Dylan Penn: Modeling is strange

Dylan Penn

Dylan Penn prefers editorial shoots, but knows campaigns are where the money is.

The 23-year-old daughter of Robin Wright and Sean Penn has some seriously impressive Hollywood genes, which have seen her score several modelling jobs.

In a new shoot for vmagazine.com, the star shows off her stunning looks in a red trouser suit with just a bra underneath and a demure floral pussy-bow dress. It’s jobs like these she most looks forward to.

“I like doing the editorial stuff,” she mused in the accompanying interview. “Because it’s nice to do something that’s more me. But modelling for brands and the things to make money... I guess I don’t really like being the mannequin. It’s a very strange concept.”

She might look polished in the photos, but in real life Dylan prefers to dress down. However, she is aware of how her uniform of tank tops and Chuck Taylors might come across.

“I feel like this sometimes comes off as I don’t give a sh*t, which is so not the case,” she assured the publication. “I just like to be comfortable. I wish I felt comfortable in a sundress, but I just don’t.”

It’s not always been glitz and glamour for the stunning blonde. She started off as a pizza delivery girl, but soon found she was getting attention for more than the tasty toppings.

“And then I started delivering pizzas, and that was what led me into modelling, because I just hated it,” she recalled, adding she was often mistaken for a stripper when she rang customers’ bells.

“I was kind of flattered, in a way? And then I had to keep explaining that I was delivering pizza.”

But Dylan never needed the reassurance – she’s always had plenty of confidence.

“I’ve always been extremely comfortable in my body, and I think that comes from how I grew up. It sounds so cheesy, but it was never about what you look like on the outside, it was about what you really give,” she revealed.
