Thanks to her starring role in the girl-powered sci-fi epic Divergent, actress Shailene Woodley is quickly becoming Hollywood’s next “it” girl. Here, she opens up about sisterhood, sound bites, and staying hippie-dippie. Dress: Meskita; Slip: Johnny Was; Bracelets: Dream Collective; Ring and Necklace: Gabriela Artigas The first thing I notice about Shailene (pronounced “Shay-LEEN”) Woodley is her feet—they’re bare. She’s just arrived at ... Read More
At the recent London premiere for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, everyone’s fantasy celeb BFF Jennifer Lawrence was spotted comforting a crying child who was sitting behind a security barrier. Hugs and cheering ensued, and everybody collectively named J-Law the best human in the world forever.  Watch this endless GIF of the scene (because I KNOW YOU WANT TO), and check out the full video below. Thanks to Vulture Image via ... Read More
Teenage phenom, Lorde, has been blowing minds since her chart-climbing hit, “Royals,” and upon the release of her addition to The Hunger Games soundtrack, it looks like she will remain queen bee indefinitely.  Her cover of Tears for Fears' “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (currently streaming online), sounds like a dark battle cry.  It seems fitting for the bloody dystopian images in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Lorde's ... Read More
  A few months back, a radio show contacted BUST to ask if one of our staffers would be interested in going on air to discuss misogyny in the James Bond series. A loud cricket noise echoed throughout the office—nobody had watched more than one or two of the flicks. That is, nobody but me. See, I’ve watched nearly every James Bond movie ever made, aside from some of the ones during the Roger Moore years (thumbs-down, no thank you). I’ve also ... Read More
As the YA genre has risen in popularity in recent years, the number of female protagonists has also grown in both books and film. Besides the obvious awesomeness of this, it’s especially great for there to be strong female characters in books for younger teens. I remember having a hard time finding many books with girls as the main characters beyond anything written by Tamora Pierce when I was in middle school. (Not complaining, though. All her characters ... Read More
The year 2012 brought us many pop culture trends, but perhaps none quite as big as The Hunger Games. The francise inspired everything from cultural criticism to DIY hair tutorial videos. Oh, and it gave us Katniss Everdeen, one of our top 10 fearless female film archers (say that ten times fast). Seriously, the fact that we'll never able to hang out with Katniss (you know, because she's, uh, not real) sorta breaks our heart. Yes, it’s safe to say we’re ... Read More
The Hunger Games is officially a phenomenon. People of all ages and tastes are loving it and with such a twisted plot and kickass heroine, who can blame them? America is geeking out together and I'm loving every minute of it. Not only are the fans varied, but so is the film's fashion. From district to kooky capital, there is surprising inspiration to be had. Although most capital citizens are a silly, ignorant bunch, they do get to wear some of the ... Read More

Tough Ladies in Film

BY Intern Kerishma in Movies |

The Hunger Games hit theaters last Friday with the third most successful opening weekend in North American history. One of the reasons I love the story so much is because of Katniss Everdeen, the strong female protagonist who volunteers to take the place of her sister, represents District 12, and proceeds to kick tons of ass. And in this age of blockbuster hits like Twilight that emphasize little more than the idea that every woman needs a man, an independent ... Read More
And the Hunger Games madness continues! This time it takes the form of the (extremely awesome) Hunger Names generator. Click the link, and it tells you your Panem name, which Hunger Games you participated in, and the way you died. Give it a go, and leave your Hunger Names in the comments! According to Hunger Names, my name is Dabble Portmanteau, I was a District 6 tribute in the 70th Hunger Games, and I was killed by a poison kiss (guess I didn't have any rubber ... Read More
Like many people, I am beside myself over The Hunger Games movie. When I first saw the trailer I felt the sort of excitement that Harry Potter fans have known for years. Do you think they’ll build a Panem Park in Orlando right next to the The Wizarding World? I hope they make it super realistic, with a dome where you have to fight for weapons and dodge swarms of hybrid killer bees. I should start teaching myself to wield a trident just to be ready. As a ... Read More
