WWD: Are there any models you look up to?
R.M.: I do have some model friends that I talk to and they give me advice. I like Joan Smalls. She’s really humble. I met her at a couple of the shows. I’ve met some girls where they may not say, “You can’t sit with me,” but they give off that vibe where it’s like, you’re new, I don’t know you, don’t talk to me. But Joan was really chill and sweet. That’s why she is where she’s at today. And of course, I’ll always look up to Naomi — she’s the boss. She’s the baddest! And Kate Moss, she’s still killin’. She’s 40 and still taking all the covers. She is bomb. Give me magazine covers at 40 years old.

How did the zebra get its stripes? A new paper suggests one theory to explain this biological mystery: that the stripes repel insects. http://nyr.kr/1ehD1uA
“Discouraging bites from flies is obviously useful, since the insects often carry fatal diseases. Also, while a single bite from blood-eating flies extracts just a tiny droplet of blood, thousands of bites per day can add up to significant blood loss.”
