    We can believe these $170 lettuce sandals are a thing

    The hilarious $170 lettuce slides.Source:Supplied INTRODUCING the “lettuce slide,” a crunchy riff on the ubiquitous Adidas sport sandals from vegan footwear brand Rombaut. The garden variety wonders dispense with the classic striped band and instead stay on wearers’ feet with what appear to be crisp leaves of lettuce. The limited-edition rubber kicks are going for $US122 ($A170), enough to make many people choke on their salads. It may help to know that the vegetal slides aren’t merely shoes; they are objets d’art, according to Vogue. Turns out the concept was inspired by a series of vegetable shoe sculptures by Rombaut designer Mats Rombaut, including, writes Vogue, one with a “turnip…

    Incredible detail about Emma Stone’s dress

    Emma Stone sure knows how to rule a red carpet. The understated beauty with a self-deprecating charm, dazzled in pink as she arrived at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. The long-sleeved Louis Vuitton dress was covered in 63,000 twisted glass tubes to create a scale pattern on the dress — a work of art in itself — which took about 800 hours and a team of more than 30 embroiderers to bring it to life, Vuitton told People. It was also made of 14 metres of pink mousseline fabric. The 30-year-old, who is an ambassador for the French fashion house, completed her elegant look by adding a cylinder-shaped handbag and…

With a fashion sense known to ooze class — and access to some of the world’s most coveted designers from Alexander McQueen to Valentino — the 48-year-old has accumulated one jaw-dropping wardrobe. And her five million Instagram fans can’t get enough.

But the elegant Queen, who took the throne aged just 28, recently came under fire about her…

    Welcome to the age of ‘high-fashion water bottles’

You won’t find Emily Ratajkowski clutching a $3 water bottle from Kmart. Oh no.Source:Supplied A range of $AU67 “luxury…

    Duchess has Princess Diana-related nickname

When Meghan stepped out in a floor-length white gown for a black-tie dinner in Tonga on Thursday, it was her stunning aquamarine ring she flashed on her right hand that stole the…
