Thursday, June 19, 2014 Role Model: Gals Of Summer: Gabby Datau
Gabby Datau isn’t easy to label. The Los Angeles native is a freelance graphic designer by trade, but she spends her free time making all sorts of cool stuff: including clothing, collages, and music (her father is a musician and Datau has been in bands, from “shoegaze garage to surf rock to sludge/stoner metal to hardcore punk” since high school).. The 23 year old studied music in high school and art at prestigious college Cal Arts, where she studied graphic design.” When I was in school, I was mostly interested in typography, gender constructs, and music experiments,” Gabby says when asked about her art style. She’s currently working on design work out of a studio downtown with her best friend, and also making noise and electronic music on her own. We asked the brainy beauty a few questions about her work and inspirations.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 Role Model: Jeneil Williams
It ain’t easy being a swimsuit model, but when Jeneil Williams stopped by our studio, we were super inspired by her badass confidence and you-can-do-anything attitude. The 22-year-old model relocated to NYC from Jamaica after being discovered at a pageant in 2007, and we were lucky enough to chat with her about the secrets to success—and how she got that killer bod.
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 Role Model: Maripol
Ah, where do we even begin with Maripol? The former Fiorucci art director/NYC scene queen shaped Madonna’s now-iconic “Like A Virgin” look and styled Debbie Harry for her Blondie debut. Basically, she hung out with all major visionaries during the ’80s and brought her Polaroid camera along to document it. This month, she collaborated with Joyrich on a spring/summer collection featuring her infamous pics, so we thought we’d share some of our favorite snaps with you below!
Thursday, October 3, 2013 Nails: WAHHHHHHH’s Sharmadean Reid
Sharmadean Reid knows a good thing when she sees one. The London-based stylist and businesswoman has a habit of spotting (and even starting) trends early, from Nike pool slides to tie-dye Proenza Schouler tees. Back in 2008 she was one of the first people to bring fashion-forward nail art to the mainstream in the form of her hip London salon WAH Nails, and she’s been spreading the WAH way of life ever since. In her new book The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls, Sharma lifts the lid on her unique brand of style and success with a little help from a worldwide crew of girls. Our contributor Phoebe Lovatt spoke to her to find out more.
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 Role Model: With Our Beauty Specialist, Stacey
We’re lucky, we just get to go down to the studio and ask makeup artist genius Stacey Nishimoto whenever we’ve got a burning beauty question that desperately needs an honest answer. She’s the one who showed us the two-toned lip trick and a look that goes all night without looking like it’s crossed over into the walk of shame, and we just can’t get enough of her bold theories and serious skills. Tomorrow she’ll be hosting a live chat, spilling all kinds of info on trends (hint: ask her about graphic eyeshadow blocking and illuminating face powders) and tips (how to make certain runway looks wearable), as well as her ideas about new hair textures and an elegant pale brow. Please join us here from 2 to 3 PM PST tomorrow!
