These days, it seems as if Monday through Friday is a whirlwind of work, school, traveling, and making excuses for why we don’t have time to workout. So when the weekend arrives, we only have one thing in mind: R&R. But you don’t have to resort to sweatpants to kick back (even though it’s super tempting). Do yourself a favor and spice things up while still maintaining a casual-cool vibe, and enlist Living Doll LA to help! Their take on weekend wear pretty much guarantees adventure ahead: we love how their style incorporates a new perspective on original staples.

The Stella Cross Bottom shirt, for example, adds a fresh twist to the plain white tee, and their grey Cardigan paired with ripped denim is a surprisingly awesome duo that’s perfect for exploring that new art shop downtown. Add in a killer kimono, an always reliable black hat and booties-made-for-walkin’, and suddenly your Saturday just got a whole lot better – and more stylish. Whatever you have in store, you’ll be glad your sweatpants remained safely amongst the “organized” pile of clothes in your apartment.

Obviously, we could never come close to replicating the iconic work of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Idolized by girls and guys alike (understandably), the SI Swim covers have long been a coveted spot for aspiring models worldwide. So, we decided to make this dream come true for a handful of the lovely ladies of Nous Models in an exclusive photoshoot for Nous Zine titled – what else – Nous Illustrated!

As a token of our love and appreciation for the famous SI Swim signature looks, Nous Illustrated is a fun expression of the growing talent here at Nous Models that we are amazed by every day. Captured by one of our favorite photographers Bogdan Morozovskiy, this featurette aims to inspire you to go for the gold. We hope you love it as much as we do!

A favorite photographer among our models- and all of us here at Nous HQ- is the one and only Lucas Passmore. His photos are unmistakable: think simple, vulnerable and tastefully sexy all at the same time, which is no small achievement! A master at bringing out the strongest attributes and fierce confidence of every girl he works with, when he’s not testing you can find Lucas shooting for some of our favorite brands like Rails and Chloe Oliver or on the pages of magazines like Bisous, Angeleno, Cosmo or even Maxim!

Lucas’s funny, vibrant and energetic personality is incredibly infectious to everyone around him – ironically, it’s kind of a contrast to his sultry photography style. His ability to capture beauty in it’s most pure form continues to amaze us, so we can easily say that our obsession with Lucas isn’t ending anytime soon (but, we’re more than okay with that).

Thank you Lucas! You have taught our girls so much and provided them with valuable experience that has helped them be the successful women that they are today. We’ve seriously enjoyed the past few years of working with you, and are looking forward to many more to come.

Here at Nous, we’re always on the lookout for new talent of all kinds. Sometimes we find them, and sometimes they find us. This summer, we were lucky enough to be approached by Yazzi Williams, a photography blogger who was in town from Australia. When it comes to a test photoshoot, Yazzi is pretty much a one stop shop! A talented photographer, makeup artist and stylist, we were so thrilled that she wanted to work with us. Bringing out soft, feminine qualities in the girls, and capturing perfect golden hour moments, her work is exactly what we were looking for. During her short stay here, we were able to coordinate eleven beautiful photoshoots. All of our girls loved her, and learned so much from the experience. Yaz, this one’s for you! Thank you so much for all of your hard work; we can’t wait until your next trip out here! Here’s a look at some of our favorite moments. To see more of her amazing work, or if you have any questions for her, check out her blog, Love Yaz Photo.

Weekend 1 of the 2014 Coachella festival has wrapped, and a few of our girls were front and center for it all. Alexis Ren, Monica Ollander (arriving by helicopter, no less), Brianna Gilchrist, Laura Harrier, and Cameron Richardson were just a few of the thousands of people that flocked to Indio, CA for the three day event. It was beyond awesome, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.

NOUSzine went to Makeup School at Make Up For Ever to learn a thing or two from the pros. We made our way to Make Up For Ever on Robertson Blvd to watch as head makeup artist, Talia Cich, gave Monica and Brianna the perfect looks for spring and summer. Bright eyes and bold lips, oh my!

Talia went for a colorful look for Brianna which included a nude shadow, teal liner and a bold orange lip. Products from the Make Up For Ever Aqua Collection were used to create this look.

For Monica, Talia went with winged liner and bright berry lip. Watch as Talia translates this season’s beauty trend to a look perfect for day to night.
