Christian Louboutin Fetish Shoes

These incredibly bizarre Christian Louboutin stilettos like they would leave the wearer in absolute agony, but that’s part of the point. They’re part of the Fetish exhibit at the Galerie du Passage in Paris.
Going on point is one of the most difficult parts of formal ballet training, and while these make it easier to stay on your tip-toes, taking the strain off your toes, they’d likely torture other muscles instead.
Would walking in these even be possible? I don’t think it matters, the wearer probably wouldn’t be standing long anyway! You know what? I am going to sit this one out and let CL do his thing! Absolutely No Comment!

Celebrity Fashion Robots - Gwyneth Paltrow In Vogue

The intrigue with futurism and robots has permeated the fashion industry, with space-inspired styles supplementing the growing integration of robots and smart technologies in our daily lives.
Labels like Diesel have captured these elements in futuristic photoshoots, but to further solidify the movement and take it to the next level—potentially pushing mainstream—top tier sartorial magazines are capturing celebrities in galactic wardrobes.
In a shoot by Steven Klein, Gwyneth Paltrow posed in a bikini for Vogue with slicked back hair and smoky eyes that would have made for a beautiful, yet ordinary, editorial spread, but the fashion magazine dared to awe by transforming her right arm into a robotic aparatus.
The shoot was meant to promote her new movie, Iron Man, but it worked as so much more. In addition to adding something unconventional yet cutting edge in terms of fashion, it was also a clever way to accentuate the muscle tone in her body without making it about sexual objectification.

Magical Glass Concept - Tablet Tells You About What You See

I instantly fell in love with this concept. Imagine having a magical glass with you that you can use to obtain information about anything you see.
The thin ultra-connected tablet device by Japanese Mac Funamizu doesn’t have a name yet, but it really is like a magical glass, a window to the world. You look through the glass, choose any object you want, and you can instantly access a multitude of information about it.
You can use it when you want to know a car model, an insect name, what kind of food is served at a restaurant and how much it costs, who built a bridge, etc. etc. Choose a building or a monument and it brings you details of the location and features of the area. You can use it to check the meaning of a word in the newspaper, book, magazine, etc. You can opt for a dictionary, wikipedia, thesaurus and anything else available on the web.
Imagine having this device when you are on vacation or a trip. Such an exciting way to explore new places. Now that's what I'm talking about! Instant Education!
"All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own."--– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
