Our columnist Melanie Jane Parker examines the practice of using youthful blood to slow aging

Leviticus 17:11: For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. The Oxford Dictionary of Biology defines blood as “a fluid body tissue that acts as a transport medium within […]

Nicole Kidman

The cover of our Nocturne Issue talks about her newest film "Lion" and her decision to continue to take on small roles.

Nicole Kidman, gently, asks me if I have children. I do not, I admit, but would she like to tell me about hers? The actress, 49, after all, has described herself on more than one occasion as having a very strong maternal instinct, and in her new film, the absolutely stunning Lion (director Garth Davis’ first film), she plays the […]

One of the foremost researchers in circadian rhythms gives us his take on getting in tune with our cycles

The day is done, and the darkness Falls from the wings of Night, As a feather is wafted downward From an eagle in his flight. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow There have been over a trillion dusks and dawns since life began some 3.8 billion years ago. During that time the Earth’s daily rotation has slowed to a shade less than […]

Shawn Mendes

“The second you start trying to write about things that other people want to hear, it’s not as honest as it should be”

Shawn Mendes would rather take a drive to the beach than go out to the club. However, he’s a Leo, and he’s not exactly shy. He’s a tender-voiced, albeit outspoken, peach-fuzzed cat of 18 who rocketed to fame after posting to the Vine social media platform short looping videos of himself singing. Three years, and almost half a billion plays […]

Your next Swedish Pop Crush Zara Larsson on Third Wave Feminism

Before jumping onto the phone with Swedish pop sensation Zara Larsson I felt an old but instantly recognizable pang: I was about to speak to a teenage girl. But rather than adolescent angst, this was the usual nerves of a new interview. The feeling, however, was apt—many of 18-year-old Larsson’s songs are melodic reminders of all that is frightening about teenage […]

Our columnist Bill DiDonna illuminates us on how to find a bottle of Pechuga after gambling away everything you have in Macau

It, of course, happened at night.  Anyone that tells you nothing good happens after 2AM probably doesn’t stay up late. I was on the night boat from Macau to Shenzhen lamenting my losses and hoping to maybe pick up some Yuan at a pre-dawn cockfight on the mainland. Monica had been bitching about everything: my gambling, my foul mood, my […]

An Exploration of Iconic Brand, Guess, with Founder Paul Marciano and a Handful of His Insta-Muses

A skip through the hallways of Guess headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles is a bit like an astral tour high above DTLA at the famous, mysterious, Griffith Park Observatory. At the Observatory, you’ll interactively witness how seemingly designed ripples through our universe precipitate star showers, stellar explosions, and alluring phenomena—an experience not unlike my morning spent with co-founder and Chief Creative […]

Seminal Punk ‘Zine Slash Magazine Sees New Life With A Glossy Imprint

At Flaunt we like to think that we are not without a certain edge—that there’s a bit of the hard-core in our blood. But compared to the punk ‘zine Slash, we can’t really claim too much cred. Maybe we just have a soft spot for the finer things; or maybe, like Cyndi Lauper intoned in her classic verse, we really […]
