Style Profile: Chloe Greenhalgh-Adam

First and foremost to quote Amy Poehler on Mean Girls, Chloe aka 'ChloBear', "keeps me young!"  She's as fun as she is intelligent (and when you read about her occupation you'll get the idea.)  Chloe is witty and wise beyond her years and I'm completely young at heart so even with our decade age difference we were instantly connected and laughing together non-stop, always looking forward to work when working together at Her Tern Boutique in Anchorage!  She recently launched her blog, cashmereandcoldbrew.com, and just like everything else regarding Chloe, I was so impressed and uber excited to share her talent and knack for creative styling with THE WORLD!

Style Profile: Garrett Lawrence Taylor

From the moment I met Garrett on tour I instantly gasped "YAS STYLE!" and wanted to be his friend.  Garrett is the epitome of class with total true to character style.  He is an absolutely magnificent Conductor + Musician but on the side I honestly believe he should teach pop-up classes to those wanting to define and perfect their personal style around the world.  Garrett's instagram feed is filled with so much inspiration and wonder, it's an absolute delight to follow.  

When asked of a quote or motto that defines his personal Garrett shared two Oscar Wilde quotes:

"One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art."  +

"You can never be overdressed or overeducated."  

Both are so fitting and true of Garrett!

Dream Job Profile: Jasmine Alleva

dreamjobintro.jpg
image c/o: @jasminealleva

image c/o: @jasminealleva

Name:
Jasmine Alleva

Hometown:
Anchorage, Alaska

Occupation/Agency Representation:
Professional Model for dep Models (which is my mother agency), currently modeling with Vivien’s Model Management in Sydney, Australia. 

image c/o: @jasminealleva

image c/o: @jasminealleva

When did you get started in the industry?
Gosh, maybe when I was around 17 or 18 and started dabbling in working with photographers in  my hometown.

What was the biggest challenge in getting started?
Professionally, the exposure was extremely difficult. Alaska is so isolated from the places where going into my industry is even a remote possibility. I had a lot of help from Thuy Vo, but it was still like trying to navigate a corn maze while blind-folded and crawling.

What did/do you do to overcome doubt/stay inspired to continue to pursue your dream?
Staying ahead of doubt is like staying ahead of pain. Treat it before it gets out of hand. Of course, I’ve lost control a few times, but it’s actually so nice to hear feedback and realize that I worked tirelessly for this and it isn’t as out of reach as I think it is. But yeah, like others I watch Tony Robbins videos and read Joan Didion and remind myself that I’m a badass. Reading helps a lot - it makes me feel less alone.

image c/o: @jasminealleva + @mclarenray

What are your top three modeling experiences?
1. Getting cast for Cosmopolitan Magazine the first day I was in Sydney (which was a horrific experience). It was the silver lining in the shit storm cloud. 

2. My first shoot back with my favorite team in Anchorage, which is Thuy Vo, Kristin Forbes, and Maria Camacho. I love all female teams because they’re comfortable and fun, but they’re my favorite because we laugh the entire time. I missed them terribly when I went away for the first time. 

3. One time I had to work with a boa, which was weird, but I felt like Cassandra from Wayne’s World (and she’s a babe! Schwing!) and I don’t know why, but it was like, empowering. 

Most embarrassing modeling experience?
Anything having to do with runway is embarrassing and I try to avoid it like the plague. My first runway experience was TERRIFYING. I really plodded down the runway and nearly twisted my ankle. Everyone gasped and I was like,”shit”... AUDIBLY. I’m not graceful or poised and heels are just... no. 

Favorite place to travel?
Chicago. That’s all.

Describe a typical day when on a job:
I get up around 7:30am, make tea, check my email about 70 times, check Instagram (part of the job), drink my tea and get ready. I’m a stresshead, so I usually sprint out the door with worry that I’ll miss my bus or something. Then I take the bus and public transport (if I’m feeling particularly late; I’ll reluctantly take an Uber) and meander my way around cities with my phone open trying to find castings. At castings, they take my comp card, maybe a few pictures, and we exchanged blah blah blahs. By the end of the day, I’ll have gone to around 4 or 5 castings or go-sees (meetings) and will be MAD exhausted. Then I have to whine my way through a workout - because I pay for them and I hate wasting money. I get to sleep by 11 after some reading or mindlessly browsing the internet for hours. 

What is some advice you would give to someone starting out that you wish someone gave to you?
AHH. So much! First and foremost, be yourself and the jobs will come. Have a backup plan but spend yourself in this and make it worthy of something bigger. 

How do you stay inspired?
I know I’m championing for a lot of little girls out there and a lot of people from small towns with big dreams. They’re looking at me. I’m going to give them something to look at.

image c/o: @jasminealleva

Favorite album of the season?
Hahaha, “Faith” by George Michael (Rest his beautiful soul) because I’m me. And they don’t make bangers like this anymore. 

Who is your favorite designer / current muse?
I will forever and ever love Alexander Wang. My muse is this little baddie I know named Savannah Gray. Her style is flawless and I try to emulate her sometimes but can’t pull it off. 

What are your off-duty style/beauty staples?
I definitely rock champion sweats and BP tee shirts because I’m lazy, broke, and love being comfortable. If I’m not in my modeling clothes (black on black on boring on black), I’m usually in some type of sportswear because it’s ALL PURPOSE. I never know when I’ll need to be forced to run somewhere, so I’m always ready in case there’s a random marathon or whatever. 

image c/o: @jasminealleva

image c/o: @jasminealleva

Daily Mantra?
“I’m brave and strong and strong and fearless and brave.”  It’s something my mom used to say when she’d make me go out to the very scary garage we had attached to our house. It legit gets me through anything. Also “fuck em, they don’t mean shit” because... fuck em. They don’t mean shit.

Style Profile: Lynn Andrews

Aside from being one of the most hysterical people I have ever met in my life - Lynn Andrews also wins at life with her incredible style.  Lynn is a quad-threat aka a Public Figure/Actor/Singer/Songwriter,  who recently moved to Los Angeles after completing the national tour of ANNIE where she played the infamous role of Miss Hannigan for over 1,000 performances (and got stage-doored by Maya Rudolph mind you!)  

I met Lynn while working on the national tour of Annie and was immediately so impressed with her comedic timing but also her ability to work so many amazing outfits and looks all within two adorably charming DVF suitcases.  She was like Mary Poppins with those suitcases - every day I saw her I was like “how the hell did she pull that off with our luggage restrictions?!”  

I had to ask her to share her secrets and thank God she did.  I feel like we can all learn a thing or two from Lynn Andrews - and personal style is a good place to start.
