Doing It White

238215

We just talked about the ever-changing little black dress. So, in an effort to be fair, we’re going to recognize the other side of the spectrum. Tons of people already ascribe to #ALLWHITEEVERYTHING, but it’s not just about head-to-toe monochromatism. People like Ivania Carpio surround their lives in white, adorning themselves in minimal accessories and designing their living spaces to look like that scene in Charlie’s Angels where Natalie sneaks into Redstar’s computer in an all-white unitard. No one ever gets that reference, so here, watch. We rounded up some inspo images in case you’re thinking that white might be the non-color you’ve been looking for!

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “On The Run” Tour

Beyonce,JAY Z

As you may know if you don’t live in a dark cave in a remote corner of an otherwise uninhabited stretch of land, Beyonce and Jay-Z are on tour. Together. Because that’s not the cutest thing ever. Music’s most beloved married couple struck out on the “On The Run” co-headline tour on June 25th in Miami, and have been wowing audiences in major markets around the country ever since. 

If you don’t have a chance to make it out to the tour in person, don’t fret. Just blast your favorite Beyonce and Jay tunes at full volume and take a look at some of Queen Bey’s best looks from the tour, including custom designed outfits from Versace, Alexander Wang, and Nicola Formichetti.

Little Bad Dresses

The Little Black Dress has always been pretty famous, but now it’s all about challenging the classic interpretation. Revealing cutouts and bodycon fits are the name of the game, and with temperatures turning up, it’s kind of the perfect time to redefine the LBD.

Nemesis Babe Takes Sidewalk Snaps at Paris Couture

Fashion weeks come and go, but the Couture shows are unforgettable. Almost as important as the hand-made gowns that drift down the runway are the people who watch and critique them, editors and bloggers and buyers who are usually outfitted in the pumps, tees, and bags du jour.  Because we have to work (but still dream in couture), we got photo genius Marie Jensen to document her favorite looks from the street!

We could plaster flags all over our bodies, but for this 4th, we prefer a subtler approach. Whether you’re a poolside patriot or watching fireworks from dry land, we suggest pairing simple reds, whites and blues with Budweiser and BBQ. Pulling out that perfect, classic American brand tee isn’t a bad idea either. Because we never want to celebrate our independence from the Internet, we scoured our favorite sites for the best in American attire.

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:

We know all you bad bitches are not ones to undervalue the power of proper accessorizing, so we rounded up the best vintage beach jewelry inspiration so you can hit up the nearest ocean/pool/lake/slip-n-slide this summer without having to face the fear of shedding your jewels.

Australian Fashion Week: Part 1

australia-fashion-week-4

We’re heerreeee! Nasty Gal just landed in Australia, and we’re at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to check out the shows (duh), peep some street style, and hang at some killer parties. So far, we’ve run into our besties How Two Live in head-to-toe holographic ensembles, got inspired at Karla Spetic and Unif M.’s all-white-everything shows, and partied with Romance Was Born under a ceiling of hot pink balloons. Basically, we’re having an awesome time, and this is just the beginning–check back all week long for more Aussie Fashion Week updates!

Nazanin Mandi

Sure, Nazanin Mandi is a quadruple threat with her 17 years of singing, dancing, acting and modeling experience, but really, she’s just a dang fun person to hang out with. The L.A.-based babe (and girlfriend of Miguel!) took a break from recording her debut indie pop EP to talk about her upcoming music festival plans (which includes a photo diary she’s doing just for us, NBD), essential festival tips, and the key to a perfect selfie.

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.
