STYLIST: CRISTINA ERLICH // MAKEUP: GITA BASS // HAIR: TED GIBSON // NAILS: MISS POP Fey's Time Tina Fey is a woman who needs no introduction, and in this interview with BUST’s editor-in-chief, the legendary comedy icon reveals why being a teen in the ’80s was so much better, what still makes her nervous, and how she knows her daughter is powerful Try to imagine a world without Tina Fey.

As feminists, representation really matters to us. That’s why we started BUST in the first place, to showcase real women—smart, funny, cool, complex women—at a time when the media completely ignored them.

Self Portrait: Dark by Sookie Sirene “My Sex, My Self” is comprised of 14 women artists, all hailing from the UK.
