WHAT’S NOUS

During the past couple weeks, it’s no secret that ‘June Gloom’ has been making its rounds throughout the city of Los Angeles. Yet, as Flaunt Magazine began their poolside chats with Nous Models, the sun couldn’t help but shine brightly. For Flaunt, all of their previous #poolaroid chats have been exciting, but this particular event brought something new to the table: commemorating Flaunt Magazine’s upcoming 20th birthday.

Therefore, having just celebrated Nous Model Management’s 20th anniversary this past February, we shared their enthusiasm. Being in business for two decades is a great achievement, and our girls, Aliya , Kendall Harris, and Moe Stuck, were eager to celebrate alongside Flaunt. The timeless, “Would You Rather,” game was the honorable poolside activity, touching base on all things from birthdays, fantasy parties, and their best wishes for Flaunt’s big 2-0.

To find out what Aliya, Kendall, and Moe’s answers were, as well as glimpse at some snaps from their cheerful day under the sun, take a look below:

FM: Best ever bday present you got and worst.

What’s our thoughts on Barbara‘s latest spread with Alison Su, you ask? Well, let’s just say it’s nothing short of breathtaking! Alison absolutely killed it with catching Barbara’s sporty chic side (dressed in the latest trends from Lime & Vine), all while using the contrasting element of California sunlight to capture her more softer glow. I mean, who else looks this flawless on a basketball court?

Summer has only just begun, but we’re already looking forward to Fall after seeing Lily McBeath‘s recent lookbook for English Factory. Lily appears enchanting in each shot. We are obsessed with their fall color palette!

 In review of English Factory’s ’17 Pre-Fall line, they have successfully paved the way for the days ahead of us, adding a contemporary spin on our favorite classic designs. Whether abstract or figurative, linear or floral, the English Factory excels at being timeless. It is their goal to create a lifestyle brand that emphasizes the beauty in simplicity, while creating clothing that can be worn time after time.. and we must say, they are doing a great job at creating their vision.
