Whenever Lorraine Young sets her mind on something, you know it’s going to turn out amazing! This time, the creative guru took our girl Khloe under her wing, and the results couldn’t have been anymore magical!
This shoot’s primary focus is on skincare, turning what is usually a dreary daily task, into a process of creating avant-garde works of art. In each shot, Khloe captivates her onlookers by appearing tranquil, luminous, and sincerely flawless. Lorraine has such a spectacular eye for portraiture, and we are ecstatic for all of her future projects!
Love what you see so far? Take a look at the full shoot below!:
At Nous we’re welcoming back the sunny weather along with the best surprise: Khloe modeling a new collection from 31 Bits! This ethical fashion company has been a crowd favorite for years, producing luxurious fair-trade jewelry that is handmade with love in Uganda and Indonesia by skilled local artisans. We recommend getting on top of your accessory game by pairing their Collar Necklace with the Minimalist Necklace. We fell in love with their stackable Native Rings— they’re the perfect, understated finishing touch for any Spring outfit. But don’t take our word for it: keep scrolling to see how Khloe wears 31 Bits jewelry.
22 year old, Khloe Elkins, being an international model and all, flies from city to city and has featured in campaigns for the likes of Guess, and Abercrombie & Fitch. We have been appreciating the Californian native’s curves and natural beauty via Instagramfor a while now but on a recent sunny LA afternoon, we got the chance to get up close and personal with the gorgeous model.

In transition to fall styles, we treasure the gems that smooth the journey. Even on the beaches of Malibu we feel a cool in the breeze, as autumn picks up its pace. Which are we coveting to be exact? Accessories to take us from day to night, coats that speak statements, & jewel tones that mirror the changing season.
Long are the days of decorating a shoebox pink and red and anxiously awaiting for it to be filled with your classmate’s (and secret crush’s) Valentines. But even though you may have outgrown those elementary school surprises, the youthful spirit of this holiday can still be incorporated into your -dare we say it- adult celebrations. After all, growing up means getting to do something much more fun and flirty anyways.
We dare you to indulge in what YOU like on the day devoted to L.O.V.E. A fanatic of books? Make a date with an indie bookshop in your town and hide away in a velvet chair reading Nicholas Sparks for hours (just don’t forget to stash a ton Kleenex in your purse). A nature girl? Grab a disposable camera and head to that new hiking trail you’ve been wanting to explore; this old-school option will give you a much needed vacation from your current iPhone camera app while adding in an element of surprise, making it that much more fun to develop later.
Whatever your choosing, this photoshoot by Ericka McConnell starring Khloe will inspire you to tap into your inner-child and fulfill all that your heart desires. Its whimsical, romantic undertones are the perfect backdrop for daydreams of love this Valentine’s Day- whether that means for yourself or a special someone. And if all else fails, that Michael Kors shoebox in your closet could make for a nice D.I.Y. project.
Most, if not all, photographers we love have a signature style. Dana Pennington is no exception – his shots stand out for their uniqueness in terms of light and contrast. From serene gardens to edgy alleyways to even a simple room, his backdrops always seem to make for captivating canvases on which our girls stand out. We love the way he illuminates each model in his shots, immediately drawing the audience’s eye on them. Check out some of our favorites below. Thank you, Dana for your awe-inspiring work!
In the dead of winter- is there a better way to pass the time than to dream of summer? In your day dreaming endeavors… we’ve got the best of the best inspiration for you: a batch of some of our all-time favorite swim looks!

Any nick names?
My family and best friend call me KoKo.
Describe your everyday style.
Admittedly very thrown together. Whatever I find that’s comfy and somewhat matches 🙂
Models who inspire you?
Cara Delevingne has always been my favorite. I love that she can do VS one day then high fashion the next. I also love Candice Swanepoel and obviously the classics like Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, and Paulina Porizkova.
What excites you most about being a model?
I love the idea that I get to be the art. I am the photo before it is taken, and I get to express different people and styles that all kinds of people can relate to.
You have one day to pack a suitcase and travel anywhere in the world. Your first stop?
Stuck between India and Amsterdam- two totally different cultures that I am so interested in!
Tell us an unexpected fact about yourself.
I have a really weird obsession with avocados. I will put them on or in pretty much everything I eat, cut them up and eat them like oranges sometimes 3 or 4 a day! Also I will mix them up and use them as a hair/body/face mask.
