What is your ultimate dream job/fashion job?
Hi Joonbuggers !
Its been a whole month since I have been here, Seems like much longer right ?
Lots to catch up on, I’ve been a busy boy so lets get right into it.
Style and Nightlife, that’s what Chet, Joonbug's Editor-In-Chief said when they asked me to start writing this column. Well, those of you that have been avid readers will know that there has been a lot of nightlife, but very little style apart from when I went on Fashion's Night Out. In this week's piece of my diary we are going to change all that because instead of me doing a 5 Questions in 5 minutes I am going to write a small piece all about Andrew and Julia Clancey, two very stylish Brits who both love New York and Los Angeles.
Every once in a while a girl needs to feel a little bit like a Victoria Secret Model. Unfortunately, not many of us can throw on a hot pink lace bra and strut down a runway, but a serious blow-out by an amazing hairstylist can certainly help. Enter Michael Viggue and Teddi Cranford at Sally Hershberger Downtown.
At only 25 years old, celebrity stylist Lindsi Lane's talent for style and glamour has set her apart in an industry that's filled with veterans of the field. Having already achieved a great deal of notoriety so early in her career, Lane's success can be attributed to her uncompromising focus on her clients, as well as her dedication to flattering their most appealing features and characteristics. Lane states that it is "so important to love your body. So much pressure is put on people to look a certain way. I am so honored and blessed to help change people's confidence through fashion." It is her own sense of confidence that has supported her throughout her career.
Besides Rachel Zoe's tantrums and quest to ruin former assistant, Taylor Jacobson's, career...we're pleased to share Taylor's new gig - which consists of full-detailed blogging (4 sentences) and endorsing the make-up brand, Everyday Minerals.
Oh, don't act as if you haven't heard of them (though, we really haven't) - we're just excited that Taylor left Rachel where she should be - in the "bananas" and "I die" trademarking office.
Though there may not be too much styling going on - besides styling herself - we're sure Taylor will be building up her network and career in no time.
Taylor writes on her blog:
"Now that 2009 is a thing of the past and we are winding down on January, I see 2010 as an unpaved journey."
It's been a long road, girlfriend.
Upon the return of the Gossip Girl crew to New York City, Blake Lively's stylist must have had cruel intentions for her appearance on set. Is it really a crime to don leather against leather against leather? Leather leggings, leather boots, and leather gloves. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention her divine navy trench that looked stuffed to capacity with - well, let's guess - perhaps leather? Oop!
