As we wrapped up Everly’s Spring ‘13 lookbook shoot, we had a moment to catch up with newcomer model, Liv Mathis, and ask her a few questions that we were dying to know. From “model snacks” to getting washed out to shore, Liv, a 17 year-old student originally from Atlanta, Georgia, shares her favorite things and moments of the day:
What was your favorite part of today’s shoot?
Favorite part was that everyone was so helpful, and everyone was such a team. Of course, the clothes were adorable and the set up! The set up made everything. It was overall just a really good day.
If you could pick one Everly outfit to take home, which one would it be?
The cream two-piece outfit! The high waisted skirt and cropped top, along with the cream sunglasses!
What is your favorite trend for the spring season?
Colors. Tons of color blocking and pairing it with gold jewelry. I like colors with gold. I’m ready to wear it right now!
What was your most memorable setup/scene from today?
Definitely the boat, haha. At one point when the water came up on shore and I was like, ‘why am I moving?!’ but luckily everybody was super helpful with the boat scene and it was definitely the most fun.
Who is your style icon/inspiration?
I’m going to say Georgia Jagger. She’s just so rock and roll and inspiring to me. I just adore her! I think she’s great.
When and how did you decide to get into modeling?
I was scouted by a New York scout when I was 15 in my hometown. And when I turned 17, I decided to take it seriously and I met CW Management, my mother agent, and signed here in LA. Then that’s when everything started happening…
When off set, what do you like to do during your downtime?
Um, I definitely like to relax and just hang out with friends. I also try to catch up on as much school work as I can. I love reading. I’ve always been really good in school and reading and things like that. I also love make up and I love doing makeup, so I practice on myself sometimes in the mirror too!
What is your favorite food?
Hmm…this is such a hard one!
Ok, fine… what’s your favorite ‘model snack’?
Haha ‘model snack’. Well, I was eating this snack the other day and I was like this is my new favorite thing! They’re called super chips and they’re like these little granola yogurt chips, like pumpkin spice and it’s so healthy for you too. It’s not a lot of calories at all and no sodium. It’s amazing! And it even gives you energy too.
Wow, that sounds amazing. Where do you get that?!
It’s called Go Raw Super Chips, and you can get them at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.
That’s great! (We did some research and found it here – you’re welcome!!)
If you were to give advice to any girl who wants to be a model right now, what would it be?
Hm, definitely don’t give up because it takes a lot of time, a lot of effort, and a lot of ambition. And stay healthy – definitely stay healthy!
Last one, where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see myself hopefully with a good established modeling career, and then my next goal would to be taking on the business side of modeling.
That’s awesome. Thanks so much for all your amazing work today, Liv. Any last words?
I had a great day shooting with Everly, so thank you! And thanks for everyone being so amazing!
