Nikki interview excerpts courtesy of Self magazine:
On living all over the world, and her fashion influences from all over the world:
NR: Do I have fashion influences? Not really. I have a very sort of eclectic style, so I guess I’ve picked up things from all over the world, but the last place that I lived was Greece so I became very into, like, the evil eye and stuff like that. At some point I’d like to have a jewelry line that incorporates… that’s probably my only fashion influence.
On the possibility of doing her own jewelry line someday?
NR: I mean, at some point I would like to. My brother’s a really good artist, so it’s a little intimidating being his sister trying to sketch things up, but at some point I’d like to. It’d be cool to get an evil eye tattoo right there (outer wrist). I’m influenced by Greek culture for sure.
On her favorite dress of the day?
NR: “The black dress. Because it’s baggy, and it’s relaxed and I can sit Indian style in it which means it’s my favorite. Any dress I can sit Indian style in.”
On the outfits for the wedding scene in the new film, are they pretty?
NR: Um, yes. First of all they’re being very secretive about it, but they were very glamorous and there’s a lot of thought put into them and we were shooting under crazy conditions. It was like ice, rainy, cold, freezing, we were shooting in the night it would get muddy, and I just remember we developed this technique where we’d take a hair clip and clip the bottom of the huge train I had to my sash in the middle, so that was my look the whole night—a huge plastic sparkly hair clip with this elegant dress..
On if she liked the dress?
NR: Yeah, I did! It’s interesting because Rosalie and I have such different color palettes that work with us. So, the blonde hair, fair skin works really well with lavenders and blues and pastel-y colors, whereas I tend to not where those colors. I’m not a stylist or an expert in those fields by any means, but I usually don’t wear those as much as I wear harder colors, but when you put Rosalie in like black, it just sort of makes—it's too severe. It’s interesting to see the difference, depending on what skin color and what hair color—what works for people.
On how she would describe Rosalie’s current, like, 2011 style?
NR: The Cullen family—they try and steer towards being a little more modern, just because they don’t want to stand out as much as they already do with their crazy eyes and pale skin, so I think that was also like a common theme when shooting, like “How can we make them blend in the most” so we wore like the hippest, most modern clothes. We were always pulling—Ashley, me and Elizabeth—we were always pulling to try and grab some pieces from the 20s and 30s and although in theory that was right, it did make us stick out too much, so we had to stick with wearing Nike.
On her healthiest habit
NR: I hike almost every day with my dog. I quit smoking 2 years ago July 5th, so it’s like my biggest accomplishment so far, not that that even needs to be in there but whatever, that’s what I’m most proud of. And I started exercising. It was the first time I’d ever seen a treadmill and it was two years ago it was actually the first day that I quit smoking and I got on a treadmill, so like the worst day of my life (laughs).
But you know when you do that, like your whole lifestyle changes, like the places you want to go to eat or the places you want to vacation to or the people you surround yourself with, you know it changes your whole life. So I even like have a much better time with my animal, with my dog, because now we hike every day. It’s been incredible.
