If you've been going out in New York for a while, you've most likely encountered Scott Lipps at some point. Despite his nonchalant appearance, he's one of the hardest working people in NYC. Apart from owning ONE Model Management, which represents everyone from Karolina Kurkova to A$AP Rocky, and drumming for Courtney Love, he manages to find time to be at every major party with a camera in hand. He documents his adventures on his PopLipps photo blog, which was released as a book this week. With all the success, he still manages to stay humble ("After a show, if by any stretch of the imagination I can bring somebody a little happiness by giving them a drumstick and taking an Instagram photo with them, why wouldn't I spend two minutes doing that?"), which is why we love running into him at events. We finally had the chance to sit down with him to talk about his favorite NYC restaurants, parties, and much more. More»

This season, however, Genest took a break from the whirlwind of NYFW to focus on his newest pursuit—music. 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»

With a voice as soulfully ethereal as she is, Angela McCluskey lives life like a certified muse—keeping herself inspired while being sought after by countless musicians who've been put under her spell. Kicking off her music career by forming the folk rock group Wild Colonials during a West Coast jam session in 1993, the Scottish songstress has since lent her vocals to a number of international hits, including Télépopmusik's 2002 dance anthem, "Breathe." She and her husband, composer Paul Cantelon, are one of those couples you can't help but fall in love with, a creative duo that's too good to dream up. More»
