Last week we presented Part 1 of our interviews with 10 of New York's best DJs, in which the best party-starters clued us in on their top album choices (hint: Yeezus), the best parties they've ever DJ'd, and their secret post-club snacking spots. Today we bring you Part 2, featuring 5 more of the DJs who have our stamp of approval when it comes to having the best night in NYC. From playing Saturday Night Live to playing alongside Kanye West, these are the top DJs you can't miss this fall. More»
When you go out as much as we do, you start to notice all the subtle details, like where to go for a certain type of mood and which places truly care about creating the best experience for patrons. A big part of that is the music we hear, and despite a constant influx of new DJs, we know exactly which ones will actually get us out to the clubs. We took some time to talk to 10 of our favorite DJs, who easily rank among the best in NYC. Click through to read what they had to say, and be sure to check them out at some of the hottest spots in the city this fall! More»
While New York Fashion Week is officially over, any real fashion girl knows that with London, Paris and Milan still ahead of us, the madness has just begun. Luckily, we got a chance to sit down with some of our favorite "it girls" during NYFW to get their insider tips on how to survive the rest of Fashion Month, what essentials they carry in their bags, and what they're looking forward to most for fall. Click through to find out what Annie Evans, Sydney Reising, Sunny Melet, Lydia Hearst, Maxine Bedat and Soraya Darabi had to say when they stopped by our GofG Revlon beauty suite with Beautified at the Bowery Hotel last Sunday for some Dream Dry blowouts and John Barret Salon braids.

While Halloween is still over a month away, one could argue that New York Fashion Week is a precursor of those costumed festivities, as there are plenty of curious characters in town stopping traffic with their outfits. But no one brings "freaky" to fashion quite like Rick Genest (A.K.A. Rico The Zombie, A.K.A Zombie Boy), the tattooed MUGLER muse who took the runways by storm after being discovered by former creative director of the brand, Nicola Formichetti. This season, however, Genest took a break from the whirlwind of NYFW to focus on his newest pursuit—music. More»
Guaranteed hair perfection in 40 minutes or less? We'll take it! Just in time for all the hustle and bustle of Fashion Week, the newest location of Robin Moraetes and Rachel Zoe's DreamDry salon opens today at West 57th Street, not too far from the shows at Lincoln Center. We got a special preview and pamper at the space on Wednesday, and though we expect nothing less from the fabulous Ms. Zoe, we were totally psyched about the sleek black and white decor, e-menu of signature styles ranging from the 1940s-inspired 'Veronica' to the '70s waves of the 'Farrah,' and (of course) the complimentary champagne! We chatted it up with our on-the-scene stylist about which looks are trending, evolving, and are definitely d-o-n-e this fall.
There are countless New York restaurants to choose from, and an even higher number of people vying for tables at the hottest spots in town. From "kitchen connections" to making reservations months in advance, New Yorkers will do just about anything to snag a seat for fine dining. Luckily, one native New Yorker understands that struggle, and he has found a way to help out a lucky few. We sat down with Joshua Stern, founder of the I Know The Chef app, which launched in February. More»
Well, it's impossible not to make an Edgar Allen Poe reference when introducing the newest hot spot to take over 55 Gansevoort, The Raven. With its lush leather sofas, Baroque-print walls textured with velvet, and lithe ladies floating around serving drinks in mod-goth mini dresses, the subterranean space seems like just the type of place Mr. Poe would go to indulge in some absinthe and opium, though top-shelf liquor will just have to do for us. While Henry Stimler's newest venture hasn't even technically opened yet, The Raven is already a fashion crowd favorite, hosting parties for VFiles, Fashion & Style, and even Rita Ora. We had a drink with the British club owner and talked Poe, poetry, and the importance of Instagram marketing. More»
Sure, New York Fashion revolves around Lincoln Center, and just about anyone who’s involved in the industry has seen a show at Milk Studios. But what about the dozens of shows that take place off-site, at unexpected and oftentimes even bizarre venues across the city? From a runway show that took place in an abandoned parking garage to a presentation where models perched on pillars in a body of water, we've seen designers use creative venues to display their work. For editors, stylists and buyers who've seen countless white-boxed runways- chances are, these are the types of experiences that stand out. And Jennifer Blumin of Skylight Group is the one to thank for it all. We had a chance to grill Blumin on just how she gets inspired to convert a postal dock into a fashion venue, and got the low down on the hottest shows to look forward to this season. More»
Last week, G-Shock watches celebrated their 30th anniversary with a massive celebration at Pier 36. The #ShockTheWorld2013 event kicked off with an exclusive press preview of the latest series of shock-resistant wrist-wear and continued with highly-anticipated performances by Yelawolf and Eminem. Em's 8-Mile co-star (and current star of the binge-worthy Netflix series Orange is the New Black), Taryn Manning, made a red carpet appearance. Fellow OITNB-er Dascha Polanco was also on hand, along with supermodel Jessica Stam. We were able to catch up with them to discuss Netflix, scuba diving, and the importance of a good watch. More»
One of the most common questions the staff at Guest of a Guest is asked is how to get into clubs. There's never really one answer, at least not an easy one, but to help solve this issue for so many eager club-goers, we decided to to hear it from the source. We talked to a few of our bouncer friends who guard the most notoriously difficult doors to find out how they view nightlife, and what they look for in people. They gave us the dirt, and it'll help you figure out what to do next time you want to make it past the ropes of the hottest spots in NYC.
