“No love like self love,” reads the hand-drawn caption to one of @libbyshappyproject’s illustrations. Her account is BRIMMING with body positive goodness, but 16-year-old Libby didn’t always feel that way. “Since I was thirteen, I've struggled with body image,” she tells @TeenVogue. “At its worst, I had so little confidence I didn't want to go outside.” That changed in April 2017, when Libby began her project, celebrating “boobs and other wobbly bits without turning them into objects of sex.” She says, “I’m so much happier now than I think I’ve ever been.” Libby’s drawings show people of all different shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities living their best life. “I don't think I'll ever get bored of drawing bodies because people are never repetitive,” she says. She gets firsthand proof of the power of representation when she gets feedback from people who feel seen by her “doodles,” as she calls them. “Every time somebody messages me saying I've helped them or made them smile, I think, 'Yes, I'm doing something right!'” She’s not just doing something right—she’s making something great. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 What Instagrams make you feel seen?

And now that's all I can think about 😂

"Palm rolls, two-strand twists, shea butter, coconut oil, and hours under the dryer... anyone with locs knows they take time and care. I spend nearly three hours each time I sit down to retwist my hair. They’re a conscious choice, and one that has weight—physical and political.
A quick primer: Locs have been around for thousands of years, but they went mainstream in the ’70s when Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, both followers of Rastafarianism, wore them as a symbol of devotion. Later, in the ’80s, the painter Jean- Michel Basquiat had them. In the ’90s, musicians like Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and Busta Rhymes all made the style an integral part of their look. To many creatives, locs are more than a hairstyle—they are a symbol of black expression.
Still, locs aren’t always perceived positively. Despite current hashtag campaigns like #BlackGirlMagic, which echoes the “Black Is Beautiful” movement of the ’60s, locs are viewed as unkempt by some. Last year, a federal court sided with an employer who rescinded a job offer due to an applicant’s “messy” locs. And it wasn’t until this year that the U.S. Army let women wear them. These moments, though difficult, do not deter me from wearing my own locs proudly. Each inch is a measure of time and a constant reminder of a black life lived." - @museummammy

Happy 18th Birthday, #LilyRoseDepp. 🎉✨

The inspirations for #AlexanderWang’s collections are better suited to a mixtape than any mood board. “Music plays a big role in my sensibility,” says the Bay Area native (and onetime Teen Vogue intern), who grew up listening to Depeche Mode and New Order and now carries a full-bore passion for hip-hop, with his shows known as much for their cutting-edge playlists and the musicians who watch from the front row as for the up-all-night, downtown-chic designs on parade. Alex’s after-parties are essentially music festivals, with performances by everybody from Nicki Minaj to CL, whose appearance at last fall’s rager cemented the South Korean rapper’s cool-girl cred. “Music is so powerful,” Alex says. “It crosses boundaries at all levels.” It certainly seeps into the DNA of his much-obsessed-over #WangGang, the A-list posse of muses that he taps to appear in his campaigns and shows. Edgy beauties like Binx Walton, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Lexi Boling, as well as musical dynamos such as Skrillex and A$AP Rocky are all card-carrying Squad members. “There’s no formula to choosing who to collaborate with,” says Alex. “It’s more of a gut instinct.” ❤️📸: @matteomontanariphotography
