If you’ve cruised through West Hollywood lately, you’ve already laid eyes on the freshest face in fashion. But when Vivien James isn’t busy redefining “orange is the new black” with her pixie-perfect Marc Jacobs billboards, this street-cast muse is all about Coachella, gettin’ witchy with it, and kitties. A gal after our own hearts. Naturally, we were dying to get her in the NG studio for a romp in our latest looks and a one-on-one rap sesh for the full scoop on this neon-maned heartthrob.
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:
Q: If you had only one wish, what would it be? A: World peace, of course — so 23-year-old model Ollie Henderson is doing something about it. Her hand-painted political slogan t-shirts, gifted to her fashionable friends during this year’s Australian Fashion Week, have triggered a revolution with an impact far beyond the fashion world.
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.
