Wonkette's Top Ten Can Help You Be A Model Or Just Look Like One
Hello and welcome to the weekend!
First, some business. Shocking as this may be to believe, I am starting to run low on cat pictures (and pictures of other pets) for the "top ten" posts. So if you would like your kitty (or dog, or bird, or ... I think we had a chicken one time?) to be Wonkette famous, send a 600x900 picture of them to me at email@example.com. Please do not send me anything that's ... not that.
Anyway, here is a super weird video that I am now a little bit obsessed with — from some '90s (it *says* 90s, but those hairstyles say '80s) salon called "Styles on Video" where you could "try on" a bunch of hair styles before getting one. Which you can do now pretty easily. Hell, you can do it with makeup, which is how I spent four hours on the M.A.C. site last week.
Ah, the future!

Honestly, I am totally ready for big hair to make a comeback, mostly because I am an Italian woman from the east coast, but also I'm loving all of the oversized fashion lately. I have been waiting my entire damn life to wear shoulder pads, and I could not be happier that this time has finally arrived. Also giant sleeves. I love giant sleeves. I'm going to buy fabric and add giant sleeves to everything I own, because fuck normal sized sleeves. I am considering buying a Selkie puff dress (or a knockoff thereof) and I don't even care how Baby Jane it is.
Honestly it's possible that the combination of the pandemic and having literally been inside, surrounded by two feet of snow outside for the last five days, watching Project Runway, is getting to me. But I am all about women taking up space both metaphorically and literally, with giant sleeves and ridiculous organza dresses.
And with THAT to think about, I bring you our top ten stories of the week.
And with that, I leave you to talk amongst yourselves, until I come back with something else!
