Ever seen the video for "Music" by a little known artist named Madonna? Seattle set designer Gavin Derek redressed the LA nightclub where it takes place, and executed the design and aesthetic of the stunt limo, too. I don't know what you do at your 9 to 5, but that sounds like a pretty okay way to earn rent money.

Wearing The jacket is Naked and Famous from Barneys New York, the desert scarf is from Federal Army and Navy Surplus in Belltown, the boots are Old Gringo from Zappos, the sunglasses are from a street vendor in Saigon, and the shirts and pants were purchased in LA.

Your style in three words Rock-ish, Androgynous, Recognizable

Closet you'd most like to raid I'd raid the hell out of a closet shared by Lenny Kravitz and Steven Tyler, because I'm pretty sure that closet exists for me. I've always had a thing for long, flared rocker pants and pointy boots. And I like mixing together vintage and thrift and new and sometimes stupidly expensive. As a result, I don't feel I'm copying anything or anyone in particular, but instead, I'm wearing what's going on inside on the outside on any given day.

Digital inspiration To be completely honest, I don't do much digitally beyond email and Facebook. I am also not really much of a fashion consumer, so everything I have I either stumbled upon while shopping for props or found in some little shop while traveling somewhere out in the world. Hence, it is a total mishmash of individual pieces I like and then smash together, often without consulting a mirror… obviously.
