We like this latest entrant into the fashion video phenomenon starring flame-haired porn star Faye Reagan in the Married to the Mob, or MOB, fashion line. If you’re not familiar with the brand, Married to the Mob is streetwear designed by women for women: neon leggings, message tees, shiny bombers, skinny jeans. As Reagan’s character makes her way through the city, she keeps changing her clothes to the sound of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Runaway.” Reagan is cool, the clothes are cute, and the music is stellar. We dig it. [Vimeo] Keep reading »
A couple in Tokyo was recently married by, get this, a robot “priest.” The I-Fairy robots are traditionally used to give tours around museums and science exhibitions, but now I guess they can add wedding officiant to their job summary. The couple met when the bride, Satoko Inoue, worked at the company that makes the I-Fairy robots and the groom, Tomohiro Shibata, came in as a customer. They credit the robot for bringing them together, so they found it fitting that the I-Fairy would perform the ceremony. The couple say they just want people to see robots as a normal part of life and not merely as bits of metal and plastic. Fine, but where’s the romance?! The couple didn’t even touch each other during the service! Perhaps that’s just a cultural difference, but if that’s what our future with robots looks like, no thanks! [via BuzzFeed

Everyone knows that buying fake products contributes to terrible working conditions and child labor, but for some reason, New York City’s Canal Street is still full of tourists, desperate for a bad Louis Vuitton or Coach knockoff. But that’s not the only way to score a fake. Clueless shoppers buy knockoffs online every day, and Christian Louboutin has had enough! In hopes of drawing further attention to the problem, Mr. Louboutin created a website devoted entirely to the end of imitation shoes, especially ones that look like his designs. Stop Fake Louboutin provides not only a list of all the sites selling fakes of his shoes, but also this highly amusing video of a bulldozer destroying hundreds of cheap red-soled shoes. Take that fake Loubs! [Styleite] Keep reading »
