Now Casting: Molly Bair


The first time that we spotted the hard-to-miss Molly Bair was backstage at Proenza Schouler’s spring ’15 show. A crowd of photographers and modeling agents were whispering and wondering where she came from. From that moment on, it’s been all uphill for the 17 year-old Philadelphia native who just wore Chanel’s key couture look down the runway in Paris last week. Here, we get some answers from Molly to help calm the whispering: she idealizes Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she’s a squash player, and you should definitely follow her quirky Instagram feed (@molllsbair).

First memory of fashion:
“My first show was Proenza Schouler. I remember being nervous, but forgetting everything as soon as I stepped on the runway.”

Role models:
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg and my grandparents, Richard and Peggy Hawkins.”

Best modeling advice that you’ve ever received:
“The photographer Dimitri Hyacinthe taught me how to make ordinary movements into interesting and beautiful pictures.”

Favorite beauty trick:

In 10 years you’ll be:
“Working as an environmental lobbyist.”

Actress you’d pick to play you in a movie:
“Kristen Wiig.”

Favorite makeup artist, hairstylist:
“Pat McGrath and Guido Palau.”

How do you stay in shape:
