Tuesday, March 11, 2014 Right Now: Nasty Gal x Galore Mag Party
To celebrate Galore Mag’s Music and Friendship issue, we teamed up with founders Prince Chenoa and Jacob Dekat for a balls-out bash at The Lash in Downtown LA. Soko and Tamara Sky dropped some killer beats, and—if you snuck into the VIP section—you might’ve spotted Christina Milian, Deap Vally or Ivy Levan decked out in head-to-toe Nasty Gal (NBD). But, hey, don’t be bummed if you couldn’t make it—we’ve got so many snaps from last Thursday, it’ll feel like you were totally there.

Monday, March 10, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Ivy Levan
Ivy Levan describes her look as “ditzy housewife meets murderous working girl,” and we couldn’t say it better ourselves. The Arkansas-born singer relocated to L.A. 11 years ago and has made a name for herself with punky film noir music videos and a super sultry Disney villain aesthetic. (She even walked in The Blonds’ S/S 2014 New York Fashion Week show last year.) We were lucky enough to chat up Ivy at our Nasty Gal x Galore Mag party to hear more about her morgue-inspired ensembles, where she shops in L.A., and her undying (heh) love for industrial goth.

Friday, March 7, 2014 Trends: Blue Hair, Don’t Care
Here at Nasty Gal, we’re serious about the ultimate anti-prom aesthetic, and we couldn’t think of a better way to say “F you” to conventional school rules than by dyeing our hair the perfect shade of mint blue. We enlisted the help of hair stylist Ashlee Rose Clay to create the ultimate show-stopping (and temporary!) tousled strands perfect for prom, the after party and everything in between.

Friday, March 7, 2014 Right Now: Paris Fashion Week Street Style
Dudes, fashion month is over, but before we officially wrap up the fall/winter 2014 season, we thought we’d chat with our photographer/blogger babe Marie Jensen one last time. This week, she made her final stop in Paris (after Copenhagen, London, and Milan!), and—once she caught some Zs—we asked her to dish on her favorite trends, the best off-duty model ensembles and explain why street style is still so important in the fashion world today.

Friday, March 7, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Galore Mag
If you live in New York City, you’ve heard about Galore. The ’90s-inspired quarterly mag, launched in 2012 by Prince Chenoa and Jacob Dekat, perfectly mixes powerful women and sex appeal for a downtown-girl-meets-vixen-bombshell visual aesthetic that stands out amongst the typical newsstand crowd. But Galore isn’t just a magazine–it’s a media company that hosts events, produces short films and creates daily content for their site. In celebration of our killer Nasty Gal x Galore party last night, we thought it would be the perfect time to hit up these EICs and hear more about our favorite mag of the moment.
