Ly Ngo, associate art director
Ly is probably the strongest example here of how Nü Woman can still be very trendy and encompass a strong sense of personal style. Though, honestly, I get the sense that Ly has been dressing this way regardless of the recent resurgence in '90s/Tumblr-core chic (and I mean that as the utmost compliment). She always wears all black, with amazing eyeliner, perfect red lipstick, and the most unbelievably impeccable hair. Honestly, I didn't know that hair that perfectly placed existed outside of the 1940s.
Chloe Daley, editorial production assistant
Chloe here is the Parisian gamine of the Nü world. Her style is very playful with a vintage vibe, but as you can see, her proportions (the loose, turned-up jeans with a Danny Zuko dye job; that insanely cool vest) are spot on. Chloe can often be found in large, flowing, floor-length gowns and coats to match. But, the next day, she'll be in a cleverly cropped pair of pants and a turtleneck. She doesn't have the same unflinching consistency that Susan and Ly have, but she has such great taste that her outfits still always look awesome. Like me, she tends to veer away from traditionally "sexy" dressing, and says it's important "not to be afraid to be frumpy (cue the turtleneck)."
Well, as you can see, I am still behaving ridiculously and acting like a literal clown most of the time. But, at least my outfit is Nü, right? This particular all-white ensemble is inspired by two surprisingly Nü women of the '80s: Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct and Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. You would never think the '80s could fit this lifestyle philosophy, but there are a few select moments that really work, mostly involving monochrome and huge, huge proportions. I still haven't decided if shoulder pads have a place here, but there's a good chance they do, as long as you keep at least two arm's lengths from any scrunchies in your vicinity.
