Just because you’ve committed to staycation doesn’t mean you can’t get busy (watching Netflix).
We hope you’re not doing anything this weekend because the first four episodes of Be Here Nowish just dropped, and you’re definitely gonna wanna watch this series. In case you missed it, the show’s co-creators Alexandra Roxo and Natalia Leite launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their female-driven comedy about “two sexually progressive New York gals who ditch their down-and-out lives for LA in search of a spiritual awakening,” which means, yes, we’ve been waiting nearly a year for this. So, we caught up with Alexandra and Natalia to talk to them firsthand about their highly-anticipated series debut, working with Karley Sciortino (a.k.a Slutever), and what’s lacking in the current TV landscape.

It’s pretty obvious we have a thing for bad girls here at Nasty Gal, but since it’s still Halloween, we thought we’d take it one step further—with teenagers that truly terrify us. Between Regina George’s backstabbing, Kathryn Merteuil’s mind games and Jennifer Check’s thirst for blood, we rounded up the top ten ladies in film who have seriously scared the crap out of us.
If you’re like us, you’ve watched the Shoe Cult teaser at least 100 times by now. The genius behind those 15 seconds of awesomeness is director Alexa Karolinski—an L.A.-based filmmaker who has mastered everything from high fashion films to full-length documentaries. We cannot get enough of her killer aesthetic, so we decided to hit her up and find out what really makes her tick.
In honor of the film’s 18th birthday, we decided to revisit just a few of the super-important life lessons that we learned from watching Clueless.
You can’t leave the house without someone recommending Spring Breakers, the new weirdo star-studded grindhouse movie by director Harmony Korine. So, we sent our lovely web designer Martine to check it out and report back on what all this fuss is about!

Sean Penn has always been a babe. From ’80s cult film Fast Times At Ridgemont High to revolutionary Milk and tons of other movies, he not only proves to be an amazingly talented actor, but also a great producer, writer and director. Seriously, we’re not sure there’s anything he can’t do. And we can’t help but love that he’s still a borderline bad boy with an incredible track record of broken hearts, including Madonna, Scarlett Johansson and his ex-wife Robin Wright. Sean, we’ll always have a crush on you…
