Monday, June 9, 2014 Right Now: Ball So Hard
The World Cup kicks off on June 12th in Brazil! That exclamation point (much like many of my exclamation points, to be honest) is feigned, because in regards to soccer, I know about as much as British people know about nachos (in case you were wondering what that means, last time I ate nachos in London, they came topped with BBQ sauce). But I digress: soccer (or football, as the rest of the free world calls it) is cool for many reasons: during World Cup, you have an excuse to go to a bar at 10am, David Beckham, and of course, soccer-related fashion. We rounded up some of our favorite examples of the latter, drawing from the Nasty Gal vintage archives, a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Carine Roitfeld’s Instagram, and more:

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 Role Model: Gals Of Summer: Diandra Forrest
In a world where conventionality often tends to rule traditional standards of good looks, model Diandra Forrest is the very definition of uniquely beautiful. The gorgeous 24-year old African-American model was born and bred in the Bronx, and as a child with albinism, Diandra was often teased, until one day she was discovered by a model scout who could plainly see that Diandra was not only pretty, but downright gorgeous. Since then she has walked for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood, been featured in countless magazine editorials, and even popped up in music videos for Kanye West (“Power”) and Beyonce (“Pretty Hurts”). Check out some stunning snaps of one our favorite (role) models:
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Role Model: Ariel Beesley
We know what you’re thinking. There’s nothing more annoying than a very beautiful girl who also happens to be totally talented and creative (all in addition to having perfect bone structure). We tend to agree, except in the case of Ariel Beesley, the twenty year old model and musician who not only looks like a dream but happens to creates perfectly dreamy music as well. We can’t help but be charmed by the bleach blonde beauty’s poise, intelligence, and penchant for the darker side of life. The former musical theater nerd recently released Wisp, her third (THIRD) record of sweetly simple yet slightly haunting folk tunes, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on the music video for “Boys Like You” (directed by Aris Jerome) for an exclusive Nasty Gal premiere, as well as pick Ariel’s brain about her inspirations.
