Paloma on writing a collection of personal essays:
“The way I look at work is: Let’s say I lost all my memories, I can always look back at these things, and they exist,” she says, referring to the multitudinous shoots she’s done since breaking into the industry in 2015. “I want to be the arbiter of those things.”

Magazine will be available on newsstands starting October 8th. The model discusses her collection of essays, her method of walking the runway, and her close friends in the industry.

Paloma on the importance of her long-term friendships with models like Bella Hadid, Precious Lee, and Imaan Hammam:
“Having these long-term friendships that have gone through stuff like drug addiction, grief, loss…and still being able to weather that,” says Elsesser, “it’s taught me more than any romantic relationship, tenfold.”
