We had the pleasure of photographing HEUCY Gal Claudia Wu, the Co-Editor of Cherry Bombe magazine, on a sunny afternoon. Cherry Bombe, in case you haven’t heard of it, is a kick-a** publication that Claudia and Kerry Diamond started to celebrate amazing women who love food. They profile “women who do cool sh*t” — and the magazine is an ode to all things delicious — so it was a match made in heaven. Check it out for some really great recipes and interviews with inspiring, interesting, dynamic women.
Claudia was the perfect “real life” example of how versatile the Perfect Ten dress is…because when Claudia isn’t designing and editing, she’s doing some pretty cool sh*t herself. We’re psyched to share some of her favorite things with you.
1) What is your favorite vacation spot of all time?
This is a tough one to answer since there are so many places I’d still like to go, but I had an amazing time driving around Sicily a few years ago. (This is also on our top ten list of where we want to go…check out AFAR magazine’s Palermo travel guide as a starting point!)
2) What is your favorite food?
Dark chocolate. (We concur, and love Mast Brothers because it comes from Brooklyn and it’s simply beyond).
3) What are you currently reading?
Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef. It’s Gabrielle Hamilton’s memoir. She owns the restaurant Prune in New York City. She’s just as amazing a writer as she is a chef.
4) What’s your favorite HEUCY outfit?
I’m torn between The Perfect Ten, The Weekender and The Burnout. They’re perfect for different occasions! (Don’t worry…you’re not missing something…the Burnout will be released next month! We have some great shots of Claudia in it, too! Stay tuned 🙂
5) If I had twenty free minutes right now, I would…
Take a nap or get a quick massage!
