    The News: SZA x Willow Smith

    If simply knowing that SZA and Willow Smith collaborated on a song doesn’t quite do it for you, watching them perform the unreleased track, “Domino,” will. The duo took the stage at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade last week to debut their etherial R&B jam and, as expected, killed it. SZA also implied there are more Smith-infused tracks on the way (bonus).

    The Look: Cara Delevingne for Pepe Jeans

    Once again, Cara Delevingne proves that all you need are leather jackets, ankle boots, denim cutoffs, and a ruffian mindset. And maybe a spare leather skirt, as well.

    The Face: Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx, $18

    Formulated to imitate Indian kajal (kohl), this liner packs a serious pigmented punch. Line your lids with the super soft pencil, then grab a brush and lightly blend to create an eye-opening rock & roll look.

    The Inspiration: Finok Street Art Instagram

    This Brazilian street artist’s work draws from the pixação movement, so his work does somewhat resemble Os Gemos. But it’s all its own with its sense of humor and unique sense of color.

    The Song: “Gunshot (Paul Thomas Saunders Remix)” by Lykke Li

    Brighton-based producer Paul Thomas Saunders infuses the Swede’s single with smooth synth and a classic saxophone solo, creating a haunting indie pop track that could be seamlessly edited into any John Hughes film.
