At NYLON, watching movies, and lots of them, is part of the job description. Whether it’s taking in six screenings a day at the Sundance Film Festival or spending the weekend tethered to Netflix and Apple TV, our editors take this responsibility seriously, which is why our annual Young Hollywood issue is among our favorites. Hailee Steinfeld first appeared on our radar when she was promoting True Grit, and when I saw the film, I was struck by how her performance was just as compelling

as those given by her co-stars, seasoned actors like Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin. Four years later, she’s proving to be one of the busiest actresses of her generation. But the Young Hollywood issue does not begin and end with film—many of the actors in the portfolio have equally interesting television and online projects. I’m really excited about the new web series “Oh, You Pretty Things!” which was co-produced by NYLON TV and will begin streaming this month at

As this issue goes to press, we’re having an amazing time at one of the best Coachella festivals in recent memory—and we’re not just saying that because 2014 is our first year co-hosting the Neon Carnival. I caught a fantastic set from Haim, a bunch of over-the-top pool parties, and a lot of cool festival style. Thanks to all this new film and music, 2014 is shaping up to be a pretty great year. marvin scott jarrett editor-in-chief

bright star says Anda. “And Hailee fell for the stylized flower Miu Miu dress, glittery Louboutins, and pastel palette.” The fun extended to a bright beauty look as makeup artist Hung Vanngo used teal liner to add an unexpected pop of color to otherwise classic smoky eyes and slicked a hot pink hue on her lips. Steinfeld’s hair got the cool-girl treatment—loads of texture and beachy waves—thanks to Forecast’s arsenal of curling and straightening irons, plus thickening spray and shine serum.






Hailee Steinfeld has spent nearly half her life working as an actress, but this Hollywood veteran is far from a jaded diva. “She had a great energy and was really excited about the shoot,” says hairstylist Rebekah Forecast. Steinfeld’s positive vibes created a party-like atmosphere that lent itself to the veritable clothing rainbow chosen by stylists Anda and Masha. “We loved the colorful leather jackets, green ICB balloon pants, and tiedyed high-top Vans,”

“To get natural-looking beachy waves, I used a 1 1/2" curling iron from the roots to midway down, then a 2” one toward the bottom, and finished by putting a bend in the ends with a straightening iron,” says Forecast.

Like any actress with serious ambition, Eve Hewson arrived over-prepared for her meeting with Steven Soderbergh. Vying for a role in the semi-retired director’s 10-episode period drama The Knick (premiering this summer on Cinemax), she came to lunch with pages of notes she had written about the character, a Southern nurse in New York at the turn of the 20th century. “And he was like, ‘So…tell me about Taylor Swift. She has so many Twitter followers. Why is that? What’s the appeal?’” she recalls, laughing. “I thought, Yes! I can talk about this! Then we talked about cats.” Hewson later learned that Soderbergh had already cast her based on the strength of an audition tape she’d submitted. He just wanted to get to know his 22-year-old leading lady, a relative unknown and the daughter of Bono and Ali Hewson, co-founder of Edun. If you’re wondering, Bono sounds adorably parental. When Hewson was 14, the U2 singer took her and her older sister to the racy rock musical Spring Awakening. He hadn’t realized they’d all be treated to “Lea Michele’s boobs” and “some aggressive thrusting” between Michele and co-star

Style: RB3025

Jonathan Groff. During intermission, he appealed to his red-cheeked daughters: “What?! I didn’t know!” But Hewson’s tastes are far from demure. Between sips of green tea at the Beachwood Café in Hollywood, she ticks off her childhood favorite films: Thirteen, Natural Born Killers, Requiem for a Dream. “I watched all these screwed-up movies as a kid,” she says, adding: “But E.T. is my favorite one ever.” Hewson grew up in Dublin—as evidenced by her faint Irish lilt–and studied drama at New York University. While in college, she played the wise-beyond-her-years friend of a retired rock star (Sean Penn, channeling The Cure’s Robert Smith) in This Must Be the Place. Still, Hewson admits to feeling some panic between gigs. “Sometimes I wake up in the morning and I’m like, ‘What am I doing? I can’t do this!’ My mom literally just gave me a pep talk: ‘Get your butt in that audition room. You can do it!’”

Her parents were initially skeptical of her desire to pursue showbiz, which Hewson understands. “Everything aside from the acting really sucks,” she says. “Auditioning. Photo shoots. Red carpets. I think they didn’t want me to be a part of that.” Of course, not all photo shoots suck. Hewson loved playing dress-up in dresseddown tuxedo shirts with us, though she usually keeps her look low-key. Today, makeup-free and wearing a black A$AP sweatshirt with a haphazard ponytail, she reveals the love-hate relationship she developed with the corsets she wore throughout The Knick’s fivemonth shoot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn: “I have selfies of me on the floor of the dressing room, like, ‘I can’t move. Help me.’ But now I kind of miss them. You get into one and suddenly your jeans fit so much better.”

fashion news

like a moss

Although artist and fashion blogger Garance Dore` is famed for her Internet presence, she's always been equally drawn to print. "Paper creates such an intimate, physical relationship with artwork," she explains. So this month, Dore` takes her talents to a new medium with the release of her debut stationery and gift collection, created in partnership with the experts at Rifle Paper Co. Her trademark illustrations of elegantly dressed women and nods to her signature French ` sensibility (think: tres ` belle and bonjour tres inscriptions) adorn this range of 30 products, including calendars, cards, notebooks, phone cases, and more. "It tells a story, it's personal, and it's uniquely Garance," says Rifle's creative director Anna Bond. "I don't think there's anything else out there quite like it." LM

Every self-respecting NYLON staffer has at least one Kate Moss Topshop item squirreled away in her closet. (Not all of us keep certain prized pieces preserved in plastic, but that’s another story.) So imagine the mass hysteria when we learned that Moss is back with yet another collection, bowing in stores momentarily. The fashion icon ponders the process with Ashley Baker. Which Topshop item have you had the longest? The little Victorian leather jacket from my collection that came out in 2009 is one of my favorites.  How do you organize all of your clothes and accessories? I organize by color-blocking, mostly: black dresses, colored dresses, leather jackets, fur jackets, jeans in all colors (which are mostly black and grays). I am really bad at editing so I also archive pieces, too. Everything is photographed, so I have a record of things, like the last time I wore something. 


Who are the beneficiaries of your closet clean-outs? If I’m sent jeans that are too small for me, I give them to my godchildren. Random question: What are your favorite movies of all time? Withnail & I and Performance.    Who are your style icons? Anita Pallenberg, who has given me most of her stuff. And Keith Richards; the scarves and the shirts, which were all probably Anita’s anyway—she styled The Rolling Stones. 

he ar t of palm A resident of Venice, California, by way of Aix-en-Provence, France, Sundry designer Matthieu Leblan infuses his line with equal parts easygoing surf spirit and smart European sensibility. This season, the label lends its vision to J.Crew for a collaboration comprising pieces with a seaside vibe. The

palm tree makes several appearances, whether it’s stamped across sweatpants or printed on an “ex-boyfriend” tee. Other items are just as tethered to the shore, and the overall effect is understated, yet luxurious—just what the summer ordered. LISA MISCHIANTI

ZEN LIVING Every yogi knows the joy of a cushy mat beneath her bare feet. Sanuk captures that feeling with the Yoga Sling 2 sandal's comfortable yoga mat footbed, flexible build, and snug ankle strap. The style has proven so popular the brand is unveiling two new silhouettes: the Yoga Slingshot, with a slimmer ankle strap, and the Yoga Slinger, a flip-flop style. Namaste. LM

fit to print Finnish brand Marimekko has been churning out peppy and addictive prints since the dawn of time (OK, since 1951). But until now, it required a bit of sleuthing or even a trip to a major metropolis like New York or Helsinki to score some of the brand’s ready-towear pieces. Which is why we're so excited about the Banana Republic Marimekko Collection, which bows this month. It includes shirts, dresses, skirts, and even tees, ranging from $39.50 to $140. Which means you may finally be able to afford a trip to Helsinki. AB


som fun Kohl’s has already partnered with major fashion designers like Narciso Rodriguez, Catherine Malandrino, and Derek Lam, but its latest collaboration with Peter Som may just be its coolest union yet. The collection, inspired by Som’s recent trip to the island of St. Barths, is an airy assortment of flowy maxi dresses, comfy jumpsuits, and printed bombers, clearly inspired by a love of travel and

ease when packing clothes for trips. When it comes to the color palette, Som says it combines “the best of crisp French-inspired nautical colors with a mix of sun-bleached shades while black and white anchor the collection.” And, awesomely, the entire collection is under $100. JADE TAYLOR

Nobody does Zooey Deschanel's heavily retro style nearly as well as Zooey Deschanel, and finally, a designer has tapped the New Girl star (and She + Him chanteuse) to deliver it to the masses. To Tommy, From Zooey is a capsule range dreamed up by Deschanel and Tommy Hilfiger that's full of the kind of swingy shifts, pleated shirtdresses, bags, and vintagey baubles that Deschanel is known for. She refers to it as "modical," given the collection's myriad nautical influences. We'll just refer to it as "our new summer wardrobe." AB

So until Meadham Kirchhoff designs some wacky kaleidoscopic camping gear or Rick Owens makes a tent out of 10,000 layers of black chiffon, I'll pass. But the geniuses at Penfield may have just changed my mind with their awesome new collection of tents, picnic blankets, Frisbees, candles, and mugs printed with palm trees and saturated colors that could easily pass as props on a Wes Anderson set.

Canham grew up surfing in Hawaii, and eventually became the art director at Surfer Magazine before moving to Northern California. “Being raised around the beach definitely informed what I do, and living in San Francisco has been a big inspiration,” he says. It was during an apprenticeship at New Bohemia Signs that Canham learned the tricks of the handpainted sign trade, and has since become known for breathing new life into the art form. “Everything I do now has some element of that history, whether it’s the materials or the techniques,” he says. His work is seen at Mollusk, a surf shop near his studio, as well as at Facebook’s HQ, where, as their artist in residence, he just finished painting murals of PHP code. KELLEY HOFFMAN

SUIT UP! 3.1 phillip lim The moto jacket and peplum top are just two of the shapes-of-the-moment that designer Phillip Lim is reworking. “I like the crispness of raw denim—in the right use it can take on a whole new purpose," he says. "For me, it’s as classic as black or navy.”

Just in time for beach season, designer Shoshanna Gruss is lending her expertise in the swimsuit realm to Club Monaco with a capsule collection for the retailer that includes bikinis, onepieces, and rash guards. "My current obsession is the twist bandeau in a beautiful coral print," the designer explains. "It's the perfect suit to wear poolside." AB

Jeff Canham, an artist, designer, and sign painter, starts his morning by checking the surf from his window in his pastel dream of a neighborhood, San Francisco’s Outer Sunset. If it’s good, he’ll hit the waves with friends, then walk a couple of blocks to his studio, Woodshop, which he shares with three other artisans. Needless to say, Canham's surfer sensibility makes him an ideal guy to create a summer capsule collection for Target's Mossimo Supply Co. brand. The 30-piece range for men and women includes tank tops, board shorts, beach bags, towels, and flip-flops featuring Canham’s stylish, ‘60s surf graphics—and everything is under $25. His inspiration? “The beach, California, sunshine, good times,” says Canham.

I collect—er, hoard—a lot of things, but sunglasses are at the top of the list. I’ve worn them since I was a kid, but I never thought of them as luxury items until I got my first pair of Cartiers. What could be more luxurious than that? I recently lost them, and although we all know that glasses are an easy thing to lose, I took it very hard. So obviously, in true Factory Girl form, I made a call, then flew off to Paris to make myself another pair. After a fantastically uneventful flight, I settle into my room at the Sofitel near Rue St. Honoré, which is ideally located for my shopping and eating purposes. I immediately run to the dreamy Hôtel Costes for the first of three consecutive lunches I’ll enjoy there during my trip. The courtyard at Costes is the hub of everything chic, especially during Paris Fashion Week. In case you were wondering, I always order the escargot, mashed potatoes, and haricots verts. (OK, occasionally, I opt for steak.) After a bit of shopping and wandering, I take in a show at the Crazy Horse and have a restorative night’s sleep before my work begins. At 8 a.m., a driver collects me from the Sofitel and transports me to the factory in Sucy-en-Brie in the Val-deMarne, just outside the city. Its façade resembles—what

else?—a pair of glasses, but like everything in the Cartier universe, it’s sleek and understated. I’m given a lab coat and introduced to Hyginus Kibuanda, from Cartier’s quality control department, and Florent Molaro, a manager at the facility. Although Cartier may be best known for its jewelry, the brand began making optical instruments in 1887, and it first produced commercial eyewear in 1983 with two styles, the Must and Vendôme. As Kibuanda and Molaro explain their work, it becomes clear that

Cartier pays as much meticulous attention to manufacturing its glasses as it does to creating its finest jewelry. The process begins with a gouache painting from Cartier’s design studio; the style is then interpreted in a wax sculpture before evolving into a resin model or 3-D design. Then the expert modelers make a model, and adjustments to the final design are executed accordingly. Next comes the metal work. Although I do not participate in the hammering down, stamping, cutting, or perforating of the metal parts—and wisely, I am not anywhere near the

diamonds that polish the bridges and joints—I am enlisted to try my hand at brazing, a technique used to solder two pieces of metal, which allows me to use some very powerful and potentially dangerous machinery. I am so successful that I’m invited to test my polishing skills. At Cartier, this process begins when the components of the glasses are placed in barrels containing crushed walnut shells or wood, which are mixed with polishing paste. It’s finished by hand, as highly skilled artisans with years of experience masterfully buff each piece. I definitely get an arm workout, but the powers that be declare my efforts to be successful. Moving on! The glasses are given several markings—a serial number, regulatory information, the frame size, temple length, and, for precious-metal frames, the guarantee and Cartier master stamps. The Cartier signature, of course, is my favorite. Those glasses bestowed with luxe finishes like gold, palladium, ruthenium, and platinum are electroplated, which deposits the

precious metal layer on a conductive part using an electric current. The pieces then luxuriate in baths, which is a bit too technical to get into, and then finally, at the assembly workshop, all the parts are assembled, and the symmetry and conformity of each frame are put to the test. My help is once again enlisted, and I pop in the lenses, thus completing the finished project (which is then subject to 25 more quality control tests, but I’m sure my pair will pass with flying colors). I’m a bit exhausted— all in all, this little pair of glasses required 180 different actions to come into existence. But when I try on the diamondencrusted Panthère style, clocking in at $197,000, I understand how these things add up. Naturally, I need another lunch at Costes (for my usual) before I’m ready to delve into the Cartier archives back in Paris, which, I assume, is my reward for a job well done. They are located above Cartier’s flagship on the Place Vendôme, and they’re presided over by a terribly

chic woman named, appropriately, Violette Petit. She shows me sales ledgers from the 19th century and we pore over antique books of sketches. The most amazing thing I saw was a photograph of Yadavindra, the son of the Maharaja of Patiala, wearing ceremonial necklaces that were dripping in precious gemstones. His mantra must have been: the more jewels, the better. At the end of the day, I am given a stunning one-of-a-kind pair in marbleized green and purple acetate as a memento of my trip—and they’re just the thing I need, because next on my agenda, of course, is the Chanel show. La vie est belle!

When Aubrey Plaza first appeared in NYLON, she’d just been cast in Parks and Recreation, which ended up being a star-making turn for the actress. For her column this month, Cory Kennedy catches up with her pal— currently filming Ned Rifle in New York City, with Sundance hit Life After Beth, written and directed by her boyfriend Jeff Baena, out later this summer—to talk about how Tinseltown has been treating her. And, of course, some other totally unrelated stuff.

Let’s start off with what you are doing in this exact moment–please tell. It’s hard for me to answer this question without mentioning you and your question and how I am answering it at this exact moment. Also, I am listening to a band called You Won’t and eating the tips of my braids. In bed. What are a couple of things you’ve learned in the five years since your debut in NYLON’s Young Hollywood issue? Never believe what anyone says. Don’t read reviews. Nothing means anything and everything means nothing. Real friends are important. Cars

What’s your pet peeve? Twitter. are stupid. Get it while it’s hot. Keep your head down and don’t take anything too seriously. And nothing matters. What would your spirit animal be and why? (Mine is a sloth—a lot of my friends call me Slory—so beat that.) I just bought a white jacket with a bunch of deer heads on it. I think deer are my spirit animals. And foxes. I have no friends. I have a feeling you like trampolines. Am I right? Fine, yes. What bands are you into at the moment? The Spring Standards, Jukebox the Ghost, and You Won’t.

What’s something you would never do? Skydive. Upside-down roller coasters. Taco Bell. Grad school. How about something you want to do? Go to Japan. Own a horse. Do Broadway. illustrated by pamela loredo sustaita.

a unique tone and really specific characters,” she explains. (In any given episode, Maslany could be conjuring up a trashtalking con woman, a paranoid mother, or an ailing scientist.) “They’re all a part of me or people I know and love.” Growing up in Regina, Saskatchewan, she recalls, “My brothers and I would force our parents to sit down and watch us perform dances or little pieces of theater for them in our living room. But I didn’t have aspirations to do this or that. I just enjoyed it, and [my acting career] happened pretty organically. It’s been such a huge part of my personality for the longest time, and a lot of my interests come back to acting in some way or another, whether it’s reading books about it or studying films.”

That focus has earned her raves for Orphan Black, including a Critic’s Choice Television Award, a TCA Award, and later, the Golden Globe nod in the same category as seasoned heavyweights like Julianna Margulies and Robin Wright. “It still doesn’t feel like it happened,” says Maslany, incredulous even months after she first learned of her nomination through Twitter. At heart, she remains a hometown girl. As for her most Canadian character traits? “The selfdeprecating thing,” she admits. “I find it really difficult to talk about myself, because I don’t know what to say and I don’t think anything’s really interesting. And the ability to withstand minus-50-degree weather! I swear by long underwear.”

No one puts on a show quite like Karl Lagerfeld, and once a year, he selects a far-flung locale to stage his Métiers d’Art collection. After memorable runway shows on the banks of the Lido in Venice and among the ruins of the Linlithgow Palace outside of Edinburgh, this past December, Team Chanel descended upon Dallas. This was not the brand’s first time at the proverbial rodeo—Coco Chanel visited Texas in 1957, when she was invited to receive the Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion by none other than Stanley Marcus himself. Nearly 50 years later, Chanel commemorated the occasion with over 900 guests including editors, bloggers, and It Girls (like Alexa Chung, Dakota Fanning, and current campaign face Kristen Stewart). Upon arrival at the home of the Texas State Fair, guests were invited to take their seats in vintage cars at a ’50s-style drive-in movie theater, where Lagerfeld’s new short film, The Return, was screened, and corn dogs were consumed. Then the crowd moved indoors to a tent styled like a rodeo, where models took to the dirt runway in denim, lace, Western jewelry, hats, and cowgirl boots. Everything was tinged with Chanel’s signature sense of couture, of course, and the stylish mix of formalwear with casual looks is only one of the reasons this collection was so inspiring. DANI STAHL

Getting to the physiological root of the pimple problem is simple. “Acne starts with a blocked pore,” explains Dr. Eric Schweiger, founder of the Clear Clinic acne treatment center. “The obstruction is a combination of excess sebum and dead skin cells, which causes a buildup of oil and bacteria.” While the origins of this unpleasantness can range from the uncontrollable, including genetics, hormones (a fun side effect of PMS), and stress, to the manageable, like personal hygiene and diet, you can reduce flare-ups through a carefully considered regimen and lifestyle tweaks. Start by picking the right cleanser: “A gentle foaming face wash will clean

thoroughly without requiring much rubbing,” says Dr. Schweiger. While grease may be partly to blame for pimples, trying to eliminate it altogether will actually cause your body to amp up sebum production. To avoid this nasty cycle, stick to one or two oil-eliminating products, exfoliate sparingly, and moisturize regularly with an oil-free formula. When choosing targeted zit zappers, like masks and spot treatments, look for active ingredients like pore-unclogging salicylic acid, bacteria-killing benzoyl peroxide, oil-absorbing sulfur, and anti-inflammatory green tea. Beyond topical interventions, getting more sleep and eating mindfully (i.e., cutting down on sugar and dairy) can also help keep blemishes at bay. KATIE DICKENS

Marc Jacobs further solidified his reputation as the king of cool by enlisting an army of It Girls, including Georgia May Jagger, Sky Ferreira, Cara Delevingne, and Charlotte Free, to debut his spring '14 collection. As the high-wattage models and neo-Victorian getups were quite distracting, it's possible you may have overlooked the badass brown polish that adorned the stunners'’ nails. It was the perfect counterpoint to the preponderance of nude and candy-colored manis this season, and now, eight months later, you can finally get your hands on it (or get it on your hands). Called Bark!, the warm cocoa color is an edgier answer to the everyday neutral. Up next: finding the courage to pull off the choppy bob that also appeared on his runway.

The word rogue can refer to a misbehaving horse, a vagrant, or a mischievous person. It’s the last definition that puts the R in indie haircare line R+Co, which refers to the maverick spirit of its founders, Bumble and bumble’s former senior artistic director Howard McLaren, legendary stylist Garren, and top men’s groomer Thom Priano. “Our concept for R+Co was to bring together a collective of the best hairdressers in the world, which allows us to have multiple strengths and perspectives on everything we do,” explains McLaren. The hair supergroup also enlisted photographers, perfumers, and other like-minded pros to form a kind of beauty think tank. They helped contribute to the smartly designed packaging, the quintet of unique scents including earthy Relative Paradise and juicy Love Bite, and clever names like Atlantis (hydrating shampoo and conditioner), Park Ave. (blowout balm), and Death Valley (dry shampoo). And, of course, the genius formulas. “We develop each product with one stylist, who is known for that type of hair. So if we’re looking to create the best volumizer out there, we work with the person known for creating big hair, and the same goes for glamorous looks, rock ‘n’ roll looks, and so on,” explains Garren. It’s basically like a styling commune, and one that’s bound to amass a cult following. KATIE DICKENS r+co haircare line, $24-$29,

It’s been almost two decades since a freshfaced Christy Turlington memorably sold the public on Calvin Klein’s Eternity fragrance by walking along the beach with a shirtless Mark Vanderloo, shooting meaningful glances his way, and whispering sweet nothings about love everlasting. The scent managed to live up to its name by sticking around for over a quarter-century, which is like infinity in perfume years. To celebrate the milestone, the iconic bottle has been swathed in silver—the traditional gift for a 25th anniversary—and the 1995 ads with Turlington and Vanderloo will be re-released. Yes, time marches on, but the staying power of both Eternity and Turlington proves they do not abide by the laws of nature.

And while her media of choice is usually ink and pencil, she’s having fun creating art with color cosmetics. “Dior has this new Fluid Stick collection that looks really good on paper,” she says. “Especially these bright red shades, Wonderland and Pandore.” While her original artistic aspirations included being a Disney animator (“I haven’t given up on that dream yet,” she promises), Reardin is quite happy in her current role. “This opportunity was a no-brainer,” she explains. “You can’t really pass it up.”

While several illustrious artists, including Andy Warhol and Cecil Beaton, have dabbled in fashion illustration, it’s a safe bet that none have referenced anything like Disney villainesses and Tim Burton’s cast of characters in their work. But such are the muses of Jamie Lee Reardin, whose Instagram’d drawings attracted the attention of Dior Beauty. “I find [Burton’s] work a little bit dark and tragic, but it’s also charming, and that plays into my style,” says Reardin. “You can see Cruella de Vil in a lot of my work—her cheekbones, heavy eyes, and bony physique.” It helps that her spooky waifs look perfectly at home swaddled in couture, including Raf Simons’s latest collection for Dior, which Reardin had interpreted even before the brand approached her about this partnership. In addition to fictional characters, models and It Girls inspire Reardin’s work. “I bumped into

for a while, then moved to lighter stains, and then found a bit of an in-between.

How did you settle on this particular lipstick? I knew what kind of color and finish I wanted. Because my friends and I want stuff that we can wear for a night out or during the day, it needed to be something you could wear as a strong lip but could also be pressed on like a stain, and was kind of movable as opposed to a chalky matte finish.

Among a legion of cheerleader-like pop singers, Lorde (née Ella Yelich-O’Connor) is something of an outlier. This is partly due to her genre-bending music, which omits mentions of boys and other clichéd sources of teen angst, but mostly can be attributed to her signature look—long, riotous curls and an inky mouth—which walks the line between goth and grunge. It’s this last bit that seemed to make the musician perfectly poised for a beauty collaboration. And now her fans’ prayers have been answered by M.A.C in the form of a limited-edition Lorde micro-

When did dark lipstick become your go-to look? I’ve been wearing a version of this for two-plus years, I reckon. Before that, I wore bright orange. Then all of a sudden I was really into the dark look and wore really strong matte finishes

What are your other makeup essentials? Most of the time, I’ll have a really thin liquid liner, like this one [from her collection]. My makeup artist [Amber Dreadon] and I try to keep my skin really dewy and fresh, so we have these kind of shiny highlighters that we use. For your videos and performances, do you come up with all of those statementmaking looks on your own? I do! For the “Team” [music video] braids, I was initially playing with the idea of cornrows because I wanted something that was tough and sort of tribal to go with an atmosphere that feels like a postapocalyptic world. We did a bunch of hair tests and finally came up with this crazy, triangular risingsun-type Mohawk. And then with the Grammys, I was on Tumblr and saw a model that had these dyed fingers and I was

like, “Wow, I love this.” And it turns out that it was something that Rick Owens‘s wife did, and she’s obviously amazing. I just thought it was strong and quite weird and cool. What do you do to keep your curls looking so awesome? I wish I had a better how-to, but I just have a curl product that’s really hippie that I scrunch in when it’s wet and just leave to dry. It lasts until I wash it. My hair is good when it’s really gross. Just don’t smell it or touch it. How does it feel to be the rebel among your pop star peers? Obviously, I have a pretty strong aesthetic in terms of what I wear and my lipstick and everything, and it’s not a standard mainstream pop star look, so I think people consider me to be this strange, alternative girl. But I love pop music, so it’s exciting that I can be in the Top 40 world but also have a really strong identity. For a long time people thought that as soon as you became a pop star, you needed to have a kind of homogenized, simplified personality, but I’m pretty weird, and it’s worked out.

How did the M.A.C collaboration come about? They approached me because they have a lipstick called Heroine, which is a bright purple, and my album is Pure Heroine, so it felt perfect. And, I’m constantly wearing deep purple lipstick, so it just meshed really well.

Do you remember the first dark lipstick you ever wore? Yeah, it was a M.A.C one—Sheen Supreme in Quite the Thing! It was almost black and shiny, like patent. It was awesome.

If the prevalence of flamehaired models walking the runways at the fall ’14 shows, including Theory, Karen Walker, and Peter Som, was any indication, redheads are having a major moment. Whether you want to become part of the crimson club or already are and simply wish to go bolder, Redken Creative Consultant for Color Tracey Cunningham offers up tips on how to do it right. “Red is an unexpected and fun color,” says Cunningham. “It’s the best way to counteract dullness and warm up the skin.” If you’re ready to go for it, she recommends trying out the most universal shade, a warm red à la Linds ay Lohan circa Mean Girls. Or for a subtle swap, Cunningham suggests picking a hue that’s closer to your natural shade—for blondes that would be strawberry, for light brunettes it’s a vibrant golden red, and for those with dark brown, it’s a deep auburn. Happen to be one of the lucky few to be born with it? Amp up your natural color by having a red gloss applied to dry strands and set under a dryer for 20 minutes. And if model Natalie Westling’s Atomic Fireball-colored locks (as seen at the Vera Wang and Anna Sui shows) have you craving something a little more eye-popping, start with a medium red base, and then layer a brighter shade on top.

Bulgari is primarily known for its posh bijoux and massive, glittering flagship stores. Even the brand’s gem-less offerings, like bags and sunglasses, reference its sparkling heritage with blingy details, and the same goes for its Omnia fragrances, based loosely on various gemstones including amethyst, jade, and the newest addition, Indian garnet. The fiery orange stone doesn’t actually emit an aroma, but perfumer Alberto Morillas pays homage to its namesake nation and color with a blend of saffron, tuberose, osmanthus blossoms, and amber. For a country that counts pink as a neutral and offers up the Taj Mahal as a symbol of love everlasting, the warm, intoxicating scent is a fitting tribute. bulgari omnia indian garnet eau de toilette, $82 for 2.2 fl. oz.,

If you’re one of the approximately 35 percent of hair-dyeing women, then you’re aware of its potential pitfalls—the mixing, the mess, the meh color. Now there’s a better way—L’Oréal’s Super Preference Mousse Absolue. Unlike other foams, which require mixing and measuring as if you’re baking a cake (without the delicious payoff), this mousse does your dirty work by dispensing the ideal ratio of dye to developer via dual-chambered technology. All 16 shades were handpicked by genius colorist Christophe Robin, the man behind Catherine Deneuve’s cool blonde and Isabelle Adjani’s chocolate brown strands, so the resulting hues look less like they came from a bottle, and more like you’re genetically blessed. Oh, and rather than toss the tube post-color, you can reuse it for future root touch-ups.

SITTING IN THE CORNER OF A PRIVATE ROOM AT A TABLE TENNIS CLUB THAT SPRAWLS OVER 13,000 SUBTERRANEAN FEET OF NEW YORK CITY’S FLATIRON DISTRICT, HAILEE STEINFELD SURVEYS THE SCENE, A GRIN ON HER FACE. “WELL, THAT WAS FUN!” SHE SAYS, STRAIGHTENING HERSELF OUT A LITTLE. OUTSIDE it’s wet and cold—the oppressive leaden gray of an Edgar Allan Poe story—but in here it feels like an exclusive bar, only one with hundreds of little orange balls all over the floor, all over the carefully curated midcentury furniture, and, until recently, flying in every direction as Steinfeld, her two publicists, and I engaged in a slightly awkward game of doubles, during which it quickly emerged that Steinfeld is about as good at table tennis as I am at the skeleton luge. But, no matter that she doesn’t know her pings from her pongs: The arbitrariness of the venue doesn’t seem to faze Steinfeld any more than the fact that she had been doing a photo shoot for the past 10 hours or that she only got three hours of sleep last night, because she was finishing the coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints with Asa Butterfield and Emile Hirsch, wrapping at 4 a.m. Even though you can occasionally catch sight of her fatigue through her otherwise omnipresent peppiness, Steinfeld is thrilled to be having this conversation in the first place. It’s a relief to see that even now, with an impressive slate of films behind her and a slew in the works, that excitement is still there, flashing away brightly as ever, just as it was when I first met her, four years ago. Back then, she was promoting True Grit, the Coen brothers film that would earn her an Academy Award nomination. In the time since, Steinfeld has appeared in a new adaptation of Romeo + Juliet as the ill-fated Capulet, the big-budget sci-fi adventure Ender’s Game, and the thriller 3 Days to Kill, with Kevin Costner. This April saw the release of Hateship Loveship, a charming indie in which she starred opposite Kristen Wiig and Guy Pearce; and this summer she can be seen in Begin Again, a film directed by John Carney, who also wrote and directed the runaway hit Once. Deep breath. Also coming up is The Homesman, a period drama set in the mid1800s directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones, with Hilary Swank and some woman named Meryl Streep; The Keeping Room, set during the Civil War; the action-comedy Barely Lethal with Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, and an extremely unfortunate title; and the aforementioned Ten Thousand Saints. In two days, she starts filming Term Life in Atlanta, opposite Vince Vaughn. Steinfeld’s workload might make anyone not named Beyoncé question their productivity, but the breadth and scope of the actress’s work speak to a combination of talent, ambition, and drive that does not come along very often. And while Steinfeld’s T-shirt is printed with one large word, OOPS, there is nothing accidental about any of this. Says McG, who

personally sought her out for 3 Days to Kill: “I mean, listen, I know you get a lot of bullshit and a lot of fluff when you talk to people about other actors, but from the bottom of my heart: Hailee’s future is limitless. She has a good head on her shoulders, she’s capable of the dramatic, she knows where the funny, comedic turn exists; she’s a very special talent, and she’s making good choices. She’s not chasing any one particular breakout opportunity—she’s amassing a body of work that results in everybody coming out the other end saying, ‘Hailee is great.’ And when you do that you position yourself [to be]...I mean, I wouldn’t be as bold as to say Meryl Streep, but I can’t think of a candidate who could make such a run at it. [Steinfeld] does certain things now so fucking well that I can’t imagine her taking that expression of her art form any higher.”

Griffin, is a NASCAR driver). Her introduction to acting as a potential career path: She saw her cousin on TV in a commercial for dolls. “It was just something I thought I would never see—my family right in front of me doing something you think is impossible,” she says. “It was so surreal that watching her made me think: ‘If she can do it, why can’t I?’” Her mother insisted on acting classes and took her into an agency called Coast to Coast, which signed her immediately to their print

division. Being a child model, she says, was fun—Steinfeld appeared in campaigns for Gap, Nike, Guess, and others—but it wasn’t enough, and she started auditioning for acting roles when she was about 10, landing a few parts in commercials and then a lead in the short She’s a Fox, which did the rounds on the festival circuit. At first, neither Steinfeld nor her mom knew about the global search for the role of Mattie Ross in True Grit, but when her mom’s cousin, whose own daughter was too young to read for the role, told her about it, she started rehearsing, despite the fact that her agents were initially led to believe the part had been cast. Steinfeld educated herself over the Christmas break, on the off chance that she might be invited to audition when her agents’ office reopened. “And sure enough, I get a call from the casting director’s assistant,” says Steinfeld. “Two days later, the casting director. Two weeks later, Jeff Bridges and the Coen brothers.” The critical reaction to True Grit, the second movie adaptation of Charles Portis’s demotic novel, in which Mattie Ross looks back from the 1920s on adventure as a 14-yearold in 1878 where she sets out to bring her father’s murderer to justice, was unanimously positive. The role ensured Hailee Steinfeld was suddenly the name on everyone’s lips, as Precious’ Gabourey Sidibe was the year before. Mattie’s relationship with Rooster Cogburn, played by Jeff Bridges, is a revelation. Steinfeld clearly left an impression with Bridges— who is as deliberate and husky on the phone as he is on screen—and he speaks about her with genuine fondness. “I have wonderful experiences with first-time directors or actors because you don’t know what you can’t do. I mean, we haven’t done much better than Citizen Kane, and that was Orson Welles’s first movie. And if you look at Hailee’s work… it’s so fresh. If somebody is going at it for the first time, you can really use that freshness,” he says, in a laconic drawl that is a world away from Steinfeld’s effervescent staccato. “I really enjoy working with young folks because to me, acting is sort of about advanced pretend. When you’re a kid, you’re closer to that spirit. And when you play as an adult you remember that aspect of acting.” He pauses for so long I have to check he’s still there. “I’m not sure if it’s learning so much as being reminded,” he concludes. “I realize now more than I did then what a big deal it was, and what a big deal it is,” says Steinfeld, picking up one of the ubiquitous orange balls and rolling it around in her hands.



“For the longest time, so many people were coming up to me and saying, ‘It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,’ and I would just smile and nod my head. It was in one ear, out the other. Now I realize I would do anything to work with that group of people again—those actors, those directors... my God.” There’s a tiny, wistful pause. “It did take me a while to realize how incredible the experience was, but without a doubt I took in every second of every single day. Having done a few more films, you look back on that and think you just owe so much to them.” Steinfeld is not one to let such moments pass her by. “I’ve learned over the past couple of years to ask questions and know that it’s OK to do that. When I was younger, it just seemed like something you weren’t supposed to do.” On the set of Ten Thousand Saints, which takes place in New York City in the ’80s, Steinfeld would “jump into” conversations between Hirsch and Ethan Hawke, and on 3 Days to Kill, in which she plays the daughter of Kevin Costner’s character—a CIA agent doing one last job in exchange for a drug that could save his life—she and the actor spent a lot of time discussing music. Costner was getting his band, Kevin Costner & Modern West, back together and Steinfeld has been “playing around a bit” herself, writing songs including one called “Warrior” (co-written with Chase Duddy and Tim Myers) that played in the recent Olay commercial during the Grammys, and which she hopes will be released by the time you’re reading this. Steinfeld says she hasn’t mastered an instrument but she did learn how to pick a few notes on the guitar for Begin Again, where she plays the daughter of Dan Mulligan (Mark Ruffalo), a down-on-his-luck music executive who discovers a talented singer-songwriter, Gretta (Keira Knightley). Steinfeld’s role is small, but an important one in a stellar cast. “Hailee was very much one of the reasons I wanted to do it, because it’s



always nice working with talent like that,” says Knightley. “You just think, ‘God, where does that come from?’” In one of the final scenes, Steinfeld joins Knightley’s band on a Manhattan rooftop, where they’re all jamming out. “I’ve never seen anyone who has that kind of natural presence—she can really do anything,” says Knightley. “It’s sort of amazing when you get to do a scene with somebody like that. You can take it anywhere. She is fearless and has this sort of total confidence in herself that is lovely to see.” The feeling, as you might imagine, is mutual. “I think about people like Mark, Catherine [Keener], and Keira; people who inspire me and have been doing this for so long, and the reason that they’re there is to do great work,” says Steinfeld. “No other reason. You know, we’re out there in the middle of nowhere, it’s freezing cold, and we’re working on a very small-budget film, and we want nothing but to create something extremely special. And to have worked with people like that on pretty much every film I’ve done reminds me why I love doing what I’m doing.” Originally titled Can a Song Save Your Life?, the film was among the most coveted at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, eventually selling to Harvey Weinstein for a reported $7 million after a dogged pursuit of John Carney. By the time it closed the Tribeca Film Festival this April,



it had been renamed Begin Again, which is coincidentally also the title of a Taylor Swift track. Steinfeld and Swift are close friends (see their Instagram accounts for photographic evidence of their Christmas party). Steinfeld won’t divulge much about their relationship, but says they met at a preOscar party in 2011 and calls her “an amazing friend.” “I always get the ‘Tell us something nobody knows [about Swift]’ question. And it’s like, we both respect each other tremendously, but we choose to keep our friendship out of the public eye. She’s a really great person and an inspiration to me and many others.” (When I call Steinfeld a few weeks after our interview to ask what she thinks of the changed movie title, and point out the reference, she lets out a little squeal. “That’s why I had the song stuck in my head all day yesterday! I couldn’t figure it out! I was going to call her about it!”) Of course, it’s all very well appearing in the front row (Miu Miu, Prabal Gurung), traveling the world, making movies in some of the most rarefied company in the industry, and braiding TSwift’s hair on the weekends, but what about the whole being a regular teenager part? Are you a regular teenager, Hailee Steinfeld? “Yes. I am.” A glance around the empty room. “Yes. I am.” Really? “Yeah, absolutely,” she affirms. “It is about being honest. People live different lifestyles, and I always find an equivalency: If I’m filming or going to an audition, it’s [the same as] my friends going to school or dance class. I think everyone lives the same way and encounters the same sort of life.” I ask if what happens in her movie life informs her real, 17-year-old life. “Absolutely, and sometimes it’s the other way around—what happens in my life when I’m at home and not working, I really analyze and take to my work. For me, not going to high school every day, not going to the proms and the homecomings and shooting them in movies is weird because I don’t really know what it’s like.”

STEINFELD TRAVELS EVERYWHERE with her mother, who is her manager and legal guardian. “As strict as my mom is,” she says, “I have so much freedom. Everything I do, she does with me and I couldn’t imagine it any other way.” That travel seems almost constant. The films are lined up one after the other, like planes waiting to take off at JFK. “I have moments all the time where I realize how far away I am from home and all I want is to curl up in my bed and watch a movie, light a candle, and be alone.” She gently tosses a ball across the room, and watches it roll under an armchair. “But as often as I have those thoughts, I try not to take anything for granted, because I’m loving it.” There’s a quick, almost conspiratorial look. “I’ve always thought it would be really cool to work in a restaurant as a waitress or at a coffee j a c k e t b y d k n y, s h i r t b y s e e b y shop or something. And I think, ‘Maybe c h l o é , j e a n s b y m a r c b y m a r c I’ll go do that.’” The grin lapses, just a j a c o b s , b e l t b y z i m m e r m a n n . touch. “And then it’ll be written into a h a i r : r e b e k a h f o r e c a s t a t t h e script or something....

of my acting heroes is Sam Rockwe ll. I just heard this stor y about his audition philosop hy, and it’s really been wor king for me. He says the attitude you have to have walking into the room is not, “fuck you,” it’s “fuck it.” It’s out of your hands; just go in and do your job.

My first job was a walkon in one of my mom [actress Olivia Hussey] ’s films, when I was 9, but I don’t really count that. My fir st actual job was an indepen dent hor ror film that was ter rible. I should scrap that. I should use The Secret Life of the America n Teenage r as my fir st actual job. My family’s go-to

movie is T h e B i r d c a ge .

I love the scene where Hank Azaria is dancing to Gloria Estefan while wearing a red wig and Robin Williams says, “You look like Lucy’s stunt double.” I’d love to have my own motorcy cle. The only time I was the cool kid at school was when my dad took me to school on his bike. Then I went back to being the deeply uncool gir l who ne ver spoke.

Shay Mitchell may star on a show called Pretty Little Liars, but off-screen, she’s comically honest. Sitting outside of Erewhon, a West Hollywood health food store that’s about as L.A. as it gets, she leans across the table wide-eyed and whispers, “I think they have a $40 ice cream here.” She straightens back up and shrugs: “But, whatever, they could sell pig shit and I’d probably eat it if it would help my skin.” // There’s no good way to put her claim to the test—even if that particular pork by-product were available here, her skin doesn’t need any help—but this kind of statement demonstrates why Mitchell has not just fans, but fanatics. In a notoriously self-serious industry, she’s learned to take herself only just seriously enough. // From its beginning, PLL sparked a social media hurricane, and Mitchell’s harnessed the power of the storm like a pro. She has more than three million Instagram followers, an eponymous lifestyle blog (“Goop is a huge inspiration for me, even though I can’t afford a damn thing on there”), and she live-tweets the show every Tuesday using the hashtag #PLLAYWITHSHAY. Though a commitment, it was also a no-brainer. “I mean, hello!” she says. “If I could have watched The O.C. and been able to talk to Mischa Barton throughout the episode, that would have been so cool!” // After growing up in West Vancouver, Mitchell left Canada at 17 and headed to Thailand to work as a model. “I’d jump on the back of motorcycles to get to castings. I didn’t know where PREVIOUS PA G E : I was going. I didn’t speak the lanJACKE T BY IRO, RINGS BY M A S O N S TA N L E Y. T H I S guage,” she recalls. “Living there was PA G E : O V E R A L L S B Y a huge shock, but it helped me grow in PA I G E D E N I M , T O P B Y RAG & BONE. so many ways. It helped me affirm

that I could go anywhere and be OK.” After Thailand, Mitchell modeled in Hong Kong, then made her way to Toronto. When she booked the role of Emily Fields in Pretty Little Liars, she moved to Los Angeles alone. “I’d been there, like, five times before,” she says. “I remember standing in front of the CAA building as a teenager and thinking, ‘I will be here someday!’” Not everyone she met along the way shared her certainty, though. “At my first acting class, I sat down after doing my monologue and some guy came up to me and said, ‘Honey, you’re too pretty. You could just be sitting shotgun in some guy’s Ferrari.’” Mitchell shakes her head. “Fuck that. I don’t need to sit in some guy’s car. I’ll buy the Ferrari. Get it on your own, and no one can take it away from you. No one can take this away from me, because I did it.”

Right around the time that Sheryl Sandberg launched her polarizing “Ban Bossy” campaign in early March, the team behind the off-Broadway production of Heathers: The Musical was putting the final touches on its adaptation of the 1988 film featuring the bossiest clique at Westerberg high school—and possibly in cinema altogether. Other stage productions of girlgang-centric cult hits will follow: Jawbreaker will embark on a club tour later this year, and both Mean Girls and Clueless are said to be in production.

It’s not hard to see what it is about these films that could translate so well into musical form. High school itself is a theater, with daily micro-dramas that rival—at least in the minds of those involved—Shakespearean tragedy. But what is it about tight-knit gaggles of girls reigning over the halls of their high schools that so enrapture audiences? Does the continued relevance of these films mean that we are not only disinterested in “banning bossy,” but head over heels for tyrannical bitches? “Heathers was wonderfully subversive because it told the truth—and it was saying, ‘These things are wrong, these things must be fixed,’” explains Larry O’Keefe, co-writer of Heathers: The Musical. “Teen cliques are enacting caveman rituals. High school is probably one of the purest expressions of our tribe thinking.” So while we may happily quote each film’s reigning crew (and maybe even emblazon those quotes on T-shirts and jewelry), each of these stories ends with its original hierarchy dismantled and belongs, ultimately, to its underdog. If I were to wager a bet for the reason that these stories are being gleefully re-hashed and championed for a new generation of viewers, it would be this: Elitism has never been less cool, and as a result, crews like the Heathers and the Plastics are more absurd, and hilarious, than ever.

Q+ A:

the coolhaus girls Natasha Case and Freya Estreller are the architecture aficionados and ice cream enthusiasts behind Coolhaus, a growing mini-empire of, yes, architecturally-inspired ice cream treats. Kate Williams catches up with them in Los Angeles to talk about their new book (out this month from Houghton Mifflin) and how they turned one undriveable postal truck into a mini-empire.

You both had full-time jobs in completely different professions when you decided to start Coolhaus. How did your friends and family react? Natasha: I’d gotten my undergrad degree in architecture, then my master’s, and was working, so everything was making sense before this. My parents are traditional Jewish parents, so it was like, “intervention.” Freya: I was working in real estate, and having a sort of quarter-life crisis. When we bought the ice cream truck on Craigslist for $2,900, it was towed to my mom’s house. Her neighbors were complaining! Then we were making the ice cream and cookies in her kitchen and accidentally set the oven on fire, and she was like “Freya, what the fuck is this? Get out!’”

E! ENTERTAINMENT BY KATE DURBIN Los Angeles-based author and performance artist Kate Durbin is most likely to show up to a stuffy literary event in a custom dress by Peggy Noland (who's outfitted everyone from Rihanna to Miley Cyrus), or a re-creation of Anna Nicole Smith's infamous clown makeup moment. And not unlike her style, Durbin's latest book, E! Entertainment, takes its cues from iconic reality TV episodes. Each chapter is a "channel" focused on a different reality show theme (think: "wives" shows and "fairytale wedding" specials). In Durbin's hands, the tension between friends Lauren and Heidi elevates petty O.C. arguments to the status of serious literature. E! Entertainment is a skilled dissection of TV tropes, the veneer of Hollywood, and the way we construct our own reality. GABBY BESS

Freya: Right now, we’re in more than 2,000 stores in 40 states, and the goal is to be in 10,000 stores in the next couple of years. We’ll try to give Ben & Jerry’s a run for their money. Like, why not?

How much experience did you have making ice cream? Freya: Basically…zero. Natasha: That’s what the cookbook is about: There’s a little barrier to entry with making ice cream, but once you know the basics, you can go crazy. Have you made any flavors that didn’t work? Natasha: We tried to make a Waldorf salad ice cream with blue cheese and apples. Freya: As it turns out, you can’t use aged cheese in ice cream. The business has grown so quickly. What’s next? Natasha: We just launched bars and pints. The Tahitian vanilla bean bar that’s dipped in salted caramel milk chocolate and rolled in pretzel has already sold out.

The name Coolhaus is an homage to Rem Koolhaas, and several of your ice cream creations are also named after famous architects. Has Rem ever had one of your ice cream sandwiches? Natasha: I think so? I’ve been in contact with his son, Tomas, and I know he’s had it several times. Freya: Frank Gehry had one. He looked at our truck, and said “You sure are making a lot of money from us.” So we were like “Does he mean, from his and other architects’ names, or because we’re parked in front of his office?” So, what did he mean? Both: We’ll never know!

LONDON GRAMMAR CROSS THE POND WITH A VENGEANCE The U.K. trio London Grammar are seated at a rickety wooden table at one of Brooklyn’s finer brick-oven joints, staring at a barely touched margherita pizza, and trying their best to form complete sentences. Having just finished an Australian tour, the group flew in to play Late Night and some intimate gigs. They have jet lag. Bad. But when The National comes up in conversation— and the fact that the brothers Dessner are only a subway ride away from where we’re sitting— the band perks up. “Don’t tell me that,” jokes Reid. Turns out the two groups shared a billing on the popular BBC Two show Later… With Jools Holland recently, and they’re still a little star-struck. “You expect Matt to be quite a serious man,” says Rothman. Reid jumps in with her best American male accent: “He was just like, ‘Hello, there.’” She laughs, her eyes sparkling. “I feel like if I mention them enough in interviews, they’ll have to acknowledge us.” London Grammar came together at the University of Nottingham and were signed just before graduation. “It was pretty much the luckiest break—about two weeks before we started taking our final exams—and also the biggest distraction,” says Rothman. Between classes, they’d gather in the guitarist’s garage to write. “Wasting My Young Years”

came about during one such session. “We were sitting there in this freezing cold garage,” recalls Rothman. “Hannah was triple-layered, with electric heaters pointed at her, and she was playing the song on a little shit keyboard. It’s funny now when I think about it, but it was obviously a fucking amazing song. The lyrics immediately permeate and stick with you.” To try to classify their music is to want to coin a new genre (dusk-pop?) or at the very least commit hyphen abuse. This might be due to the knot-inthe-throat immediacy of Reid’s lyrics, delivered in a husky timbre that lands like a plane after a turbulent flight—breathtaking and applause-inducing. Since posting their first track, “Hey You,” to YouTube in 2012, the band has watched their debut full-length, If You Wait, go platinum in the U.K. While it’s still early, London Grammar’s steady ascent begs the question of whether rockstar shenanigans like throwing TVs out of hotel rooms are in their future. Major laughs. “We did put a TV on top of our tour manager once,” he admits. Rothman explains: “When he has a drink or two—well, a drink or 14—he sleeps and you cannot wake him up. It’s extraordinary. So one day, Dot took the TV off the wall and put it on him.” MELISSA GIANNINI


NIKKI NACK TUNE-YARDS Merrill Garbus, the fearless performer behind tUnEyArDs, crafts crazy-quilt songs that resemble lost recordings from a very funky island civilization. On Nikki Nack, tUnE-yArDs’ third and finest album, there’s call and response and drumcircle thumping, hacked-up synthesizers, and liquid bass lines, all clattering accompaniment for Garbus’s emphatic yawp. Like labelmates Vampire Weekend, Garbus infuses her music with the polyrhythms and syncopated beats of the global south, picking and choosing as she goes along. (But Garbus opts for mud-caked boots over boat shoes.) tUnE-yArDs’ last album, 2011’s excellent w h o k i l l, glanced toward the dance floor, but never quite committed. On Nikki Nack, Garbus firmly stakes her claim. The album bursts with tracks like “Sink-O,” all stutter-steps and dancehall toasting, and “Water Fountain,” a playground chant transformed into something kaleidoscopic and unpredictable. But Garbus has a soft side, too. “Wait for a Minute,” a kitchen-sink R&B cut with stunning high notes and a dollop of introspection, proves a welcome breather on an album that rarely stops to catch its breath.

PALO ALTO Filmmakers mine the rich territory of teenage angst all the time, but rarely does it feel as true-to-life as it does in 27-year-old director Gia Coppola’s debut feature, Palo Alto. The film, which is based on James Franco’s short story collection of the same name, follows an assortment of interconnected friends, April (Emma Roberts), Teddy (Jack Kilmer), Fred (Nat Wolff), and Emily (Zoe Levin), as they go about their lives—soccer practice, babysitting, parties, court-ordered community service. But it’s the way that their internal conflicts meet that propels the film forward—April and

Teddy shyly nurture a mutual crush, though April has become involved with her single-dad soccer coach (James Franco). And Fred, Teddy’s volatile best friend, pushes the “easy” Emily past her limit at a boozy house party. What Palo Alto captures most impressively is the particular energy of being this age, when consequences still feel light-years away. MR

A sociopathic punk is killed in the seedy Philadelphia hood of God's Pocket, the namesake setting of Mad Men star John Slattery's feature-length directorial debut (and an adaptation of Pete Dexter's 1983 novel). Leon Scarpato (Caleb Landry Jones) is struck dead by a coworker at his construction job, and the incident is explained away as a freak accident. Leon's mother, Jeannie (Christina Hendricks), senses something's amiss, and enlists her husband, Mickey (Philip Seymour Hoffman), to investigate—

a task he half-heartedly undertakes between boozing, peddling contraband meat, and betting on the pony races with his buddy (John Turturro). Meanwhile, the alcoholic neighborhood reporter, Richard Shelburne (Richard Jenkins), is also checking out the case—or rather, Mrs. Scarpato. Ultimately, the film uses this storyline to evoke the simultaneous tragedy and black humor inherent in such a tough, insular community. The execution of this mixed tone doesn't always feel spot-on and the characters aren't quite as robust as the cast deserves, but God's Pocket does have its clever moments. And the actors, the late Mr. Hoffman in particular, are a pleasure to watch. LISA MISCHIANTI


THE DOUBLE Poor Jesse Eisenberg. It's something of a downer to observe the electrifying interpreter of trailblazing agency, his only pleasure gajillionaire Mark Zuckerberg courtesy of his co-worker (in 2010's The Social Hannah (Mia Wasikowska), Network) channeling a lowly, whom he stares at longingly perma-hunched office drone. while she pointedly looks the In The Double, Richard other way. Simon's world is Ayoade's stylish adaptation rocked with the arrival of a of the existential novella new colleague, James Simon, by Fyodor Dostoevsky, who just happens to share Eisenberg's Simon James his appearance, although his trudges among the cubicles charming personality is quite at a dingy government the opposite. Even though the film's pacing threatens to slow him down, Eisenberg decisively finds his mojo. ASHLEY BAKER

The film Night Moves gets its name from the boat that three radical environmentalists plan to explode as a protes t against an energywasting hydroelectric dam in their town. The y are a rag-tag trio: Jos h (Jesse Eisenberg) is a quiet guy who works on an organic farm, Den a (Dakota Fanning) is headstrong former city girl, and Harmon (Peter Sar sgaard) is an ex-Mar ine whose recklessness becomes obvious whe n the group is too far in to turn back. In the day s following their protes t, it comes to light tha t not everything has gon e according to plan, and the way in which eac h person interprets their role in the outcome is a fascinating look at how tunnel vision can alter one's perception of responsibility.

TOKYO + KANAZAWA it's time to jump- start your lifelo ng love affai r with japan . by diane vadin o

21ST CENTURY MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART This SANAA-designed art museum may be the country's best, with permanent rooms courtesy of James Turrell and Leandro Erlich, plus terrific ongoing relationships with emerging artists like Shimabuku, who in March wrapped up a yearlong photographic investigation of the Noto Peninsula.

The wedge-shaped Watari Museum of Contemporary Art, designed by Mario Botta, regularly hosts hot-ticket exhibitions—whether from Japanese artists like dotmaster Yayoi Kusama or international up-and-comers like French street artist JR.

When the Issey Miyake boutique opened in November with a lab-inspired aesthetic that incorporates colored aluminum and raw concrete, the Tokujin Yoshioka-designed space joined the rest of the neighborhood's retail architecture classics, from the Herzog & de Meuron Prada and Bruno Moinard's Cartier to Alexander Wang's sleek three-story flagship, which opened in October.



Without blooming cherry trees to draw crowds, this cent rally located oasis is one of the city's most peaceful plac es. It's easily accessible from top-flight shopping in Shin juku, like big-time department stores Isetan and Takashimaya, worldfamous bookseller Kinokun iya, and Tokyo's second Ope ning Ceremony location, followin g the original in Shibuya.

Lost in Translation's frontand-center hangout remains a must for anyone interested in (a) incredible nighttime city views or (b) seeing where it all went down for Scarlett and Bill. The rooms below are equally covetable—plus you can see Mount Fuji from the treadmills on the roof-level gym, which stocks Aesop products in its well-appointed changing rooms.

KENROKU-EN SUSHI IPPEI Sushi lovers will find it hard to go wrong in this city on the Sea of Japan— but Ippei, with its tiny, 10seat counter and Englishspeaking proprietress, is our favorite.

DORMY INN You won't find a cheape r, cleaner room in Kanazawa, and there's a great ons en, or traditional Japanese bathing complex, on its 14th floor—ideal for pos texploration lounging.

The nationally revered Kenroku-en, one of the country's sanmeien, or "three great gardens," offers a master class on how trees and shrubs can be arranged to relax . everyone who visits them

POINT A TO POINT B: The best method of transport between Tokyo and Kan azawa is by train, which tak es around four hours. Tho se in a hurry can take a one -hour flight from Tokyo to Komatsu followed by a 40-min ute bus ride to Kanazawa.

Friendly Kanazawa packs some of the country ’s bes t features into an easily walkable city, including the Kenroku-en garden, a world-class art museum, and even a sublime 16th-centu ry castle—so elaborate that it reads more Architectural Digest than Game of Throne s. (Of course, those 400-ye arold moats were built to kee p somebody out .) Consider this a welcome time-out after Tokyo’s sensory overload— one best spent walking through Kanazawa’s Higash i Chaya district, home to a spectacular assortment of tea houses and ryokans, or Japanese guest houses.
