Ready To Give Up On Life? What These Celebs Are Paying $800 For Will Certainly Help

On today’s episode of Everything is Terrible and Money’s the Worst, we present to you yet another celebrity atrocity.

When it comes to melting Amex cards, few do it better than the celebs we all love to resent with every fiber of our being. While we’re over here pinching pennies so that we don’t have to start eating cat food, they’re out living painfully lavish lives just ’cause.

Before we get into the thing that’s going to make you throw any hope you had left to the wind, let’s think for a moment about what someone could buy with, say, $800.

1. A new set of Goodyear tires with money to spare.

2. About 20 killer pairs of shoes from JustFab.com.

3. Roughly 645 boxes of dry pasta, because pasta will never leave you.

4. A 6.5-year subscription to Spotify.

5. A round-trip ticket from New York City to London.

6. A 2-year supply of paper towels.

7. An all-inclusive, 3-night getaway in the Bahamas.

But celebrities are over here like, “Forget all that. I need drop exorbitant amounts of money on something I could easily grab at Target.” Ladies and gentlemen, meet the infamous $800 sweatshirts by VÊTEMENTS.

Not everything produced by the brand, which is directed by Demna Gvasalia, is a complete and utter waste. In fact, the design house’s offbeat take on high fashion typically yields beautiful results. Even I must admit that this hoodie looked pretty fierce when it hit the runway.

But fierce enough for me to give up my half of the rent this month? Absolutely not. I think it’s safe to say, however, that these stars don’t see things the way I do. What’s up, Kanye?

Riri is apparently putting in the work it takes to wrap herself in $800 poly blend.

And if you ask Selena Gomez, there’s nothing better than turning a trip to the airport into a gross display of wealth!

Italian style darling Chiara Ferragni spits in the face of accessible fashion, because why relate to the millions of people who follow your blog, anyway?

Later that day, Kylie Jenner cried golden tears into her $30 açaí bowl on national television, because her struggle is “literally so real.”

Oh, and guess what. Both of these sweatshirts are completely sold out. Let that sink in.

Am I bitter? Absolutely! Do I wish that I was in a financial position that made spending $800 on leisure clothes seem like a good idea? Yup. Sadly for me (and basically everyone else), that’s probably not in the cards. If you need me, I’ll be in the throes of an existential crisis or something.

Animal Lovers Are REALLY Unhappy With This Celeb Fashion Trend

Every season, there’s some bizarre new celebrity fashion trend. We thought we’d seen it all — until Gucci released a pair of shoes that has animal rights activists everywhere hopping mad.

And when I say “hopping,” I mean it. Gucci showed off the shoes at Milan Fashion Week, and they’ve quickly become the must-have item for celebrities. What’s so bad about them, you ask?

The loafers are lined with fur — kangaroo fur, to be exact.

No one likes to think about a kangaroo dying for a pair of loafers, but that hasn’t stopped celebs from wearing them.

Dr. Daniel Ramp of the University of Technology Sydney told the Daily Mail that “using kangaroo fur to produce fashion footwear is exploitation, especially since populations are in decline. The killing of these animals is inhumane, there is collateral damage and kangaroo culling has a large social cost on the remaining families and their young. Kangaroos are not objects — they are highly intelligent social animals.”

British model Alexa Chung was spotted wearing them at Milan Fashion Week, as you can see below. Other fans of the footwear include Sienna Miller, Kendall Jenner, and Dakota Johnson.

The loafers are popular with men, too. From fashion editor Simone Marchetti…

…to Tom Hiddleston in a recent Gucci photo shoot, everyone seems to want in on this trend.

So, what do you think? Would you wear these shoes? Let us know in the comments!

Personally, my feet are sweating just looking at them.

Science And Art Blend Together Perfectly With These Blinged Out Bugs. Cool, But Gross.

Alright folks, it’s time for a quick biology lesson: caddisflies are a common water-dwelling insect with similarities to the moth and butterfly. Likewise, the caddisfly will create cocoons while in their larvae stage in order to protect their soft, growing bodies. They typically use whatever is lying around them in the water to build their shelter with, using their saliva as the glue. Yay. Most of us would hear this information, shrug, and go about our day. But for artist Hubert Duprat, he found inspiration.

This is what a normal caddisfly cocoon looks like. Not particularly stellar.

Duprat gave the future flies a makeover by providing them with some blingier building supplies.

The result is this stunning blend of biology and artwork.

The larvae use their saliva to connect the gold, pearl and other gems to create their nest just as they would with more common items.

Now that’s living in luxury!

Duprat views his work as collaboration with the insects.

In 2011, he told The Independent, “It’s their work as much as mine.”

Here’s a video of Duprat discussing his buggy beauties:

The 25 Most Important Style Lessons We Learned From The Disney Channel

That outfit is SO Raven.

1. If people don’t recognize your star power, wear it on your chest.

Pair with a massive leather headband or orange pants to convince people that you definitely dress yourself.

2. Don’t be afraid to mix trends. All of them. At once.

Disney / imdb.com

Who says crop tops, batwing sleeves, sequins, and polka dots don’t go together?

3. Worried you might rip your sweater? Incorporate 1,000 small pieces of yarn into your outfit for a quick fix.

Disney / youtube.com

Make sure they’re multicolored so you can help your friends too.

4. You’ll never be bored when your clothes double as entertainment, like this word search shirt.

Disney / youtube.com

She’s already found “eyesore” and “hot mess.”

5. If you’re feeling chilly but still want to look chic, try layering a dust ruffle over your cardigan.

Disney / youtube.com

Plus you’ll save money by letting your interior designer double as you stylist.

6. There’s no such thing as too much pink.

Disney / youtube.com

Or too much faux fur.

7. Seriously.

Disney / fanforum.com

You can squeeze in more pink by using your blush as foundation.

8. FOR REAL.

Disney / fanpop.com

If you don’t look like the lovechild of Pepto Bismol and Barbie why are you even wearing clothes?

9. You can double the size of your head with perfectly placed pigtails.

Disney / youtube.com

No one will ever see the faces of the unimportant plebs behind you again.

10. Or go the mad scientist route with four pigtails.

The haggard goth/researcher look is so on-trend right now.

11. Chest-claces are all the rage!

Disney / imdb.com

Why should your neck have all the fun? Your boobs need accessories too!

12. Basically, any time you’re out of ideas, take what’s on your neck and put it somewhere else.

13. If you find a scrap of fabric on the ground, stitch it into your outfit. Immediately.

And be sure to color coordinate with your boo.

14. Redefine the meaning of street style by wearing a graffitied wall on your torso.

Class it up with a red faux fur collar for the ultimate high art/low art look.

15. Argyle is so dull. Why not spice things up with GIANT ARGYLE?

Disney / imdb.com

Or, if you’re a laid-back type trying to look more extreme, go with fiery flowers on a Hawaiian shirt.

16. Can’t decide between crimps or curls? Do both.

And throw in a bead or two because why the fuck not?

17. If you’re the forgetful type, use your clothes as a notepad for your grocery lists.

Disney / fanpop.com

If you run out of room in your shopping cart, use your hat to store herbs.

18. Hats are always a good idea. Try blinding people with a sparkly hat.

Disney / imgkid.com

That way people will have to rely on their sense of touch to feel how fabulous your velour jumpsuit is!

19. Or reminding them of their childhood with a lego-esque knitted beanie.

Now with air holes, so your skull can finally breathe!

20. If you’re feeling lackluster in your headgear, add a delicate scarf for a touch of whimsy.

21. Let your hair be your personal cheerleader by adding pompoms to your spider leg braids.

22. Display your love of animals by cutting up a pillow case and hanging it off your shoulders.

Disney / youtube.com

Nothing says “majestically feminine” like a pink horse.

23. Just remember, if people can still see…

24. … or hear after catching a glimpse of your outfit…

Disney / imdb.com

25. … you’re doing fashion wrong.
