Nylon Oct'08: It Girl Issue

If you are a sucker for pretty mag cover, swirly fonts and find yourself easily tricked by headlines like, "The It Girl Issue!", Nylon is giving you the fix you need...

Girls who made it to 2nd Nylon It Girls list are Zooey Deschanel, Daisy Lowe, Peaches & Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha, Abigail Lorrick, Cory & Cody Kennedy, Portia Freeman, Tennesse Thomas, Isabelle McNally, Teyana Taylor and Harley Viera-Newton.

Cover girl Zooey Deschanel is simply inspiring and gorgeous. I salute Nylon's choice for picking her to grace the cover of It Girl issue. I'm loving her style - although not really a fan of her music. Nylon describes her as "a living proof that dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."

Repeat offender Cory Kennedy and Peaches Geldof are definitely Nylon's favourite It Girls. After launching off with Nylon TV, Nylon Editor Marvin Scott Jarett dropped us a hint to expect column by Peaches in upcoming issues. Cory Kennedy had already scored one.

What is an It Girl, according to the It Girls...

Alexa Chung: "Aren't It Girls from rich families who don't really do anything? I actually do something. I present on TV, and in a really deadpan style. Sir, you offend me."

Harley Viera-Newton: "A lot of them have become famous for doing nothing..."

Abigail Lorick: "An It Girls would be a girl that is hardworking and inspires other young women to pursue whatever they want... It Girls are the ones who are doing things, who are taking any situation and making the best of it... making it fabulous."

Coco Rocha decides to stick on a low-profile; staying humble and ground to earth despite her supermodel status. "If it wasn't for him [photographer Steven Miesel], I'd probably be back home now... They could have chosen anyone - a supermodel at the top, but they gave me a chance."

And to complete my obsession with Michael Cera, Nylon presents "Music Sounds Better with You" - interviews with Michael Cera, Kat Dennings and other stars of the upcoming movie Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist.
Co-star Alexis Dziena on Michael Cera: "Don't you just want to put him in your pocket?"
I'm nodding my head.

There's also Nick & Nora's Infinite Bar List - comes handy if you are in New York's Lower East Side.

Other interesting articles include: Backstage at Chanel's 2009 Cruise Collection, faces of Calvin Klein Fall'08 Campaign, Lou Douillon's Lee Cooper Jeans collection.

Pages of this issue is beautifully decorated with pencil illustration and doodles. I told you this issue is a joy for all things cute.

I'm contented with this issue. Nylon's It Girl issue gives me a full recovery from the under-performed Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood issue. Hmm, it proves the point that I kinda judge the magazine by its cover...
