    The News: Bastille casts Sophie Turner in new music video for “Oblivion”!

    Actress (and, ahem, NYLON Singapore cover girl) Sophie Turner takes a brief break from her day job in Game of Thrones to star in the new music video for Bastille. Not only is the clip gorgeous, Turner turns out to be a pretty great lip syncer, too.

    The Look: Wildfox Couture Fall 2014

    For fall, Wildfox designer Kimberley Gordon takes a page—literally—from our high school reading list with a collection inspired by Jane Austen. Dubbed “Sense and Eccentricity” (get it?), the Cali brand’s comfy staples come stamped with Jane Austen-isms and Mr. Darcy references. Forget dating jerks...this is real romance.

    The Face:Jason Wu x Lancome Mascara

    A really great mascara can be hard to find, which is why I’m staying loyal to my current fave from Jason Wu x Lancome. From the designer’s recent collab, this lash-hugging formula goes on jet-black, stays put, and perfectly treads the line between naturally defined and doe-eyed.

    The Inspiration: Dree Hemingway for Cole Haan

    The new Cole Haan global ambassador heads to Idaho for Cole Haan’s new fashion movie, where she frolicks in fields, rides horses bareback, and looks gorgeous while doing it. Not only does the grainy-glam movie make us want to take a vacay out West immediately, it represents Americana at its absolute coolest.

    The Song: “Blackout Days” by Phantogram (Future Islands Remix)

    One of the most underrated songs of the summer gets a rework courtesy of Future Islands. With dense, throbbing beats and Future Islands’ signature cinematic soundscape, the blissed-out track is now ready for its time in the spotlight...and on playlists everywhere.
