#WCW: Zoë Kravitz, Queen of Coachella



As the entire world knows, Coachella is happening this week, which is generally as much of a fashion show as an actual festival.  This year has been an especially stylish one, and Zoë Kravitz is #1 on my personal best dressed list. Daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, she's proof that two outstandingly attractive, talented people make an absolute masterpiece of a human. I guess cool can be genetic, which is why she radiates it so effortlessly.  

Zoë is on the cover of Marie Claire this month, her film The Road Within is out this week, and her super interesting and awesome band, Lolawolf, has been touring.  So basically, she's killing it right now. And she's probably really busy killing it, so I'm glad she was able to grace the desert with her presence in this mint fur that I am completely obsessed with. 



Hey Zoë, lemme borrow that coat?

#WCW: Kate Nash


Kate Nash is my personal #WCESEDF: woman crush every second every day forever. She honestly crosses my mind several times a day. "What's Kate Nash doing right now? What is her hair doing today? Does she even know that we're celestial soul mates? I wonder if my friends on Spotify think it's weird that I only listen to Kate Nash?" More of an obsession than a crush, to be honest. There are many things that make Kate Nash an amazing cool-girl goddess, but I'm going to cover 3: her style, her music and the fact that she is the literal embodiment of girl power. 




1.  "Fashion is art just as much as a piece of music is art. Seeing the two come together and work as a harmonised vision is thrilling." An artist through and through, she is a walking visual art piece. Her style is best described as colorful, complex and brave as hell. P.S. Her instagram was a beautiful place to be during NYFW. 



2.  Simply put, every piece of music Kate Nash has ever released has instantly become my new favorite thing that I've ever heard. Her music gets better and better, and is consistently artful, honest and really smart. Also, just really fun to listen to. Her latest album, Girl Talk, has everything that I've ever needed. Listen to it from start to finish, and you'll understand. 




3.  Kate Nash has your back. Not only is she a girl powerhouse, but she wants every woman everywhere to have the opportunity to be a girl powerhouse as well.  From her music to her involvement with programs and foundations that work to help girls and women all over the world, everything that she does is saturated in female empowerment. Into it. 

Love you, Kate!

#WCW: 2015 Kim Kardashian


When Kim Kardashian cut her hair into a long bob, I was shocked, and in love. When she took even more off, I decided I needed a haircut.  WHEN SHE WENT PLATINUM, I THREW MY PHONE AND SCREAMED because my mind was literally blown.  I never want to stop looking at her.

Slytherin-chic. Kim's been on a steady incline since her terry cloth sweatsuit/belly chain days, but her style has gone through the roof since the new year.  I am obsessed with looking at her. Now, we all know Kanye has a lot to do with her style improvements. Controlling? Who knows, I'm thinking probably not really. I think the world can give her a little credit for once. People like to write her off as a talentless reality star, but lets get real. Kim's a business woman and stays making the right moves. Her high fashion taste may be newly influenced, but her ability to stay relevant is consistently all her.  So maybe Kanye is filling her closet, but DAMN, Kim is filling her clothes.
 


Plus, Kim and Kanye look amazing and happy together.  They smile an awful lot for people who consciously try not to smile. Married with children looks good on them! So does black on black on black on black.  TBH my WCW is their little family. North is already a shade-throwing little star herself:



That face though. I feel you, Nori. 

P.S. Thank you for distracting the internet from "the dress" for a while with your new 'do, Kim.

#WCW: Amy Poehler


With the the recent finale of Parks and Rec, I'm seriously mourning the loss of my fictional best friend, Leslie Knope. If everyone radiated a little bit more Knope in their day-to-day, the world would be a much more kind and productive place.  And if we don't up-the-Knope for ourselves, we should do it for each other!  Everyone needs a Leslie-like, militantly inspirational homie to push and support them. But, maybe a little bit less political. So basically, Amy Poehler.  Homegirl is a force of positive energy and I'm in love with her...

… because the most crush-worthy quality is humor. And intelligence. And definitely kindness. Also, style. Being completely gorgeous and having an extremely high natural eyebrow arch is also a thing. Seriously, if she wasn't always smiling, she would look mad as hell. There's a certain fierceness that comes along with an angry set of brows on a very happy face. Perf.


Do yourself a favor, and binge read her book, Yes, Please. Comedy or self-help, I'm not really sure, but it's easily the most quotable memoir in recent history. Obviously hilarious, and obviously everything you need to get you through life. She kills it. 

Best summed up as: Be awesome to everyone, but especially to yourself! I can get behind that.


"Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life."  She should know, her best friend is TINA FEY.  They are a prime example of a ride or die power duo that has seriously pushed and pulled each other up the ladder of success.  The key to success is support and collaboration, not being a jerk.  Why compete with someone, when you can just host the Golden Globes together and be amazing and have fun? And Baby Mama was one of the most underrated films of all time. There, I said it. "Bitch, I don't know your life!" is my most used movie quote. Mostly in my inner monologue though, because it's just as much rude as it is relevant.



I really do, Amy!

Oscars 2015- Fave Fashion Moments

In a theatre packed with actors, musicians, and filmmakers, it's no surprise that Oscar night is always full of glamour. Last night was no exception. The Oscars are my favorite award show as I always come out of it feeling really inspired. I love when people of influence use the seconds they have on stage to motivate and inspire change (I'm looking at you Patricia Arquette). Of course, I'm also moved by the glitz and glam, so here are my fave looks of the night and the people who rocked them. 

First on my list is Emma freakin' Stone in Elie Saab Haute Couture. So much sparkle. So much yellow. So much elegance. Homegirl nailed it. 

I love this Saint Laurent dress on Dakota Johnson. I also want bangs. 

This pearly Calvin Klein Collection dress looks heavy, but Lupita Nyong'o (one of my favorite ladies in Hollywood) carries it so well. Shine bright like a diamond pearl. 

Kiera Knightly in Valentino is my boho(ish) dream. I'd like to think I'd look this amazing while pregnant. 

Naomi Watts in Armani is hot. That's all I'm gonna say about that. 


I was unsure of how I felt about this Givenchy on Rosamund Pike at first. But the more I saw her, the more I fell in love with this rosy creation. It helps that Rosamund is one of the most beautiful ladies in Hollywood. Total woman crush. 

It's a boy! A very dapper boy. I love this navy blue Alexander McQueen suit on Eddie Redmayne. He was like a giddy little boy during his acceptance speech and I loved every second of it. 

What were your fave looks of the night? Have any that you absolutely hated? Comment below and lets talk about it! 

Peace & Love,
Gwen

#WCW : Jennifer Lopez



This may be an obvious one, because duh, but J.Lo is a #WCW now and forever.  Everything she's ever done, from Ben Affleck to judging American Idol, has infinitely benefitted from her involvement. She's the owner of original iconic booty and her infamous green Versace dress from the 2000 Grammy Awards has it's own Wikipedia page.  I would argue that she gets even more beautiful with time, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't age at all.  Although, there is something to be said for pretty much every phase of J.Lo. 



...my personal favorite is her Puffy era.



...or maybe fly girl Jenny.

Either way, every version is iconic.

Playlist Live 2015 - Photo Blog

We're back in the office after the crazy weekend that was Playlist Live. It was 3 days full of work, parties, fantastic weather and roller coasters and I'm still not over it. We had a booth setup in the main stage area and we had an amazing time meeting all of you who shopped with us! While I sit here and reminisce, check out some of the photos below to see what the Jawbreaking squad got up to! 


Thursday morning we had some issues getting our UHAUL trailer, but we were FINALLY ready to roll around 2PM. After more on-the-road drama we got to Orlando around 1:30 AM Friday morning. We blame Mercury.



Can't stay mad at Mercury forever though because Florida is so nice in February. 


After setting up our booth on Friday, we were ready to get down at the first VIP party. Just imagine how long it took us to get ready though. Five girls in one bathroom ain't no joke. 

Side note: this Jawbreaking squad plays hard and works even harder. We partied 'till the AM, but were ready to roll for the first official day of selling at Playlist on Saturday morning. Except...


...THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN. 



After waiting forever to get Starbucks and running through crowds of fans, we made it to our prime location near the main stage at the convention center. Thanks Playlist for always taking care of us and shoutout to Local Wolves for this rad photo! 


At Playlist Tristate, we had some bomb empanadas and no joke, we crossed our fingers that Orlando would treat us well. 
They came through. #blessed 


 After a crazy/fun day of vending, there was another party on Saturday night sponsored by Fullscreen! It's a great night of dancing, hanging with our Youtube friends, and dancing some more. Still can't feel my legs. 


How cute is our Customer Care Manager, Margaret in the back of our trailer on the last day of Playlist?! We sold out of a lot of shirts so we were coming back empty. You guys can shop! 


On Sunday night, Universal Studios was open after hours for creators and fans. No joke, we rode the Rip, Ride, Rockit coaster THREE TIMES. Roaming around a park at midnight was a highlight. Especially when you have a squad like this to take selfies with. 

I'm exhausted, but Playlist was such a fun weekend, I can't even complain. If you were there, comment below and share your pics! We want to get to know your lovely faces!

Peace & Love,
Gwen

#WCW: Mindy Kaling


Actress/comedian/screenwriter/director/producer/published author/style icon/overall babe, Mindy Kaling pretty much does everything.  She also IS everything. Strong, cute, hilarious, smart, laid back but totally chic at all times. Most importantly, she's completely relatable while being 100% girl power and such a posi role model.  I want to be her best friend, but I also want her to be president and think that she would be excellent and possibly overqualified in both positions.


I live for her getting ready Instagrams and fully appreciate that she posts about basically everything that she wears down to her nail polish.



Who's Tom Brady? Pretty sure the REAL winner of the Super Bowl is the one who got to smell Matt Damon while simultaneously pulling off lime green.
