Bonnie Wears Golf Wang

Bonnie Wears Golf Wang

The LOVE Magazine

Bonnie Lalich is the all American, Cindy Crawford look a like, dream girl next door in Tyler the Creator’s talented gang of young creatives. The hip hop mogul has his own music festival, highly successful fashion label Golf Wang and even a TV channel, which Bonnie presents a crack up cooking show on. We dressed the laid back, girl you wanna be, girl your boyfriend wants to do, in Golf Wang and took some photos in sunny Silverlake, LA.

 Hi Bonnie, can we talk about LOVE as I know you just got engaged..... what does true love mean to you?

I think it means something different for everyone but to me true love means not leaving bed on a Sunday and ordering from Postmates 8 separate times and then eating all the food you ordered in bed together.  But seriously, true love is finding someone you can always be yourself around no matter what. 

How did you get involved with Golf Wang and end up presenting a cooking show on their tv channel?

I became friends with the guys through Brad (my Feyoncé)  like 5 years ago. We are all the same age so we have a lot in common when it comes to music, movies, and sense of humor. To be honest the cooking show came about when Tyler, Matt, and Lionel were brainstorming content for the app. They thought of the cooking show and asked me to host it. I was so nervous that I would fail and pee my pants on camera but it turned out to be the most fun and actually pushed me to start acting which is something I have always wanted to do but was too embarrassed to actually admit. So if I ever win an Oscar I will thank Brad, Tyler, Matt, and Lionel..and my mom and dad and my puppy.  

All these photos of you were shot in Silverlake - do you have a secret, but loved spot in the neighbourhood?

That was actually my very first time in Silverlake for an extended period of time. I live in Santa Monica and never leave. lol. But that place where we got the pretzel was amazing. I just looked it up its called Red Lion Tavern. I think about that pretzel on a weekly basis. 

Which piece of Golf Wang is your standard go to wardrobe essential? 

I love all the pants. The flame pants, the polka dot pants, and the coke pants look so good on. I told Tyler that I think they were cut for women. 

What are your plans for the future? 

I'm not much of a planner buuuttt I plan to be in a movie by the end of the year. Even if I just have one line. I will be in one. I'm planning a wedding..sort of.... I looked at a wedding planning site the other day and got stressed out and then just looked at dresses for 4 hours. I also plan on having 3 kids and being a cool mom. I want to learn how to DJ and only play 90's panty dropper music. I also want to adopt a child from India later on in life. 

And what do you wish you could have told your 13-year-old self?

I would have told my 13-year-old self to not worry so much about what people think in Springfield, Va because in 5 years you will move to LA and you will stay in touch with about 5 people from there. Focus on school. Don't date boys. Be nice to your parents.OH! Stop being so hard on yourself it's okay to fail so DON'T GIVE UP.
