Livingston on gracing an UPTOWN cover: “I feel privileged and honored by this opportunity, and, you know, I’m about to be fabulous on this cover, honey.”
On her look: “I’ve had an interesting relationship with the camera since about nine years old. I was too young for a lot of work that came my way because I looked older. As I matured, I constantly heard the word ‘androgyny.’ I was told I was masculine, but beautiful at the same time. I was confused.”
On being an anomaly: “I knew to take it and run, swiftly, and that charge lead me to my first ‘aha’ moment: speaking with (the fashion oracle) Bethann Hardison and being asked to come to New York City.”
On her drive: “I’m auditioning for films and modeling is picking back up, which makes me smile because I consider myself a supermodel. The world hasn’t even begun to get enough of me yet. There’s Beverly, Iman, Naomi and Tyra. And then there’s me, and trust, I can hold my own.”
