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.

The Fred Perry label continues it's nearly fifty-year old romance with the music industry as it teams up British songstress and style icon Amy Winehouse for a new line of retro chic clothing. The collaboration puts a feminine twist on the classic label, incorporating the brand's staple looks with Winehouse's unconventional sex appeal.
In hindsight, the pairing of the two seems obvious and inevitable like Kate Moss for Topshop or the Cardigans' Nina Persson for ... Read More

Being a southern transplant to New York City, I find fall one of the trickiest of the seasons. You would think winter would be difficult but no no, it's not, you just freeze and get to play in the snow and sometimes slip and fall on the sidewalks. Winter is easy because it's consistent, consistently cold. Fall is a tempestuous mistress of a season, hot one day, cold the next. Or deliciously pleasant in the bright buttery sunlight and brisk and prickling the shade. ... Read More

For those who don't know, LUSH is a fresh, handmade cosmetics company that originated in London several years ago and has now reached cult status. The company is by no means a cult, but when you mention its name, a wide spectrum of people will turn glass eyed and immediately reach for their purse or wallet. In an attempt to bring the loyal lovers of their popular bath bombs and soaps to a heightened frenzy of buyer's lust, co-founder Mark Constantine and resident ... Read More

Search "Betty White" on youtube and amidst clips of her referring to Sarah Palin as a "crazy bitch" on Craig Ferguson's show, making fun of the Facebook-mania when she hosted Saturday Night Live, and calling herself a whore on The George Lopez Show, you will now find a recently released promotional video for her clothing line, a collection of t-shirts and hoodies sporting images of Betty's very own face. The clip features White as a far-from-polite fashion ... Read More

This past Tuesday was the Rodarte show. The location was top secret and wasn't revealed to the anyone until Monday morning. A little bird texted me the location (a telegram, a bird song and smoke signals would've take way too long). I made my way over to what I consider one of the best and most important shows during New York fashion week to take some street style photos.
Per usual, larger images here. Anna Dello Russo, Editor of Vogue NipponAnna ... Read More

I’ll admit it’s nearly impossible for me to discuss New York's Fashion Week without a hint of cynicism, but when I stumbled upon the Gothamist’s tribute to Fashion Weeks passed I couldn’t help but drool all over my keyboard. The NYC blog does a virtual time warp as it takes a look back at three memorable decades of fashion: the 1960s, ‘50s and ‘40s, and the couture coveted by women around the world.
As you click through ... Read More

One somewhat unusual event this Fashion Week took place Sunday at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, with the screening of Voula Duval's debut short "The Trophy Wife." "The Trophy Wife" follows an Upper East Side woman's chance meeting with a "tomboy" music producer, and ends with the two women's new-york-minute romance. Now I'm fairly new to this whole thing, but it seems to me that short films by first-time directors, not to mention short films by female ... Read More

Some photographs I've snapped while wandering around the Meatpacking district and Soho during Fashion Week. Most of these were taken right outside of Lorick's presentation and the rest near McNally Jackson on Prince street. Per usual, high res images here. That is the amazing ... Read More
