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.
Thursday, November 7, 2013 Nasty Guys: The Cobrasnake’s Totally Ironic Guide To Getting Shot In Party Photos
If you’ve ever been to a killer party in L.A. or NYC, chances are you’re already well-versed on Mark Hunter a.k.a. The Cobrasnake. The photographer—best known for his high-flash party shots—has documented only the most badass (and most famous!) party-goers in his decade-long career. Since we’re in total party mode, we thought we’d hit up the expert on how to get snapped in one of his pics. The result? Hilarious guidelines that you shouldn’t take (too) seriously. Check ‘em out below!
Thursday, October 24, 2013 Nasty Guys: Drake: Started From The Bottom
We’re really, really into Drake here at Nasty Gal HQ, and today also happens to be his 27th birthday. This (obviously) means we needed to pay homage to our main man on his big day, so we gathered some oh-so-adorbs photos to show that Drizzy did, in fact, “start from the bottom.” From a bright-eyed baby (decked out in the best ’90s duds!) to a too-cool-for-school 8th grader at Degrassi to a suited-up GQ gentlemen, you’ll see why we’ve loved our Champagne Papi every step of the way.
Thursday, October 17, 2013 Nasty Guys: Jagwar Ma
Dudes in bands + Australian accents + dope outfits = every reason why we love Jagwar Ma. The Sydney-based trio released their debut album Howlin’ this summer, and we’ve been obsessed with Jono Ma, Gabriel Winterfield, and Jack Freeman ever since. Nasty Gal Photo Editor Cat Roif was lucky enough to chat up guitarist/beatmaster Jono about his favorite T-shirts, going on tour, and all-things Australia, so check it out below! (Bonus: Really, really pretty pictures.)
