Thursday, October 24, 2013 Role Model: Meet The Cult: Brandee Brown
In case you haven’t noticed, we just can’t get enough of our NYC Shoe Cult disciples. Today, we’re getting to know filmmaker/Ryan McGinley muse Brandee Brown who is the definition of a badass babe. Lucky for us, Brandee created a short film that we’re debuting for the first time right here on the site! (Plus, it comes with a poem too.) Pretty cool, eh? Check it out below.

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Role Model: Meet The Cult: Vashtie
Sure, our NYC Shoe Cult lookbook may be filled with some seriously good-looking gals, but there’s so much more to these ladies than their ability to put a killer outfit together. Meet Vashtie: A jack-of-all-trades who works simultaneously as a director, designer and creative powerhouse. Whether you know it or not, Vashtie’s influence on pop culture is huge—she’s directed videos for Justin Bieber, Solange and Joey Bada$$, just to name a few. Check out some of our favorites below!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 Role Model: Ana Beatriz Barros
If you’re nearly as googly-eyed over our Nasty Gal Collection Lookbook model, Ana Beatriz Barros, as we are, we have quite the treat for you. She’s equal parts girl next door, Brooke Shields in “The Blue Lagoon”, and the girl you’re automatically intimidated of because she’s just that pretty. What’s not to love? Take a peek at just a fraction of the editorials the Brazilian beauty has been featured in over the years!
Wednesday, August 14, 2013 Role Model: Daze-Inducing Lorde
You might not be familiar with Lorde’s name, but you’d almost certainly recognize her voice from “Royals” the hypnotic, anti-bubblegum pop anthem that has been spinning on radio stations and reverberating out of car speakers for months. The first time we heard it, we recognized it instantly as a Nasty Gal anthem. The girl behind it is singer-songwriter Ella Yelich-O’Conner; an Auckland, New Zealand native who’s only 16. Ahead of her sold-out show at The Echoplex last Thursday night, Nasty Gal spoke to the lion-maned, platform-booted Lorde about Los Angeles, lyricism, and the loneliness of teenage life.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Role Model: Bloodsucker Jodie Smith
Jodie Smith was the star of our Loud and Clear lookbook, and now we’re seeing her loud and clear on our TV screens on True Blood, where she’s one part model and one part kickass vamp star. We caught up with Jodie to get the deets on beauty secrets, dating vampires in real life, and how nudity can help clear social stigmas.
