The weather might be getting chilly, but BUST’s Oct/Nov issue is hot as all get-out! Our cover features the gorgeous Lizzy Caplan, star of Showtime’s steamy series Masters of Sex, who first won our hearts in Mean Girls (Janis Ian 4ever). Inside the issue, we’ve got interviews with Grammy Award-winning British diva Estelle, game-changing writer/director Jill Soloway, the Daily Show’s hilarious Aasif Mandvi, and Twitter superstar Megan Amram. But that’s just the beginning: we go inside the world of female “ganja-preneurs,” show off our favorite fall fashions, learn the amazing history of some spooky-as-hell lady ghosts, and take a look at a gender-bending tradition in Afghanistan that you’ll have to read about to believe.
