We talk to Everly’s designers – the sisterly duo Adriana and Fabiana – about the line’s latest collection. Read on to find out their inspiration and what’re digging for spring!
French alternative rock band Phoenix is back with their latest single, “Entertainment.” While we’re loving the jam – we were more intrigued by about the concept of the video – which seems some sort of time traveling modern-saeguk Korean drama. Set in North Korea. Kind of. Yeah – we were pretty confused too.
Also, one of the lead actors is the very handsome Sejin Park - who caught our eye in this video. We hope to see him in future work!

J.Crew and denim company Goldsign collaborate for the first time – and produce a must-have collection for denim lovers alike.
The collaboration features three fits: “Jeane” – a feminine, sexy, high-waist American jean; “Jenny” – a slim leg, classic, 5-pocket, high-waist jean with cuff; “Holly” – a timeless 1950’s high-waist pencil skirt; ranging in price from $198 to $288. The washes vary in authentic vintages, pure indigos, and soft pastels and the fabrics and trims were designed with the modern woman’s lifestyle in mind. Focusing on feminine fits, the washes vary in authentic vintages, pure indigos, and soft pastels.
“This collection was inspired by a flight from New York to Los Angeles as Goldschmied read the Marilyn by Andre de Dienes book. He became mesmerized by an image of Norma Jeane Baker – young and fresh – a natural beauty. She was honest, sincere, full of energy, and motivated to succeed…dressed in red, white, and blue (jeans); she was the epitome of the “American Dream” of the 1950s.”
You can check out the collection now at their site.
You would think that after Alexandra Wallace’s ”Asians in the Library” stunt, people would know better than to insult the strong Asian community. Wallace was met with such angry and passionate reactions that it simply doesn’t seem logical for anyone else to follow in her footsteps.
Well this guy doesn’t seem to get it. Already getting the attention of many, this fellow has been dubbed the “Male Alexandra Wallace” for his racist comments about Asians. Some people are suggesting that this is a joke, but let’s be real- joke or not, this is just another example of ignorance. Watch the video below and tell us what you think:
If there’s one Asian stereotype we’re all very familiar with, its Asian hair. No one knows when this actually happened, but at one point people began thinking that all Asian women had the same kind of hair- straight, black, and very sleek. This myth has become so well known that theres actually something called “Japanese hair straightening” to try and get these hair qualities. Its not uncommon to flip through a magazine and come across an article showcasing different types of hair and as expected, “Asian hair” get its very own section. Do some of us have sleek, black, and straight hair? Of course. Do all of us have this? Absolutely not. People may be shocked to discover that just like everyone else, Asian’s are not all born with the same kind of hair (What!?) So let’s break the Asian myth with some familiar faces. Continue reading for some products we suggest for ALL kinds of Asian hair.
In our interview, cover girl Elodie Yung told me that she’s not a model. In fact, this was her second cover shoot. But as you can see in this BTS video of our cover shoot at The Mountain Mermaid in Topanga Canyon – it didn’t matter. The G.I. Joe: Retaliation star was natural at it – and much more, a natural beauty. She radiated so much warmth on the set that everyone fell in love with her – and I promise, after you watch this video, you will too.
High school: such a pivotal time in young women’s lives for college/career decisions, familial tension, first loves, first rejections, no-holds-barred attitude and unexpected self-discoveries.
And when high school years are depicted on American film and television, extracurricular activities may involve solving murder mysteries (Pretty Little Liars), and unrequited love is sometimes best told through song (T.V. Carpio’s cover of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” in Across the Universe).
One could argue that Tamlyn Tomita’s Kumiko was the ultimate Asian American high school “girl-next-door” crush, even if, back in 1986, the Karate Kid had to travel all the way to Japan to be in the right neighborhood. But in the past 25 years, there have many memorable Asian American girls – as well as British Asians, Asian-Scots and Asian Canadians that we snuck onto the list — that we can look up to (or reminisce with) in these classic tales of high school.
