Law Roach sits down with Emily Ratajkowski
Law Roach is this week’s guest on Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low with EmRata; letting the model in on hitting rock bottom, deciding to hang up his styling boots, and the impact his career had on his personal relationships. Admitting to Ratajkowski that despite the recent highs of Fashion Month and the Oscars, he realized he was saddled with anxiety and thought, “F*ck I’m miserable.” Roach adds that his work has come at the cost of friendships and his private life, telling the host: “[This job] is the only thing I know how to do. I’m not in relationship, I have never been in a relationship….my focus has only been my career…so I lost a lot of friends.” Now that he’s made the decision to step back from celebrity styling, he adds that spending time with his family is top priority. Roach also spoke about his longtime client Zendaya’s reaction to his career update, clarifying that he hadn’t told her before he posted the news to Instagram last Monday. “It was tough for her…so she calls she said, ‘Girl, I thought we’d make big decisions together.’ Of course she supported me. And she was like, ‘Whatever you need, whatever you need.’ But the internet is cruel. It’s really cruel. So people started to blame her for my retirement. And that wasn’t fair to her. And the things they were saying, of course, isn’t true. So that spilled over to my suffering, she started to suffer too. And I didn’t think I didn’t think that was fair. Because she has always protected me in this industry and vice versa.” He added a funny anecdote about how he always tells aspiring stylists to fake it ’til they make it. “Zendaya always tells this story,” he shared. “She’s like, ‘Girl when you first start working you didn’t even have safety pins’—like I didn’t know anything. I was green!” Listen to the whole ep wherever you get your podcasts now.

Deborah Pagani launches new campaign
NYC-based fine jewelry and hair accessory designer (of the hair pin fame—IYK, YK) has shared a new campaign, shot by Gilles Bensimon. The campaign stars model Alana Felisberto, who highlights said famous eye-catching gold DP Pin as well as limited-edition jewelry. Pagani enlisted Kate Davidson Hudson to style the visuals, which seeks to marry the designer’s go-to reference points of ’80s maximalism and the sleekness of the ’90s: two eras in which Pagani spent her days as a celebrity hair colorist maestros such as John Sahag, Oribe Canales, and Rita Hazan.
