TATA HARPER REVITALIZING BODY OIL
I’ve always been a St. Ives kind of girl from the neck down. I’ve rarely given a second thought to what cream I slather on my arms, all the while obsessively carefully perusing various beauty departments to find the facial cleanser that will change my life (at least for the week). It was on one such occasion that I stumbled upon Tata Harper’s revitalizing body oil. The oil’s luxurious texture quickly absorbs into the skin without leaving behind any slick residue, just super soft gams—it’s a non-oily oil. Made with all natural ingredients such as Grapeseed oil and Arnica oil, the line has been receiving rave reviews from the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Harper, a newcomer to the beauty scene, grows most of her ingredients on her 1,200-acre Vermont farm. The line of luxury artisanal oils is produced in small batches with everything from the packaging to the formulations done in house. Just one night with revitalizing body oil was enough to turn me into a convert.

LINDSAY DEGEN, KNITWEAR DESIGNER
I visited with knitwear designer Lindsay Degen at her Brooklyn studio last month. The young designer's whimsical Claes Oldenburg inspired lingerie collection has been getting lots of attention, with features in WWD, Teen Vogue, and T Magazine.

EMMA ISHTA, IMG
"I started modeling a really long time ago; I’ve been doing it for eight years—since I was twelve or thirteen. My mom’s hairdresser basically asked if he could take some photos of me and I did it for free. I was young at the time and was like, “yeah I want to be a model!” So I did it and it ended up being on posters around shopping centers in Brisbane. Afterwards, my mom took me into an agency because I hadn’t been paid for it and it was a big campaign that they used for a lot of things. So I signed with an agency in Australia and then got scouted by IMG when I was fifteen. After I signed with IMG they sent me to Paris then New York after I graduated high school. I moved here around 2009 and I have been here since then."
