Petra Collins’ Favorite Hair Product Comes from the Produce Aisle

She also curates the best playlists we’ve ever heard.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art hosted its seventh annual Film + Art Gala this past weekend, honoring legendary filmmaker George Lucas and celebrated artist Mark Bradford. And when we attended last weekend, the event was just as star-studded as ever, with three special guests in particular—the faces of Gucci Bloom’s new fragrance campaign, model Hari Nef, actress Dakota Johnson, and photographer (and perennial cool girl) Petra Collins.

Lucky for us, we were able to stop by as Petra was getting ready for the big night, which included changing into an *epic* Gucci gown custom-made by Alessandro Michele himself, and snacking on plenty of peanut M&Ms. In case you were wondering, yes, she’s just as down-to-earth and funny as we’d always hoped, especially for a 24-year-old who just published her first book, Petra Collins: Coming of Age—a retrospective on her already decade-long career. It also has a fuzzy pink cover! We chatted beauty must-haves—you’ll never catch her without an eyelash curler in her handbag—the joy of disco platforms, and why pimples should be celebrated rather than fixed with Facetune, all while listening to her “Slutty70s80s” playlist (seriously, look it up on Spotify now).

“I’m obsessed with Grace Jones, I love all her looks. Actually, I just went to a party that was ‘Paris Is Burning’ themed. I got to do Jerry Hall hair and that ’80s glam makeup. I never do that because I’m not going to do it as my day-to-day, but I had all these references of Jerry Hall and Grace Jones. Then there’s Octavia St. Laurent. She just had this glitter bodysuit that’s killer. I love those ’70s and ’80s glam looks.”
