Kati Nescher Braved Sandy to Cover British Vogue

The 29-year-old, who really broke into the modeling biz two years ago ("I thought, 'Why not? Let's try it one final time and maybe it'll be a good moment.' I got lucky"), talked about her ascent to runway ubiquity, taking care of her young son, and her beauty routine — no makeup, no blow-drying, and "some baby cream on both my lips and wet hair" — for the magazine's February issue. Nescher called Patrick Demarchelier, who shot her cover, "such a nice person ... We did an amazing job in just a few hours and this was all during Hurricane Sandy in New York. I was impressed with him and I hope to work with him again soon. The light that he decided to use was perfect," requiring plenty of D batteries. (She also enjoyed the HOT 97 background music.)
