Ever ethereal supermodel Kirsty Hume has been nailing the super-natural chic we all aspire to these days long before it became so stylish. This spring, she’s announcing a new fashion collaboration with Velvet by Graham & Spencer and, to celebrate, we’re giving away of one of the exclusive collections best pieces on Instagram later today.

The Velvet x Kirsty Hume collection is perfectly reflective of Kirsty’s Topanga-inspired, modern meets vintage aesthetic. It’s no surprise this L.A. beauty includes painting, yoga and her own body weight in herbal tea each day to keep life in perfect balance. We’re loving everything Kirsty’s dishing up below, from sunrise starts to cozy vegan recipes. Scroll through our morning with Kirsty below and then pop over to catch our video with her and a favorite spring dinner recipe

From our friends


  1. I’ve just gotten into daily nettle leaf tea, too! It’s so good for the adrenals, and is the ultimate reproductive herb enhancing egg production, as well as ridding the body of toxic estrogens from plastics. It has 40 trace minerals including bone building silica. I sometimes combine it with raspberry leaf.

  2. Gig and Kendall are by no means supermodels. They are working models simply because of their family’s fame (notoriety) and the amount of Instagram followers they each have. I’m not sure what “fashion” you have been following for decades, because Kirsty Hume is indeed a supermodel. I grew up reading Vogue and clearly remember her being in the magazine all of the time in the 90’s.

  4. Why should we be concerned about whether X or Y is/is not a ‘supermodel’ or what qualifies them for this dubious accolade ? It’s really only about the inordinate amount of money they earn which in the end, is quite appalling really. Aren’t there more meaningful issues in any person’s life to be concerned about?

  5. I will work on getting the book you’ve recommended but in the meantime I had a similar question to an earlier post: What about matcha powder? Is one cup of matcha (powder) tea really equivalent to about 5 cups of green tea?
