Lucy Knell

Models 1 (London)




Place of Origin:
Northwest London, England

Ethnic Origin:
As far as I know I am fully English!


How discovered:
I first got scouted by a small agency through Instagram, and was with them for a little while but decided they weren’t right for me. So I sent my pictures to a few agencies in London, not expecting to hear much back, but within the same afternoon Models 1 messaged me back saying that they wanted me to come into see them, and it went from there!

Favorite things:
My favorite thing definitely has to be my cat, I couldn’t imagine living in a house without him! I love doing anything creative, especially illustration and sculpture. Something I don’t think I could live with out is my polaroid camera as it’s so nice to have physical pictures which is quite a rare thing nowadays.

What are you listening to at the moment?
My favorite song at the moment is 1998 feat. Banks by Chet Baker

Favorite movie, tv show:
It’s hard to choose one favorite movie but I love anything by Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino, and if I had to choose a favorite one from both it would have to be Moonrise Kingdom and Pulp Fiction. And I love watching Friends (who doesn’t!), it’s normally always on in the mornings in my house!

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
An all time favorite designer has to be Alexander McQueen, his creations are so amazing and getting to see his exhibition at London’s V&A just made me fall in love with his work even more. His work is so sculptural and about making women look so strong and powerful! My favorite fragrance is Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy’, I love how soft and subtle it is, not too overpowering! A skin product I swear by is Body Shop’s ‘Tea Tree Face Wash’ it keeps my skin so clear and feels so refreshing, and all of their products are cruelty free which is even better.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t modelling right now, I think I’d be doing some sort of a creative internship as that is what I’ve always planned on doing after college rather than further education, or just anything creative really. I’ve also always wanted to go travelling and that was something I was planning on doing this year, so it’s something I’d love to do after modelling. I love exploring and discovering new places.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I love kitsch things and thrift shopping! I collect little old pieces from charity shops like cat ornaments and teapots, I think there’s about 9 vintage cake stands in my cupboard and about 15 kitsch vintage ornaments in my room!

Favorite modeling experience so far?
It has to be my first editorial shoot for Lone Wolf magazine, as it was so creative and so much fun with such a lovely team, the set was so dreamy! This was my first experience of an editorial shoot so it’s always going to be special to me.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about my hometown is how close we are the the center of London but we’re also far enough away that there’s so many forests and great places to go for walks and wanders that you don’t even feel like you’re in the city anymore, and as much as I love the high pace life of in Central London, it’s so nice to live near all of this open space as well.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d love to model for Shrimps, their clothes are an absolute dream!

Place you would love to visit:
Iceland’s Blue Lagoon looks so magical.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’m obsessed with interiors, I love looking at dreamy rooms on pintrest and watching interior design shows!
