Now Casting: Sarah Brannon


Ninteen year old model Sarah Brannon’s big break was at Alexander Wang’s Fall ’14 show—her blunt black bob and piercing eyes haven’t gone unnoticed since then. Sarah’s unique features also earned her a place on our Issue 6 cover and in Carine’s “new guard”—a group of models redefining individual beauty. Sarah grew up Memphis, Tennessee where she had always followed Victoria’s Secret, wishing she could be a model. Sarah, it’s all happening!

First memory of fashion:
“Watching the Victoria’s Secret shows while growing up. After watching them every year I knew I wanted to be a model.”

What was the first runway show you walked in and what do you remember about it:
“My first runway show was Alexander Wang. I remember standing backstage in the lineup and the music starting. My heart was pounding and my hands were shaking because I was so nervous.”

What is your favorite modeling career moment (so far) and why:
“My favorite memory is about all of the friends I’ve made. For example, I met Molly Bair for the first time at the CR shoot and since then we’ve become good friends. It was great hanging out with everyone that day. I was so excited when I found out I was shooting the cover, I felt so grateful because CR Fashion Book is such an amazing magazine. I owe a lot to Carine, she really knows how to bring out the best in us girls.”

Favorite designers and why:
“My style is very tough and tomboy—skinny jeans and hoodies. I’ve never really been a girly girl, so one of my favorite designers is Alexander Wang. His clothes are strong and sporty, but they have an edge. Givenchy is my go-to designer for a party night because Givenchy girls always look in control.”

Who are your role models:
“My role model has to be my mother. She raised me on her own, she’s so independent, and she really pushed me to do my best. I want to be like her when I grow up.”
What is the best modeling advice you have ever received and who gave it to you:
“‘Always stay humble.’ So many people have told me this throughout my career and I always try to remember that. No one likes to work with a diva.”

Favorite beauty trick:
“My favorite beauty trick has to be lots of moisturizer, because your skin gets so dried out with all the makeup. Also, eyebrows—I love big thick eyebrows!”

What would people be surprised to know about you:
“I can juggle.”

What projects do you have on the horizon:
“I have many projects on the horizon, but they’re secrets for now!”

Where do you see yourself in 10 years:
“Settled down, probably married and having my first kid. I’ll be taking a break from modeling and getting into school.”

Which actress would you play you in a movie:
“Uma Thurman.”

Who is your celebrity crush:
“Spooky Black. I love his voice. And music. And him.”

Who is your favorite makeup artist or hairstylist:
“I can’t pick and choose favorites, everyone in this industry is great.”

What’s your most embarrassing moment:
“Probably tripping and falling while doing a rehearsal on the runway.”

What do you do to stay in shape:
“I drink loads of water and eat healthily.”
