‘Geek’ New style for Crystal Lowe

This past summer AF did a story on local actress Crystal Lowe on her sexy hot style we are used to seeing her on the silver screen. Crystal now stars as Toby Nance, a whiz kid and right hand of the Evan Cross (Niall Matter)the lead of the new Space show Primeval: New World. Crystal has traded her sexy clothes, smoldering looks and sassy dialogue  for plaid shirts jeans and well same sassy talk I guess, just more ##Q##Geek##Q##.


Crystal plays the part so well that it would be hard to picture this past Hawaiian tropic model any other way. This goes to show that style, when ##Q##owned##Q## by the wearer, can be what you make it.

Vogue is ready to invest in giving talented young designers the opportunity of a lifetime in their “fashion fund” challenge. The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CDFA) has teamed up with Vogue for the last nine years in helping young designers build their business and pair them up with industry moguls that will mentor them for success. Each year hundred apply and only 10 finalists will be chosen. The panel of judges includes vice president of CDFA Diane Von Furtensberg, J crew’s Jenna Lyons and Vogue’s own Anna Wintour. No pressure there.

DIY Fashion: Club Chrissie

“Club Chrissie is a DIY/talk show done in a way that you have never seen before”, Chrissie says. “Its part Wayne’s World, part Pee-wee’s Playhouse, inviting viewers to add their own creativity to projects, so it fits perfectly into Pharrell’s concept of ##Q##i am other##Q##”.

Oribe Apres Beach Spray – Chris Funk


Oribe – Après Beach Spray

By Chris Funk


This product is great for creating that, grungy, dirty, slept in, piecey look. Beware though less is most definitely more. This product can get quite waxy if too much is used.


There are a couple of different ways to use this product. The first is, if you have naturally wavy hair, and it just dries too soft, clean and kind of fluffy… after washing, towel dry and then brush it though.
