Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed their first child.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star delivered the couple’s baby girl on Saturday, June 15, 2013, in Los Angeles.
According to E! News, Kim gave birth at Cedars Sinai Hospital, the same place where her sister Kourtney Kardashian delivered her little ones, Penelope and Mason.
It wasn’t clear if Kanye was in Los Angeles prior to the birth, given that he didn’t attend his Yeezus listening party last night, but according to sources he was right by Kim’s side during the delivery.
Kim was due to deliver the baby in July, but gave birth five weeks early. However, Kim delivered the baby girl naturally and both mother and baby are happy and healthy !
According to E! News, the baby girl weighed in at “under five pounds” and is definitely a Kardashian Mini Me: “She has dark hair. She looks just like Kim.”
The proud parents haven’t revealed the baby’s name just yet, but Kim has already told friends and family in the weeks leading up to the birth that the name “will start with a K.” She and Kanye also talked about using his late mom’s name, Donda, as the baby’s middle name.
When the new mom found out their baby’s gender, she said on the season premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, “Who doesn’t want a girl? They’re the best. And I know that’s what Kanye has always wanted, he wanted a little girl.”
Let’s wish all the best to both of them and their little newborn girl !
When is the best season to shop evening gowns on sale?
You can wait for the end of season sales or be on the lookout for special deals throughout the season. If you opt for a more classic evening gown and not last season’s hot colour, nobody will know you got it on sale.
Start your research online. There are many shops that specialise on discount evening gowns and many others that offer regular discounts.
Issues to think before deciding how much to spent.
Do you think that the best evening gowns need a big budget ? Think again, because nowadays there are so many low budget options for elegant evening gowns that there is really no point in spending a lot. In order to get a good bargain you need to do your research. Here is what you should get into consideration before you start:
Event. What is the type of event that you want to wear your evening gown on. Is it a party, prom, wedding, the Oscars, or any other formal event? How many people will attend? How much do you want to be the center of attention? Do you want to be comfortable enough to dance?
Season. Is it summer, winter, or the in-between season ? Will you need an overcoat ?
Place. Are you going to be indoors or outdoors, at the beach or in a ballroom ? These are serious issues to think before heading to buy the dress, and shoes for that matter.
Dress. Is there any other event that you might be able to wear that dress? Think if you would like to invest in a classic elegant gown to wear in numerous occasions or adopt the latest fashion trend to attract all the attention.

The two best friends met again in New York yesterday for the Stella McCartney S/S 2014 resort collection
As the shows for spring summer 2014 continue, the queen of pop Madonna appeared next to her friend Stella McCartney after the show.
Madonna’s styling was interesting but not as provocative as it has been in the past. She was wearing a black outfit with a white embellished colar and black coat as the weather was rainy. Giant black sunglasses completed the look.
The crowd was packed under the tends in Patchin Place, a tiny cobblestone alley in the West Village that had been fitted with risers for the models and a hot pink replica of McCartney’s late mother’s 1970 Morris Mini, complete with a record player in the back.
Stella McCartney was wearing a pale ping satin dress with red embroidery, very much different than her friend and surely in a more summer look ! Her eyes looked a bit tired, no wonder since she was preparing the collection. She should have followed Madonna’s example and wear some sunglasses herself.
After swilling a martini with McCartney while the other guests casually stalked her, Madonna went over and futzed with the Mini’s sound system. It was unclear whether she actually managed to change the song, but suddenly Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” came on and Frankie Rayder, Liv Tyler, and Stella McCartney all shouted along.
This friendship has a long history and despite any differences in style, as you can see in the photo, the two ladies always support each other in their business and various other ventures !
Some of us are blessed with intelligence, some with beauty, and some with talent. The extremely blessed get copious amounts of all three. Oregon high school senior Rachel Proteau is one of the lucky ones that received some of those qualities in abundance. The six-foot, one-inch senior was scouted when she was fourteen, by a modeling agency, which then, three years later, led her to a three week stint in Manhattan, where she modeled and did some trial shoots, hoping to get her name out in the Big Apple, one of the several mecca-type locations of fashion.
While it sounds like a promising start to a career in the fashion industry, Proteau has also been carefully cultivating another impressive career. Proteau currently holds the record for the best high jump in 2013, jumping her own height. Currently, the world record stands at six-foot, ten-and-one-quarter inches, a record that has been in place since 1987.
Considering the career options ahead of her, the senior has said that her experience in Manhattan was too stressful, and that her body was often criticized for being “too tall and muscular.” Mind you, she is only 145 pounds, which at 6’1″, is very slender, and is likely mostly muscle, weighing in as twice as much as fat.
Based on an interview with MaxPreps, it sounds as though Rachel may be destined for Rio de Janiero in under four years:
“You can go out and high jump and forget everything else. It’s definitely an escape. As long as my body lets me, I want to continue high jumping.That was my ultimate dream in high school — to be No. 1 in the U.S. It feels awesome.”
The iconic and beautiful Cindy Crawford recently revealed in an interview, that even she has insecurities about her body. Nearly unbelievable, right? She explains it like this:
“I’m a normal woman. Sometimes I feel pretty good and some days I’m like, oh my God, nothing fits. My new resolution is that by the time I’m fifty, I want to have come to terms with my body, because for me, being five pounds lighter, what it would cost me…I don’t want to be like, oh no, no salad dressing, no wine, no fun.”
Isn’t it refreshing to hear that from a model? Now you may be thinking, she’s Cindy Crawford, how can she say that? She’s gorgeous! But the important thing to take away is that even with long legs, a toned tummy, and age-defying skin, a woman can feel insecure. Those traits do NOT bring happiness. So, even if you do lose that weight, or do wear the most popular makeup, your happiness is not guaranteed.Your happiness is only guaranteed when, as Cindy put it, you come to terms with your body. In some respects, Crawford has. Her beauty mark made her distinct, and enabled other “imperfections” to be valued, such as Kate Bosworth’s heterochromia, or Tyra Banks’s forehead.
By the way, Crawford was valedictorian of her high school graduating class, and a scholarship winning chemical engineering student in college. She is now married with two children, thus being the pure, gorgeous embodiment that in life, nearly everything is more important than external beauty.
Nearly every woman wants Angelina Jolie-esque lips: the kind that look oh so kissable, or like two perfectly plump pillows. Sadly, we weren’t all born with the naturally robust lips that Angelina was. Also sadly, we don’t all have the money Angelina has, or else we could pay to get lips like those. But, barring genetics and finances, there are other tricks to get the best looking lips you can:
- Moisturize. Obviously. The lips don’t have oil glands so they are prone to dryness. Fight this off with a chea butter or vitamin E.
- Protect from the sun. Again, obviously. The lips are also prone to sun damage, so use a lip balm with SPF 15 or higher.
- Stimulate with peptides. Look for balms and lipsticks that list peptides as an ingredient. These stimulate collagen, which we all know leads to plump and fuller looking lips.
- Stimulate with cinnamon or mint. These scents/flavors stimulate blood flow to the lips, causing them to plump up. You may feel a tingle after applying. my favorites are Burt’s Bees and C.O. Bigelow.
- Include retinol. “Retinol” is a key word on cosmetic packaging. Look for it in your lip color– it fights wrinkles.
Lindsay Lohan is in the media again, only this time she did nothing but show up on someone’s t-shirt. Mean Girls co-star Jonathan Bennett– you remember him, he was the smokin’ hot love interest Aaron Samuels– was spotted wearing a shirt with the phrase “GO TO JAIL LINDSAY” on it on Thursday.
After being asked about the shirt, Bennett made it clear he was sporting the slogan ironically:
“I tried on the T-shirt ironically to point out the ridiculousness of the public and media obsession with her,” he explains. “I actually am really happy she’s in rehab and seems to be doing well. She was one of the most talented young actresses I have ever worked with. I just want her to get better. It makes me sad to think about that spark and that brightness that is inside her that’s been covered by her addictions. I’ve had family members and friends go through rehab recently and because they stuck it out, it changed their life and was the best thing for them. I think and pray that this time will be the same for her. “‘m here for her. She’ll be back and she’s gonna be big. Just you watch.”
We hear key words like “anti oxidant” and “restorative” or even “retinol” and know that they are good for us, but rarely know exactly what they are or why they are beneficial to our beauty. Well, with a little research, we’ve picked out the best supplements for you, so that you don’t have to wonder anymore:
- Fern Extract: fern extract is an active ingredient in reducing DNA damage that causes sun spots and wrinkles. It can work in conjunction with sunscreen to protect against sun-damaged skin. With the summer approaching, this supplement is especially beneficial. The fern supplement can be found in supplements such as HelioCare and SunPill, and should be taken daily for a week before spending significant time in the sun.
- Primrose and Black Currant Oil: these two substances contain gamma-linolenic acid, which promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails. Gamma-linolenic acid is hard to find in foods, so supplementing it is easiest. The best sources are primrose and black currant oil.
- Fish Oil: A great source of Omega-3 fatty acids– the good kind of “fatty”! These acids are found in foods like fish and nuts… but if you’re like me and the thought/taste/scent of fish, repulses you, take these supplements instead. I found to take them with food.
- Iron & Vitamin C: an iron deficiency can cause a drop in red blood cells, leading to an anemic-type state. Anemia is known to cause thinning hair. Keep your iron levels high by consuming iron and vitamin C, which aids in iron absorption.
The annual Cannes Film Festival was held in none other than Cannes, France this past week with many stars, relatives of stars, paparazzi, directors, producers, and the like. Somehow, even with all those people around, there was still some underhanded behavior happening, that resulted in a hefty amount of pricey jewelry being stolen.
The exclusive Swiss jewelry house, Chopard, is missing a significant amount of jewelry after it was stolen from Suite Novotel Cannes Centre, a hotel located in the Cannes business district. An American representative for Chopard was entrusted with the jewelry, which was placed in a safe for (ironically) safe keeping. Reports state that not only was the jewelry stolen but the physical safe itself was stolen, obviously containing the precious gems. Employees at the Suite Novotel Cannes Centre are the first being questioned about the stolen safe and jewels.
The Chopard Brand plays a significant role in the Cannes Film Festival. Chopard has sponsored the event for sixteen years, as well as designed the trophy for the award of best film. This year, stars such as Julianne Moore and Cindy Crawford were wearing jewelry, courtesy of Chopard. Chopard however, did release a statement revealing that the stolen jewelry did not include any pieces worn by stars, hopefully deterring any thieves hoping to profit off of jewelry worn by celebrities. Initial reports of the stolen jewelry valued it around $1.4 million, but Chopard insists that that number was inflated by the press.
