Ladies and gentlemen who like gentlemen, there is now a reason far better than saving on Manhattan rent to move to Bushwick, Brooklyn: a bunch of male models being artsy in a space visible from the street. By “a bunch,” we mean four and by “visible from the street,” we mean it’s not weird to set up camp outside the Bushwick storefront that man models Boyd Holbrook, Vincent Lacrocq, Jacques Naude, and Jamie Strachan have turned into a studio/gallery for their own work and shows by local artists. The [gorgeous] boys told Style.com that the space, called BAG (for Be A Giant), is a way for them to “loan our luck to other people” by providing a creative environment and display space for emerging artists. Eventually, they see it turning into a money-making artistic cooperative that capitalizes on the artists who have settled all over the neighborhood. If that means we can stop by their shows to check out the “art” and stuff, we’re rooting for their success. [Style.com] Keep reading »
The white linen curtain flaps as a warm spring breeze makes its way into the bedroom, caressing your face. You wake to hear the birds chirping and see the leaves on the trees blowing gently in the soft wind. The feeling of happiness engulfs you while laying there staring out at nature. You’re up to start the day but you wouldn’t mind lounging in your sleepwear. OK, this probably isn’t your reality, but at least you can pretend in this cotton eyelet-trim chemise. It has adjustable straps for a perfect fit and has a mid-thigh length to make you look and feel adorably girly.
This is what happens when a certain arrow-wielding matchmaker gives in to peer pressure and starts smoking whatever’s being passed around at Dionysus‘s parties. And no, we don’t know why he’s stroking that fur tail so intently. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Celebrity photographer Josh Kessler has snapped portraits of Mischa Barton, Mandy Moore, Susan Lucci, Betsey Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and the “Jersey Shore” cast, to name a few. He’s also had his fair share of beauty experience, creating lookbooks for Nexxus salon haircare, sponsor of Bravo’s hairstyling show, “Shear Genius.”
Kessler was kind enough to meet with a few editors on the heels of the “Shear Genius” headshot challenge episode, offering up his expertise in snapping flattering portraits. As someone who tends to be pretty critical of myself in photos, I jumped at the chance to score some pointers for those of us without a team of professionals to guide us. Read more … Keep reading »
As if Little J could really get away with dressing like a drugged-out downtown hooker at a posh prep school. It feels like with each season, “Gossip Girl” becomes increasingly unbelievable. We wish they’d just tone things down a little bit and take a page from the real world. Like, for example, finding out how real private school girls dress. WWD published this shoot of young ladies from Phillips, Milton, and Concord Academies, and we’re loving their school-friendly outfits that are very smartly styled with luxe items like Chanel purses and cute fillers from J. Crew or vintage stores. Kind of like how we dress! [Styleite.com] Keep reading »
