Here are a few tidbits about Cris she answered during a recent interview with Elle.com
What are must-have items in your bag for fashion week?
CRIS: I have mascara, deodorant, blush; hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works is my thing. It smells so good. I have an eyebrow brusher because I'm really into my eyebrows—my bag is so heavy! I have my journal so I can write down my castings and my thoughts and my goals, who I meet. I try to remember so many people, especially casting directors. I write down the things I try on so if I like something I can go back and look it up.
What food keeps you going through the week?
CRIS: Granola, apples, bananas—I love fruit.
What are you listening to this week?
CRIS: I've been into Adele. Sometime it can be stressful so it"s really nice to hear her voice—it's incredible.
Are you on Twitter? Tumblr?
CRIS: I still don't get how Twitter works. Tumblr I will go on if a photographer takes my picture. It's a good place to keep up with new faces.
What do you like to wear off-duty?
CRIS: I'm laid back; I like to wear slouchy things. I go to H&M to grab little things here and there. I love fashion and I'm learning so much about how to put things together.Source: Elle.com, FashionGoneRogue.com
