Gisele records Blodie’s Heart of Glass for H&M and Unicef, produced by the world renowned Bob Sinclair. Her voice is nice and all, but who cares really. This is about the bikini. And the Gisele-ness of it.

Ok Gisele. Ok. We surrender. You can do whatever you want 

It’s Earth Day, which means we’ve found the best way to pay homage to Mother Nature, by way of your closet, of course.

The team at B+T summed up everything we learned about your closets, and are convinced (more than ever) that the key to reducing our environmental footprints is by making second-hand purchases. If we all make small changes, we can make a big difference. 

Is Leo the New Steve Jobs?

Everyone knows (including the Academy) that we are all waiting for this poor man to get his much deserved Oscar. So all this boy needs is an Oscar bait: A biopic of someone who’s 2011 passing is still, for most of us, still an open wound. 

For the cherry on top of this delectable casting, the screenplay is set to be penned by The Social Network's Aaron Sorkin and Slumdog Millionaire’s Danny Boyle is in talks for directing. 

Excuse us while we dance like an early 90s millionaire with a drug habit.

10 things to read and see on Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! Otherwise known as the one day of the year everyone makes a little extra effort to recycle. No matter your engagement with environmental issues, it’s important to take the day (or the week) to think about this small ball of oxygen we live on, and start appreciating it. Use a reusable water bottle, bring your own bags to the grocery store, tuck an item instead of buying new… A small step can make a huge difference. We’ve compiled a special almost-midweek Best of the Web: Earth Day edition, so you can get your eco read on, from fun facts to scary notes that’ll make you rethink leaving the faucet open.

The song, “I Touch Myself” by Chrissy Amphlett has gone through a complete revelation - as soon as she found out that she had breast cancer, Chrissy made sure to have one of her hit singles made into a PSA for breast cancer awareness.

A year after her passing, her wish is now a reality. With the help of Cancer Counsil New South Wales, her widower, and a group of ten women, including Olivia Newton-John, Amphlett’s song is now a PSA. She encourages women to check themselves for any abnormalities, as she had both an ultrasound an a mammogram, which didn’t detect the cancer. 

Her message is simple and beautiful - touch yourself. Be safe.

Thank you, Chrissy Amphlett, your message has been heard.

The Celebrity Escargot Course

That’s the official name of the snail facial that is an actual thing in Tokyo right now. Staying true to it’s reputation of being highly innovative and ahead of the curve, Japan now has a spa that offers this slow-moving beauty technique. Essentially, a facialist places three snails on your face and lets them crawl around for a few minutes. Because beauty.

Try to imagine something trippy, psychedelic and colorful. Then multiply that by 100 and you’ll get Natasha and Monica Lopez de Victoria (you know how much we love our sister power duos!), who may be better known as the TM Sisters. The girls are some of the biggest fixtures down in Miami - and with good reason. Have you seen any of their retro visuals at Poplife parties? Or how about their most recent project, “Whirl Crash Go!”? The TM Sisters don’t restrict themselves only to performance art; thankfully, they give us a taste of dance, music, acting, installations etc. Thank you for doing you, ladies, thank you. We dare you to read on about our favorite techno-tropical, prismo-galactic princesses.

A Q&A with the girl behind JARS by Dani

What does a young grad do when moving to NYC with a pre-med education? Baking treats in jars might not be the first (or second) thing that pops into your mind, but young entrepreneur Dani Beckerman took her passion for sweet things and made it into a successful business. JARS by Dani: the simple concept of layering delicious desserts and capitalizing on the Instagrammibility of mason jars, combined with Dani’s fresh enthusiasm and passion. We chatted with Dani about being a young business woman, Instagram, and her amazing delivery outfits. (Oh, yeah, she delivers the jars herself. Talk about dedicated customer service.)

Gabriel Garcia Maquez Dies at 87

image

Nobel Prize winning Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, responsible for bringing us life altering epics the likes of 100 Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, passed away today.

Growing up in Colombia, Sari A, Sari B, and Ilana have each had a powerful connection to the father of Magic Realism. The Bib + Tuck team couldn’t be sadder about the loss of such a significant figure to our culture. 

Bringing to you our unofficial series of the absolute weirdest shit that happens on a New York City subway (the N train this time), one man decided he just couldn’t take it anymore.

He had to have his oysters. I mean, he packed a pocket-sized bottle of Tabasco. How convenient - how ingenious.
