The Girl Below Is Actually An Android Sex Doll

Robots these days can perform surgeries, walk the runway, and even teach a class of students. And now there’s a robot that can … have sex. A German company called First Androids has created the world’s most advanced sex doll. Her name is Andy (guess men are really into women with guy’s names, à la Joey Potter?) and she costs $3820. Her face and body are crazy realistic and she appears to have hair and eyebrows (and, uh, pubes) that look pretty convincing. She also has a “heavy breathing” function and an actual G-spot. So far, First Androids has received four million orders for the sex ‘bots, which kind of shocked me at first. But then I remembered that there are guys out there (cough, Eliot Spitzer) who spend $3820 a month on hookers and it all made sense. Guess the age of robot prostitutes isn’t so far off?

Crave: Tsubo Hepti Heels (Win A Pair!)

We find the word “shootie” (a combination shoe-bootie) deplorable. Can we stop with the made-up names, already? But the footwear itself is pretty cute. Like Tsubo’s Hepti heels, which have an understated design and come in this unexpected color pairing. Seriously, how often do you see a shoe in olive gray that’s lined in pale neon green? The supple suede is highlighted by curved ribbing along the back and heel, but no element of the shoe outshines the others. The Hepti is a complete package that gets attention without having to scream, “Look at me!” We’ll wear them with long, fluid pants in a coordinating tweed or with tights in a similar olive green and a dress or skirt. [$145, Tsubo]

We’re giving five readers a pair of Tsubo’s Hepti Heels (which haven’t even hit their website yet!), but you have to work if you want your feet to look good. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, Sept. 18 through Thursday, Sept. 24—will be awarded with a set. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Quick Pic: Let’s “Pop In” Jerry Seinfeld’s Apartment, Shall We?

The sort-of-not-really “Seinfeld” reunion (AKA the “Seinfeld” peeps got together to resurrect their old sets and yuk it up for “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) called for a few 2009 upgrades to Jerry’s apartment—granite countertops, flat screen TV, side-by-side door refridge. Kinda weird seeing it that way, right? [Joy Hog!] Keep reading »

The Hairspray That Makes Professionals All Giddy

We already told you about the official cocktail of Fashion Week, but here’s a little insider info on the unofficial behind-the-scenes hair product: L’Oreal‘s Elnett hairspray. Up until last year, the cult product was only available in Europe — hairdressers the world over would literally stock up on cases of the stuff and send it back home, which we’re pretty sure is a customs nightmare, but anyway. Why are they so dang obsessed with it? Even though it boasts runway-strong hold (think of some of the crazy ‘dos we’ve seen come down the catwalk), it leaves hair feeling soft and looking glossy, and you can totally brush it out and start all over again if you mess up somehow. You may have noticed that backstage most of the hairdressers are sponsored; so they kind of have to stick to using the products they’re given. But we totally spotted some cheater cheater pumpkin eaters busting the Elnett on the DL. Best of all, it’s now much easier to get in on the action. At $15 (here at Target), it’s not cheap, but then again, it beats the cost of a round trip to Paris. Keep reading »

Designer Will Make Bag Out Of Your Ex’s Jeans

They say ya gotta have a gimmick, and eco-designer Patricia Ordonez certainly has one down: Send her two pair of your ex’s jeans and she will craft them (along with burlap and broadcloth) into a custom-made tote bag ($90) or duffel ($125). Kind of funny, but we’re not sure we’d want to advertise all of that baggage. Would you? [Patty O Designs] Keep reading »

“Save The Boobs” Is A Cause That Excites Everyone


Our friends at Rethink Breast Cancer are always trying to think of new, creative ways to get young women involved in breast cancer prevention, treatment, and activism. Hence this new “Save the Boobs” public service announcement that’s making its way across the web. How glad are you that they picked a woman with real boobs for this? I swear, people (ahem, men) are starting to forget what they look like. Oh, and that BoobyBall thing they mention at the end? That’s Rethink’s annual fundraiser, which has raised half a million dollars since it started in 2002. This year, it’ll be held on a cruiseship on October 2nd. If you’re in Toronto, get tickets here. If you’re not, maybe you have a great idea that could qualify you for a Booby Innovation Grant. They give out up to $60K for innovative breast cancer-related projects. [Rethink] Keep reading »

Has Oprah Lost Her Swagger?

As a longtime worshiper at the temple of O, I have recently been questioning Oprah’s street cred. Is the talk show queen really slipping in popularity, as her seven-point Nielsen rating drop suggested? As soon as her 23rd season (yes, believe it) began, I got my answer … hell no! Fresh off tell-all interviews with Erin Andrews, and THE Whitney Houston, Oprah is back with a bang this season, proving that she is still the high priestess of hip. What’s in store for the eager viewers of America like me? Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Kelly Rowland

We award Kelly Rowland (seen here in the tents at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week) the Hair Model Citizen Award for keeping it nice and simple by sporting soft, natural-looking (though we know that always takes work) hair. To get a similar look, apply Curls’ Curl Gel-les’c to wet hair, create a thick braid, allow to air dry and take it out. [New York, 9/18/09] Keep reading »
