COURRÈGES

Courrèges is the futuristic clothing label started by French designer André Courrèges in 1961. Known for all things mod and spacey (for example, the “little white dress”, go-go boots and that classic crinkle vinyl suit in array of colors), this modernist designer is someone that we have worshipped and collected for over 20 years.

STELLA

NEEDS A VACATION!

Designer. Model. Club girl. Blogger. We just love creative types who wear a lot of different hats! And hat designer Stella RoseSaint Clair did just that, showcasing her festive tropical hat designs at her fashion show during New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017, sponsored by Bullet Magazine. The designer showed 9 handmade hats inspired by tropical plants and the classic structure of the sun visor, on quirky downtown type models. Stella also created colorful dresses on the spot by wrapping her models in cellophane. Dj partners Fiends4Ever spun vintage 60s surf tunes, while attendees chugged free cans of PBR beer. The hats were fun and colorful, just over-the-top, exactly what one would expect from the kooky designer. Stella stated, “I desperately needed to take a vacation, so I decided to create a series of hats inspired by various tropical and desert plants. For the show I assembled a sort of “human garden” to give me a taste of a tropical getaway.  A getaway indeed! Thanks for the much needed vacation, Stella!

THE BLITZ KID 

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR

Ponyboy Magazine was excited to photograph New York City downtown girl/model Stella Rose Saint Clair. Stella has the most amazing nightclub looks so she was the perfect model for our Blitz Kid/New Romantic editorial. We didn’t even need a stylist or makeup artist!  Such a creative talent with her own amazing outfits and make-up, our beautiful model donned different designers for our camera including Diane Von Furstenberg, Moschino, Yves Saint Laurent and Bob Mackie.

DOWNTOWN DARLING

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR

Blonde. Beautiful. Out every evening. Downtown. Uptown, but rarely mid-town. Everyone’s favorite New York City club girl. And we love featuring Stella in our women’s editorials. We caught up with the talented darling between photo shoots, nightclub events, blogging and designing to ask her a few questions about her background, and what we can expect for her bright future. Assorted photos courtesy of Stella Rose Saint Clair.

PONYBOY:  Please tell us where you originally hail from?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  NYC —> Seattle —> NYC

PONYBOY:  What brought you back to NYC?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  An airplane! I came back for the fashion, culture, nightlife, and the seasons. We don’t have seasons in Seattle.

PONYBOY:  You’re known as a downtown girl, model, designer, blogger and performer. But what’s your favorite thing to do?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  I like to do Bjork impressions when nobody’s around, hug my cat, make vegan desserts and art.

PONYBOY:  How did you get cast in the Lanvin campaign photographed by the great Steven Meisel?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  I was discovered in a Lower East Side cafe. I met with Meisel at his studio and he cast me personally!

PONYBOY:  Do people ever recognize you from that campaign?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  It’s happened a few times but I change my appearance so much that it’s not often that people spot me right away. If I dye my bangs purple again, I’m sure I’ll get recognized.

PONYBOY:  As far as design is concerned, is it clothing that you design? Accessories?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  Mostly accessories at the moment. I’m focused on hats and other small goodies. I’m hoping to move into clothing soon. I have about a million ideas!

PONYBOY:  You recently launched a music/performance act called “Teen Pussy.” Please tell us more about that?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  Teen Pussy will make you wish you’d never been born. Teen Pussy is cats in heat. Teen Pussy is terrible so don’t bother coming to see us, okay?

PONYBOY:  Ha! Okay. What aspirations do you have besides the many hats that you already wear?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  I’d like to travel for work. I traveled all over as a child but I’d like a good reason to visit overseas again, namely Paris and Tokyo. Right now most of my aspirations just have to do with my own brand and blog. I also aspire to have a bigger closet.

PONYBOY:  If you could be doing anything right now, what would that be?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  Peeing. But I can’t because the bathroom is occupied.

PONYBOY:  What can we expect to see from you in the near future?

STELLA ROSE SAINT CLAIR:  Felt hats, a video series, quilted things, opera performances, and clothing made out of plastic.
