Friday Fun or Fug

BY Intern Caroline in Style

It's a funny time of year. We're on the cusp of spring and way sick of sluggin' around in our winter layers. Fashion Month is in full swing, acting as a sort of rejuvenating dose of inspiration to fight the winter bleh's. Many trendsters take flights of fashion fancy in this transitional time, which can be both good and bad. Let's decide if these trends are fun or fug.  Embellished Tights Like I said, it's the time of year when winter seems ... Read More
Marie Colvin, a legendary reporter and true badass, was killed yesterday by Syrian shelling in rebel stronghold Homs. Colvin was respected by all as one of the most courageous correspondents of her generation. She dedicated her life to disseminating stories from war zones, refusing to water down the information for mass media consumption. In her long career with the Sunday Times of London, Colvin was known to throw herself into the fray of conflicted regions, ... Read More
The GOP debate audience may be one of the most interesting characters in this primary election cycle. They kind of remind me of an old-timey angry mob, unabashedly reveling in their hatred.  So far they've conspired the death of a hypothetical uninsured man, booed an active duty soldier for being openly gay, and cheered wildly at the mere mention of the death penalty. I wouldn't be surprised if one of these days the camera panned around to show the crowd ... Read More
"DEAR MEDIA.. Ur plan is not working.. I'm not going anywhere so get used to me," Chris Brown warned in a twitter rampage that was later deleted. In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet. Honestly, which media is he addressing? The one who let him perform multiple times at the Grammys only three years after he assaulted his girlfriend so severely she was hospitalized? The media that sent him home with an award? The media that allowed his newest record to ... Read More
BUST favorites Spank Rock and Santigold teamed up for "Car Song" on his 2011 album Everything is Boring and Everyone is a Fucking Liar, and now there's a spooky music video to go with the song. The video, directed by photographer/filmmaker Luis Gispert, highlights pretty much everything we love about Spank Rock: his irreverent sense of humor and playful eccentricity. The climax of the video features Santigold needlepointing while two girls cover each other in ... Read More
This picture aptly summarizes precisely what is wrong with the on-going reproductive rights debate in America. This is a panel put together by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee which is holding a circus hearing titled “Lines Crossed: Separation of Church and State. Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience?” today. Notice how not a single person on ... Read More
Add Virginia to the list of states where lawmakers want to make it easier to be a fertilized egg than a woman. Rather than focusing on education or job creation in light of the worst recession since the 1930's, yet another state legislature has turned its energy and resources against our inalienable right to choose what happens inside our own bodies.    The Virginia House of Delegates passed two controversial anti-choice bills, sending them to the Senate. ...

My mother has all these great cooking stories from her girlhood involving her Italian aunts making homemade ravioli out of giant volcanos of flour right on the kitchen table. Wild stuff! One of her greatest regrets is never mastering the art of handmade pasta while she had the chance, so a few Christmases ago I bought her a cookbook called Cooking with Italian Grandmothers. She opened the box, looked at me and said, "Are you pregnant?" She totally missed the really ... Read More
Earlier today the White House announced a new compromise on the controversial Affordable Care Act. In a press conference, President Obama announced a change of course meant to satiate embroiled Catholics and conservatives who felt elements of the new law were a violation of conscience. Namely, the part where employers (even those with religious affiliations) must provide employees with insurance including contraceptives.  "No woman's health should depend on ... Read More
Yesterday the Pentagon announced new measures that will bring women serving in the military closer to combat than ever before. With the new policy implemented, women will be able to fill thousands of jobs, including medics, intelligence officers, and helicopter pilots, previously reserved for men only. Women have been allowed to serve in these positions at the brigade level since 1994, but this new policy assigns women to the battalion level, which is much smaller ... Read More
