Unlike other video games where only specific customizations can be made, #AnimalCrossing allows users to essentially design a garment from scratch, creating the exact hem length, flounce, or pattern on the outfit their avatar wears. Unsurprisingly, the game has quickly been adopted by the fashion community. Now, @referencefestival , a Berlin-based fashion organization, is taking Animal Crossing’s fashion potential one step further with a virtual fashion show of Animal Crossing avatars dressed up in current season looks inspired by @Loewe , @Prada , and @gmbh_official . The show was conceived by photographer @kara__chung , who runs the Instagram account @animalcrossingfashionarchive , and stylist @marcgoehring of 032C. Tap the link in our bio for more details.
After face masks were made mandatory in New York, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn ( @laylahb ), a photographer from Brownsville who now lives in Crown Heights, quickly saw the standard-issue surgical mask give way to a more creative idea of face-covering in her Brooklyn neighborhood. “Even though their faces are obscured, people are still presenting their identity,” says Barrayn. “They are representing their cultural, ethnic, and national background through their masks.” Tap the link in our bio to see more.

When was the last time life felt, well, normal? At the link in our bio, Vogue editors and writers recall their mundane rituals of life before the pandemic—eating at a favorite restaurant, walking a child to school, racing to catch a subway, picking out an outfit for work—that, only now in retrospect, have taken on the power of a cherished memory.

@debbyryan and @joshuadun were engaged for a year before they planned their New Year’s Eve wedding in just 28 days. “We began to flirt with the idea of having a destination party celebrating the new decade, then decided in December to get married [in Austin] on New Year’s Eve, and just keep dancing until after the ball dropped,” Debby explains. It all happened quickly and clandestinely, but when @twentyonepilots dropped a new, surprise music video called “Level of Concern” in April, fans began to suspect the two had officially tied the knot, as Joshua is wearing a ring throughout the homemade portions of the clip. “The time just felt right,” Debby says.

"I had a tough time with anxiety the first few weeks we were sheltering in place. And then one day something occurred to me. During an especially low moment, Dash came over to tell me that he loved me. Being cloistered in a small apartment with him, though demanding, was actually a gift. And it’s because we’re together. His dad, even though busy with work 9 to 5, is in the same space as him all day." At the link in our bio, a single father shares what life in quarantine is like for him and his son.

“Before, we just had to do things on our terms,” @lizzobeeating says from her home in Los Angeles. “I wasn't going to wait for somebody to tell me that I could be avant-garde with my style, or I could be sexy, or I could be glam, I just had to take it into my own hands and show the world I could do it on my own. Now the world wants to zip up my dress for me and put me in some glass slippers—and I will gladly oblige.” Tap the link in our bio to read more about her new collaboration with @quayaustralia and how the star is finding glamour in lockdown.
