Confession: I'm totally obsessed with Rooney Mara's red carpet style. Sure, I saw that Dragon Tattoo movie and it was good in that long, super intense kind of way, but what I'm really digging at the moment is all the sartorial press and red carpet appearances by Mara, who basically kills it every time. She somehow makes pretty and edgy work together flawlessly.  NY Mag compared her to Audrey Hepburn and while many young, talented, dark haired actresses garner the comparison eventually, with Mara, I can actually see it.

BUST has been a long time fan of Ari Seth Cohen's Advanced Style and the lovely ladies that it features so we were super excited to see the mainstream media pick up on and embrace this amazing blog. Some of the stylish, "advanced" ladies from the blog were featured on the Today Show yesterday and showed off their elegance, exuberance, and joy for fashion and life. They had some of the best tips, such as "You can't always look young, but you can always look elegant," and "It doesn't cost a lot of money to be stylish. Read More

I have kind of a weird relationship with makeup. As a kid I hated it because my mom made me an enabler to her Macy’s makeup counter addiction: I’d fidget for what seemed like hours while a woman in a white lab coat paid what sounded like empty compliments to my mother’s skin as she applied "eyebrow gel" or something equally unnecessary-seeming. I remained completely disinterested in wearing it myself until two years ago, when I discovered the boundless world of Youtube makeup tutorial videos. Read More
Much like Flavor Flav, I enjoy a large “statement” necklace, so I plotzed when I saw Young Frankk’s brass chokers, which resemble giant metal collars. You can special-order them by contacting her through her Etsy store ($78, including shipping in the U.S.), where you can also find a selection of other ridiculously cute pieces. I got mine yesterday, and I’m already planning on never taking it off: The mastermind behind Young Frankk is Christine Young, a former BUST intern and an all-around rad designer and artist. Check her out on Etsy, or peep her artwork here. Read More

When I first saw this collection by Paul & Joe Beauté, all that came out of my mouth were embarrassingly giddy exclamations of cuteness. I was instantly smitten and I guarantee you will be too. While cat lipsticks have popped up before, we now have an entire collection of cute, kitty-inspired beauty products in honor of the French label's 10th anniversary! There are lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polishes, each with a design cuter than the next. Read More
Into the Gloss interviewed the always stylish Iris Apfel to get the dish on aging gracefully and thoughts behind her new MAC cosmetics line now in stores. She talks about everything from staying busy at 90-years old to makeup tips for "advanced" ladies such as herself. One of the best parts of her interview has to be when she addresses her perceived awesomeness: "My God, these girls will say, I’m ‘cool’ or I’m ‘hot’ or whatever the expression is," she says, "And I’m not doing anything differently than what I did a long time ago.

To all NYC fashionista BUST-ies:DVF, at 260 Fifth Avenue, is having a sample sale. Though I sometimes have a problem with sample sales, since they're not usually inclusive of all body types, I *do* like the idea of being somewhat able to afford well-made digs from a rad designer at more reasonable prices. I use the word "reasonable" lightly. Read More
