ELLE’s Women In Music Video

If you’ve spent more than 2 minutes reading this blog, you’ve probably realized how much I admire Gwen Stefani. When I first heard she was shooting an ELLE cover after NYFW, I was excited to see the result. Then I found out there were multiple covers, all with amazing women musicians.

I love this video ELLE filmed interviewing each of them about what got them started in their careers, who inspires them, and what they love most about making music:

It’s truly inspiring to watch.

Spring 2011 Fashion and Editorial Internships

I’ve been taking it easy and focusing a bit more on my personal life since fracturing my foot late last month. But I’ve managed to find a bunch of awesome spring internship opportunities to share with you. As I always say, for anyone trying to break into the fashion or publishing industries, interning is THE BEST way. Do as many as you can, as early as you can! I got my start in the magazine industry by doing an internship, and got a freelance editing job about a month after it ended.

Don’t forget to follow the application instructions. : )
