The Sad Truth: Pretty Girls Get Free Stuff

Carolyn Owlett pulled her hair back into a ponytail, threw on a frumpy skirt, and walked around London asking if she could have everything for free, from a bus ride to a piece of cake. Most people looked at her like she was crazy. Then she curled her hair into shiny ringlets, put on makeup, a tight dress, and high heels, and did the same thing. Most people looked at her … and then gave her whatever she wanted. The results of her one-woman experiment are depressing, but also fascinating to watch. Would you agree with her findings? Have you witnessed the ways society rewards conventionally beautiful women or experienced them firsthand? [Bright Hands Pictures via Vimeo]

We All Scream For (Cold!) Ice Cream

Jamie Oliver might not approve of noshing ice cream straight from the pint. Then again, Aunt Flo never visits Jamie once a month, does she? With the summer months fast approaching, a girl’s got to do her best to keep Cherry Garcia from melting into a drippy, sticky mess. But this ingenious ice cream pint chiller will keep your cold carton encased in aluminum while you stuff your face — and save you the trouble of washing an extra bowl. It’s perfect for those nights when ice cream won’t last outside the freezer longer than Britney’s Vegas marriage. (Tampons and “The Notebook” DVD sold separately.)

Do Not Want: A YSL Bag Made Of Plastic Bags — For $1,720

For a while a few years ago, everywhere you looked you’d see those Anya Hindmarch “I Am Not a Plastic Bag” bags — a cheeky take on environmentalism and sustainability. Now, Yves St. Laurent has their own, rather twisted take on recycling; they’ve created a bag made from plastic bags and manufactured by artisans in Burkina Faso. And it costs $1,720. Called the “Muse Two Artisanal,” YSL says the bag show’s the company’s “commitment to innovation in design and particularly to corporate social responsibility, demonstrated in the initiative’s alliance with a non-profit women’s organization and its use of recycled materials.” But we’d like to know just how much of that immensely high sticker price is making it back to the women who made the bag.
