Friday, November 8, 2013 Role Model: Syd Tha Kyd
At 21, DJ and producer Sydney “Syd Tha Kid” Bennett is already a staple in the Los Angeles music scene, and we love Syd. (Proof: She deejayed our #NGFW party last year, and we interviewed her in our first ever issue of Super Nasty.) She stole our hearts as the DJ (and lone female) in the notorious rap group Odd Future, and since then, Syd has teamed up with Matt Martians to form The Internet, a soulful, jazzy hip-hop band. I spoke with Syd at her recording studio, Chateau Marie, where we talked about making money, her signature style, and how far she’s come from recording dudes in her parent’s garage.

Thursday, November 7, 2013 Role Model: Joni Mitchell
It’s hard to believe one our biggest ’60s style icons, Joni Mitchell, turns 70 today! We’ve always been obsessed with her effortlessly-cool ensembles (think: no-nonsense shift dresses paired with T-strap flats), so we paid homage to the fashion-forward folk singer with some of our favorite throwback looks.

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.

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!
