Fashion students at the Bath Spa University apparently didn’t think that the commonly used fabrics like cotton, silk and linen were cutting it. So they went with a less likely fabric choice: cheese. The students — who also originated repulsive cheese shoes — heat molded and sculpted Pilgrims’ Choice Vintage, Extra Mature and Red Leicester cheeses into wearable dress forms, after being inspired by Lady Gaga’s odd choice of garments. But oh! Can you imagine the melting in the heat? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

It seems that the Playboy Club is enjoying something of a renaissance. First, there’s the sure-to-be-a-hit NBC show, “The Playboy Club,” debuting this fall, which takes place in the swinging ’60s. And now, the design team Marchesa has revamped the bunny costume for the club’s London location in the form of a delicious feather and sequins concoction. Designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman (seen here flanking the costume) only made one — which they say is a celebration of the female form, not a totem of objectification.
“What is wrong with celebrating women? I think it celebrates the female form. The women in here are pretty empowered. Take Debbie Harry, a former Playboy Bunny, she’s an incredible woman and an icon, and she’s had a fabulous career … It would be more repressive to tell women they can’t dress a certain way and the can’t do certain things,” said the pair of their creation. The one-off costume will be auctioned off in October to raise money for breast cancer awareness. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

As the King Missile song goes, “I want to be different, just like everybody else wants to be.” And apparently some very noncomformist guys are going to great lengths to make their girlfriends feel like the most different bride-to-be on the block. Check out this $9,000 Lucifer Vir Honestus engagement ring — all twisted rose gold, and statement jewels. It’s apparently the latest thing in engagement ring trends.

In the history of film, there have been some sexy female characters — Catwoman, Cleopatra, Annie Hall, Princess Leia, Catherine Tramell, just to name a few — but really, none can compare to Wendy Peffercorn from “The Sandlot.” Played by Marley Shelton, Wendy is a lifeguard at the community pool and the obsession of the pre-teen baseball team. Sitting up in her lifeguard tower in a red swimsuit and white cat-eye sunglasses … oiling … lotioning … oiling … lotioning … she is the epitome of 1960s style. Read on for a modern-day take on her perfect poolside ensemble (and don’t forget sunblock
!) Keep reading »
