Emilia Vucinic The Lions (Los Angeles)

What did you bring to the shoot?
I brought my favorite pieces. My Miu Miu sunglasses, I’ve had them for a long time and I’m still in love with them. I really like their shape and colour and how they sit on my face. My Balenciaga Ceinture cutout boots, they can make anything look cool, and a black, long blazer from TwinSet! 

The worst fashion decision you’ve ever made?
Back in high school when I used to wear Uggs all the time. 

What is a look or style you wish you could pull off?
I wish I could pull off those small cat eye sunglasses, I’m afraid to try, haha.

What is one product or brand you’ll always recommend?
I’ll always recommend going to the pharmacy and getting something that’s chemical and alcohol-free. I love Nuxe lip balm, I put it on my lips and around my eyes before bed.  

How would your family and/or friends describe your personal style?
They would say that my style is simple and classic and too black but I’m trying to get out of black phase. It’s really hard though… 


Devin Mingo Photogenics LA (Los Angeles)

What did you bring to the shoot?
Topman bomber jacket, necklace, and my sponge brush.

How would your family and/or friends describe your personal style?
Always evolving and mine entirely.

What is a fashion trend you hope makes a comeback?
Turtlenecks and various ugly sweaters.

What is the best fashion/beauty tip or trick that you know?
Exfoliate and always iron your clothes.


Jamillah McWhorter The Lions (Los Angeles)

What did you bring to the shoot?
Red lipstick, Adidas, leather-ish jacket. The lipstick makes my outfit pop, I just like the Adidas a lot. It was love at first sight. And the jacket just completes whatever outfit.

What is a fashion trend you hope makes a comeback?
Slinky silk dresses.

What is the best fashion/beauty tip or trick that you know?
Drinking coconut water for your skin.

How would your family and/or friends describe your personal style?
Usually they will say “it’s you!”. I wonder sometimes if that’s good or bad.
