Karmen Pedaru, Model
"I live in between Rome and Estonia. It’s great—I was living in New York, but it was too busy and hectic. I’m European as well—I grew up in Estonia—so I like to be in Europe. And it’s just very calm and beautiful. You can go outside and really look around at everything. I don’t want to talk about fashion every single day. And that’s the best thing with my friends in Rome...we never talk about it!

My husband and I go out for dinner every night—we have three restaurants in the Piazza Navona that we switch between. My husband always wants to try new things, but I freak out if I have to go to a new restaurant. I don’t know what to expect. I mean, I love raw food and I know where I can get the best of that—La Rosetta. My good friend is the chef, and it’s won a Michelin Star as well. My husband is probably the only Italian who doesn’t cook. The only thing we do in the kitchen is open a bottle of wine. I think that’s the only thing we need—a bottle opener. Sometimes he does cook pasta at 5 in the morning, but at that time, everything is good!

When we go to Estonia, we play cards all night. I love cards, and I love casinos, and I love gambling. I grew up with cards all my life. Blackjack, and then there’s a bunch of Italian games I play with my husband’s mom a lot. I'd rather do that then go out to a normal club. But if we do go out—the trashier, the better. Oh, it’s so much more fun! I love really cheesy music from the '80s. Regular clubs bore me.

When I go out, I try to do a bit of a smokey eye, and I love the contour—but I’m actually bad at putting mascara on myself. I do everything really fast. For my eyes, I just put some color on, it’s not really very technical. [Laughs] I do it with a pencil inside the eye a little and then on the lids. And then I smudge it up with my fingers. Yes, I love the Charlotte Tilbury Rock'n'Kohl Eyeliner. I mean, all of her stuff is great. Then I use concealer when I have to cover something, but I try not to. And I’ve been using Le Volume de Chanel Mascara—it's basic and easy to use.

I don’t like to do lips, because it always comes off. On me it’s always all over the place when I put on a red lip. I just started liking the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner, just to throw it on, because it makes your lips look bigger. It's nude-ish—pink is not acceptable in my life. But I do use Michael Kors' Rose Radiant Gold Eau de Parfum! [Laughs] It's a bit spicy, which I like a lot.

Before I put on makeup, I love doing a face massage. In an ideal world, I would do the Mommy Dearest, Joan Crawford routine—the whole thing. But, you know, I’m so freakin’ lazy that I don’t. The reason they do it before shoots is because it relaxes the muscles, and the makeup does look better. So that, I really like. I love face massages. And I do a lot of masks. In the morning, I use cold water—lots of it. It helps to get my cheekbones back and looking normal again, like a human! And then just toner and moisturizer and eye cream—all La Prairie. I’ve been trying every single one, so many different creams…it’s so expensive, but it’s the only cream that actually works. I do have the serum and toner and everything. But I put on a lot, like when I go to sleep, I put on a lot of the moisturizer, like slap it on.

My hair has a natural wave in it because I don't like to blow dry it. I don't do any of that stuff—curling irons or straighteners or hairsprays. Right now I'm blondish because of the sea water and the sun, but I don't color it. I just use whatever my husband is using—we have the Kiehl's Shampoo and Conditioner and I use a lot of it. The one thing I do have is hair oil. During the summer when you have the sun and the sea water, and after washing, I put that on, just to moisturize a bit, so it’s not so rough—it does get like that.

A lot of times when we come back from the party or whatever, friends are coming over to our house, because we have a very beautiful terrace. And we just have more fun, until someone passes out. [Laughs]"

Get to Know Michael Kors’s Muse Karmen Pedaru
Who What Wear: You’ve been working with Michael Kors for years. What do you think makes the MK woman so appealing?
Karmen Pedaru: For me, the Michael Kors woman is a free thinker, open-minded, sporty, but also sophisticated and elegant. I relate so much to that.

WWW: Who are some women that inspire you?
KP: Strong women inspire me. I love Audrey Hepburn and Faye Dunaway; they are my all-time favorites. Also, I admire Angelina Jolie.
WWW: What have you learned about your personal style, working in fashion for so many years?
KP: In the shows and at photo shoots, I get to wear such amazing clothes that sometimes may not be the most comfortable. I also have to wear a lot of makeup and my hair full of hairspray. It’s a great departure for me. In my personal time, I like to stick to the basics; I wear simple, easy clothes and minimal makeup.

WWW: What five pieces should every woman have in her wardrobe?
KP:
All you need is a good classic blazer, leather pants, a great pair of heels, a nice black dress (nothing too fancy), and a timeless coat. With those five pieces, I think every woman can look amazing, and they are so versatile!
WWW: What item is on heavy rotation in your wardrobe right now?
KP:
I like to stick to the basics with my wardrobe, but right now, I’m having fun playing with texture and jewelry. I love leather and fur; both are great ways to elevate your wardrobe. Of course, a simple gold necklace or bangle is always the perfect accessory.

WWW: What is your must-have item for fall?
KP:
A fur coat. It is such a classic and adds that extra something to every outfit! I always feel so sophisticated and glamorous wearing a fur coat, even if it’s over a T-shirt.
WWW: Is there a trend you never get tired of?
KP:
I’m not sure it’s a trend, but I will always love wearing leather pants and a T-shirt with high heels. It’s the ultimate simple outfit that’s still so edgy. It’s my go-to when I want to feel great in what I’m wearing.

WWW: If you could swap wardrobes with anyone, who would it be and why?
KP:
Victoria Beckham. She’s such an amazing women who for so many years has had fabulous style. She must have closets of incredible clothes!
WWW: What’s the best fashion advice you’ve ever received?
KP:
Style is all about owning what you love and what makes you feel like your best self. I always try to channel that.

WWW: You are constantly on the go for work. What’s your secret to staying healthy and fit?
KP:
As I fly a lot, I drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Also, I carry a jum prope with me whenever I’m traveling; it’s great exercise on the go. I also generally try to eat healthy and drink green juices.
WWW: Can you tell us about your beauty regime? What products do you take everywhere?
KP:
I love La Prairie products; they never let me down. I also get massages and facials regularly. It’s a great way to destress and treat yourself. I always leave feeling so refreshed with my skin glowing.

WWW: If you were a perfume, how would you describe your scent?
KP:
I love fresh woody notes! They’re so bold and invigorating. That’s what I love about the Michael Kors 24K Brilliant Gold Eau du Perfum ($100). It mixes light florals with a bit of woodiness.

WWW: Do you have any dos or don’ts when it comes to applying perfume?
KP:
I always spray it in front of me, walking through the perfume cloud so that the scent settles in my hair and on the outfit I’m wearing. That way, it lingers all night!
WWW: What has been your most memorable experience working as a model?
KP:
I love my job, because there have been many great experiences over the years. I’m not sure I could choose just one as the most memorable.

WWW: Where is your favorite place to visit in the world?
KP:
My home [Estonia] and the Maldives. They’re the places I feel most relaxed and happy.

WWW: What do you think is the biggest social media faux pas?
KP:
I can be pretty private. My biggest faux pas is over-posting—people posting about every second of their lives. I prefer to post less frequently and make sure that it’s important to me and to my followers.

Wearing Cruise’s tropical prints and sizzling beachwear pieces, model KARMEN PEDARU explores Mexico’s luxuriant landscape. By EMMA SELLS.

Karmen Pedaru is trying to decide what the most precious item she owns is. It’s a toss-up. On the one hand, there’s her wedding dress; a once- stunning, see-through Francesco Scognamiglio sheath, strategically embroidered and beaded, still hanging up in her wardrobe three years after her wedding to Riccardo Ruini, the Italian creative director for the likes of Valentino, Pucci and Gucci. “[The dress] is just in little pieces now,” Pedaru admits. “It’s completely destroyed because I had a lot of fun in it.”

On the other hand, there is the 200-strong collection of high heels that lines the walls of her walk-in closet. After careful consideration, the heels win. “I don’t really get attached to clothes but my shoes are very special,” she says. “Even when I go on vacation and I know I’m going to have bare feet the whole time, I still pack them. For me, they’re the most important part of an outfit.”

Important, yes, but just in case you were tempted to think that the life of a model is always a glamorous one, the 25-year-old says her favorite fashion items are also her greatest occupational hazard. “Somehow I am never given the right size shoes at work so I suffer a lot,” she says. “It’s horrible; I’ve had in-growing toenails so many times. It’s the worst thing about my job.”

Estonian-born Pedaru started modeling ten years ago, when she was spotted in the cloakroom queue at a theater in her hometown of Tallinn. Just ten days after she was signed, she flew to India for a Teen Vogue shoot and the bookings just kept on coming. Over the last decade, she has clocked up runway appearances for the biggest labels in the business, landed campaigns for everyone from Chloé to Gucci, secured a full-time contract with Michael Kors (she has starred in both the US label’s fashion and beauty ads for the past four years) and appeared in an incessant blur of magazine shoots.

Striking a physical balance between athletic and sexy, Pedaru makes her job look easy, but it hasn’t always been so. “When I started, I hated it, 100 percent,” she laughs now. “It was really difficult for me at the beginning; I was very self-conscious, so being in front of the camera was hard. I wanted to quit so many times.”

It didn’t help that her blossoming career left her no time for her first love, soccer, and she had to give up a place on Estonia’s national women’s team. “I did sports my whole life. It was fun for me to play and that was what I really cared about,” she says. “Modeling had never crossed my mind. I knew nothing when I started, I had absolutely no idea what Prada or Gucci was.”

Thankfully fashion has grown on her, personally as well as professionally. Away from the runway, her much admired off-duty style is effortlessly cool and insouciant. For proof, conduct a quick internet search for her wedding photos; not the Ibiza party where she wore the aforementioned dress, but the intimate ceremony itself, where, as a last-minute choice, she wore a cream Yves Saint Laurent pant suit – plucked from her closet that morning – and looked so elegant you wonder why anyone ever bothers with a white gown at all. “I love to be comfortable but I try to look chic as well,” she explains. Her fail-safe outfit? “Jeans or leather pants with a T-shirt and blazer. And high heels, of course.”

Pedaru spends her downtime hanging out with friends and watching lots of movies, classics like The Thomas Crown Affair and Scarface. She takes care of herself, eating healthily and sticking to vegetables, fish and sushi, but these days she doesn’t exercise much. Soccer is off the table thanks to a knee injury, and working out alone holds little appeal. “Sometimes I run or jump rope, but I don’t do much sport now, I watch it instead,” she laments. “Playing sport with other people is more exciting for me than doing it by myself. I hate the gym and I’m not a yoga person – I fall asleep, it just bores me.”

Unlike many models today, Pedaru is not someone you’ll see posting hourly updates on Instagram or making regular red-carpet appearances. “I know social media is important for models, but I find it hard to get myself into it,” she says. “I know some people wake up and want to check Instagram straight away, but I don’t have that feeling.”

Raised by her grandmother in Estonia, Pedaru moved to New York when she was 17, happy to have a change of scene. Over the past few years, though, she has started returning to her birthplace more often, dividing her time between her home there and Rome, where she moved after meeting her husband on a Gucci campaign shoot. As much as she loves her job, she seems reluctant to fully immerse herself in it – perhaps aware of the short-lived nature of modeling. “I have ideas in my head of other things I’d like to do,” she says, “because obviously modeling won’t last forever.”

As for now, she enjoys spending time somewhere removed from the day-to-day fashion circus. “I miss everything about Estonia when I’m not there and I get homesick a lot,” she says. “My stuff is in Rome and it’s a great place and so beautiful, but it’s not my home. Estonia is my happy place.”

I really really miss her and her style (. Does anyone have some insider information- is she completely out (for now) or just still recovering from her injury?
