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
“Women always look for true love,” explains the commercial for the “True Love Tester,” a bra designed by Japanese lingerie company Ravijour. The bra contains within its stylish cups sensors that read and transmit a woman’s changes in heart rate via bluetooth to an app that calculates your “love level.” You guessed it: when the heart gets going, the bra gets unhooking.

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 ...

The polar vortex is back, y'all! I barely survived the walk from the subway to BUST HQ—both physically and spiritually—so I did some virtual shopping while waiting for my poor hands to defrost.
Read on for the cold-busting swag I'm coveting right now:
J. Crew jacquard opera gloves, $149.99
Yes, they're a splurge, but they're wool and leather on the outside (TOASTY!) and silk-lined (ELEGANT!). Completely worth it, in my ... 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
