Last week, Denim Therapy had the opportunity to interview actress Rosario Dawson, who served as host of Kitson’s annual “Women’s Night” shopping event. The actress was in demand that evening, but she was a pro. The event served to launch the new G-Star x Kitson capsule collection. We’ve heard Rosario is a long-time fan of G-Star, but we had to hear it from this charming actress herself, whose portrayal of the gritty leader of a prostitute gang in “Sin City” is so unlike her persona in the flesh.
Why did you choose to support G-Star?
Gosh. I remember first seeing some G-Star jeans in New York years ago. And there was this jacket with a hood, and some top and some pants. There was an outfit I saw that reminded me of a traditional Korean dress and how it ballooned around the back. It was simply gorgeous. And these jeans I’m wearing (she pinches her shin), they are the Arc Super Skinny. Very comfortable. I actually don’t like hard jeans. I love these [jeans]. They look different on you than they do on the rack don’t they? I don’t know. I love everything about G-Star.
Wow, that’s quite an endorsement. I know you have to go, so quickly, when you travel, how do you pack your jeans?
I roll them. My mom sometimes helps me pack. We’re Puerto Rican. We roll. (She chuckles.)
You kid us! So then, how many pairs of jeans do you own?
You mean just G-Star alone? (She pauses for a second to think.) Gee, maybe over 40 pairs. Is that too much?
No Rosario. Forty is not too much at all. Photos courtesy of G-Star. By the way, did you know Rosario loves to go Planking? Follow Rosario on Twitter or Facebook. The G-Star x Kitson capsule collection is now available online and in stores at Kitson.
