Serge meets Bee Beardsworth
Describe yourself in 3 words:
I like cats.
Describe your style in 3 words:
Expression of me.
How did you become a model?
I was scouted a few times, so I eventually decided to give it a shot and see what would happen.
What was it like shooting for Diesel?
Really sick. The whole shoot was based around rock & roll, and I wore a wig that was like Joan Jett’s mullet. All the outfits were leather and denim. And there was a black cat for some of the close-up shots. I love The Runways and old rock music, so it was pretty much the best Tuesday I’ve ever had.
You are also an artist, what/who inspires you to be creative?
I love art that has a strong impact and message behind it, art that makes you think. My favourite modern artists are Tracey Emin, Banksy, Damien Hirst and Robert Montgomery. For me, art is inspired by everything. Art isn’t separate from my life: it is parallel.
Who are your style icons?
David Bowie, Anna Dello Russo, Rihanna, and the Queen (seriously…Corgi swag).
What do you hope to be doing in 5 years time?
Doing what I want.
What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?
I love the long sleeved black top from the Harvey Nichols collection with the symbols on the left arm, and the new earrings with the crucifix hanging off them.
Where is your favourite spot in London?
The crystal and mineral room in the Natural History Museum.
Tell us something we don’t know?
I know all the words to ‘Fuckin’ Problem’ by A$AP Rocky.
