What’s your full name?

Amanda Josephine Davis.

Where were you born and where are you living?

I was born in Thousand Oaks and I currently live there.

Any nicknames?

Amanda Panda.

What do you think about when someone’s taking a photo of you?

I think about how lucky I am, that I get to do what I’ve always wanted to do.

From the inside perspective… fact or fiction: what’s the deal with models who constantly post photos of junk food, does it actually go down the hatch?

Well haha I can only speak for myself… there’s really no food pictures on my Instagram and it’s because I’m too busy eating that In N Out burger.

Favorite mag…………..trick question. Obviously What Youth:) What’s your second favorite mag?

Haha yes besides What Youth I’d have to say Damaged Magazine. I appreciate the style and art.

What’s your go-to ensemble?

Sunglasses. That’s all I really care about.

Considering the large majority of good looking humans California inhabits, what’s your favorite quality that helps you stand out?

Hmm, Id like to think my hazel eyes.

White sheep or black sheep?


What fictional character are you…also a trick question. Always be Batman.

Spongebob. His life is hilarious.

You win a lifetime supply of one item, what is it?

Trolly Eggs for sure.

What’s something you’ve done worth bragging about?

Hmm back when I was a freshmen I played on the JV Basketball team. The freshman team needed some big time help during their championship game, so the coach called me up and asked if I would play. Long story short, I scored enough points for them to win the championship.

What’s something you wish you could do worth bragging about?

I’d love to brag about my garage full of sports cars.

Why haven’t you done it yet?


You win the lottery, what’s the money going to?

First thing I’d buy is a Porsche.

Best pickup line that’s ever been used on you?

Ahh man there’s too many! Kidding, my boyfriend pulls out some good cheesy ones occasionally.

“If I don’t laugh at my outfit a little bit each morning, I’ll change.” Langley Fox told us this on the roof of the Ace Hotel after the World Premiere of Cluster.

This shoot was inspired by the historic shot of Kate Moss reading in the bathtub shot by Sante D’Orazio for Vogue Italia in 1995. And while you need say no more (you had us at Kate Moss), this ode to the icon photographed by Mark Powell caught our eye. The smokey-eyed-but-somehow-adorablely-sexy literati in her underwear…
