One of my friends posted a link to this perplexing Comme Des Garcons garment on her Facebook wall the other day, asking if anyone could explain it to her. I’ve been looking at it for, like, six hours total now, and I still have no idea why it exists. I mean, it kind of looks like a strap used for archery, but there’s nowhere to put the arrows, and I don’t know many archers who would splash out so much extra money for red sequins. It’s officially titled “Sequin Top” but it doesn’t cover any of the areas a top traditionally covers. Also it costs over $400, even on sale. Whyyyyy? [$423, Farfetch]

"I needed more opportunities to perform."

Cuban dancer and choreographer Juan Miguel Mas used to belong to a traditional dance troupe, but he rarely made it on stage because of his weight. “I created a character for myself to play, Giant Baby, and that was the first and only time I was allowed on stage,” he says. “I needed more opportunities to perform.” In 1996, he’d decided he’d had enough, and created Danza Voluminosa, a dance troupe especially for people who didn’t fit the mold of traditional dancers. Mas’ goal wasn’t just to use larger people to recreate the same old dance moves; he wanted to “create an aesthetic starting from their bodies that were more soft, more wide.” Keep reading »

Last week, I raved about this amaaazing hot pink/olive green combo that Katie Holmes wore to the studio to film an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Commenter nomnombacon fell in love with Katie’s gorgeous military-inspired jacket, and can you blame her? It’s such a gorgeous piece. Julie and I did some digging and discovered that the exact coat Katie’s wearing is Balenciaga, which means it costs roughly as much as a vacation home in the Bahamas, but don’t worry–we found three alternative options that aren’t exactly cheap, but much more accessible than the original. Check ‘em out after the jump, and if you have a Style 911 question, email me at winona@thefrisky.com! Keep reading »

Want To Protect Your Liver This New Year’s Eve? Eat Some Asparagus

How To: Hide A Hangover

Best NYE Ever
...hopefully it'll be the one to come. Read More »

If you’re planning to party like a rock star this New Year’s Eve, you might want to take a break from pounding Jagerbombs to pounding a plate of sauteed asparagus. According to a study in the Journal of Food Science, certain amino acids and minerals found in asparagus have the power to flush out “cellular toxicities.” As the lead researcher explains, ”These results provide evidence of how the biological functions of asparagus can help alleviate alcohol hangover and protect liver cells.” This study doesn’t guarantee that asparagus will cure your hangover, but hey, weird-smelling pee is a small price to pay for the possibility of a headache-free morning on the first day of 2013. Now that we’re on the topic of hangovers, do you have any of your own hangover remedies you’d like to share? Have you ever tried the asparagus cure? Did it work? [Pop Sci]

Happy Holidays! It’s that time of year when celebrities and various members of the 1 percent flock to Aspen to ski and strut around in ridiculous designer snow outfits. Obviously, Paris Hilton and her boyfriend River Viiperi were not going to miss out on the fun. River, who looks even younger than his actual age of 21, opted for a light jacket and sneakers, while Paris went for frothy white fur and moon boots, because of course she did. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Gorgeous Gloves And Mittens For $20 Or Less

At the risk of sounding like my dad, who is genuinely appalled that there are pants in this world that cost more than $15, have you seen the prices of gloves and mittens lately? I was poking through some accessory racks over the weekend and only found a couple options for less than 50 bucks. So, in the interest of warm fingers and non-empty bank accounts, I went searching for some stylish options for $20 or less. From stripes to plaid to studded leather, click on the gallery to see what I found!

Cornell University Lays Down The Lawn In The Library

Cornell University might have just earned itself a prominent place in my higher education fantasies, thanks to some lush new lawns they installed … in the library. Two different libraries, to be exact, plus three other locations around campus, were equipped with real patches of grass to help students get a taste of nature and relieve stress while they studied for finals. The project was dreamed up by recent graduate Gilad Meron, who based the idea on Attention Restoration Theory, “which says that direct exposure to nature, viewing nature through windows, and even viewing images of nature are restorative.” Bringing nature inside seemed like an obvious next step, and as an added bonus, it allows students to sit in the grass and read without getting beaned in the head by a dudebrah’s frisbee. Bliss! [Neatorama]
