Want to know how a model travels ask Liya:
THE OUTNET: Where was your last holiday?
Liya Kebede: “I went to St. Barth’s – I was just there for work. It’s nice too.”
THE OUTNET: What are your packing essentials?
Liya Kebede: “I’m really not good at packing! I’m not organized in a way where I’m like, oh I’m going to wear this on this day, you know? It’s always about what I feel the day of! And it never works out. So I always just want to throw in all my things that I always wear, just to be safe.”
THE OUTNET: And what are the pieces that you always wear?
Liya Kebede: “A lot of t-shirts, a lot of white, and then my essentials, like summer pants. I’m quite casual. Flats, shorts – I take a lot of LemLem stuff.”
THE OUTNET: Do you tend to over or under pack?
Liya Kebede: “Over pack, always! And then I realize I’ve used like a tenth of what I packed. The top layer!”
THE OUTNET: You live in New York. Where do you go to take a mini vacation when you need some time out?
Liya Kebede: “I’m testing it out a little bit. With the kids, we’ve gone to Connecticut a little bit, the Hamptons sometimes. I think with New York, it’s hard – you almost need to get on a plane. I don’t know the north [of the state] much, but people tend to like it.”
THE OUTNET: Do you have any style icons?
Liya Kebede: “I think I learned a lot on the job – more than anything, you know? Working with amazing designers and stylists and watching closely how they put things together – it’s amazing! We’re so lucky to have free education on set! I really learnt everything on the job.”
