INTERVIEW BY ALEX CATARINELLA
Q: If you could raid your style icon’s closet, whose would it be?
A: I have to say I’m constantly still raiding my mom’s closet. She’s definitely one of my style icons. I live for her vintage collection! Unfortunately we do not have the same shoe size.
And while we’re on the subject of family, how does your mother and father [Duran Duran’s John Taylor] feel about your career as a model and as a DJ?
They’re both incredibly supportive of me. I couldn’t ask for anything more from them. I’m constantly being given advice, but it’s all good stuff — I’m lucky that I have parents who understand what I’m doing.
Could you pick a favorite concert-going experience of yours?
I’ve had so many! I’m a huge rap fan though, so getting to see Dr. Dre, Snoop, 50 Cent, and even 2Pac on the same stage at Coachella last year was possibly the best thing ever. What made it even more special was that I was with so many of my good friends. I really lost it when 50 played “In Da Club,” which is one of my favorite jams.
Name a Favorite Actress Who Rocks:
Natalie Portman. I also think she’s one of the most beautiful women ever.
Lara Stone. She is a FOXY lady.
Describe your style in five words:
Classic, cute, easy, comfortable, snazzy.
Favorite Twitter account to follow:
Sophia Rossi (@sofifii) from HelloGiggles.com! She’s hilarious.
How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day this year?
Unfortunately I was in London apart from my boyfriend! So I had dinner with my mom and came back to my hotel to a lovely bouquet of red roses and chocolates. He got them there from LA! Impressive.
What are your top five favorite songs to DJ?
“Too Drunk To Fuck” – Nouvelle Vague
“I’m Real” – Ja Rule & J.Lo
“Do I Do” – Stevie Wonder
“Hypnotize” – Notorious B.I.G.
“Tribulations” – LCD Soundsystem
What is the most overplayed song on your iTunes?
“Strange Overtones” – David Byrne & Brian Eno
Favorite Duran Duran song?
Atlanta, 20, is the nearest rock has to royalty. She’s the daughter
of John Taylor, the sexiest member of Duran Duran, and former wild child TV presenter Amanda de Cadenet.
Both parents have gone on to make equally edgy new alliances: Atlanta’s stepfather is Nick Valensi of rock band the Strokes, and her stepmother Gela Nash is the co-founder of Juicy Couture.
Unsurprisingly, Atlanta has inherited a dual passion for fashion and music: she’s a model and an aspiring DJ, recently playing her first gig at a London Fashion Week party for Topshop. And her eclectic fashion sense, which she says made her unpopular at school in Los Angeles, has won her legions of fans online.
She’s moved from LA to London to kick-start her career, though she admits she’s still not sure what it’s going to be. ‘I have so many things
I want to try,’ she says. ‘My dad says to me, “Whatever you’re going to do, it hasn’t been invented yet, so don’t worry about it.”’
Strange but true Keanu Reeves once came to see her perform at her school’s Christmas play (he was engaged to her mum).
Her middle name is Noo – short for Noodlehead, her parents’ pet name for each other.
