WHAT YOUTH: What’s your full name?

Do you have any nicknames?
My real name is already kind of a nickname, but my friends call me “Baby Bleu” and my brother calls me Biru — but I have no idea why [laughs].

Dana Point and still living here now.

Will you send us a selfie?

What’s your favorite thing to do on a Sunday?
Wake up early, make some tea, put on some vinyl and dance around the house in my undies.

What do you wonder about the most?

What’s been your biggest mistake?
I feel like my mistakes are what make me who I am, so I don’t have one.


What skills do you wish you possessed?
Definitely to be able to fly!

If you could live in any time period when would it by and why?

I’d have to say 1960s. You had sex and drugs and rock and roll, what else can you ask for?

What’s your dream job?
My job.


What’s the last thing you created?
A Diddley Bow electric slide guitar.

If you could have a free plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Hmm… that’s a hard one! Probably Japan, I’ve never been and have always wanted to go.


Favorite hobbies?
Anything involving paints and getting my hands dirty.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?
Never run with scissors.

Meet Irie. A rare and delicate discovery from Huntington Beach of all places. We recently did a shoot with her for our Cluster issue way back when [What Youth Issue 10], and we got to hang out with her.

Girl We Adore: Langley Fox Presented by Amuse Society

“If I don’t laugh at my outfit a little bit each morning, I’ll change.” Langley Fox told us this on the roof of the Ace Hotel after the World Premiere of Cluster. She was of course dressed impeccably, with just enough giggle. That night, it was a polka dot dress. Just perfection. And while Langley has…

Girl We Adore: Natascha Elisa In Search of Sadie Presented by Amuse Society

Natascha Elisa doesn’t make any plans. Things just seem to happen. She recently caught the attention of Amuse Society and it’s easy to see why. As a model, a blogger, a philanthropist, a business mogul, Natascha doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon. It began in Australia at age 15 when she was scouted…

Girl We Adore: Kayla Varley Both sides of the glass Presented by Amuse Society

Kayla Varley left the small town of Bakersfield, California and headed to L.A. at age 17, armed with her self-taught photography skills and a whole lot of angsty ambition. Inspired by the works of Lauren Greenfield and Sally Mann, Kayla‘s photographic style commands attention. It has a bold, fierceness we like. Gifted a point-and-shoot camera…

Girl We Adore: Maddy Relph A sexier world tour Presented by Amuse Society

This is Maddy Relph. She grew up in Australia and was the paper girl for Jourdan Bowen, who lived on the same street as her. Long story short, they have been together for 9 years now and one day in-between her modeling and his mining, they decided to bail. Photog and muse. On the run….

Girl We Adore: Rikki Barton Inspired by Kate Moss Presented by Amuse Society

This shoot was inspired by the historic shot of Kate Moss reading in the bathtub shot by Sante D’Orazio for Vogue Italia in 1995. And while you need say no more (you had us at Kate Moss), this ode to the icon photographed by Mark Powell caught our eye. The smokey-eyed-but-somehow-adorablely-sexy literati in her underwear…
