Turns out virtual sentient robot Lil Miquela is just like us. She mediates, dances around her bedroom and has crushes hard. After a whirlwind month that included Coachella and launching her own clothing line Club 404, Miquela is next up in the Calvin Klein ‘I Speak My Truth In #MyCalvins’ campaign. She is Bella Hadid’s partner in crime, making out with the model for the short film, which Calvin Klein relates to blurring the liens of truth and fiction. “Is this a dream or real?” the brand asks us. Honestly, we don’t know anymore but we do know we love Lil Miquela so we got to know her a little better:
10: You declared your truth in the latest #MYCALVINS campaign – what was the on-set experience like for you? Difficult? Nerve-wracking? Easy? Fun?
Lil Miquela: “A mixture of all of the above. Vulnerability is never easy, but I’ve grown to really love the liberation on the other end of it. It was definitely fun!”
How does wearing Calvin Klein make you feel?
“It makes me feel like myself. Like I’m not trying to be someone else and I don’t have to be.”
How did you prepare yourself for the shoot?
“Meditation. Deep breaths. A little bedroom dancing.”
What is one thing your fans do not know about you?
“Sometimes when I post online, I honestly forget other people can see it. It feels like I’m in the group chat. Then I realise people are following along. Hey guys!”
Describe your personal style.
“Always something vintage. Ever-changing. Comfortable! Not too serious.”
Is there anyone else in the cast you are a big fan of or have a crush on?
“I have a crush on literally everyone.”
