FAULT: What do you love most about the modelling industry? Hanna: I think what I love most is that I’m able to portray so many different looks and try so many different styles. I just get to meet so many different people and fashion has always been one of my favourite things and main inspirations so the fact that I get to work with that is great. I’m only 5’2” so I never really thought modelling would be a career and the fact that I was able to make something out of that, and just prove that you don’t have to be like 5’10” to be able to do modelling. You are based in L.A. but have you ever considered moving to one of the fashion capitals for your career? For now I love living in L.A. A lot of my modelling is based there just because of my size. I feel like they’re more acceptable to tattoos and edginess, but recently I have been doing more out here in London and in Tokyo as well. What do you like most about London? I think the fashion. I feel like people are a little bit more edgy and daring in London compared to L.A. and I also love the transportation in London. I hate driving and in L.A. you have to have a car to get anywhere, there’s no real public transportation and here it’s so easy to get anywhere.
What are your favourite trends of the moment? Right now for Fall and Winter I’m just loving oversized shirts as dresses and anything comfortable. I love just wearing big oversized clothes and pairing it with a really crazy pair of shoes cause I like height. I love the whole plaid, tartan trend that’s happening right now and I just wear a lot of black. I love KTZ!
How would you describe your personal style? I guess it kind of changes day by day. I do love to be comfortable but one day I might go for a more edgy late 70s punk vintagy look and then I could be more boho 60s chic type of thing with a goth inspiration. I’m always changing. What’s a typical day in the life of Hanna Beth? I guess I don’t really have typical days because I’m always doing something different whether it’s with modelling or something that has to do with my blogging. I’ve been blogging now for 7-8 years so I might be going into Buzz Media and having meetings or I work with a few other fashion brands doing collaborations so I’ve been doing that. When I’m not working I like to just hang out with my friends, go out dancing, go to the cinema, keep it chilled.
In previous interviews your spoken about your spirituality and about ‘big loves’ and things like that. Can you tell us a bit about this life philosophy? I guess I just try to live my live to the fullest each day and if something’s not making me happy I don’t want to do it, even if it’s a company I don’t fully believe or style I’m not fully in to – I wouldn’t want to promote something I’m not in to because I just feel like life’s too short. I don’t want to settle. I try to always stay positive and make the most of every situation.
What is your FAULT? I’m really hard on myself and I also overthink too much.
