Our latest cover girl, the lovely Liv Tyler, made the scene last Monday for the premiere of the dark and absurd comedy SUPER, along with her pops, and co-stars Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page.
SUPER is yet another take on the masked super hero genre ala Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. In SUPER, Liv plays an addict that succumbs to an evil drug dealer, played hilariously by Kevin Bacon (he is exceptionally sleazy and awesome in this role) while her ex, schlumpy ... Read More

Bill Cunningham New York is a wonderful documentary directed by Richard Press that explores the idiosyncratic street photographer, Bill Cunningham. The camera follows the octogenarian around on his bicycle as he zooms in and out of traffic, and as he stops frequently to shoot interesting looking fashions on the streets. He’s been working as a street shooter for the New York Times since 1978. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved looking at his pages in ... Read More

"Can I please sit down?" Check out the poster that graphic designer (and former BUST Art Director) Elizabeth Carey Smith from The Letter Office created based on her four month survey of riding the rails of the MTA while pregnant. Using graphs and pie charts, Smith tracked the number of seats offered on certain trains, breaking it down by gender, train line and time of day. It's not surprising that some trains were worse than others, and that out of 108 rides, she ... Read More

EXENE CERVENKA ‘THE EXCITEMENT OF MAYBE’ (Bloodshot Records)
Exene Cervenka is always expressing herself in various artistic forms. She’s a published poet, collage artist, painter and of course what she’s most know for, making music and wring lyrics. This being first and foremost with X, the seminal L.A. Punk band (which she is a founding member of), as well as Alt Country group The Knitters, her other punk band Auntie Christ, another ...

Oh how we've missed the sunny guitar pop stylings of Anna Waronker. The Los Angeles singer/songwriter, who issued her eponymous solo effort nearly a decade ago, after fronting that dog. for a number of years during the '90's alt-rock heyday, has returned with the richly reflective "California Fade." A host of longtime collaborators lend their talents, including her hubby [OFF! and Redd Kross bassist] Steven McDonald, sister-in-law [Go-Go's guitarist and her fellow ... Read More

As we continue to freeze our butts off up here in NYC while patiently awaiting Spring, we could not help but notice the fabulous looks that Rebecca Turbow has in the works for Fall 2011 – these fashion people live in the future! I love the gothy palette (hello gray and black, we're friends already) on these mod little numbers, and the model here is just too adorable. Photographed by BUST contributor Aliya Naumoff, I can't wait to get my hands on that cape, ... Read More

On their second full-length album, Reptilians (out on March 8th on Polyvinyl), Starfucker makes a solid attempt to gain notoriety for something other than their radio-unfriendly handle, but they mostly stay within familiar synth-heavy, dance-pop territory. First single “Julius” stands out for its glittery sound effects and infinitely hummable melody, while tracks like “Bury Us Alive” and “Astoria” are readymade for Friday nights ... Read More

I was extremely stoked to get an invitation to attend the Rodarte Fall 2011 Runway show today.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the creative sisters behind the label presented a dreamy and inspirational collection that was very "prairie princess" inspired. I saw a lot of hand crafted embellishments, embroidered geometric patches and sweaters that totally looked like hand knit 1970's relics from a lucky thrift score.
The palette was all earthy taupe's, pale blues and ... Read More
