Pictured above: Carolina and Liliana Falcone, twins who are now 5 years old. Their parents are Philip Falcone, a filthy rich investor, and Lisa Falcone, who apparently married in some rags-to-riches story and is now a fashion-obsessed indie movie producer.

Reports New York magazine, on their 18th birthday, “[the twins are] to open a treasure trove of designer frocks that’s presently being collected for them.” The lot already includes examples by luxury designers like Oscar de la Renta.

In a lot of cases, these cards aren’t even really greeting cards as much as they’re photos of friends’ kids with text below their smiling faces that says something like “Happy Holidays! From the Gordmans!” The back of the photo cards are almost always blank with plenty of room for a brief greeting. So, why isn’t there one? Keep reading »
Introducing “Footstickers,” which are exactly what they sound like—stickers for your feet so that you can be as close to barefoot as possible without having to actually touch the ground.
