Swide asked model and D&G campaign star Tyson Ballou (the sultry bateleur) a few season-appropriate questions for a little Xmas cheer. Our best present ever? Interviewing Tyson...
The worst gift you've ever received?
I got this Asian tea set once, and I don't really ever drink tea. It's pretty, but the cups are the size of shot glasses, and I don't think you can put the kettle on a flame for fear of ruining it. Just for serving I guess. I still have it though because it's the thought, right?
We're searching for a gift for Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce - what would be your suggestions?
Something that is a collectable. Not sure if they collect anything, but something unique. A vintage watch or vintage anything that they might not get themselves because they probablyhave everything. I'm sure you guys have some idea of their taste.
Are you dreaming of a white Christmas or a Caribbean Christmas?
I'd love some snow. Not sure if I'll get that in Texas, but you never know. Might have to wait till I get back to NYC.
Are you planning to cook Christmas lunch and if so, what?
I like to cook a bit. Looking forward to a turkey dinner, mashed potatoes, stuffing & gravy, and christmas desserts. Pies, my Mom's Christmas are famous with my family and friends. And turkey sandwiches for days after.
Lady Gaga released a song last year called "My Christmas Tree isdelicious" - top tips for the perfect Christmas tree?
You'd have to ask my Mom about that one!
All we want for Christmas...
With special thanks to Tyson Ballou.
