Ke$ha's new video for "We R Who We R" is full of glitter, big bedhead, an outlandish handcuffs-and-crosses manicure, crazy eyebrows, and everything else we've come to expect from The Mighty $. Every time she releases a new video, she reminds me more of The Misfits from Jem and the Holograms (does anyone else get that?). If you're looking for a dirty, fun style fix, though, Ms. Sebert has you covered. Click through the gallery below to catch all the grunge and glitz:
If you wish you could get the Cullens' sweet golden eyes, a Swiss company called iSee has just developed a contact lens spray that comes in a truly vamp-tastic shade of yellow-hazel. Spray-in contacts may seem a little odd, but from the video on iSee's website, it seems you just spritz a mist from a portable atomizer into your eyes, and the "lens" supposedly stays in place for a full 24 hours. The company makes both a corrective lens spray, called W Eye, and a colored lens spray, called C-Style.
I can see how something like this would be fun, especially if, say, you wanted to force your boyfriend to dress up as Edward. But I wonder how you get the spray to stay put on just your iris and cornea. Besides the golden shade, the contacts also come in bright blue, amethyst, and gray, and I have a feeling that if I used this I might end up with purple splotches in the whites of my eyes.
Twihard or not, do you have any interest in a product like this, or is it just an unnecessary advance in technology?
Last week, my mom made two new friends: Bausch & Lomb. After years of sporting spectacles, she made the leap to wearing contacts. She's as giddy as a teenager, so I plan to surprise her with an out-of-the-ordinary case — something beyond the standard blue and white variety. So whether you have colored contacts, regular ones, or even some crazy ones left over from Halloween, here are 15 that you might want to consider.
From perfume bottles to bandages, you can find Swarovski crystals on just about anything — even these Swarovski crystal contact lenses. The unique contacts, which were created by Anthony Mallier, were designed for a contest held by Swarovski and Designboom in 2008. We've seen lots of crazy-looking contacts on the market, from teardrop contacts to St. Paddy's Day shamrocks. These bejeweled contacts aren't actually for sale, but if they were, would you wear them?
While you can opt for a sophisticated St. Patrick's Day, there are some who'd rather choose a blow-out, green-beer-guzzling good time. With the latter comes everything sparkly, green hair, and look-at-me beauty accessories. See where I'm headed with this? Check out a few over-the-top ideas to add that extra special touch to your St. Patrick's Day reverie.
With All Hallows' coming on apace, I got to thinking about fakey colored and crazy special effects contacts. I went through a phase where I had, alternately, violet, hazel, and dark blue eyes, and while it was fun, the people around me didn't seem to think it was as awesome as I did. I've even worn special effects contacts (they were cat's eyes for Halloween) and I thought they were pretty fun. But what about you? Have you ever used something like this for an extended period of time, or even just for a costume?
On the off chance that anime contact lenses aren't avant-garde enough for you, this should fit the bill. Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek has created contacts that give the appearance of crying. The crystal "tears" are attached to the contact by a thin wire, and due to interest from Klarenbeek's prototype, you'll soon be able to purchase a pair for about $270.
"You can't feel the wire dangling, it doesn't affect your sight and the lens moves along gently with your eyeball, even while blinking," Klarenbeek says. "If someone tugs on the wire while you are wearing it the lens will just fall out — or at the very worst the wire might break."

These "extra-wide" versions mimic the large-eyed look of anime heroines such as Sailor Moon, and they're becoming a trend in parts of Asia. A Korean company, DueBa, manufactures many of them, which sell for about $50 per pair.

When you go outside in the winter, you've got to protect your eyes from the amazingly bright glare of the snow's reflection.
I love my sunglasses in the summer, but in the winter, the plastic makes my face cold.
The solution? Nike Maxsight is an innovative, fully tinted soft contact lens.
It provides distortion-free optics, for both prescription and non-prescription contact lens wearers. They cover your entire pupil (the black part), eliminating glare and enhancing contrast.
Now you can have the luxury of sunglasses without the frame and the annoying fogging of the lenses you always get when you go inside to a warm place.
They filter out more than 90% of harmful blue light and 95% of UVA and UVB.
