Thursday, October 24, 2013 Guest Edit: Halloweenie Makeup With Steaktooth
Just when I thought I was done slathering foundation all over my face for the sake of blogging, makeup artist Alana Dawn hit me up to try out some Halloween looks. Since I only got a whopping five zits from what happened after our last hang out (my fault—I have sensitive skin), I figured, “Why the hell not? What else am I doing?” (The answer: nothing, really.) Annnd, because I love multi-tasking, I tricked one of my besties into a hangout session where I also exploited her free time by tempting her over with chocolate donut-flavored coffee only to have her run out the door on the way to work still scrubbing anime makeup off her eyes. So, if you’re still stumped on what wear this Halloween, here are my two new favorite looks that really only require rubbing glue stick on your eyebrows and some $20 contact lenses to set them off.

Thursday, October 24, 2013 Nasty Guys: Drake: Started From The Bottom
We’re really, really into Drake here at Nasty Gal HQ, and today also happens to be his 27th birthday. This (obviously) means we needed to pay homage to our main man on his big day, so we gathered some oh-so-adorbs photos to show that Drizzy did, in fact, “start from the bottom.” From a bright-eyed baby (decked out in the best ’90s duds!) to a too-cool-for-school 8th grader at Degrassi to a suited-up GQ gentlemen, you’ll see why we’ve loved our Champagne Papi every step of the way.
Wednesday, October 23, 2013 NGTV: Meet The Cult: New York
Just when you thought you knew our NYC Shoe Cult Ambassadors inside and out, we decided to shake things up a bit. In our latest video, we chat with our East Coast faves—Vashtie, Christina Caradona, Venus X, Lua Perez, Miyako Bellizzi, Brandee Brown, Olivia Bee, Eiko Hara, and Alice Lancaster—about their female inspiration, why it’s great to be a girl in 2013 and, of course, boys.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Role Model: Meet The Cult: Vashtie
Sure, our NYC Shoe Cult lookbook may be filled with some seriously good-looking gals, but there’s so much more to these ladies than their ability to put a killer outfit together. Meet Vashtie: A jack-of-all-trades who works simultaneously as a director, designer and creative powerhouse. Whether you know it or not, Vashtie’s influence on pop culture is huge—she’s directed videos for Justin Bieber, Solange and Joey Bada$$, just to name a few. Check out some of our favorites below!
