Sometimes a haircut is just a haircut. But sometimes a haircut is the impetus for an entire style rejiggering of sorts, as the new ‘do becomes the centerpiece of a whole new look. I sort of think that’s what’s been happening to Taylor Swift’s fashion sense, ever since she chopped her long blonde locks into a chic bob. Taylor was always a bit of a girlie girl, but this cool crop has first brought her inner goth and now her inner prep school kid out to play. Her bright marigold shoulder bag and brownish jeans (I would call them “adobe-colored” but that seemed a little fashion-person pretentious after already using the word marigold) keep this bookish look from treading into blah territory. Also, is it just me or is Tay rocking a different part in her hair? Did she switch sides? Who does that?! I haven’t switched my part in 15 years, seriously. SO BOLD! Applause, Taylor, applause. Anyway, get this almost-exact look for yourself with the items after the jump! Keep reading »
From Bagelheads to period blood chocolate, Japan really knows how to start a trend. The latest Japanese trend you can really sink your teeth into is the rise of the unlikely sex symbol, the “sausage bread boy.”
Named after the popular Japanese snack, a hot dog baked in pastry dough, these men, who are currently considered a hot commodity on the singles scene, have body types that vaguely resemble the beloved snack: soft and doughy, fluffy in an appealing way (the illustration above shows the ideal sausage bread boy). As if they weren’t already cute enough, SBBs often dress like laid back mountain men. Yes, we’ll take an order of that, please! [Nerve]

I honestly can’t decide if this is outrageous, maddening, just plain sad, or a combination of all three. A mom was so unsatisfied with her post-baby appearance that she spent $25,000 on plastic surgery to look like Jennifer Lawrence – and wait until you hear just how much work it took for her to achieve that result.

OK, so it’s a little difficult to feel tons of sympathy for the genetically blessed amongst us. But everyone has their struggles in life and when you’re a person who is only known for their looks, sometimes people treat you like you don’t have any brains. Case in point: Cindy Crawford learned an awful lesson about judgment on her first day of college calculus. The supermodel received a scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University, but all her professor seemed to see when he looked at her was a pretty face. Watch this clip from “Oprah’s Master Class” as Cindy tells her sobering (and infuriating) story — and think twice before you assume someone is dumb just because she or he is attractive.
