My love for really well-made lingerie continues. I’ve just discovered the perfect set from my go-to lingerie brand Natori here at Macy’s. This beautiful royal blue hue designed by Josie Natori matches everything from my curtains to my favorite blanket. It’s a color of comfort. It’s a completely new take on the classic tee-shirt bra. The little lace and sheer accents make this super comfortable set extra luxurious. When I find something that works well on my body, hugs it in all the right places, and feels amazing on my skin, I just stick with it. I stick with what works and feels best for me, in any situation. It could be for a night of dancing in my favorite white tee. It could be hiking in a perfect pair of blue jeans. It could be on set at a shoot with a little silk dress. It’s in all of these situations that my undergarments play a huge role. I’m all for anything that allows me to move, and be completely comfortable in my own skin. Josie Natori’s elegant collection ranges from 30A to 44G, flattering women of all shapes and sizes. 2017 is for owning your own body in all of it’s uniqueness. I think I’ll take this set in black and pale pink to add to my collection.

I always feel most comfortable in my own skin when I’m with my older sister, Dylana. She’s the lady behind the lens for most of my photographs, and of course has starred alongside me for numerous campaigns. I never mind stripping down in a pair of undies for one of her artistic shots. As sisters, we actually have almost identical bodies. Tall, boyish, athletic. I guess you can call it a dancer’s body. Our motto is “imperfection is beauty.” Without imperfections, what would make us all each so special? Imperfections are inspiring. They make your think and see differently. Imperfections should be embraced and celebrated. Who cares if you’re not the girl next door. Growing up, I never looked like anyone in my class. Everything from my cultural background to my height. Not to mention, I had dreams that were larger than life, but with fashion, music, and art, I was able to find myself. Find and unleash what makes you feel beautiful.

I met the lovely and soft-spoken Georgia Larsen from London, on the set of my Free People October 2010 cover shoot back in the diz-ay. Can you believe how fast time flies? It was the first time any brand used real girls doing their own awesome s**t to model and style a total catalog. So the day of my shoot, I met a few awesome ladies like Georgia, a lingerie designer with long flowing blonde locks and killer bohemian style. Since then, she’s launched the beautifully chic brand, Dora Larsen…consisting of lace-y and feminine (without all the frills) lingerie sets complete with a choker. The choker a finishing touch to any dress you happen to throw on for a wild night out in the city. I totally have a soft spot for epic lingerie and pale pinks and blues. Always wear it for yourself. Love your body, no matter what shape or form. And own it. My boyish body has never felt more feminine.
