If you told me four years ago I would be the co-editorin-chief of a campus magazine, I would have squealed like a little girl. Then I’d probably roll on the floor like an over-exuberant puppy. So when I found out last year that I had been selected for the position, I did just those things (there may have some drool, too... that wasn’t planned). Those things aside, TREND has been a great Spring and summer are by far my two favorite seasons, experience for me.

WAVE H E LLO For those with curly hair, a day at the beach can bring out extra body. Use the surplus volume to your advantage, forget the brush and donâ€™t part your hair. Loosely pull curls into a ponytail, securing with an elastic at the nape of the neck. For those of us without naturally full-bodied hair, try sleeping with your hair in a braid to add texture for the morning. Applying a mousse can help define your locks, too. Try DevaCurl MirrorCurls Reflective Shine Serum. ($25, bestbeautyboutique.com)

I WANT YO UR B O B Shake up long hair with a fake bob! Tousle damp hair and finger-comb locks as you lightly spritz in a root booster to create volume. Try Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast for extra oomph ($24, folica.com). Add a bright headband and pull your hair into a loose ponytail. Fold hair under and pin, pulling out strands to frame the face.
SUC H A T E ASE Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of natural wave and body in hair, even to achieve an elegant look. To create a chic updo, start with the layer of hair closest to your neck and tease. Twist it upward and bobby pin the top loosely to your head. Working upwards, continue in the same way by pinning twisted sections into a messy look. When you have secured each section and reached the hair on the crown of your head, tease it to your preferred height and bobby pin bangs back. Thickening lotion, like Redken Thickening Lotion 06, boosts volume, especially when applied to damp hair ($8, drugstores). Allie Herrick, hairstylist at The Salon in Ames, also suggests a dry shampoo. “It gives you a lot of tackiness and helps lift your hair up,” she says.
FR ESH FISHTAIL Fishtail braiding is a quick way to get hair off your neck and back and it’s a great technique to banish braid boredom. Herrick shared a quick tutorial for fishtail first-timers. 1. Toss your hair to the back, creating a ponytail, then separate it into two sections (section 1 and 2.) Pull out a small strand of hair from section 1, crossing it over section 1 and under section 2. 2. Do the same on the other side—pull out a small strand from section 2, then cross under section 1. 3. Alternate from one section to the other, using different strands each time. Repeat until you have reached desired fishtail length. 4. Apply John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Hairspray ($6, target.com) for longlasting style!

Melt-Proof Makeup PRISMATIC SMOKY EYES With spring blossoming before our eyes, it’s the perfect time to shake out the cobwebs from the dark and dreary winter smoky eye. Greg Link, front desk manager and in-house makeup artist for Smashbox Cosmetics at The Salon in Ames, reveals that achieving a seductively fresh smoky eye merely requires
Achieving a seductively fresh smoky eye merely requires a color change-up, swapping in bright, bold colors and tossing aside charcoals and blacks. a color change-up, swapping in bright, bold colors and tossing aside charcoals and blacks. Link recommends green-eyed vixens try rich purples, blue-eyed beauties paint on pinks and hazel-eyed goddesses apply shades of shiny bronze. For you brown-eyed babes, dark blues and grays will look stunning. After you find your color scheme, ensure that your palette contains a dark, medium and a highlighter shade. Jesse Coburn, Mar y Kay makeup consultant and graduate of La’James International College, reveals the first step is to start with a primer. “It is important to use primer. It keeps everything from running together no matter how much you sweat or rub your eyes, it helps everything stay put.” Link agrees, recommending Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer—see opposite page. ($20, sephora.com) “It primes the lid for the shadow and neutralizes any discoloration the lid may have,” he says.

With classes quickly coming to a close, sunshine and carefree living await. While this means your cumbersome parka can finally be retired, it also means sweating your way through the sunny season, causing a major makeup meltdown. However, makeup primers can keep your look locked into place in spite of a temperature spike. We compiled a list of our top primers to help you beat the heat and ensure that your face glows, not glistens.
THE PERFECT SMOKY EYE 1. Apply primer over the surface of your lid. 2. Start with your darkest shade, says Coburn. Apply to the upper and lower lash line, adding a bit more emphasis toward the outside corner of the eye. 3. Starting at the inner corner of the eye, apply your medium color across the lid up to the crease. 4. Spread the highlighter shade just below the brow bone. Add some highlighter to the inner corner of the eye, which will make eyes appear brighter and more open. 5. Coburn and Link both say the trick to attaining a fabulous smoky eye is blending, which will eliminate the lines between the different hues. You shouldn’t be able to see where one shade ends and the other begins. The key to getting a great blend is using the right brush, like the Smashbox Vanity Brush Collection Seven-Piece Set ($85, sephora. com) or the Mary Kay Five-Piece Brush Collection ($35, marykay.com). If you are having trouble with blending, Link suggests using a lighter color on top of the darker colors and blending from there. 6. To make a smoky eye super intense, just add liner and black lengthening mascara such as CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very Black ($8, target.com).

Sara Sahl from The Salon Professional Academy explains the role of makeup primers. “Primers serve two different purposes. They are going to allow makeup to stay in place and last longer. [Primers] give you a summer look without using more foundation, while smoothing away impurities.”

Workouts for Your Personality
KOSAMA For a high-energy, motivated individual who thrives on an intense, group-oriented workout Kosama offers different exercises each day, including plyometrics, kettle bells, kickboxing and more. “The program is always changing and evolving; we are adding new stuff all the time,” VanWinkle says. These hour-long group workouts are offered at their gym located on 546 Main Street, Suite 101 in Ames. The effectiveness of this workout system is due to its ever-changing nature, keeping muscles confused. During each class, an instructor demonstrates the moves while another corrects participants’ form. For further customization, coaches perform four versions—beginner to extreme—of each move, enabling individuals to choose what best corresponds for him or her. This personalization and intensity give Kosama its edge. “It is a group fitness class with a personal trainer touch,” VanWinkle says. “It is a high-energy and high-encouragement atmosphere; no one is ever told that they can’t do something.” Visit them online at ames.kosama.com.

Finding the perfect workout can be as difficult as locating Ryan Gosling’s clone. Well your dreaded dumbbell days are over. Whether you identify yourself as a high-energy aficionado, zen queen or adrenaline junky we have a workout to match. Kyle Mantick, fitness specialist at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Kyle VanWinkle, owner of Kosama Ames, help you decide your perfect workout. YOGA
For a calm, patient woman seeking a relaxing workout
For a boundary-breaking, adventurous, thrill chaser
For some, the word “yoga” may induce images of women sitting around gossiping. Yoga is in fact an ancient form of exercise that provides a plethora of health benefits. Increased strength, flexibility and balance are perks of the yoga arts. “You will be improving your muscle endurance because of the holds over a long period of time,” Mantick says. Mantick suggests practicing two or three times a week for 30-35 minutes. “The biggest tips for people interested in yoga is to start out slow and get with a certified instructor to make sure you are doing movements correctly,” he says. With a steady stretching schedule, expect to gain lean muscle and a kick-ass core. “The moves that are done in yoga really strengthen the core muscles, giving people flattering abdominals,” Mantick says.
“Rock climbing is a great workout and works a variety of muscles,” says Mantick. “Rock climbing will improve your core strength, flexibility and muscle endurance.” He also says the combination of flexibility and strength exerted during rock climbing creates sculpted muscles. “People who are adventuresome and think outside the box will enjoy rock climbing. There are no boundaries in this sport and there is always room for improvement. It is not the traditional type of sport, which may make it exciting for some people. It will give you a great workout and an awesome rush of adrenaline,” says Mantick. And with rock walls at both Lied and State Gym, a boredomblasting workout is only a hop and a skip away.

“They’re a great substitute for a meat,” Bennett says, “as well as [for] those trying to eat healthier.”
TOMATO-TOPPED ZUCCHINI FETTUCCINE
Preheat your grill on medium heat.
2 large zucchinis 4 medium tomatoes 1/8 cup olive oil 1/8 cup pine nuts, chopped 1/8 cup basil, chopped
Prepare your mushrooms by wiping them with paper towels and removing stems. Don’t use water, the mushroom will absorb it. Mix the bell pepper, garlic, olive oil, onion powder, black pepper and salt together in a large bowl. Next, turn the mushrooms over and slather the textured undersides of each one with your mixed seasonings and pepper. Don’t be shy, smear it on for a robust taste. Place mushrooms, seasoned side up, on your covered grill for 15 minutes, checking occasionally. While grilling, start whipping up a side dish like our zucchini fettuccine.
1 tsp. garlic, chopped 1/2 tsp. oregano, chopped 1/2 tsp. chopped jalapeño pepper salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS Use a vegetable peeler to take the skin off the zucchini. Then peel the zucchini lengthwise to slice wide ribbons that resemble fettuccine. Throw the zucchini in a colander and add a little salt. Let it drain and toss it every few minutes. Pat dry after ten minutes of this.
Mix in the remaining tomatoes with your puréed sauce, adding pine nuts, oregano, salt and basil. Divvy up your zucchini noodles into two meal-sized portions, pour on tomato sauce, and sprinkle with pine nuts.

Still in a style slump from winter? The spring runways were ablaze with bold colors and rhythmic patterns to put the spring back in your step. Translating high fashion runway trends into your everyday wardrobe can be a frightening task. But fear no more, because we will take three of the hottest spring runway trends of 2012 and show you how to rock them. The monochromatic color scheme has proved to be hot this season, seen on nearly every runway. This classic trend is as easy as it gets. The idea is to layer on different shades of one color. Our favorite scheme consists of bright and neon greens, used by Lanvin and Y-3. There are no particular rules to follow, just play around with it. Try a grass green tee, lime twill shorts and polish it off with bright white classic TOMS. Not ready for a lime green ensemble? Eric Vos, associate designer at Polo Ralph Lauren says he prefers “a khaki color story” if he’s doing a monochromatic color scheme. He says it is a nice transition from the drab, dullness of winter and sets you up nicely for the colors of summer. Ethnic tribal patterns and loud geometric prints were key this season at Burberry Prorsum and Versace. As bold as tribal is, the key is to keep it mild. A colorfully printed tank under a knit cardigan is a great way to get into the trend. If that’s a little too crazy
for your taste, Vos advises to try a “southwest inspired-scarf or an interesting print on a tote bag.” Even the smallest additions won’t go unnoticed. Want to keep it casual? Perfect, because athletic inspirations are in. This sporty trend has been executed perfectly by the Dsquared² spring collection. With high intensity, warm colors and lustrous polyester fabrics, you will create a bright and fresh look for spring that is bound to set you apart. A color blocked zipup, like the one above from Supremebeing, will draw attention in all the right ways and accentuate your jocular personality. Pair it with light washed denim and a cool pair of kicks for a unique and chill look. Brice Pattison, assistant at Todd Snyder, told us best how to wear this season’s newest pieces. “If you are going to follow trends, don’t wear all of them at once,” he says. “It makes you look too conscious, not confident.”

Despite only appearing in three major motion pictures, man of style James Dean captured the essence of cool and distilled it into a T-shirt, jeans and a bright red windbreaker. In his seminal Rebel Without a Cause, Dean showcased his brand of all-American nonchalance, making his renegade character the coolest protagonist in cinema history. Dean was killed in a car accident driving his Porsche before his third and final film was released.
“Live fast, die young” might have been the motto of this rebel, but you can cop his style without the self-destructive attitude. Channel Dean’s confrontational cool with the classic staples that should be found in any self-respecting man’s closet. Nothing captures his aloofness like the unsung heroes of the modern man’s wardrobe, like the basic white T-shirt. Paired with a pair of dark, straight-leg denim, you have an effortless, stylish look on your hands.

Known for tight dresses in decadent feathers and naked women in his ad campaigns, Tom Ford knows a thing or two about fashion: sex sells. The former Gucci designer built his own empire on the concept, and even after an acclaimed directorial effort, Ford isn’t considering abstinence anytime soon. Always catering for the well-to-do peacock, Ford never shies away from animal print swimwear and velvet dinner jackets in his menswear collections. And in his own closet? Ford is the playboy par excellence, rarely appearing in anything less suave than a three-piece suit. Most days, his look of choice is a simple black suit with a white shirt — the catch being his shirt is always unbuttoned halfway down his chest. Let this be a warning to budding ladykillers out there, however: Tom Ford is a professional, and his stylish stunts should only be attempted at home under strict supervision.
CARY GRANT Between Hitchcockian heroines and Hollywood heartthrobs, Cary Grant had his hands full back in the day. But even with his romantic escapades on and off camera, Grant always found time to dress up. Still known today for his impeccably modern style, the North by Northwest actor is the sophisticated gent who oozes class and sex appeal through his grey wool suit. “The key to his personal style was minimalism,” says Richard Torregrossa, author of Cary Grant: A Celebration of Style. “Simplicity employed with such

beautiful precision that it became its own kind of elegance, a touchstone that is still relevant today.” Dangerous albeit debonair in the oftenperilous circumstances his characters found themselves in; Grant’s elegant wardrobe is the stuff of movie star magic. The costume department, however, wasn’t the only thing deciding what was going on Grant’s back; in fact, the actor was famously particular about his suits, often choosing only the highest quality bespoke from London’s Savile Row.
Where did Grant get his poise and panache? He, too, honed his look by methodically cherry picking the best style qualities from people he observed, says Torregrossa. If you’re looking to tr y Grant’s immaculate suiting on for size, make sure to find yourself a trusted tailor who knows their way around a measuring tape. Much like a double agent plot in one of his films, looking this understated allows no room for error.

No one loves Kanye more than Kayne loves Kanye. It’s more than cockiness; it’s confidence. And more specifically, it’s a little thing called swagger. Whether it’s his trademark slotted shutter shades or a women’s Céline shirt, West takes more fashion risks in one ensemble than some men do in a lifetime. Just as at home wearing leather pants and a fur coat as he is in a hooded sweatshirt and

sneakers, West always makes a statement. With his enviable collection of fine jewelry and man bling, just a glance at him shows that fending off those gold diggers is a harsh reality for the musician. West’s style is equal parts preppy, high fashion and hip hop, but since the debut of his line at Paris Fashion Week last fall, Yeezy is just going to get bigger, brasher and bolder.

A GRAND GENTLEMAN We may look in magazines and online to see who has the best fashion sense, but sometimes there are guys right here on campus with a style worth studying. Our man of style, Alex Olevitch, sophomore in architecture, sat down to tell us about his wardrobe and style tips. TREND: How would you describe your personal style? Alex Olevitch: I like to try to dress so I look nice, because that will always be acceptable. I try to stick with classic looks because they stand the test of time and are always in fashion. I prefer things that are cleaner cut and sort of preppy and definitely not over-the-top. T: Where did your style originate? AO: My interest in fashion developed when I came to college. I felt that I should project the image that I care about since being a design major is about making things aesthetically pleasing. T: Where do you look to find your fashion inspiration? AO: I get inspiration from reading GQ and reading the blog Isaac Likes. I also look to my friends’ styles and build off of current trends. I like to get inspiration from multiple places. I would say I really admire the style of Ryan Gosling. He dresses in a very classic, cleancut style.
T: What’s your no-fail go-to outfit? AO: Definitely khaki-style chino pants and a chambray shirt. It’s a very classic look that looks really good and doesn’t require a lot of planning.
44 BEAUTIFUL LITTLE FOOLS 52 CIRCUS COUTURE
T: Where do you like to shop? AO: J. Crew, H&M and Topman are some of my favorite places to shop. I look for good pants and button-ups. I think ties and watches are great men’s accessories. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to look good. If you pay attention to sales and check out the clearance rack, you can find some really nice stuff. I prefer to buy patterned, clean-cut, classic-styled clothing. I also like to shop at thrift and vintage stores. I have found some really cool tie bars from thrift store hunting. T: Any advice for other guys? AO: Dress how you would like to dress. Wear things that you really like that make you feel good and true to who you are. Your personal dress should be for you and not to please others. Still, take care with your look. I really admire when other people dress boldly and try to push the fashion envelope, even if it fails. I like to see that people try to diverge from their default and try new things.
T: What should every man have in his wardrobe? AO: Good pants, chinos, khakis and really good shoes. Great pants can make a shirt that may not look so good better and can really make an outfit.

PANTONE FASHION FORECAST
Colors of the Season The Pantone colors of the year play a very important role in the fashion world as the styles of each season are created. The diversity and texture each of the colors gives this year’s style a unique, upbeat and modern twist.
TANGERINE TANGO After the season’s runway shows, it is very clear that juicy splashes of orange will bombard stores this spring and summer. Pantone Inc., the world-renowned authority on color, has announced the lively Tangerine Tango as the 2012 color of the year. This playful shade is an easy and fun addition to any wardrobe and we have a few tips to help you incorporate it into your style. One option is to combine the rich Tangerine with other solid colors, such as a bright pink, a rich cobalt blue or even neutral and summery white. “Color blocking is huge this season,” says Angela Grant, manager of Fab’rik boutique in West Des Moines, Iowa. If you’re feeling especially daring, skip the neutral colors altogether and color block with only bold, chic shades. “Wear Tangerine tango on top and cobalt blue on bottom, or pair it with other citrus hues when the weather gets warmer,” says Tracey Lomrantz, contributing style editor at Glamour. Color blocking can be combined with other hot trends, such as mini skirts, cutout dresses and the midriff-baring crop tops of the season. Prints are another big trend for spring and summer, and can be made even bolder by creating an outfit with a vibrant color, like Tangerine Tango. “I think Tangerine looks great paired
P a g e 3 0
up with leopard or polka dots—two of spring’s other fun trends,” says blogger Danielle Brunflodt of lifes-a-journal.com and contributor to beautybets.com. For those that fear color, or are simply not in love with orange, Tangerine Tango can be used as a much needed pop of color to make a neutral ensemble fresh. Try wearing the color in a top, skinny pant, or slouchy cropped chinos and pair it with blush or nude toned accessories and shoes. For those of you who aren’t quite ready to jump in and add this sunny hue to your wardrobe, there are some great ways to mix the color into your beauty routine. Try a fun nail polish, such as O.P.I.’s Roll in The Hague from the Holland Collection or Essie’s Clambake. “Orange pedicures are totally chic,” Lomrantz says. The cheerful color can also be worn as a gorgeous blush or a lip stain, such as with Stila’s Two-In-One Mango Crush Lip and Cheek Stain, available at sephora.com. With its radiant energy, Pantone’s Tangerine Tango is perfect way to enhance any mood and can be incorporated into your everyday style.

WIT H ITS RADIANT E NE RGY, PANTO NE ’ S TANG E RINE TANG O IS PE RFE CT WAY TO E NH ANCE ANY MO O D AND CAN B E INCO RPO RAT E D INTO YO UR E VE RYDAY ST YLE . SOLAR POWER
Solar Power is a vibrant yellow color with a hint of gold, just as beautiful and bright as the sun. This is one of the many neon colors that Kim Vander Woude, divisionial merchandising manager at Von Maur says to pair with denim this season. This color tells people, “Here I am!” A must-have raincoat or ruffled blouse will place all eyes on you.
Sodalite Blue would best be mixed with the neutral tones of tans, creams, whites and browns, accenting the deepness of the color. Or mix it with a print that includes Solar Power and black. Vander Woude says, “A cobalt blue color is a must-have, it fits with any hair color or skin color. This color also works well with color blocking.”
Driftwood is a neutral tone receiving attention for this summer. This shade is great combined with leather accents and white, giving a refined vibe. You can also mix Driftwood with another brown tone for this season, Starfish. This color is great for a cardigan, vest or shawl on top of fun colors like pink, baby blue and pistachio green.
Bellflower can be described of as purple with a new twist. It is best combined with whites or creams, making the Bellflower stand out in an elegant and mature way. Chic choices like silver chrome, black and grays mixed with this swift purple tone, gives an edgy and confident effect.
An interesting color name such as Margarita speaks for itself. Incorporate this into your wardrobe with a nail polish shade like OPI’s Thanks a WindMillion from the Holland collection, or pair it with a soft, pale yellow in any outfit. Wanting to rock this color with jeans? Use neutral colors mixed with Solar Power or wear gold accessories for that thrown together yet perfectly simple look.
Cabaret is a crowd pleaser with its ability to mix with many different tones. This color is best seen in a floral print or mixing black and white, using its unique energy to make spring come alive or to make a sophisticated combo. This season OPI is featuring a color called Kiss my Tulips, one of the new polishes in their spring Holland Collection.
Sweet Lilac is a classic color and can be worn by men and woman of varying skin complexions and hair colors. The pale pink and purple mix is outstanding when mixing with neon colors. Many new prints are incorporating these colors together for summerwear.
Cockatoo is a superb color to accent those with deeper skin tones. “Shades of jade and coral are going to be very popular, so be selective and try not to repeat colors to keep a variety in your wardrobe,” Vander Woude says. Cockatoo mixes well with neutral tones and bronze accessories, which are a great way to spice up an outfit. Weiss-Fischmann also says, “Nail lacquer is a great, affordable accessory; it can complement or emphasize your clothing and complete your entire look. You can change your nail color as often as you change your clothes, or you can select one great, trendy color that will work with many different styles.” A solid color piece like a shirt, tank or dress in this color would be the perfect finishing touch to your unique, flirty closet.

STREET VS. RUNWAY
Style Wars The model prances down the runway, feet pounding to the blasting beat. She halts at the end, striking a pose as the photographer hurriedly snaps his shutter. The reporters swarm, asking her name and what she is wearing – and the music stops. Turns out she isn’t a model at all. The runway? A cold, no-name slab of concrete in Middletown, America. This scene is becoming the norm in the fashion world. Street style blogs such as The Sartorialist and Who What Wear have become a main source of inspiration for real women and designers alike. Rachel Nguyen started her blog, That’s Chic (thatschic.net) during her senior year of high school in 2007 and has since had much success in the blogosphere. Although Nguyen started out pulling and posting inspiration from the latest trends on the runways, she admits to a changing of tides. “I’m not as attentive [to designers] as I used to be when I first started my blog,” Nguyen says. “I realized, ‘Why am I even looking at stuff like this because I can’t really relate to what they’re wearing.’” And that is the appeal of street style, according to Nguyen. The ability to relate to trends and sources of inspiration is what tipped the scales in favor of the masses. Ranya Barrett, executive assistant to the editor-in-chief and assistant writer at Glamour, agrees that street style adds a sense of realness and applicability to trends. Glamour has traveled all over the country to see how real women dress, resulting in the magazine’s Caught Looking Good page. “Before, when the focus was almost entirely on the runway or the models, the shapes were mostly dictated by [models’] bodies,” Barrett says. “Now it’s women with curves and different body types, and I think that’s exciting for [readers] because it makes them feel like they can access the trends no matter what their shape or size.” Although Barrett and Nguyen are pro-street style, some hold reservations on

With street style becoming a more prominent source of inspiration for the fashion-minded, where does that leave runway? TREND talked to Rachel Nguyen & Glamour assistant Ranya Barrett to find out. the trend, questioning the authenticity. Will Welch, senior editor at GQ, argues that street style has become over-thought and thus lost the excitement and authenticity that once made it so unique. “It’s the same with the underground music scene, or you know, the cool underground art scene,” Welch says. “It’s just the way trends work – you go from brand new to hip to trendy to overexposed to dated.” Barrett acknowledges the saturation of the blogging market, but maintains faith, citing a recent assignment trip to Miami as an example. “Women were playing volleyball, they weren’t dressed up to do something,” Barrett says. “We approached them and said ‘you look beautiful, your body’s great, we love your style, can we snap your picture?’ To me that’s as authentic as you can get.” Despite the criticism, this is what the fashion industry has become, and Barrett has faith in the future. “The importance of designers will never diminish,” Barrett says. “But I think that street style is definitely something to pay attention to and put up there in terms of what’s influencing trends.” So what does it take to create an authentic street style look? Nguyen says it’s a lot more than rummaging through the nearest Forever 21. “Style comes from within, it doesn’t come from what you read in a magazine,” Nguyen says. “It’s going to a pile of dirty old clothes in a thrift store and really pulling out something that looks unique.”

Each store will put out a signature collection with exclusive products just for Target customers. The first store to be featured is The Privet House. Originating in Greenwich, Connecticut, The Privet House is a home accessories store known for having quirky antiques and vintage items from Europe as well as carrying high-end lines of tableware and glassware. For their signature Target line they will be featuring décor and accessories for the home and garden. The second store is The Webster House.

clothing, accessories and photography. Featuring flamingo and deco prints in coral, navy and green, Webster House brings beach-inspired clothing and accessories to Target.

This dog bakery is unique, specializing in natural, freshly baked goods and stylish accessories for pooches. Their line will feature treats, as well as fun dog accessories. Another store involved with The Shops at Target is The Cos Bar. This Aspen-based makeup boutique has been known for their luxury makeup, skincare, fragrance and men’s grooming brands since they first opened in 1976. Lily Garfield, president and founder of The Cos Bar, is thrilled to be working with Target. “I can’t tell you how exciting this is— to have such a huge company take us under their wing,” she says. “It’s surreal and we are
deeply honored that The Cos Bar was chosen to put our name together with Target.” With their very own signature line, The Cos Bar will be featuring exclusive bath, body and beauty accessories and cosmetic bags in dramatic prints. Garfield and her employees love the bath gel, body scrub and body cream from the line. She says girls will love them, too. The final collaboration with Target is The Candy Store. This sweet candy store from San Francisco carries every sugary treat imaginable. A combination of the classics as well as the newest treats, The Candy Store will carry a mixture of sweets for The Shops at Target. Mark your calendars for May 6th so you can pick up any of the nearly 400 items from these five stores. Be sure to stock up on your favorites, though, because these limited edition products will only be available for six weeks!

AS PART OF HER JOB AT GLOBAL MAMAS, GALASSO OVERSAW THE CREATIONS OF THESE GARMENTS
LOVE YOUR PRODUCT. KNOW YOUR PRODUCER. CHANGE HER LIFE. Over 600 African women’s lives have significantly changed for the better because of the brand name Global Mamas. Global Mamas is an organization that creates a steady income for women in Africa by generating jobs and training the women to produce and sell certain goods. It is a company and a family, according to Jessica Galasso, an apparel design graduate of Iowa State University. Galasso gave a speech in LeBaron Hall on her experience with Global Mamas; discussing how she spent summer 2010 interning with the company in Cape Coast, Ghana. She now works full-time in Africa, giving hands-on assistance to the women. Galasso spoke of her free-spirited life in Africa, introducing the audience to many different Mamas through pictures she had taken on her journeys. As she told stories of her experiences, you could hear Galasso’s passion for her work and the women. Global Mamas started with six producers in 2003 and now has 500 producers in nine different countries, and 627 hardworking women involved in the organization overall. The company gives opportunities to women they normally wouldn’t have. They create small women-owned businesses and acquire a group of volunteers and interns that are able to train the Mamas in areas like product development, fair trade, computer literacy and quality control, among other things.

Global Mamas creates over 180 products with hundreds of unique designs in order to make their profit. The Mamas produce goods such as apparel for men and women, jewelry, bags, skin care items, home essentials and more. The majority of the merchandise is vibrantly colored and patterned by using an ancient form of batik, which is when hot wax is painted or stamped onto the fabric then dyed, giving each fabric its own distinct look. Within Global Mamas, they rely on the women to tell their friends and family about the job opportunities to broaden their business. Galasso says this actually makes the business more of a community and family. Galasso also expressed the benefit of meeting so many new people from everywhere around the world, though what seemed to be her favorite aspect was how sporadic her days at work could be. “It’s definitely a job where you just have to go with the flow,” she says. “If you go to work expecting to get one thing done, something always comes up and you end up doing something completely different.” “The worst problems turn out to be the best ones,” she adds positively. The volunteers and interns try to help teach the Mamas more up-to-date styles. In the past couple years, they have been working to make tunics and blouses more shapely, creating skirts with more pleating and making A-line dresses. Fa s h i o n
Added items to the Global Mamas product line means more business for the organization. With all of the proceeds going directly to the women producing the merchandise, it helps lead to their financial success and independence. “Love your product. Know your producer. Change her life.” The Global Mamas motto could not be more fitting. On the Global Mamas website, globalmamas.org, you are able to Meet the Women, which shows you a list of each woman’s name, the product she makes and where she lives. This way you can see for yourself exactly who you’re helping in Africa, also assuring you about getting an authentic product. Not only does Global Mamas help the women gain financial independence, but it helps them earn respect from their husbands and families, another added bonus that is usually uncommon for women in Africa. Global Mamas is helping one woman at a time, and by buying their goods, anyone can change the livelihoods of these African women, giving them hope and support.

Sweat in Style D ON’T SAC RI F I C E W E AR A B I L I T Y FOR VAN I T Y AT T H E GY M. It’s not important to be hot, but to work what you’ve got in your most versatile clothes. No matter what time of the year, working out is essential and everyone should partake in it as part of their daily lifestyle. But what is the solution to a happy, yet affordable, workout? It is important to have at least a week’s worth of gym attire, leaving no room for excuses about not owning enough clothing to work out. When searching for the correct pants or shorts, comfort is key. Kandace Beuer, personal trainer at the new State Gym, says personal preference wins every time. “Many girls are concerned with how they look while working out and stick to yoga pants,” she says. Whatever you may choose though, avoid wearing street clothes; polos, khakis, button-downs and jeans. Those are all big nono’s of working out. Comfortable clothing allows for full range motion and natural movement. Pants should not be baggy or lose because this creates extra heat while exercising. When choosing a top, look for something breathable and flattering. Being self-conscious is something you want to avoid while exercising because appearance will be the only thing on your mind. Aside from attire, one of the most important aspects of comfortable exercise
is shoe support. Eric Schecuel, former trainer at various Aspen Athletic Clubs, says, “Look for shoes with a good arch support and little elevation. Wearing the proper shoes will protect your feet, shins and knees from any possible future damage. Popular shoes of the season to look for are Nike Free Run and Nike Air Max.” For the most reassuring protection, ask a salesperson from any local athletic store to measure your foot. This will ensure you are purchasing the best shoe for your comfort.

Social Stigmas What bloggers like Gabi Gregg and Tanesha Awasthi are doing is breaking the social stigmas that classify all plus-size or fat women as unhealthy, lazy and worthless. The American society holds a negative reputation that all men and women in this category are unhealthily overweight, which isn’t accurate. “I know people who eat really well, who eat healthy foods and are plus-sized,” says Gregg. “It always doesn’t mean you don’t work out either. There are fat people who are really unhealthy, who don’t work out and there are skinny people who are really unhealthy, who don’t work out.” Awasthi says women have allowed society to create social stigmas associated with being plus-sized, and until they stand together to demand respect, love and equality, change will not happen.
You take your girl / and multiply her by four / now a whole lot of woman / needs a whole lot more / big girls, you are beautiful! — MIKA, Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)
Lovin’ Yourself Gabi Gregg of gabifresh.com celebrates her plus-sized figure and encourages other women to do the same. “If you are plus-sized, you should just know there is a world out there where there are plus-sized or fat men and women who are happy with their bodies, happy with themselves and who dress well,” Gregg says. “It’s sad, but it’s true that there are so many people who don’t even know we exist. That it’s only fat people who hate themselves.” Gregg knows a thing or two about dressing her voluptuous figure, as she has contributed to notable publications like Glamour, The New York Times and Vogue Italia. She is among a growing group of women fashionistas taking the blogging world by storm. Tanesha Awasthi is a part of the plus-sized community as well.

Mika sings it and he sings it well. Big girls, you are beautiful. In America, there has always been an internal battle every woman spends her life fighting. The battle to stay thin, to fit into an idealized version of herself and then portray that body as perfectly as possible. Well, some women are tired of the charade. They’re ready to embrace who they are: curves, fat and all.
“It starts with loving ourselves. The saying, ‘No one can love you if you don’t love yourself,’ is absolutely true. We must lead by example, by loving and accepting ourselves, so the rest of society can grow to accept beauty in all sizes, shapes and forms,” she says.
Who Are You? Ladies, in the end it’s all about evaluating who you are and coming to terms with your body. With the internet, it’s becoming easier to find body inspiration, especially through blogs like Gregg’s and Awasthi’s. Awasthi leaves these final words of advice, “Love yourself for who you are, not the label society has put on you, or the negative stigma associated with it. You are who you perceive yourself to be, not how others see or judge you.”

She’s not anxious to find her Mr. Right, but in the meantime, she’s on the lookout for a guy with dark hair and blue eyes - although she laughs and says, “that’s not a requirement.” Moore’s major in art and design with an emphasis in psychology and education and a minor in Spanish shows how ambitious she truly is. This ambition does not fade when it comes to the search for her future beau. “Honestly, I’m kind of picky,” she explains. “But I guess that’s because I’ve been screwed over by boyfriends in the past. I just want someone who’s genuine, fun and witty. I give people a chance.” With a beaming smile and a bit of confidence, any Iowa State man could take on the new reigning Bachelorette. Confidence is key, but being humble is also a must for her. Moore is looking for a man who will walk right up to her and ask her, politely, if she’d like to go out to dinner sometime. “I’d want to be asked out in person,” she says. “Not enough guys just ask girls to dinner

anymore. They just talk to girls on Facebook. Be forward, but not demanding. I got asked out one time and they said, ‘So we’re going out this Friday, right?’ and I was like ‘Do I have a choice?’” One of the toughest questions for Moore to answer was being asked to describe herself in three words. After careful consideration, she was able to choose a few. She says, “lighthearted, genuine and thoughtful.” And after listening to her hold up a conversation, there’s no doubt that these are all qualities she possesses. When it comes to Moore’s best qualities, besides her optimism and sense of humor, she is proud of her self-confidence and her warm smile. “I’m definitely comfortable with myself and confident in who I am,” she says. Later, we asked Moore if she would use any of the strategies from the Bachelorette to help slim down all her new options on campus. She joked about running around campus, handing out roses and sarcastically claims she would “definitely do group dates with twenty guys in a hot tub.” Kate Moore is cracking jokes and beaming like only the ultimate Bachelorette should be. Boys, this girl is the perfect catch.

AVOIDING THE PLAYERS RESPECT YOURSELF If the little voice in the back of your head is telling you that you’ll regret it eventually, you probably will.
Why the Bad Boys? It’s the age old question: why are girls so attracted to bad boys and players? Think about it. At least once in your life, there’s been that one man who’s caught your eye. He’s confident, witty, knows how to dress and knows how to hold a girl’s attention. Despite his charm and good looks, his reputation isn’t one you would have on a checklist of Prince Charming qualities. Ignoring the little red flags in your brain and the countless warnings from your best friend, you start to pursue this guy. Regardless of if he’s pursuing you in return, things aren’t going to end how you expect. Your best friend may not say she told you so, but you know she’s been right all along. So, why do we put ourselves in these situations time and time again? Dr. Lori Hart, speaker for campuspeak who specializes in college relationships, helps us decipher the male and female brains to answer those tricky questions about the opposite sex. Let’s think first to the images that Hollywood and Disney put in front of us. What do the movies Friends with Benefits, A Walk to Remember and Crazy Stupid Love have in common? The insanely attractive, suave, witty and rebellious male protagonists were all changed by love. Even Disney used this same idea in the recent hit Tangled. Let’s not forget the classic Disney princesses, who all had their very own Prince Charmings.
P a g e 6 6
Dr. Hart says that from a very young age, society gives us views of what relationships are supposed to look like from the different gender’s perspective. “Every little girl’s fairy tale has the prince,” says Dr. Hart. “Every little boy’s story has a superhero. The biggest difference is that there is nothing about love and marriage in the little boy’s story.” By the time we get to college, we’re all used to the fact that we’re not going to be literally swept off our feet by a knight in shining armor. However, in the back of our minds, we’re still longing for a romance that rivals the cheesiest of romantic comedies. So, we begin the hunt for our own real life Ryan Reynolds. “Hollywood and the media give women a checklist of what they should want, and women aren’t taking the time to evaluate themselves and what they really need,” Dr. Hart says. Why, exactly, are we so drawn to the guys who will, most likely, end up driving us to tears, confusion and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s? “It’s all about confidence,” Dr. Hart says. “The guy with social confidence is going to be the player. He’ll be the one who’s smooth, knows how to look good and how to get a girl’s attention. That’s never going to change. You’re not going to know that he’s a player because they’re so good at hiding their flaws.”

RELY ON YOUR BEST FRIENDS Most of the time, they know you better than you know yourself. Trust their judgment. DOES HIS REPUTATION PRECEDE HIM? Chances are, if people are saying bad things about him, there’s a good reason why.
Women will eventually realize that good looks and charm aren’t enough. Deep down, all women value loyalty, humility, sincerity and respect for themselves. Let’s not forget about the nice guys that every single girl claims to be looking for. It’s really not our fault that we’re not finding them, it’s theirs, says Dr. Hart. “It all comes back to the topic of social confidence,” she says. “Nice guys are baffled when the girls are falling for the bad boys, but did they really try? Did you ask her out on a date? Do you even try to talk to her? True, some guys have more confidence than others, but you can’t just blame it on that. You have to actually try.” The cycle starts. You meet the guy, sparks fly, you find common ground and exchange numbers. You send the occasional text, flirt and party a little bit on the weekend. You hook up. After that, you don’t really communicate except on weekends. You hook up a few more times, then all communication stops. Where did you go wrong? “Women enter friends with benefits situations because they think they’re not going to end up falling for the guy, but
subconsciously, they really think they’ll change his mind and convince him he actually wants more than a fling,” Dr. Hart says. “Some girls know exactly what they’re getting themselves into, but they do it anyway. I like to compare it to shoe shopping. You’ll find that beautiful pair of shoes on clearance, but they don’t fit, they hurt and eventually you won’t wear them. When you put on a shoe that doesn’t feel good, don’t wear the damn shoe!” As much as we’d all like to, we can’t put 100 percent of the blame on the guys themselves. Blame it on testosterone. “Studies show that men with higher levels of testosterone are more socially aggressive and tend to have more sexual partners,” Dr. Hart says. “The men with lower levels are those who are more likely to be in and stay in committed romantic relationships.” Dr. Irene Levine, psychologist and freelance author specializing in relationships, says there isn’t a biological reason as to
Fe a t u r e s
why women are so prone to ending up in these situations. “It’s completely natural for women to be attracted to men who are confident, suave, good-looking and know how to talk to women,” she says. “However, these are superficial qualities that aren’t sufficient for a relationship. Women will eventually realize that good looks and charm aren’t enough. Deep down, all women value loyalty, humility, sincerity and respect for themselves.” At the end of the day, girls just need to be careful of those compromising situations. Listen to your intuition and stop when the little red flags start popping up. “When you choose to sabotage yourself and enter those situations, that’s when you’re not respecting yourself and you will eventually start to think less of yourself,” Dr. Hart says. “Listen to yourself. Love yourself. Make choices that will allow yourself to look in the mirror and love what you see.”

THE FASHION SHOW
WORDS DALLAS DAWS PHOTOS RYAN DE HAMER DESIGN BROOKE BATTERSON
This year marks the 30th anniversary of The Fashion Show, where Iowa State designers prove they belong in the cutthroat fashion world. Students are involved in every aspect from design and modeling, to planning the show from start to finish. Guest designers and judges who work in the fashion industry are invited to participate in the show.
ANNIHKA MURRAY will showcase a line inspired by kaleidoscopes. “I know that, as a designer, I tend to like materials,” Murray says. “So, a lot of times I have a tendency to pull too many materials in, and then I have a project that there’s too much going on.” With this chosen theme, Murray says she will have a lot going on, but will have the symmetry of kaledioscopes. Her main fabric was a cream canvas splattered randomly with paint she acquired from the Design building. “There’s a lot going on with this fabric, but I really held back in choosing neutral-looking tones for the rest of the fabric,” Murray says. “I knew that I was going to use this fabric, so that was a large part of the inspiration. I want this line to be wearable.” Murray says her problem does not lie in trying to come up with inspiration or designing her outfits. “Execution,” she says. “Definitely, the easier part of the line is designing, the harder part is getting the pants to fit the right way, and the velvet to fall the way I want it to.” CHELSEY TWEDT was inspired by the architecture on campus. Her looks are feminine with a menswear twist. “I just really wanted to play with textures and opacity, so I have some sheer and black fabrics,” Twedt says. “I always have a lot of black in everything I design.” Twedt says finding the fabric to match what she had in mind was the hardest part of designing her line. “You can always design something, but when it comes to picking out fabrics for it, you can’t be too picky because you will never find exactly what you want.”

JENNIFER SCHILDBERG’S inspiration came from watching The Bucket List and realizing that seeing the northern lights was on her own bucket list. Her collection consists of colorful cocktail dresses with chiffon cutouts and a silhouette mimiking the twists and turns of the northern lights. “My favorite one is a one-shoulder, and lately I’ve been obsessed with one shoulder designs,” Schildberg says. All of her cocktail dresses are carefully hand-beaded by Schildberg herself. She learned different hand-beading techniques while she studied abroad in Paris and wanted to imitate the stars behind the northern lights with swirls of beading. While beading is difficult to get right, Schildberg was not letting it slow her down. “I would definitely say the most challenging so far would be the time allocation,” she says of her project. “I’m such a planner and I sometimes don’t realize how long it actually takes me to do things well.” Reflecting on her time at Iowa State, Schildberg says, “I think that over my four years I have broadened; my sewing has gotten better. I am able to take more risks.”
KAITLYN CLEVENSTINE chose to create her line starting with the color of the fabric. “My inspiration is the relationship between nature and the human body. I naturally dye a lot of my projects with tea or vegetables like onions or carrots. I’m using all natural fibers and dying them naturally,” says Clevenstine. She has been dying her fabrics ever since she took a shibori dying class while studying abroad in Paris. Clevenstine is pushing herself to try creating things she has never done before. One of the pieces she is most excited about has a naturally dyed silk front top and an open crocheted back. While at Iowa State, Clevenstine says, “I’ve been able to try out lots of styles to find my own aesthetic.”

Selected by The Fashion Show’s design committee, fashion-savvy professionals from many backgrounds are chosen to judge the designers’ submissions. They select which ones will make it to the runway and win awards. Judging Day was held March 24; an allday event to give the judges a chance to look over the garments submitted. Szkutnicka, who was a judge last year, says she is looking forward to seeing innovation, risktaking, intelligent [and] problem-solving design. “You know the moment you see star quality – it’s intuition,” she says. Bohlen is looking forward to her first year as the show’s judge. “I was asked to judge last year and wasn’t able to so I was thrilled to be asked again,” she says. “I agreed because the Fashion Show was such a huge event in my college career and I know the time and effort that goes into the students’ work. Plus, it’ll be so refreshing to see designs that exhibit raw creativity and aren’t restricted by business needs as often happens in the commercial world.” As all of these judges, aside from Szkutnicka, are Iowa State alumni, they understand what goes into putting the show together and how designers benefit
from this student-run production. “[It’s] a great test of putting all the things you’ve learned from your classes into a final project,” Hillyard-Driscoll says. “It gives you a taste of the real working world. [From] working under a deadline, getting positive and/or negative feedback and producing a finished product from start to finish.” When choosing their awards, the guest judges will be taking details and overall concepts of each design into consideration. “I will be paying attention to a collection’s trend relevance, but also will be noticing good construction and interesting fabric selections,” Hall says. “This is key in our industry, as no matter how great or strong the idea is, if it doesn’t look appealing and/or well made, it probably won’t sell.” By doing this, designers will have a chance to compete with one another and the audience will see the quality work necessary to get into the show. In addition to judges fresh from the fashion industry, designers are asked to participate in the show. Todd Snyder has agreed to be this year’s guest designer for the Fashion Show and will showcase his designs along with the student designs. Snyder, who was also the guest designer for the 2008 show, is an Iowa State alumnus who
was nominated for the Council of Fashion Designers of America Swarovski Award for Menswear this year. Once the creative director and vice president for J.Crew, Snyder now has a successful self-named menswear brand. Students taking the Fashion Show class have put together a show that could stand next to those of top designers. Committees have been in charge of selecting and training models, organizing fit nights and judging day, selecting the theme of the show, creating the set, fundraising and organizing alumni and incoming student events. The coordination of all these committees drives the success of the show. For 30 years, Iowa State students have proven that you don’t have to live on the coast to be fashionable.

Mocha: 1 ¾ cup strong coffee 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk 1 tsp. cocoa powder Evenly distribute the white mixture among the cups. Freeze for 1-2 hours until solid.

Wisk milk and pudding mix together. Microwave six minutes, stirring every two. Cover with plastic wrap, allowing the plastic to sit directly on top of the pudding so a film does not form. Cool in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Stir in marshmallow crème. Pour half the pudding into the cups. Drop a layer of marshmallows on top of the pudding. Freeze for three hours. Top with the rest of the pudding. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top. Freeze. Lifestyle
Mix fruit together in a bowl. Distribute evenly among cups. Pour enough juice into each cup to cover the fruit. Freeze. Each of these recipes makes six popsicles. You’ll need 7-ounce paper or plastic cups and popsicle sticks and for the best results, freeze them overnight.

DIY: PIN IT
Carefully Crafted Bulletin Board After a few simple steps this do-it-yourself bulletin board will be the perfect place to hang pictures or share notes and recipes with roommates. Using spray paint, a ceiling tile and fabric of your choice, you can transform an ugly picture frame into a cute, useful spot to pin your best photos or ideas.
1. Remove the picture from its frame. 2. Cover the frame with a few coats of spray paint. 3. While allowing the paint to dry, use the cover button kit, found at Hobby Lobby, to create your own pushpins following the directions on the back of the kitâ€™s package. 4. Glue a washer to the back of each button. Then, glue a tack to the washer. The washer will raise the tack to be even with the button sides.
6. Lay the ceiling tile on the fabric to measure the correct amount needed to fit the tile. 7. Staple the fabric to the ceiling tile starting with corners and working your way around. Staple opposite sides each time to avoid wrinkles. 8. Place the fabric-covered tile into the frame using glue, duct tape, or nails. 9. Use the pushpins made earlier to hang pictures or notes, and enjoy! www .thesaloninames .com | 515.232.2235
