I'm back in LA and I've been acting very ignorant

Our #HCW this week is Simone Thompson, but you might know her by her IG handle, @slickwoods.  She describes herself as an “Astronaut/Backwood Slayer/Retired Trapper/Assassin/Hanger/Viking/Naïve Oldhead/Lion of LionsNY”.  As you can see, she’s not your typical high-fashion model.  Through her unique look and swag, she ultimately redefines what it is to be a working model in the industry.  Say goodbye to the days where you have to be a certain kind of pretty with long hair and perfect teeth to be a model.  Slick Woods embodies the vibe of loving yourself the way you are and embracing your flaws.  She’s the type who can walk down the runway at NYFW one day and just chill with her homies and roll up (with some backwoods, of course) the next.  Instead of trying to uphold a certain image to fit in, she stands out by just being her true self.  Doing so makes her a real G, in my book.  Her career has skyrocketed this year and she has worked with big names like Rihanna and Kanye West.  She usually goes for looks that intertwine high fashion with streetwear, and she slays nevertheless! She’s definitely a face you need to look out for!
