In the latest issue of Lula, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are running the show. As guest editors, they created a Proust-like questionnaire that was answered by a mix of people that included Cindy Sherman and Jason Schwartzman. From “J.D. Salinger or Jack Kerouac?” to “If I gave you a medal right now, what would it be for?”, their lengthy list of questions may seem random, but the answers tell you more about a person than you’d think. Besides, who doesn’t like a good old personality quiz? Although you have to actually buy the issue to see the questionnaire, the rad Fashionista crew has jotted down the list, which you can see after the jump. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to annoying everyone I know with these questions at the next holiday party.
