Monday, June 9, 2014 Role Model: Gals Of Summer: Hayley Magnus

HAYLEY-MAGNUS

By all conventional wisdom, actress Hayley Magnus should not have turned out normal. Despite having caught the acting bug at a very young age (“I think I came out of the womb mid-pose!”) the twenty five year old Australian beauty grew up telling the other kids she wanted to be a volcanologist, just to set herself apart (partly due to a few too many Dante’s Peak viewings). Her first real performance was as a pre-teen, as part of something they have down under called Tournament of the Minds, which is some weird hybrid of drama club and debate team they have in school (IDEK). She played a hillbilly who could only speak in rhyming couplets, and had to answer social science questions about the universal time code (no, for real). “It was the nerdiest of nerd things ever!” She insists she had friends and everything, (“do imaginary ones count?”) and after high school landed her first real gig, on popular Australian soap opera Home and Away. From there the quirky, brainy beauty landed a recurring role on a show called Slide, followed by several movie roles, eventually moving to Los Angeles last year. If you think moving to Hollywood has changed her, don’t: her favorite part about living here? “The opossums! They’re hilarious!”

Since Hayley did us the kindness of appearing in our Summer Garden Party editorial, I asked her to plan her perfect garden party. And guess what? It’s weird and charming, just like her:

Monday, June 9, 2014 Right Now: Ball So Hard

Shot_07_009

The World Cup kicks off on June 12th in Brazil! That exclamation point (much like many of my exclamation points, to be honest) is feigned, because in regards to soccer, I know about as much as British people know about nachos (in case you were wondering what that means, last time I ate nachos in London, they came topped with BBQ sauce). But I digress: soccer (or football, as the rest of the free world calls it) is cool for many reasons: during World Cup, you have an excuse to go to a bar at 10am, David Beckham, and of course, soccer-related fashion. We rounded up some of our favorite examples of the latter, drawing from the Nasty Gal vintage archives, a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Carine Roitfeld’s Instagram, and more:

Monday, June 9, 2014 Guest Edit: Guest Edit: #FreeTheNipple

Model

unnamed

As social-media-ites rally to free their nipples (or one nipple as the hashtag #FreeTheNipple suggests), I’m over here in Japan nipple free. Well, I’m Nippless (TM), to be precisea Japanese brand of nipple covers that we use to hide the color and shape of the female nipple. I’m still decked out in these circular bandages from a fashion shoot earlier today, a souvenir that gives me the torso look of a plastic dolly.  See, in the business of Tokyo fashion, nipples are not “free.” On the streets of Tokyo, nipples are definitely not “free”. It would seem to the outside world that Japan is not exactly at the forefront of nipple freedom…

PANDY POLA

I’m Pandora and I live in London in a house in Shoreditch plastered with Mexican crafts, 70s porn and Elvis paraphernalia. I’m a fashion editor, a brand consultant and, more recently, the co-owner of Anti-Agency; the home for super hot, super smart boys and girls who are too cool to be real models.

This is how it all happened:
