Downtime: Surfing in San Onofre or snowboarding at Mountain High.
Role Model: Summer Sanders.
Personal Style: "I do my own thing. I take tips from people here and there, but apply them in my own way. I try not to be too generic and wear what everyone else is wearing. I like to be comfortable, but I want the clothes I wear to express who I am."
Some Friendly Advice: "It’s hard for athletic companies to branch out to everydaywear. But what they miss is the whole other side to athletes. They’re not expanding to fashion. I know they could do it. The question is, ‘Would it be profitable?’"
Tatiana Golovin, 15
Vitals: French tennis player whose father played professional hockey in Russia.
Daily Dose of Exercise: Three hours hammering tennis balls.

Downtime: Horseback riding, dancing, shopping, reading and sleeping.

Personal Style: "I really like fashion and looking good. It’s kind of tiring, but I really like it. I love jeans, skirts and makeup. I really like low-waisted pants and skirts. I haven’t been shopping enough to know what brands I like."
Career Plans: Open an organization to protect animals and nature.
Some Friendly Advice: "Athletic companies are doing a pretty good job but they should make clothes more fashionable. Just because a person is a athlete doesn’t mean they have to wear long shorts or long-sleeve shirts. We always want to look good and sexy on the court."
Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, 13
Vitals: Ninety-five-pound skateboarder who takes tips from pro riders Bucky Lasik and Buster Halterman.
Daily Dose of Exercise: Two hours of riding at the Encinitas YMCA skate park.

Accessories: "I don’t think I could live without my down pillow."
Tunes: The Doors, No Doubt.
Career Plans: "I went to an All Girls Skate Jam three years ago. I was watching some other girls skating and I thought, ‘I could be that good.’ When I was 11, I always of dreamed of riding for Roxy and now I am. But if I ever stop skating, surfing and snowboarding, I’ll probably be a photographer for extreme sports."
Personal Style: "I just want to be comfortable and wear whatever my sponsors give me."
Some Friendly Advice: "They should ask normal, random kids on the street what they would like and should not assume kids would like something. Some companies assume kids would like their stuff."
Jenny Kirk, 18
Vitals: Former Boston Ballet member-turned-figure skater red-shirting; skipping college until next year.
Daily Dose of Exercise: Three hours on the ice.
Corporate Fans: To Be Determined.

Accessories: Steve Madden boots to boost her 5-foot 2-inch frame.
Tunes: Newfound Glory, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera.
Personal Style: "When I’m not skating, I like to dress up more than the normal person. I spend so much time in athletic clothes I try to look nice when I’m not skating. There’s not much to do in Michigan [where she trains] so my friends and I shop once or twice a week. When we go to competitions, everyone wants to have the latest clothes. It’s almost a competition off the ice. It must be a skating thing."Career Plans: "Something clicked recently. I must be getting older. Before I just wanted to skate. Now I know there are all these other things I can get into if I do well skating, like modeling."
Some Friendly Advice: "I buy a lot of stuff from Nike like stretch pants and athletic tops. But at competitions, we can’t wear basic tops. They should make different styles we can practice in. More shoe companies should look into making the boots we wear to skate in."

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye
