“OK,” says BUST photographer Ramona Rosales to actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani halfway through their shoot at a bar near his home in L.A. “Now it’s time to bring the sexy.” Raising his extremely expressive eyebrows, the 37-year-old replies, “I thought I was bringing the sexy. That was my 11.” Sexy might not be an adjective typically associated with Nanjiani, mainly because he is best known for playing the incredibly smart but socially hapless developer Dinesh on HBO’s Silicon Valley, which is wrapping up its second season.

It’ll be easier than ever to pretend that Chloe Sevigny is your real life BFF with her new 'zine, “No Time For Love.” A collection of photos of the men in her life, “No Time For Love” features Polaroids and photo booth snapshots (and lots of stickers, to protect the boys’ anonymity, and because stickers are great). “We wanted it to be more like me in my real life, who I really am… we wanted it to be something more real,” Sevigny said of the...

When winners of the Flanders Diamond Tour—the final race of the women's Lotto Cycling Cup—arrived at the podium this past Sunday, they were greeted with... women wearing bikinis!? Cyclist and journalist Marijn de Vries tweeted a picture of the podium, calling it an “utter disgrace." And it is a disgrace: The podium was meant to honor the women who had won this race.
