Naomi Watanabe is the cover star of New York Magazine’s fashion section, “the Cut”! The comedian is currently living in New York “to soak up American culture and the creative energy of the city, and to learn a little more English.” The interview discusses her career in Japan and her desire to expand her career overseas. It also discusses her embracing of her plus-size body, especially in Japan, a country where women’s weight has been on the decline since the 80s.
In the accompanying photoshoot, Naomi wears the likes of Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Fashion Nova. Check out the shoot and its making below, and read Naomi’s interview here!
