Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
In a move that seemingly combines clip-on earrings and Bluetooth headset-style, jewelry line Super Fertile has created these, um, things that cover your entire ear. The collection is called “Rich Girl vs Poor Girl” (although unclear why, if anyone wants to take a gander…), and features laser cutouts of flowers, palm trees, and pineapples. Wear one, or double up on both ears for a full-on statement.
We’re on the fence about these doodads. With the right overall styling, a single clip could be quite interesting for a cutting edge evening look. On the other hand, you may risk looking like an extra in “Star Trek,” a granny with a fancy hearing aid, or an exec who had her cell’s earpiece recast in silver. Thoughts anyone?

During the recent couture week in Paris, designer Elie Saab showed an entirely white collection, which included matte ivory eyeshadow surrounding the models’ eyes. Sure, they looked a little like aliens or the White Witch from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I tried out some of the stuff, and without any coaxing, my friends started complimenting me on how fresh and awake I looked.
If you’d prefer more of a fairy goddess look than extreme runway style, follow Lily Allen’s lead and use a shimmering white. Whether you want to surround your eyes like she did or just apply a smidge on your lid is your call. Keep reading »
On Friday night, I went to see “Bruno.” I laughed. (Hardest at the part where Bruno goes camping with a bunch of rednecks and, as they sit around the campfire, he asks them which “Sex and the City” character they are.) I cried. (When Bruno’s velcro suit caused chaos at a fashion show, and he’s shunned by the entire Austrian fashion community.) I squirmed uncomfortably in my seat. (When a mom agrees that her 4-year-old would have liposuction in order to land a modeling gig. And again when Bruno crashes a swinger’s party and is repeatedly whipped by a woman with nipple rings. Now that I think about it, at least 40% of the scenes in the movie were squirm-worthy.) But as I left the theater, one big question kept running through my mind—how does Sacha Baron Cohen get away with these stunts without getting sued a hundred times a day? Keep reading »
Even Joe the Plumber can’t help her now! Sarah Palin has been slapped with her eighteenth ethics complaint. This one says Sarah didn’t turn over her duties as governor while she was running for VP, which she is supposed to do according to the state constitution. She also continued to accept a salary and even used her state staff to campaign outside Alaska. [Huffington Post]
Check out some of the other interesting ethics complaints Sarah has faced, after the jump. Keep reading »
Lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of Jon Gosselin and his new lady friend, Hailey Glassman. The 22-year-old looks vaguely like Kate without the porcupine hair, but friends describe her as a “party animal,” the kind that dances on bars and parties down with strippers. Oh, and she was arrested for smoking pot in 2005. In other words, she’s the anti-Kate. [People]
So what does this say about Jon? It looks like he’s trying to reclaim some of the party years he lost while raising all the family’s kidlets. But don’t give him too much credit—Jon is not a badass, and neither is this new woman. It was pot people! The only difference between her and a huge tract of the population is that she got caught. Jon may have put on an Ed Hardy shirt to match his new GF, but he’s still a khaki guy at heart.
Rebounds say a lot about a person. So we decided to look at other celebs who’ve hooked up right after the break up.
Here’s my worst first date story: she told me she was lactose intolerant, but ordered the French onion soup. I thought, “How irresponsible.” Every woman I know has at least one horrifying dating disaster tale. Most women have multiple ones. They usually begin with “I met him on Match.com” or “He was the best friend of my second cousin’s college roommate” and end with a daring escape, a mad dash into a cab, and unhinged texts from the guy for the next two weeks.
