Model Mayhem: Erin Wasson, the Free Spirit

The fifth in our series of 5 models who bucked the system and rose to the top

In honor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, we’re recognizing some of the most restless, nonconformist supermodels that ever marched down a runway.

Erin Wasson has your typical rebel traits in spades: She’s adorned with tattoos, curses like a sailor, and chain-smokes Parliaments. A standout among even the most distinctive of her peers, the native Texan won a Kim Dawson Agency model-search contest at the age of 15. Soon after, she was posing in campaigns for Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and Céline; storming runways for Balenciaga, Gucci, and Armani; and appearing on multiple international Vogue covers. A skateboarding tomboy who loves basketball, Wasson has remained true to her uncensored personality. “I have too much going on in my brain to just be a face, an image, without a voice behind it,” she has said. As a muse and then stylist for Alexander Wang, she helped cultivate his gritty “off-duty model” aesthetic, and her successful jewelry line, Low Luv, is made in the image of her wild-child style.

Why She’s a Rebel: Wasson’s philosophy: “I just believe, as totally ‘hippie bullshit’ as that sounds, anything’s possible if you’re willing to grab it and make it your own.” That includes straying from the high-fashion pack. Wasson is vocal about her conviction that clothes don’t need to be expensive to be cool, and began a collaboration last fall with Rockport shoes.

Most Defiant Moment: At the age of 17, Wasson took a break from her career and hopped on a motorcycle. She embarked on a 2,600-mile road trip through Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. “My parents were not happy,” she recalls.

Rebel Quote: “Modeling is easy; you just travel a lot.”

On Friday, October 25th, Rihanna will join the ranks of other noteworthy celebs with her own fashion-based reality competition show called Styled To Rock. The show, airing on Bravo, combines two of Executive Producer RiRi’s favorite things: fashion and music. Twelve contestants will be mentored by three industry heavy hitters: singer/producer/designer Pharrell Williams, model/actor/designer Erin Wasson, and Rihanna’s personal stylist Mel Ottenberg. The fashion heads will compete to shape the fashion visions of Rihanna and celebrity guests as they fight for a $100,000 prize, a spread in Glamour, and a potential coveted spot in Rihanna’s glam squad. Life+Times caught up with Erin Wasson, who provided a behind the scenes look into the new series, how Rihanna’s badassness is exactly what fashion needs, and what she has cooking now that the show is about to blow up.

Life+Times: This show sounds amazing.
Erin Wasson: It’s kind of everything. I mean, you know music and fashion colliding – it just seems like the right time and the right place to be doing a show like it. Everyone involved is like super credible, and hyper-intelligent and experienced. I’m thrilled. It was such a ****in’ honor to be a part of it.

L+T: What brought on a show like this?
EW: Well, I got a call from the producers, and I had a meeting with them and the concept sounded really interesting. I’m such a lover of music; it’s so ingrained in my DNA. You know, I’ve always said that so many different mediums of creativity are now symbiotic with each other. Art and fashion are basically hand-in-hand. Fashion and music are obviously hand-in-hand. When you look at music videos, so much of what’s translated and so much of what we’re intoxicated by musicians is how they translate not only their music but their aesthetic and vibe, and they really tell their story through fashion. So I thought to myself, given the people involved and obviously someone like Rihanna who believes in authenticity and believes in pushing the envelope like myself…it felt like the right crew of people. I felt like the message we want to translate was going to be translatable considering the people involved.

L+T: By mentoring these contestants, what did you learn about the up and coming designer? What’s out there right now?
EW: What’s really interesting is that we have a large demographic. Our youngest contestant was 22, and then we had someone all the way up until their 40s with all completely different backgrounds. We had a couple of contestants that had real backgrounds, like legitimate brands they had but they were looking to really challenge themselves and push themselves further for this competition. For me, it’s one of those things where – and I know this very well being in the fashion industry – it’s one thing to be a really good pattern maker, it’s one thing to be able to cut and make and sew together a really amazing article of clothing. You can teach yourself those skill sets, but what really separates people out of the crowd is that veracious point of view and that veracious independent spirit and authenticity that makes them stand out in the crowd. What’s also really great about this show is that the designers are not only asked to design for women – which is what we most often see in most reality-based fashion TV shows – but they have to make menswear as well for some of the contestants that came on network who were male musicians. We had one contestant that was an all menswear designer, and she had to mostly go out of her skill set and make women’s wear. Most of the women’s wear designers got put into this position where they had to tailor make pieces for men. So we really threw all sorts of situations at them. And with musicians, there are a lot of things to think about. Is it a video appearance? Is it a personal appearance? Is it a stage performance? There are a lot of different elements that go into it because it’s live theater performance. It’s not as forgiving as simply walking something down a runway. I just felt that especially with what it means to create fashion, I think it is something that is encapsulated so much with a musician because there are so many different elements they get to play with and explore within themselves and within their music and with the visuals. They’ve got so many chances to push themselves and push their fashion.

L+T: How in tune were the contestants to the styles of the musicians, more specifically Rihanna? Did they have preconceived notions about their fashion senses?
EW: There were definitely weeks where we had people on, and ya know, everyone is their own person, right? Sometimes we had people on and some of our contestants were simply unaware of their styles. We had a Country-western band, and I think that was something that really put everybody out of their element because unless you’re really into that genre of music, it’s hard to really capture what it means to have that Country music spirit. Also to design for a group and find that thread amongst three musicians with one band sharing an aesthetic. I think we threw enough loops at everyone that we really did test their skills and test their ability to go outside of their comfort zone and to not be too one-note. The cool thing about the competition is it’s not just about making the outfits; they’re conceptualizing their own hair and makeup, they’re accessorizing the outfits themselves as well. Even though it’s a design-based television show, there is an element of style to it as well once the executed garment had been accomplished.

L+T: What was Rihanna like on the show?
EW: She’s just real. She tells it how it is, she’s real. That’s the thing about Rihanna; even though she wasn’t a part of every one of our episodes, she was there in spirit. Like you could feel her spirit on the set, even on the days she wasn’t there because we all know what she stands for and that she’s willing to push the envelope. She’s willing to take risks with fashion, and that’s what we expected from the contestants as well. So I think that who she is as a person was threaded all throughout the fabric of the show. And like yeah, being around her is like being in the presence of a demigod, man. She is that cool. At the end of the day, everyone involved in the show – between me, Pharrell, Mel, and Rihanna – is extremely busy and Rihanna was in the midst of her world tour. The days that we got her, we felt so lucky to have her. She takes it all in stride, and she’s such a professional. She really believes in the show. She was super present, she’s very warm and she was extremely human with everyone. That’s what this show represents. We all bring a real sense of humanity to the show, because we really want them to succeed. It isn’t about beating them down to see if they could handle it. It was about truly guiding them and giving them just enough constructive criticism and tough love to get them to keep hungry and to keep pushing themselves forward.

L+T: What did you learn about Rihanna?
EW: She’s just a ****in’ pro, man. She’s an amazing girl that is open to every bone in her body and she knows exactly who she is. She’s unafraid and unapologetic. A total ****in’ badass. She’s the kind of woman that I stand for.

L+T:How did you manage to fit this into your schedule for several weeks?
EW: Well, I dedicated myself to this project and when I dedicate myself, I do it 100 percent. I put everything on hold for a while. I certainly fit in things whenever I could and had weekends off, but it was pretty much 20-hour days, five days a week for about five weeks. So it was more of a concentrated workload than what I’ve known. Certainly coming from the fashion industry, I’m used to doing a job and having a couple days off or like working a week and then having a week off. I was completely enveloped in the process. Because of that, I knew that was going to translate somehow and I wanted to be present every single day. You really become attached to the contestants, and you’re really truly rooting for them on a deep level. I wanted that to translate, and I knew the only way for me to do that was to just dive right into it completely. I made the sacrifice because I believe in the project so much. It was five weeks out of my life, and I was happy I did it.

L+T: Are you pleased with the winner?
EW: I’m extremely pleased. I was kind of rooting for them the whole way through.

L+T: Now that the show is completely wrapped, what are you working on?
EW: I just launched my cowboy boot collection with Ash Footwear. I’ll be launching my new Low Luv collection at the end of the year. When I’m not working I’m in design meetings or down at the factory, overseeing all of that stuff. So there aren’t really that many dull moments [laughs]. I do everything to provoke and challenge myself. I think we have to do things that are different. I think you have to continue to push yourself forward and do things that are a little bit scary. I mean, certainly doing this show, where there’s no veil to hide behind. It’s really me and my anecdotes and my words and my critiques. It’s very vulnerable to be that raw and real and exposed. I’m not pretending to be someone else, I’m not a character, it’s not a photo shoot. It’s me and Mel and Rihanna and Pharrell and all these kids. It’s something I’ve never done before, and I find that exciting. And because of it, I’ve become a more well-rounded, more interesting human being.

Erin Wasson for IMG Models. Photography Eric Guillemain for 2b Management. Executive fashion editor Kate Stukenberg. Art director Michelle Aviña. Assistant fashion editor Megan Pruitt Winder. Hair Harry Josh at harryjosh.com. Makeup Hung Vanngo for CK One Color Cosmetics at The Wall Group. Photo assistant Go Sugimoto for 2b Management. Hair assistant Ty Shearn for harryjosh.com. Makeup assistant Yuko Aoki for CK One Color Cosmetics at The Wall Group. Erin Wasson’s stylist Brandon Palas.

There are multiple reasons to love this month’s cover girl, Erin Wasson: She hails from Irving, Texas. She’s strutted every runway that ever mattered. She rocked the role as a bloodsucker in the delectably absurd Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. She serves on the advisory board of Saving America’s Mustangs. She shares her rocker-chic style through her Low Luv jewelry collection. She’s poised to make reality television cool via her presence on this season’s Styled to Rock. And she never, ever does anything half-assed. We pop into her very cool New York apartment, where she answers our questions with the same no-holds-barred approach.

How did the gig with Styled to Rock come about? I received a call from the producers and was asked to be a mentor. I think, given the spirit of the show, I was chosen based on my perspective on fashion and my innate desire to challenge myself within that realm.

Would you rather style fellow Styled to Rock mentor Pharrell Williams or Rihanna? Rihanna.

The mark of a great stylist. Insane amounts of research, plus the ability to turn the abstract into reality and create a feeling through clothing.

Favorite restaurants in Dallas. Gloria’s. The seaweed salad at Pupusas.

When can we expect your jewelry collection, Low Luv, to relaunch? What’s the inspiration? The line will relaunch at the end of the year. I had to reconfigure things for myself; I needed to get back quality control, control of sales and all the things that you don’t get in a licensing deal. I took what I learned, took a step back and made it feel right for myself with a partner, and found a new perspective. It is definitely more work, but well worth it.

Tell us more about the art show you’re curating in L.A. What media, gallery and how many artists?
It’s a combination of 17 different artists from NY and L.A. A mix of sculptures, video, paintings and photography. Nick Stewart and David Quadrini did all the work, and I’ve been there to just love and be supportive. Creative minds coming together is my favorite thing in the world.

What do you do for a living? What would your title be? Sensual Adventurer.

What are your hangouts in New York? Mostly I stay at home; it’s about a good dinner at this point in my life. I do like an occasional night at Elsa with friends.

You’re reading … Vladimir Nabokov by Jane Grayson.

So, what’s interesting about Nabokov? Despite having a life of struggle, abandonment of home, social position and even his writing in his native language, his work is still joyful.

A place that makes you very, very uncomfortable. Going to flea markets and being followed by girls that don’t have the balls to say hello.

Favorite Dallas haunts. I always shop at Jackie Bolin’s store V.O.D. and spend my days in the garden at the Nasher Sculpture Center.

Last vacation. Paia, Maui, in Hawaii. My goal is to abort all this **** and move to Hawaii.

Beauty products I can’t live without. Any and all skincare from Terri Lawton and my Maybelline Great Lash Mascara.

Must-have Fall 2013 collection. I really love Marc Jacobs this season.

Favorite room in your new house in Venice. Every room — I f***ing love my house! The spirit is incredible, and this is the first home I’ve lived in where I can host my whole family under the same roof. Venice suits my lifestyle.

Song that makes you want to dance. “The Nitty Gritty” by Shirley Ellis.

Current obsession. Lotusland in Santa Barbara.

Signature fragrance. Justice Bodan oils.

Favorite outfit from childhood. Overalls by OshKosh B’gosh.

Most recent art acquisition. Scott Reeder painting.

How do you see the modeling industry evolving? The rise of social media has changed the game. It is no longer “exclusive,” I suppose. I used to feel like we all were part of a secret society, but not so much now. Everything and everyone has access.

What did you want to be when you were a kid? A chef.

What do you want people to remember about you? That I took risks, worked hard, that I stayed true to myself and that I shared a spirit with the world that made them think that anything is possible.

Best cowboy boots. Stallion from El Paso and R. Soles from London.

Best places to shop vintage. Dolly Python in Dallas, Narnia in New York and Animal House in Venice.

Your morning juice. Apple turmeric or spicy ginger citrus.

Why did you name your dog Cream? The band! Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker are magic.

In the band cream, who do you prefer: Eric or ginger? Or both? Ha, both! Eric and Ginger. But Ginger was the special kind of crazy and talented.

Favorite memory of working with Al Tidwell. Every one of them! We worked in Fair Park once, and he had these short denim cutoffs with a little Chinese-star hat. From behind, his legs are better than mine! He has that “thing.” He just brings goodness and joy wherever he goes.
