Only my second fashion show to date, the 2011 BFA Parsons Fashion Show was certainly an exciting one! This is a show that has previously help launch the careers of designers such as Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler at one of the most renowned fashion schools in the world. Other designer alums include Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som, and host/speaker of the event, Reed Krakoff. As the show began, I felt like I was bombarded with fashion, my head turning every which way. Read More
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend Parsons The New School For Design's BFA Fashion Show where I saw fashion galore! A more detailed post about some of the designers featured will soon be coming up, but for now, enjoy some of the super stylish audience members who attended. From stylish students and family to various media and press, you'd think it was Fashion Week the way audience members brought their own style to the mix. Read More

I previously blogged about the opening of the Alexander McQueen exhibit and the fashion extravaganza that is the Met Gala, but the exhibit itself deserves an entry all its own. There are people who are undeservingly called “genius” and “true artist” once they’ve died, but Alexander McQueen was not one of them. From day one, McQueen was a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry, one for the books I’d say. Since his death in 2010, he’s become a tragic, iconic figure of fashion whose mark on the world is obviously still felt. Read More
I don’t know how many times I’ve almost tripped on broken sidewalks and holes in the ground. It’s not only annoying and possibly dangerous, it’s not very pretty! Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to change that and create some adorably unusual (& colorful!) street art. Read More
As much as I loved the excitement of McQueen on Middleton, the fashion from last night’s opening of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in conjunction with the annual Met Gala is more exciting to me than all the royal wedding dresses or oscar gowns in the world! You see less celebs playing it safe and instead bringing real glamour to the red carpet. I’m glad to see that just because it’s spring, the time of simple, flirty frocks, everyone still brought the drama. Read More
I’m not sure where this came from in the tumblr universe. I traced it back as far as tumblr blog, kayliafisher, but I thought the creative readers of BUST would enjoy this fun D.I.Y. nail project! One blogger, Lost In Drawers, gave it a try with some really cute results. She also noted what she would do different in her blog post. In an attempt to find the originator of this idea I’m glad I found one more cute blog to add to my blogroll! (A Texas one at that!).
Here are the D.I.Y. Nail Directions: cut squares of newsprint larger than nails. apply a base coat of polish. Read More
Ever wonder where that sexy lady silhouette via trucker mudflaps came from? Fashion designer Ed Allen has come forward as the guy who called her Mom. Now trademark owner, Allen claims that his father, Stewart, a long-haul trucker originally created the image to decorate his rig with his wife, Rachel Ann’s likeness.
The original photo was a vacation picture of Allen's mom in a bathing suit on the beach. Read More

I’ve just come across this new website, HelloGiggles, founded by actress/muscian, Zooey Deschanel, producer, Sophia Rossi, and blogger/web personality, Molly Mcaleer. So far content is limited to this Mother’s Day video, but they promise more to come! It’s set to be, “the ultimate entertainment destination for smart, independent and creative females.” They also note that the site will be super lady-friendly unlike most of “boy’s club content” that makes up a lot other entertainment sites. So far, so good it seems. Read More
