Lucy Evans has one of those gazes. You know, the ones photographers and editors rave about (the one every model is practicing in the mirror). This lets her go from soft and sweet to edgy and editorial with a quick furrow of the brow, which takes us by no surprise when she debuted as a Givenchy exclusive. It just made sense.
Growing up in Stoke-On-Trent, a small pottery town in England, she was discovered at a young 13-years-old while shopping around with friends. “As a kid I was so mischievous, always playing in the garden with some friends. I wanted to be an artist,” she says. Here, we capture Lucy in a very natural setting, donning simple wardrobe and showing Playing Fashion what those eyes are made of.
MODELING HAS TAUGHT ME
how to embody a lot of different characters from all walks of life. I remember walking for Givenchy, I needed to have a fierce persona and that was something I had never seen in myself before.
STYLE IS SIMPLE
and you’ll usually see me in my jeans and a t-shirt with my favorite black boots. I’ll wear brands like Alexander Wang to J Brand and Brandy Melville and my fragrance is YSL Black Opium.
MY FAVORITE MEAL
would include fish and quinoa or sweet potato with vegetables. Oh, and 80% cocoa chocolate with a glass of almond milk – my guilty pleasure!
ALWAYS REMOVE MAKEUP
before going to bed and exercising. I use everything Kiehl's including their toner, cleanser and moisturizer. For makeup, a tint of foundation and Sisley's L’Orchidee highlighter blush.
MY FAVORITE WAY TO KEEP IN SHAPE
is to do bikram yoga, although I will never turn down a game of netball! I love to be active. Follow that with some lemon water.
WHEN I RELAX
I go to Moddershall Oaks hotel spa in Stone as much as I can when I’m home. Other than that, I have a book or a sketchbook with me at all times.
having real friends. All you really need is a positive attitude and some pizazz!
MY INSTAGRAM IS
essentially my diary. Scrolling through my posts brings back so many memories and experiences. It's great that it's so easily accessible to everyone.
