Your New Friend, Ed

*Disclaimer, I am doing this post because I strongly believe in Ed2010 and shamelessly promoting it, not to show off winning their trustfund (though I am obviously happy about that).

Ed2010 is an aspiring magazine editors best friend.  It is more than a club, it is a way of connecting with the magazine and fashion industry in a way I never thought was possible.  As well as the city chapters (and the main group of course) there are also on campus chapters at schools across the country.  My freshman year at FIT also happened to be the first year Ed2010@FIT was in existence (the four club officers who started it at FIT all have assistant jobs at well respected magazines now).

I was Secretary of FIT’s chapter of Ed2010 for a year and then this Fall semester I stepped up and became President.  The club meets on Tuesdays at FIT and we often have amazing guest speakers from magazines like ELLE, Teen Vogue, Nylon, Real Simple, Marie Claire, Glamour, and Time.  Most of the club members have internships at the best fashion magazines in the country (Vogue, ELLE, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Glamour, etc.) and we are all great at sharing internship tips and advice, and of course contact information.

People are always asking me how I got my internship at Vogue, and though the question really bothers me I simply say two things, Ed2010 and hard work.  I found out about four of my five internships from their constantly updated internship list.  Through my connections in the Ed2010 club I was able to get my ELLE internship which I really feel paved the way for all of my future ones.

Ed2010 also has this amazing “Trustfund” which unpaid interns in the city can apply for and get the chance to win $1,000 just for working hard and writing a fabulous essay, of course.  I found out about a month ago that I was this semester’s winner, and was elated (though maybe not as much as my parents were).  I have squeezed 16 credits into two days, intern at Vogue three days, and I work at Anthropologie on the weekends (shopping money) so getting appreciated for my time and effort is very flattering and really makes me strive to do my best work.

(Also, I was interviewed for the website which you can check out here.)

So everyone please visit the website if you are interested in magazines whether it be editing, styling, writing, or design it will definitely be worth your while.  And if you attend FIT come to one of our meetings: Tuesdays 1-2 pm room A336.

PS: We are having an Assistant Editors Panel Monday April 11 from 6-7:30 pm in room D523.  Check out the poster made by the lovely Nia of Live Glam or Die (our Publicity Officer) for more information.

My Time at Teen Vogue

This was the last photo shoot I worked on when I was interning with Heathermary Jackson.  The shoot was so much fun!  The model, Barbara Palvin, was absolutely adorable, she had so much energy was was absolutely beautiful.  She reminded me of a young Natalia Vodianova, but Hungarian.

I think it turned out really well, I absolutely loved the hair and make up and it was fun to watch them create the look.  The clothes are great because they are super accessible and easy to wear.  It is “Runway Our Way” so the clothes aren’t that expensive at all!

To Dye or Not to Dye

That is the question.

I feel this deep need to do something drastic with my hair.  Maybe not even drastic just something, anything.   My  hair is in the “growing out” stage, and I am too scared to cut it a la Carey Mulligan and too indecisive to pick a “normal” color to dye it.

Then I was re-inspired when I saw Eva Chen’s Tumblr (Beauty Director at Teen Vogue) and all of her beautiful images backstage at the A/W 2011 Fashion Week with the model’s colorful dye jobs.  Last Spring this was a trend as well and I want to do it then too, but I had just gotten my hair done at the Frederic Fekkai salon and I was nervous the dyes would not react well together.

My problem is that I don’t want it to look “punk” or like I am trying to be something I clearly am not, I just want it to be fun and chic!  I also can’t decide if it will look awkward because my hair isn’t very long, it’s about mid shoulder now.  Though, if on a whim, I do end up doing it one random night, I think a light lilac or baby pink would be best with my strawberry blond hair…though I do love the pistachio on the model below.

The one above of Dree Hemingway is my favorite.  Maybe I will just go all out and bleach my hair then dye random strands and the tips.

Model of the Month Club: Jourdan Dunn

Twenty year old British model, Jourdan Dunn, is December’s Model of the Month.  Along with walking over 90 fashion shows since she began modeling three years ago, Dunn was also the first black model to walk for Prada in more than a decade.  She was also on the cover of the 2008 Italian Vogue devoted to black models, as well as I-D, Elle France, Vogue, and Teen Vogue.

Though she is amazingly beautiful, with very high cheek bones and cat eyes, Dunn is probably most known for her killer legs.

Karlie Kloss Takes Over the World

Karlie Kloss

I think it is time I devote a post to Karlie Kloss.  This is mainly because she is everywhere.  Opening runway shows, doing advertisements, being featured in editorials.  And she is only 17.  And grew up in Missouri.  No big deal.  She is also 6 feet tall.

Am I envious? Jealous of this doll faced girl traversing the globe wearing the most beautiful clothes imaginable?  Well yes, maybe a little bit.

But I have to hand it to her, she’s good at what she does, she has an interesting look to her, and she is such a chameleon.  One day she will look like a carefree teenager, 16 years old at best, and then a few hours later with a little mascara and some blush she is a Dior vixen twice her age.

Let’s examine some of her best magazine work, both ads and editorials:

Sonia Rykiel for H & M

Oscar de la Renta

Dior

Marc Jacobs

Hermes

Chloe

And the runway:

Valentino

Lanvin

Karl Lagerfeld

John Galliano

Jean Paul Gaultier

Jason Wu

Hermes

Dolce and Gabbana

Christian Dior

Chanel

Carolina Herrera

Armani
