Tuesday, August 12, 2014 Role Model: FKA twigs
We don’t know what we love more about FKA twigs: her hypnotic dance moves (think: subdued belly dancer), her unique brand of style (gelled chola curls, strong brows, ornate septum ring, and a red lip? Yes, please), her unmatchable music videos (anime-esque “Water Me” is as absurd as it is simple) or her siren-like voice (just try listening to “Papi Pacify” and not falling into a lovely trance). What we do know is that we’re beyond excited to finally be witnessing all of that live at her El Rey Theatre show in Los Angeles tonight.
Monday, August 11, 2014 Right Now: Nemesis Babe Shoots Copenhagen Fashion Week
With their penchant for staying chic in sneakers and biking rather than Benzing to fashion week, there’s a lot to love about the style stars of Copenhagen. This weekend marked the end of their fashion week, but luckily we had Marie Jensen on the street to shoot all the best looks. If you’re interested in going #normcore, look no further: Copenhagen Fashion Week welcomes more chunky knits, heels with socks, and furry flip flops than you’ve ever seen.
Wednesday, August 6, 2014 Right Now: Happy Birthday, Andy!
Pop art aficionados take some time out of your day to remember the greatest in the game. It’s Andy Warhol’s big 8-6 today and we think everyone needs to recognize it. Best known for reappropriating celebrity, culture and advertisement as art, Warhol is an icon to art lovers the world over. He was the founder of Interview and undoubtedly the reason we have the pop art effect on Photobooth. If you’re in LA, make your way over to MOCA in September to check out Andy Warhol: Shadows, an exhibition that presents one Warhol painting in 102 parts!
Thursday, July 31, 2014 Right Now: Five Music Videos We Are Obsessed With This Week
Even though MTV has been hijacked by teen moms and teen wolves, the art of the music video is not dead. Our favorite artists are still making them left and right; they’re just getting more creative with their execution (like Lana Del Rey, pictured above, whose strikingly simple “bride without a groom” video gives us the chills). From Slutever‘s summer fun to Mac DeMarco‘s sexy Homer Simpson situation, here are five music videos we are currently obsessing over.
Monday, July 28, 2014 Trends: Trench Toast
Have you noticed how editors talk about personal style as though getting ready was a mathematical equation? We throw terms around like “cost per wear”, and “fashematics” i.e. an A-line skirt + knee-high boots = the Mod look. There’s also the faithful “top five” wardrobe essentials, a list to live and die by. Everyone has a top five, and often everyone ends up having the same top five: a classic white shirt, a well cut pair of jeans, an LBD, brogues, and of course, a trench coat. A trench coat always makes the cut.
