The Talks at Google: #GREYGIRL Martha Hunt

Jason and #GREYGirl Martha Hunt share a very special bond. Not only are they close friends, Martha made one of her first runway appearances at the Jason Wu Fall 2013 runway show and their careers have evolved side by side ever since. A Victoria’s Secret model who has also appeared in countless runway shows and advertising campaigns, plus a Taylor Swift music video, Martha has built an extremely successful career and massive global following. Jason and Martha were honored to be invited to participate in The Talks at Google. The pair discussed how they have navigated some of the challenges and changes in the fashion industry, the launch of GREY Jason Wu and their shared Google Cafeteria envy. Watch the Google Talk now and read below as we turned the tables on Martha and asked her a few questions of our own.

WHAT DOES "GREY LA VIE" MEAN TO YOU?

To me, the New York or Paris woman is GREY because she is sophisticated and open-minded. She is effortless and modern, just like GREY Jason Wu. She has the confidence to stand out, but not too much. 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST WHEN ENTERTAINING FRIENDS? 

My favorite way to entertain friends is a low-key BBQ outside. The key to keeping an environment intimate is the guest list. Know your audience, and invite friends who will engage with the people around them. No one wants to sit down next to someone who is tied to their phone or not open to engaging with new people. Also, soft music and candles always help set an intimate mood. 

WHAT ARE SOME KEY INGREDIENTS FOR LAST-MINUTE ENTERTAINING? 

Whatever is seasonal and fresh at the market. I love how chef Laila (Gohar) talked about having fun designing with food that was in-season. 

WHICH RECIPES DO YOU MOST SHARE WITH FRIENDS? 

Anything from the "Barefoot Contessa" blog by Ina Garten. A few recipes I have shared recently are kale salad with secret bacon and a delicious vegan Moroccan curry; opposite ends of the spectrum! 

WHAT QUALITIES MAKE FOR A GREAT HOST OR HOSTESS? 

Have hors d'oeuvres and cocktails ready to be served and a good playlist on! 

WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE/FAVORITE RECIPE? 

I love a good quinoa with toasted pine nuts, and also Ina Garten's engagement chicken. That roast chicken is to die for!
