Zen Moment: Taylor Hill

The model and global ambassador for Ralph Lauren’s Romance campaign shares her favorite app for meditation

Words by KELLY ATTERTON

 

The global ambassador for Ralph Lauren’s Romance campaign has found her bliss. Originally introduced to meditation by her boyfriend, Michael Stephen Shank (also featured in the campaign), Westlake Village-based model Taylor Hill is now a fan of Calm, a guided meditation app.

Hill’s practice begins after breakfast and a shower. “I wash my face with Very Clear Acne Cleanser by Derma E, and use Advanced Génifique Sensitive Serum by Lancôme for a fresh start.” Then she dons her favorite cashmere sweatpants by James Perse and a vintage tee. “If it’s a warm day, I meditate outside in a hanging chair; it feels like I’m floating.

“I really respond to the ‘happiness’ meditations,” she explains. “They help shift my perspective. Afterward I feel lighter and more focused. Meditation helps achieve fitness goals, too, giving you an ‘I can do this’ mentality. … Meditation has given me tools to calm myself, focus on goals, find my center and use my voice.”
