There’s no doubt that ’90s trends have returned in full force, but when we look back on the oh-so-iconic decade, we can thank one particular trio of ladies for starting most of ’em: TLC. Don’t believe us? Well, in lieu of tonight’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story biopic on VH1, we rounded up some of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas’ best looks to show how seriously relevant their style still is today.
By now you’ve (hopefully!) peeped the Shoe Cult lookbook featuring tons of killer NYC gals showing off our latest must-have kicks, but what you didn’t see was all the adorable moments that went down behind the scenes. Luckily, we created some awesome GIFs featuring Vashtie, Christina Caradona, Venus X, Lua Perez, Miyako Bellizzi, Brandee Brown, Olivia Bee, Eiko Hara, and Alice Lancaster to make it feel like you were totally there.
Dudes in bands + Australian accents + dope outfits = every reason why we love Jagwar Ma. The Sydney-based trio released their debut album Howlin’ this summer, and we’ve been obsessed with Jono Ma, Gabriel Winterfield, and Jack Freeman ever since. Nasty Gal Photo Editor Cat Roif was lucky enough to chat up guitarist/beatmaster Jono about his favorite T-shirts, going on tour, and all-things Australia, so check it out below! (Bonus: Really, really pretty pictures.)

Sure, we may not be able to drop everything and travel to Europe, but we found the next best thing. NG Studio Production Intern and UCLA student Keely Murphy headed across the pond to study Studio Art at Central Saint Martins in London this fall, and (lucky for us!) she’s sharing every last detail. Check out the latest excerpts from her diary, and stay tuned for future European adventures over the next couple months!
Another day, another Shoe Cult disciple! This morning, we’re gettin’ down with NYC DJ/singer/total babetron Eiko Hara. When she’s not mastering her less-is-more ’90s aesthetic, she contributes to Elle Japan and makes some of the sickest mixes to boot. There’s (truly!) nothing better than a fashionable girl with a great taste in tunes, so we had Eiko create the ultimate Nasty Gal playlist—and, of course, share some of her killer style tips along the way.

Sure, you might’ve peeped the latest Shoe
…whatever we want. —Lua Perez from Le Happy
When we unveiled our newest crop of Shoe Cult disciples yesterday, we were just dying to know more about these badass NYC babes. So, all week long we’re digging a little deeper to see what makes these ladies really tick. First up? Le Happy fashion blogger Luanna Perez-Garreaud. One peep at her site, and you’ll see she has a serious penchant for mostly black, ’90s-inspired ensembles paired with sky-high creepers and crimson-tipped strands. The coolest part about Lua, though, is that she relocated to Brooklyn only a couple years ago—from Peru! She was awesome enough to share all her favorite spots in Lima—the capital where she grew up—and now we’re officially in need of a vacation.

Nothing makes us more giddy than the arrival of a new fashion mag—especially when it’s created by two awesome ladies with a killer aesthetic. When Aussie Imogene Barron and Kiwi Lucy Rose relocated to L.A., they launched Junk to “showcase the diverse talent that this inspiring city produces.” Long story short: they did a dang good job. One flip through the mag, and you’re flooded with anything-but-ordinary photo spreads and on-point musings from contributors like Ed Templeton, Gusmano Cesaretti, and Nabil Elderkin, just to name a few. The best part? As of today, you can officially swipe up the magazine for yourself. Get a peek of what’s inside below!
