Emily Ratajkowksi, the girl with the luminescent skin, has had her hands full lately. The queen of the multi-hyphenate, a businesswoman-actress-model, has conquered everything from clothing (her line Inamorata probably dots your Instagram) and hair (consider those bombshell ads for Kerastase) to writing (she’s spent the last year working on a collection of essays). Today, she adds another industry to her resume as she launches her venture into skincare as the creative director and partner of the celebrity-beloved sheet mask company Loops. 

Ratajkowski fell in love with the label while test-driving a bevy of beauty products after being stuck being indoors during COVID-19. “I used to not do sheet masks and now I have gone full circle and I really like them,” she says.

June Ambrose on Hip-Hop, High Fashion, and Her New Puma Partnership

June Ambrose’s impact on fashion is undeniable: the dominance of streetwear, the influx of hip-hop performers in high fashion campaigns, and sneaker culture can all be traced back to the template that Ambrose created in the 1990s. As the stylist for high profile artists like Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, and Diddy, she connected music with the world of European luxury, dressing her clients in looks that remain iconic to this day. Missy floating through the “The Rain” video in a glossy patent leather, Diddy walking through a halo of lights in his shiny suit in “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” and Jay-Z’s bevy of supermodels putting on an impromptu show during “Change Clothes”—the list goes on. The imagery would change the relationship between fashion’s old guard and rap’s power players, and go on to influence a generation of designers who grew up immersed in MTV.
