when I leave off a letter on someone’s name, or mess up a fashion credit, or mislabel a creative team member, please understand it is not intentional. It is a mistake. It is something that keeps me up until 2:00 in the morning. So, if you see a mistake, please let me know; however, please be kind, you never know what someone else is going through. On a positive note, I had such an awesome team for this issue! Photographing dancers is such a humbling experience for someone like me who sometimes has trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time. The way their bodies move with grace and power was so much fun to watch and photograph. To top it off they were sisters. To see that bond just reminds me of the bond between me and my sister.

Meet Model Natalie Neff How did you get started modeling? Tell us about yourself. When I was 14, I was in a pretty bad car accident that did some damage to my face and also left me with some self-confidence problems. Even though other people couldn’t see a difference, after it was fixed, I still felt different. Growing up since then, I realized that it isn’t any fun living life constantly worried about your appearance or wanting to fit in with the people around you because being different is an amazing thing. I started in modeling all because one day at the mall, I was scouted by Barbizon and went on to be in a modeling competition on a cruise ship which is also how I ended up meeting the agency I’m now signed with. I’ve only been modeling for about 5 months now and it’s still so weird to think of myself as a model but I’m in love with it for sure. I just want to be a good role model to people that have been through tough times because I can definitely relate and I can honestly say that life gets better when you start living your life for yourself and not for everyone else. Three adjectives to describe yourself. Quirky, Dreamer, Passionate What do you enjoy the most about modeling? I love being able to become a photographers vision as an art piece and being able to transform into different people in photos because it reminds me of playing dress up as a little girl. What do you not enjoy about modeling? I honestly can’t say I dislike anything about it. I haven’t been modeling for very long but everyone I’ve come in contact with has been amazing and I’m happy with every part of it so far. Favorite color? Lime Green
Favorite food? Sushi What designer would you love to model/walk for? Why? For Love And Lemons because their clothes are edgy and elegant at the same time. What photographer would you love to shoot with? Why? Emily Soto, because I love her edgy style of photography and I’m obsessed with the vintage editorial shoots she has done. Speak it into existence, where do you see yourself in 5 years? I see myself in my own home in New Orleans, Louisiana hopefully with my same 3 fur babies. I’ll have reached one of my biggest goals which is to be a successful model as well as having my real estate license. I’ll definitely be more experienced than I am now, but still have so much to see and learn. Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? I would love to be able to visit Venice, Italy.
What is your theme song? “Kill Em With Kindness” –Selena Gomez What do you do when you are not modeling? Relax at home with my fur babies, finding cool places to take photos with my friends, or taking my family or boyfriend on the hunt for some good sushi spots. Favorite movie? Titanic Favorite actor/actress? Jennifer Lawrence Your idea of “happiness” and/or your idea of “misery”? My idea of happiness is to be surrounded by people who love you for who you are, no matter how awkward I might be. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? How to make my own clothes. Guilty Pleasure? Laughing at my dogs eating peanut butter.
Your zodiac sign? Virgo
Last show you binge-watched? 13 Reasons Why
Favorite superhero? Why? Spiderman, because I can relate with his awesome sarcasm.
Last book you read? More of a poem, but “The Iliad and the Odyssey” by Homer
What person, living or dead, do you admire the most? Why? My Grandma because she was a hard working woman who was also very graceful and loving, I hope I can be as amazing of a woman as her one day.
Anything else you want the readers to know about you? Being the awkward and quirky person I was meant to be was the best thing that I ever let myself do because that has led me to where I am and to the amazing people I’ve met along the way. The biggest piece of advice I can offer is to be who you truly are because everything else will fall into place.
What’s your favorite quote? “She wore her scars as her best attire. A stunning dress made of hellfire” –Daniel Saint What is your favorite body part? Arms

Meet Hair Stylist Kanika Styles How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. Hair has always been a passion of mine. It’s been an interest since I was a small child. Any time anyone would let me play in their hair, I took advantage of the opportunity. I took a little detour from my dream and obtained a BS in Chemistry, and worked in the Biopharmaceutical industry. I found myself unfulfilled and realized that I had been running from my passion. As soon as my schedule and finances permitted, I attended cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell the School and have been doing what I love ever since! Three adjectives to describe yourself. Creative and free-spirited Quiet Goofy – in a good way Hair Artist or Hair Stylist? Why? I can appreciate both of these titles. They’re interchangeable, in my opinion. What do you enjoy the most about being a Hair Artist/ Stylist? I had a client cry in my chair and tell me that I made her feel beautiful, and that she hadn’t felt that way in a very long time. I love being able to make someone feel good about themselves. I equally love being challenged to create the unconventional. There’s nothing like taking a blank canvas and constructing art. What do you not enjoy about being a Hair Artist/Stylist? Right now, only that I’m not able to do it full time. Because it is my passion, I love doing it; however.
Your zodiac sign? Pisces What zodiac sign do you get along with the most? I’m a Pisces…we get along with everyone! Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? There are so many places on my list to visit. So hard to choose one!! But I would love to go to the Maldives and stay in one of the underwater hotels. What hair trend do you love? I love the resurgence of the incorporation of braids in hairstyles. What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received? I think the best gifts I’ve given were for Christmas a few years ago. I dabble in jewelry making, and my aunt gave me a bunch of my late grandmother’s jewelry that she came across while cleaning out her old bedroom. I made jewelry for everyone for Christmas, incorporating pieces from my grandmother’s old jewelry, so that everyone would have a piece of her with them when they wear it. Favorite movie? Coming to America Favorite actor/actress? Don Cheadle Last show you binge-watched? Sneaky Pete and Game of Thrones. I’m finally caught up! I CANNOT wait for the next season!
Favorite color? Green/teal Favorite food/drink? Pizza Speak it into existence, where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years, I will be freelancing bicoastal, with a business based in the Washington, DC area. What is your idea of perfect happiness? Freedom to do what I please, when and where I please, and being surrounded by people I love.
