Model Selena Forrest can stalk down a runway like a boss, but off duty, the Louisiana-born tomboy prefers to PlayStation and chill in her Gucci flip-flops. Here’s how her perfect weekend day plays out.
UP AND AT ‘EM:
I wake up, realize I actually have some time for once, and go back to sleep. Eventually, I get up and brush my teeth. I wash my hair once a week, so maybe today’s the day. I don’t use shampoo, just conditioner—one from Tresemmé (3; $4.99, target.com)—since my hair gets dried out backstage. I usually wash my face with water and Aveeno cleansing pads (1; $6.79, ulta.com). I use both sides to get all the dirt off, then I’ll put on some moisturizer from Aveeno. I’ve used those forever, and my skin is pretty clear. No makeup—I wear so much for work—just some Burt’s Bees (2; $3.99, jet.com) on my lips. I have a breakfast bagel with eggs, bacon, and avocado, and I could do some Swiss cheese on that. I want most of the food homemade on my perfect Saturday.

Imagine a big living room with beanbags and a projector playing PlayStation 4 (5; $399.99, target.com). I teleport my dad [here to New York] to cook ribs—shout-out to my dad! I’m playing Call of Duty with my brothers and my girlfriend. Her name is Aqua. She’s Japanese and black; she’s very pretty. She’s everywhere on the perfect Saturday, or else it wouldn’t be perfect. Maybe we’ll go to a jewelry store and get custom silver diamond chains or matching grills. I’m wearing a fur-lined onesie with pockets—this isn’t a sexy onesie—and my Gucci flip-flops with flowers on them (4; $290, gucci.com).
My girlfriend and I are on a pretty roof, and we have McDonald’s delivered from Paris (it tastes better there). We skydive down and go to the Alexander Wang after party, which was amazing [this season]; he had a 7-Eleven truck giving out food, and people were performing. Anything can happen if you dream big.
