Interview: Emma Noelle

Chances are you’ve heard of Barnard sophomore and photographer Emma Noelle. Her work, which has appeared in Ratrock Magazine, Sukeban Magazine, Mythos Magazine, and more, often consists of portraits that are at once intense and dreamy. Apart from all of that, she’s also trying to create a photography major at Barnard. Hoot reached out to find out more about Emma, her art, and her love for the Hungarian Pastry Shop, among other things. You can find more of her on Instagram, and online at

Monochrome + Graphic

Monochrome makeup reemerged about a year ago and it hasn’t gone away. Matching the tones on your eyes, lips, and cheeks is the ultimate way to stretch your products and make your makeup for you. With only one product (in this case, three Kryolan Pure Pigments), you can create looks that are as stunning as they are easy to achieve.

Red: the ultimate power color. Balance a bold red eye with a bitten lip look, applying the pigment only to the center of the lips.

Denim on Denim on Denim

Fall is (sort of) here and with it, the inescapable stress of midterms… and transitional dressing. Luckily, jean jackets have insane versatility — throw one over a simple outfit to make a denim statement or wear it with out-there pieces to tone them down. Not many other items have that potential for dual impact. Here are some of my tips on how to style a denim jacket: either with a modern take or while sampling from the 90’s with the denim on denim look!

A Week In Outfits: Abby Clemente

This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. This week, we’re featuring Abby Clemente, Barnard Class of 2020.

My name is Abby Clemente, and I’m an incoming sophomore at Barnard College. I’m currently undeclared but am thinking of double majoring in economics with a political track, and art history with a visual arts concentration. For the past three summers, I’ve been working at a store in my town called Aerin. Aerin Lauder is Estée Lauder’s granddaughter. She decided to open up her own shop in Southampton, and has expanded it year to year, selling things from home décor, beauty, accessories, and clothes! My job basically consists of meeting each day’s profit goal, styling clients, merchandising and managing the store layout, shipping out orders, and checking inventory to keep up with replenishment and stock.

Sunday: Sundays are my days off, so I spent the day at a cute little town called Greenport before having a picnic at a vineyard nearby. The dress code for my store are meant to be more lighter colors and not a lot of black, so today I took advantage of my typical dark color scheme/wardrobe! I wore a plain black tee with some straight leg denims, a belt, an old pair of strappy sandals, and my new Tjmaxx find that I think makes the outfit, a long black Cynthia Rowley vest!Full Story »

A Week In Outfits: Paloma Raines

This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. This week, we’re featuring Paloma Raines, Barnard Class of 2020. Follow her on Instagram @palomaraines.

Hello from Hoot’s PR Director, Paloma. I’ve been traveling through Bolivia for the past few weeks, visiting family and touring the cities of Santa Cruz, La Paz, and Uyuni. This summer I’ve visited Mexico and worked as an intern in Levi’s Photo Studio. I am currently undeclared, but exploring different social sciences. I plan on continuing my work at Hoot and Meet Me at the Museum when I return to campus.

Monday: Touring the salt flats of Uyuni today called for a thick Tommy Hilfiger sweater and Levi’s jeans layered over Uniqlo and Lululemon thermals. I’m also wearing a pair of Ray Ban aviators, a red leather crossbody, and a brown suede jacket I borrowed from my grandfather.Full Story »

Interview: Wafia

Earlier this summer, Hoot’s co-blog editor Alyssa Gengos caught up with Wafia, an Australian singer-songwriter of Arab and Dutch heritage. They chatted about being a woman in the music industry, the importance of POC’s representation in music, personal style, and confidence.

Alyssa: Hey Wafia! You’re based in Brisbane, Australia, right?

Wafia: Yes! It’s really beautiful.

Alyssa: One thing that I’ve noticed about Australian artists is that there seems to be a strong community of musicians within the country. Do you think that has to do with just your proximity to each other, or is there something else that brings you all together? A lot of your collaborators are on your label – Australian producers.

Wafia: I think it’s different for everyone. For me, personally, I kind of built my own community because I felt like I didn’t fit into the ones that were preexisting. It all happened perchance, the producers that I worked with. Everything was pretty much a chance meeting. I worked with this guy called Thrupence who hit me up on Twitter because… he did [laughs]. One day, I was doing a photoshoot on some basketball courts and I met Ta-ku that way, and he hit me up that night. That same day, I met my principal co-writer, who has been [Ben] Abraham. Everything kind of happens perchance. In that, I sort of built my own community. And I always have to fly to see them, it’s not like they’re actually cl


ose to me at all. If I want to see Ta-ku, it’s like a 4 to 5 hour flight to the other side of the country. I think the internet makes it easy, if anything. Working with them is almost like having an LA collaborator, because I do think there is quite a lot of land between us.

Subtle colorful makeup to wear anywhere —even at your boring internship

Most summer internships are not what they seem. They draw you in with the promise of a great letter of recommendation or opportunity to make connections while in reality, you spend most of your time doing data entry, getting coffee, and waiting to leave. But just because the work is boring doesn’t mean you have to look boring.

Colorful makeup can be tough to wear, especially in an office environment, but there are ways to do it without the touch ups of a bright lip or the anxious discomfort of stepping too far out of your comfort zone. Here are three ways to wear color on your face absolutely anywhere. Yes, even to your internship.

This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. This week, we’re featuring Dan Reiser, an incoming Barnard freshman. Follow Dan on Instagram @d.j.reiser.
This week I was hanging out with friends, chilling at home rewatching Transparent, and listening to “Woman” by Kesha on repeat. I’m also working this summer as a Research Assistant in the Network for Nonprofit and Social Impact lab at Northwestern University. When I get to campus I plan on majoring in Sociology and/or American Studies and pursuing social justice in any way I can.

    4 days ago by hootmag “A friend once told me that I pick out clothes not according to general style or brand, but rather by color and fit. I definitely think that is true, I get a lot of my clothes from thrift stores and don’t often pay attention to the label. Most of my clothes are picked out from colors, cuts, or patterns that catch my eye in store. Because of that, my style is pretty hard to define and not very cohesive, but full of pieces that are very dear to me.”  @eloisewest  CLOSETS UP ON HOOTMAG.ORG/BLOG
