    Sneezing Fetishes, Say What?

    Sometimes I think I’ve heard it all and then something like sneezing fetishes comes across my radar and I realize I haven’t heard ANYTHING. Obviously, there technically fetishes for everything (Soup fetishists! Foot fetishists! Puke fetishists!), which is why there are so many “-philias,” but I wasn’t aware that many of these fetishes actually had resources and an audience. So, take sneezing fetishists, who are turned on by the visual and auditory results of a sneeze. Hopefully these folks aren’t trolling the cold and flu aisle at Rite-Aid, because there’s the perfect outlet on YouTube, where there’s a channel devoted to videos of people sneezing. Subscribers to this channel are hardly future ear, nose, and throat doctors, and the appreciation for the quality and authenticity of a sneeze is fascinating. Take the description accompanying the video above: “Lacey is awesome with her latest video. Flared nostrils, false starts, soft tissues sneezes and that gorgeous ‘pre-sneeze face’ A BLONDE SNEEZE DREAM!” Wow. I’m curious how much sneeze fetishists might pay a gal to sneeze on command?

    The Fashion World Salutes Our New President

    Ever since Barack Obama began campaigning for the presidency, designers of a wide range of products have latched on to his marketability. And, at last, good old American pride seems to have gotten high fashion cred. Photographer Bruce Weber shot two models wearing Obama shirts with designer skirts and head pieces for Italian Vogue, and Elle‘s Kate Lanphear showed her presidential approval on Inauguration Day by sporting an “Obama Mama” tee. But Obama-fever isn’t relegated to T-shirts. A model who looks a little bit like our president closed Lanvin’s Fall 2009 show in Sunday. Hooray for the U.S.A.!

    I Wanna Dress Like: Mary Poppins

    mary poppins movie still c jpg
    This year marks the 45th anniversary of “Mary Poppins,” one of my all-time favorite movies. While I had never really thought of Mary as a fashion icon, the Spring 2009 Marc Jacobs show made me see otherwise. When the models came out wearing fabulous squashed straw boater hats, images of the ultimate super-nanny popped into my head. Borrow some of these Mary Poppins-inspired accessories, and you’ll look simply supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    How To Make Your Rack The Center Of Attention

    Veronica Valter, of Million Dollar Looks, wrote an awesome story called “7 Tips For Women With A Big Bust.” While her advice, from getting bras that fit to swimsuits with cup support, was all good, it was a little too modest for girl like me with big ta-ta’s who likes her bragging rights. If I wanted to lessen the impact of my golden globes, I would have gotten a breast reduction like our babelicious Wendy. Her new sweater kittens are sweet and really prove that any titty committee is sexy. Well, I’ve got some tips of my own, and I think they work on melons, both big and small. But they do require one special size — a gigantic amount of confidence. Especially if you’re stacked, there is just no hiding them. So why try to conceal what was made to be revealed? With that ethos, here is my advice for making your tits the center of attention!

    1. Make-Up: This tip is the gospel truth I learned from the Queen of Cleave herself, Dolly Parton. We all pay so much attention to evening the skin on our face, but what about our boobs?! After all, all eyes are on them — even if you’re surrounded by a band, Kenny Rogers, back up singers, and giant sparkly set pieces. So, use powder or bronzer and, in some cases, even blush, to make your cleavage pop and match the tan on your face. Now, think twice about using something extreme like foundation; it’s only for those times when you have a blemish to hide and, even then, use sparingly. No one wants to peel off your bra and see a painted tan line…or worse yet, eat that bad make-up job! Keep reading »

    Ugh, More “Charlie’s Angels”

    While promoting “He’s Just Not That Into You,” Drew Barrymore revealed that she’s totally into doing another “Charlie’s Angels” sequel. But we aren’t! We think it’s time to let this franchise die. I mean, it has been lying dormant for more than five years. Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Barrymore do exhibit girl power to an extent because they play butt-kicking private detectives. But I’d much rather watch them as well-developed and defined characters in a much less predictable film. It’s about time we have a movie with a serious heroine who doesn’t have to resort to comedy or campy antics, but saves the day with her wits and fighting ability. The guys have done it, now it’s time to let the women have a go. But I guess when it comes to movie-making, art is just not as important as money. The “Charlie’s Angels” franchise has grossed $544 million worldwide. [E! Online] Keep reading »

    Crave: Lush Double Fast Luck Emotibomb

    If your 2009 isn’t quite getting off to the start you’d been hoping, you get another chance today with the Chinese New Year. Traditionally, money is given in red envelopes to unmarried young people, bringing both the giver and the recipient good fortune — that’s why this Double Fast Luck Emotibomb from Lush is in the shape of a coin. Put it on the floor of your shower and a spicy-orange scent emits from it, along with (we hope) good luck for the new year. [$3.95, LushUSA.com] Keep reading »

    Sasha and Malia Obama Look-A-Likes

    America is obsessed with the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama. It’s not enough that they have inspired the children’s fashion world with trendy J. Crew clothes, or that Ty has created dolls with their names (and likeness). Now, you will start to see more Sasha and Malia look-a-likes on the fashion runway and print ads. Advertisers and talent scouts are scrambling to search for children that resemble the first daughters. Marlene Wallach, president of modeling agency Wilhelmina Kids & Teens, says the Obama girls are tough subjects to match. “It’s a very specific age and a very specific ethnicity, so there aren’t that many girls that would necessarily fit the bill.” However, two girls have found luck looking like Sasha and Malia and getting paid to do so. Wallach booked Ariel Binns (Sasha) and Kylah Williams (Malia) in the Sept 2008 issue of Harper’s Bazaar which featured a look-a-like Obama family — remember, Tyra Banks played Michelle Obama. Ariel told her mother she wants to go to D.C. to meet Sasha. I wonder if Secret Service would be able to tell them apart. I don’t see a resemblance but you be the judge. Keep reading »
