Quiz: Stripper Heel Or Designer Shoe?

quiz 032311 m jpg
Shoes are pretty out of control these days, and we’re not complaining. The higher the heel, the closer to God (or is that hair?). In any case, it seems that more and more designers are taking a cue from the strip clubs of the world, making shoes with impossibly high platforms and gaudy detailing. It’s getting hard to tell whose been working the poll and whose been working the runway. We figured we couldn’t be the only ones noticing this sky-high platform trend, so we thought we’d give you, dear readers, a challenge: Which of the following shoes are stripper heels, and which are high-end designer shoes, worth thousands of dollars? Take our quiz and find out!

Willow Smith’s Wicked New Neon Hair

True story: I went to grad school in Brighton, England, the place where raves never died. Everywhere you go in Brighton, there are middle-aged people wearing neon yarn hair, a holdover from their days in the rave caves of the ’90s. Often, these rave casualties would tote around their children, and many times I felt pangs of second-hand embarrassment for the tweens whose moms and dads sported fake neon dreadlocks down to their knees. It gave me the douchechills. Willow Smith’s new neon braids remind me of those Brighton folks, but unlike them, her new hairdo is age- and life-appropriate. Whip it, girl. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Crush Of The Day: Lady Gaga’s Tattooed Friend, Rick Genest

See that guy pictured with Lady Gaga in a still from her “Born This Way” video? That’s Rick Genest. And unlike Miss Gaga, whose face required two hours of make up to achieve the skeletal look, Mr. Genest’s face really looks like that. Because his face is tattooed that way. As in, permanently. That’s right, Mr. Skeletor over there has a perma-Halloween costume on, and he’s spent three years and $7,000 to make it happen. And I’m apparently not the only one who thinks he’s mega-hot. The Canadian model has been tapped by Thierry Mugler designer — and frequent Gaga collaborator — Nicola Formichetti, as his muse. Formichetti found Genest living on the streets in Montreal, where he was doing odd jobs to pay for his next tattoo, and now he’s walking in Mugler’s menswear shows. And for the record, just because he looks scary, doesn’t mean he isn’t a sweetheart. His mom says, “Within the family he is a very loving boy, he’s very respectful to us.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Pour Some Sugar On Me

The other day, I dug up a small travel-size bottle of Fresh’s Sugar Lemon body lotion that had been languishing in my bathroom cabinet. I used a tiny amount on my dry, chapped hands and as soon as I smelled it, I immediately wanted to be swathed in an entire bucket of the stuff. The Sugar Lemon scent is sweet, but not cloying, and feels overwhelmingly light and, well, fresh. I’ll take two dozen bottles, please.

How Do I Wear: Floral Tights?

Floral tights are everywhere right now — and it make sense. After all, everyone’s itching to start rocking their spring clothes, but it’s still a bit too cold to be traipsing around with bare legs. However, there are some rules for wearing floral tights the right way. For one, don’t try to pair another pattern with these tights. One colorful, flower-powered piece is enough. Keep everything else pretty neutral and your outfit will stay pleasantly in bloom. After the jump, we give you a style suggestion for these tights. Keep reading »
