The sisters are UNLV Lady Rebels with serious game—Dakota was named to the Mountain West All-Conference Team this season, and the team made the cut for the 2017 Women's National Invitation Tournament. Their selfie game is on point, too—to- gether, they have nearly 2 million Ins- tagram followers. Take two minutes to look them up. Don't worry, we'll wait. It's little wonder the duo caught the attention of hip-hop star Drake, who has flown to Vegas to catch the sisters go hard in the paint. Like Drizzy, we know greatness when we see it, so we asked Dylan and Dakota to star in this season's Las Vegas Weekly spring fashion issue. "We're very diverse when it comes to our styles and love to switch it up depending on our mood and the seasons," Dakota says. "Dylan's a little more sophisticated; I'm a little more bubbly and girly." Despite their differences, the twins take advantage of their doubled wardrobe. "We share all of our clothes, but we wear things differently." As the heat turns up and bikinis come out, the sisters say they're most ex- cited about boyfriend jeans, bomber jackets and high-waisted looks—and rocking bright, bold colors. "We re- ally love color," Dakota says. "People don't realize how hard it is to bring so many different colors together for one look." They make it look easy, and that goes for everything they do. Between basketball, school and keeping their Insta-game lit, they've still found time to make it into the recording studio. That's right, they're singers and songwriters, too. "We write all of our own stuff," Dylan says. "We love recording and we love writing. We really enjoy the creative process." The sisters have been churning out pop-tinged R&B tunes (hear: "Better" and "Say Goodnight") for the past year—and they've gotten feedback from Champagne Papi himself. "He's heard our music before," Dylan says about Drake. "In the future we hope we can collaborate on something." –Leslie Ventura
