The Bizarre Bling countdown

From merely odd to truly bizarre.


5) Bling for your pocket
Crystals on your phone, your PDA and your iPod. Incidentally, I don’t get goth bling at all. Bling is about the flashy shiny-shiny ka-ching life. Goth is about cynicism and existential angst… this is like “I shine therefore why am I?”


4) Bling for your sole
Designed for Reebok by Manish Arora ‘Fish Fry' shoes cost between Rs 6,000 to Rs 20,000. There are 12 designs made of leather, suede and specialized mettalic fabric. Welcome to the world of couture sneakers.


3) Bling for your bath
Diamante Duck. To add a splash of shine to your bathtime.


2) Bling for your game
The Xbox 360 just got glitzy. Used as a secret weapon: opponents get distracted by the console and ignore the screen.



1) Bling for your thirst
Bling H20, the ultimate in designer bottled water… To quote, “Limited edition, corked, 750 ml, recyclable frosted glass bottles, exquisitely handcrafted with Swarovski Crystals”. My only question being WHY??

Bling water takes the cake, and the bling x box is like 'why dude?'
