Snoreplasty: The New Injection To End Snoring

Girls don’t snore, right? (Wink.) But your guy probably does. For those with snoring problems, there’s a frightening new solution—an injection treatment called “snoreplasty,” which can supposedly replace surgery for those who wish to solve their severe snoring issues (or, at least, appease the women they’re torturing on a nightly basis). The shot, currently available in England, is done under local anesthetic, and targets the roof of the mouth. The compound is a “hardening agent” which prevents vibration in the nasal passageways. While the injection sounds pretty suspect and a little nasty, snoreplasty is apparently cheap, only 3 GBPs (about $5), and it takes only two minutes to administer. Whaddya think? Wanna sign the man friend up? (Or, um, someone else you know?) [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

A Hair Raising Informercial


Too lazy to brush your own hair? No worries, help — or the worst twirled knot of your life — is on the way, for $34.95 plus shipping and handling. I don’t know what’s scarier, this rotating hair brush or the fact that the crazy abusive SlapChop guy’s commercials are still airing? [Everything Is Terrible] Keep reading »

Lourdes In Louboutins: At What Age Should Girls Start Wearing Designer?

It was inevitable that Madonna‘s eldest, Lourdes Ciccone Leon, would be a style icon by the time she became a teenager. Well, now we know what’s in the closet of the 13-year-old celebuspawn, thanks to the tell-tale red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes, which tend to retail at about $600 per pair. Here, Lourdes was recently spotted wearing a pair of these must-have studded flats. Of course, the children of celebrities are naturally predisposed to be well-dressed in luxury goods, and they’re some damn lucky kids. But for the rest of the “normal” world, at what age should girls be allowed to wear high-end designer labels? It seems like more and more, there’s a growing culture of teens and pre-teens who are just really, really well-dressed. Honestly, it does make us a little jealous. When we were 13 years old, we would have given anything to live in Cher Horowitz’s closet. How old were you when you started wearing more high-end goods? At what age is it appropriate (if any) for the younger set to start sporting Louboutins, Chanel purses, or whatever happens to be hot these days on Shopbop? [Style Frizz] Keep reading »

Hot Right Now: Bird Skull Jewelry

My first encounter with bird skull jewelry came a few weeks ago at a motorcycle/clothing/coffee (I know, weird combo) shop in the West Village. The ring was sterling silver and the bird skull cast was the perfect length for my finger, but the ring itself was too big. Much to my dismay, the smallest size the company makes slides around on my long, thin, witchy fingers. Being a bit on the obsessive side though, I decided not to let go of the dream but to hunt down an alternative bird skull ring. Much to my surprise, it wasn’t quite the hunt I’d expected. Bird skull jewelry is all over the place these days. Get your hands on some before you’re the only girl out there not wearing a necklace modeled after a skull. Cause how embarrassing would that be?!

The Fashion Peacekeepers: Ophelia Lovibond Is One Risky Ingenue

Sometimes we feel like E!’s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?

Never heard of British actress Ophelia Lovibond? You will. This young lady has a whole mess of movies coming out in 2010, and she’s got some kind of Audrey Tautou/Audrey Hepburn/Zooey Deschanel thing going on that people just go nuts for. Judging by what she wore to the premiere of “Nowhere Boy” in London this week, we also have the feeling she’ll have the privilege of ending up on a few worst-dressed lists at some point, too. Would I wear this silky blue, schoolgirl-inspired dress for a red carpet appearance? Eh, no. But then again no one is asking me to walk alongside Kristin Scott Thomas (her costar). It’s a little cray-cray, no doubt, but she looks kind of cute and refreshing. Love the fun matching earrings, plus she gets mega bonus points for thinking outside of the blowout/Herve Leger mini-dress box. Nice job, kid! Keep reading »

Anonymous Columnist Will Make You Never Want To Work In Fashion

Ever thought of making a career in the fashion world? The Daily Mail‘s anonymous “fashionista” columnist will definitely make you think twice. Reading her tales is kind of vom inducing, and her latest update recounts in shameless detail just how horrible she and her colleagues are. So, here’s our takeaway, boiled down for you, of what it means to work in the fashion industry, according to this nut anyway … Keep reading »

The Kaiser Loves Cotton Candy

Isn’t it kind of fun to see fashion gods like Chanel designer Keiser Karl Lagerfeld doing Normal People Things? Like eating sugar and chemicals (by which we mean cotton candy) in motorcycle gloves on the boardwalk? Racked like the idea of it and consequently asked readers to submit pictures of designers photoshopped into odd locales. The three finalists’ pics–one featuring Marc Jacobs, another the venerable Coco Chanel and the third, of course, Karl–are up for a vote today. Check them out and make your judgments here.

Want To Eat Dinner With Bella And Edward?

OK, I’ll admit that the Twilight obsession has officially gone too far. [The Robert Pattinson panties didn't do it? -- Editor] Personally, I’m a total sucker (heh) for the whole vampire trend. I read all of the Twilight books, saw the first movie, and recently fell in love with “The Vampire Diaries.” Whatever — the trend will end at some point. In the meantime, I’m enjoying my vampy entertainment. But now a couple, Annette and Tim Root of Forks, WA, decided to cash in on the obsession by launching a restaurant in the town where the books are set. Crossing the line much? It will be named Volterra, after the Italian city where the Volturi vampires live and so far it’s set to open next spring. What’s on the menu, considering vampires only eat blood? Appropriately, steak will be served (the rarer the better I’m sure) along with seafood options. Huh. What’s next, a glimmer charm school? [Eater] Keep reading »
