Would You Bother To Rent Designer Clothes?

Fashion is a mean and fickle industry: You spend one million space bucks on some really fancy designer item, only to be told that it’s “so last season.” That’s where businesses like Rent the Runway come in: They allow you to rent in-season designer garments for the night, or the week or the month so that you can have the look and pay the rent.

Watch A Tiger Give Birth To A Perfect Little Cub


As you probably know, I feel a certain affinity for tigers (and sweaters with tigers on them, ahem). So when I saw this video of Shadow giving birth to her cub, I had to watch. It’s slightly bloody, sure, but hello? Tiger cubs! Plus, watching the video reminds me that tigers are becoming an endangered species thanks to hunting and human development of their habitat, so each cute little cub counts.

It seems Swanepoel’s shoulders wouldn’t look so weird if a proper shadow had been added, but without, her arm just looks out of whack. [Photoshop Disasters] Keep reading »
