“I’ve walked for Chanel four or five times, and you never know what you’re going to get,” says Michi (pronounced Mickey, “like the mouse”) Delane. But the model admits that this past season’s runway rocket was the biggest surprise yet. Delane, who arrives to the Cut’s shoot in a Polo Bear sweater, was scouted at a musical festival. Since then, she’s walked for Hermès and Stella McCartney, and starred in Chloé’s latest campaign. Read on for her lightning-round answers to our interview questions.
