Visibility in Fashion Isn't Just Pressing—To These Indigenous Models, It’s Vital

Let's get one thing clear: the fashion industry's relationship to marginalized communities has always been fraught. It doesn't take an expert eye to see the long of history sidelining and often straight-up excluding many identities that don't fit into a stringent box of thin, cis-gendered, heterosexual, and white. The charge for more representation—be it for radical size inclusivity or commitments to racial diversity—has largely left out Native Americans despite the (often misappropriated) influence on fashion and beauty their rituals and traditions have contributed to.So while representation may seem like a surface-level answer to some, to these three Native American models, it's not just important—it's their everything. "I have people message me constantly," shared Valentine Alvarez, "I ...

I'm Irrationally Excited About Fall Beauty—3 Trends Taking Up My Mental Space

Everyone who knows me knows how important makeup is to my soul, my brain, my personality. So when a new season rolls around and the makeup is a full-on mood, it's hard for me to think of anything else. Vinyl lips? Blue eye shadow? Glazed-donut skin? Fall beauty is giving big energy, and all I can say is buckle up. Now's the time to step outside your comfort zone and use makeup as a way to express yourself. To help get you as excited as I am for the season ahead, I called in three beauty aficionados with excellent taste to curate the fall beauty trends—and products from Macy's—worth your attention."What gets me the most excited about fall beauty is incorporating all the beautiful and vibrant colors of the season, like deep reds, burnt oranges, and different shades of green. The fall trend I...

Jenna Ortega May Be Gen Z's Scream Queen, But Fear Isn't Standing in Her Way

When I log on to Zoom to interview Jenna Ortega, I can’t help but have a few stereotypical expectations of the teenage girl I’m about to meet, yet in 45 minutes, the actress defies them all. The second she popped up in the chat, one word came to mind—poised. She smiles at me, her eyes showing the repercussions of a relentless work schedule. Since her starring role in the second season of You, it seems the 20-year-old has been jumping from one noteworthy project to the next, solidifying her status as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand young talents. Even finding time for this conversation proved arduous with her unpredictable pre-production schedule.On the set of our cover shoot, Ortega was outfitted in glamorous, Technicolor looks designed by the likes of Miu Miu, Versace, and Valentino set...

15 Designers On What Goes Into Creating a Fashion Week Show

Anyone who's ever been lucky enough to attend a fashion show (whether it's in Oslo, New York, Paris, or one nearby home) knows that there's a moment that always manages to surprise you. Suddenly, a model wafts down the runway in an incredible frock, and you can feel goosebumps on your body. Even if you've never watched a runway show first-hand, it's an equivalent feeling to finding the perfect fall staple or scrolling through the runway online and gasping mid-scroll—it's a split-second filled with a sliver of magic. But I'd be lying if I didn't say that as an editor, I know that moment can be fleeting at times; trends change quickly, and most runway shows only last 15 minutes. But stil...

From NYC to Paris—4 Brands You Need to Know Ahead of Fashion Month

Contrary to popular belief, fashion month is more than just a mecca for established brands with storied histories. Yes, the industry’s giants oftentimes exhibit their latest collections on elaborate runways, a star-studded guest list seated casually in the front row. And yes, those esteemed labels often receive much of the media’s attention post-show. But by no means does that tell the whole story. In addition to runway shows housed at the Louvre in Paris (Louis Vuitton), the Armory in New York City (Marc Jacobs), and the Tate Modern in London (Stella McCartney), fashion month offers hundreds of presentations that exist on a much smaller scale. Often attended by close friends and local press, these events manifest as quaint dinners, video releases, and gallery exhibitions, the likes of whi...

Shannon Dang on Style, Stereotypes, and Securing Her Breakout Role

Nothing can expose the universality of the human experience entirely like art does. Art is powerful because it allows us to step into other parts of the world, empathize with other people's life experiences, and even explore parts of ourselves. And that superpower isn't lost on actress Shannon Dang. For the Southern California–born actress, her time in the spotlight has seemingly always coincided with a more profound desire for expression. That driving force shows up in the star's life in numerous ways—from her quirky personal style to her career as a professional dancer to her numerous roles on-screen for the past 23 years. But it's not just the multi-hyphenate's desire for personal expression that's motivating her. Upon further inspection, you can easily conclude that Dang's career has a...
