  Unless you've been living under a fashion rock, you've probably heard about Target's newest designer collaboration with Jason Wu. It's cute, sophisticated and hits stores this Sunday, February 5th! The collection has gotten quite a bit of buzz in the past month for its French new-wave-inspired dresses and wonderfully charming accessories. I thought I'd share the adorable new commercial featuring a cartoon cat named Milu.

Until yesterday, I didn't know that camel toe was a problem that you needed a product to solve, but if you've been wondering how to stop your clothes from displaying your crotch crack, the Smoothgroove is here! Fashionista is reporting---with an understandable tinge of disbelief---that the front-wedgie-eliminating wonder (created by a woman named Susan Laurie) is finally available for purchase. SmoothGroove is like a sports cup that covers the vulva to make it look smooth and even. The cup is made of medical grade polymer that forms to your shape. Read More
I'm coveting at least four of these iPhone cases by Brooklyn-based illustrator Sirin Thada. I first saw her art on Tumblr a few months ago, and was struck by her sense of humor (the "Animal Print" drawing was the first thing I saw). All of her designs have that same playfulness, cute but not too cutesy. The only problem is that I don’t have an iPhone yet ─ I still have this stupid old sliding-keyboard dumbphone. It’s barely a step up from two rusty tin cans and a waxed string, and it draws jeers from my peer group. Read More
VICE Magazine calls itself "The Definitive Guide to Enlightening Information." It didn’t surprise me, then, to hear that instead of covering the traditional corners of the fashion world (think Paris or London) VICE was devoting its Fashion Week coverage to the unseen fashion shows that normally don’t pop up on our global radar. The web series Fashion Week Internationale takes a look at the unconventional approaches to fashion in places like Cambodia, Pakistan, and, most recently, Nigeria. Read More
  I love AbFab in a "naming-my-future-daughter-Saffron" kind of way. The British sitcom about two fashion-obsessed middle-aged career women is freakin' hilarious and perfectly acted by Jennifer Saunder (Edina)---who also created the show--- and Joanna Lumley (Patsy). So it was absolutely awesome to see that, in honor of their return to TV this year, the fabulous and funny champagne-guzzling, fashion-worshipping Brits are making a splash as the cover girls for award-winning jewelry designer Alexis Bittar’s Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.

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
