STYLE LIKE U spends some time inside Jenny Shimizu’s closet.

“[The first time I saw myself as a model was when] my friends woke me up at four in the morning and took me to Times Square. I saw the Banana Republic billboard that I shot with Bruce Weber. There was just a picture of my face, and underneath, it said ‘American Beauty.’ It still makes me have the chills. Never in my life did I think that I was beautiful.”

From the source: “My friends Tim and Bobby were fighting over the attentions of Jenny Shimizu who flew to London especially for Christopher’s show. They both ended up best friends with the superstar already organising dates in New York. Jenny was also getting into the frivolity taking photos of posing models backstage with her phone.”
