  Robin Wright is a badass. She demanded equal pay for her leading role as First Lady Claire Underwood in Netflix's House of Cards. In 2014, the Cards star reportedly made $480,000 per episode compared to Kevin Spacey's $500,000. Spacey plays president Frank Underwood, and the two share the same amount of lines and depth—meaning they should have equal compensation.

At one point during our Picnic at Hanging Rock–inspired shoot in the hills above Los Feliz in Los Angeles, the women of Warpaint were dressed in varying shades of ivory, wearing pink ribbons, and holding lacy parasols while looking sweet, serene, and forlorn against a muted backdrop. But that gentility is all a façade. In actuality, 27-year-old drummer Stella Mozgawa is cracking dirty jokes as she reads poetry from a prop book, and bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg, 32, is cursing at the rose she's holding after pricking her finger on a thorn.

“Just one?”“Yes! Just me! Party of One! One lady! One independent, nearsighted feminist lady!”Clad in my Jackie O-inspired cream coat and for once, red lipstick, I was taking myself out to celebrate my one year anniversary of moving to New York City. A quick dinner of mac and cheese, an Oreo whoopie pie, and I was off to see a play in the West Village. It felt so New York, and not the realistic New York I experienced in my everyday life, but the version six seasons of “Sex and the City” had promised me.

A piece of our adolescence has died: popular mall retailer Aeropostale has officially filed for bankruptcy. All across this great nation, "preppies" are sinking to their knees in their relaxed-fit slim khakis and blowing their noses on their long-sleeved polo shirts. Though a Hollister may eventually fill that empty space in the mall between Payless Shoes and Pretzel Time, no one can fill the void in our hearts.

Guerrilla artist Swoon is creating oddball masterpieces on her own terms Swoon isn't content to stay cloistered in her studio all day. Instead, the 35-year-old New Yorker has focused her energies on public art, masterminding countless graffiti pieces, sculptures, and large-scale design projects since 1999.
