In 1986, we asked Bob Dylan, the perennial icon of ’60s cool, a few seemingly simple questions about his inspirations, regrets, favorite games, and even his last slice of pizza. The premise was straightforward: “Sometimes a simple shopping list can be more revealing than a person’s life story.” Thirty years later, we’re presenting a similar set of questions to some of the most interesting models in fashion today, beginning with industry icon Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen. Check back next Tuesday for more.
