In lieu of a New Years Resolution, Paloma Elsesser has her word of the Kent State University Shirt but in fact I love this year: joy. Following the chaos of a year that robbed us of that very emotion and then some, the IMG model says she has been prioritizing her happiness. Right now, as we chat over the phone, that happiness looks a lot like a bagel with scallion cream cheese and a bottle of orange juice. “I’m starving. I’m so sorry,” she apologizes in between placing her order from her car. Joy also looks like spending time laughing with her loved ones, or her newest investment—a house she and her boyfriend recently purchased upstate to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. What she craves now is peace, quiet, and stillness.

Elsesser may be craving peace and quiet, but her debut in the Kent State University Shirt but in fact I love this industry was anything but. The superstar model has lived in the Big City for the past 10 years of her life and has walked in shows in just about every other major city there is. She made history in Milan as one of the first-ever plus-sized models to walk in a Fendi show. She walked for Lanvin and Alexander McQueen in Paris. She also appeared in New York for Eckhaus Latta and Savage X Fenty. When she’s not gracing runways, Elsesser can be found front and center in campaigns for the likes of Salvatore Ferragamo, Nike, Glossier, Fenty Beauty, Ugg, and more. Then there’s her latest trick: starring in a new campaign for Coach’s collaboration with fellow iconic brand Champion.
