Jenny Dell: Improper Bostonian

NESN Red Sox reporter Jenny Dell on the cover of this week's Improper. On whether she gets sick of all that baseball: "I think anything you end up putting your all into, you love.

Melody Ehsani

Melody Ehsani grew up in a traditional Persian home, destined for law school and a status-assigning marriage. The LA native chose a different route, however, and today her vibrant designs are snapped up by celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez. "I decided to break with my culture and follow my heart into a field I was internally drawn to….design," said Ehsani. "The more I designed shoes and products, the more it felt like the right thing for me to be doing."

Ehsani's style has become highly sought after, and Adam joined her on a recent day at Reebok's headquarters while she worked on a new shoe design.
