Fill In The Blanks with Malgosia Bela

Our fall muse, Malgosia Bela, while insouciantly sexy, possesses a personal style ethos not unlike our own. She’s happiest in a loose-fitting button-down and a great pair of jeans—and has recently developed a thing for overalls. Aside from her style, she’s just as likely to sing along to Fleetwood Mac with our crew as she is to stay in and clean the house. We played a little fill in the blanks to learn about her style of relaxing, her favorite music and where she goes to decompress.

When I want to get away…
I tend to stay in Europe in the summer, preferably in the south. In the winter, I try to visit warmer places: Mozambique, New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea.

When I’m feeling stressed, I…
Do anything that brings me a sense of instant gratification: read a good book, have a cup of tea. Or, when I’m really stressed, I clean the house, arrange the closet, put all my receipts in order and even pay old parking tickets.

My astrological sign is…
Cancer, which means I’m sensitive, hyper and imaginative, yes, but I also try to keep my feet on the ground.

My beauty routine is…
Consistent but I change up products constantly. When I need a treat, I use Crème de la Mer.

When it gets cold, I wear…
A big jacket with almost nothing underneath.

Over the years, my personal style has…
Become more minimalist and simple, but I’d always describe myself as quite classic and masculine.

I love listening to…
Bruce Springsteen. I’m not very up to date.

The best live musical performance I’ve seen is…
Sister Sledge and Cat Power singing at my wedding.

Comfort for me is….
Pajamas and slippers. On nights out, I make sure my shoes aren’t going to kill me and that I can move comfortably.

My favorite piece from this shoot is…
The denim overalls. My first memory of wearing jeans is actually about overalls—a friend sent them from behind the Iron Curtain, in the ’80s.

I like to read…
Political magazines, CNN, BFMTV and French newspapers—but no blogs.

If I could learn another language, it would be…
Japanese. I love the food.
