Now I like a touch of glam as much as the next girl. I have been known to browse the pages of Marie Claire picking out gorgeous must have items to spend my (imaginary) six figure salary on and adorn my (also imaginary) size six frame. I possess a few pairs of heels, the odd handbag and the latest wow make up product, so it is safe to say fashion and I are not such distant cousins. So how did I miss this one?
Maybe it’s not a fashion thing, maybe it’s aimed at the petrol heads amongst us but increasingly I have been noticing cars with eyelashes. At first I thought, ‘No. Surely not? Did I just see that?’and, inevitably, ‘Why?’ and ‘Do they come with their own waterproof mascara?’
Apart from making me double over in hysterics I cannot seem to grasp why anyone with the slightest hold on reality would want to spend their hard earned cash on some falsies for their headlamps? Car modification is nothing new and I know men have been pimping their rides for years – go faster stripes, alloy wheels, tinted visors, those rubber dangly things that hang off the rear end (what are they for?), the list is endless. So is this all we are left with ladies, eyelashes? Come on, really? Surely we can do better;
- Push up bra’s for your bumpers?
- Veiled Windscreens?
- Crystal encrusted exhausts?
I am all for individuality, but I think we can improve on some plastic strips stuck on the front of a car. We have all seen Chitty fly, there is so much more! What do you think? Are they completely pointless or are they a harmless means of expressing your inner Herbie?
