Making a name for herself under Carine Roitfeld, the editor-in-chief of French Vogue has perfected the art of styling jeans with sky-high heels, well-tailored outerwear and the perfect tee. With an underlying boyish vibe, Alt knows what works for her and exudes confidence in the most basic arsenal of leather motos, tailored blazers and casual tees.

The Smiths are taking the world by storm. 2015 was a breakout year for Calvin Klein models Lucky Blue and Pyper America, and now Daisy Clementine’s star is on the rise. As the lead guitarist of the Smith family band, The Atomics, and a model for Vogue Italia, the LA-via-Salt Lake City dweller is working hard, keeping cool and having fun.
We learned more about Daisy and her talented siblings, whose bond is just the first thing that makes them exceptional.
You were scouted and signed by NEXT at age 14—just five years ago! Was modeling a surprise or something you had prepared for?
Modeling is something I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember. I can remember being four or five years old and telling everyone I was going to grow up to be a model one day. I used to bring magazines into the bathroom with me and practice the models’ poses in the mirror!
What has happened since?
I moved to Los Angeles with my family a couple of months after I graduated high school in the summer of 2013. Since moving here, I’ve been modeling full time as well as working on music for my family band, The Atomics. I’ve been able to travel to some really amazing places and meet creative and interesting people. I absolutely love living in Los Angeles. The weather is always so nice and I get to do what I have always dreamed of doing here.

Gimlet-eyed Kristin Yamada is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one), and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.
Gala Gonzalez (Amulu.com) always looks so incredibly effortless and cool. Today she makes the perfect example of how an easy look composed of casual separates and a cozy coat can be expertly elevated with a great bag and smart footwear. Suede has been a popular theme for handbags, and this rich brown bucket with fringe detailing is particularly covetable. Backless loafers too are a rising trend; the dark black looks sophisticated and sleek paired with her more muted ensemble. Throw on your favorite pair of dark-lens sunnies and you’re Fashion Week street ready!
