When I was told that our very own Style & Content Editor, Christina, is best friends with Rachel Pincus, a stylist who we’ve worked with extensively, I was very dubious. At first glance they seem to be on opposite sides of the spectrum. Rachel comes across as an open book, Christina takes a beat to crack open. I’ve been working with them both separately for months and this shoot was the first time I had ever seen them in the same room.
To say their best friend energy was infectious is an understatement. With Rachel admitting to Christina such truths as, “I even wore a bra for you today!” and “You inspire me to never put color on my nails.” It’s always refreshing to see someone with their best friend, I think it’s when you’re the truest form of yourself. You’re not putting on any facades, you’re just you.
