When Anna Says Red, You Go Red

We’ve all heard the stories of Anna Wintour casually suggesting something of a beauty change to a model or designer and theverynexthour said model or designer has put that piece of “advice” into effect. Well, word is that model Maggie Rizer (she was huge in the late ’90s/early ’00s and featured in campaigns for Calvin Klein, GAP, every country-version of Vogue, etc. … then her dad up and stole her millions to play the lotto—and lost), has heard from fashion’s end-all, be-all.

Charlie’s Devils: A Website Auctions Off Farrah Fawcett’s Hair

Perhaps you were outbid when trimmings of Elvis’ hair went on sale last year—$15,000 is a lot of money to pay for a clump of hair. But do not fear. You can still own a trimming from one of the most famous heads of all time. A website called HunkWithJunk.com is selling what they claim is a lock of Farrah Fawcett‘s iconic feathered hair—bidding is starting at the bargain price of $1,000. “For real this one time Novelty item from 70′s,” the site reads. “Sadly takes on new meaning after the Passing of our beloved Angel! Here and available for a limited time only! Someday the technology will be available, and you might be able to create your very own angel.” Egads. All we can say is, don’t trust an auction site that (a) suffers from random capitalization and (b) has the word “hunk” in its handle. We highly doubt that this is actual Farrah hair. Not to mention that the whole thing is just incredibly tacky, considering that Farrah passed away this summer after a long, grueling battle with cancer. “Wow, I am stunned,” said Farrah’s hair stylist, Mela Murphy, after being told about the auction. “I hope this person is not trying to be funny.” So agreed.
