Rachel Bilson looks insane


Gorgeous Rachel Bilson looks weird here in this crazy outfit on the cover of Australian magazizne Shop Til You Drop. Lets start with the inch of fabric from her shirt peaking out from above the crazy corset belt. The little crest reminds of something out of a Harry Potter movie. Definitely not a good look. Next, lets take a stop at her corset belt straight out of the Middle Ages. It's a cross between a horse saddle, and Renaissance wardrobe malfunction gone awry. Ah well, atleast we can forgive her for the skirt, which I do think would look cute without the rest of her ensemble. I love the orange color, totally summery and fun, to bring us into August.

PhotobucketReady for the latest in spa pampering? Prepare to dunk your tootsies in a tank of water and let tiny carp nibble away.

Fish pedicures are creating something of a splash in the D.C. area, where a northern Virginia spa has been offering them for the past four months. John Ho, who runs the Yvonne Hair and Nails salon with his wife, Yvonne Le, said 5,000 people have taken the plunge so far.

"This is a good treatment for everyone who likes to have nice feet," Ho said.

He said he wanted to come up with something unique while finding a replacement for pedicures that use razors to scrape off dead skin. The razors have fallen out of favor with state regulators because of concerns about whether they're sanitary.

Ho was skeptical at first about the fish, which are called garra rufa but typically known as doctor fish. They were first used in Turkey and have become popular in some Asian countries.

But Ho doubted they would thrive in the warm water needed for a comfortable footbath. And he didn't know if customers would like the idea.

"I know people were a little intimidated at first," Ho said. "But I just said, 'Let's give it a shot.' "

Customers were quickly hooked.

Tracy Roberts, 33, of Rockville, Md., heard about it on a local radio show. She said it was "the best pedicure I ever had" and has spread the word to friends and co-workers.

"I'd been an athlete all my life, so I've always had calluses on my feet. This was the first time somebody got rid of my calluses completely," she said.

First time customer KaNin Reese, 32, of Washington, described the tingling sensation created by the toothless fish: "It kind of feels like your foot's asleep," she said.

The fish don't do the job alone. After 15 to 30 minutes in the tank, customers get a standard pedicure, made easier by the soft skin the doctor fish leave behind.

Ho believes his is the only salon in the country to offer the treatment, which costs $35 for 15 minutes and $50 for 30 minutes. The spa has more than 1,000 fish, with about 100 in each individual pedicure tank at any given time.

Dennis Arnold, a podiatrist who four years ago established the International Pedicure Association, said he had never heard of the treatment and doubts it will become widespread.

"I think most people would be afraid of it," he said.

Customer Patsy Fisher, 42, of Crofton, Md., admitted she was nervous as she prepared for her first fish pedicure. But her apprehension dissolved into laughter after she put her feet in the tank and the fish swarmed to her toes.

"It's a little ticklish, actually," she said.

Ho said the hot water in which the fish thrive doesn't support much plant or aquatic life, so they learned to feed on whatever food sources were available-including dead, flaking skin. They leave live skin alone because, without teeth, they can't bite it off.

In addition to offering pedicures, Ho hopes to establish a network of Doctor Fish Massage franchises and is evaluating a full-body fish treatment that, among other things, could treat psoriasis and other skin ailments.

Ho spent a year and about $40,000 getting the pedicures up and running, with a few hiccups along the way.

State regulations make no provision for regulating fish pedicures. But the county health department-which does regulate pools-required the salon to switch from a shallow, tiled communal pool that served as many as eight people to individual tanks in which the water is changed for each customer.

The communal pool also presented its own problem: At times the fish would flock to the feet of an individual with a surplus of dead skin, leaving others with a dearth of fish.

"It would sometimes be embarrassing for them but it was also really hilarious," Ho said.

rihanna bringin' the class back

Lindsay Lohan looks good here, and genuinely happy at the Sephora 10 Years of Gorgeous event on the 17th. I like her simple makeup, although her hair does make her look a tad washed out. She's wearing a beautiful color block sequined dress and a black bowler hat, which makes her look just the right amount of casual and glamorous.

matchy matchy

PhotobucketHere is a picture of Paris Hilton and Benji Madden on their way back home from enjoying a dinner at Tony Taverna in Malibu last weekend. A witness says they were very quiet at dinner. Hmm, trouble in paradise -- Could it be because of Paris' alleged flirting with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo?

No matter where Paris is going, she always manages to make some sort of fashion statement. She looks terrible. Why must she always match every aspect of her outfit? It looks tacky and rather childish. Seriously though, her sunglasses, the belt on her dress, her shoes, bag, and necklace are all the exact same color. Each of these items on their own quite nice accessories, but this girl has to pair them ALL together. That sort of planning ahead totally ruins any credit in a nice outfit. Boo!

lesson learned


Yesterday I tried on a pair of straight leg denim that just wasn't working for me. I'm about 5'5", 103 lbs, and I must say, I look GOOD in skinny jeans. Paired with some heels, I'm a regular runway model. But for some reason, this pair of jeans that was slighly loose, yet with a straight, skinny leg, did not flaunt my assets at all. My bum looked flat and boyish. My legs looked short. I discarded them quickly and moved onto some tight, form fitting flares. The immediate confidence boost had me rushing out of the store, tucking my overused credit card in its proper slot in my wallet, shopping bag flapping against my hip in new found denim glory. Now, although this story has nothing to do with the bane of the jean world's existence (besides denim shorts on men), the cigarette jean still plagues my mind. I found these pictures of Rihanna wearing a pair of Rock & Republic cigarette straight leg jeans, and for some reason, they work on her. Maybe because of her curvaceous figure. So the conclusion of this story is: CIGARETTE DENIM IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

chop chop chop


Check out these gorgeous snaps from the fall 2008 runway of Jean Paul Gaultier. Cut-outs are apparently the new thing, and I'm definitely not complaining! Honestly though, I would not try to obtain this look for less by using your own scissors on shirts. I have seen many a pretty shirt torn up and ending up looking like something from the 80's hair metal era.
