Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
It seems that the Playboy Club is enjoying something of a renaissance. First, there’s the sure-to-be-a-hit NBC show, “The Playboy Club,” debuting this fall, which takes place in the swinging ’60s. And now, the design team Marchesa has revamped the bunny costume for the club’s London location in the form of a delicious feather and sequins concoction. Designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman (seen here flanking the costume) only made one — which they say is a celebration of the female form, not a totem of objectification.
“What is wrong with celebrating women? I think it celebrates the female form. The women in here are pretty empowered. Take Debbie Harry, a former Playboy Bunny, she’s an incredible woman and an icon, and she’s had a fabulous career … It would be more repressive to tell women they can’t dress a certain way and the can’t do certain things,” said the pair of their creation. The one-off costume will be auctioned off in October to raise money for breast cancer awareness. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
Snooki rear-ended a cop car in Florence, Italy, this weekend, sending two police officers to the hospital with whiplash. Snooki, her pal Deena, and a “Jersey Shore” film crew member were being escorted by the cop car, which pinned Snooki’s car against a highway wall after the crash. This surely won’t do any good to improve Jersey-Italy relations, which have been wilting like a bouffant with too much hair gel ever since the “Jersey Shore” cast announced they’d be filming a season in their homeland. Miraculously, though, no limoncello shots (or any other alcohol) were involved in this fender bender! Despite all those trips up and down the NJ Turnpike, Snooki’s just a plain ol’ bad driver.

Common knowledge says that men can’t breastfeed. But … can they? In a kind of awesome article over at Slate.com, writer Michael Thomsen decided to see if he—a 33-year-old male—could lactate after reading that Charles Darwin said it was possible for men to produce milk and looking up a Bible verse (Numbers 11:12, which reads, “Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing father bears the sucking child”) implying that men breastfeeding was once common.

“‘[Dancing with the Stars'] was a perfect new start to my new life. It really proved that I could be sexy with some clothes on. Not a lot of clothes, but it proved to myself that I can do something like this. I feel like the same person I’ve always been since birth, but I have a new head on my shoulders. I’m a mom now. Life is different. But I’m still young. We’re still fresh. I’m just having fun, but I would never go back in time and do Playboy again. That’s something I’ll leave in my past.”
—Kendra Wilkinson takes a brief pause from reminding us how her size zero, pre-baby body is back, and says something really interesting—that after doing “Dancing with the Stars,” she’s not sure she would become a Playboy bunny if given the chance to do it over again. Hey, if the show led to some personal growth and taught her that sexy doesn’t equal naked, I am all in favor. [People] Keep reading »
Everybody wants to be different. As the King Missile song goes, “I want to be different, just like everybody else wants to be.” And apparently some very noncomformist guys are going to great lengths to make their girlfriends feel like the most different bride-to-be on the block. Check out this $9,000 Lucifer Vir Honestus engagement ring — all twisted rose gold, and statement jewels. It’s apparently the latest thing in engagement ring trends. But really, we want to know: would you want your engagement ring to be so … out of the box? [Barneys New York] Keep reading »
