These Game of Thrones Cupcakes Are Almost as Fierce as Daenerys’ Dragons

Guys. GUYS! The return of Games of Thrones is just a few days away, and we can hardly contain our excitement.

We’ve watched the GoT season 6 trailer more times than we care to admit, googled conspiracy theories about Jon Snow’s fate (he’s gotta still be on the show, right?) and raised many a glass of Westeros wine and Valar Moghulis beer during the offseason (for professional reasons, of course). Now there’s only one thing left to do: Channel our Thrones mania into dessert.

Before the HBO premiere on Sunday, April 24, we’re whipping up a big batch of these dragon cupcakes, inspired by Daenarys’ flying, fire-breathing creatures. (Because if there’s one thing we love as much as GoT, it’s cupcakes.)

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.
