While watching Hallmark's I Love Lucy marathon in honor of Lucille Ball's 100th birthday yesterday, I found myself swooning over Lucy's outfits. Her ensembles are classic, of course, but many of the elements (sheer, lace, sweetheart necklines, polka dots, tea-length hems, etc.) seem to be particularly on-trend at the moment.

Beth Ditto, Bust cover-girl, front-woman for The Gossip, and overall feminist badass, has released a four-track solo EP with Simian Mobile Disco.

The full self-titled EP, released by label Deconstruction Records can be bought as a digital download or a physical 12" vinyl at Beatport, an online music store. A  full-length ... Read More
Tomorrow evening Gitana Rosa Gallery in Williamsburg will kick off the fall season with a multimedia exhibition revolving around the male nude. Whether exalted in Greco-Roman times as a figure of heroism or dismissed as an unneeded presence of male dominance, the male body is a fascinating subject. "Hung" recognizes this and the artists featured in the exhibition are working to challenge both men's and women's perceptions of the male nude. Where do we stand in ... Read More
I’m not sure how many of you had the unfortunate experience of being shipped off to camp for a few weeks out of the summer, but for me the trauma lingers on like the scent of insect repellent and sweat after a half dozen games of Capture the Flag. Mom and Dad may have partied it up while you spent your formidable years making birdfeeders out of peanut butter and pinecones, and coaxing fellow campers into eating mysterious red berries, but now it’s your turn for ...

Above: Vockah Redu with Energizah and Shortee Whop Critics and fans alike have been itching to hear something new in the Rap genre for years, and New Orleans has stepped up to the plate to deliver. Turns out that Louisiana has been a hip-hop incubator for the past decade; dotingly cultivating a set of grade-A chicks, dudes and chick-dudes. Well, the veritable golden egg has hatched and the artists of Sissy Bounce are shouting out, "I'm ready! And I'm tellin' ... Read More

Although one of the more memorable moments in a teenager's life, the prom can be a stressful occasion, especially for girls who can't afford to dress the part of the formal affair.  Luckily there's organizations like Operation Fairy Dust, a New York City charity organization that accept gently worn dresses and then donates them to young women who want to look their best on that special night. They've already donated over 20,000 dresses and are always in need ... Read More
