On Tour With Kanye West

Del_chicago3

It’s not often one of our Nasty Gal models ditches her L.A. digs to go on tour with Kanye West, but when Danielle Alcaraz joined the Yeezus tour as a visual artist, dancer and model in October of last year, we had to know more. “It was more of a theatrical performance rather than a typical hip-hop show. We were a live art installment.” Thirty shows later, Danielle is back in town with some serious stories to share. Check out some of her backstage snaps (and killer Nasty Gal ensembles!) below.

The Baby Bun

If you’ve ever tried to find a middle ground between a full bun and letting your hair fall naturally, look no further. We got Ashlee Rose to walk us through creating The Baby Bun. It’s a sort of sleek, sort of messy hairdo that’s still subtle, but done-up enough to show that hey, you did put some effort in today.

Meet Chloe!

Legs for days, beachin’ waves AND the most adorable freckles ever? Check! We could go on and on about Chloe Blanchard, our latest dream girl who also happens to share our love for french fries and all things Cher Horowitz. We got to hang out with her in the studio where she gave us the scoop on the craziest thing she’s ever tried and the band she’ll have on repeat forever.

Meet Angie!

Don’t mess with Angie Torres. The Dominican stunner may have exotic looks but she’s all-American (Texas-bred to be exact) and still proudly sports her cowboy boots when she’s not modeling barely there bikinis and body-cons. Somehow we were able to stop staring at her mile-long legs (ok, temporarily stop staring) and get some insight on her ultimate wishes and the pickup line she’ll actually go for.

Meet Mila!

It should take about .001 second to see why we couldn’t wait to have our favorite off-duty beauty, Mila De Wit, back in the studio. Not only is she a total blast to hang out with, she can transform from girl next door to smokin’ hot bombshell with a single bat of her lashes. We had a catch-up sesh with the Netherlands native and got the scoop on her Parisienne-inspired style and the one thing she would never wear.

Meet Ebonee!

We’re beyond lucky to get to hang out with some of the world’s coolest chicks in our studio, and this week was no different. Ebonee Davis showed up barefaced in a tank and ripped jeans, but was stoked to get a serious smear of coral lipstick and step into some mile-high platforms. See, she’s the kind of girl who’s just as down to glam it up as she is to hit the local dive, a.k.a. our new best friend. The super chill Seattle native (who’s already has ‘zines like Glamour South Africa under her belt) took a time out to chat with us about her childhood crush and how she keeps her bod in check.

Meet Karolina!

When we grow up, we want to be Karolina Wallace. Not only has the Poland-born, German-bred beauty graced the pages of Harpar’s Bazaar and Elle Italia (to name a few), she’s also an amazing photographer and musician. She and her equally gorgeous beau make up Radiant Reveries, the folk rock group the couple formed together last year. As you can imagine, we couldn’t wait to chat with the bohemian babe about her favorite bands, books, and the coolest place she’s ever been.

Kate’s Back!

Besides being one of our original muses (and one of the most beautiful girls we’ve ever seen up-close), Kate Harrison is cool as hell. We welcomed the NYC-based Nasty Gal back to the West Coast this week, where everyone in the studio was beyond stoked to work with one of their favorite humans and share crazy stories from the past year. We finally caught up with her to reminisce on favorite moments and talk festival hopping, beauty secrets and everything in between.

Meet Charlbi!

The insanely adorable Charlbi Dean Kriek stopped by the studio this week and instantly stole our hearts. Between dancing around in platforms, snacking on buttery popcorn and snapping Instagram pics with our styling team, the South African stunner proved she’s just one of gals. Here, she spills on her style icons, dream splurge and favorite ’90s flicks.

Meet Serafima!

Keep your eye on Serafima Kobzeva. The fresh-faced, Russian beauty is making serious waves in the fashion world and we have a feeling she’s just getting started. Not only is she our latest model muse, we’re also on a mission to make her our new best friend. We hung out in the studio where she gave us the scoop on everything from her spirit animal(s) to whose closet she’s currently crushing on.

Meet Tamiris!

Brazilian bombshell Tamiris Freitas isn’t just easy on the eyes (hello cheekbones!), she’s literally one of the sweetest girls ever. We chatted with her before she headed into hair and makeup, and even bare-faced she’s a total knockout. Here she dishes on her guiltiest of pleasures and where you can find her on Saturday nights.
