Quiz: Stripper Heel Or Designer Shoe?

quiz 032311 m jpg
Shoes are pretty out of control these days, and we’re not complaining. The higher the heel, the closer to God (or is that hair?). In any case, it seems that more and more designers are taking a cue from the strip clubs of the world, making shoes with impossibly high platforms and gaudy detailing. It’s getting hard to tell whose been working the poll and whose been working the runway. We figured we couldn’t be the only ones noticing this sky-high platform trend, so we thought we’d give you, dear readers, a challenge: Which of the following shoes are stripper heels, and which are high-end designer shoes, worth thousands of dollars? Take our quiz and find out!

Models Eat Cotton Balls Dipped In OJ & Other Troubling Observations By One Model’s Mama

No matter how badly a mother wants her daughter to succeed, she has every reason to be freaked out when she sees that her daughter’s contemporaries consider “lunch” to be dipping a cotton ball in OJ and eating it. Model Sessilee Lopez‘s (left) mother, Janice Celeste, has just self-published a guidebook for parents with daughters in the modeling industry called Making a Supermodel. Janice said she published the book on Lulu.com because other parents often messaged the self-titled “momager” on Facebook with questions and concerns about the modeling industry. So, what horrifying tidbits does Sessilee’s mom have to scare share with other parents? Models often sleep 12 to a room, steal each other’s personal possessions, and sometimes have agency-approved “chaperones” who are not much older than the models themselves. This book, plus Crystal Renn’s eating disorder memoir Hungry, could probably dissuade any parent from letting their daughter model — or make them more cautious. Which, let’s be honest, would be a good thing. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

  • Comedian Bill Maher, who fancies himself “edgy” or something, called Sarah Palin a “dumb tw*t” on Friday night’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher.” Because, you know, he’s edgy! The National Organization for Women swiftly responded with a rolling-their-eyes statement. “Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don’t like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs,” said Lisa Bennett, NOW’s communications director, in a statement. “If you think someone’s an idiot or a danger to the country, feel free to say so, but try to keep their sex out of it. Sexist insults have an impact on all women.” [Examiner]
  • Breestfeeding women are perceived as less competent, according to a study out of Oxford University. Oh, joy, more bias against mothers! But what about breestfeeding four-year-old girls? [Miller-McCune]
  • Three transgender people have filed a lawsuit against the City of New York and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene claiming that the requirement that they undergo several sex change surgeries before they can legally change their gender on their birth certificate is prohibitive.
