We love when Martha Stewart gets sassy.

The poster-goddess for perfection has been facing ridicule for her, let’s say, less than perfect food photographs on Twitter. You have to see to believe:

This morning on NBC’s TODAY show, correspondent Tamron Hall called Stewart out on the unflattering shots, bringing them up on a giant monitor and asking, skeptically, “This is a…soup of some kind?”

But Stewart was quick to defend her camera skills, making Hall zoom in on the second photo to point out the “delicious” cornichon (tiny pickles) in the blob of Russian dressing. Yum?

“And I’m going to take a lot more pictures on Thanksgiving,” Stewart warned. “So all of you out there who love my photos, just watch.”

Translation: Haters, I am flawless.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

The best part of Star Wars games is that they can easily be molded into different genres. It simply projects the idea of being able to provide service without restrictions in terms of location.
