We recently caught up with model-turned-actress-turned-designer Erin Wasson at Blow New York, a hair salon in the city’s Meatpacking District. Erin looked radiant in black leather pants and a matching top. Her outfit was finished off with her fave pair of Rockports. We chatted with Erin as we looked over the Rockport’s fall line; Erin’s the new face of the brand, talked fashion, style and even had a blowout! This was a fabulous way to play hookey.

BettyConfidential: What was it about Rockport style that mad you say, “I want to be it’s face?

Erin Wasson: Well, I’m a girl from Texas—I’m an American girl, you know? And they are a really old school American brand. My personal take on style is very unfussy. It’s very much about being comfortable; being comfortable in your own skin and keeping things uncomplicated. When they approached me in the beginning I was a bit like “Rockport? Aren’t those the shoes that your dad wears?

Then when I went to the showroom and saw how they had integrated all of these like really fashion forward [styles].

(Erin reached over towards her right and pointed to one of the two shelves that displayed Rockport’s fall collection. She pointed to a pair of shoes.)

This is the first shoe that really did it for me, the Presia in leopard. It’s like wearing a sneaker because inside you’ve got all of the technology of an Adidas sneaker inside this rad shoe. So, for me I just think it’s a really good message for women, you now? The whole idea of not compromising and—you know—to be confident, stylish and comfortable… we need to hear [that].
