How I styled Kylie Jenner for Remix Magazine

Issue 85 Lowres (dragged) 3

 I was stoked to style Kylie Jenner for the April 2015 issue of Remix Magazine. The pouty-lipped reality starlet is the latest it girl to spring forth from the Kardashian dynasty. Kylie Jenner is notorious for her edgy, fearless personal style, impeccably penciled pout, and fabulous social calendar.

Remix Magazine and I decided early on that Kylie’s shoot should be fresh, light, and crisp. We settled on a sophisticated pastel palette that embodies Spring 2015’s biggest trends while showcasing Kylie’s natural beauty.

Since Remix is New Zealand’s leading fashion magazine, we wanted to mix pieces from up and coming New Zealand designers with historic fashion houses, trendy LA labels, and a few of my favorite lines available at stylehaus.

Kylie’s dewy, natural makeup and full, textured hair subtly complemented the pieces’ pastel tones and clean lines without overpowering.

 As always, accessorizing was vital in pulling together each look. I layered delicate silver and diamond jewelry for a glamorous yet sophisticated effect.

Like all photo shoots, the Remix Magazine Kylie Jenner shoot was long, complicated, and fabulous. Collaborating with Remix Magazine’s team of talented creatives was inspiring and incredibly fun. I’m so proud of the resulting pictures and delighted to show Kylie Jenner in a new light.



Here’s to Spring!

Coachella 2015 and Neon Carnival

I’m a die-hard Coachella girl, and this year no exception. Unfortunately (or not tbh) I was too busy feeling the music and partying with my favorite people to thoroughly document my festival ensembles. 

I’m not mad about it.

Neon Carnival is my new favorite experience. The ultra creative, invite only fair is a part nostalgic childhood throwback, part megaparty, and exactly where I wanted to be.

Coachella and Neon Carnival were a much-needed respite from my daily grind. This week I returned to work refreshed, inspired, and ultra focused on an amazing but still top-secret fashion project that is primed to launch in late Summer 2015.

Stay tuned.

5 Trends from NYC Fashion Week: Fall 2015

NYC Fashion Week just kicked off, but it’s never too early to start trend forecasting!

I scanned looks from the hottest designers to debut (thus far) and found five amazing pieces everyone will be wearing come Fall 2015.

Don’t wait for the herd to catch on; jump on these trends now!

1. Tome: Vinyl


Plastic is about to be everything. Models sporting shiny, vinyl miniskirts dazzled onlookers at Tome’s Fall 2015 Fashion Show. Once reserved for cheap flooring and records (RIP), vinyl looks sleek and futuristic paired with leather or lightweight knitwear.

2. Alexander Wang: Silver Buttons


Delicate, glittering silver accents made a striking contrast to Alexander Wang’s black-on-black Fall 2015 Collection. Silver is already making a massive comeback in jewelry, but the rows of silver buttons Wang added to tough biker chic jackets made is clear that silver is the new it embellishment.

3. Rag & Bone: Lacy Camisoles


In the early 2000s, I had an entire drawer of lacy camisole tops that I paired with everything and anything. Rag & Bone brought that middle school staple back to life at Fall 2015 fashion week. Worn over lengthy, gauzy t-shirts and paired with pencil skirts, the silky lace camisoles felt simultaneously fresh and classic. If you’re not ready for the cami version, Rag & Bone also showed a delightful slip dress with similar lace accents.

4. Rodarte: Asymmetrical Leather Minis


Leather + Asymmetry = Razor Sharp Edge. The dynamic duo at Rodarte dazzled the fashion world yet again at New York Fashion Week: 2015. Inspired by avian migration, or  “leaving the city to a more pastoral place,” as Laura Mulleavy put it, the collection conveyed whimsy and strength. Party girls and fashionistas across the globe will delight in the feisty sex appeal of an asymmetrical leather miniskirt.

5. Thom Browne: Netted Veils

thomThom Browne’s mafia-inspired Fall 2015 Collection was a magnificently melancholy triumph for the young designer. Each outfit demonstrated the power of mixing textures while remaining true to the show’s story arc. I was smitten with the ebony netted veils that subtly shielded the models faces. Bold? Yes. But trend setting means taking risks, and veils add nostalgic romance to any outfit.
