In the past, we’ve talked about the gratuitous nudity on Game of Thrones, and even the fact that women really do love the show (sorry to break it to ya, boys). But we’ve failed you in one aspect BUST readers: we haven’t discussed those beautiful braids and up-dos that our fave GoT ladies sport on the show. I know, I’m sorry we haven’t addressed this earlier.
Luckily, I can help change that. I am pleased to present tutorials on ... Read More

Take a close look at these pictures Google developer Isabelle Olsson posted on her Google Plus feed late last month. Wicked cute, right? That’s Google Glass in action, my friends. Yep--the same thing that this guy is wearing. Could things finally be looking up for techies who aren't okay with looking like Urkel?!
Glass, Google’s latest technological endeavor, is a smartphone-esque platform worn around the face. It uses a combination of ... Read More
I used to get all sorts of giddy at the thought of summer camp so, of course, I'm extra excited for the camp-esque launch party of she and reverie's spring/summer 2014 collection, appropriately titled "Camp Versailles." The lifestyle lounge collection is crafted in Brooklyn from soft knits, washed silks and adorable details like merit badges and delicate lace.
While adulthood has its perks, we generally like to have our glitter cupcakes and eat ... Read More
A Waco, Texas pastor named A.J. Aamir recently banned the wearing of hair weaves by staff in his church. He justified his decision by saying that "black women are getting weaves, trying to be something and someone they are not."
Um, hello controversy.
Aamir, who grew up in an Islamic household, suggests with this statement that hair weaves project a false image of the woman wearing them, and that they should therefore be prohibited in the sacred place.
The pastor ... Read More

Recently, a PR person asked me if I’d be interested in trying a new pair of orthopedic sandals. I was super into it, of course—my love of comfort footwear is long and abiding. I was a die-hard Birkenstock fan long before the fashionable crowd embraced them, and yo, Imma let you finish, but I’ve been wearing Worishofers since the only place to buy them in NYC was at an elderly-person specialty store. But when my Wellrox sandals came in the ... Read More

If the latest issue of New York Magazine is the big Fall Fashion issue, then why is Lake Bell gracing it in her birthday suit? Does the latest fall trend require me to bare my nipples to the world, too?
Correction— I suppose no nipples are necessary. Lake appears to shield those little bits with a false tattoo. Two leaves covering her nipples and a hand delicately placed over her crotch is now the height of haute couture. But seriously, where’s the ... Read More

When shopping for shoes, we're typically attracted by appearance and, of course, price point. Human rights and sustainability don't enter the equation as much as they should. But that can change thanks to Nicora Johns, a spankin' new footwear company with both environmental and labor considerations driving its business.
As a longtime cobbling connoisseur, 32-year-old founder Stephanie Fryslie decided to take matters into her own hands. Literally. Fryslie works ... Read More

Just 10 hours ago, Beyoncé Knowles debuted (via her Instagram) her new look to the world: a short, blonde pixie cut. I’m really diggin this cut, y’all, 'cause it’s nothing really over the top, but it IS just perfect for her face. I mean, Queen B looks great in anything, and this haircut is super cute! While some fans aren’t as enthusiastic about her cut, and keep referring to Miley Cyrus’s head-turning pixie, I think it looks great on her!
The ... Read More

I’ll be honest: I’m not a math fan. My high school career was all about Algebra dragging down my otherwise stellar C+ average. I can't do fractions or long division or tell time on a clock... I dislike numbers and try to avoid them at all costs.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the above shirt from Children’s Place is ridiculous. How ridiculous?
The shirt proudly proclaims that girls excel in important subjects ... Read More

The U.S. Military has begun issuing Army Combat Uniforms (ACUs) specifically tailored for the female form … finally.
Owing to a growing proportion of female soldiers in the military, these new uniforms are meant to increase professionalism, improve fit and comfort and decrease the restriction of movement that came from covering ladies with the standard, ‘burly-dude’ fit uniform.
The original ACU was built “by males for males,” states ... Read More
