Here’s a good potential Regretsy candidate—pointless beards made of felt by Etsy seller I Made You A Beard. Please tell us people would not a) pay $75 for one, and b) wear it in public. Or am I being terribly unfair here? [Etsy.com] Keep reading »
Disney realized a lot of women want fairy-tale princess weddings like the ones seen in their animated movies, and a couple years ago, they began selling wedding, bridesmaid, and flower-girl dresses based on Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Snow White, and other princesses. Now, they’re taking the dream one step farther with a line of wedding and engagement rings.

Miranda Kerr is the latest model to come under attack for having a super-svelte frame after posing for a swimsuit editorial where some claimed she looked massively underweight. This time, however, Photoshop is not the culprit. “The exaggerated poses for the shoot have made me appear thinner than normal from behind, but I am the same weight and measurements I have maintained for more than three years,” she explained. Hmm …. While insiders claim that the real story is that she shed some extra pounds in a bid to fit into sample-size clothes at the Balenciaga show earlier this month, she not only insists she’s healthy, but she has a message for women everywhere: “I really don’t want girls to think they have to look like me. I want them to nurture themselves and really be the best they can be.” Whatever the case may be, she’s gotta be one hell of a contortionist! [3News] Keep reading »
Maybe starring on such a fashion-drenched TV show has rendered Penn Badgley qualified to dispense fashion advice, because he told Cosmo what he looks for when it comes to women’s style:
“A sweater-dress really can be the sexiest thing. As a man, I just like the simpler things … A plunging V-neck looks like she pulled it off the floor of a man’s bedroom. There’s something so sensual about it.”
Pop in your mouth guard before you read this post, if you’re a tooth grinder. The good news first: According to the Washington Post, more women’s shelters have been opening in Afghanistan since 2001, when the Taliban was officially overthrown. A ministry of women’s affairs is now supposedly overseeing women’s constitutionally guaranteed protection against abuse. But still, about 90 percent of Afghan women are abused. Several women and children, hiding from domestic violence at home, were recently interviewed by CNN at the Women for Afghan Women shelter. One woman escaped with her two children to the shelter, after years of living with her wrists and ankles chained and her hair tied to a wall when she wasn’t doing housework. Another woman showed the stitches in a slash on her neck—stab wounds that she endured, apparently, for not getting pregnant. A child told her own story about being raped at the age of five; she fears that her rapist will kill her when he is released from prison in three years. Keep reading »
Here’s a quick way to get cancer—or at least foot cancer (if that even existed until now)—the Solafeet Foot Tanner, another useless and overpriced object brought to you by the endlessly entertaining SkyMall catalogue. Marketed to golfers who want to “rid themselves of ugly sock tan lines,” all you have to do is stick your feet into the machine for 15 minutes a day (which probably takes off a day of your life with each session). But apparently there are people in the world who suffer from tan line embarrassment:
“If you always feel like people are gawking at your white feet and the unsightly tan lines around your ankles when you wear sandals or pumps, then you need the Solafeet foot tanner … Then you can go from the golf course to the clubhouse in confidence.”
So, basically, you can live it up (for only $229.99) before the doctors amputate both your feet. Awesome. [SkyMall.com] Keep reading »
Most think of Gucci and see interlocking G’s, horsebit hobo bags, or that red and green stripe. But there’s an entire sordid past of the Gucci family, which Tom Ford and Frida Giannini have nothing to do with – and it’s not about design. In 1995, the heir to the Gucci throne, Maurizio Gucci, had his life cut short when he was brutally shot. Behind the murder? Apparently, his wife Patrizia Reggiani set the plot for his early death. While she faced 29 years in prison, the hired assassin earned a life sentence for the murder and Patrizia’s psychic, who contacted the killer, was sent to jail for 25 years.
Sounds like a movie, no? Well, Fox 2000 thinks so, and Angelina Jolie has been approached to play the distressed wife. As for Maurizio? Leonardo DiCaprio is the first choice, but we’ll have to wait to see if that works out. Either way, a Gucci drama will be a welcome addition to the influx of fashion films on movie billboards these days. [Variety] Keep reading »
You might expect a clothing designer to say, “If you want to look good, wear my clothes!” but in an interview with T magazine, punk rock design icon Vivienne Westwood shared a practical tip for how we can all feel fabulous, no matter who designed our outfit:
“My fashion advice is to have a flattering mirror at home and then forget about it.”
