Kilo Kish Loves Vintage Hawaiian Shirts, Bold Brows

The multi-hyphenate shares the philosophy behind her too-cool style.


With her never-ending list of titles and talents (model, artist, and musician are just a few), it is no surprise 24 year-old Kilo Kish has a multi-faceted style to match. Taking time from promoting her new EP, “Across,” and jetting between New York and L.A., Kish filled us in on her go-to beauty products, latest lusts, and summer must-haves.

Define your style in three words: Classic, quirky, grandma.

Daily uniform: A nautical striped t-shirt and some denim cutoff shorts.

Greatest hits: A super sparkly Michael Jackson cardigan that I wore for my first performances.

Finishing touches: Fun, poofy hair, or hair styled in an interesting shape.

Nighttime look: Chanel Vamp nail polish, NARS Paloma contour blush, Smashbox eyebrow duo for thick brows, and Armani Rouge Ecstasy lipcolor with Maison Kitsuné varsity jacket over anything.

Best recent discovery: Murakami Sushi on Melrose in Los Angeles. It’s the best spot for an awesome sushi bowl.

Favorite stores: I don’t shop that often, but now and then Maison Kitsuné, A.P.C., and Opening Ceremony.

Style pet peeve: For myself, I wear the same thing, the same ways over and over. When I was in high school and took myself more seriously I wouldn’t repeat an outfit for like 4 months; I had fun with so many combinations. But I’ve grown lazy (or wiser) in knowing when I like it, I stick with it.

Style icons: Andre 3000, Chinatown old ladies, and anyone’s grandmother.

Last purchase: A Contax film camera.

Lusting after: Chanel espadrilles.

Favorite haunts: NYC: Cafe Select, Lovely Day. LA: Jones, Goldie’s, Murakami Sushi, No Vacancy.

Summer must-haves: Vintage Hawaiian shirts.

What’s always in your bag: Tory Burch cat eye sunglasses, NARS lipgloss in sixties fan that I use for lips and cheeks, a little bottle of Mario Badescu SPF aloe moisturizer, RMS Beauty living luminizer, Chowards violet flavored mints.
