Get to know our very nous model, Megan Martin! ~

Where are you from?

Beautiful mountains of Roanoke, Virginia.

What inspires you the most?

My beautiful mother.

What’s been your greatest achievement (so far)?

Getting my nursing degree (RN). Oh, & owning 60+ bikinis.

Where is the most beautiful place on earth and why?  

If you ask my friends and family, they’ll tell you I fall in love with every place I go.  I feel like there is a different beauty to be found in every place I visit.

Have you overcome one of your fears?

I swam with sharks last week for a shoot!!! P.S. I HATE SHARKS!

How do you kick back and relax?

I wake up early in the morning before anyone else–brew some green tea & read. It’s the best “alone time.”

How would your best friend describe you?

Weird. Very weird. Like super weird. But loyal as a golden retriever (a good golden retriever). 😉

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?  

While I was shooting in the exumas last week, a large pig wouldn’t stop chasing me –keep in mind I was in a bikini & frolicking/running around the island frantically.  I honestly just think he wanted me to take him home. 🐷🐷

If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?  

Family time.  Family time is such a blessing… life is short– so making memories with the people that love you most could not be any sweeter.

When you eat a pack of Skittles, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first?

I love them all. I don’t discriminate. Try heating them up in the microwave for 25 seconds 😏😏  (makes them gooey & amazing—don’t judge).

Wow! Emily Hall has worked her runway magic again in the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Australia! After taking part in the New York, Milan, London, and Madrid shows last year, it’s only natural that Miss Hall would dazzle the world-down-under with her trailblazer vibes!  With a superstar presence, Emily booked a total of eight shows.  We’re so proud of you baby girl!

To view her journey, take a peep below!:

Albus Lumen

Surrounded by a naturally lit courtyard, first on Emily Hall’s list was walking down Albus Lumen‘s runway. Emily appeared radiant in her fabulous opaque black maxi-dress, making this line one to talk about! Albus Lumen’s message is to put forth value towards the confidence in simplicity. It’s name is Latin for “white light,” as it is not weighed down by trends. They also draw strength from detailed minimalism, providing both comfort and elegance in all their designs. I mean, what’s not to love about a fashion line with principle? We dig it!

Sass and Bide

Sass & Bide

Also, for her second show on day one, how sophisticated is this dress worn by Emily for Sass & Bide? With an eye for incoming trends, Sass & Bide has evolved themselves into a highly creative Australian designer brand, influenced by the bold and individualistic types of women. Emily looked absolutely fierce this season on their runway, blurring the lines between edgy and classic in her attire. We can definitely see this item being sold out in the near future, as boss ladies everywhere will love the way they look and feel in this style!

Hansen & Gretel

Day two began on a high note with the au courant Hansen & Gretel 2017 AFW Runway Show. Light and whimsical with a youthful flair is the perfect way to describe Hansen & Gretel’s latest line, pertaining a style that excites our inner-dolls. Emily wore a mildly-off-the-shoulder flower print dress that captivated her audience, skyrocketing the bar for next season. We can definitely see these trends doing well on the ecommerce market, and are very excited upon their release! For those that fear putting down all their money at once, they offer bargain layaway rates that will make your life much easier! I mean, what an original thing to offer? We totally just joined their fan club. 😉

Project NextGen

Project NextGen

 

Continuing into day two, Emily had the privilege of appearing in the Project NextGen Runway Show. According to the official Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week website, Project NextGen is “is intended to provide a platform to discover and support emerging Australian fashion designers.” Therefore, “by connecting these gifted individuals with an experienced panel of industry insiders, the program mentors Australian talent to help them hone a broad range of skills by elevating their profile through industry connections and ongoing business support.”

How cool! It’s always refreshing to see the fashion industry extend their hand out to the dreamers. After seeing Emily walk in this show wearing a stylish black leotard alongside a detailed red choker with fringe, we can’t help but be excited for where fashion is heading (it’s so cute!).


Zambesi

For the final show on day two, Emily walked for Zambesi, wearing three separate designs. For her first appearance, she wore a jet-black-long-sleeve-cover-up over a black slip. The cover-up is sheer in design, appearing airy and weightless in movement (perfect for breezy nights in the city). It’s an absolute must have for the woman on-the-go, aiming to look chic, without all the fuss!

For her second appearance, Emily mesmerized the audience in a tan mesh top, a pair of loose-fitting black shorts, and a lengthy black sheer jacket. Mesh has definitely made a comeback this year, and now we’re reminded why! It’s the perfect add-on to a simplistic tone of style, adding that extra “zest” that we all long for when putting together an attire.

Lastly, for Emily’s final appearance in the Zambesi Show, she rocked a multi-color embellished dress with an illuminating white-sheer underlay. Our fashion forecasters say that we are to see much of the material used in the underlay in the future, and we’re not complaining! We love this modern design, as it is as pretty to look at as it is unique.

Ginger + Smart

Day three started out on a bright note, with Emily walking in the Ginger + Smart 18 Collection Runway Show. In this show, Emily stole the stage in a long and vibrant blue dress, with an added flair. For accessories, she came equipped with a bright pink shoulder bag, adding a dramatic contrast, providing the perfect “pop” of color. This line aims to embrace a joyful, optimistic celebration of women in the arts, and Emily couldn’t have been a better fit for this role, as she is a true work of art!

Romance Was Born

Day Three continued on with Emily rocking out in Romance Was Born‘s fashion show. This line is definitely the most edgiest in terms of design, having each of their models evolving into a complete embodiment of living art. Romance Was Born’s goal in design is to create  clothing that is more than just a beautiful garment, but an immersive cultural experience that pushes to provoke an emotional response. After taking a peek below at the attire Emily wore for their Australian Fashion Week runway show, we are feeling all the positive feels!

VMajor

Wrapping up day three, Emily did not go out quietly. Nope, she stole the stage again like the superstar she is, wearing two groundbreaking designs by VMajor. According to their designers, Victor Zhu and Nicole Lin, this line is “designed for independent and stylish professional women all over the world. It is about setting a standard, highlighting the international aspects and mixed identity of the brand and reflecting beautiful, confident, masculine yet feminine, modern women.” We can definitely see their message being shared through what Emily was picked to wear, as she looks absolutely chic!

In her first outfit, Emily flaunted a baby blue jacket over a patch-printed silk dress. This innovative approach to business attire is stimulating, as it leaves behind the outdated belief that to be professional, you must wear all black. If you love what you do, why not add a spice of color to wardrobe? It will make your day that much brighter!

In her second attire, Emily provided us with the denim kick we have been obsessing about over the past couple years, yet VMajor added a new spin: a denim fringe-like dress! How neat! This new take on denim is bound to make shopaholics out of all of us. I mean, how stunning does Emily look? We’re speechless!

Leave it to bombshell Kendall Harris to turn what most would look at as a misplaced set of leafy items into a super-glamorous beauty editorial! The artistic genius behind the camera is Lorraine Young, who has once again outdone herself, as Kendall appears absolutely original, organic, and vibrant!

This unique approach to beauty is something to admire, with a risk-taking force that brings out not only the lit-from-within glow from the model, but from the artist themselves. Each intricate placement of item/color pops, making it aesthetically pleasing to glance at. Art isn’t art unless it makes you feel something, and after looking over this shoot, our love for Spring has been revived!

All in all, we couldn’t be more obsessed with how this shoot has turned out. Take a peep below to see why!:

Where are you from?

From a small town in Maryland called “Bel Air.” It couldn’t be more different than Los Angeles.

Where is the most beautiful place on earth and why?

Of all of the places I’ve seen, I’d have to say Madrid, Spain. The architecture, people, weather, everything is just so pleasing to look at and be around. I’ve never felt more at home in a place  that was miles away from my own.

How do you kick back and relax?

Netflix, apple cinnamon candles, and a little bit of white wine at the end of the night is my favorite way to unwind after a long day.

Have you overcome one of your fears?

For a long time, I feel like one of my biggest fears was being afraid to be myself. It held me back a lot but now I’ve grown to be a lot more confident in myself and the choices I make. You’ve only got one life so you might as well live it the way you want to!

What are you most proud of?

My decision to move across the country to LA. A lot of people thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to move out here, but I think it’s important to do things in life that scare you a little. I didn’t know anyone or how I was going to do out here but that only gave me more motivation to really push myself in such a new place. I couldn’t be happier that I did!

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?

Anything that comes from an animal! Definitely a huge animal lover. 

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Whole Foods sells these maple vegan donuts that are to die for. I’ve bought them so much that the cashier’s always know what’s in my bag when they ring me up, it’s horrible!

Which emoji would best capture your essence?

Definitely this one 💁🏾  ! I think she’s so sassy and fun, which is quite like myself.

Who are you most envious of—real or fictional—and why?

Elizabeth Taylor. She was a woman of such natural class, talent, and not to mention of one the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. Plus, she was born with extra set of eyelashes which made her eyes look even more stunning. Who wouldn’t be jealous of that?

Whose fictional wardrobe do you want most?

Hillary’s from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Even if she was just lounging around her house, she was always dressed to impress.

What’s one goal you definitely plan on achieving this year?

I want to travel to at least two different countries. Seeing the world and experiencing different cultures is super important to me, so I definitely want to make that happen.

Summertime bliss is the only way to describe Grace Lynn‘s newest shoot with LADYGUNN Magazine. LADYGUNN celebrates those that shape, and push the rules both on the page and in the field, and we felt this shoot was a good representation of that! With nature as the back fall, Grace stunned her surroundings with her post-grunge wear, adding a contrasting dynamic, and thus creating multiple works of art!

This beauty also brought forth an element of style that strongly reflects the wave that is taking over summer twenty-seventeen. Peachy colored eye pallets are all the rage, and Grace rocked it perfectly, displaying a soft youthful glow.

Love doesn’t even begin to cover it on how we feel about Camryn & Moe‘s latest shoot with photo guru Megan Taylor! Megan is an artistic genius when it comes to establishing light & organizing coloration in her photos. Each shot feels to hold an elaborate story paused in time, which is something we deeply admire!

Additionally, this shoot brought into perspective some of the upcoming styles for Summer 2017. It seems that off-shoulder crop tops, deep v-neck sundresses, and denim with fridge is the go-to for all your seasonal festivities (How cute!). The chosen makeup style also reflects the current trend that is sweeping the world: highlighter! These girls absolutely stunned by illuminating/enhancing their naturally gorgeous features, making vixens out of both of them.

Something else to note is the trend of embellished chokers. Our style forecast says that one will see a lot of this throughout the rest of 2017, and we’re not complaining! It’s a unique advancement from the 1990’s strappy chokers, modernizing an old-age fashion that we have long adored!
