Besides, New Yorkers are just as happy with a Mai Tai in hand at 5 pm in a backyard in Brooklyn as they are flying 10 hours to a resort full of tourists. Mahalo!

A few weeks ago at a retro-themed diner in Gramercy, a blue haired 16-year-old sat wide-eyed in a vinyl booth, double-fisting milkshakes and talking about Instagram...and intersectional feminism. That's Kit Keenan for you - Cynthia Rowley's ambitious, aspiring filmmaker daughter who's cooler than any teenager we've ever met. To be fair though, it's in her blood. And while she's definitely not afraid to spread her wings and find her own niche in the world, Kit is a New Yorker through and through, which means good taste in fashion and food is just a way of life. (We mean, how many of YOU spent nights out at Morandi before even hitting your 20s?)

In a post-Eat Pray Love society, and one in which millennials make up most of the workforce (who you callin' lazy?), it is a tempting thought to one day just quit your job and leave it all behind. You're still young enough, possibly crazy enough, and free enough to do so - theoretically.
Julia Roberts: actress, Academy Award winner, America's sweetheart, and...total red carpet rebel? You bet. Channeling her famously free spirited roles in seminal films like Pretty Woman and Eat Pray Love, and well, all of her films really, the practically IRL Erin Brockovich pulled a totally daring move Thursday night when she kicked off her shoes midway through her Cannes carpet circuit for Money Monster.
