“Giant hair bows” were recently featured on a Huffington Post list of fashion trends guys hate, which made me love them even more than I already did. This loose, half updo would be totally man-friendly on its own, but once you add the big ass bow, it’s like, “Sorry dudes, I do my hair to please me (and also my 6-year-old niece).” Plus, as The Cut pointed out, that list can be used like a guide of What To Wear To Get Basic Bros To Leave You Alone. Yet another reason to embrace the big ass bow.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the world’s first champagne vending machine, which has been unveiled at Selfridge’s department store in London. The shiny dream machine uses a golden robotic arm to gently dispense jewel-encrusted mini bottles of Moet & Chandon champagne for $30 a pop, and I want one of these in my house RIGHT NOW.

And don’t ignore short, romper-style jumpsuits either — just throw on a pair of tight underneath and you’re good to go. Here are 20 reasons to consider the jumpsuit this holiday season…
Excuse me, Melissa Joan Hart? I know you’re on your way into the premiere of “Frozen” but I really feel like someone should tell you this. You have something on your face. Specifically your forehead. Wait, there’s some around your nose and mouth too. Powdered sugar? Cocaine? Translucent powder? Probably the latter, most likely, though it’s hard to understand how any self-respecting makeup artist could let Melissa leave the house without blending in her makeup, like, at all. Ahh well, at least the theater was dark.
We may think celebrities are always picture perfect, but every once in a while we see behind the curtain — especially when those bright bulbs are flashing on the red carpet. Makeup is required. More specifically, powder. But it’s a delicate balance. Too much and your favorite celeb may look like a clown, too little and they’re shinier than an oil slick.
