Tex Mex Emojis

The glaring absence of a taco emoji has long plagued the millennial generation — but not for much longer.

Taco, burrito and cheese emojis are coming to a smartphone near you. The full list of new emoji offerings — which also include a unicorn, middle finger and race car are currently only available to beta testers of the iOS 9.1 software update.

Soon, however, the update will be universally available to iPhone users, and people can finally begin punctuating every sentence with a taco. (The expected roll-out date is September 16th.)

While we learned in June that the taco emoji was coming, we didn’t know what it would look like … or that it would be this breathtakingly beautiful.

On Wednesday, beta tester Ryan O’Donnell tweeted the new symbols. (And by the way, can we also talk about how perfect that hot dog is?)

The new food emoji offerings especially the addition of cheese will be a game-changer for emoji recipes. (Yes, emoji recipes are real and they’re spectacular.)

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.
