How Anne Takes her Coffee

According to last week's coffee poll, we either thought Anne Slowey was terribly high -maintenance (a large extra hot soy latté with an extra shot, two pumps of vanilla and two pumps of hazelnut syrup) or Faux French (Café au lait). Turns out we all would have failed in our mission to bring her the perfect cup of joe. Ms S. drinks only iced lattés, with a small straw.

According to Lesley M. M. Blum in today's Huffington Post, straws cause wrinkles! Here's some advice for Elle's fashion news director:

Throw away the drinking straw.

We all know that if you want to send your looks straight to hell, you'll take up smoking. All of the chemical atrocities aside, even the sucking gesture your mouth makes help to cleave those beastly lines into your upper lip.

Well, sucking on a drinking straw also promotes those wrinkles around your mouth. Not to mention that it looks jejune, and not in a charming way.

But how else are we supposed to drink iced lattes?
