Q&A with Natasha Poly

Natasha Poly is from Perm Russia (close to Siberia).
As part of our day in the life diary of Natasha during Fashion Week, I asked Natasha a few questions…

Your favorite clothes this week:
I love so many of the designers but this week especially Narciso Rodriguez.

What’s the earliest you got up this week?
6:00AM for a show

What’s the latest you stayed up this week?
I finished some fittings at 3:00AM.

Which has been your favorite “hair” all week?
It was at Roland Mouret.

And makeup?
All the makeup this week has been very simple and fresh which I really like.

What do you do to pass the time while waiting for shows?
I listen to Russian pop music. The music is just OK, but I love the lyrics. It’s nice to hear the Russian words. Sometimes I give it to one of my Russian model friends so they can listen. I also play Solitaire on my iPod.

What do you carry in your bag?
Besides my iPod, during show week I carry makeup remover, some money, lip balm, gloves, my ID, face cream and my Sony Cybershot (it’s a really good camera).

What do you wear to the shows?
I like dresses and boots. (Today, Natasha’s wearing a Tuleh dress, Costume National boots and carrying a YSL bag, tres chic!)

What’s your favorite thing about NY fashion week?
It’s the first city of the shows so I get to see all my friends who I haven’t seen in a while. We’re always so busy traveling so it’s great to be with them all week.

Who are some of your favorite model friends?
Marija, Hana, Caroline T, Eugenia V (we roomed together in Paris). But really I like all the girls and am always happy to see them.
