See that ring between Christina Aguilera‘s hand? It certainly goes with her Bionic-influenced metal collar, but that ring also has a kinkier purpose. The sickle-shaped ring is actually Betony Vernon’s Petting Ring. It not only holds the index finger and thumb in the perfect chi mudra position, the hand “gesture used in meditation for a one-pointed mind,” but it also gives an extremely pleasant hand job (I hear).

“I kind of see myself less as the girl riding a broomstick and holding a wand and more as a girl emerging from an explosion, with a gun.”
Victoria’s Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whitely on her response to rumors about her being featured in an American version of “Harry Potter.” We’re not surprised that she’d choose Bond over Potter, but we are skeptical of her reasoning. You sure it doesn’t have more to do with the wardrobe than the action, Rosie? Still, she may create a whole new acronym to replace MTA called MTAS: Model-Turned-Action-Star. Oh wait, Milla Jovovich and Rebecca Romijn did that already. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »
