Help Laura!

My colleague Laura Vozzella wants to make you famous. Here's Laura.

I'm not writing about a bar or a nightclub, but about an unusual fashion accessory that some people wear to bars and night clubs, so it kinda, sorta fits on a nightlife blog. At least I’ve convinced Sam as much.

The accessory in question is a  new type of oversized contact lens that makes the eyes look larger. They’re like conventional tinted contacts, but the tinted part is larger than usual, extending over the whites of the eyes ...

Lady Gaga wears them, so you know it’s a good idea.

Doctors are concerned that the contacts, ordered from overseas because they don’t have FDA approval, might damage the eyes.

Anybody out there wearing them and want to be interviewed? If so, please e-mail me at laura.vozzella@baltsun.com.

Not a fan of bigger-than-normal eye. But I like the whispering eye

if you know someone guilty of this travesty you are thus guilty by association...

Speaking of which- Sam/Laura can we get a post on chicks caught with boottie-pop pants? I would supply a link but scared of what google may come up with.

Slate did a story on these contacts a while back and called the NY Time story bogus.

I, personally, just wear regular lenses so I can see without looking like a dork in glasses.

This one should be safe enough, I mean... it's The Wall Street Journal:

Get some comped samples. We can all agree upon a venue to try them out. Could be scary!

I do I know this isn't some sort of sting, devised to get a hold of my Chinese oversized contact dealer? Not this time, Woodward!

That look is SO hot.

Just in time for Otakon, too. Shi Shi!
