Barbara Palvin considers fashion her job, not a personal interest.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated model was discovered in Budapest at the age of 13, and four years later, she made her Milan Fashion Week debut for Prada.
She’s since walked for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, and Chanel, and has landed high-profile campaigns for H&M, Armani Exchange and L’Oreal Paris.
However, the 25-year-old considers fashion her job, not a personal interest, and told Fashionista she would rather wear clothes from the closet of her boyfriend, actor Dylan Sprouse.
“I’ve definitely learned a few things through 13 years of work, but fashion still doesn’t really excite me,” she candidly shared. “Sometimes when Dylan gets some stuff, I take it.”
She also revealed she is bored by shopping, and because she tries on so many clothes during photoshoots, she thinks of buying clothes as a chore.
“When I go shopping, I know what I need and I’ll just go into one or two stores. When I’m shopping, I feel like I’m working. I prefer to not even try things on. I’m just like, ‘that should look good’ and I’ll take it,” Barbara stated.
The Hungarian beauty lives in Brooklyn, New York, with former child star Dylan, and prefers simple styles and comfortable clothing.
“It doesn’t matter the brand. If it feels right on my body, I’ll take it. I usually go for something comfortable, casual but still sexy. The more simple it is, the sexier it looks,” she explained.
Despite walking for high-fashion houses on catwalks around the world, Palvin feels like an “outsider” in upscale luxury stores.
“New York is closer to my style than Paris. Paris can be too chic for me. New York has a little edginess, but still can be classy. I do love Chinatown and Brooklyn, like little stores. I don’t like to go to the rich area. I can’t do that. I feel like an outsider there,” she added.
