1. Wonderful news: you can now enter a talent show such as Australian Idol, secure in the knowledge that a rude judge won’t have a go at your ‘tuckshop lady’ arms (are you listening Dicko?). Introducing:  Arm Spanx.

That’s right, your arms can now join the Spanx party and rock out with your belly, your thighs and your hips. UK department store Marks & Spencer have come up with the “Flatter Me Armwear” range so that everyone can wave goodbye to their cover-up cardigans. Without anything, you know, wobbling. Sigh.

This from the Daily Mail:

Spanx 380x568 Fluff: Introducing Spanx. For your arms.

Arm spanx. Oh yes.

Available as a body or a crop top – and following on from the Flatter Me bra and knicker – Flatter Me Armwear is a long- or three-quarter-sleeved solution to strappy party dresses.

Worn beneath the outfit but over the bra, the light-control fabric promises to gently sculpt arms and ‘give a smooth and firm silhouette while the intricate lace adds a touch of glamour’.

5. Would you wear it? Anne Hathaway turned up at the world premiere of Les Miserables wearing a Givenchy gown that PEOPLE magazine called “debatable”. We’re calling for volunteers to lead the teams for the Affirmative and the Negative. What do you think?
