What were you doing when scouted? Heading to Urban Outfitters.
Describe your styles:
Tyler: I like to dress up with a suit and tie. Most of the time, I skate.
Janelle: He’s a skateboarder! He’s not quite as fancy all the time! My style is comfortable and whatever I like. I’m also inspired by ’50s and ’20s era (fashion styles).
Fashion trends you love:
Janelle: Tyler likes bright colors and colorful things. I tend to like laid-back country or lacey, flowy stuff. Although I like the ’20s and ’50s era, I’m also a country girl: I like my boots, my overalls and stuff!
Fashion trends you hate:
Janelle: Provocative stuff and stuff that’s not necessary. But even if it’s kind of crazy and unique, I think it’s cool as long as it’s modest.
Tyler: I’m definitely sick of seeing those Adidas running shorts that a lot of girls wear.
Janelle: We shop around at different stores and piece together certain outfits. It doesn’t have to be a specific brand.
Tyler: I see some of it on TV. Like Janelle said, I’m a skateboarder so I see certain styles that I’m attracted to. I love skate shoes and I have a lot of them.
What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence?
Janelle: I would like to see women dress up more and take care of themselves. You see way too many people with this sloppy, thrown-together pajama pants look. Not that it matters, but I think it is important women and men to dress up at least every once in awhile.
Tyler: Brand new roads would be awesome! I drive a low-rider so it gets rough around town sometimes.
Janelle: Yeah, we hit a leaf and the car skids.
Whom do people say you look like?
Janelle: My mom constantly calls me Lucy from “I Love Lucy”
Tyler: I’m not sure. Who do I look like?
Janelle: I always call him my Paul Walker cause he likes to drive endlessly.
What types of music do you both like?
Janelle: We pretty much like anything!
Tyler: Yes. I personally like screamo and lots of dubstep.
Tell us a secret:
Tyler: I’ve never been on a plane.
Janelle: I’m an open book. I don’t have secrets!
