Furnish Your Pad With Pads

As a lady, you know that every month there will be blood. But designer Andy Kurovets wants Aunt Flo to move in with you permanently. Soak in his Hygienic Sanitary Pad Layers Table. If only we could really shelve our periods … but these will at least help you organize your bloody mess. Perhaps there is no more fitting furniture to store your chick-rock CD collection. Those Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, and Joni Mitchell records would look quite at home lined up on these sanitary napkins. Now, you gotta see what Andy did with with a tampon, after the jump! [WOW Report via Yanko Design] Keep reading »

Tween Fashion Blogger Tavi Lands POP Magazine Cover

Our favorite tween fashion blogger Tavi may not have scored the cover of Love, but it looks like she has landed on the latest issue of POP magazine, whose first relaunch issue under new editor Dasha Zhukova is due out soon. The black and white cover shows the Style Rookie blogger wearing some rad sequined shorts in front of a Damien Hirst background. We can’t say for sure whether this cover is official—it was posted on Grazia’s blog this morning (a pretty credible source), but the link has disappeared. The pic, however, is starting to make the rounds, so we’re assuming it’s a leak. Either way, we’re happy to see the smart and wacky Tavi gaining recognition. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

HP Unveils Computer With Compact

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. What you are staring at is the ultimate girly computer. This Hewlett-Packard Makeup laptop has a screen that can morph into a mirror at the touch of a button, a pop-up makeup tray and a nail polisher, all in one pretty, pink package. We appreciate the effort to cater to a girl’s needs, but these bells and whistles would thrill a tween way before they impress a teen, young adult or mature woman. Frankly, we like to save our mani-pedi’s for the spa; but we’d warm up to a computer which spit out extra cash to help with life’s little luxuries and a beeping sensor to avoid jerks. Keep reading »

Weird Machine Discovers The Number One Reason Why Condoms Break

Me? I don’t have a subscription to Contraception, the journal, but somebody out there must. Apparently, a trio of researchers set about studying the durability of condoms. After all, no one wants a condom that breaks, right? That’s so not sexy. Also? Babies. But how do you test a condom? Live models in the lab can be so, er, sticky. Instead, the team used a contraception testing mechanism called a “laboratory coital model.” Wow. That is hot! It’s what you see pictured here. Want to know why condoms break? Find out what the mecha-wang revealed after the jump. Keep reading »

Bernie Madoff Has Got A Winky Dink

On August 25, Sheryl Weinstein—the woman who says she had an affair with Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff—releases her book, Madoff’s Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie and Me. The New York Daily News got an advance copy, and plucked some choice details. Evidently, Sheryl and Bernie started boinking in 1993, at a hotel in Washington, DC. (Their first date was at a hotel two blocks from his Upper East Side penthouse apartment.) Her initial thoughts? “This man was not well-endowed.” Sheryl discussed his peen size with several friends, who took to calling him “Winky Dink.” [NY Daily News]

Oh, but that’s not all the Bernie Madoff affair news out today. Keep reading »

Are You An Agent Provocateur Or Victoria’s Secret Kind Of Gal?

Now that fancy British underwear brand Agent Provocateur is invading New York Fashion Week, we’re going to have to pick our allegiances: Is your loyalty to American mainstay Victoria’s Secret or Agent Provocateur, home to all things even vaguely kinky? Here are a few points to consider as you choose sides… Keep reading »

MERRIme.com: Episode 8

Betsey Johnson Releases Awesome Vintage Runway Footage

If you love to watch old runway videos as much as I do, has Betsey Johnson got a treat for us today! The designer just posted her runway archives, which, even if you’re not a huge fan of hers, are amazing for the following reasons: a.) They are a fascinating glimpse back at some crazy shows before Fashion Week became this colossal commercial entity; b.) They remind us that her dresses were what all the cool girls were wearing during the ’80s; and c.) Her sense of fun and whimsy hasn’t changed over the years. You won’t see stompy, sad-eyed models moping down a Betsey catwalk, and to this day the designer still does a cartwheel at the end of the presentation. Can’t imagine her colleague, Carolina Herrera, doing that — ya know? Enjoy the vid above, which starts out with the amazing, groundbreaking-back-in-the-day black supermodel Pat Cleveland freakin’ working it. Watch the rest here.

Artist Carves Faces Out Of Fashion Magazines

We here at Der Frisky are loving these amazing carved fashion magazine artworks by Nate Page. We’re not entirely sure how he reconstructs these deconstructed glossy pages, but it involves “drawing and assemblage,” and the results are beautiful and haunting. Here, he appears to have carved the face out of Naomi Watts on the cover of Vogue Australia to creepy cool effect, leaving nothing but the eyes staring out. I used to keep all my magazines, until they stood in towering stacks. It’s lovely to see someone make art out of what we stare at that stares back at us. (See also: Nina Chakrabarti) One more, after the jump… Keep reading »

Gallery: Anti-Bridal Wedding Dresses

nonbridal g1 jpg
I recently caught a look at the new Fall/Winter 2009 Bottega Veneta ad campaign and fell in love with this dress—and then thought, wouldn’t it be a cool alternative to the usual bridal gowns? Screw Vera, why not just spend all those thousands on a dress that doesn’t scream “I’m a bride/fairy princess/cupcake”? (Well, if you’re willing to spend thousands on a wedding dress, that is. No judgments either way!) Plus, you end up with this very chic, elegant dress that you could theoretically wear again, right? While we all can’t afford Bottega, wedding gown or otherwise, there are other white dresses out there that would be perfect for a trip down the aisle and just a trip to a fancy party. Check ‘em out…
