WMAG: Mona Tougaard keeps herself busy. This year alone, the 21-year-old model walked 39 runways, starred in eight major campaigns, and appeared on four magazine covers. At the time of this interview, the haute couture shows—where Tougaard opened for Schiaparelli and closed for Jacquemus—have just wrapped, and she’s taking some well-deserved time off. She speaks on the phone rather than over Zoom from her home, in Copenhagen—Tougaard doesn’t own a laptop, and hasn’t since she was 16. “I don’t feel like I need a computer. I have my phone. That’s pretty much it,” she says matter-of-factly. In a world filled with hyper-online Gen Zers, it’s a refreshing—even shocking—reveal. It’s also just one of the many things that set Tougaard apart from her peers.
