The News: Kanye West + Jay Z + Questlove Team Up With Chris Rock

Watch the Throne masterminds Kanye West and Jay Z are set to executive produce Chris Rock's new film Top Five. Questlove will serve as executive music producer. Yeah, expectations are high.

The Look: Anja Rubik for Forever 21 Fall 2014

Confession: I was kind of freaking out about restructuring my entire closet for fall. But then along came Anja Rubik and the Forever 21 team, who teamed up to create a seriously amazing fall campaign, filled with sheer knee-highs, ankle boots, and fur coats. If you find yourself in need of a foolproof outfit at any point in time over the next few months, just consult this lookbook—that's my plan.

The Face: BCBG Max Azria's Spring/Summer '15 Beauty Look

Post-Fashion Week, I'm keeping it simple with bold brows and a neutral shimmery taupe eye. My only alteration? Loads of mascara to brighten my eyes so it seems like I've had some semblance of sleep in the past few weeks.

The Inspiration: Clemence Poesy for NYLON May 2011

If I could, I would spend all day lounging on a Freud-esque leather couch in head to toe silk Celine. BUT since I can't, I guess I'll just rock some silky basics and bedhead to work on my leather desk chair instead. 

The Song: Chromeo feat. Solange - "Lost On The Way Home (Mat Zo Remix)"

Although they may seem an unlikely combo, this much is true: Chromeo + Solange = a crazy ass time. If you're not quite sure how to process all of the layers, don't even worry about it: Just do as I do and download, kick back, and bop along.
