Jessica Stam's decade-long career of catwalking and campaign-starring has included stints for just about every major fashion brand under the sun. The Canadian native and current New Yorker has worked for everyone from Karl Lagerfeld to Cover Girl. Now she's adding G-Shock to the list serving as an ambassador for the brand's Baby G watches. (For the record, Stam had a translucent baby blue Baby G back in the day.)
I caught up with the supermodel at the brand's big annual bash (where Eminem performed!) and found out what she's shopping for lately, how it feels to make drastic hair changes, her least-favorite fashion trends--and more.
What's on your shopping list for fall?
I want to flats--sneakers, actually. I need more sneakers.
Last thing you bought?
New jeans from Acne and Blk Dnm. High waisted with straight legs.

Go-to summer outfit:
Jean shorts, T-shirt, and strappy sandals.
I'm not really into the wedge sneaker. I've just always thought it looked weird. Also, pants with a dress over top. I think it's difficult to wear. I guess it depends on the individual; I guess certain people can pull it off. I mean, you could make it work if you wore leggings, but that's a different thing, then, isn't it?
On changing her hair from blonde to dark and back to blonde:
When I dyed my hair blonde I also cut it very short, so that was a total transformation. It's funny how having long hair makes you feel very feminine and when you cut it all off--when you cut it very short--you suddenly feel very boyish.
It changed the way I dressed, it changed the way I did my makeup; I had to wear a lot less makeup. With short hair I dress more casual. But I have to be careful to make sure that I'm not dressing too casual. I don't want to look like I'm trying to dress like a boy! I love having short hair.
I mix and match my earrings, different ones in each ear. Right now, one is a heart and one is a cross, and then I also have a tiny diamond stud. I switch them out regularly but I sleep with them in. I twist them to make sure they are still movable and secure though!

Favorite jewelry shop:
Pre-fashion week fitness routine:
I just drink more water, try to get more sleep, and work out more often. But I don't really change that much because I live a pretty balanced life already anyway.
Favorite guilty pleasure snack:
Peanut butter and jelly on toast. Chocolate chips cookies.
TV show she's currently loving:
Orange is the New Black
Currently listening to:
My Morning Jacket and Beck. I just went to a Beck concert last week.
