There's 1 Major Benefit to Cutting Off Your Hair

New York Fashion Week is never not chaotic, what with all the rushing to shows, squeezing through crowds, and trying to make time to do....just about anything else. But when we arrive at Sonequa Martin-Green’s hotel room ahead of Dion Lee, she tells us she’s more excited than stressed—in part because it’s her first NYFW show ever.

Her newbie status is most definitely news to us, given that the actress has starred on hit TV shows for years—including The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, and currently, Star Trek: Discovery—and that her style is always on point. So we asked Martin-Green exactly what was going through her mind as she primped and prepped, whether she gravitated toward a signature style, and if she thinks the apocalypse could ever really happen (because how could we not?).

“When I was in high school, I wanted to be a psychologist. I auditioned to be in a play my 10th grade year, just for fun, and the revelation dawned on me like drops from heaven. It completely arrested me. ‘This is what you’re supposed to do with your life.’ I felt it so deeply in my heart. I remember the moment vividly. I’m beyond grateful for that ‘call,’ and I’m grateful that I listened.”
