Pierced Fashion Models—Sketch Or Trendsetting?

A Swedish fashion line called The Local Firm has released photographs of their Fall 2009 collection—and all of the models are seriously pierced up. I don’t know about you but I end up looking at the piercing way more than the actual clothes! Not that the images are all that shocking, really. Let’s be serious — there have been loads of actual “stunts” pulled throughout fashion history that are way more attention-grabbing. But for some reason, I was drawn to the photos. The piercings add another layer of interest—and they make me look a little longer than usual. It’s not just, “Oh, there’s Thom Browne’s or Tom Ford‘s newest collection or ad campaign,” but, “Hey there … get a load of this.” What about you? Check out more shots from the collection, after the jump! Keep reading »

Really? Nose Rings Are Back In Style?

There was a very special decade called the ’90s when body piercings really meant something to angsty teens struggling to take a stand and establish themselves as edgy, independent, and most of all “unique” individuals. Nose rings were an especially popular way to show the world that you were a totally badass Adult-with-a-capital-A, yet didn’t trust anyone over the age of say, 24. Those teenagers grew up and got Real Jobs and eventually ditched the ironworks, which is why we caught a wave of nostalgia when we spotted supermodel Iris Strubegger rocking a rather major septum piercing in this month’s (what else?) French Vogue. Keep reading »

Grown Up Things For The Little Ones

When I was a wee little girl, my best friend had a spa party where they did our make up, cut our hair, dolled us up… basically so we could all go home and take naps. Of course, spa parties still exist, but they’ve gotten way cooler. As Mom Logic pointed out, one 6-year-old’s spa party is calling for the “beauty treatment of your choice: a manicure, a pedicure, a classy ‘up-do,’ or a free ear piercing.” While some mothers are totally disgusted by the ear-piercing thing, I’d RSVP yes in a second!

I do agree that 6 years old can be a bit early to get your ears pierced, which made me wonder, what other things can kids have these days that are a bit too grown up for their age?

The Real Housewives Of 2019

We know what the real housewives of today look like. According to Bravo, they’re infighting California real estate agents, squabbling Atlanta athletes’ wives, back-stabbing aspiring New York City socialites, and now table-tossing New Jersey gangsters’ molls. But what will the housewives of the future look like? Photographer, filmmaker, and artist Erwin Olaf has created a very strange short film that takes a peek behind the linen curtains to find out. One online reviewer describes it as “Jacques Tati meets David Lynch.” I call it superfreaky. If you get bored with all the interior panning about, fast-forward to the 2:27 mark for the surreal reveal. Let’s hope the mothers-of-the-future don’t really turn out like these spooky cyborgian replicants. They might scare the babies. Keep reading »

Quickies!: Robert Pattinson Is Stinky

  • His hair isn’t the only thing Robert Pattinson doesn’t wash. His body odor is driving people on the “New Moon” set crazy, according to a source. [DListed]
  • Okay, so I thought the whole rappers stealing whole movie scenes for their videos was so over. But apparently not because Eminem recreates “Rain Man” for his “We Made You” video. Hopefully he pays homage and doesn’t poke fun at savants. [Perez Hilton]
  • Avril Lavigne describes her first fragrance as “me in a bottle.” So it smells like booze, cigarettes, and a doomed marriage? I wouldn’t want to smell like her or these other celebs. [People]

    Airport Security Plays With Pliers

    Back in 2004, Nicole Richie caused alarm when her nipple piercings set off airport security. While the reality show star got to go after she flashed TSA (Transportation Security Authority) officers, when you’re some nobody from Texas, they bring you a pair of pliers to fix the problem. On February 24th, Mandi Hamlin, 37, was asked to remove her nipple rings after they made the metal detector beep in Lubbock, Texas. Ms. Hamlin offered to show her body jewelry to TSA officers, but they told her that her only option was to take them out if she wanted to board her flight. At the time, she complied, crying from the pain of having to remove the rings with pliers since the skin had grown around them. But now Ms. Hamlin is asking for a public apology. She’s brought out famed feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, to stop this from happening to other travelers. “The last time that I checked a nipple was not a dangerous weapon,” Allred said. [CBS]
