Thursday, January 9, 2014 Nasty Guys: #ThrowbackThursday: Outkast
In case you missed the mega news that dropped last night, Outkast will be headlining this year’s desert festival in Coachella Valley, which means, yep, our favorite hip-hop duo will be reuniting after Seven. Freaking. Years. To celebrate, we look back on André 3000 and Big Boi’s evolution from Atlanta teens to Grammy Award-winning musicians—and every awesome moment in between.
Wednesday, January 8, 2014 Nasty Guys: Happy Birthday, David Bowie!
From Space Oddity to Aladdin Sane and beyond, David Bowie’s bold-yet-badass, totally-out-of-this-world style evolution has truly been one of the greatest gifts of all—other than his killer hits over the years, of course. On his 67th birthday, we pulled together some of his most iconic (see: our favorite) looks from his ever-evolving wardrobe, which totally prove he’s a man who sticks to his word: “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”
Friday, December 20, 2013 Nasty Guys: Shy Girls
There’s nothing not to love about Shy Girls frontman Dan Vidmar. The Portland-based artist pairs smooth electronic beats with ’90s R&B-inspired vocals for endless feel-good jams. (Seriously, listen for yourself.) In October, he released his first EP, Timeshare, and we’re stoked that is just the start of a long music career ahead. We were lucky enough to hang with Dan right here in our L.A. studio and create the most badass photoshoot complete with leopard shirts, silver capes and killer reflective sunglasses. Check out the awesomeness below!
Friday, November 22, 2013 Nasty Guys: Yuno
It’s hard to not like Yuno. The Florida-based artist creates fun, energetic pop music that—no matter what the season—always makes it feel like summer. Ever since the prolific musician crowd-funded his first album V on Kickstarter, music gurus from Pitchfork to The Guardian have been praising him as the next big thing. Yuno soundtracked our latest Shoe Cult video, and here I talk to him about getting his music to the people.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 Nasty Guys: Karl Lagerfeld
We’re on a serious vintage Chanel kick here at NGHQ, which means we must pay homage the man behind it all—Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. For the past 30 years Karl has headed up the Paris fashion house as lead designer and creative director, so we decided it was the perfect time to look back at some of his most iconic (see: super studly) style moments from his early career days until now.
