Having gained acclaim for her fearless self-expression, it is no surprise that her personal aesthetic reflects her eclectic artistry.

Former Bust intern, Buffi Jashanmal, was one of the designers called in to help design seven dresses for Lady Gaga’s upcoming music video. Avant-garde fashion label House of Diehl was asked to make the dresses in only five days, and Buffy was called in to help complete the nearly impossible task. Some designers pay up to $100,000 for Gaga to wear their clothes, so this is a huge deal for unknown fashion designers looking for a big break.

Watch fashion inspiration Ilona Royce Smithkin in fab fashion blog Advanced Style's new video.

As far as I’m concerned, there is little to nothing not worth analyzing when it comes to pop culture.

Let us briefly explore the models of the 90’s, who would, most likely, never in a million years be models today, as their looks are currently “out.”Despite an intense love and obsession ... Read More

In celebration of the opening of their new Soho NY store, I got to check out the Spring line of Dr. Martens and I was super impressed!

From more refined, suede desert boots, to feminine wedges, to glam heeled sandals, there is ... Read More

Some street style I shot while visiting a friend in Boston. I really want to go back, I had such a lovely time.
Maybe it's because I've spent the last four years here but Fall in New York looks nothing like Fall in Boston. The trees turn such beautiful colors- saffrons, rich magentas and emeralds- I kind of wanted to eat the leaves. Or take them home with me and stare at the pretty colors all day long.
But I've digressed- back to street style! ... Read More

On cold, sunless afternoons the BUST office can seem more like a dark cave than a magical island run by women. Despite the dreariness outside there was nothing but enchantment inside as the interns were transformed into psychedelic tree nymphs with the help of some pretty sassy spandex.
