ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five moments of fashion from across the internet that we loved this week.
Shooting star: Fashionista chatted with 19-year-old photographer Franey Miller, who just graduated high school a year and a half ago but has already shot editorials for publications like Nylon, Oyster and Bullett – talk about an overachiever! “I’ll be in a meeting to get a job, and they’ll be like ‘Oh my god, we love your work.’ And they’ll ask how old I am and I’ll be like, ‘Guess! Ha-ha-ha’ and they give some high wrong number,” she says. Check out one of her photos below:
Face sculpting: So maybe you know a thing or two about contouring (using light and dark coloured makeup to reshape your face), but we bet you’ve never tried the Korean method. Unlike the Western style of contouring, which aims to highlight bone structure and accentuate the cheek bones, the Korean technique “seeks to shrink the face by minimizing its outer perimeter, kind of like pulling the drawstring tight on a hoodie.” Basically, you’re striving to create a cute little oval-shaped face with the ever important (in Korea, at least) V-shaped chin. We think this new technique’s worth a try!
Double-duty dresses: On our blog this week, we rounded up some great dresses that go from daytime to nights out with ease. Perfect for those nights when you work late and find yourself rushing to meet your friends at the bar across town.
Pre-fall trends: Spring hasn’t even sprung yet, but the fashion world is already thinking way ahead. Style.com rounded up the best trends from the pre-fall collections, such as: ponchos (seriously!) at 3.1 Phillip Lim and Elizabeth and James, and reworked tweeds at Chanel (of course) and Thakoon.
Teen titan: It’s the week of amazing teens! The Coveteur sat down with 18-year-old Rookie editor-in-chief Tavi Gevinson and snapped pictures of her wardrobe and living space. Our favourite part is the subtle shade she throws on Miley Cyrus “I liked interviewing Miley Cyrus for ELLE because I normally interview people I am a huge fan of for Rookie, and it was interesting going in without that subjectivity.” Ouch!
