Natasha Liu Bordizzo on Her Jaw-Dropping Movie The Voyeurs

Final time we spoke, which was in 2019, you mentioned you had been rather than reawakening your internal baby together with your style selections. The place are you at at present by way of your private model?

I’ve no consistency. That’s for certain. I really feel like I’m rising up. I simply turned 27, and for The Voyeurs premiere and press, I began embracing my pure frizz, and I went for a heavy smoky eye as a result of I used to be like, “Screw it. Let’s do horny French glam stylish.” I’ve had a extra pure search for most of my life, particularly with make-up, and now, I’m exploring wanting a little bit sexier and older, and that’s simply the place I’m at. And I’ve reclaimed having the ability to be female. I’ve talked about this in interviews earlier than, and I really had a terrific discuss with Zazie Beetz [about it], the place we had been each like, “Yeah!” I feel I’ve simply desexualized myself for your entire first few years of my profession as a result of I wished to be taken significantly. I might flip as much as conferences lined head to toe and searching very tomboyish. There’s this bizarre factor—a minimum of I felt it—once you had been tremendous female, you wouldn’t be taken significantly, which is an issue in itself. I felt like if turned up in a cute little polka-dot costume or one thing at a gathering, I wouldn’t be taken as significantly. So now, I’m reclaiming having the ability to really feel female and never feeling prefer it makes me look actually younger or immature. It’s like, “No, I’m simply having enjoyable and having fun with myself, and I’m clearly a powerful, impartial girl who has her personal profession, however I may nonetheless look actually female and girly or no matter you need to name it.” In order that’s been very nice. I’ve been carrying much more clothes currently and simply exploring extra of that. I’m method much less of a tomboy than I was. 

Is there a glance you end up gravitating towards in the intervening time? 

I at all times wish to retain a component of “barely bizarre” with any outfit. I don’t wish to look so predictable—like, “Oh sure, she’s carrying that minimize that’s actually on-trend proper now, and people pearl beaded necklaces are actually on-trend proper now. All this is sensible.” Yesterday, I used to be at brunch with my buddies, and I had this quite simple white linen costume on, however then I had a loopy quantity of gold and bronze necklaces, and I wore a cowboy hat I purchased in Mexico. Simply, you understand, one thing enjoyable. I at all times wish to have a component of “what’s that vibe?” 

I really like the cowboy look proper now! 

Yeah, I’m tremendous into it. I purchased these items from locations after I was in an actual cowboy temper. The hat I bought in Mexico, and I purchased boots in Idyllwild, which has this very weird, dreamy vibe to it. Once I purchase items of clothes or equipment that I wouldn’t essentially usually put on however purchase them from locations I’ve been touring, it’s like, “Oh, that is from that place,” so I really feel extra comfy carrying it. I don’t know if I may purchase a bunch of cowboy stuff in L.A. and really feel as genuine carrying it. I’m certain it’s nonetheless superb as a result of L.A. could be the Wild Wild West, however I wish to get it from different locations and produce it again.
