TRACEE ELLIS ROSS Hi Ashley! How are you doing?
ASHLEY GRAHAM I’m so good! I’m so happy to be doing this.
TER Me too! First of all, you’re slaying everybody’s life right now with your fashion. I was spit out of a fashion womb, thanks to momma [Diana Ross]. I’ve been stealing her clothes for a lifetime. My mom was always like, “What are you doing?” Because she always thought that the costumes were incredibly important and worthy of archiving, but I’ve been explaining to her …
How Doutzen Kroes Gets Ready for the Met Gala
The Met is known as the Super Bowl of fashion. How do you go about deciding what your look is going to be?
I always try and think about how the theme works personally for me. I have never taken the theme literally, but if a designer dresses me, I go with their vision and suggest touches that are still true to myself.
When was you first Met Ball?
I think it was 2009.
What is the most outrageous thing you’ve seen at a Met Ball?
Outrageous—but in the best possible way—was ?…
Perfume Genius Talks to V About What Shaped His New Record
Domesticity suits Mike Hadreas. For someone whose existence thus far has included addiction, recovery, a YouTube ban for “promoting mature sexual themes,” a song that closes the second season of Transparent, and several albums of raw, emotional music, you might expect that the guy who performs as Perfume Genius leads a titillating, drama-packed life. That may have once been the case, but Hadreas, along with his boyfriend, relocated last year from his hometown of Seattle and hunkered down in…

Lady Gaga took to Twitter to let her fans know that she was M.I.A. because she’s busy filming, for her role in A Star Is Born. The Bradley Cooper-directed film shot scenes a couple of weeks ago, as well, in between Coachella weekend 1 and weekend 2, where Gaga headlined. Not one…
Director Vera Miao Talks Bringing Representation to Horror Film
Aspiring filmmakers and directors hop off flights at JFK and LAX every single day, all hoping to get their big break in large cities like New York or Los Angeles. The film industry is competitive and in no way an easy field to enter, regardless of what side of production a Hollywood hopeful is aiming for. But for Guam-born director and writer Vera Miao, that big break is coming with the Tribeca Film Festival at Tribeca N.O.W. (new online work)—a program that features and celebrates short films…
Harry Styles Releases Second Solo Track, “Sweet Creature”
After weeks of blasting “Sign of the Times” nonstop, fans finally have another track from Harry Styles to add to their playlists. The One Direction alum-gone-solo just released “Sweet Creature,” the second track to be unveiled from his upcoming self-titled debut album, set to be released next Friday, May 12.

Lena Dunham Directs Campy and Queer New Music Video for Bleachers
Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff didn’t have to go too far to find the director for his next music video. For “Don’t Take the Money,” he enlisted his longtime girlfriend, Lena Dunham (the woman behind Girls). The resulting product is colorful, crazy, and a little queer.
Dunham makes a perfect choice for another reason; the song is about her. In an Instagram post announcing the track’s release, Antonoff wrote, “specifically in don’t take the money i’m talking about my relationship. verses go …
Met Gala 2017: The Story Behind Selena Gomez’s Custom Coach Look
Following the announcement of her new brand ambassadorship with Coach, it should come as no surprise that the singing beauty appeared on last night’s 2017 Met Gala red carpet in a custom dress from the American brand. Not even an arm’s length away walked the dress’s designer, Stuart Vevers. It’s hard to say Vevers was Gomez’s date for the evening as that honor clearly went to her new beau, The Weeknd. The two shared an opportune kiss for all the cameras.
On his designs (the bag was custom, t…
