Polaris Prize’s Best Dressed Nominees

BestDressedPolaris

On Monday, the Polaris Music Prize will be awarded to one talented Canadian act for an outstanding album, regardless of genre or commercial success. The 10 artists shortlisted this year are Andy Shauf, Basia Bulat, Black Mountain, Carly Rae Jepsen, Grimes, Jessy Lanza, Kaytranada, PUP, U.S. Girls and White Lung.

But before the honor of the Polaris Prize is bestowed upon one of these talented musicians, we’re commending a few of the nominees for something separate from their musical ability—their enviable fashion sense. Check out the best dressed nominees from this year’s Polaris Prize shortlist.

Get To Know The Girls In The POP By Stella McCartney Film

PoPheader

The only thing sweeter than Stella McCartney’s newest scent has to be the pastel production that comes along with it. This part-commercial-part-fashion film stars four of our fave indie “It Girls” and is packed with amazing visuals. We’ve got the run down on each of these four power-gals and this masterpiece of a video!

JSYK: Eyebrow Wins

FYI: Summer's Best Music Videos

Every summer we’re bombarded with a slew of catchy tunes to listen to with the windows rolled down and zero cares in the world. At some point during the season one lucky song will be deemed the *song of the summer*. Unfortunately, as I am not particularly hip or much of a radio listener, I’m uneducated as to what popular summer song is making waves this year. However, I have come across plenty of entertaining music videos (not to mention the cameos!) to keep me busy on YouTube all day! read more…

Beauty Inspiration: Grimes

Excuse me while I fangirl out of orbit for a minute…but guys, we need to talk about Grimes (and how awesome she is).

Miss Claire Boucher is an extraordinarily talented artist and has been on repeat on my iTunes for the past 1,095 days. I recently saw her perform live and those near me may have heard me say, “I wish I could Freaky Friday with her!”, and folks – I meant it. To wake up with the voice of Mariah Carey from space? To sport glitter like you were born that way? And to look incredible with absolutely any colour of hair? That is the life, my friends.  read more…

MIXTAPE: About A Girl

This month in music: Lily Allen calls her upcoming album Sheezus, Pharrell Williams drops his highly anticipated record G I R L, and Beyoncé continues to top all charts (music and otherwise).

Alternately speaking, the sisterhood has got its hold on the music scene.

This week, lady power goes worldwide for International Women’s Day: so let’s take a moment to commemorate the gurls who we’ve come to know through the songs about them. You know them by name – greats like Sweet Caroline, Eleanor Rigby, Mrs. Robinson, and Sheena the punk rocker. Without these classic babes we may not have our modern heroines of song. Could Simon & Garfunkle’s “For Emily Wherever, I May Find Her” be the predecessor of Bon Iver’s “For Emma”?

Either way, we present to you the ultimate soundtrack to women crush Wednesdays. In the name of all-girl bands, frontwomen, and lady babes everywhere, press play! read more…

Breakout Style Stars of 2013

This is a list of women who do awesome really, really well. For the better half of 2013, we creeped pictures of them day in and day out, admired them from afar, and made shopping lists according to their outfits. Whether in magazines, on TV, or just seen on the street, these ladies exhibited exceptional personal style choices and offered heavy bouts of internet inspiration. They likely each have Tumblr photo blogs dedicated entirely to their sartorial activity and that’s a very good thing. read more…
