Wear Your Disney Pride On Your Eyes

I know, you’re thinking — How do I show my insane devotion to Disney’s “The Lion King” in a new and innovative way? Well, makeup artist Katie Alves reached deep and came up with animated film-themed eye makeup. Like these “Lion King” coated peepers. How crazy detailed is that? And how many hours did that poor model have to sit there with her eyes closed while Alves painstakingly painted a full panel? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Rats Emerge As Fashion’s Darlings

I live in New York City, so I find it nearly impossible to imagine rats as anything more than disgusting subway-dwelling creatures of the underworld. But the lovely people of the Fancy Rat Convention seem to disagree. They say rats are smart! And they make great pets! And they’re so cute when they’re all dressed up.

The Military’s Dirty Little Human Trafficking Secret

We tend to think of human trafficking as something that happens over there, a crime committed by someone else. But, as discussed in a piece in the current issue of The New Yorker, it turns out that human trafficking is part of the bedrock that keeps the U.S. military afloat in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. And poor women from around the world are its victims. Keep reading »

FHM, We’re Calling You Out On Your Transphobia

Earlier this year, British lad mag FHM named transgender model Andrej Pejic as one of its 100 Sexiest Women in the World. And then! When the mag found out that “she” was actually biologically a “he,” they quickly rescinded the honor — with nasty words to boot. In a statement that was later taken off the magazine’s site (but screen-captured by blogger Alicia Swann), FHM refers to Pejic as a “thing” and says that they’d like to “pass the sick bucket” for their mistake.

A Book To Be Thankful For

Thank you notes are kind of a lost art, and that’s why writer Leah Dieterich has made it her mission to bring ‘em back. In her new book, Thx Thx Thx: Thank Goodness for Everything, she lovingly pays homage to all the things she’s thankful for, from the big to small. In the book, Dieterich writes a thank you note a day, to everything from her ponytail (for keeping her hair out of her face) to her ring finger (for being just as powerful without jewelry on it as with it). We could all use a little more gratitude in our lives, wouldn’t you say?

Things That Make Us Want To Vom: Cheese Dresses

Fashion students at the Bath Spa University apparently didn’t think that the commonly used fabrics like cotton, silk and linen were cutting it. So they went with a less likely fabric choice: cheese. The students — who also originated repulsive cheese shoes — heat molded and sculpted Pilgrims’ Choice Vintage, Extra Mature and Red Leicester cheeses into wearable dress forms, after being inspired by Lady Gaga’s odd choice of garments. But oh! Can you imagine the melting in the heat? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
