Win a date with Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford auction

Cindy Crawford, remember her? Well now you can win a date with her … and by “win”, they mean bid, and by “date” they mean a meet and greet makeover. However they package this marketing ploy, if you have the cash you and a friend can hang with Cindy in New York when she announces her partnership with Remington grooming products.

Feeling guilty about bidding? Don’t worry, all of the proceeds will benefit charity. And when you remember that a charity lunch date with Jessica Biel fetched $30,000, Cindy’s current $7,600 leading bid makes this look like a bargain basement deal.

Previously: Jessica Biel sells herself for $30,000

New Yorker magazine Cover of the Year Rolling Stone Cover of the Year Economist Cover of the Year

A New Yorker magazine cover depicting President Bush being flooded in the Oval Office after Hurricane Katrina has been chosen by a panel of the nation’s magazine editors and designers as the best cover of the year.

The illustration shows the waters rising around Mr. Bush and his top appointees as the flood from New Orleans engulfs the White House, which was criticized for failing to respond promptly and fully to the disaster.

Barry Blitt drew the cover, entitled “Deluged,” which appeared on the Sept. 19, 2005 issue.

NY credit card subway map

If you’ve ever been to New York, you know how stupid one can look fumbling around with those massive subway maps. You also know how painfully difficult it is to find the pocket sized maps, and, if and when you do, how quickly they can disintegrate after just a few weeks of use. That’s where the Firebox New York Subway Credit Card Map comes into play. This ultra-chic sleek stainless steel sliver has a detailed etching of the NYC subway system in Manhattan. And for those on the other side of the pond, they also offer one for the London Tubes.

Alessandra Ambrosio Rock and Republic upskirt 2007

Alessandra Ambrosio heats up the runway at the Rock & Republic fashion show in NY. And you thought I was kidding with the whole sheer is the new black statement, didn’t you … That dress — I suppose you can call it that — looks pretty sheer to me, well, at least semi-sheer (and rather short). Regardless, it’s good to see that it’s all about the see-through this season!

Cocaine

Not to be confused with the white powdery stuff, this new energy drink offers what the makers bill as a legal alternative to blow. Doing Cocaine supposedly gives you a better high than any other energy drink on the market — without the lows. The effect, which is claimed to be part chemical and part psychological, hits you with a rush in the first 5 minutes, followed by a caffeine boost 15 minutes later. So just how strong is the drink? It’s claimed to be 350 percent stronger than Red Bull.

Cocaine made its debut at the Fashion Week runway parties, natch, and is slated to sold in select nightclubs in NY.

Liquids On A Plane

John Castle tries to add a little humor in light of yesterday’s news that the most mundane, comforting items — eye drops, bottled water, lip gloss, even books, on some international flights — had joined the list of items banned from carry-on baggage. This latest ban was implemented after British Officials announced Thursday that they had thwarted a terrorist plot to ignite liquid based explosives aboard several planes travelling from the UK to NY.
