The fashion crowd has been obsessed with cats for the better part of a year, from Grace Coddington's kitty-adorned Balenciaga bag collection to Choupette Lagerfeld to United Bamboo's cat calendar, but at long last, it looks like the trend may have jumped the shark.
Thanks to "Tailly"--which the Daily News describes as "a furry faux tail attached to a belt, designed to react to your emotions just like a real tail would"--human beings can tap into their inner feline. It was designed by Japanese inventor Shota Ishiwatari, whose wiggling kitten ears were such a success that customers demanded a matching tail to go with them. Unfortunately the time has lapsed on his Kickstarter page to get the project funded, but that doesn't make this thing any less ogle-able.

There’s a particular episode of 30 Rock (“Black Light Attack!”, for all the fellow 30 Rock historians out there) in which Jane Krakowski’s youth-obsessed character Jenna goes on a Gossip Girl audition. She thinks it’s for the role of an Upper East Side high schooler, but as she learns in the middle of the tryout, it’s for that of her mother instead. While Tina Fey’s brilliant Liz Lemon later tries to talk Jenna off the cliff, she says, “You can try to fight getting older. You can be like Madonna, and cling to youth with your Gollum arms. Or you can be like Meryl Streep and embrace your age with elegance.”
