Elvis fanatics, rejoice. The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s famous onyx coif, which was shaved off when he joined the Army in 1958, will be auctioned in Chicago on October 18. Where one could tastefully display such a keepsake is a mystery to us, but happy bidding nonetheless. [Digital Spy]

After two back-to-back Miss Universe wins, Venezuela—where “beauty pageants are a national sport”—is garnering a lot of attention. The country’s success doesn’t simply stem from something in the water, as it turns out. “God created these beautiful women—but he also created plastic surgeons,” says the director of the Miss Venezuela School, a boot camp for would-be contestants.

    you be the judge!
