Trend Alert: Are Lollipop Heads Big On Style?
August 9, 2005
Bigger has meant better for a while now when it comes to accessories, but the oversized sunglasses, bangles, and necklaces of late have become larger than life trends thanks to shrinking starlets like Mary-Kate Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, and Nicole Richie. Dubbed â€œLollipop Headsâ€ by the press due to increasingly stick-thin bodies and normal-sized noggins that leave them looking like Blow Pops, these recently-waifed ladies have been simultaneously starting trends and turning stomachs with their spindly frames and super-sized style. Though emaciation has never been sexy, itâ€™s little wonder that the large sunglasses, flowing gypsy skirts, and layer-upon-layer Boho look credited to these celebs has become so popular; itâ€™s fashionable and forgiving no matter what your figure flaws might be. Let’s only hope that ladies who love the look of the Lollipop Heads wonâ€™t be similarly inspired by their eating habits.
