  When the photographer Stephanie Diani saw a group of older burlesque performers, The Legends of Burlesque, she was mesmerized. Consumed by images of the women who graced the stages of the Miss Exotic World pageant, the artist located some of the most renowned performers whose ages ranged from the 50s to the 70s. She then visited the women’s homes, chatted with them, and took their portraits as they donned their favorite ... Read More
  “What is between my legs is not thoroughly who I am. If gender is black and white, I’m grey,” says Ryley Pogensky, a gender queer model participating in Barney’s New York’s new campaign. Pogensky is one of almost twenty transgender and gender queer models featured in the catalog and ad images, shot by the legendary Bruce Weber.    Each model has a story to tell, hailing from communities across the globe. Culturally, ... Read More
Last night, I was watching the Grammy Awards when I realized something utterly ridiculous. LL Cool J has been wearing that hat (pictured above), known as a "flat cap" (thanks, Google image search) for a suspicious amount of time. Nobody holds on to trends for that long, unless you're still committed to that high waisted denim Calvin Klein pencil skirt that hasn't fit since you were 21 years old  because it's "a classic" and "maybe it will fit again ...

Jillian Mercado, a 26 year-old New York fashion editor living with muscular dystrophy has been cast as one of the young and hip, culturally diverse models that are part of Diesel’s newest campaign ‘We Are Connected.’ Although Mercado says that it was done as a joke, a few months ago she responded to a Diesel casting call looking for young culturally representative models. Not too long after, she was contacted by Diesel requesting more pics. And it’s ... Read More
Women, pants, and power have been mixed up together since suffragist Amelia Bloomer paraded around in “Turkishtrousers” in the 1850s. Bloomer’s goal was to reform women’s clothing, with its restrictive corsets and heavy skirts, but her outfit brought mostly ridicule from a public that largely believed trousers, along with the vote, were men’s prerogatives. The bicycle craze of the 1890s helped open women’s minds to the idea of ... Read More
  In 1969, the artist Allen Jones presented the public with what he referred to as a “[representation of] the experience of woman:” a chair, composed of leather, glass, and resin meant to depict a prostrate woman bound to its seat. The sadomasochistic chair was for Jones a realization of a more inclusive art form, appealing to universal erotic urges over the class barriers imposed by the fine arts. The tragic thing is that the artist grossly fails ... Read More
“There is no reason to retouch beauty. We think THE REAL YOU IS SEXY.”  So reads the closing line of aerie’s recent letter to young woman, accompanying a campaign advertising its Spring 2014 collection. The lingerie company, affiliated with American Eagle, is giving their target demographic of girls (aged 15-21) an ad campaign free of retouching. Can I get a hallelujah?!  Titled #aerieReal, the campaign attempts to deal with the beauty ... Read More
  We die for fashion design student Hanh Nhu's adorably retro fashion sense. The fashion design student, based in Rueil-Malmaison, France, gave us the rundown on her personal style and picked some key pieces she's coveting. Tell me about what you’re wearing. My mum and I made my red velvet dress, so it didn’t cost me much. There’s a random white shirt underneath, but I can’t remember the brand. I got my hat and jacket from the H&M ... Read More

We can’t get enough of Best Coast’s newest EP Fade Away, and it’s doing a decent job of holding us over until the next full-length...for now. Bethany’s uncanny ability to soothe our sorrows with her own brand of mellowed out surf-rock combined with brutally honest lyrics will never get old. Fade Away features more polished vocals, more womp-tastic songs about love and loss, and more hi-fi production value. We just couldn’t wait for ... Read More
