It's rare to hear such sincere honesty and openness from an icon scrutinized by the public eye, but impressing us is something Kim Gordon does best. In a recent interview the feminist punk rock star continues to prove that Gordon is a strong, classy lady we at BUST will never stop fangirling over. She's been featured in BUST numerous times over the years, so you can imagine our excitement to read about her life now, as she works with her new band to appease our ... Read More
Recent research has progressively shown that sex is a more emotional act for men than it is for women. Since men often communicate their feelings via action rather than speech, it makes sense that they take notice when sex diminishes in their relationships. Justin Lehmiller, a Harvard University social psychologist studying sexuality observes, "For some men, sex may be their primary way of communicating and expressing intimacy. [It] takes away their primary ... Read More
The Sweet Kili Kili Workshop crafts cute accessories with an edge. That barrette might look like a simply beautiful flower at first glance, but take a closer look and you'll find a tiny skull hidden beneath the petals.

Where else can you find a bracelet that features pearls, lace, and a mint chocolate waffle bowl? The Sweet Kili Kili Workshop's creations ... Read More
Ladies' footwear is inextricably linked to your educational success at this particular college. Apparently. Tajikistan's State Pedagogical University is now mandating that all women attending the school must wear high heels, not to exceed four inches. TSPU's head of university, Abdujabbor Rahmonov, established the new rule, declaring it would "cultivate a more polished image for the student body." And yet male students' personal attire choice is not regulated in ... Read More
On Thursday morning, about 74 girls attending Bibi Hawa Girls High School became ill after ingesting a poisonous gas. Police and school representatives transported the girls to the hospital after they fell unconscious and other classmates looked on and cried. The 8th, 10th, and 11th grade students were treated by Dr. Jamil Frotan, who stated, "We have already sent samples of their blood to the Ministry of Public Health and it will soon become clear what the reason ...

There's no denying that studs are a huge trend right now. (I ain't complainin'!) You pretty much can't step foot into store right now without being poked or prodded by some shiny protruding object that's been fastened to a pair of cut-offs or boots. (Even itty-bitty skulls have gotten in on the action.) Here's a quick tutorial on how to spice up a plain denim button-up with something that glimmers. If you prefer something less spiky, you can also try the pyramid ... Read More
We've been fans of duo songstresses Smoke Fairies since their debut release Through Low Light and Trees back in 2011. The British gals, Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies, have fine-tuned their haunting harmonized vocals and powerful dual guitarwork over the past six years. Smoke Fairies put an eerily brilliant spin on blues rock by incorporating classic folk elements into their sound, especially on tracks like "Let Me Know" and "Awake." The psych-folk ladies ...

It was back in 2004 that Dove first launched its Real Beauty Campaign aimed at changing society's accepted standards of beauty. Dove's models have realistic proportions, showcasing how beautiful women of all shapes and sizes are. You might remember one ad in particular that accentuated the unrealistic and even unhealthy sizes of Victoria's Secret models in comparison to Dove's. Now Dove has released their Real Beauty Sketches project, in which an FBI-trained ... Read More
Photoshop is often used to exaggerate and warp women's bodies into looking unnatural and adhering to impossibly high standards of beauty. Artist Nickolay Lamm and collaborating artist Nikolett Mérész decided to use photoshop to do good instead. After seeing the viral photo of Barbie without makeup by Eddi Aguirre, Lamm wanted to create more realistic versions of the more popular dolls. He deemed the Aguirre version too excessive, stating ... Read More
You know those dreams that you kind of remember but it's all a little fuzzy and you can only recall traces of images and blurs of movement? (Or maybe that's every dream. Either way...) Enter avant-garde songstress Anika's music video for "I Go To Sleep." We at BUST have loved Anika for awhile now, especially after interviewing her for our April/May of 2011 issue! The stark landscape and slow-mo action might make you feel lost in a dream of your own. The British ... Read More
