Wednesday, April 17, 2013 (Almost) Vintage: Fame Fête – Celebs at their Prom
If there is one thing we’ve learned from gossip magazines, it’s that celebrities are all exactly like us. Case in point: They (well, some) went to prom, too. And no matter how cool and/or successful they are now, their photos are just as awkward as everyone else’s. And because we live for sh*t like this—we dug up come of the best from the deepest, darkest corners of the internet.
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 Bringin’ It Back: Who’s The Nasty Gal Prom Queen?
Because love can be awkward and because it’s in the air and mostly because we love you—we’re dipping deep, deep into our personal archives to show you our very own prom photos. We may be touting a too cool Anti-Prom platform these days, but back then we rocked it unironically. So please, try not to be intimidated by our clearly very superior sense of style.
Take a look, then let us know: Who was the Nasty Gal prom queen?

Monday, April 8, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Space Age Desert Eyes
If there’s one thing we love here at Nasty Gal, it’s an excuse to cover our face in glitter. A trip to the grocery store? Sure. An oil change? Totally. A day at in the sun at a summer festival? Well, this one’s a no-brainer.
So, to kick off our season in the sonic fields, we’ve concocted one hell of an eye look. We’re not talking glitter eyeliner or some shadow with sheen, but honest to dog glitter glued to your eyelids. Don’t be shy—we certainly never are!
Our out-of-this-world video directors at Knockout Pictures broke it all down into easy-peasy steps, but our in-house makeup master Stacey Nishimoto’s got more than a little advice on how to really master this look. Below, the exclusive unabridged version, straight from the source!

Thursday, April 4, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Knotty By Nature – A Festival Braid Guide
When we were kids, our copy of Braids and Bows ended up in the garbage—a combination of our hatred of ribbons and our boiling frustration over our utter lack of ability. These days, we’re willing to give these pretty little plaits another try. Not only have braids evolved into a cool, intergalactic art form since our embarrassing class photo days, but they also serve a real and breezy function come festival season.
To get us ready for that extreme desert heat—and stand out in a sea of coif crowns—we turned to our nearest braid babe, Alison Brislin, who cooked up this sorta sleek, sorta spacey look special for us.
