Fresh Face: Chloe Worthington

Hello-Tomorrow-GifChloe3

Melbourne born and bred model Chloe Worthington is one to watch. The 19-year-old ex-ballerina has legs for days and has shot with Vice, SRC783, and Oyster Magazine. We caught up with the tiny dancer to talk about waffles, Instagram stalking, and her daily hang out spots.

Working It: An Interview with Gloria Noto

g0x-TUTE5kph0JYHR_ScTKH9-H2wKgcKNyNNtej0N70

We recently had Gloria Noto teach us how to do the dew. Today, we’re asking about her other projects, namely The Work Magazine. Since its conception six years ago, The Work has grown into a combination fashion, photography and art publication. When it comes down to it, the mag is all about “real soul, real concept and not just another hot girl looking bored.” Of course, most of that soul comes from Gloria, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. We caught up with her to talk crystals, something called “active rest,” and the reason why one job is never enough.

Summer Suitcase Essentials With MAKE Creative Director, Ariana Mouyiaris

Ariana_3

Well hello there, new favorite make up line. MAKE might be one of the newest brands on the beauty block, but they’ve already nailed that elusive combination of high-quality products, on-trend colors, and super-cool packaging (v. essential). Also: It’s all paraben free, cruelty free, and never tested on animals. Oh, and did we mention that 10% of every sale goes towards the company’s We See Beauty foundation, especially set up to benefit women-led cooperative businesses? Yeah. Kinda awesome.

In honor of its Nasty Gal launch, we asked MAKE’s jetsetting Creative Director Ariana Mouyiaris to share the five suitcase essentials she can’t live without.

Just Dew It

intro

Whether it’s after a morning run or a day at the beach, there’s something undeniably sexy about a little bit of sweat. And now that summer is officially here, it’s kind of hard to avoid. Of course, it’s a lot sexier to create the just-jogged-in look with moisturizer, foundation, and a little bit of lipstick. We had Work Mag EIC (and palm tattoo aficionado), Gloria Noto, teach us how to achieve the ideal level of dewy perfection, no perspiration added. 

#GIRLBOSS: ROSSON CROW

Artist Rosson Crow paints big, and thinks even bigger. Her large-scale artworks are drenched in color, bursting with energy, and vibrant with character and life…kinda like the artist herself.

In today’s Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS, Rosson talks about growing up in Texas, making art in New York, and why she listens to a lot of rap music while she works. She also discusses some of the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated industry, and tells us why she’s all for making bad paintings. After all, says Rosson, “mistakes can be good” so long as you learn something from them. Spoken like a true #GIRLBOSS.

Did you see the last three #GIRLBOSS portraits? Go watch ’em all now!

Here some of Rosson’s art in case you are not familiar with her incredible work.

Gals Of Summer: Chanel Castaneda

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 at 1.41.36 PM

Chanel Castaneda is a girl who knows how to have fun. Not just in the party sense of the word (although she certainly has that bit down), but in seemingly every aspect of her life. The petite Los Angeles native spends her time pal-ing around with some of our favorite It-girls, including Brooke Candy, Venus X, and stylist Alexis Knox. She is an actress, a model, and a muse, and is best known for her unique and borderline cartoonish take on style: think giant platforms, bleached Barbie hair (currently dyed  a dusty pink), and bold, sexy fashion. Check out some of our favorite party snaps of Miss Chanel below.

The Triumphant Return Of The Scrunchie

Alice-Dellal-Scrunchie

Few accessories have such a polarizing effect as the scrunchie. You remember scrunchies, right? They’re like normal hairbands, but swathed in fun fabric. According to the U.S Court of Appeals, a woman named Rommy Revson invented and patented the “scunci” in 1986; since then Rommy (could there be a better name for the originator of the scrunchie?) has seen her work ripped off every which way to Sunday, especially during the late 80s and the first half of the 90s, where scrunchies enjoyed a long run of high popularity. They popped up on everyone from Clarissa (of Explains It All fame) to Rayanne Graff to the cast of Mi Vida Loca, plus celebs like Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, and TLC were rocking the puffy hair holder. Our beloved scrunchie experienced a period of disgrace in the 2000s (who can forget the infamous “no Manhattan woman would wear a scrunchie” Sex and the City episode in 2003) but it seems like despite the obstacles of the past, they are returning with a vengeance.  The accessory is popping up on the heads of it-girls, on runways, and even on world leaders like Hilary Clinton. Rommy Revson, your legacy lives on…

Ode To Lana

lana-del-rey

“Are you sick, or just a lesbian?” pried the USC sorority girl washing her hands next to me, upon first glance at my newly shaved head. This was a whole bunch of years ago, but when I’m back in the vicinity of my alma mater for the sold out Lana Del Rey show at The Shrine Auditorium, it all comes back to me. Perfect tens and misfits are still the theme of the night.
