Melania Trump’s travel shoes are sky-high Louboutins

What a heel! Melania Trump kicked off her husband’s European tour wearing two different pairs of sky-high $795 pumps for the trip to Belgium. Last month, Melania’s most buzzed-about jet-setting look was an inexpensive $39 Zara jacket emblazoned with “I really don’t care, do u?” in graffiti on the back, worn to visit immigrant children detained at the Texas border. But based on the careful polish of these two latest looks, she just might’ve switched over to a “Why yes, I do care” vibe. Leaving the White House on Monday,…

You won’t find this bizarre iPhone holder at Apple stores

Hold the phone! Or don’t. Luxury house Maison Margiela has created a bizarre new accessory: an ankle holster for your iPhone. The hands-free carrier clamps right on to a shoe or boot, for that I’m-taking-an-intoxicatingly-boring-video-of-the-curb look. Other possible uses include an artistic “in my shoes” live feed, or – as Wall Street Journal style reporter Jacob Gallagher tweets – a video showing for media-starved vermin, like rats and ants. No word yet on how buyers can get their hands — or feet — on these John Galliano-designed runway accessories. Share this: Copyrighted…

Pretending to have a headache is now a selfie trend

There’s serious pressure these days to upload the perfect snapshot on Instagram, so why not look the way you feel? That seems to be the point of the newest social media photo trend, the “migraine pose.” Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski have all adopted the look, which pretty much involves placing one or both hands on your temples as if to say “ouch” (or, in some cases, “woe is me”). According to Elle.com, makeup artist Nam Vo — a favorite of Kylie Jenner — coined the…

Now influencers can float to their picturesque deaths

Goodbye unicorns, swans, pizza slices and flamingos. With this ghastly new pool float, you can sleep with the fishes. A millennial-pink, coffin-shaped pool float is the new summer must-have, according to the internet. Designed by Andrew Greenbaum and Ian Felton, the oversized float has raised edges and a removable lid to allow you to rest in peace without any watery disturbances. The design duo came up with the idea to create the float three years ago. They designed a mock-up of the float — and when the images gained traction…

Suitor presses case to buy Perry Ellis

The Perry Ellis board needs to work on its math. The New York company trying to take the apparel company private said its $28-a-share offer is clearly “superior” to a rival bid from the firm’s founder — but was nonetheless deemed “insufficient.” “We are confident that your shareholders will conclude that $28.00 per share is superior to $27.50 per share, and thus that our proposal is in fact a superior proposal,” Jeffrey Spiegel, chief executive of Randa Accessories, said in a letter to the Perry Ellis board sent Monday. The…

These high-tech clothes block sunlight better than sunscreen

Sunscreen isn’t the only defense we have against the sun. A growing number of companies are starting to offer clothes with UPF, or ultraviolet protection factor. Think of it as the sartorial equivalent of sunscreen’s SPF, but with UPF you don’t have to reapply every two hours. “People think a T-shirt is protecting them from the sun, but an average cotton tee has an SPF of about 8,” says dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler. Although you’re probably not getting sunburned through your clothes, you’re still at risk for other sun damage…

Wearing neckties reduces blood flow to the brain

Comfortably dressed men may be smarter and higher-functioning than guys who wear ties — because the neckwear reduces blood flow to the brain, according to new research. The uncomfortable office attire squeezes neck veins, potentially slowing down the brain’s processing, according to a report published last week in the journal Neuroradiology. Scientists at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Germany scanned the brains of 30 healthy young men, according to the medical news site Auntminnie.com. For the study, half of the men were instructed to wear comfy open-collared shirts, and the…

This design duo turns prosthetic limbs into works of art

These prosthetic covers marry flair with function. McCauley Wanner and Ryan Palibroda craft stylish leg and arm covers that people can actually afford through their British Columbia-based Alleles Design Studio, which they launched in 2013. The covers, currently on display in an inclusive design and accessibility exhibition at New York’s Cooper Hewitt museum, began as an effort to usher design and beauty “into an industry that’s very clinical,” Wanner told Moneyish. “We weren’t designing for insurance companies; we weren’t designing for prosthetists; we weren’t designing for clinicians. We’re designing for…
