If there is one motto that I’ve always believed in, it is this: You can learn a lot from the elderly set. My own grandmother was a huge inspiration to me, she had a career and a family, superb manners, lived to be 96, and always managed to look impeccable. So when I first saw the blog Advanced Style I was instantly smitten. The creator and founder, the wonderful Ari Seth Cohen, has a deep, real passion for women of a certain age who do their own thing ... Read More

Last week we blogged those "tough as nails" pics of Frances Bean that Hedi Slimane took, and everyone seemed quite enamored with them, so in honor of baby Frances' 19th birthday today(!), I decided to post these lovely shots taken by one of our favorite photographers, Rocky Schenck, to show Frances' softer side.
Enjoy, she is a beauty for sure!
Fun fact: Rocky also photographed Margaret Cho for the cover of BUST in the 90's
Also, if this post is making you feel ... Read More

We've all lost a great talent today, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home. While it does not come as a surprise to most, it is still shocking that someone so young and so clearly gifted is gone. I didn't know Amy, but did work with her once back in 07 on her press tour for Back in Black during a photoshoot for BUST. When that record came to our office, it was just so superior to anything we'd heard in years, and it was instantly loved by ... Read More

I like to complain that there is simply not enough new RAWK in the world these days, everything’s all wimpy electronic blips and bleeps, or slow, mellow folky beard rock – which is all fine and good, but sometimes you really just need an old fashioned, ass-kicking power pop rock record! So I was happy to hear about Kentucky based Sleeper Agent, who play fast, catchy and hard. Lead singer Alex Kandel’s vocals are reminiscent of Chantal from ... Read More

Last week I received a new comedy CD of Tig Notaro doing stand up from the fine folks over at Secretly Canadian entitled Good One (out Aug. 2). I wasn't very familiar with her, but I will say after listening, I am an insta-fan! Her delivery is slow, dry and fairly sarcastic, I guess she's pals with Sarah Silverman and has been on a bunch of tv shows, in any case, I'm looking forward to seeing more from Tig! Check out this hilarious clip from Good One, and below ... Read More

We’re very pleased to announce the winners of the Ladies of Polaroid contest, a photo competition sponsored by www.landcameras.com and co–sponsored by BUST. The idea was to submit photos inspired by the vintage manuals from the original Polaroid Land Camera, and the results were all pretty amazing, and so adorable!
