"With short hair you begin to crave pearl necklaces, long earrings, and a variety of sunglasses. And you brush your teeth more often. Short hair removes obvious femininity and replaces it with style. When it starts growing out a little and losing its style, you have to wear sunglasses until you can get it to the hairdresser. That’s why you need a variety. Short hair makes you aware of subtraction as style. You can no longer wear puffed sleeves or ruffles; the neat is suddenly preferable to the fussy. You eye the tweezers instead of the blusher. What else can you take away? You can’t hide behind short hair… you may look a little androgynous, a little unfinished, a little bare… but your face is no longer a flat screen surrounded by a curtain: the world sees you in three dimensions."

“This is my favorite Boy.Band of Outsiders blazer and if you could see the inside, you’d be able to tell that I’ve literally worn it out. I met the designer, Scott Sternberg, fourteen years ago when we both worked as assistants at Creative Artists Agency. Who could have guessed we would both end up in the fashion industry and still be BFFs? The shirt is Alexander Wang and one of about 25 that I own—I have every color in every style. The jeans are Genetic Denim, and I think I own almost as many pairs of Genetic jeans as I do Alex Wang tees. Sometimes it’s all about comfort.”
