#badgirlcrush -Tiffany Cadillac


#badgirlcrush -Tiffany Cadillac



Q: Can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?

A: I'm Tiffany Cadillac, 27 years old, an island gyal who lives in Tokyo.
I love vintage style and music, I pose for clothing labels once in a while and I'm starting to make music now.


Q: Where did you grow up?

​A: A few years after I was born in Tokyo, my family relocated in Jamaica which my father is from. I was running around barefooted, picking mangoes and guava, always lurking on the beach, and surrounded by Jamaican music. I lived there until I was around 11 years old, and came back to Japan. I visit occasionally and since it's my second home.

Q: Where do you find yourself most inspired or gain inspiration from?

A: My pot of inspiration is from so many things, film, photography, art, music etc.. But for style wise I like to look at vintage pictures of real people in everyday life, and also backstage pictures of showgirls and vintage girly magazines.



Q: Is there a particular era of time you identify with the most? 

A: I love everything from the late 40's - early 60's! My style will change 360' every time, I would feel 50's glam one day, then the next day I'd be wearing a mini dress tied with a beehive like a 60's girl group.

Q: Can you recommend your favourite clothes shops, record shops, bars and art galleries in Tokyo?

A: There are a lot of stores I like in Tokyo but for vintage I would check out Boop Poop a Doop in Ebisu/Daikanyama and Fizz vintage in Kouenji. If it's outside on Tokyo, I like Samantha's vintage in Osaka. My friends and I always go out to see local bands play at a bar/venue called Heavy Sick in Hatagaya. I'm not a deep vinyl collector but For killer records I would check Anchor records in Shinjuku and of course I'd hop in any Disk Union if I'd pass by one.


Q: What do you love about living in Tokyo?

A: Tokyo is a busy, safe, and compact city, and it's so easy to travel. Although everything is modernized, tradition still exists, and I love to see traditional architecture and old atmosphere neighbourhoods.
Tokyo is the nearest city to my heart, But who knows, maybe  I would be living in a different city in a different country!

Q: What are your favourite movies? 

A: Usually I would watch a lot of documentaries but I grew up watching a lot of Audrey Hepburn movies and 50's romcoms are what I tend to go to for style inspirations.
I also love Teen B movies and 70's Blaxploitation films, I just love seeing bad girls misbehaving!





Q: Tell us about your favourite beauty products? Why you love them?

A: For skincare I go for natural things, like coconut oil to remove makeup and moisturize. I absolutely love MUJI beauty products and have using them for years. From toners to moisturizers and serums, their products are simple and ethical, and have a range of lines for every skin type.
My go to red lipstick would be everyone's favorite - Ruby woo. My favorite coral pink - Pink in the afternoon, very much like what Holly Golightly wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

For my brows, Shu Uemura hard formula eyebrow pencil is a staple in my beauty kit, I'm so used to it that I'm afraid that I can't use anything else!
I also love perfumes, more on the sweet, heavy and sensual notes are my jam. Black Orchid - Tom Ford, J'adore -  Dior,  Amber and Patchouli - Jo Malone is my mostly beloved scents.








Q: Who are some of your favourite musicians? 

A:
Such a difficult question, as I love all kinds of music, I would play anything from Vocal jazz, old R&B, authentic ska, early reggae, 70's punk and 80's hardcore, fuzzy funk, Latin soul, all the way to conscious hip hop, you name it! The list will go on...but I adore Billie Holiday and I relate to her a lot. If we're talking about modern artists, my album pick would be... : Never twice - Nick Waterhouse, We're Rollin' - Soul Crap, Shrunken head familia - Bobby's Bar, Twice - Hollie Cook, Coming Home - Leon Bridges.


Q: If you could pick one, who would be your Ultimate Bad Girl? Why?

A: It's so hard to pick one, i can't choose from Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone or Pam Grier but Ugh, cannot be said enough, Pam Grier! The looks, the sauciness, she kick ass and be flaming hot at the same time who wouldn't want to be a fox like Pam, although Eartha taught me how to be a wild kitten and Nina is my true hero.



Q: What are you currently working on?

A:  I'm actively working on my own music project, been recording and writing songs for a while now. I hope to share an EP really soon, and a set of covers with a few of my favourite tunes by the end of the year!

Q: What do you love about The Original Bad Girl? 

A: First of all I love the prints and the cut, it's form fitting and beautiful. You can pair it with anything. For a girly girl but tom boy at heart like me, I need styles that can play both parts, It's easy to dress it up and down, became such an important label for my wardrobe!

Q: What does being 'bad' mean to you? 

A: To be ambitious and empowering, ready for everything, knows what to do and what to get, and doesn't give a bloody shit about what ppl might say!


Q: What are your goals for 2017?


A: 2017 is for a lot of changes and new encounters. I've met so many beautiful individuals already and I hope for more, plus I have my music cooking, so that's pretty exciting for me and I hope for a successful recording so I can get to share soon.
