It’s increasingly common for people today to juggle more than one career, and Rebecca Dayan is a multihyphenate of the highest order. Having first caught our eye acting in films like Limitless and Celeste and Jesse Forever, we weren’t surprised to learn that she’s also dipped her toes in the fashion world, modelling in campaigns for the likes of Missoni and Banana Republic. In fact, it was legendary photographer Peter Lindberg who first scouted the French native.
In recent years, however, Dayan has turned her attention towards the art world, where she’s made serious waves with her watercolor series “ASSUMPTION,” which works to recast the term “virginity” under a feminist lens. Using photographs of her sisters and model pals like Tali Lennox as inspiration, the paintings have an ethereal quality that we can’t get enough of.
Naturally, her style is on point, too, as evidenced by her Instagram account filled with snaps of Dayan in witty T-shirts, vintage dresses, and high-rise denim. Scroll down to check out our favorite ’grams, as well as some lovely shots of the model by Garance Doré…
