Today’s Daily is rapper Nyemiah Supreme, who we challenged along with Wildfang, to go all out with her Tomboy style. “We’re labeled female rappers, as if there’s a difference in what we do from the men,” Nyemiah feels. “And I’m going to talk about sex if I want to.” Your Style Is Your Story and Nyemiah’s is live on SLU now.
Today’s Daily begins our week-long celebration of Tomboys (or girls who break the rules as to how a female “should” dress), produced in collar with Wildfang. Our first video features my mom, Elisa, who feels that one of the sexiest things in the world is a woman in men’s clothes because it’s not expected. Your Style is Your Story and check Elisa’s out while she rocks Wildfang’s tomboy tank. live on SLU now. -Lil
Today’s Special Feature is on artist Cathy Cooper. We love how her earthy, couture style is a reflection of her fearless and ageless tude: “Beauty and fashion is not a hiding place: it’s a place of growth and opening.” Your Style is Your Story and Cathy’s is on SLU now.
Today’s Daily is the literary scholar and poet Frances Keuling Stout. She is a devout Alexander McQueen fan, as well as a Reebok sneaker junkie, considering herself to be elegant funk with a dash of madcapness. Your Style is Your Story, and Frances’s is live on SLU now.
Yesterday’s Ageless Daily was photographer Henny Garfunkel. She believes that great style comes from being an outsider, and, clearly, she is happily one. Henny calls 12” heels the Kardashification of the world, her hair is inspired by the Hopi Indians, and she has something like 19 ear piercings with an earring collection that is the most amazing we have ever seen. Your Style Is Your Story and Henny’s is on SLU.
Today’s Daily is 94-year-old Illona Royce Smithkin. This is our second video on Illona, because she personifies why worshipping youth is a fallacy and you really can’t get enough of her energy. She feels anything but “old,” with so much self-confidence and such a wide open heart, that she lives to spread love to the world. So fearless, Illona feels that everyone is related to her in some way, everyone is family. In addition, she’s never felt more sensual and she has become a fashion sensation in her 90’s, which has everything to do with her expansive spirit and her red lashes that she makes herself. Your Style is Your Story, and Ilona’s is live on SLU now.
Today’s Ageless Daily is dancer Jacquie Tajah Murdock We first spotted her five years ago walking through the East Village in a black velvet Victorian coat. Jacquie says that she came up in an era where women were glamorous and that she doesn’t wear jeans. She is 83 and is determined to not just be another “pretty face.” Your Style Is Your Story and Jackie’s is live on SLU now.
