Are you mildly addicted to nail foil as of late? Well sista, you’re in luck, the fun doesn’t have to end at your hands thanks to our new super cool Lip Rock lip foil. Nasty Gal’s Makeup Artist In Chief, Stacey Nishimoto, shows us the ropes of the addictive lip accessory. Best of all, you can glam it up on the go. Stacey filled us in… “Just like instant noodles, you can look instantly hot. Now you can have true metallic lips in two minutes – SO MUCH FUN!”
Natalia is like a nerd trapped in a model. Though she comes to life in front of a camera, she still claims it’s outside of her comfort zone. She prefers zines and anime, and her house is full of comic books. Her paintings and drawings mix all of these with girlie colors (like the purple in her hair) and fashion and pop culture references to create something totally awesome.
Meet a girl called Steak. She’s pretty funny for a girl—which means she’s hilarious, because we all know girls are way funnier than guys, right? Rachael is an iguana mother, a cacti farmer, a rap music listener, a wine drinker and a Nasty Gal blog contributor. In short, she is everything awesome, and she also has good taste in cars.
Esther Kim‘s work bridges the gap between our two favorite things: fashion and art. Growing up between the US and Tokyo, her illustration aesthetic is a unique combination of feminine, stylish, and playful. Clearly, we’re hooked. We sat down with the literary loving artist in an attempt to pick her crazy-creative brain. Oh, and keep an eye out for an upcoming Lessons From The Pros featuring Esther’s work!
We love Italian native Marta Pozzan for her “che figata” (re: super cool) personal style that she shares with the masses on It’s Super Fashion. She mixes high and low to produce looks that are ultra fashion forward, yet incredibly affordable. Not one to shy away from colors nor prints, we’re happy to report her personality is just as fun and eclectic as her outfit choices! Read on as she dishes on everything from her adventures in acting and fashion editorial, to her lusts from Frodo to fro-yo.
To get amped for a weekend of nonstop dancing last weekend in L.A., we joined forces with Soho House for the official FYF pre-party at Mack Sennett Studios. Our favorite partygoers and head bangers boogied the night away to Holy Ghost!, Classixx and De Lux, taking breaks to snap Instas of the out-of-this-world art installations. Check out the madness that was FYF x Nasty Gal!
Last week, we ditched school (ok, so it was actually work) to hang with Cory Kennedy. It was a perfect L.A. afternoon—she took us on a tour of her old teenage stomping grounds, got real about eating breakfast for dinner, and may or may not have driven the wrong way on a one-way street.
André Saraiva— aka Monsieur A—is a French street artist best known these days for throwing the wildest parties at his nightclub Le Baron. When he’s not turning away supermodels, Saraiva wanders the world showing (and spray painting) his art. Currently on view at MOCA through October 7th, “André Saraiva: Dream Concerts” is a series of romantic, lyrical paintings and prints that use the language of concert posters to plant an impossible dream in the mind of the viewer. Saraiva’s *Dream Concerts* series is also on view at Gallery Steinsland Berliner in Stockholm, and later this year the show will travel to Maison Kitsuné in Tokyo. I spoke with André about the importance of imagination, urbanism and having fun.
Jenny Ong is the ultra adorable blogger behind Neon Blush. Her style is basically basics-gone-badass with quilted biker jackets, asymmetric minis and zipped boots being regulars in the rotation. When she’s not working or hanging out with her two pups, she’s tempting us with serious food porn on Instagram (girl has a thing for soft-boiled eggs).
