It takes a special person to land a NYLON cover, and it takes an extremely special one to appear on four of them over the course of the magazine’s history. Smart, cool, and independent, Sienna Miller is a quintessential NYLON girl, and she’s the perfect choice for our 15th anniversary issue. Over the past year, we’ve done a lot of looking back. Now that our birthday has finally arrived, I’m only thinking about the future. We’ve accrued experience and wisdom—and a lot of great records and clothes—but we have so much ahead of us. So what will the next decade and a half of NYLON look like? A few predictions... marvin scott jarrett editor-in-chief

dear nylon, Your magazine is everything to me. Being a junior in high school is pretty tough, from the college hunt to studying for the SATs to worrying about my future. Recently I’ve discovered my love of, and talent for, writing, and every time I read your magazine I feel a glimmer of hope and all of the stress vanishes. Being a writer can be hard, but NYLON inspires me to believe that one day I can make it happen for myself. You’ve given a new sense of confidence to this small-town Jersey girl who never quite fit in. Thank you! JULIJA PAULIUS VIA EMAIL

—BEHIND THE SCENES

most wanted To celebrate NYLON’s 15th anniversary, nothing less than the perfect cover subject would suffice. The honor went to proverbial NYLON girl Sienna Miller— effortlessly cool, with style for days and a wry sense of humor. Stylist Daniela Jung admits that when it came time to pull together outfits for the shoot, her job was very easy. “Sienna’s personal look is low-key and a bit rock ’n’ roll, so I just went with that,” says Jung. Those sartorial sensibilities meant Miller gravitated toward Miu Miu laceup boots, a studded Burberry leather jacket, and a sequined Louis Vuitton top. “She knows and loves fashion, so she played different personalities for each outfit,” says

Jung. Allowing the clothing to take center stage, makeup artist Kate Lee let Miller’s inherent gorgeousness shine through, simply playing up her brows, then adding a bit of blush and mascara. A finishing touch of balm on her lids, lips, and cheeks imparted a bit of shine. Hairstylist Jenny Cho decided on an equally low-key look for Miller’s locks. “I was inspired by the free-spirited Calvin Klein ads of the ’90s,” says Cho, who applied thickening mousse to Miller’s naturally wavy strands, rough-dried them, then formed random loose waves with a curling iron. To get definition, she ran a few drops of styling oil through her ends and finished with a blast of dry shampoo.

big leap

When most people venture abroad, they fly home with photos and trinkets in tow. When Carolina Herrera graces a foreign land, the designer returns to New York with a novel idea for a collection. "I'm always inspired by the fashion and style of the people that live in the cities and places I visit," she explains. Behold the CH Carolina Herrera Japan collection, a range of handbags named after two of her favorite cities. The Tokyo, an all-purpose, open-top tote, and the Osaka, a horizontal, zippered style, have clean lines, contrasting colors, and minimal hardware; The origami element is evident. "The women in Japan are glamorous, chic, and have the same energy and excitement about fashion and design that I do," says Herrera. Suffice it to say, that's a lot of energy and excitement. AB carolinaherrera.com

The craze for innovation in the denim realm only gets crazier, and Big Star Jeans is amping up its already considerable offerings by treating its denim with ultrahigh-tech methods. This season, the brand debuts a slew of new styles that feature distressing, whiskering, and even prints that have been created by lasers. Lasers! This means fewer harsh chemicals are used in the distressing process, and it also means a longer life span for your blues, guaranteeing that any fading on your favorite jeans will be entirely intentional. ASHLEY BAKER bigstarusa.com

what a trip The debut collection of Julia Korol, a graduate of Central St. Martins in London, is already making waves in sartorial circuits worldwide. The line includes a dynamic array of structured dresses and skirts (some pieces are reversible) mashed together on fabrics including chiffon, organza, and sheepskin. Her inspiration? The synergy between “natural complexities” and “manmade architecture,” Cubism, and kaleidoscopes, which translate into graphic patterns, paneling, layering, and intricate wrap details. The prints are set against white backgrounds and bleed with pastel greens, blues, pinks, and purples. Mood rings, much? JADE TAYLOR juliakorol.co.uk

elec tric slid e It’s no secret that fashion and technology are besties: If you’ve attended a fashion show recently, you know all too well that as soon as the lights dim before the models take to the runway, what’s left in the darkness is a sea of brightly lit smartphone screens with the camera app open and ready to snap the first look that manifests (to be immediately Instagrammed afterwards, obvi). Unsurprisingly, technology has penetrated the designers’ collections themselves—so I flew 3,500 miles from New York City to London to check out the savviest sartorial offerings myself. Say cheerio to Fyodor

match point Topshop-ers, rejoice! The British retail giant that specializes in selling the coolest garb out there has just upped the fashion ante by collabing with Adidas on a 20-piece collection ($40-$150). Practical for both the gym and the street, the range includes classics like Adidas’ 3-Stripe track pants along with comfy sweatshirts, tanks, shoes, and tees decked out in pastels, neons, and floralprint logos. “We wanted to bring some femininity to the range and make the collection fit with all your fashion staples,” muses Kate Phelan, creative director at Topshop. “The beauty is in how you combine it.” On your mark, get set, go!

Golan, a new designer duo that partnered with Nokia to create the world’s first interactive skirt crafted out of 80 different Nokia Lumia 1520 tablets (layered over one another to mimic fabric), which premiered during London Fashion Week. Model favorite/girl crush Chloë Nørgaard rocked the skirt down the runway as scores of quintessential NYLON fashion and beauty stories illuminated the tablets—in celebration of our 15th anniversary— forming a digital collage of everything awesome. And although I was sad to leave the U.K., I was grateful I had my new tricked-out Nokia tablet to keep me company on the flight back home so I could take a few selfies (and finish the last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians).

Visvim is too popular to be dubbed a "cult favorite" brand, but the fact remains that its fans, mostly die-hards, revere its founder Hiroki Nakamura almost religiously. For the past 14 years, those devotees have been mostly male. No longer—women's offerings have finally arrived. WMV, as it's known, is designed by Nakamura and his wife, Kelsi, and it incorporates the elaborate sense of engineering that has made Visvim such a draw to stores like Dover Street Market. "The men's product is created with the intention of lasting a long time and growing with each and every consumer," explains Hiroki. "Every product will take on a character of its own depending on the person and their lifestyle. I thought it would be interesting and refreshing to introduce this concept toward product for women as well." WMV includes dresses, outerwear, footwear, tops, and accessories, among other pieces, and the spring '14 collection is full of the Nakamuras' riffs on patchwork quilting. "It's so unique, depending on the person who is quilting," explains Hiroki. "Each piece has the ability to tell a different story." AB shop.visvim.tv

Team Green gains more momentum this spring thanks to H&M’s Conscious and Conscious Exclusive collections. The latest offerings are made from sustainable materials—think recycled cotton and hemp—and include labeling that offers tips on caring for clothes in a more environmentally sound way. (Moving forward, H&M will include similar tags in all its garments.) The Ever Manifesto, an organization focused on an earth-friendly fashion future, consulted on the design of the Exclusive items, which are dramatic and draped, with bohemian and flamenco vibes. The Conscious Collection pieces draw inspiration from the desert, featuring loose, draped silhouettes. So it’s time to take up the cause, and look good doing it. LISA MISCHIANTI hm.com

The mercury has finally deigned to surpass 50 degees, and Elle Sasson’s very first collection is full of everything we want to wear right this minute. Inspired by palm trees, Sasson’s whimsical debut is full of silk dresses, crop tops, and pleated skirts. The designer, who splits her time between New York and Hong Kong, favors beadwork, embellishment, and crafty little details. “Every piece has a flirty element,” she explains. “I wanted the feeling to be fun.” LAUREN OLSEN ellesasson.com

The cool kid sister of Kate Spade New York, Kate Spade Saturday launched last spring in Japan and was initially only available online in the United States. But with the recent opening of locations in Los Angeles and Houston, as well as a pop-up shop and temporary 24-hour touch-screen window shops in Manhattan, the brand brought its innovative brickand-mortar retail experience to America. Now Kate Spade Saturday has debuted a permanent store in NYC's SoHo district that may be its best one yet. In addition to apparel, shoes, bags,

jewelry, tech accessories, and lifestyle products, this location will be the first with an extensive home goods section. The shop will also include special features for gadget-loving girls, like a phone-charging station, but will keep things intimate and personal with mood music from a vintage record player and a customization station for the signature Kate Spade Saturday Weekender Bag. New Saturday stores will open in Boston and Hawaii this spring. LM 152 spring street, new york, ny 10012

major score Eleven Paris, the Parisian label that excels at nailing that certain je ne sais quoi style the French are famous for, just debuted a spring ’14 campaign starring Kate Moss. And is there anything Kate Moss-related that doesn’t interest us? (Um, no.) Ms. Moss also inspired a capsule collection by the brand featuring a shirt inspired by its Back Number series (quirky T-shirts with famous last names and athletic-jersey-style digits emblazoned on the back), which naturally is our new Tee of the Month. Say bonjour to the Eleven Paris Kate Moss Back Number shirt ($62, available exclusively at bloomingdales.com and select Bloomingdale’s stores), printed with the British flag and stamped with MOSS and her birth year (’74). Team Kate forever. JADE TAYLOR elevenparis.com

Miranda Priestly, Meryl Streep’s iconic character in The Devil Wears Prada, once sarcastically snarled, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” And it’s not hard to understand why all the sassy fashionistas who watched the movie giggled along with her: You r average floral-printed gar ment can often lean toward the predictable side of the season’s spectrum. On the other end, however, are the floral motifs that manage to evoke real beauty and emotion, much like the blossoms on these Victoria n Floral denim skinnies from 7 For All Mankind ($198) , inspired by French garden s and the serene European

countryside. Featu ring a color palette comp osed of pastels and ne utrals and sporadically pla , ced bunches of flowe rs, the ankle-length, mid-r ise balances the tricky pant act of being both fem inine and bold. Basicall y, it’s an awesome altern ati to wearing New Or ve de classic Power, Co r’s rruption & Lies album cove r (which famously reps pa inter Henri Fantin-Lato ur’s blooming artwork) on legs.

from onewoman shows to prime time, zoe lister-jones is everywhere she wants to be. by kate williams Zoe Lister-Jones has been thinking long and hard about Beyoncé. “If I looked like Beyoncé, I’d probably be wearing a thong right now,” she muses, doing her best to make a dent in a heaping plate of steamed greens at Hugo’s, an organic restaurant in Los Angeles. Bey’s booty is just one of the things on her mind: The actress also pontificates on food politics, gender dynamics, Instagram addiction, and how “everyone is hypercommunicative and can’t get through a moment without texting someone, ‘I farted.’”

Beyoncé. Knowles.

A native of Brooklyn, the writer and actress attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, where she met her husband, Daryl Wein. Her first major project was a one-woman show called Codependence Is a Four Letter Word, and she co-wrote and starred in Breaking Upwards, an autobiographical film about her open relationship with Wein that premiered at SXSW in 2009. Lister-Jones and Wein moved to Los Angeles full-time two years ago, when she landed a role in the NBC show Whitney. Multicamera sitcoms might seem an unlikely home for an actress with serious training and indie roots, but then ListerJones never thought she’d be an Angeleno, either. “On a daily basis, I’m like, ‘Who am I becoming? Do I like this person? I think I do.’” She looks down at her lunch and sighs. “There are so many greens on my plate. I’m overwhelmed. This is the most L.A. plate ever.”

Lister-Jones’s new projects require a bit of making out with strangers, and she admits that she’s kind of excited about that prospect. On Friends With Better Lives, an ensemble CBS sitcom that also stars Kevin Connolly, James Van Der Beek, Majandra Delfino, and Brooklyn Decker, Lister-Jones plays Kate, the last single woman standing within her social circle. “She’s a foul-mouthed bitch, and she’s really on the prowl—so I get to fakebone a bunch of dudes every episode,” says Lister-Jones. “And I’m really a people pleaser, so it’s nice to play a character who says whatever she wants.”

Say what you will about my style, but the word bombshell has not often been used to describe it. I mean, don’t get me wrong: I do love a good Hervé Léger moment, but the overt sexiness that this particular word conjures up is not very me, at least in a fashion sense. My beauty regimen, however, is more open to trying out new looks. So I’ve been paying particular attention to CoverGirl’s new Bombshell collection, which is inspired by starlets and models and currently fronted by undisputed sex symbol Sofia Vergara. As a true beauty addict, I have a meticulously edited trove of staples that I can’t live without, and mascara is at the top of that list. I’m always looking for the latest, greatest formulation, which is why when CoverGirl


—FACTORY GIRL

invited me to its factory in Hunt Valley, Maryland, to check out the brand’s new Bombshell Volume mascara, I immediately booked a train ticket. And a photographer. As you might expect from your globe-trotting Factory Girl, this is not my first trip to this facility—I was here in 2008 to learn the ins and outs of TruBlend Liquid makeup. Upon arrival, I am greeted once again by Dr. Sarah Vickery, principal scientist for CoverGirl Cosmetics, and out come those charming accessories that I know so well—a hairnet, goggles, and shoe covers. Hot. For the record, a hairnet is about as far away from bombshell as you can get, but in the interest of my lashes—and your entertainment—I’m willing to go there.

I head into the factory and the CoverGirl team takes me through the assembly line, where very sophisticated robots are performing the precise steps to put together a tube. First, the Bombshell Volume by LashBlast formulation is mixed and cooled, then the tubing elements are assembled. The tubes are filled, the wands are attached and the pieces are “carded” for the shelf.

So what makes this the baddest mascara in town? Well, according to the CoverGirl scientists, it’s all in the “wet lash” look, which makes lashes look both ultra-black and separated and originated on the runways. It’s a two-step process: First, apply the Extreme Volume base coat. And then apply another coat. And maybe another. I stopped at five, and my lashes were still separated, and not the least bit dry or clumpy. Next, add the Dark, Intensifying Topcoat to seal in the mascara. It comes in four shades—one of which is “very black,” which, I guess, is the new black. The idea for the two-step process was inspired by a beauty phenomenon known as “cocktailing,” in which die-hard product fanatics mix and match products all in the hopes of achieving the most Twiggy-esque lashes possible. Sometimes, it works; often, it doesn’t. Bombshell Volume is

all about removing the guesswork and achieving the ultimate result each time. Basically, this is partygirl mascara, and it took my lashes to the next level. It’s time to make a tube of my own. Dr. Vickery and her team have the precise quantities of ingredients in small glass jars, so I can create the base coat myself in a special lab mixer. Alas, the top-secret topcoat formulation is too, well, topsecret, even for Factory Girl. Now that I’ve made it, naturally, I must test it. I’m willing to subject myself to an ultra-zoom camera, where my lashes were photographed before and after the application. You know when you go to the optometrist and perch your chin on a piece of plastic while a technician takes a photo of your eyeball? It was kind of like that. Again,

not very sexy, but this Factory Girling is not all glitz and glamour. It’s been a lash-tastic day, and even though I look like I’m ready for the hottest club in Baltimore—whatever that may be—I’ve got to make my train back to New York. I settle into my seat and break out the iPad—I’m bingeing on Friday Night Lights these days. Heaven. A few minutes into an episode, my neighbor asks what I’m watching, and it turns out that he was interested because he wrote the book that inspired the show! Buzz Bissinger, it was a pleasure—and luckily, I know my makeup looked great.

While technology is a beautiful thing, there’s something to be said for the tried-and-true when it comes to skincare. “Ingredients that had been used by ancient cultures are still being recommended by dermatologists today,” says Dr. Doris Day, founder of Day Dermatology and Aesthetics. There are loads of earthbound ingredients that can do wondrous things for your skin, but Dr. Day has a few favorites. If you tend to be on the dry side, reach for a cream containing the Pharaoh’s favorite remedy—oats. “Its ability to absorb moisture means it can help maintain skin’s

hydration levels,” says Dr. Day. On the other end of the spectrum: rice protein, which absorbs excess oil quickly and continuously. If you’re also plagued with pimples, naturally derived salicylic acid in the form of wintergreen and willow bark extract can help clear them up. Calm irritable skin with feverfew or chamomile, both of which have anti-inflammatory and anti-redness properties. For a complexion that’s lost its luster, look for products containing soy, which has been used for ages in traditional Chinese medicine to reduce discoloration. Fixing your skin, it seems, is often a matter of getting in touch with Mother Nature.

SWEPT AWAY Makeup is only as good as the tools with which it's applied. While using your fingers can do a passable job, quality implements will make the most of pricey products. One man who understands this better than most is Francois Nars, and so he contributed his knowledge, plus that of his trusted coterie of makeup artists, to a new and improved 16-piece collection of brushes, replacing the wear-and-tear-prone wooden handles with durable molded acrylic ones, tweaking the bristle quality and shape, and contracting designer Fabien Baron to whip up a sleek matte black and red design.

Check out past Proenza Schouler runway shows and you’ll notice a common theme: bare-faced models. Despite an obvious affinity for the no-makeup makeup look, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have stepped out of their comfort zone to collaborate with M.A.C on a range that speaks to the cosmetic-loving masses. “We thought it would be cool to put things out there that the Proenza woman could wear,” says Hernandez. “We wanted to up the ante and do something a bit different than what we do for our shows.” As the duo’s designs often achieve the perfect balance of uptown polish and downtown cool, it’s fitting that the makeup offers the beauty equivalent (bold lips, flushed cheeks, and dark-rimmed eyes). “We didn’t want it to be too vixeny or vampy, but something breezy and cooler,” explains McCollough. That attitude extends to bright ombré packaging, which echoes the label’s popular tiedyed T-shirts and its surf-themed spring '14 collection. “There’s a beachy, summery quality to it,” adds McCollough. Here’s to a warming trend. KATIE DICKENS m.a.c

BOOK OF SECRETS

We've all been there: whipping up black lip gloss by mixing crushed eye shadow and petroleum jelly, raiding the fridge for homemade face mask supplies, and huddling over a bathroom sink with a jar of pink hair dye in hand. Where there's a will, there's a DIY way, and with this motto in mind, London hair and makeup artist Lou Teasdale, the mastermind behind One Direction's 'dos, has compiled 25 "alternative beauty looks" into a book fittingly dubbed The Craft: DIY Hair and Beauty. The scrapbook-like masterpiece is a flurry of hand-drawn illustrations (all by former NYLON staffer Faran Krentcil), ingenious style tips, and fun projects. Under the how-to hair category, Teasdale

explains edgy ideas like "The New Dreadlock," "Rainbow Recipes," and "Grunge Hair," while makeup looks include "The Face Chizzle," "Non-Tranny Lashes," and "A Modern Lip," a robin's egg blue hue. Teasdale challenges the beauty status quo in imaginative ways, appealing to those who prefer to experiment with their look. Other bonus features include suggestions for kick-ass nail art, sick tattoos, and advice for breaking into the beauty industry, all written with a selfempowered riot grrrl attitude.

TH ROW SH AD E "Aside from my tattoos, hair, and nail art, my everyday look is pretty simple. But I like to have fun with my hair color. I did a short blonde faux-hawk for a minute, then I was platinum with green in it a couple of years ago, and now it's this silvery lavender color. I'd like to go pinker soon."

"I've worked wi th ck one for two years, so it was cool that the debut of "Kiss It" fits in perfectly with this collaboration. Th e lip color I created repres ents the song. It's classy, but still kind of sexy and cool. In the song, I'm pretty much te lling people to kiss my ass, so I needed a shad e that's equally spunky."

SHORT CUT "I've basically had this pixie cut since high school. It's super easy. I like it dirty, so I don't wash it every day and just use this spray wax to get the texture right."

Devin Star Tailes, a.k.a. Dev, rocks a look that ’s as hard to categorize as her music—a dancey hybrid of electro, hip-hop, and pop. For one, the self-proclaimed tomboy prefers jeans and tees, but won’t leave home without a generous swipe of eyeliner. And yes, she has a cropped ’do, but prefers her strands candy-colored. So it's fitting that Dev hooked up with ck one, a brand that offers cosmetics in sleek, unisex packaging. Now, she’s thrown her hat into the makeupmaking ring with a lipstick anointed “Kiss It” after her new single by the same name. On a break from shooting the video for said song, Dev sat down to discuss her beauty muse, go-to products, and her ever-evolving hair color.

We’re still a month away from the flowers that are supposed to be our prize for tolerating April’s constant precipitation. But why wait out the bare trees and brown grass when you can wear bright blooms on your fingertips right now? We’re not talking about affixing daisy stickers to your nails, either. Ciaté’s latest offering includes real dried and pressed blossoms in its latest manicure kit. Pastel pink or blue polish provides the perfect backdrop for the tiny red, blue, and purple flowers, giving new meaning to the term green thumb. ciaté flower manicure, $25, sephora.com

Charcoal may not be the first material that comes to mind as the answer to your complexion-clearing prayers—perhaps because of its mess-making qualities while grilling meats or its sooty nature—but those little chunks of scorched wood rock at coaxing out dirt and other nasty stuff. For this reason, its presence in Bioré’s new mask is a very good thing. If your pores happen to need detoxifying, this self-heating treatment will do the job in a hot minute. bioré skincare self heating one minute mask, $8, drugstore.com

“Sprang break fo’ever!” Despite degenerate Alien’s proclamation in Spring Breakers, for most students, that annual rite of passage happens around April (and doesn’t involve illicit activities). But one part of the movie that rings true is a dress code that calls for bikinis and not much else. If your body isn’t ready for public viewing thanks to a particularly frigid winter, Jergens has something for you. It’s taken the

magic of BB cream—that skin-perfecting wonder— and translated it into a body lotion. It does everything the face version does, including hydrate, brighten, and minimize imperfections. Even if you won’t be escaping to a tropical destination anytime soon, bare legs season can’t be too far away. Right? jergens bb body perfecting skin cream, $13, drugstore.com

The newest face of Chanel’s Nº 5 campaign is late bombshell Marilyn Monroe, who once scandalously proclaimed that in lieu of pajamas, she wore the classic fragrance to bed. It no doubt drove countless 1950s women to do the same. And while the icon is no longer with us— and the idea of nocturnal scent application seems a bit silly—Nº 5 has thrived (one bottle is sold every 30 seconds). If you’re one of its many superfans, you probably possess all iterations of the stuff (bath soap, shower gel, body cream, etc.). Well, here’s a new one for you: hair mist. A few spritzes are all you need to be best-tressed, no matter the time of day. chanel nº5 hair mist, $65, chanel.com

If you’re like me, your last chemistry lesson came courtesy of Walter White. So here’s a little periodic table factoid you might not know: Copper, while good for wiring, is hell on your hair. The element is deposited onto tresses every time you shampoo, building up over time and leaving hair weak and prone to breakage. But you can wash that mineral right out of your hair—or at least counteract it—with Pantene’s Damage Detox line. The four-part range is a comprehensive formula for healthy hair. pantene pro-v damage detox collection, $4-$5, drugstore.com

and hands the microphone to another organizer. Miller folds back into the crowd, laughing and chatting warmly, as if among old friends at a birthday party. Seeing the actress in this informal scene has a slightly surreal effect, at first. But after spending the past two days in her midst, I realize the warmth and informality of the scene shouldn’t be surprising. It is, in fact, distinctly Sienna Miller.

we first meet at The Standard Hotel’s 24/7 Restaurant in West Hollywood, which is mostly empty at 11 a.m., the late morning sun streaming past retro beaded blinds, flooding the long, narrow space with light. When Miller enters, the light catches the new rosy-orange shade of her hair before she slides into a corner booth just out of the sun’s range. After we say our hellos, conversation quickly transitions, as it does, into analysis of her new hair color. “I’m just not sure about these,” she offers, in her delicate English lilt, pointing to her eyebrows, which have been dyed to match. “Normally, I’m blonde with black eyebrows!” Other than that, Miller looks as Sienna-esque as ever, both casual and polished in a thin, navy-striped top with a long, swooshy cream-colored skirt and platforms. (In a few weeks, her hair will be back to its signature shade of blonde.) Occasionally, she flashes her approachable smile, revealing the naturally pretty teeth of a head cheerleader, rather than the glow-inthe-dark Chiclets favored by many movie stars. Miller, who primarily lives in England, is in Los Angeles to take meetings for her second wave of projects following the year she spent away from acting due to the birth of her daughter, Marlowe. (Marlowe’s father is Miller’s fiancé, the actor Tom Sturridge.) A tidier narrative would point to the birth of Marlowe as Miller’s moment of refocusing her acting career, but the truth is, when she was only a few months pregnant, she filmed The Girl, in which she brilliantly portrayed real-life Hitchcock muse Tippi Hedren, earning the actress her first major American award nomination—a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV movie or miniseries. But according to Miller, while it may not be the exact beginning of a change in tune, the year she spent away from the industry did serve a purpose. “In the past I was always drawn to the roles, and was often really exploring characters, but then the final result was

not what it was supposed to be,” she explains. “My modus operandi after I had the baby was to work with great people, no matter the capacity, even if I had a smaller part.” She fills her water glass from a bottle of Pellegrino and continues: “I feel far more focused now than I ever have.” This year will bring several major opportunities to show what she can do. In Foxcatcher, directed by Moneyball and Capote’s Bennett Miller and based on a true story, she plays Nancy Schultz, the wife of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), who was killed by paranoidschizophrenic John du Pont (Steve Carell). From there, roles in the comedy Business or Pleasure and gritty indie

Mississippi Grind (co-starring Ryan Reynolds) will follow. Most recently, Miller was cast as the lead in Whit Stillman’s Jane Austen adaptation, Love and Friendship (alongside Chloë Sevigny). Booking these projects happened fairly organically, according to the actress. “It’s all very trend-driven. It’s pathetic,” she says with an amused scoff. “The fact that I’m in Bennett’s film makes people think, ‘Oh, well, maybe she’s a serious actress.’ And actually it’s that Bennett’s a serious enough director to overlook any sort of perception. You’d be amazed at the lack of vision that some really creative people have.” She takes a sip of her water then adopts a slightly dopey voice: “‘Well, she’s kind of fashionable,

so she can play the fashion part,’” she says, adding, “I’ll shave my head and be whatever you want me to be! That’s the job of an actor.” Then, because sarcasm doesn’t suit her for long, she erupts into laughter. “I’m rambling!” she says. “I’ve had, like, five cups of coffee today.” Rambling or not, there is an obvious truth there. “I’ve gotten to a point where I feel much more confident in myself and my ability. If you start to feel that, inevitably, it will affect your work and your perception,” says Miller. “But ‘perception’ is a minefield. I’ve never been very good at being how you’re supposed to be, and not being who I am—which is a very, very open person.” She laughs. “A worryingly open person to be navigating any kind of celebrity.” Miller quietly came back to work months ago, but with those films not yet out, the press had yet to take note of her return. That is, until she was called to testify as one of the victims of a phone-hacking scandal dating back to 2005, when reporters for the Rupert Murdoch-owned News of the World allegedly illegally intercepted voice mails of actors, including those of Miller, Jude Law, and Daniel Craig. Miller, of course,

became famous first for being Jude Law’s girlfriend, after the two met on the set of 2004’s Alfie. Ironically, a trial meant to exact justice for an invasion of privacy exposed its victims yet again with revelations brought about during questioning. (Within minutes of her testimony, rumors began to swirl about an affair between Miller and Daniel Craig.) “I feel very let down by that system, but there is a more important thing going on: this conversation about hacking people’s phones and privacy. I’m really proud of the things that I’ve done standing up for myself in that way,” she says. “But it doesn’t make it easy that suddenly Jude and I are back on the cover of every newspaper in London.”

At the same time that Miller was becoming known for her relationship, the public became transfixed by her innate sense of style, resulting in a flurry of major fashion magazine covers and controversial comparisons to that other stylish Brit, Kate Moss. So while ostensible star-making turns, like the role of Edie Sedgwick in 2006’s Factory Girl and then as Baroness in the G.I. Joe action franchise, mostly fizzled, public interest in Miller only grew. And it’s easy to see why. What other actress would appear in a magazine licking her own Dr. Martens boot, as Miller did in her first NYLON feature? “My go-to [during shoots] is to do something ridiculous,” she says. “I also get bored quite easily. I’m not very good at the selfie face. I can do it for, like, three seconds and then I crack up.” Miller has smartly diffused tension in her professional life by assembling an inner circle of people she trusts. Her longtime publicist, Tori Cook, for example, is her best friend from high school (she is Cook’s only client), and Miller co-founded the clothing line Twenty8Twelve with her sister, Savannah. “For me, it’s totally important,” she says. “I love these women, so I want to be around them all the time.” As for Twenty8Twelve, the sisters stepped down from the label in


114 2012, but it was for lack of time, not lack of interest. “We were designing a really big collection in the end,” says Miller. “I think maybe I’d be more fulfilled being a couturier or something, or doing 10 amazing pieces a season.” Miller’s original choices are precisely why she stands apart from the endless rotation of It Girl actresses, whose offscreen personalities often seem crafted from the findings of a focus group. Now, she aims to save this fearlessness for her work. “There is this aspect of my personality: the harder it is, the more fulfilling it is. If I go to work and have to sob all day and kill myself thinking about every sad thing that’s ever happened, I’ll get home feeling like I’ve flexed some sort of muscle,” she says. “Then I’ll analyze it and be like, ‘You’re really twisted.’” She laughs. “It’s cathartic, it is!” Her collaborators on Foxcatcher speak to her growth. “She was able to take on a vocal quality, an accent, a physicality, and the inner life of her character, which is really what separates the women from the girls. She was right there–amazingly, beautifully,” says Ruffalo, of her depiction of Nancy, a blue-collar Midwesterner. He also admired her ability to multitask. “We’d be sitting in the makeup trailer, and she’d be with little Marlowe, and I’d just think, ‘Look at this amazing carnival life that you live,’” he adds with a chuckle. Channing Tatum, who previously worked with Miller on G.I. Joe, co-stars as Mark Schultz, Dave’s brother. “I hadn’t seen Sienna since she became a mother. It was so beautiful seeing her play that role,” he says. “She has always been a very heartfelt, soulful person, but somehow, I think becoming a mother deepened that all the more.” Bennett Miller, who successfully cast Jonah Hill against type in Moneyball, wasn’t overly familiar with Miller’s past projects, but was pleasantly surprised when he came across the audition she self-taped from her kitchen in London. “I guess I was expecting somebody who was too beautiful, had an English accent, and probably didn’t have a sense of this blue-collar world,”

he recounts. “We were looking for somebody based on a real person, and I had come to know this real person. She has a kind of selfpossession and a maturity of spirit. She’s somebody who is loving, but doesn’t take shit. She has a big heart and a generous soul, but you can’t take advantage of her because she holds her ground. Sienna just was that.” Still, the director acknowledges the difficulties for many actors, especially female ones, to find these kinds of breaks. “It’s probably more difficult for a woman because, truthfully, there are fewer great roles and fewer special opportunities in general,” he says. “I think, without question, Sienna is a real candidate to be recognized differently than she has been and deserves to be.” At 24/7, a waitress brings over two piping-hot chocolate croissants. She offers share plates for civilized consumption, but Sienna politely declines, instead spreading out her napkin and tearing the pastry apart above it, showering it with flaky bits of dough, coating her fingers and, momentarily, a lock of hair with gooey chocolate. The conversation turns, as it does, to love. First, through a series of rapid-fire questions, she tries to establish the seriousness of my relationship with my boyfriend. When did we move in together? After seven months of dating, I tell her, which I note seems pretty early to me. “Or after two weeks, like I did!” she offers, grinning, of her speedy cohabitation with Sturridge. Chance-takers—both of us!—it is decided. “But I like living that way,” she says, a little wistfully. “Life’s really short. A lot of what we do is a reaction to what people think you’re supposed to do: ‘Have a kid at 30. Move in, but live together for at least this amount of time.’ All of those rules I want to rebel against.” She gleefully pops a bit of croissant into her mouth. “Because I’m a spiteful little shit, basically.” GO BEHIND T H E SC E N ES AT M I L L E R ’S C OVE R SH O OT W I T H N Y LON T V

I bec ame interested in magazines when I was pretty young, and NY LON was like a secret little journal of fashion and culture that I got to read once a month. A few years after discovering it, Mark the Cobrasnake took me by the offices to meet his friend Marvin, and what do you know, the next day I was back for a photo shoot. A cover and a million crazy columns later, the magazine has become like family to me. Happy birthday!

EARL

TOWER HOTEL ,

MOSS materializes seemingly out of nowhere. She takes a seat on the patio at the Tower Bar and asks for a glass of rosé, trying to fit in this interview before a long-planned family get-together. Currently shooting the final season of Mad Men, the 31-year-old Moss can see the finish line, but even she doesn’t know the ultimate fate of Peggy Olson, the secretary-turned-copywriter she’s played since the series’ debut in 2007. “It’s pretty much a mystery; I could venture a couple of guesses, but…” she says, trailing off cautiously. “We just finished shooting the first half of Season 7, and I never could have anticipated what happens in it.” With her easy smile and warm humor—at one point she wonders aloud whether, to better enjoy the sunshine, we should just conduct the interview in the pool—Moss couldn’t be further from Peggy’s ambition and stoicism. The same applies for her roles in two independent features that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. In The One I Love, she plays half of a troubled-yet-trying married couple, opposite Mark Duplass, as a therapeutic getaway weekend takes a strange romantic turn; in Listen Up Phillip, she’s the girlfriend of a self-absorbed jerk. Due to her hectic shooting schedule, Moss had to fight to get to Sundance to hear the raves her two films earned.

“I was filming Mad Men at the time, and until you’re on that plane, you don’t know if you’re going,” she explains. “I had asked, and I had made my case, so every time I was tired and I wanted to complain, I was like, ‘You begged for this; you wanted to be here.’” The One I Love represents a departure for Moss—specifically in that there wasn’t a proper script. “Before I got what they called the ‘scriptment,’ the basic idea for the film was so good that I actually was saying to them, ‘Are we sure we don’t want to have a script for this?’ I didn’t want it to feel like an improv movie. Mark called me and said, ‘Trust me; I’ve done this a million times. It’s going to be fine.’ And it was nice to go into it knowing that it wasn’t going to feel like we were just making it up.” Listen Up Phillip concerns itself less with romance, as Moss’s Ashley deals with the many slights and flaws of her novelist boyfriend, played by Jason Schwartzman. Audiences may be surprised by the way Phillip shifts its focus to Moss’s long-suffering character mid-film, and that’s OK; after all, Moss was, too. “I read 35 pages of it and I was impressed. Then the script went off and followed Ashley for the next 20 pages, and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s cool! I got a bigger part,” she

MAD

says, laughing. “But I would have done it just to work with Jason.” Moss has already shown she’s more than just Peggy, of course. Her turn as Detective Robin Griffin in Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake miniseries earned her a Golden Globe earlier this year. And the role whetted her appetite for, perhaps, more rough-and-tumble stuff in the future. “It’s not like I’m sitting around hoping I’ll be in a superhero movie, but it must be fun to go to fight class and to dress up,” she says. “In Top of the Lake I got to run around, but I only got to fire my gun once; I was super sad about it.” Even with the end nigh for everyone’s favorite retro show, Moss is confident of Mad Men’s legacy— specifically because, for her, the show made sure its characters grew along with it. “I did a scene the other day—and without any spoilers or getting me fired—it was so different,” she says, sipping the last ounce of her rosé. “I used to come into the conference room, open the door, announce someone’s name, and close it—and that was my part of the scene. Or I used to pour drinks and then leave. It’s come such a long way for me. It’s gone so much further than I thought it was going to go.”

ARRIVING


Y AT THE SUNSET MEN 'S

ELISABETH


KICK

STARTER get pum ped —fo ster the peo ple hav e a new albu m. by lisa but terw orth It’s a balmy late-February afternoon in Mar Vista, California, a sleepy little neighborhood in West Los Angeles. Foster the People frontman Mark Foster is in a black T-shirt, black jeans, and black boots, sitting on the back patio of drummer Mark Pontius’s home. Ponsi, as he’s affectionately nicknamed, emerges through a slidingglass door wearing a straw porkpie hat, a white T-shirt, and jeans, carrying a tray of watermelon and cantaloupe slices and a Chemex of coffee. “This is what happens when your mom is in town,” he says, smiling. Maica, Pontius’s sweet Rottweiler mix, sunbathes lazily nearby. The only missing piece from this serene scene is the band’s bassist, Cubbie Fink, but for good reason: Gemma Elena, Fink’s baby daughter with his wife, Christian singer Rebecca St. James, decided to join the world just three days ago. She’s

got great timing, arriving three weeks prior to the March 19 due date of her dad’s band’s new album, Supermodel, the highly anticipated follow-up to Torches, their gold-certified 2011 debut. The guys are currently enjoying a few minutes of quiet before the storm. It’s the kind of quiet, in fact, that’s perfect for spending time with family, i.e., not journalists. But Foster the People and this magazine go way back—to the trio’s very beginning, in fact. “We owe a lot to NYLON,” says Foster, referring to a 2010 video on nylonmag. com that soundtracked highlights from an Anna Sui fashion show with the group’s soon-to-beubiquitous “Pumped Up Kicks,” only two weeks after it was written and recorded. From there, the dancey tune with the dark hook about a high school shooting landed on an influential German blog, then climbed the ranks of music aggregator Hype Machine. At the time, Foster the People hadn’t even played

one live show, but it didn’t take long for them to score a multi-album deal with Columbia Records, earn two Grammy nominations, and land a starring slot at this month’s Coachella festival. For their sophomore effort, the band went into the studio with the knowledge that millions of fans were waiting for the results, something Foster spent a lot of energy trying to forget. “I knew that if those fears or expectations came into the

creative process, the songs wouldn’t evolve from an authentic place,” he says leaning forward, revealing three faded red star tattoos on his right forearm. “It was a really hard record to make. And we were really vulnerable. I still feel exposed; I still feel the wind blowing on that raw nerve.” As difficult as its making may have been, Supermodel is all the better for it. The band has toned down the electronics, trading synths and beats for a more guitar-driven

aesthetic. For the album’s first writing session, Foster holed up in Morocco, and West African influences can be heard throughout. It’s the sound of a band that has grown into—and beyond—the success of a surprise hit single. But the evolution is far from over. “From the first record to this one, we have stepped into a new light, but we’ve got a long way to go,” says Pontius. Foster elaborates: “We still, after every single show, walk into our greenroom and lock the door and talk for 45 minutes about what we could do better next time. And I don’t think we’ll ever be content. That, for us, is what keeps things fresh and exciting and fun—we’re constantly striving for something that’s unattainable.” A few days later, Fink takes a break from newdad duty to discuss Supermodel over the phone from his San Diego home. “The first record, we kind of had to catch up to a wave that was already building in front of us,” he explains. “We were a baby band. This time, we went into the studio with a better understanding of who we were as musicians, and who we were as a band. Every time I listen to these songs, I’m imagining the crowds reacting to them, and I think they’re going to have a blast.”

INHERENT VIC “All right, I just applauded, but I don’t know that it deserves applause yet,” says Anna Chlumsky, lustily eyeing her Instagrammable bowl of brûléed farina. Hair scraped back into a bun, she wears snow boots and a chambray Western shirt to breakfast at Maialino, an elegant Italian restaurant on the ground floor of the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York. For once, there are not clusters of paparazzi hovering near the entrance, because so much snow and ice is accumulating outside that most celebrities are likely hibernating, and everyone who relies on public transportation is running late. Chlumsky? Not so much, even though she lives in an outer neighborhood of Brooklyn and she travels by subway.

ra th gar e b y b aphed otogr

Punctuality isn’t the only trait she shares with chief of staff Amy Brookheimer, her character on HBO’s political satire Veep, which returns for its third season this month. Chlumsky is also highly educated (she majored in international studies at the University of Chicago) and hyper articulate (how many people freely use adverbs like “vehemently”?). She’s a bit more freewheeling than her on-screen persona, though the past few months of channeling Amy during filming in Baltimore have left her tightly wound. “I can’t wait to get a massage,” she admits. “My jaw is so tight. And the shoulders are up here.” She shrugs them toward her ears.

brant

As Amy, Chlumsky is the all-business foil to accidentprone Vice President Selina Meyer, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. “It would be funny enough if we were just archetypes, but Selina will have a moment where she just gets really steely and does her job well and you’re like, ‘Oh, yeah. This woman’s been in the Senate for 20 years. There’s a reason she’s up there. She’s good at this.’” The same sentiment could be applied to Chlumsky, who has returned to acting as an adult after enduring early-onset fame thanks to her starring role in the 1991 tearjerker My Girl opposite Macaulay Culkin.

And yes—to many adoring fans she encounters on the street, she’s still that girl from that movie. “The only time I get annoyed by it is when [journalists] still ask me about the kiss,” she says. “Folks, you can Google my answer to that question; I was asked it when I was 10.” Chlumsky went on to have a fairly traditional upbringing in suburban Chicago, and after college, moved to New York. “I had no idea why,” she recalls. “I was so freaked out about getting a job that I was like, ‘I’m going to apply for everything.’” She landed a position as a fact-checker at Zagat, and later went on to work in book publishing. “I totally thought I was done,” she

says of acting. But the charms of Broadway— specifically, a production of Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?— and a chance encounter were among the events that brought her back to her first profession. “I was crying on my lunch break because I was so unhappy, and I was going back to my office and passed a psychic who was handing out pamphlets. She was like, ‘Wait! Wait! Aren’t you the girl from My Girl?’ You know, big psychic. And she’s like, ‘You’re not done.’” After forty dollars, a palm reading, and some reflection, Chlumsky was back out on auditions.

It takes a few minutes, but eventually all evidence of the two-hour-plus glam session from this morning’s photo shoot is erased. Seated on a plush couch inside a Los Angeles loft, bare-skinned, glowing, and shrouded in a veil of waistlength Diana Ross curls, the 34-year-old singer-songwriter-chef-mother looks just shy of 25, and, quite simply, beautiful. Her career shares a birth year with NYLON—it’s been a decade and a half since her debut full-length, Kaleidoscope, came out—and this month’s Food is her sixth and most sophisticated album to date. Recorded with TV on the Radio’s David Sitek in his Glendale, California studio (a stone’s throw from Kelis’s own home), and released on the forward-thinking Ninja Tune label, Food wraps an elegant stole around the raw, dance-diva energy of hits like “Milkshake” and “Acapella.” “This was the record I wanted to make for a long time; I just wasn’t ready to do it,” says the Harlem-born artist, her speaking voice a mirror of her singing style, hoarse and catching, changing registers within the space of a sentence. “It wasn’t the right time. It’s like if you’ve got an amazing gown on, but you’re going to a baseball game—it’s just not right.” Somewhere in between making

music, touring, and raising her fouryear-old son, Knight (fathered by ex-husband Nas), Kelis attended the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school and is now a certified chef. She recently launched a line of sauces called Feast and filmed a special for the Cooking Channel, which premiered in late February. In addition to the references in the title and song names (“Jerk Ribs,” “Breakfast,” “Cobbler,” and “Friday Fish Fry,” etc.), Kelis incorporated her gastronomical expertise into the making of the album. While recording, Sitek would noodle on instruments while Kelis prepared meals in the studio’s kitchen. When inspiration struck, she’d chime in with a verse. “One of the things we learned in culinary school was: Don’t manhandle. I take that approach toward everything in my life now,” she says with a throaty chuckle. “We’d give songs working titles for the day, and when it came time to pick names, the temporary one was as good as any other.” Everything that has figured into Kelis’s musical makeup over the years—soul, R&B, funk, sharp-edged dance-pop—combines on Food to form a well-balanced, fresh, smart, and satisfying sonic meal. On “Floyd,” a baritone horn plays against the singer’s

languorous tones; on “Hooch,” the horns take a jazz lounge turn, stirring a stiff drink laced with suggestive sighs. A syncopated beat balances Kelis’s hums and croons on “Forever Be,” and saucy keys underscore her quivering declarations on “Biscuits n’ Gravy.” “As much as I want to expand creatively, there’s only so far I can go and still be true to myself,” says Kelis. “I don’t see all the separations that other people see in my music. To me, Food is not a departure; it’s just me in front of a purple background, me in front of a blue one, a floral one. I don’t have enough of a clear concept to have a fear of change, but if I’m not at least a little bit afraid, then I don’t think what I’m doing is any good. I am always looking for that balance.” Finding her center came, in part, through watching her old concert footage while assembling a set list for an upcoming tour. “People don’t want to let you grow,” she says. “They hold you accountable for things you did when you were 17, and they expect you to feel the same, look the same, react the same. I’m not the same. I’m so removed from that girl from 1999. But I finally feel like I understand what people saw, and there is such freedom in that.”

ULTUR LUB


Most creative types will tell you they were born this way, baby, but French sculptor Prune Nourry, 28, can pinpoint the moment she became an artist. “I was 10 years old, and my father and I were walking along the beach. We found these beautiful, broken pieces of a ship and decided to turn them into an art show in the sand,” she recalls. “We invited a hundred people and served champagne, like in a proper gallery.” At 13, Nourry discovered clay as a medium and began reading If This Is a Man, the 1947 memoir by Holocaust survivor Primo Levi. The author inspired Nourry to explore bioethical issues with

her hands. “Why do we treat pets like human beings, but at the same time still have slavery ?” wonders Nourry. “That’s what I ask in my artwork.” Nourry, who’s been in reside nce at Brookl yn’s Invisib le Dog Art Cente r since 2011, is best known in the States for her projec t “The Sperm bar,” a foodstand- like install ation critiqu ing the sperm bank indust ry, where visitor s pick the traits of their prospe ctive kids. Her latest projec t, “Terra cotta Daugh ters,” combi nes a Chines e nation al treasu re, the terracotta warrio rs, with the countr y’s contro versial one-ch ild policy. For the past year and a half, Nourry has been building a 116-statue army of terra-cotta schoolgirls in

ARMY OF ONE

Xi’an, the site of the original warriors. The statues are modeled on eight real orphans Nourry met through the Chinese charity Children of Madaifu, and represent the estimated 60 million females who have been abandoned or terminated since the one-child policy took effect in 1979. “I prefer to change a little part of something that’s very familiar,” says Nourry. “You’re not afraid of what you know.” Nourry ’s adherence to ancient molding techniques and collaboration with Xi’an craftsmen made it easier to break through governmental red tape and exhibit her work. “I wanted to make an army that spoke to the people and raised some questions, but was also respectful of the original process,” she says. Shanghai gallerist Magda Danysz hosted the Daughters at her namesake space this past September, and private collectors have since funded a 2014 world tour (not to mention the education of the eight orphans who inspired the project ). The Daughters will be on display in Paris this month, with subsequent exhibits in Zurich, New York, and Mexico City. Nourry then plans to bring them back to China and bury them in a secret location, as Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi did with his terra-cotta army.

caroline polachek goes solo! The angelic-voiced frontwoman of electronic pop duo Chairlift, Caroline Polachek, is breaking out for a spell with a solo album this month. (And she’s going by the name Ramona Lisa and donning a long black wig for it, no less.) The resultant album, Arcadia, is a futuristic capsule of ’80s-tinged electronic weirdness. HAZEL CILLS expect: Minimalist synths, surreal lyrics, and Polachek’s famously ethereal, opera-trained voice.

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE It’s only through Jim Jarmusch’s lens that audiences would get the kind of vampire film that Only Lovers Left Alive offers. Starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as Adam and Eve, the film portrays a cultured variety of bloodsucker, one who’d skulk around a dark and creaky house in Detroit listening to records and discussing art. Due to their refined tastes, the two never drink blood directly from humans, but when Eve’s troublemaking sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) shows up and sinks her teeth into Adam’s human friend, killing him, the two are forced to skip town. They end up in Tangier—why not?—and spend the remainder of the film scouring the Moroccan city for a new supply of the good stuff. MR

FINDING VIVIAN MAIER In our age, an artist—or really, any human—who does not want to be famous is such a shocking notion that when an amateur historian discovered the photography of Vivian Maier after buying a box of negatives at an auction, the world became transfixed by her private artistic life. Her photos—mostly black-and-white street scenes— were remarkable, too, and as more people became aware of her work, critics duly carved out a place for her in the pantheon. The film follows directors John Maloof and Charlie Siskel as they attempt to gain more insight into the artist's mysterious existence. MR o

TEENAGE A curious assortment of creative minds had a hand in making the documentary Teenage, about the genesis of youth culture from the late 19th century through the middle of the 20th. Directed by Matt Wolf, produced by Jason Schwartzman, scored by Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound), and narrated by Jena Malone and Ben Whishaw, the film pairs rare archival footage with diary entries to tell stories about adolescence that highlight both the universalities of the condition and the particular ways that specific demographics may have experienced it. It's an extremely ambitious endeavor tackled with a lot of care and style. MR

A SHORT HISTORY OF DECAY Nathan Fisher (Bryan Greenberg) is eating lunch alone—he's recently been dumped and his ex is already seeing someone else. During this lonely meal, his brother calls to tell him that their dad has had a stroke, and because of this, there's no one to take care of their mother who suffers from Alzheimer's. This is the reality that our central character must come to grips with in A Short History of Decay. Even after Nathan flies to Florida to be with his parents, he can't shake

his ex-girlfriend Erika (Emmanuelle Chriqui), whom his parents seem to have loved. But Florida, despite its reputation, becomes a place of revelation: When his successful brother Jack (Benjamin King) visits, he reveals the truth about what has left him broke, single, and unemployed. But surprisingly, it's his mother's nail technician who delivers the camaraderie he really needs to turn a corner. JORDAN STERNBERG

cat people When does the idea for a magazine about cats and the people who love them come about? After a couple of drinks, obviously. That’s how co-founders Jessica Lowe and Gavin Green hatched the plan for their new annual magazine Cat People, the first issue of which features profiles of cat lovers like fashion designer Vivetta Ponti, whose garments sometimes include tributes to her feline friends in the form of special pockets and otherworldly prints, as well as contributions from artists like Takashi Homma. The mag, which debuted at the Tokyo Art Book Fair, includes text in Japanese, and Lowe and Green have pledged to donate $1 from each issue sold to ARK, an animal rescue organization based in Osaka. The cofounders? They’re Australian. “We’re really inspired by Japanese publishing and how they focus on one topic,” says Lowe. “Plus, they obsess over cats, and we really connect with that.” Clearly.

Like watching a lone skater glide across a barely frozen lake, the immaculate pirouettes and plies that make up Maggie Shipstead's Astonish Me thrill in their precarious perfection. Shipstead's gripping novel centers on Joan, a professional ballerina-turned-dance teacher, whose life is recorded through leaps in space and time over many years. Joan's son grows up to be a successful ballet dancer in his own right, and the cast of characters previously surrounding her reemerges. When secrets from Joan's past are revealed, both generations discover inextricable links, and Shipstead's insights into human nature take center stage. The story's surprisingly satisfying outcome encourages us to accept imperfection and even take refuge in doing so; granting not just permission to allow the ice to crack, but to force it to.

too long to boil") to the devastating ("The Seals," a longer story about the loss of two family members), Davis manages to capture the peaks, valleys, and plains of human experience with equal clarity. In the age of indiscriminate sharing, social media has made us all reporters of minutiae, and while Davis and her narrators are no different, their dispatches cut through the noise with precision, exposing the strange core of human experience.

IEF H T E H T I S FO R ole Y A D Y R EVE b y t eju c e dom hous Fans of Teju Cole's Open City will find much to relish in Every Day Is for the Thief. In both novels, the reader is lodged in the psyche of a thoughtful and observant narrator, who exists, uncomfortably, between worlds. In Every Day, we tag along with a young, unnamed New York physician as he travels to his native Lagos for an extended visit. Worlds collide at an Internet cafe when he checks his email next to a "yahoo yahoo" committing email fraud on unwitting Westerners; they fray at the edges when he finds himself lost in his once-familiar hometown. `

There's a Built to Spill line from Perfect From Now On: "No one wants to hear what you dreamt about/ unless you dreamt about them." Usually true—but then again, you aren't Lydia Davis. In her new collection, Can't and Won't, Davis handily dismisses this notion, peppering descriptions of her own dreams alongside Flaubert translations, letters of complaint, original short stories, and quotidian miscellanea. As 2009's Collected Stories affirmed, Davis has always been a versatile writer, and in this collection she continues to volley between minimalist and miniaturist, relating the sorrow of aging and death in a handful of sentences or devoting several pages to the daily activities of a trio of cows. From the mundane ("My tea water takes

"Not knowing where I am exposes me to various dangers," he muses. "On the other hand, letting go of my moorings makes me connect to the city as pure place, through which I move without prejudging." Maintaining this steadfastness throughout the book's 176 pages, Cole's narrator details a series of everyday annoyances (the bribes required on both sides of the Atlantic for a smooth exit and entry) and horrific injustices (a bag-snatching child burned alive outside a busy market), forever alternating between an infuriating disgust with the city and a profound love for it. MELISSA GIANNINI

“Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition,” wrote Harlem-born James Baldwin, famously, in his 1956 novel, Giovanni’s Room. That sentence—one of the frequent expat’s many brilliant, heartfelt lines—will no doubt be a topic of discussion when New York Live Arts kicks off “The Year of James Baldwin” in his hometown on April 23, with the weeklong event series “James Baldwin, This Time!” Featuring theater (Nothing Personal, based on his collaborative book with Richard Avedon), film (by visual artist Hank Willis Thomas), dance, discussions, and more, the organization has planned nearly 20 events dedicated to interpreting the artist’s dynamic body of work, which ranges from fiction to essays to poetry to playwriting to social activism. The sure-to-be engaging “Concluding Conversation” on April 27, between Fran Lebowitz and Colm Tóibín, is less an end as it is the beginning of a much-deserved year of appreciation. MR
