Samantha Giordano is a NY-based designer and founder of the freshly launched women’s label Dolores Haze. Her prep-school meets garage-grunge style caught our radar while she walked past a piece by Emily Noelle Lambert at the Lu Magnus gallery in New York’s Lower East Side.  What we liked about her casual demeanor and cute frock was that neither were screaming for attention and yet they both made us come to a full, slack-jawed tire screech halt. When not modeling her designs for gallery-goers, the Columbia and Parsons grad is hustling between her home in Chinatown, sketching in her studio in Bushwick, meeting with seamstresses in Manhattan’s garment district, and sourcing fabrics in London’s garment district. (photo by Ashley Lake)

A pink beanie and turquoise high-tops say I’m the art world’s miscreant purveyor of chuckles and flare. Deal with it. When he’s not in his b-boy stance in front of a Richard Serra prow-like sculpture, he’s making tight videos and DJ’ing parties of insubordinate romp. (Photo by Xavier Aaronson)

There isn’t a color that Pari Dust can’t work with. Here she is garbed in a vibrant Stella McCartney sweater at the Konrad Lueg exhibition at the Greene Naftali Gallery in NYC. (Photo by Tylor Marquis)

Adele was surprised when we spotted her at the British Museum. She studies product and furniture design, carries a disproportionate black backpack wherever she goes and sports a yellow sheepskin vest that she “borrowed” from her mother who is a fashion teacher. Just babe’ing out, no big deal. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

I don’t know much about shoes but I know enough to pay attention to a girl’s flats if they feature cat ears and whiskers on them. Alexa Chung keeps it simple at the New Museum. She was spotted right before she hopping on Carsten Höller’s interactive Slide installation. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

Tainá combines my squeamish fascination for Louise Bourgeois and the undefeatable excellence of a little white dress. Here she is with one of Bourgeois’ colossal arachnids at the Museum of Modern Art in São Paulo
