Show Us Your Teats: Cow Nipple Couture

London-based British fashion designer, Rachel Freire, has animal rights activists screaming for her hide at Paris Fashion Week for some awesomely bizarre new looks made from, well...cow nipples.
UK animal rights group Viva say that, much like the use of fur, nips are just no place for the runway. But before you wail, "SAVE THE TATAS", Freire defends her use of 3000 cow and yak nipples as creating art from recycled waste.
Check out the latest nipple slip since Janet Jackson at the Superbowl inside.

Lady Gaga's Diamond Teeth Implants

Mother Monster, Lady Gaga will have her fans chanting "Show Me Your Teeth" after news of the pop star's recent request for diamond dental implants.
Although I had to scratch my temple on this one (per usual), I don't believe that her latest look will draw any comparisons to Lil Wayne and his famous iced-out grill. Nonetheless, Gaga has reportedly put in an order for marquis diamonds to be implanted in her teeth for the upcoming Thierry Mugler fashion show this month in Paris.

They say that you can't polish a... (ehem) but you can in fact turn the world's most inexpensive vehicle into a multi-million dollar spectacle. 
Indian automaker, Tata recently unveiled The GoldPlus Nano, a shamelessly ornate version of the once popular micro-car, worth 4.6 million dollars. Unlike the original Nano, which goes for around 3000 bucks, the blinged out version sports 194 pounds of hand-crafted 22-karat gold, 33 pounds of silver and 10,000 precious and semi-precious stones. 
Not sure if it comes with additional cup holders.

Made in China: Cultured Pearls

Not limited to knock off handbags, bootleg movies and the occasional American flag, China is currently the world largest producer of pearls. This is due to the booming business of cheaper farmed pearls that are being used in costume jewelry with a price point that is much more affordable than their saltwater counterparts. 
Some consider cultured, or man made pearls the wave of the future, such as Zhan Weijian, owner of Grace Pearls, one of the worlds largest pearl farming companies and creator of the "Edison" pearl. Others, who value the rarity and natural beauty of saltwater pearls feel that freshwater pearls are, in a sense, bastardizing the industry.
Are cultured pearls the new cubic zirconia?

"Golden Eye" Diamond to be Auctioned

We'll start the bidding at 900,000...
An insanely large and equally beautiful yellow diamond, seized by the US government after a money laundering investigation, went on the auction block today.
The 43.51 carat cushion cut "Golden Eye" diamond is an internally flawless, intense fancy yellow diamond, making it one of the most rare of its kind in the world. It was believed to have come from the Kimberley area of South Africa and somehow found its way into the hands of Ohio businessman Paul Monea. If the name sounds familiar (...) he's the guy who made millions after making the super popular ads for Billy Blanks during the Tae Bo crazy in the late 90's.
Monea is currently serving a 13 year prison sentence for his involvement in the money laundering bust, while the US Marshal service is set to make a huge payday after auctioning of the diamond which is believed to be worth 15-20 million dollars.
