When was the last time a person's style just took your breath away? Last year? Last week, maybe, but it's safe to say that it is a rare occurrence. Well, breathe deeply, because plus-size model Felicity Hayward's got a flamboyant and theatrical fashion sense that makes us want gasp, do high kicks, and throw on head-to-toe hot pink all at once. We first discovered the model-slash-artist on Instagram documenting her wild seaside weekend jaunts, cabaret extravaganzas, and Somerset House showcases. We just had to meet this whirlwind of creativity for ourselves and find out what makes her tick. The short answer: everything.
We caught up with Hayward on a very sunny day in East London to rifle through her wardrobe, talk to her about the plus-size modeling scene, and share beauty tips. Fill your lungs, and come along.
