Today’s Lady News: Saudi Child Bride Forced To Return To Her 80-Year-Old Husband

  • A 10-year-old Saudi Arabian girl has been returned to her 80-year-old husband after hiding at her aunt’s home for 10 days. The marriage is allowed by Sharia law, which the husband has accused the girl’s aunt of violating by allowing the girl to hide from him. [Fox News] — Sheesh. And some people are worried about the age difference between Candace Bushnell and her husband?
  • PETA is taking down their crap billboard depicting a large woman, which says “Save The Whales! Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian.” [Jezebel]
  • U.K. health officials warn that some moms have given birth in hospital hallways, bathrooms and elevators due to maternity unit overcrowding. Maternity beds have been cut by almost 25 percent since 1997. [Sky News] — No wonder this woman had her baby on the pavement outside a British hospital.

    Woman Who Won The Lotto At 16 Is Now Broke At 22

    Callie Rogers won a £1.9 million lottery jackpot at the tender age of 16. Now, six years later, she’s attempted suicide twice, has moved back in with her mom, and is working three jobs to survive. The 22-year-old believes that winning the lottery ruined her life. “My life is a shambles,” she said. “[Winning the lottery] brought me nothing but unhappiness. It’s ruined my life. I’ve just wanted to make people happy by spending money on them. But it hasn’t made me happy. It just made me anxious that people are only after me for my money.” [Daily Mail]

    Um, how do you blow through over $3 million in six years? Apparently, with a little help from your friends … and deadbeat boyfriend. Keep reading »

    Uniqlo To Team Up With, Gulp, Disney?

    Uniqlo has been trying hard to keep up with the Topshops and H&Ms of the world lately by announcing new initiatives and designer collaborations. Yet, the Japanese retailer seems to be lacking in direction—last week’s debut of its Jil Sander collection didn’t quite live up to fab collab standards. Now Uniqlo has just announced that they’ve teamed up with Walt Disney to release a line of Disney-themed products next month.

    Is this move to satisfy Japanese American fandom? Uniqlo trying to be ironic? Or, the more likely scenario…an attempt to produce something cute. Or, as they say in Japan, kawaii. [WWD] Keep reading »

    A watch really isn’t a practical necessity in our high-tech world because we’re usually carrying around at least one time-telling gadget. But for some women, a watch is the boldest accessory she’ll ever wear. Then, the watch becomes a fashion necessity (because no outfit should be without at least one attention-grabber). Show off your wrist with one or several of these bold watches.

    Quick Pic: Rihanna’s Crazy Sunglasses Identified

    Um, no this is not Rihanna, but these are the insane studded pair of stunners she’s all about in the new “Run This Town” video by Jay-Z and featuring Kanye West. They are A-Morir by designer Kerin Rose and, yes, you can actually see through them. For $350 bucks, you’d better be able to. Sheesh. [High Snobiety] Keep reading »

    “Chelsea Lately” host Chelsea Handler just broke it off with her longterm boyfriend, Ted Harbert. The thing is, this dude is also the CEO of Comcast, which makes him Chelsea’s direct supervisor. Which, uh, if there are hard feelings, could be pretty disastrous for Chelsea and fans like us who think she has the best late-night show out there. [NY Daily News]

    Dating your boss is a tricky proposition. It can totally put your career on the fast track, but if the relationship ends, well, you could be out the door. Take a look at our slideshow of celebs who’ve dated their bosses to see the various scenarios of what can happen.

    Barbie Makeup We Actually Want To Wear

    “Barbie” and “makeup” aren’t words grown women use in the same sentence, but I’ll start by gushing over these cute Barbie Loves Stila eye makeup pots. The shimmery colors—Little Black Dress (a sexy charcoal), Cobalt Clutch (a bright royal blue) and Purple Pumps (violet like an orchid)—look just like grown-up versions of the ones found on Barbie’s eyes. And $20 seems like a bargain for Stila eye makeup that can be worn brightly, as an attention-grabbing liner or sexily as a muted eyeshadow. [Stila] Keep reading »

    Where The Fashion Elite (Don’t) Eat

    When it comes to fashion power breakfasts, Los Angeles has the Beverly Hills Hotel. Paris has the Four Seasons. And New York’s got Café Cluny. Nestled on a tree-lined street downtown in the West Village, if you’re there at 9:30 in the morning—yes, we get going a bit later than most—you’re bound to see half the magazine editors and publicists in the city picking at egg-white-and-herb omelets. (Note to the self-concious: steer clear.) Now that the scene feels so much like the (business class) flight from Milan to Paris, some are starting to trek back over to that old stomping ground and celebrity-favorite, Pastis. And so the cycle continues. Keep reading »

    Suck On After Dinner Nipples

    Dinner mints are boring yet practical. Most of us never really considered that mints could be updated. Andes Mints were doing their job, weren’t they? But there’s always room for improvement. Who would have guessed that changing their shape could make mints so interesting? I’d take the After Dinner Nipples, which are filled with mint fondant, out of the box, though, and see how many people actually notice the shape as they pop one in their mouths.
