Spend 5: Matilda Dods


Because we like to do our bit to ensure you stay ahead of the game… we spend 5 with Matilda Dods. The IMG signed model slash musician that has us cutting bangs and rocking vintage jeans like a boss. She is the kind of girl that Jane Birkin would crush on and Alexa Chung would befriend and it really doesn’t take long to see why. Her signature brunette bangs and those Bambi eyes have seen her travel to all corners of the world, grace the pages of Vogue and strut the catwalk for some our personal favourites such as  Rochas. Now when Dell’Acqua takes note … you listen. So get to the name, before everyone else does.

You’re welcome.

WARNING: Bangs are permanent and regular humans don’t wake up like this (just saying).


SPEND 5...

Name: Matilda Dods

Occupation: Matilda Dods

It began when: I was scouted on Facebook when I was 15, it really began when I moved to Paris at the beginning of this year

Highlights so far: Walking exclusively for Prada last season, main fashion for French Numero with Miles Aldridge

I’ve learnt along the way that: It’s never about you, it’s always about them

I look up to: Any girl in this industry that finished school. My mum

Hobbies include: Playing my guitar and writing angsty love songs about fuckbois

Ideal day off looks like: Sleep in, yoga, massive breakfast, read a good book, long boozy lunch with friends, nap, bath, dancing all night

I always hang at: Saturday’s in New York, cafe pinson in Paris, my house in Byron bay

Style muse: Jane Birkin forever

You’ll always see me in: A leather jacket

On my wishlist: Chloe Faye bag

On speed dial: My mum, my best friend Ella

I can’t leave the house without: Lip balm, Miu Miu sunglasses

Current addiction: Mario Badescu rose water facial spray/ Apperrol spritz’s

Beauty must try: SkinCeuticals hydrating b5 gel, this this is the bomb

On health and fitness: High carb vegan diet, who on earth can be bothered to count calories or shit like that? For exercise I do a mix of Pilates, barre and yoga depending on my mood and what city I’m in

To tame my locks: Haha I don’t own a hairbrush. But bumble and bumble thickening shampoo, conditioner and mousse do a good job of fooling you all into thinking that I have more than 7 strands of hair

Always in my handbag: Lip balm

Coffee or tea? Tea, or chai lattes

Summer or winter? Winter, but Australian winter. American winter isn’t winter – it’s torture

Sneakers or heels? Boots

Must watch: Twin Peaks

On repeat: One Dance- Drake, Froot – Marina and the Diamonds

Everyone must try: Yoga

I am most excited for: Summer in New York and seeing Diana Ross at the Hollywood bowl with my brother in LA in July

Life motto: Do no harm, but take no shit
