Wednesday, June 4, 2014 Role Model: Gals Of Summer: Diandra Forrest
In a world where conventionality often tends to rule traditional standards of good looks, model Diandra Forrest is the very definition of uniquely beautiful. The gorgeous 24-year old African-American model was born and bred in the Bronx, and as a child with albinism, Diandra was often teased, until one day she was discovered by a model scout who could plainly see that Diandra was not only pretty, but downright gorgeous. Since then she has walked for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood, been featured in countless magazine editorials, and even popped up in music videos for Kanye West (“Power”) and Beyonce (“Pretty Hurts”). Check out some stunning snaps of one our favorite (role) models:
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Role Model: Ariel Beesley
We know what you’re thinking. There’s nothing more annoying than a very beautiful girl who also happens to be totally talented and creative (all in addition to having perfect bone structure). We tend to agree, except in the case of Ariel Beesley, the twenty year old model and musician who not only looks like a dream but happens to creates perfectly dreamy music as well. We can’t help but be charmed by the bleach blonde beauty’s poise, intelligence, and penchant for the darker side of life. The former musical theater nerd recently released Wisp, her third (THIRD) record of sweetly simple yet slightly haunting folk tunes, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on the music video for “Boys Like You” (directed by Aris Jerome) for an exclusive Nasty Gal premiere, as well as pick Ariel’s brain about her inspirations.

Not to brag, but we’re totally Chloe Norgaard experts around here. Almost exactly a year ago, we had a balls-out hang sesh with this rainbow-haired babe in her NYC apartment, and today (and nearly two photo shoots later!) she’s back to talk all-things music. One look at her dream festival lineup, and you’ll fall in love.

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 Role Model: Frida Aasen
Just when you thought it was impossible to look cool at prom, model Frida Aasen showed us that some choppy bangs, bondage and a badass ‘tude can totally transform an entire outfit. But, we wanted to know even more about this blonde-haired beauty, so we asked her about dream date, go-to song, and her modeling career (duh). Check it out below!
