Back when she started out, Karen Elson had her eyebrows infamously off-ed at the suggestion of Steven Meisel. She catapulted to international fame fronting high-fashion campaigns and covers from W magazine to Italian Vogue. All this would suggest that the loss of one’s eyebrows is actually rather beneficial- a debate being started over on the Daily Mail website. In the latest Givenchy advert, model Adriana Lima shows off a pair of bleached brows and the Daily Mail is as always on the attack.
Radio DJ Chris Evans is the proud father of new-born son Noah and he has taken to his BBC blog to reveal pictures of his baby. Evans told readers of his BBC Radio Two blog that the new born child is “a little belter” and explains that “I know everyone says that about their own but he really is a bit special.” How adorable!
“…remember that there are no jokes when it comes to airport security.” Sage but inaccurate words from Bruce Schneier an aviation security expert commenting on what is currently the biggest joke in aviation security: the Gun Suitcase available from kidslivedesign.com retailing at a gun toting £98.
Matt Smith, a 26-year old actor and relative unknown, has been made the new Doctor Who and if not for anything else, he will be known as the youngest ever Doctor. Smith has appeared in theatre productions ‘That Face’ and ‘Swimming with Sharks.’ Smith is creating considerable drama with his appointment as The Doctor and my favourite (albeit unreliable) Daily Mail is reporting suspicions of a betting-related scandal.
With his thin frame, gauche mannerisms and androgynous looks, I think we have a potential style idol on our hands. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook wall.

“Bored of perfectly folded paper and exquisitely tied ribbon? Fancy adding a more ‘personal’ touch this year? Then why not have your Christmas presents CrapWrapped™ at Firebox. This exclusive, uniquely shoddy gift wrapping option involves us wrapping your pressies in a slapdash fashion. “
The Daily Mail reports that Firebox.com is paying “20 of its male forklift truck drivers and warehouse assistants to wrap presents as quickly as possible, using ugly brown duct tape and very little care” for their latest ‘CrapWrap’ service. The service has proved popular with over 500 Firebox customers after only a week of its launch but what do you think?
Is it a bit stereotypical to say that all men are bad at wrapping or do you agree with Geraldine James, buying manager for Christmas gifts at Selfridges, who states that “men are perfectly capable of wrapping presents beautifully. They choose to pretend they can’t so they don’t have to do it.”
Vote ‘Yay or Nay’ to the service after the jump!
Yesterday we saw Jamie Hince donning a rather hobo-chic look and today we hear that Tony Simm, a Gordon Ramsay lookalike (emm…not quite,) has come forward to tell the world of how he is being verbally attacked as a result of the famous TV Chef’s supposed-affair.
Simm, aged 50, tells the Daily Mail that “everyone used to like him, and being his double meant I’d get lots of good attention everytime I left the house. But since the news of him and his alleged mistress hit the headlines, I’ve been called a love cheat by about 50 angry women of all ages.”
Ever since Ronnie Wood ran off with his 18-year old mistress Ekaterina Ivanova, I have been keeping my eye on the new couple’s outfits. Throughout history, scandals have been defined by fashion; Princess Diana’s tiger-print swimsuit, Heather Mills’ patchwork suit, Monica Lewinsky’s ‘Blue Dress.’
Last week’s diet poll obviously hit home for a lot of you- but in a way that I had not expected. I confess to being a guy who is conscious of my weight and I have dieted. I see nothing wrong with wanting to fit into a pair of skinny jeans but thought I was of a minority. However, that appears not to be the case; 57% of you voted that there was nothing wrong with watching your weight and had therefore dieted.
While silently delighting in the sleazy nature of the Daily Mail, I found myself drawn to Corey Haim’s tale of Posh Spice’s lack of pulling prowess. He claims that when Mrs. Beckham kisses she “does this little grrhh thing. What did it feel like? Like a girl gnawing on your lip!” Oh yes, that feeling…?!
