Frequent flier status has always come with the territory for models in the fashion industry, but lately, it's been fun to take a peek inside their quieter at-home lives. Home tours and comfy outfits have replaced launch parties and red carpet looks, but that doesn't mean we get any less excited about industry news when it's revealed—and the latest model-brand team-up announcement is no exception. Martha Hunt has just been named Bvlgari's new U.S. ambassador and I'm thinking it's a match made in fashion heaven. Naturally, she broke the news on Instagram, and the post quickly went viral.
When Bvlgari offered an opportunity to interview Hunt, I jumped at the chance. The first question on my mind? I was curious about the pieces she's been wearing at home recently. "My fiancé’s oversized button-down because it feels effortlessly chic yet still comfortable," she told Who What Wear. "I love the Bvlgari B.Zero1 rings in black and white ceramic because I’m all about sticking to investment pieces right now! With it being summer, I’m also loving flowy dresses that make you feel like you’re on holiday while being at home. I’ve also been living in a pair of silk boy shorts! They are perfect for hot sticky summer days and go great with a bikini top." Amen to that.
I also asked Hunt about what she's looking forward to wearing for fall. She told us she has three specific outfit combos in mind, centered around coats, jeans, and leggings. "Since fall will probably be about embracing comfortable clothing for at-home meetings, I think we will be seeing more jewelry to dress up casual outfits," Hunt said. "I’m also into the idea of wearing an everyday 'uniform' look because it’s more sustainable—we can forget about the stigma around re-wearing an outfit! Some uniforms for me would be: a strong sandal with a coat because it’s unexpected and the perfect transitional outfit; high-quality leggings with chunky knitwear because it’s functional but chic and knitwear is sexy in a nondescript way; and vintage jeans with a tee, which feels more presentable when accessorized with timeless jewelry, like a Serpenti watch, and a pair of boots." Sounds chic to us. Scroll down to see the rest of the new campaign.
