OMG! This column is so fabulous. These featured individuals are the trendsetters for the next decade. Ali Edwards is a visionary genius. I'm sure people who read this will be donating all their clothing and getting what they see in this feature. Thank you, thank you. (Will that be deleted like every other comment this feature gets?)
