ON DRESSING FOR HER FIRST REAL JOB—AT VOGUE
It was unreal when I landed my dream job at Vogue. Dressing for it wasn’t all that difficult for me because I’ve always been pulled-together. I owned lots of dresses—you get to work and it’s as if everyone is ready to be photographed. So I dressed to look good, it had nothing to do with my mood. Aquarians don’t really follow trends.
ON FINDING ASTROLOGY
Over time my interest shifted and astrology came into play. I was seeing a therapist who is also an astrologist, and through talking to her I found a higher meaning to my life. She introduced me to my birth chart at the beginning of 2018. And everything took off from there.
ON DRESSING FOR YOUR SIGN
Your rising sign tends to dictate how you appear to people. It’s easy to see a Capricorn rising: No frills. Or a Scorpio rising loves all black—they don’t gravitate towards color. Sometimes your rising sign can even affect your physical features. Virgo rising tends to have close set eyes. Obviously there’s a lot going on in everyone’s charts, so these are general. As a Pisces rising, I definitely relate to the belief that this sign is interested in fashion and art.
