Rebecca Dayan is one of those girls who makes being a creative overachiever look easy. Originally from a small village in the south of France, the actress/artist/model moved to Paris to study art and fashion when she was 18. It wasn't long until she realized that what she really wanted to do was act and moved to New York to pursue her dream. This year, Rebecca is busier than ever - H, her film that premiered at Sundance this year is anticipating release, she has an art residency in New York that will be followed by an exhibition, she is illustrating a series for friend, Paula Goldstein's book, and is finishing the script for a short film that will be shot in the summer.
Below, Rebecca shares some of her favourite vintage spots in the cities she knows best, the different things that inspire her, and whose closet she raids most often.
How does living in LA influence your style - as opposed to living in New York or Paris?
LA is definitely more laid back, but I think I just mix it up a little differently. I mainly travel with the same pieces, I just style them differently [for each city].
Best vintage in LA? New York? Paris?
LA: Bustown Modern, Scout, The Way We Wore
NY: Resurrection, What Goes Around Comes Around
Paris: Pretty Box
Do you have an all-time favorite vintage find?
It's not really a find, but it's the leather jacket I've had since I was a kid.
Anything stolen from parents or siblings?
Yes, I regularly raid my grandmother's closet - it's full of gems and custom made dresses. My last favourite is an all-embroidered Indian silk jacket.
Anyone who has majorly influenced your style?
No one in particular. I find inspiration in a lot of things: old movies, Twin Peaks, pictures from Studio 54, pictures of my mom and my aunt when they were young, and people around me.
One thing you're always on the hunt for...
One thing you have way too many of...
I don't, I constantly get rid of stuff.
