Twenty-two-year-old Lily Kwong is the sort of girl who could inspire a girl-crush in just about anyone. A Columbia student majoring in sociology and urban studies, this pretty young thing is also a fashion blogger and an Elite model. Oh, and she's fluent in French, a cousin of Joseph Altuzarra, and a regular feature on Garance Dore, too. She cites Loulou de la Falaise and Patti Smith as style icons, but her look is all her own.
Kreayshawn, a.k.a. Natassia, is a semi-anonymous self-described "rap beast" and a "wavy baby with a camera in the right hand/blunt in the left hand." This Oakland resident is influenced by Hype Williams and Missy Elliot, and the whole too-cool-for-school bad-itude definitely shows on her blog. She's an aspiring videographer who spent her childhood on tour with her mom's punk band, is deft at both a video camera and a mike, and—oh yeah—came out with the jam for summer. Whatever this badass ends up doing, you can count on it to be 100% fresh.
