        Lewis' newest release 'See Fernando,' a 60's spy-themed parody video full of backdrops with splashes of neon color, car chases, and slow-mo choreographed fight scenes. Lewis herself makes a debut about halfway through the video in an adorable retro Pan Am-esque flight attendant outfit, quickly transitioning into a short trench coat with oval shades and a breezy scarf around her head that keeps her identity under wraps. Yes, her style is most definitely as alluring as the catchy music. I like this video so much I'm gonna watch it again now.
This morning Bruno visited the Today Show only to have an apparent snafu on air six minutes in and have the show quickly cut to commercial. Although before that, you can hear the staff of the Today Show laugh along to everything he says behind the camera. Interestingly, two days ago Sacha Baron Cohen went on Letterman for an interview, dropping his Austrian fashionista alter ego.
This post goes out to all our pinup loving girls, and especially Celeste, the BUST intern with a love for peep toes and pumps, sweetheart necklines and lots of leg. Painted Pinups is a photo studio based out of Orange County that specializes in recreating the classic pinup looks of the 40's and 50's through individual photo shoots or group parties . Personally, I would love to have a pinup extravaganza for a birthday or bachelorette party.
    I'm a sucker for cool gals playing that good ol' indie folk rock so Mia Riddle's album, Tumble and Drag, gets a lotta play on my iTunes. Check her music out and if you're in NY, catch her and her band tomorrow night at one of my favorite Brooklyn venues, the Bell House. And if good jams weren't enough to bring you out, they'll be serving free Brooklyn lager from 7:30 - 8:30.
Have you heard of Gertrude Berg? Didn't think so. Unfortunately this feminist media mogul of yesteryear has completely disappeared from our consciousnesses. Thankfully, a new documentary, 'Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg,' is premiering this Friday in NYC that brings to light the life of this admirable lady. Gertrude was best known for writing, producing and staring in her own TV show in the 40s and 50s, Yoo Hoo Mrs. Goldberg, which was the first character driven domestic sitcom to be featured on TV.
When I went to see Dali: Painting and Film at MoMA last year, I was fascinated by an animated short film that Dali collaborated with Walt Disney to create. It was called Destino and was a 7 minute long love story of Chronos and his ill-fated longing for a mortal female. While Dali started working on storyboards in 1945, the studios' financial woes from World War Two put the project on hold indefinitely. It was until the late 90s that Disney animators took on the task of deciphering Dali's cryptic storyboards to produce the film. Only 18 seconds of Dali's original animation remains.
HOLY CRAP LITTER SF! No wonder everyone's all a-titter about this San Francisco-based accessories line + store--anyone with a penchant for draping gold chains over anything that'll stand still long enough to hold them (ahem, me, ahem) is destined to fall truly, madly, deeply for these rad girls, their ultra-rad jewelry and just as ultra-rad blog. From slinky chain garters to MJ-reminiscent shoulder pieces to head, hair and even shoe jewelry, Litter SF is creating some of the most inventive, insanely sexy accessories I've seen in years.
Get this: a specis of Amazonian ants is saying 'no thanks' to men and sex for life. That's right, the rare species, known as Mycocepurus smithii, have actually evolved beyond the need for males in their population! The ants reproduce asexually by cloning themselves, and each ant population is an exact replica of the queen. Anna Himler , the biologist from the University of Arizona who led the research on the ants, explained that there are advantages to the critters' sexless life.
Omg, you guys, have you heard about how much straight dudes love it when girls in knee socks kiss each other? And get all pushy and slick in a pool together with blood all over their prom dresses? And look deeply into the camera while moaning 'you want it?' and unzipping their sweatshirts oh-so-slowly? Well, someone in charge of marketing Diablo Cody's new cheerleader-turns-into-mass-cannibalistic-man-killer flick sure has. Trailer NSFW. Here at BUST we have a crush of epic proportions on Diablo Cody.
 Journalist Gbemisola Olujobi asks of cosmetic genital surgery, in her recent essay titled 'Designer Vaginas' : 'what are labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction if not female circumcision?' Well, damn. I never had made a connection before between the increasing trend for women in Euro-American countries to get procedures to make themselves more 'neat, clean, and tidy' and the not-dissimilar procedures performed on infants in many African countries--and around the globe. It just so happens we are all up on this shizzle in BUST'S latest issue.
