There’s a story behind every outfit, and a few days ago we were lucky enough to have our very own Lauren Johnson share some of her style secrets with us. Thrift store shopping is essential- she hunts down gorgeous vintage pieces then mixes and matches them with her favorite brands. Growing up, she learned a lot from her Grandmother, who taught her to take pride in doing things herself. To this day she still creates the pottery she used to make with her (her backpack is her pottery bag!) and creates her own clothing, like the undershirt worn in this outfit. Lauren says her Granny is the perfect example of a strong woman, and we couldn’t agree more based on this GirlBoss outfit! Keep scrolling to check out Lauren’s personal style.

How’d you start modeling?

I was an actress, new to LA, and was looking for fun work. So, I went to an open call… here I am.

Who/ what are your biggest inspirations?

Frida Khalo, Tempest Storm and the lovely Mother Earth.

Favorite modeling experience, so far & why?

Working for Clinique with JUCO was a favorite. Beauty modeling is more my zone.

Tell us some of your modeling goals. Any particular brands you’d love to model for?

I am looking to interweave my love for modeling, whacking and vogueing for a major brand. I love Milk Makeup, Adidas, & Gucci Resort.

Describe your personal style. How do you typically dress on your days off?

I always gravitate to clothes I can move in easily. Personally, I love costume pieces, pastels and feminine fits with a boyish appeal.

What’s your favorite fashion trend of the moment?

Not big on trends, but I think anyone in the world can rock a choker.

What are some of your favorite beauty products?

Glossier is great all around. I also love Mario Badescu Rose Facial Spray and Moroccanoil for all hair care needs.

We know you’ve gotta take care of your figure, but what’s your favorite “cheat meal”?

My cheat meal is vegan chicken strips served on the UCLA campus after 9pm. It’s always a little challenge, but oh so worth it.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I’ve been listening to Wanda Jackson, The Buttertones and always the Bee Gees.

Favorite TV show/ movie?

Don’t have favorites, but I love The Eric Andre Show. Also a Czech movie I recently discovered, called To The Stars By Hard Ways; very intimate and ethereal.

What’s your biggest pet peeve & why?

Inconsideration… people need to care about others’ well being more.

Something you love to do in your spare time?

I love dancing and conceptualizing grand performances in my garden.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I was my school’s mascot, the K.O. cougar.

What valuable lessons have you learned from the industry, thus far? Any advice for other aspiring models?

It is far more attractive to have an inner beauty about yourself that compliments your outer appearance. Most of the time, you don’t know what a client is looking for (sometimes, they don’t even know, themselves) so just be the maximum you and your chances are better than if you embrace someone else.

All around LA, we are celebrating some cool weather (at last!). After seasons in hiding, our favorite well-worn boots and comfy sweaters make a main-stage appearance, and if you’re anything like us you’re looking to snag a new outfit or two. Luckily for us, Alex Ghantous recently shot with Koolaburra‘s creative team– and the result is comfy-cute inspo to last us for the rest of the winter season. Life gets a lot easier in the mornings when you can slip on a pair of classic short Koolaburra’s, a ribbed beanie, and a luxurious Lillie sweater. With Christmas season approaching, we’ve definitely added at least one of these items to our wishlist. Keep scrolling to see how Alex wears her Koolaburra’s!
