EXCLUSIVE: A Model Life: Constance Jablonski


The Fall shows weren’t short on surprise appearances from big-name models (Malgosia! Isabeli! Kristen McMenamy! Kirsten Owen!) Still, there was one boldfaced catwalker who went notably missing from the runway: That’d be French stunner and Estée Lauder face Constance Jablonski, who was otherwise occupied with shoots for the beauty giant—including this one. Lauder has produced a day-in-the-life video with the unlikely superstar, who shot to international fashion fame after her brother sent pictures of her to an agency in the North of France “for the fun of it.” Click to watch Jablonski take the streets of New York, and read on below to find out what makes her tick—including a newfound obsession with acting. Could the silver screen be next for Constance? We’ll be watching.

Favorite Fall Shows: “I really loved Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Haider Ackermann, and Louis Vuitton.”

New York or Paris? “I will never be able to choose. New York for the unique mix of people, the energy, the opportunity, and the dream! Paris for the most beautiful city, the romance, my French roots, and the little terraces in spring, where you can hang out all evening.”

What are you listening to right now? “I listen to so many different kinds of music. Right now, I’m addicted to Florence and the Machine, Depeche Mode, and Damien Rice.”

What are you reading right now? “I’m actually reading the book by Harold Guskin, How to Stop Acting. I want to learn about the acting world.”

You’re trapped on a desert island, and the only beauty product you can have with you is…: “[It's] a real struggle to choose! I would have to take my [Estée Lauder] Bronze Goddess Sun Indulgence Lotion for Face SPF 30.”

Snack-attack indulgence: “Cashew nuts.”

Favorite designers: “There are too many! Olivier Theyskens, Hedi Slimane, Stella McCartney, and Olivier Rousteing at Balmain.”

If you weren’t a model, you’d be…: “I would probably be a plastic surgeon.”

The one piece of clothing you can’t live without is…:“My Perfecto leather jacket. It’s a timeless piece that works both day and night, and can be casual or chic.”

The best perk about my job is… “The great thing about being a model is that you can ask all of the amazing hairdressers to give you a haircut on set or backstage at a shoot. I actually remember my last haircut; Odile Gilbert did it in Paris.”

Where do you go when you need to unwind? “Marrakech. A Moroccan bath can be so relaxing.”
