Q&A with Natasha Poly

February 16th, 2005 by betty

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.
