These Jeans Are Also a Picnic Table

Picnicking's a quaint, lovely afternoon activity for people who toss their head back when they laugh and keep bottles of rosé perma-chilling in their fridge between wheels of exotic $20 cheeses. (See: romantic comedy stars, Gwyneth Paltrow.)

But it's also a surefire way to smear jam or dribble drinks on whatever blanket or towel you're sitting on—a minor, non-glamorous detail that's seemingly insignificant, until you go and invent picnic table jeans, like this Acquacalda company.


pants
I'm pretty sure they're supposed to fall into the high-tech, multi-purpose fashion category (pants that purify the air, glasses that text your friends). Yet they don't make sense to me. I get that they serve as jeans before you sit down and a table right as you sit down. But the second food or drinks spill on that table-pouch-lap-thing, you don't have high-tech "Picnic Jeans!" anymore. You just have a dirty napkin sewn in between your pant legs.

That's not exactly ideal for running errands, so I'd imagine the multi-functional excitment ends there. And I'm not even gonna address the, uh, interesting way they look. But maybe I'm just biased since my tolerance for multi-purpose fashion starts and ends with reversible string bikinis. I don't know. Would you wear them?

Stupid, the jeans don't turn into a picnic table you do. Who wants to sit like that and start placing things in their lap thereby restricting movement. when you can just set things next to you in a pinch.

    The 10 beauty products every model has in her medicine cabinet

    Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
