These Vozianov shoes highlight every nook and cranny of your feet, which is why I think they’re a total waste of time. If I want somebody to see what my pinky toe looks like, I’ll just go barefoot, thank you very much.

God bless Vivienne Westwood: Her Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show put a chill on the faces of the poor male models sent down the runway. The boys were forced to wear fake — and in some cases, real — icicle beards. The look was apparently an homage to British naturalist David Attenborough and his documentary “Frozen Planet.” Either way, those are some deliciously frosty snowmen. [Telegraph UK]

My Jean-Paul Gaultier gold bar isn’t like the rest of my gold bars. It’s emblazoned with designer Jean-Paul Gaultier’s name and logo, for chrissakes. That means it cost a premium — like 10 percent more than the common gold bar, just because it has Gaultier’s name on it. So of course I can’t put it with the other gold bars. But also! I can’t just leave it out on the coffee table. Someone might mistake it for a very, very heavy coaster and accidentally put their glass of 1978 Montrachet on it. Embarrassing gaffe! The mantle? Then I’m afraid nobody will notice it and realize that I spent $1,826.33 on it (plus a $25 handling fee, duh). Won’t somebody come up with a Jean-Paul Gaultier Gold Bar Display Case? Come on, help me out here. [Telegraph UK]

If you’ve online dated, you’ve probably gotten one or two or 17 really terrible messages from strange, socially maladjusted weirdos.

One of the tech world’s youngest and most impressive female leaders passed away this week, following complications from an epileptic seizure. Arfa Karim was just 16 years old, but had already served as a Microsoft certified professional for seven years, which means she was programming and developing computers. The Pakistani teen was the youngest person ever to be certified, receiving her certification in 2005 at the age of nine. The child prodigy piqued the interest of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who invited Karim and her family to visit the company’s Redmond, Washington, campus. In fact, Gates paid for Karim’s hospital stay, and had wanted to move her to the United States for further treatment, but doctors felt that her condition was too delicate for her to be moved.
