Bebe Zeva is probably the coolest 17-year-old you’ll ever meet. A former “I Am Carles” model, she blogs from her not-so-small town of Las Vegas. In a world where thousands of teenage girls cry for attention on their own personal style blogs, the attention comes naturally to Bebe. Her style is truly unique, and she’s been featured in Nylon, Elle, and Seventeen. In January, a documentary, Bebe Zeva, about her life, premiered in Soho. In my exclusive interview with Bebe, she talks about her visit to NYC, comparisons to Tavi Gevinson, and why she doesn’t like to be called a “fashion” blogger.
Newcomers on the New York fashion scene Laetitia Stanfield and Mignonne Gavigan have filled the gap when it comes to statement accessories. Their line, Roarke NYC, debuted in 2009 and consists of beaded chiffon necklaces, bracelets, headbands, headpieces, and even garters for every girl's biggest day. A Roarke piece is spot on with the embellishment trend that has overtaken summer fashions, and serves as the perfect accessory to add a bit of spunk and polish to any outfit, whether it be distressed jeans and a t-shirt or a tailored LBD.
Though Roarke is far from being a unknown label waiting to be discovered (their merchandise has appeared in numerous fashion publications, including Teen Vogue), I can only speculate that their following will continue to increase exponentially in the coming year. Currently their designs are made to order, and are available in numerous prints, sizes, and patterns, included one of their newest designs, the Aztec. Prices start at less than $100 for accessories that will last through seasons to come- and most likely through the greater majority of your closet. Get it while its hot!
Oliver Theyskens, ex-Nina Ricci designer, comes forth in Olivier Theyskens: The Other Side of the Picture, by Julien Claessens with his adolescent infactuation of getting a sex-change. The designer admits his obession with the beauty of women, resulting into imaginating if he were to become one. Theyskens, as a young boy, would tell his classmates he would move to America for the procedure, in addtion to drawing detailed images of women. He believes doing so is what led him into wanting to become a designer. Theyskens, at age 9, then realized it wasn't something he wanted to do, as he accepted the world of adrogyny. Today Theyskens is pleased with fashions interactions with adgrogynous looks, claiming he owns a few pieces he designed during his Nina Ricci term. He's self-titled himself as a "fantasy boy," not identifying his sex gender as a man nor woman. He tells London Times, "People who don’t know me sometimes call me 'Mademoiselle."
Surely model-of-the-moment Chanel Iman isn’t already planning her retirement from the runway? It seems the 19-year-old has decided that conquering the fashion world through modeling alone isn’t enough and has taken some time off to intern at Teen Vogue. The excited model Tweeted: “U will never guess what I've been doing for the last couple of hours. Havin a blast interning at Teen Vogue!! Setup there closet like its mine.” No doubt she’ll feel right at home in the fashion closet.
