Tina Leung, stylist, street style icon, and new star of Bling Empire New York, has been a mainstay of the global fashion scene for years. She’s worked with major brands like Valentino and Loewe, and during the pandemic (alongside other fashion heavy hitters Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Laura Kim, and Ezra William) started the digital series and comic House of Slay, in which superheroes take on "racism, hatred, bullying and fear of the 'other.'" Tina’s here to bring us inside her world—from the designers she has her eye on to the places her crew eats in each fashion capital around the world.

Marguerite Zabar Mariscal: CEO of Momofuku

Marguerite Zabar Mariscal is the woman leading all that is Momofuku: a pioneering restaurant group credited with starting the rise of contemporary Asian American cuisine in the United States, an assortment of restaurant-grade pantry staples like ramen noodles and addictive chilli crunch, and bona fide culinary empire. Over the span of 11-years, she’s worked her way up from public relations intern to brand director and chief of staff. As the trusted right hand of celebrity and James Beard Foundation Award–winning Chef David Chang for years, in 2019, at 30 years old, she was named CEO of Momofuku. On one hand, it all makes sense (after all, she was born into the family behind the specialty import emporium Zabars), but to Marguerite, the path was far from mapped out ahead of her. “I feel like anyone who grows up wanting to be a CEO is like a psychopath,” she tells Hillary on this week’s episode. Tune in to hear how Marguerite pivoted from thinking she’d find her place within the media world to leading one of the most influential restaurant groups (and beyond) of the past two decades.

Susan Korn: Susan Alexandra Creative Director, Designer, and Owner

Jewelry and accessories designer Susan Korn has created viral products time and time again with her brand, Susan Alexandra. Worn by everyone from Gigi Hadid to Alison Roman to Pete Davidson, her bright, sparkling adornments—whether in the form of a martini handbag or shrimp cocktail earrings—are still handmade in New York where Susan now has a retail location that’s as joyous and whimsical as the brand itself. But before she was a bona fide fashion darling, she was trying to find her place like the rest of us. “I was really thinking that I was going to be a stylist. I thought that was a really good life choice. And it was really, really rough,” Susan says on today’s episode. Tune in to hear how she found the confidence to push forward within a fashion world she didn’t know she belonged in, plus how she’s created a career for herself that she was, at times, reluctant to dream of.

Jamie Beck: Photographer and Author of An American in Provence

By 28 years old, Jamie Beck opened her own commercial photography studio in Lower Manhattan where she worked with a multitude of commercial clients from fashion brands like Chanel and Oscar de la Renta to tech companies like Google and Microsoft, and even major magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. (Yes, she was killing it.) Somewhere along the way, though, she decided her true dream was quite different: Beck wanted to live in the South of France. Over six years after Jamie initially left for what was to be a one-year sabbatical, she still lives in Provence with an entirely new photography career creating and selling her own body of work. Most recently, she’s compiled her work into a book titled An American in Provence, which includes not only her photographs but also poignant personal essays, photography and posing tips, and even French recipes. To hear how Jamie took a massive leap of faith on her own happiness—and to lust over her new home—hit the link up top.
