For­get that old adage that se­quins can only be pulled off at night – this cool ensem­ble worn by model Hai­ley Bald­win proves that fash­ion is all about break­ing the rules. Case in point: a Valentino party frock paired with sneak­ers, socks and a Cur­rent/el­liott denim jacket. The fin­ish­ing touch? A retro choker. Love!

Grow­ing up in Am­stelveen, Nether­lands, Martin Gar­rix (aka Mar­tijn Gar­rit­sen) was a mu­si­cal child, hav­ing learnt how to play the gui­tar at just eight years old. But his in­ter­ests quickly shifted af­ter be­ing wowed by DJ Tiësto’s per­for­mance at the 2004 Sum­mer Olympics in Athens. In fact, Martin was so in­spired by Tiësto’s track ‘Traf­fic’ that it prompted him to teach him­self to com­pose mu­sic.

In 2012, he was signed to Spin­nin’ Records while study­ing at the pro­duc­tion school Her­man Brood Academie in Utrecht. Fol­low­ing his grad­u­a­tion, Martin started ghost-writ­ing tracks for artists like Avicii and Sher­manol­ogy.

It was his solo re­lease, ‘An­i­mals’, that launched Martin’s in­ter­na­tional DJ ca­reer. Since then, he’s per­formed at Ul­tra Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Europe and Mi­ami and has col­lab­o­rated with the likes of Usher, Ed Sheeran and DJS Afro­jack, Hard­well and Dillon Fran­cis. Last year, he started his own record la­bel, STMPD RCRDS, and was ranked the num­ber one DJ in the world by DJ Mag­a­zine. Catch him on the decks at Ul­tra South Africa this month.
