Fashion week is about the designers, but it’s also about the models. Oh, is it about the models. One particular model we’ve had our eyes on is the sultry-eyed, cheekbone-endowed Kenya Kinski-Jones. Sure, her last name is proof she’s no stranger to the spotlight (her mother is actress Nastassja Kinski, and her father is music mogul Quincy Jones), but it wasn’t until recently that the platinum-haired model started earning cred among the fashion crowd, thanks to a little brand named Calvin Klein. The label recently tapped her to front its denim and watch campaign alongside actor Will Peltz (who also happens to be her real-life boyfriend). This past fashion week, Kinski-Jones sat front row for Tommy Hilfiger and Suno, with surely more shows to come this season.

Never ones to tire of learning models’ beauty secrets, we caught up with the model via email during one of her rare free moments and asked her for the beauty essentials she swears by during this super-cold, exhausting time. Keep scrolling to see her answers!

We called out Kinski-Jones as one of the faces to watch a while back: See the rest of the girls we’re dubbing beauty’s new cool crowd!
