Dressing Like A Circus Freak Isn’t An Insult Anymore

We know, we get it: Vampire fashion is so hot right now. But we all know human blood (or True Blood, for that matter), is a bitch to get out of silk. What’s another trend you can jump on? Circus chic. No, seriously…

Vanity iPhone App Says You’re Ugly!

The Vanity iPhone app is the latest application to confuse us because it somehow judges “beauty.” All you have to do is import a face-forward, close-up photo into the app, and it will instruct you to mark certain areas of your face, like the outline of your nose and the bottom-center of your chin. Then, you press “calculate” to have either your ego crushed or inflated, as the Vanity iPhone App judges your beauty on a scale of one to 10. The app doesn’t account for hairstyle, flawless skin, or smile because it only measures proportions, and I suspect it also ignores the fact that different races have different facial feature proportions. Amelia decided to test it out and confirmed what we already suspected — that myself, Catherine, and Simcha are all more beautiful than Megan Fox. Amelia’s dog Lucca wasn’t far behind. Our plastic wild hog was not so lucky. Worth paying the $2.99 for confirmation, though! [Daily Beauty Reporter Blog] Keep reading »

Watch Out, Hackers Could Take Over Your iPhone!!!

To all of you who have ever engaged in the BlackBerry versus iPhone debate, well, I hate to say it, but BlackBerry-toting owners are laughing today. It appears that the iPhone has a major flaw—it can be hacked via text messages. I know, I know, it’s terrifying. But try to remain calm. Take a deep breath and keep reading. Keep reading »

Get Tested For STDs And Win An iPod Or Wii!

Want a new iPod? Or a Wii? Or a Fujitsu laptop? Get tested for STDs! In a new attempt to get England’s sexually rampant youth out of the bedroom and into a clinic, Britain’s National Health Service is entering folks who get tested in raffles for expensive high-tech toys and even weekend getaways. Why? Because there’s been a serious chlamydia outbreak there lately, and the disease is now the number one STD in the country. The NHS is dipping into taxpayer’s money, practically bribing folks to get tested. [Daily Mail]

Rad (Hourani) Clothes On The Cheap

We already love the young, Paris-based designer Rad Hourani’s aesthetic–which, as WWD puts it best, is all about “experimental cuts and hard-edged rocker-Goth vibe.” The $500 to $5,000 price tags? Eh, not so much. So we’re completely overjoyed to hear that Rad by Rad Hourani is coming to a store (or website) near us soon. The diffusion line will be a more reasonable $100 to $300, and, even cooler, is made up of angular cuts in a gritty black, white, and charcoal palette and designs that are unisex. (Although, it would take an unusually stylish man to rock some of the looks.) Whether it will be more of a hit with the boys or girls, we’re totally feeling the drapey yet structured feel that’s so reminiscent of Comme des Garcons, Ann Demeulemeester, and, of course, Rad himself, served up at much lower prices. The only downside? We’ll have to wait until November to get our grubby little hands on the goods. A closer look after the jump! [WWD] Keep reading »

WTF?! Nike Releases Will Ferrell Sneaker

Nike has released a new version of the SB Dunk Low inspired by Will Ferrell‘s Ron Burgundy character in “Anchorman.” We’ve seen very few things as fugly as these shoes. Was it really necessary to have burgundy suede, striped polyester, tan suede, white leather, and a bright yellow Nike Swoop all on the same sneaker? I think not. Ron Burgundy’s suits were a joke and should have stayed that way. Thankfully, the Will Ferrell sneaker will only be sold in Japan, so we won’t have to witness a wanna-be hipster trying to rock them.

We Time Our Blinking So We Don’t Miss The Action

Us humans have to blink, and we need to do it often. But while we watch movies, it appears we switch it up. Apparently, when sitting in a movie theater, we slow down our blinking, doing it enough to keep our eyes moist, but not enough to make us miss too much of the action. In the end, during a 150-minute movie, we spend a total of 15 minutes blinking. Even more interesting—we time said blinks strategically. Often, a group of people in a movie theater will blink at the exact same time. Synchronized blinking! That’s pretty sweet, huh? [NewScientist.com] Keep reading »
