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.

Friday, November 8, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: B O S C O
If you were totally entranced by the catchy beats from our Shoe Cult teaser, you’re probably dying to know who the face is behind that killer single. Well, we certainly were, so we decided to track her down! B O S C O (a.k.a. Brittany Bosco) is an Atlanta-based musician who layers smooth vocals over dreamy electronic beats, and she has super cute style to boot. B O S C O and two of her friends were nice enough to take us on a tour of their Southern town (decked out in head-to-toe Nasty Gal, of course) and total awesomeness ensued.

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, 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.
