Model Watch: 5 minutes with Hayley Hasselhoff


Best known for… Runway around the world.

Greatest Achievement… Being able to do what I love. To be able to have a voice in the plus size movement and working with brands who are changing fashion for curvy girls. Every job I book I am just as excited as the next. My love for what I do and how grateful I am to continue on this journey is endless. What an amazing job I have to be given the opportunity to create with so many talented artists.

Biggest Fashion Fail… Growing up in the public eye, most of my fashion fails have been documented. I think in this industry it takes a while to work with the right people who allow you to stay true to your style on red carpets. It took me a while to learn that. With that knowledge I’ve now made a point to stay true to my style.

Best piece of advice you have been given… To live every day in a state of acceptance & trust. Accepting all that life throws at you. Trusting myself and knowing to listen to my instincts. Trusting the journey I am on.

I never leave home without… My phone.

The best thing I ever bought was… well I definitely think it’s always changing. But I’ve always been in love with my 2 Borghese Mirrored Side Chest from Z Gallerie in Los Angeles. They are such a classic piece to be used for night stands.

The best place I’ve ever travelled to… It depends on who I am with. The company you share your travels with even if it’s the people you meet along the way really make a huge differ- ence in how special the place can be. A day I will always remember was on a trip by myself in the Maldives to become an Advanced scuba diver. I got to spend the day with the locals on one of the Maldivian islands. It will forever be special to me that I got to -slink-cover-hayley-hasselhoff2meet such beautiful souls and see in their world.

The fashion item I would save in a fire… My red Givenchy coat. It’s a piece I can always count on to complete an outfit.

If I could live anywhere in the world I’d live… Somewhere in the countryside in the UK, Ireland or France.

The app I can’t live without… Afterlight (for editing my Instagram photos) & CityMapper (the best way to learn how to get around using public transportation in a new city)

My favourite flavour of ice cream is… Vanilla.

The fashion fad I can’t get on board with is… Jean Shorts.. It’s more of an LA Coachella Music Festival fashion fad. But never been my style.

If I could shop any brand (straight or plus), I’d fill my wardrobe with… Vince, 3.1 Phillip Lim or Asos Curve.

The song that should be my soundtrack is… ‘Someone New’ by Hozier.

My big goal in the next 12 months is… Let’s say my big goals without a month restriction. I don’t believe on giving myself a time frame to achieve something. I believe in working hard every day to continue on my path and trusting the present to take me there. Some goals of mine are to shoot with Vogue. To get back into television. To work on a clothing line for all sizes. And many more. Overall I plan on continuing on my journey. Growing in my craft and appreciating the opportunity to share it with the world.
