25 questions with rising model Anders Hayward

The dancer-turned-model smells like teen spirit, never touches his own face and rides a unicycle.
10 ноября 2017 г.

Saying that Anders Hayward has a lot on his plate is an understatement – the 22-year-old is a trained dancer, an experienced model and a newly minted actor. After being scouted while out on a shopping run, the freckled Briton became a breakout star in modelling, walking for Marc Jacobs, Luis Vuitton and Prada during his first season.

This winter, his freckled face will be seen on billboards all over the world, as he's one of the stars of H&M's magical holiday campaign, shot by his favourite photographer Tim Walker. 

We caught up with Anders in between shots on the set – a cold and very wet Northumberland – and asked him to share his top model secrets.
