Retro pin-ups can be cute or sexy, classy or silly. However, one thing they’re usually not is scary. But with artist Eva Stenram’s alterations, you might not ever be able to look at pin-up photos the same way again.
In Stenram’s series “Parts,” she edits photos by leaving the whole background, but removing every part of the featured woman from the scene—except one leg.
Stenram explains her intent in her artist’s statement: "The leg becomes a kind of prop or decoration within the interior…. Read More

Surprises come in all sizes—some as small as a box full of archived negatives, recounting a female sub-culture in London that was almost forgotten. Meet Ken Russell, who originally wanted to be a ballerina but turned to another kind of art when his father squashed his dream—photography. The freelance photographer-turned-film director soon became known for breaking the rules in his craft, producing some of post-war London's most expressive work. Read More

Street style blogs are everywhere (The Sartorialist, Street Peeper, and Stil in Berlin are some our personal faves.) They may seem like a modern meme, but actually, street fashion photography has been around much longer—maybe even as long as photography itself. Mashable recently curated some photos by Edward Linley Sambourne, all taken during the Edwardian era in and around Kensington, London, featuring ladies in their amazing #ootd. Read More

Blistering musical auteur and former BUST cover girl PJ Harvey is all set to lay down her new album—over the course of a month-long exhibit entitled Recording in Progress, and in front of a live audience. After a nearly four-year recording hiatus following the release of 2011’s Let England Shake (which also won her a second Mercury Prize, nbd), Harvey’s newest endeavor and tenth record will waver between a studio LP and a live album.

Our BUST Craftacular is a week away from going down in London; it’s only natural we pay some homage to a Union Jack-sporting female.
You know all of those cool photographs you see on your Tumblr and Pinterest dashboards that show ever-fashionable mods, punks, and rockabillies? Of course you do! You've probably even re-blogged a couple to boot.
It's possible Anita Corbin took the images you've been looking at; she photographed the "informal uniforms" of different female subcultures in London about thirty years ago. Read More

We've all seen it. At some point in our lives we've passed by a group of people trying to guilt the universe out of being Pro-Choice. At best this is mildly annoying, but usually these activists, who utilize gory posters, "dead" baby dolls, and shaming, make women feel criminal.
Journalist Sunny Hundal was in for a renewal of faith in humanity when he started filming anti-abortion activists ( members of Abort67) outside of a London clinic. Read More

Lingerie shopping is tricky even in the best circumstances. Choosing between fits, style types, fabrics and colors can be exhausting on its own. But for those of us who don’t fall into the relatively narrow range of Caucasian skin tones that most "flesh" or "nude"-toned lingerie is manufactured for, things can be even more complicated.
Seeing a huge need for skin-toned lingerie that could benefit all women of color, Ade Hassan founded Nubian Skin. The new lingerie line includes T-shirt bras, briefs, push-up bras, lace shorts and even tights. Read More

Not gonna lie to y'all, there are definitely days when I would prefer to wear both my sweatpants and my down comforter outside my apartment instead of doing the civilized thing of putting on "normal" pants. Like my sweatpants are second class citizens or something. Rude.
