Editors’ Note: We weren’t too surprised when we saw a GQ.com story this week featuring Houston-raised model Faith Lynch as a celebrity, in a roundup of what the mag’s “stylish friends” are wearing to get dressed up, “even while we all stay home.” We knew that Lynch, who selected a strapless leather mini-dress for the article, was destined for success as a big-time model when we featured her on our cover and in this fashion spread in March 2017.

The crowd partied with Galantis at the grand opening of Sekai Night and Day in EaDo.
