On The Wall: Alexandra Cervantes

Take one look at Alex’s art and you’ll feel as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole to Wonderland. This Southern Californian babe attends art school in San Francisco, and her thoughts and dreams are clearly depicted in her art. Her style is equally captivating: a mix of 80’s and 90’s (think 16 Candles, Bowie, and Clueless) with hair that seems to change with her mood from bright colors to faint pastels. This gal’s awesome style and wicked cool paintings definitely make her a presence on your Tumblr dashboard.

Coachella Q&A: Lights

We caught up with Lights at Coachella to have a quick Q&A after her live set on Saturday. We also could eat lasagna forever, back astronaut as second career choice, and are in fact inspired by wine. Are we besties yet?! Pick up her album Little Machines and browse through our photos from her live set now. 

The year is 1977. A Vogue spread pairs fur-coat cladmodels (including Jerry Hall) with C-3PO, Darth Vader and some Storm Troopers. Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Dawson Leery—whoops, we mean Sarah Michelle Gellar & James Van Der Beek—are both born, and so is the original Vans Slip-on.
