Friday Fun (and silliness) with Silly Lips
Going Fauve with Sonia Rykiel

Curator's Corner, 8/11/2012

CC logoThis week's links. 

- So excited for some new Arrested Development

- Stereogum interviews one of my many idols.

- This is cool - it's the world's first exhibition on Alice in Wonderland.

- Have a gander at some of the most expensive shoes in the world.

- I'm not on Facebook, so clearly I am a sociopath.

On the beauty front (lots of nail news):

- In addition to the aforementioned world's priciest shoes, here are the most expensive beauty products.

- Check out photographer Leland Bobbé's half-drag portraits.

- The wildly popular beauty sample subscription service Birchbox surveyed 10,000 of its customers about beauty trends.  Unsurprisingly, the survey found that beachy waves were the most coveted hair style, but I was taken aback by the fact that only 2 out of 5 are "puzzled" by BB creams.  I admit I was when I first heard about them months ago, but they've been in the U.S. market for nearly a year now - I would think even non-beauty junkies would be familiar.

- Jezebel posts a very enlightening infographic showing the relationship between beauty and happiness.   Apparently Americans spend billions a year on beauty products but overall, we're still not very happy.  As the Dude would say, "That's f*ckin' interesting."

- Another story from Jezebel, this one exploring why nail art is still a woman's domain.

- The Fashion Spot gives us a brief history of the manicure.

- Olympic-themed nail art is old news.  Lucky Magazine presents manicures in honor of the Discovery Channel's Shark Week.

- Finally, I am gearing up to start a new series here at the Museum, which will be posted every few weeks (read:  whenever I get around to it).  I'm still struggling with a name...hopefully I can come up with something decent soon.  ;)
