Pantheon Media Group is proud to present the first-ever cover feature of Grazia Gazette: The Hamptons, a limited-edition iteration of GRAZIA USA targeted to and created for the most influential in America’s summer playground, featuring Outer Banks star Madelyn Cline in Salvatore Ferragamo.
In her first high-fashion cover feature, Cline, 23, wore a series of looks exclusively from Ferragamo’s 2021 pre-fall collection. In the cover interview by contributor Aaron Rasmussen, Cline speaks for the very first time about the experience of becoming famous – and finding love on set – in the middle of a pandemic.
Cline describes the tight-knit nature of the Netflix series’ set, and how the cast members continue to keep each other grounded in the whirlwind of Hollywood.
“The first season of the show felt like going and shooting an indie,” Cline says. “It was very tight-knit, so the filming of the first season felt very intimate in the best way possible. We really vibe with our crew and our cast, obviously. We immediately had chemistry, and we immediately started hanging out, which is amazing.”
“We all kind of started in the same place when we got the show,” she explains, “and we just stuck together. We’re all going through the same thing and it just helps to have people around you who understand and who are there for you. We keep each other grounded and we hype each other up. We’re all each other’s best hype man.”
Although she worked as a child model for years, Cline says that the experience of fame in the 21st century – and the social media component that comes along with it – has been challenging.
“I’m still learning,” Cline admits. When it comes to engaging with fans in a healthy way. “It’s new territory for me.”
“The expectation to share everything is intimidating,” she continues. It’s a constant pressure that takes real thoughtfulness to navigate.”
Still, Cline is focused on being a star with staying power, in the model of ingenues-turned-A-listers like her role model, Scarlett Johansson. For her, staying grounded as a millennial mega-star requires a regimen of meditation, journaling, workouts, and other means of self-care.
“I’ve met a lot of women in my time here in LA – really independent, powerful women – and I admire that. Bottom line, just being able to be around that kind of energy and women who are such bosses is incredible,” she says.
