<b><p>It’s 2015! What’s big this year? We pretty much wrap up the trends you need to know this year – juice cleansing, frankenshirts, wearable tech, microserums, soft serves… and of course we couldn’t deviate from topics related to digital. This issue, we give you a rundown of online retailers like Luisaviaroma; digital music streaming services like Spotify… you get the drift. Instagram was definitely a huge trend over the past few years that’s still as popular, if not more, this year. Aptly, the gorgeous Nicole Warne a.k.a @garypeppergirl graces our cover this month, and she talks to us about social media and all things digital. Oh, don’t forget to find us on “Line” too – just scan the QR code on the cover to join.</p>

<b><p>Winter might be coming, or so they say — but we’d much rather be faced with Sophie Turner’s crystalline beauty. Yes, Game of Thrones darling, pure-as-the-driven-snow (or so she might seem) Sansa Stark, is on the cover of our Entertainment issue. Sophie gives us an insider’s account of life in Westeros, and defends her character — it seems like Sansa is a force to be reckoned with, and you’ll have to read more to find out. This issue’s also jam-packed with the hottest news on television and the silver screen, told through fashion and beauty. Last but not least, racking up the girl power are some of the best faces in entertainment right now, the likes of Lupita Nyong’O, Emma Stone, Keira Knightley and Alice Dellal.</p>

#24 Entertainment

Sophie Turner

<b><p>Killer style and music – these are probably the reasons why we put Natalia Kills on our cover, but we also learn how refreshingly candid the Brit songstress is about her “riches to rags” past, especially on her new tell-all album, “Trouble”. With all things music this month, we also put ‘new’ and veteran homegrown acts together to talk about the music scene and the elusive “singapore sound” (if it even exists)… and on the fashion front, we’re particularly swayed by music greats – including MJ and his leather jackets, Lady Gaga’s sky-high platforms, or Elton John’s iconic tinted shades. similarly, we look to Taylor Swift, Janelle Monáe and Lorde for beauty inspiration. As sung by Madonna, music, indeed, makes the people come together.</p>

#23 Music

Natalia Kills

<b><p>Cover girls are usually beautiful, and model Suki Waterhouse is no exception. Clad in Burberry, the Brit It-girl’s also known for her impeccable style and multiple talents in singing and acting – and even has a photo exhibition of her own. Other than being hot for Suki, we’re also looking at the hottest summer makeup trends (coral!) and how to beat the heat in the coolest togs, plus learn how shu uemura’s makeup stylist yuji asano works dreamy drama for both day and night. A trip down memory lane’s also in order as Baby-G celebrates their 20th Anniversary, and we look back on the Tom Ford legacy just before its first store opens here; then, McCafé launches the first of six cocktail cards (and tell us how to make the perfect cuppa). So much to read about… thankfully, we’ve got the chill vibes from The Pinholes to wind down to.</p>

#22 Summer Fever

Suki Waterhouse

<b><p>We hear much about her, but there’s still little we know about the gorgeous Arissa Cheo, the popular socialite and wife of Taiwanese singer Vanness Wu. Here, she opens up about her so-called charmed life, her business venture, Carte Blanche X, and how, really, she just wants to be defined in her own terms. Our Anniversary issue also comes with two exciting exclusives – Zoë Kravitz behind the scenes at the Chanel Paris-Dallas show, and Proenza Schouler’s venture into the makeup world with an M.A.C. collab. Also, we talk to Singapore’s “godfather of hip-hop”, Sheikh Haikel, about his new music school; give you a tour of the new lights in our NYLON Singapore office (plus, learn all about Edison bulbs from Like Lights); and hear about our designer’s journey to North Korea.</p>

<b><p>She’s not just any other pretty face – Singaporean model, actress and SK-II ambassador, Sheila Sim’s on our cover for, what else, the beauty issue! Sure, she’ll never admit to her gorgeousness, but our magazine spread proves otherwise; we also chat with the girl-next-door about opening up her own modelling agency. And then, in our first-ever “NYLON beauty hit list”, we round up some of the best tried-and-tested items in the market that both the team, industry experts, and even you guys, are raving about.  Other than G-Star’s collab with Yuna, and Rihanna’s new collection for M.A.C., our radar section’s packed with interviews with Big Pink, Alpine and Lucy Rose, who’re coming down for the Mosaic Music Festival, while we also catch up with a homegrown veteran of our own, The Analog Girl.</p>

#20 Beauty & Brains

Sheila Sim

<b><p>We celebrate all things Asian this month, so what better way to start the year right than put English-Sri Lankan rapper, M.I.A. on our cover? As contemporary as her fashion and music choices are, the riveting beauty with those hard-hitting lyrics in “Paper Planes” still stays true to her roots. We also pay tribute to Jap fashion and K-beauty, rein in the year of the horse with cny-inspired pieces and our customised stack of H&M Spring 2014 cards. Local acts .gif and fauxe also make an appearance, along with overseas bands like Unknown Mortal Orchestra who’re making their way here for Laneway. Oh, and starting from this issue, there’s a bound copy of NYLON Guys inside every edition of our magazine – tear and share!</p>

<b><p>It should be obvious by now that we can’t get enough of Japan. Last year, we had Kiko Mizuhara on the cover of our Japan issue, and this year, it’s another amazing personality – the effervescent model, Sara Mary. Handpicked by Marvin Jarrett for a number of fashion shoots, and a role in his music video for his single “Touch The Moon”, she’s definitely one to watch. And the Japan craze continues this issue, with a series of fashion and makeup features including Junya Watanabe, Commes des Garcons, Tsumori Chisato, Shiseido, and Shu Uemura. Lots of j-pop on our radar too. Nippon, Aishiteru!</p>

#15 Still Big in Japan

Local illustrator Qixuan Lim lends her beautiful illustrations to our cover spread on Emmy The Great – one example of great local talent there.  We also feature some great fashion collaborations like Emma Farrow for Topshop Unique, and Karl Lagerfeld for Melissa.</p>

#14 The Fine Art of Life

<b><p>Our second music issue sees the singer of uk indie rockers “the noisettes” on our cover, and yeah, Shingai Shoniwa’s as flawless and daring as she is on stage, what with her spunky hair and knack for pulling off bright colours. Elsewhere in the issue, we look at the daughters of rock ‘n’ roll – Liv Tyler, Lily Collins, Lizzie Jagger and Kelly Osbourne – who, no doubt, carry the effortless cool of their parents over to their style; and pre-Fall fashion and beauty styles, along with Brit singer Rita Ora as the newest face of Superga. Over at Radar, we hear about new local bands with veteran music-makers in their ranks, pose five exact questions to “I Am David Sparkle” only to be met with a myriad of interesting answers, and talk about David Bowie’s amazing exhibition at the V&A in London.</p>

The spotlight’s also on the beautiful colourways of Marc Jacob’s S/S collection, Issey Miyake’s pleated garments and bao bao, plus, a behind-the-scenes look at Make Up For Ever’s HD makeup.</p>
