St. Vincent’s “New York” is Everything

St. Vincent (Annie Clark) is amazing. She is smart, funny (just go watch all the promo video clips for MASSEDUCATION on her Instagram), clever, and her video for “New York” is the best. Screen caps below. I can’t wait for her new album to come out.

I saw her live a few years ago in Calgary for Sled Island–hands down one of the best live shows I have ever been to in my life.

Seeing her perform “Cheerleader” live  at Sled Island has become an anthem of sorts for me when I’m just done with the the cheerfulness and from-the-sidelines attitude that the patriarchy so often demands from us.

I feel like St. Vincent, Janelle Monaé, and of course Beyoncé are probably the trifecta of women I would follow into the future.

“New York” is such a brilliant song — it loops perfectly, and next thing you know, I’ve been listening to it for hours…

NYFW Fall 2016 Catwalk Diversity Spotlight: Sophie Theallet

Runway diversity for fashion week–any year, any city, any season–is a notorious problem in the fashion industry. Thin, white models reign supreme, with little signs of change. The Fall 2016 collections, however, have had a few head-turning collections where diverse casting was clearly taken into careful consideration. Well done and three cheers for these New York-based designers!

SOPHIE THEALLET

Omg this show was like a dream come true—a very racially diverse cast of models, ‘plus’ size models…very, very exciting. There were models with natural hair, all skin tones, and you definitely couldn’t consider any of these models’ presence on the runway to be token. Sophie Theallet, you’re officially a Closet Feminist dream girl now.
