BUST has been a long time fan of Ari Seth Cohen's Advanced Style and the lovely ladies that it features so we were super excited to see the mainstream media pick up on and embrace this amazing blog. Some of the stylish, "advanced" ladies from the blog were featured on the Today Show yesterday and showed off their elegance, exuberance, and joy for fashion and life. They had some of the best tips, such as "You can't always look young, but you can always look elegant," and "It doesn't cost a lot of money to be stylish. Read More
When I first saw this collection by Paul & Joe Beauté, all that came out of my mouth were embarrassingly giddy exclamations of cuteness. I was instantly smitten and I guarantee you will be too. While cat lipsticks have popped up before, we now have an entire collection of cute, kitty-inspired beauty products in honor of the French label's 10th anniversary! There are lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polishes, each with a design cuter than the next. Read More
Into the Gloss interviewed the always stylish Iris Apfel to get the dish on aging gracefully and thoughts behind her new MAC cosmetics line now in stores. She talks about everything from staying busy at 90-years old to makeup tips for "advanced" ladies such as herself. One of the best parts of her interview has to be when she addresses her perceived awesomeness: "My God, these girls will say, I’m ‘cool’ or I’m ‘hot’ or whatever the expression is," she says, "And I’m not doing anything differently than what I did a long time ago.

I've seen the dreamy Sondre Lerche quite a few times, but this Williamsburg show felt different than any show I'd seen of his before. Usually solo on guitar, this modern-day crooner is consistently mesmerizing to watch. This time though, he had a backing band, and I saw him go from softly strumming to rocking out! The band made all the difference in his energy and performance. Watching Sondre alone gives the audience warm fuzzies, but watching him with a band makes you want to shake your thang more than usual. Read More
I've seen plenty of dudes sportin' the classic letterman jacket, but it's not until recently that I'm seeing ladies get in on the action as well. The bow ties, loafers, and cardigans of school years past have since become staples in many people's wardrobes, so it's only natural that this schoolyard gear would also make an appearance. The jackets were all over the runway, at shows from Alexander Wang and Phillip Lim to Moschino and Rag & Bone. They can now be seen on celebrities and stylish street stylers alike. Read More
After two years worth of criminal activity, a Colombian gang of drug smugglers have finally been apprehended in Barcelona. Turns out, they were trafficking cocaine in...wait for it...fake Manolo Blahniks. How? What? Where? Well, they basically mixed the drug with liquid until it turned into paste, molded the substance into Manolo-esque shapes and painted the "shoes" in a variety of colors. Once the shoes got to their proper owners/dealers, the dealers would somehow turn the shoes back into cocaine and start a selling. Read More
Carmen Sandiego, the glamorous detective turned traveling thief, is a cartoon lady I hold near and dear to my heart (I totally learned a lot from her!) so I'm not sure if I'm excited or annoyed to hear a live-action version starring Jennifer Lopez might be in the works. Walden Media has acquired rights to Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? and are in talks to have Jennifer Lopez play the main character. As of right now, she's only officially attached to the project as producer though. Read More
In random beauty and fashion news, Iggy Pop is officially the face of Paco Rabanne's newest fragrances, Black XS L’Excès. The fragrances will include versions for both men and women and will debut in France starting in January. The highly-anticipated commercial featuring Iggy and created by seasoned music video director, Jonas Ackerlund, will soon be appearing on TV and in movie theaters alike.  I like how menacing Iggy looks in this photo. I have no idea what this fragrance will smell like, but I'm totally sold already. Maybe it's those magical gold pants he's wearing.. Read More
There's so many street style blogs out there, it's hard to know which ones are best so when I find a really good one, I definitely try and keep up with it. TheSFStyle.com is one of my favorites. Run by JT Tran and Dyanna Dawson, the site is filled with lovely lady and handsome man "morsels" galore from two of my favorite cities, San Francisco and New York! I run a street style blog of my own, The Rebel Waltz, but I've definitely neglected it in favor of my personal style blog.

To celebrate Christian Louboutin's 20 years in the business, Fashionista.com decided to culminate some of his most outrageous shoes. With each passing shoe, I became more and more obsessed. I've always envisioned the epitome of Louboutin to be a classic black heel with a classic red sole, but these shoes are totally blowing my classic-shoe loving mind. These shoes are nothing short of fabulous works of art. From the Marie Antoinette beauties above to the googly eyed below and everything else in between, these shoes are anything but ordinarily classic. Read More
