Swinging onto the indie music scene hair-first, Este, Danielle, and Alana of HAIM are a sister act for the ages. The LA ladies stood out on stage amongst thousands of other South by Southwest performers back in 2012, capturing the attention of both critics and record producers alike, and it's been quite the ride for them ever since. The band—named after their surname—combine pop-y hooks, rock 'n' roll skill, and R&B soul to create a sound that's just as catchy as it is totally cool. Already a buzzband in the UK, and having toured with Brits Florence and the Machine and Mumford & Sons last year, HAIM is quickly picking up the pace over on this side of the Atlantic. They recently released their debut album, Days Are Gone, and it was also just announced that the talented trio will be showcased on Saturday Night Life this month, performing the week after Lady Gaga does! Now if that doesn't make them worth paying attention to, we don't know what would—except perhaps their amazing style?
With her technicolor hair, "love everything" attitude, and style that ranges from runaway to rock star, Chloe Norgaard looks more like she belongs dancing at Burning Man than dressing up backstage at Fashion Week. True, the almost cartoonish California-native is not fashion's typical "It," girl but that's exactly what makes her so standout chic. Starting her modeling career amid the neon lights of Japan, the ever-colorful Chloe is quickly capturing the attention of the entire fashion community, working both catwalks and campaigns around the world. She even managed to snag the coveted spot on the cover of Scott Lipps' hot-off-the-presses photog book, Poplipps. Since that hard-to-miss hair is popping up everywhere lately, and its owner is showing no signs of slowing down, we've decided to delve into this Danish babe's bohemian universe before she jets beyond ours.
Miley Cyrus hasn't been the only young lady catapulted to buzz-worthiness after blurring the lines with Robin Thicke this year. By now, it's safe to assume that we've all seen (quite a bit) of Emily Ratajkowski, the doe-eyed, lamb-holding brunette featured in the controversial "Blurred Lines" video. The 22-year-old Californian certainly isn't afraid to bare-all for her art, a limit-pushing trait that's undoubtedly pushing her career forward. Though she may have arrived on the scene as a vampy video vixen, Emily has held her own in the world of high fashion, working with the likes of Carine Roitfeld and Karlie Kloss this summer. More»
