the checklist

get dunked.

The Curator: Haley Stark, Art Director

The News: Cara Delevingne is the latest model-turned-starlet…

and is to appear alongside Nat Wolff in the film Paper Towns, as well as in the forthcoming remake of Peter Pan. With Emily Ratajkowski’s debuting in Gone Girl and Abbey Lee Kershaw in Mad Max: Fury Road, which model will be next to grace Hollywood? Fingers crossed for Kate Moss (but who could forget her first foray into acting?).

The Look: Super soaker

I’m a fan of the wet makeup look, but damp hair, glossy lids, and slick brows aren't enough for me—I’ve been plotting how to look like I just got Dunk Tanked, clothes and all (with this shot by Julia Hetta for Rodeo as reference). So far my only options are ‘wet look leggings’ and to keep a spray bottle at my desk, but I'm sure I'll discover better (and hopefully water-free) possibilities soon.

The Face: Inner shadow

Autumn is preemptively getting me into the holiday/winter/snow blizzard spirit, and this soft blue look in NYLON Korea (shot by Moke Na Jung) has me channeling my inner ice queen. Moving the eyeshadow to the inner corners is just surprising enough to keep it edgy.

The Inspiration: Fat & Furious

This blog has everything: burgers, seafood burgers, exploding burgers, burger ice cream, vampire burgers, and more burgers. But to top it all off, Fat & Furious is now a book! It’s in French, so consider this your new guide to burger cuisine terminology.

The Song: “Dancing in the Street” by David Bowie & Mick Jagger

I can’t believe I only just dug up this gem of a video. How had I lived without seeing Jagger’s jazz hands, or without Bowie’s slow-motion jump shots? The butt shaking? The casual jack-in-the-box choreography and the literal “dancing in the street”? Ah. I will never be without you again.
