Joined by John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, the fashion up-and-comers took part in the Reimagine Learning initiative hosted by New Profit and literary agency WME | IMG at the Top of the Standard. The event was held in support of education reform and improvement, featuring performances by poet LeDerick Horne and, of course, the Grammy-winning John Legend. Click through for an inside look!

Last night Grandlife Hotels once again hosted their NYFW party, "This Is New York," at the Tribeca Grand Studios. The event was an all-out dance party, with notable DJs including Twin Shadow, Blood Orange, Florencia Galarza, and Illuminati AMS all taking turns spinning for the packed house. The headliner for the night was surprise performer Kindness, who performed tracks off his Otherness album, and even got Blood Orange to join him on stage to shred the guitar and sing a few bars himself. The crowd featured a mix of Grandlife regulars, including artist Harif Guzman, DJ Alix Brown, and models Toni Garrn, Hailey Baldwin, and Bella Hadid. Surprisingly, Dave Chappelle lasted the longest, partying with a crew deep into the night, as Illuminati AMS dropped a heavy hip-hop set. Unsurprisingly, this chic rager, if there is such a thing, was once again one of the parties to be at this NYFW.
When you're setting up an online dating profile, there is one part of it that is more important than anything else: your profile picture. As nice as it would be if we lived in a society that thought the "About Me" section was more important than the evidence of physical attraction, we don't (at least when it comes to first impressions). And so, if you're trying to make a good impression on all of the online suitors out there, you have to pick the right profile picture. Ideally, your profile picture shouldn't only show off how beautiful you are (look at you!)— it should also show off a little bit of your personality while drawing people in. This is a daunting and intimidating task. Luckily, it is also one that researchers have shown a lot of interest in. Since online dating and social media profiles became really popular, scientists and researchers have been doing studies and surveys to find out just what your profile picture is saying to those that are looking.
Last night Purple Magazine hosted its NYFW party, celebrating the Spring 2015 issue. The night started off with a lavish dinner at Narcissa, followed by a raucous party at Chez Andre, the club below the Standard East Village. Shortly after the doors opened, an eager crowd already formed hoping to enjoy a moment of the infamous Purple Party before capacity was reached. Nonetheless, the room was filled rather quickly, and in no time it felt like every additional person pushed the limit to the max. This wasn't a problem when Andre Balazs came down with Uma Thurman, who quickly peered at the room before calling it a night. Following their brief but notable presence, the rest of the crowd filtered through Narcissa into Chez Andre: Alexis Dahan, Bella Hadid, Mia Moretti, and Aaron Young all popped in to celebrate with the usual suspects.
