Indie fashion label Evil Kitty will be showing off their Spring 2010 collection at the Chicago Fashion Incubator Pop Up Shop at The 900 Shops this Saturday, April 10th.  The brand, described by Social Stylists as "sometimes classic, sometimes playful, and always a little mischevious," will be offing free mini-makeovers at the event and free goodie bags (which include a copy of BUST!) to the first 30 guests to RSVP.  There will also be free copies of BUST ...

New York's Full Figured Fashion Week is back and this year's event promises to be even better than the last.  After last year's endeavor attracted thousands of designers, models, retailers and shoppers, this year, founder Gwen DeVoe is upping the ante by aspiring to "make a serious impression on a thin focused industry." With four days of panels and events, including a guided tour of New York's best plus sized hot spots and a workshop for aspiring plus ... Read More
by Erin DeJesusIn our Apr/May "Men We Love" issue, we saluted five men who have joined the front lines in the fight for women's rights. Nicholas D. Kristof, a New York Times Op-ed columnist and author — along with his wife Sheryl WuDunn — of the fantastic book Half the Sky: From Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide —  made our list for his efforts to make empowering women front-page news. We have the rest of our interview with ... Read More
Finally, all those long, hard years of being an armpit-hair-clad feminist is paying off: MTV is casting for a woman with long armpit hair to feature on a game show.  This charming gig pays $300 for six hours of work, and knowing MTV's reputable track of portraying people fairly (think Jersey Shore), I'm sure they have this potential woman's best interests in mind.  Right?

We covered New Orleans' "sissy bounce" rappers in our latest issue, so we were extra excited to see a new art show in New Orleans called "Where They At: Bounce and Hip-Hop in Words and Pictures," opening April 22nd. Photographer Aubrey Edwards and journalist Alison Fensterstock have compiled a multi-media exhibition that features many members of the New Orleans bounce community, spanning from the 1980s to present day.  Featuring footage of live performances, ...

Imma be up front here.  Ke$ha's songs are dumb.  They're vapid and silly and they don't make sense ("kick them to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger?"  Girl, have you SEEN Mick Jagger?!)  Behold:     <--- That's him.  You can change your mind now.  But despite her bad taste in men, I think the girl might be a witch.  All I know is when "Tik Tok" starts playing,  I start flailing and everyone has to back ...

Our video lady, Vanessa Rees, and I met up with Jemina Pearl before her show at Union Pool on February 13th. And just so no one could call BS on it, we taped it. Check it out!    You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this ... Read More
From the department of "'nuff said," I bring you the following photo and caption from today's Wall Street Journal:"Kevin Abraham-Banks, a Sioux Falls, S.D., trucker, likes to knit while passing the time on the road. Here he makes a sweater for his wife."  Photo by Gretchen Abraham-Banks Not only is he knitting her a sweater, but he seems to also have hyphenated his last name, taking her last name along with his Who is this dude? And does he have 5 million ... Read More
This past Saturday, a group of women and men protested double-standards—by going topless. Maine is one of only a handful of states that allows women to go topless in public. The group marched down the streets of Portland without incident, though there were many onlookers—some with cameras—who merely gawked. According to an article in the Portland Press Herald: "[Ty] MacDowell [the organizer of the march] said she was surprised by the turnout of ... Read More
On Thursday, a Kansas judge ruled that Scott Roeder, the man who shot and killed Wichita, Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, will spend life in prison. Roeder will be eligible for parole in 2060. Dr. Tiller was a long-time target within the anti-choice camp: he was one of the few abortion providers who would perform late-term abortions. He had already endured one attack, having been shot in both arms in 1993. He was killed on May 30th, 2009 in the foyer ... Read More
