Natasha Ghosn came from Houston to attend the School of the Art Institute.

Liz Armstrong: You dress pretty mod.

Natasha Ghosn: About mod culture, specifically, it's actually really lame. All these kids now are trying to be authentic mod--but mod was pills and dancing and being rail thin.

LA: Has anyone told you that you look like Edie Sedgwick?

NG: I didn't know who Edie Sedgwick was until a year ago. I was always all about Peggy Moffitt.

LA: What's with the mustard patent leather shoes?

NG: They're Prada, my only pair of Prada shoes. They have purple stitching. I really love the little details in clothes that maybe people won't really notice but I know they're there.

LA: You like detail but you're not wearing any accessories?

NG: It's hard to accessorize with crazy patterns like this--it gets to be too much. But confidence is a great accessory. You have to wear it like you mean it.
