Loving this duo from Melbourne Australia, Super Wild Horses. You may recall Everett True wrote about them in the magazine last winter. Amy and Hayley (they keep it mysterious- no last names!) play fuzzed out garage-y, primitive pop rock, and as you can see from this video for Golden Town, they are adorable! Their first full length, Fifteen, will be released next week on HoZac records here in the US. If you like bands like The Breeders, Vivian Girls, etc, (and ... Read More
Betsey Johnson celebrated her 68th birthday last night at her boutique in Soho, and arrived in style on a hot pink bike! Don't you just love her? She's a fashion icon that got her start in the 60's with the Warhol set and has been churning out fun, ultra-girly fashions ever since. She is definitely one of our top 10, all time favorite ladies- Happy Birthday Betsey! Check out Papermag.com for more fab pics of the party. Photo by Caroline Torem Craig via ... Read More
I love Arcade Fire. And while I was one click away from buying my ticket to their U.S record release show for The Suburbs last week at Madison Square Garden, I went against my instinct and bought a bus ticket out of town instead. But it worked out in my favor regardless. Turns out director Terry Gilliam livecasted the entire show on YouTube for everyone who missed it. But the recording of the show is more than just a video recording, Gilliam seemed to layer images ... Read More
In this second installment of imagined scenarios there is no actual food on the table. The Madame of the house has called an emergency meeting. "He is doing WHAT? Running for my old job as mayor of Wasilla? On a reality TV show?" Sarah fumes. "How could you not know this? Did he not mention it while you were together?" "Mom, gaah. D'uh. You know we weren't together together. That was just for the paycheck from People. I can't live on what I make at that medical ... Read More
     It’s been a long scorcher of a summer and most of our brains have melted into a gelatinous goop that in just a few weeks we will be scraping off of the sizzling pavement to revive them for fall’s flutter. What better a way to send off the summer’s heat, and begin the quest for new, hopefully more functional, brains than a good old-fashioned game of Capture the Flag, zombie-style! This Saturday in NYC, August 14th NYCentric ... Read More

copenhagen street style

Hi there, My name is Caroline, and this is my first time posting on BUST's blog. Some info about me: I am a recent college graduate and semi un-employed/freelancer photographer, I interned for BUST two years ago, I love Pillsbury roll-out pie crusts and anything that involves the word lemon or tart (preferably together but whatever), and I'm in the process of applying to grad school. I shoot street style and lots and lots of portraiture. I am also obsessed with ... Read More
Barbie and I have a very complex relationship. The angry feminist side of me always wants to say, "Eff you, Barbie! I don't have to be pink and pretty and have big boobs and a tiny waist! I don't even look like that! Who does?!?!?" The positive feminist side (and, uh, childhood me) wants to tell the other side, " No, no, no...you don't understand...she's changing! For the better!" And then they debate, and no one ever wins. Regardless of this, I still think this ... Read More
And really, were they ever? They are, and have been, at the root of so many problems. Today, dealers in Zimbabwe began selling rough diamonds mined from a territory where human rights activists say soldiers killed 200 people, raped women and forced children into hard labor.  But even these stark facts barely qualify as news, now that the blood diamond trade has been flourishing for years. In fact, it seems the world forgot about blood diamonds until Naomi ... Read More
Longing for some more MIA shenanigans? Well, in that case, here you go! I present to you the new video for XXXO off her new album MAYA. Welcome to the ex-MySpacer's glittery HTML comment nightmare, kiddies. But seriously, it's all in good fun. I mean, I know she's a powerful lady, but I wonder if she's powerful enough to finally sink that SPAM-infested Titanic. Okay, I kid, I kid...just watch it and see for yourselves! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to ... Read More
If anyone had reason to sing the blues in the last ten years, it would be Rosanne Cash. She lost her mother, her step-mother, her father, and survived a brain tumor. Thing is, she also lost her voice. For the two and a half years she couldn't sing, Cash took to writing essays. "I always wanted to be a writer," she told the crowd gathered to hear her read last night.  Cash was introducing her new book at Barnes & Noble's "Upstairs at the Square," an ... Read More
