Damaged / Goods: What led you to originally pursue a career in modeling?

Hailee Workmon: I think I mostly got into it because it's constantly keeping me on my toes. I'm a makeup artist, an illustrator, and I work two jobs so modeling was like I got to breathe and still be happy with the outcome.

Damaged: Who would you say is your ultimate fashion inspiration?

Hailee: I don't think there's one person that comes to mind because it's completely different each day and that's the most fun of it. But when I think hard it's gotta be Bowie, he was always unapologetically himself in everything he did.

Damaged: Favorite fashion brands?

Hailee: I'm so in love with everything Gucci creates but mostly thrift stores are my pal to try to mimic the pricey shit.

Damaged: In terms of music, who are your top artists of the moment?

Hailee: Flvke, Air, Ruby Haunt, Pond

Whats your damage? 

Hailee: A few years ago I would've never seen myself where I am and where I'm going. Weighed down by the pressure of being perfect and battling with insecurities was the hardest part. Men getting in my way and doubting me only pushed me further to realize my full potential. Dreaming too big is the best thing you can do because you'll never stop trying to work hard. You don't have to stick to only one thing because people think you need a career. I wanted to do too many things, so I'm doing them all.
