Name: Eli Allen
Relationship status: Single
Occupation: Creative director
What were you doing when scouted? I just dropped of some documents, stopped by the comic (book) store and was on the way to my car.
Describe your style: I kind of hopped on the Americana bandwagon recently. I just like straightforward, simple stuff like jeans, nice boots and whatever else.
Fashion trends you love: I’m really into stuff like Rick Owens, goth ninja, drop-crotch sweats and big ol' parkas. I can never pull it off but I think they’re pretty sweet.
Fashion trends you hate: I could probably do without people trying to ironically do the normcore thing that was briefly popular.
Fashion influences: I look at a lot of style blogs and one of my friends is a fashion illustrator. I pretty much just eat up everything that he does and try to copy it.
What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? I like pretty much everything that I see around in Lawrence. I think Lawrence is one of the better-dressed towns out there. Less of? When the weather was warmer, I would see too many dudes rocking egregious shorts like Daisy Dukes.
Tattoos or piercings: Yes, I have a facial piercing and tattoos on my chest.
Whom do people say you look like? Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger. I don’t agree with either of those but that’s what people tell me.
What type of music do you like? A lot of hip-hop, indie and drum and bass.
Tell us a secret: I can’t do carrots. I hate them.
