[Food Network’s] Chopped Junior and Bones. 

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS…
”To enjoy the ride. I don't ever want to be doing something that I'm unhappy doing. Life is short. Also to go to every single country.”
