Women of a certain age may remember the all-lady wrestling show Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling that aired from 1986 to 1989. Mixing wrestling, elaborate costumes, campy sketches, and really bad raps that announced each character, GLOW was over-the-top in every way. Now, it’s the genius inspiration for Netflix’s new Jenji Kohan– produced dramedy starring Alison Brie (premiering June 23). To prep for the series, we looked to the past for some off-the-ropes style inspo. Wanna get Gorgeous? Nab these picks to cop the ’80s punk-rock...

  What is Cultural Appropriation? Cultural appropriation is, in its simplest and most basic form, the act of an individual from a particular (usually privileged or dominant) culture adopting cultural/religious elements of a marginalized culture, insensibly. In doing so, valuable cultural practices or symbols are overly simplified, stripped of their meaning and significance, and can replicate systems of oppression. Yes, fashion can be violent too. This is most clearly articulated when a dominant or oppressive group takes from a culture that it is oppressing (ex: white people in the USA...

The lines between high fashion and street fashion are constantly reconfiguring, in part, because the male-dominated fashion industry is finally starting to see more gender balance. When women, like Sophia Banks who directed the video Making it On Time: Girls Skate for Christian Siriano, step into these roles, we see more interesting representations of women and the clothes they wear. At BUST, we love to see personal style represented in a way that showcases the many facets of women: you can have princess style and be sporty and damn...

Sewing was a skill I learned when I was young and kept in my back pocket for many years. I would pull out my sewing machine like a party trick, occasionally making pillows and small accessories like zipper bags. I had the knowledge and the ability to sew garments, bestowed upon me by my grandmother when I was young. However, I didn’t find a necessity in sewing until I got fat. If you’re going to boil the history of my body down to its flesh and...

We first fell in love with Niecy Nash as Deputy Raineesha Williams, the saucy, man-bashing cop on Comedy Central's Reno 911. Since then, the California-born actor, model, and producer has taken on countless iconic roles - as civil rights activist Richie Jean Jackson in 2014's Selma; as Scream Queen's special agent Denise Hemphill; and as hospice nurse DiDi on the bittersweet HBO comedy Getting On. This summer, Nash returns to the small screen for the Rashida Jones-produced Claws, a series chronicling the lives of five...

In women’s magazines today, we often see lists of summer vacation “must haves.” These lists usually include such hot weather essentials as swimsuits, sunscreen, and a romance novel or two to read at the beach. But what about ladies in the Victorian era? By the end of the 19th century, beach holidays were certainly on the rise. However, our Victorian sisters met the heat without benefit of air conditioning, skimpy clothing, or sun protection. What did they have instead? In today’s article, we look at...
