Happy Birthday, Andy!

Pop art aficionados take some time out of your day to remember the greatest in the game. It’s Andy Warhol’s big 8-6 today and we think everyone needs to recognize it. Best known for reappropriating celebrity, culture and advertisement as art, Warhol is an icon to art lovers the world over. He was the founder of Interview and undoubtedly the reason we have the pop art effect on Photobooth. If you’re in LA, make your way over to MOCA in September to check out Andy Warhol: Shadows, an exhibition that presents one Warhol painting in 102 parts!

#GIRLBOSS: CIARRA PARDO

For the final installment of the Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS series, we’re profilin’ Ciarra Pardo – best known for her work as Rihanna’s Creative Director (nbd). In her video, Ciarra talks about growing up as an overachiever in the Bronx, working a full-time job at the age of 15, and mastering the balance of work and play. Also: a life lesson she learnt from her horse. Awesome.

Did you see the last three #GIRLBOSS portraits? Go watch ‘em all now!

Because we love Rihanna (and you’re obsessed too) we’ve posted our fave Bad Gal music videos.

Getting Serious With MØ

MØ’s name takes a few minutes to pronounce correctly, but that doesn’t mean she deserves any less attention. In fact, in an age when performers and their outrageous personas are becoming kind of meaningless, MØ’s name—and everything else about her— is refreshingly profound.

Working It: An Interview with Gloria Noto

We recently had Gloria Noto teach us how to do the dew. Today, we’re asking about her other projects, namely The Work Magazine. Since its conception six years ago, The Work has grown into a combination fashion, photography and art publication. When it comes down to it, the mag is all about “real soul, real concept and not just another hot girl looking bored.” Of course, most of that soul comes from Gloria, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. We caught up with her to talk crystals, something called “active rest,” and the reason why one job is never enough.

Daze-Inducing Lorde

emh6_LORDEJAMESKLOWE_1

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.

Meet Page!

Page Ruth is our new obsession. The San Francisco born babe takes some of the dreamiest shots we’ve ever seen, with enough holographic and neon vibes to make any ’70s disco enthusiast go wild. We recently shot some beauty looks on Page, and she’ll soon be appearing in our latest vintage!

Mr. Little Jeans

First known for her dub-stepped interpretation of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs,” Mr. Little Jeans has since won over fans with her dreamy, dancey music, and her cover of “Single Ladies” didn’t hurt, either. Her new single, “Oh Sailor” (and its accompanying music video) has us lost in a world of kaleidoscopic, cosmic genius. We got a chance to catch up with the Norway native, who has since relocated to L.A., after she DJ’d our No Bummer Summer party while simultaneously keeping the dance floor packed and trying to stay out of the sun.

Snap-Happy with Fashion Photog Rob Oades

If there’s one thing we love around here—oh, besides candy and shoes and stickers—it’s models. Specifically off-duty ones. So, when we stumbled across fashion photographer Rob Oades’ side project of candid model Polaroids, our hearts went boom.  The photos, lovingly or jokingly scribbled-upon by each of the girls, are cute, fun and ultimately super revelatory of each of their personalities. We caught up with Oades to talk personal connections, destroying an image, and what the f@$% to do with all these photos!

Jessica Clarke

Meet Jessica Clarke, the slurpee-sipping arcade babe behind our latest (and most delicious) Lazy Oaf x Nasty Gal lookbook. We magically got her to take a breather from bouncing around the bowling alley in juicy fruit bottoms to give us the scoop on her childhood dreams, the worst outfit she’s ever worn and collection pieces she can’t live without.
