You wouldn't necessarily expect a 20-year-old with an All-American appearance and Colorado upbringing to love rap. "Music says so much about who people are," said model Mackinley Hill on the set of our latest shoot as she jumped around to Future and Gucci Mane. If that's the case, it's safe to assume Mackinley likes a good time. A new up and coming face you're bound to start seeing more of, Mackinley started modeling two years ago. Signed with powerhouse agency IMG Models, who also represents her top model sister Taylor, Mackinley has already appeared in V Magazine, Elle Italia, and Town & Country. Shot in Los Angeles by DSTLD's co-founder Corey Epstein, here's a sneak peak of our newest products (coming soon!!) and a short Q&A with our muse in front of the lens.
My name is… Mackinley Hill.
I was born in… Palatine, Illinois.
If I wasn’t a model I would be… an interior designer.
My typical day consists of… going on castings and hanging out with my friends.
To stay focused I… put music on and drink coffee.
My favorite place to be is… my family's mountain house in Winter Park, Colorado. It's the most peaceful place on Earth.

I wear my denim… all the time. Canadian tuxedo is my favorite look.
