Top Male Models, “Girls” Star Andrew Rannells and More Go All Out for Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2016

Never pose with a supermodel,” quipped Jeffrey Kalinsky on Instagram a few days before Monday night’s big event.

Of course, our VP/designer fashion director was mugging with hunky model Eian Scully when he posted it—they were in rehearsals for the 13th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares fundraiser at Manhattan’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, during which all manner of hotties in the best current-season fashion would help drum up support for ACRIA, the Hetrick-Martin Institute and Lambda Legal—three leaders in the field of LGBT advocacy, tirelessly fighting for progress and benefits for the community.

Staz Lindes on Punk Rock, Santa Monica and Keeping It Real | Behind-the-Scenes Images and Q&A

staz1Images by Carmen Daneshmandi

Staz Lindes is one of the hottest models in the game and recently did some work for us–and we love how it turned out. But there are several layers to Lindes.

Below, scope behind-these-scenes images from Staz’s shoot photographed by our homie Carmen Daneshmandi, which, in our opinion, deserve a wing in an art museum. At least a passageway.

Interspersed therein: our Q&A with Lindes about her experience modeling for Nordstrom, what her punk rock band, the Paranoyds, is up to (she sings and plays bass)–and her musical and real-talk-laden journey through life.

Araya Nicks: Model of the Moment and Rising Singer | Listen Up!

SID1503093383_013

Where have you seen Araya Nicks before?

Perhaps you know the SoCal stunner as the face of Nordstrom’s summer shorts campaign. Or maybe you remember her wearing electrodes on her head and negotiating a vine-covered labyrinth in Chris Brown’s “Don’t Wake Me Up” music video?

Here’s a new context in which to view her: solo recording artist.

Nicks is currently working on her own album as a vocalist, and we’ve been turning up on the bus ride to work lately to her cut “One Good Reason.” Check that out below–and get the low-down on her favorite jams, movies and travel bucket list.

Ariel Beesley, a Behind the Scenes Chat with our Model of the Moment

ariel-beesley-the-thread

When Los Angeles-based model Ariel Beesley isn’t posing with a blow-up swan for Nylon magazine, she’s singing sweetly forlorn ditties with her ukelele at music festivals and on small stages. And when she isn’t doing either of those things, sometimes she’s modeling for Nordstrom. Lucky us! Check her out in shades by Illesteva and Oxydo. And here she is in the season’s best floral pieces, cool summer dresses and hot trends.

And here she is in an exclusive video, plucking the strings at our shoot—and telling us all about her favorite tunes, her grocery store hit list and her on-the-rise career—as a in-demand model and as a neo-folkie songstress.
