Boyfriend into Japanese cartoons? Then he’ll love you in these extra-wide contact lenses from GEO Lens. The lenses sounded innocuous enough at first, but after two seconds of moderate internet investigation, I learned that the lenses primary function are to give your eyes the appearance of an anime character. WTF? The lenses are not only tinted unnatural colors, but are heavily tinted beyond the normal rim of your eye, into the the shape of anime-eyes. So all you have to do is pop a pair into your peepers and you are good to go do…well, whatever it is that anime characters do. Now if dating a guy with an anime fetish is questionable, making yourself look like an anime character is unquestionably bizarre. I shouldn’t judge — whatever you do in the privacy of your own home is your business. I will try not to pass judgment if looking like an anime character keeps things steamy in the bedroom. To each her own. I will, however, stare and/or laugh if I see you walking on the street with cartoon eyes.
Oh, FYI, you can only get a prescription from your doc, who might send you to a shrink instead. Keep reading »

Confession: I was kinda Goth in high school. Every Saturday night, I got out my black dress, fishnets, Doc Martins, slathered on the black eyeliner, white face powder, and vamp lipstick, and headed to my local Goth club to do the pain dance. Why? It was the best way to show the world how I felt on the inside—slightly dark and a wee bit odd. I’ve outgrown the phase, but let me tell ya, it’s not easy being goth. Forget being an inky soul in a world of full of people who can’t understand your damage, but getting dressed in all that gear is practically a full-time job. And then there’s summer—every Goth’s nightmare. Hot weather, sunshine, and happiness abound. A new blog, Goths In Hot Weather, is here to show us what Goths do during the summer months, and it certainly is not cute, my friends. Still, I just can’t stop looking. After the jump, favorite hot Goths from the site. Keep reading »
Nicky Hilton hardly ever crosses our minds, but when she makes an appearance via a paparazzo’s camera, we start thinking about what she’s been up to lately. It seems Paris, who recently dumped Doug Reinhardt, now has time to get the paps to pay attention to Nicky. [Hollywood, 6/11/09] Keep reading »
Before you get excited about having met your future hubby on Match.com, watch out — he might not exist. Sean McGinn, “witty and scruffy” Match.com user, had to find this one out the hard way. He had been sending carefully tailored e-mails out to hundreds of seemingly perfect women, only to find out that they were no more than vacant internet space. So, now he’s suing the website for “humiliation and disappointment.” He insists that Match.com “cease and desist its deceptive practices,” because they are “willfully causing emotional harm to the consumer and social harm to society at large.” I’m not sure what’s more embarrassing—the fact that McGinn was sending messages to nobody, or that he is suing Match.com for $5 million because of it. But even if he doesn’t win the lawsuit, the Brooklynite has something to smile about; he’s finally met someone special on the website he claims he was “defrauded” by. How ironic.

Tony Conigliaro based the No. 5 Champagne Cocktail on a famous perfume from a Parisian fashion house, which you should have guessed by now. He came up with the concept for the cocktail after realizing that the perfume-making process is similar to the way cocktails are made. First, he studied how that particular Chanel perfume is made. Then, he realized a sugar cube in the champagne was the perfect way to bring the notes to the top of the drink. It took two years-worth of trial and error to develop the cocktail, which was sampled at “The Bar with No Name” launch in Angel Islington, London. The No. 5 Champagne Cocktail is served in a wide-brim, bespoke flute to allow extra room for the bubbles to release. Conigliaro is the ambassador for French brand Merlet fruit liqueurs, and he knows his stuff when it comes to cocktails. He told Dazed Digital that the biggest cocktail myth is that martinis should be “shaken, not stirred.” Contrary to James Bonds’ tastes, he says, a martini will be too soggy if it’s shaken, instead of smooth and silky which is a result of stirring.

Kristen Stewart has a stinky little bedroom secret: she has an armpit licking fetish, otherwise known as maschalagnia. Right before news broke of her “fling” with Rupert Sanders, K-Stew told British Vogue’s Christa D’ Souza all about her kink. “My God, I’m so in love with my boyfriend. I wish he were here now. I think I want to have his babies. I love the way he smells. And him me. Like, he loves to lick under my armpits. I don’t get this obsession with washing the smell off. That smell of someone you love. Don’t you think it’s the whole point?” she said during an interview for the October issue of the magazine.
“Looking back, the exchange still feels surreal. It took place just three weeks before those incriminating pictures were allegedly taken. Was she even talking about Pattinson? Was she having on me? Who knows?” D’Souza says of the exchange. [Movieline]
Hmm. Good point. We wonder which licky, we mean, lucky, guy she was talking about. Robert Pattinson or Rupert Sanders? Either way, we hope Kristen is all showered up before she lets another tongue up in there. Otherwise, that could get funky. But hey, to each her own.

We’d seen the round glasses trend creeping up slowly for the last couple years. It became especially apparent the circle shades would blow up at some point when Mary-Kate Olsen, always the trendsetter, began wearing John Lennon-style wireframes on a regular basis. And then goggle-like pairs were paraded down the runways of Proenza Schouler, Lanvin, and Marc Jacobs. Now, the New York Times has declared this the summer of round-framed sunglasses, and we’re aghast. Keep reading »
