Ah, the good ol' days: pre-internet, post-century turn and right up in the middle of some blatant sexism. Don't you miss these simpler times? Well, we've compiled these 21 vintage ads that will have you facepalming.
I love horror movies. This may surprise people belied by my bunny-like punim and Snow White, sing-songy voice. But women don’t have to dress in black to be fans of the macabre. So, listen, even if blood and guts are not your cuppa, RIGHT NOW is when you should be watching and talking about these killer women directors who are bringing a new type of terror to a genre traditionally dominated by dudes. Here are my TOP FIVE MUST SEE HORROR MOVIES of recent years DIRECTED BY WOMEN. These movies are light on exploitation and torture, and heavy on psychological and emotional fear.
There were a million reasons as to why my last relationship was bound to fail, but the most significant, the singular comment that brought the romance all to a grinding halt, was when my ex said, “I think Carrie Brownstein is overrated.” The relationship was severed immediately. I’m typically patient and understanding when it comes to most things, but this…this was unforgiveable. To combat such a ludicrous comment, I’ve compiled a list of reasons as to why we here at BUST adore the multi-talented mega-babe and former BUST cover girl, Carrie Brownstein.
  Now this is the type of lingerie ad we like to see! British lingerie brand Curvy Kate, which carries bras in cup sizes D through K, has released a beautiful campaign called #TheNewSexy starring cis and trans women of different ages, sizes and abilities.
St. Vincent has taken the theme song of our beloved TV seniors, Andrew Gold’s “Thank You for Being a Friend,”and made it into an eerie dirge. Is it strange? Absolutely. Amazing? Of course. It is pure St. Vincent. I remade the "Golden Girls" theme song into a dirge. #thankyouforbeingafriend pic.twitter.com/1UaKx6oGgk — St. Vincent (@st_vincent) July 11, 2016   The track is an ambient instrumental, complete with haunting synths, a different sound than we're used to hearing from St. Vincent.
Missy Elliott—the one and only, Queen of hip hop, magnificent artist, and female trailblazer—received VH1's Hip-Hop Honors last night during a two-hour special titled "All Hail the Queens." To celebrate Missy Elliott, performers such as Eve, Nelly Furtado, Trina, Remy Ma and Lil’ Mo sang a medley of her greatest hits, like "Work It," "Get Ur Freak On," and latest song, "WTF." Missy's speech expressed thanks to her supporters and inspirations, Queen Latifah, Lil' Kim, and Salt-n-Pepa, and she ended by dedicating the award to the late Aaliyah.
  In this week's tale of the unsung hero, we have fresh-faced, intelligent designer Christian Siriano placed on a pedestal—and, like any other skeptic of the media, he's using it as a soapbox. In an exclusive interview with Refinery29 yesterday, he spoke about the custom dress he made for Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, its controversy, and what led to international fame and glory for his particular brand.

On her website NaturalGirlsUnited.com, Byrd sells mass-market fashion dolls whose straight hair has been replaced with hand-made afro-centric styles like puffs, locs, and twists. Through this small but passionate Oakland, CA-based enterprise, launched in 2011, Byrd aims to help children of color recognize their true beauty. “As a young girl, I wondered if I was beautiful,” says Byrd. “I had African American dolls. But their features looked Caucasian and they had long straight hair.
  If you've ever been attached to any TV show in your entire life, you've probably looked up the best TV kisses of all time to see if your favorite couple has made the list. Well, I spent a few hours (***highly recommend this research, BTW) watching the "best" TV kisses in history and, frankly, they're all the same. White man. White woman. Cisgender. Young. Yes, we all love the misadventurous romance between Friends' Ross and Rachel, as well as the spicy spontaneity of New Girl's Nick and Jess. But not every steamy TV kiss falls into the mayonnaise and saltines variety.
Imagine yourself on a gorgeous beach: The sun is shining, you have a steamy, hot copy of BUST and you've just reached the one-handed reads section, and tucked into your chair's convenient cupholder is one of these bad girls. Well, whether you're at a beach or at home, thinking about beaches, you can make one of these cocktails to go with your wicked, sandy fantasies. The drinks were created by Lynn Calvo, a Long Island bar owner and mixed drink aficionado, as part of her new book, Tiki With A Twist: 75 Cool, Fresh, and Wild Tropical Cocktails.
