Meet The Model

img_7372We sat down and chatted to our Autumn/Winter cover girl Lola Parnell about all things modelling, her favourite things, skin care secrets and what she can’t stop listening to on her playlist! 

How did you start modelling?
 Well I grew up with my mum being a photographer so I always knew about the modelling industry! But I got scouted when I was about 14 outside a festival. I didn’t sign with those guys, as I still had school, but when I turned 15 I signed with my mother agent! Once I finished school a couple of months ago I started modelling properly.
What’s your most memorable photo shoot?
 Well apart from my Marc b shoot (obviously), probably my shoot for i-D, West Is Best or Clio Peppiatt’s campaign! Or Sadie Clayton’s lookbook…. I can’t choose!
Favourite model?
 This is also really hard! Probably Kate Moss.


Who’s your favourite designer?

Oh my god… I always want to steal the clothes off the runways of Céline, Chloé, Fendi and Dolce and Gabbana. Sorry once again I’m indecisive!

What would you say to girls wanting to get into modelling?

I would say first of all, I know everyone says it but seriously just wait until you’re done with education, have patience! It’s so much easier to do once that’s all out of the way. And do not get into modelling if you lack self confidence! You need a lot of it! Make sure you’re strong in who you are.


What’s your best tips for flawless skin?
A good diet with lots of veggies and water, and eating everything as close as you can get it to its natural state. Product wise, I use organic or all natural skincare which is amazing! Coconut oil guys. That’s all I’m gonna say. Use it as a cleanser!
How would you define your personal style?
Eclectic and always changing!
 Who’s your style icon?
 I take inspiration from literally everyone, my pictures are 50% screenshots! I take most inspo from vogue’s YouTube videos, and different Instagram accounts like knighttcat and fingermonkey a.k.a Camille Rowe, but my ultimate style icon is probably Adwoa Aboah, plus she’s amazing, check out Gurl’s Talk!
 What’s trending for A/W 16/17?
 I think what’s in is lots of embroidery and illustration, especially on jeans and boots! Definitely layering and colourful faux fur. Red, pink and yellow are also the colours to be!
What’s on your playlist at the moment?
  Solange – Don’t Touch My Hair, Frank Ocean – Nikes, Labi Stiffe – The Vulture, and Erykah Badu – Fall in Love (Your Funeral).
 Which photographer would you love to work with?
Which magazine would you love to be on the cover of?
 Vogue or i-D.
 Favourite marc b bag?
 The Yaz OR maybe the Knightsbridge?! I love them both in Scarlet and Black!
