Rankin, Rankin, Rankin…My oh my, how you seduce us with your photographic lens.
We did a little snooping and discovered that he is one of the founders of Dazed & Confused Magazine. Genius! So, it only makes sense that he would be driven to open up a gallery in one of the hippest parts of LA in his honor.

This week, Rankin Gallery presents Caroline Saulnier (an unbelievably talented make-up artist) in an exhibition that follows the release of a collaborative book of beauty and dynamic visuals shot by Rankin himself.  Follow the jump for some additional details and incredible eye candy…

MIDORI’s Fashion’s Night Out Roundup

This past Thursday, we went to check out the parties, storefronts and street style that Fashion’s Night Out is famous for in LA.  All the boutiques of WeHo, Melrose, Robertson, and the Beverly Center got dressed up and glammed out to bring fashionistas from all over the city.

Being first time attendees, we weren’t quite sure what to expect and, of course, LA traffic was insane for this event.  First stop was Robertson Blvd., where music from the in- store DJ’s could be heard blasting from blocks away. The streets were filled with nominees for “Best Dressed” while food trucks hugged the curbs offering the best in street cuisine.

When we spotted 6 inch stilettos and sequined pants, we knew we were in the right place. Everyone from model types, couples, kids, and men in their dapper, tailored suits were spotted.

After hitting up Melrose and peeping the party crowd at Fred Segal, we headed to one of the afterparties at The Standard in West Hollywood, which was crazy crowded and full of fashion glitz.

Coupled with the VMA’s, the streets were on that night!  We were obsessed with all of the unique street style, food, music and art that FNO brought to LA, and we can’t wait for next year!
