If you’re in NYC and in need of a mani (I know I am), head over to 365 Broadway to have Teyana Taylor and Christina Rinaldi give you some custom tips.

Uniqlo isn’t just based in Japan — it’s downright ubiquitous over there. We’ve even shopped at a Uniqlo in a Tokyo subway station! Regardless, it’s still amazing that the retailer is donating $25.6 million to the Japanese Red Cross Society to aid in disaster relief.
Agyness Deyn’s little sister Emily Deyn has decided to step away from her sister’s shadow and put herself in her own fashion spotlight. Last year, Emily and her best friend Aliyah Hussain designed a one-off t-shirt featuring the Queen of England which the duo gave to Agyness as a birthday present.
