Silly Bandz Page 1
The Golden Globes may have dominated this week, but Oscar de la Renta, Anna Wintour and Justin Bieber also made some headlines. Plus, the model who hit that lady is getting a reality show and the Bill Cunningham documentary looks incredible.
In case you didn’t know, Silly Bandz are totally over. But that hasn’t stopped the shameless Kardashians from trying to cash in on the rapidly fading trend. To which we say: Um, what?
Future economists, heed this lesson of supply and demand: Silly Bandz, which were the king of trends just a few months ago, are now seriously and totally out. And it’s all because the market has been overloaded with them since they started getting absurdly popular.
We’d heard these things called Silly Bandz were all the rage, but until we stumbled upon US Magazine’s blurb on the growing craze of Silly Bandz among celebrities like alpha mom Sarah Jessica Parker — who wore a lime green one in the shape of who-knows-what — we had no idea how big they really were. And we’re all familiar with the domino effect that stems from a little bit of subliminal trend endorsements by celebrity moms.
