“Have you ever seen Stranger Things?” writes model Londone Myers when we send her our questionnaire. “That show you keep telling yourself you’ll watch after work because other people LOVE it, but you never get to it…I am the upside down faced emoji of fashion.”
Born and raised in Georgia, Londone Myers is not your average model. Before making her runway debut at the SS 2016 Yeezy show and walking as an exclusive at Saint Laurent, for example, Myers assisted an autopsy technician. One year into her modeling career, she’s already on her way to the top—thus far, she’s starred in campaigns for Gap, Prada, and Topshop, and covered Wonderland magazine.
THE PERSON I ADMIRE THE MOST:
Anyone who shows general interest in something nerdy that I mistakenly let slip because I was thinking about something else while talking.
Anyone who watches anime and proudly admits it—surprisingly hard to find people who do these days.
QUESTIONS I CAN’T ANSWER:
Everything on this list. Thank god for my ghostwriter. LOL.
MY GREATEST ADVENTURE:
My greatest adventure would probably be my adventures as an undertaker—only because my agent hates it when I tell that story.
EVENTS I WISH I’D WITNESSED:
I wish I could have seen the other models drained, irritated faces when they saw how long this list was.
THINGS I’D LIKE TO IMPROVE ABOUT MYSELF:
Hmm. I’d have a better answer once everyone else improves themselves. How about we start with Uber drivers who leave after negative five nano seconds?
GAMES I PLAY:
Wow, I never expected to see this question here. Far Cry Primal, anyone?
MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT:
I started making dolls because I told myself I could.
MY GREATEST VICE:
I’ve been waiting my entire life to answer this particular question for an interview. My vice used to be staring at people while they’re eating in the food court, now it’s holding open doors for people who are literally a football field away from me.
MY IDEA OF HAPPINESS:
Finding someone who actually wants to grab coffee after they offer.
ONE LAST FAVOR I’D LIKE TO ASK:
By now whoever is editing this is probably realizing that I am completely insane. Whomever this reaches, please send help.
