Mackenzie Chrzanowski

So, cool story about Kenzie. I'm currently in the process of expanding my blog, so I'm going to start taking my own photos of all the models I interview. Kenzie is going to be the first model that I do a shoot with, and I'm really looking forward to it! That being said, this interview was just too good not to post, and I've been sitting on it for almost 2 weeks! Kenzie has a very positive attitude, and I absolutely love her look! You wouldn't believe that she wishes she had a more "edgy" look to her. She lowkey wants to be a badass, but you'll find out more about that in the interview below ;)

OTC: What is your name?

MC: Mackenzie (aka Mack) Tayler Chrzanowski


OTC: How old are you?

MC: Just turned 22.


OTC: How tall are you?

MC: 5'10


OTC: How did you get into modeling?

MC: I was living in a tiny town in Florida with my best friend who happens to be a photographer. We wanted to move to LA so he submitted my pictures to a small agency and we moved 2 weeks later. 


OTC: If you didn’t model, what would you be doing instead?

MC: Hmmm, probably trying to be a tattoo artist. I’ve always been into art, and when I first moved to Los Angeles I was dead set on learning how to tattoo. (I even bought a machine and everything). But my modeling took off so I just never got to pursue it. 


OTC: What would you change about your personality & look?

MC: Don't get me wrong, I’m all about self love, but if I had to change anything I would probably like to have a more edgy look. I’ve always wanted to die my hair a crazy color or seem like a badass. 


OTC: Where are you from originally?

MC: Originally I was born in Washington, and I grew up in the middle of nowhere Idaho. My parents moved my siblings and I to a little town in Florida when I was about 7. 


OTC: Do you travel a lot?

MC: I love LA so much that I rarely leave. I do visit home every so often but that’s about the extent of it. I don't even have a passport! I’ve technically left the country once when I went to the Bahamas on a cruise. I’ve been asked to travel for work so in the near future I might be traveling a lot more. 


OTC: Where, that you’ve visited, is your favorite country? 

MC: I mean The Bahamas was pretty nice haha!


OTC: Where would you love to visit, and what would you do there? 

MC: I have always wanted to backpack through Europe. I’ve been obsessed with going to Italy since I was little. Either that or a trip to Thailand. 


OTC: What is the one place in the world you wish you lived in?

MC: I wish I lived in France because they have such good healthcare and food!

OTC: Where is the one place in the world you feel safe? 

MC: On the beach. I grew up on an island off the coast of Florida, so if there’s sand and sun, I feel perfectly at peace. 


OTC: What is the one thing you want to experience before you die?

MC: I’ve always really wanted to go on Survivor!


OTC: Describe your dream vacation

MC: Giant beach house with all my friends, and just drinking and playing on the beach all day. 


OTC: Are you close with your family?

MC: Not as close as I’d like. I haven't really seen my dad for a couple years and the rest of my family lives in Florida. My brother actually lives like 5 min away from me but we don't get along. Funny story though because he's marrying one of my best friends from when I first moved to LA. 


OTC: What does “beauty” mean to you?

MC: To me, beauty means attraction. Not just being physically attracted to someone, but having that pull to be near someone because they exude happiness and positivity. I think that happy people are always beautiful. 


OTC: What makes you feel sexy? 

MC: Boy shorts and oversized t shirts


OTC: Do you read all of your Instagram comments? 

MC: I do, but I rarely respond if I don't personally know you.


OTC: Being called “beautiful” or “gorgeous” countless times in one day, does it still hurt reading one mean comment? 

MC: As much as I’d like to say that I have thick skin, I'm a big baby at heart. I don't think people always realize that everyone’s feelings can get hurt. 


OTC: What’s your opinion on Instagram forcing women to censor their nipples?

MC: I think it’s total bullshit, and I hate it. Nipples are nipples, if they're on a man or on a woman. If you want to make it illegal, at least make it equal. 


OTC: Which makeup product couldn’t you live without?

MC: Concealer, I’ve got dark circles for days.

OTC: If you were stuck on an island, which 5 items would you NEED to have with you? 

MC: My kindle, my cats, my mac book to watch Netflix, a hoodie, and a cellphone to call for help haha!


OTC: Who is your favorite model and why? 

MC: I love Alexis Ren because she always looks so freaking happy. 


OTC: Who is your favorite photographer and why? 

MC: I’ve always wanted to shoot with loopphoto aka. Preyen Moodeley. He just makes the women he shoots look so sexy. 


OTC: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done on a shoot? 

MC: One of the first shoots I've ever had, I was butt naked. In a room of about 20 people including hair and makeup and all that. I was mortified for about the first hour, but after a while, being naked makes you feel a little empowered.


OTC: What’s your favorite song at the moment?

MC: There’s this remake of Spice girls say you'll be there and I fucking love it. I listen to it in the shower pretty much every day.


OTC: What kind of music do you mostly listen to? 

MC: I listen to a lot of early 2000's pop punk, and a lot of hip hop. 


OTC: What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? 

MC: Snooze my alarm 50 times


OTC: What is something you have tried, but will never do again? 

MC: Long distance relationship, trust me, it never works out.


OTC: What quirky habit do you have? 

MC: I’m a little OCD so I’ll do dumb stuff like turn the volume to an even number, I also have no control over my facial expressions. Seriously I make the most outrageous faces and whatever I’m feeling is written all over my face. 


OTC: Who is your best friend? 

MC: My cats Fat Frank and Spooky (I can't choose one over the other), but for real definitely my boyfriend Chad. He's a really cool human being. 


OTC: What is the one thing you did in your past you wish you could undo? 

MC: I made the decision to transfer colleges to be with my bf at the time. Probably the worst decision I ever made, and I wish I could tell every girl that no boy is worth it.


OTC: What is your biggest fear? 

MC: I’ve always been scared of death. 


OTC: What is your most prized possession? 

MC: This little jade buddha charm that I got from my great grandma. Also a ring that my friend who passed away left at my house. I wear both of them on a necklace. 


OTC: Would you rather be loved or have a lot of money? 

MC: Show me the love.


OTC: What is the happiest memory from your childhood? MC: Decorating for Halloween with my mom and sister. It’s my favorite holiday and I always had so much fun hanging out with them.


OTC: What is the most embarrassing moment of your life?

MC: Pretty much every day I do a new humiliating thing. 


OTC: Who has influenced you the most in your life? 

MC: Definitely my mom, I go to her about everything. 


OTC: What is something you used to do as a child that you wish you could still do?

MC: I used to play on the trampoline after school like everyday. We would be out there all day, as soon as I get a yard I'm getting a trampoline haha!


OTC: What is the one movie that influenced your life the most? 

MC: While it might not be my favorite movie, I always watch it when I'm feeling down, so I’d have to say Legally Blonde. However, my favorite movie is Disturbia, just throwing that out there.


OTC: Describe your diet and workout routine

MC: I’m a pretty picky eater, and I make a lot of my own food. I don't eat any meat and I try to stay away from dairy. Exercise-wise, I’m pretty blessed to be naturally thin, but I am on my feet all day and I try to go on a jog a couple times a week.


OTC: Are you an early bird or a night owl? 

MC: Early bird, however I hate waking up! But I love the daytime.


OTC: Which question do you hate answering? 

MC: “What do you do for work?" I feel like it’s so pretentious to tell people I'm a model haha. 


OTC: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

MC: Living in a cute loft in arts district and working on my online retail store/modeling career


OTC: Professionally, what’s your goal? 

MC: Hopefully running a successful online retail store (which I'm in the process of opening) or being a famous painter living in seclusion.

MC: Go bar hopping with my boyfriend, watch Netflix, hangout with my cats, and wander around LA.


OTC: Would you rather model swimsuits or lingerie? 

MC: Swimsuits, because then you get to hang out on the beach while you shoot!

OTC: Do you have any tattoos? If so, tell me about them. 

MC: I have none! I want some but it’s hard when you model full time.
