Rihanna received the Fashion Icon award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday night, but it was her dress that had everyone talking. The 26-year-old stepped out in a barely there, custom Adam Selman gown, covered head-to-toe in more than 230,000 Swarovski crystals… and not much else.
In an interview with Style.com, the singer’s stylist, Mel Ottenberg, opened up about the labor intensive frock. "So many people didn't sleep last night," he admitted. "I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night to 3 p.m. today putting on the finishing touches."
The look was conceived last month while Selman and Ottenberg were dressing Rihanna for the MTV Movie Awards. "We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous," Selman told Style.com. "The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that."
Here's a new take on a time-honored custom.
Terrell Owens, 40, is a married man. The former NFL player turned reality star married Rachel Snider, a postal worker, in a secret courthouse ceremony on Thursday, RadarOnline.com reports.
The couple have done a good job keeping their relationship on the down-low. It’s not known when they met, how long they’ve been dating or when they got engaged. Snider, 33, announced the engagement on Facebook earlier this week.
As for the low-key nuptials, Radar reports that there was just one witness, and the happy couple wore matching blue outfits. This was Owens’ first trip down the aisle, though he has four children with four separate women.
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- 'Good Morning America' co-anchor Robin Roberts publicly came out as gay in a Facebook post on Sunday.
In the Facebook post, Roberts remembers the one-year anniversary of reaching 100 days after her bone marrow transplant.
She thanked her supporters saying, "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious New Year together."
The post is the first time she's made public mention of her girlfriend, Amber Laing, a massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay Area. Roberts' post was confirmed by ABC News spokeswoman Heather Riley.
Yet another white mom stomped onto my site last week, questioning why I write for and about moms of color. Apparently, the word “brown” in my blog title made her feel some kinda ways about my posts, subject matter, and intent, and she questioned why, if “everyone wants to be celebrated and recognized as ‘equal,’” I would “segregate” myself with a blog about skin color.
Um, you really want to make my nostrils flare? Tell me that you “don’t see color.” Or that we’re all the same -- no matter the color, race, income level, background, origin, beliefs. Or that by simply acknowledging and speaking to issues that affect black moms specifically, I’m “segregating” myself.
(Women’s Health) - The Garcinia Cambogia is the latest buzz in the “battle of the bulge”. With millions of people praising this so called “miracle pill” that you take as a supplement to lose weight, it has been getting a lot of attention since it was recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show. Surprisingly, many people who struggle daily with their weight have yet to hear about this powerful option. Those that have heard of the Garcinia Cambogia diet are confused about what it is, how to use it and how to avoid falling for ineffective formulas and downright scams.
According to Dr Chen (The guest host on the popular Dr Oz show) Garcinia Cambogia works in more than one way, “The first way is it goes in and causes the body to burn glucose, or sugar, and burn fat, mainly in the liver…The second way, the most important way, is it slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. So when you don’t have sugar building up in the blood stream, you don’t have fat building up because sugar turns to fat…When the two are combined together, you get this synergistic effect that basically burns and blocks and stops fat, but it also is natural and safe.”

Well, we here at WomensHealth were a little skeptical of this Garcinia Cambogia. Even after pouring though mountains of research. While I had an educated opinion, I still had no personal proof that the Garcinia Cambogia option was worth the time. So, with my editors blessing, I decided to go out and put the product to the test myself. What better way to find out the truth that to conduct my own study?
To get started, I volunteered to be the guinea pig. I applied online for 5 bottles of Original Garcinia Cambogia. Original Garcinia Cambogia is one of the most credible and trustworthy diet supplement suppliers on the market. It included a 100% Money Back Gurantee of the product and it did not try to fool me into agreeing to additional hidden offers. Another reason why I chose Original Garcinia Cambogia is because it is the most concentrated and purest Garcinia Cambogia on the market. This would give me the most accurate results for my test.

Putting the Original Garcinia Cambogia to the Test
Original Garcinia Cambogia arrived within 4 days of having placed my order online.
The bottles I received held a month’s worth of pills which worked out perfect as I was to follow the supplement routine for 9 weeks time and document my progress throughout
My 9 Week Test: Original Garcinia Cambogia
After one week on the diet I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I wasn’t even hungry, an apparent side effect of the Original Garcinia Cambogia which curbs the appetite.
I honestly felt fantastic.
And I didn’t even change anything about my daily routine. On day 7 I got on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. I had lost 5 lbs. But I still wasn’t convinced as they say you lose a lot of water at the beginning of any diet. I wanted to wait and see the results in the upcoming weeks. But it sure was looking up! I now weighed under 140 lbs for the first time in years!
After three weeks, I started the week off with even more energy and was actually sleeping more soundly than before. I was no longer waking up during the night and tossing and turning because my body was actually able to relax (this is a result of getting rid of the toxins I think). Plus I still managed to lose another 7 lbs, putting me at an unbelievable 12 lbs of weight loss, in just 3 weeks.
I must admit that I’m starting to believe that this diet is more than just a gimmick.
After 4 weeks all my doubts and skepticism had absolutely vanished! I am down, 2 full dress sizes, after losing another 9 lbs. And I still have a ton of energy. Quite often, around the third week of other diets, you tend to run out of steam. But with the Original Garcinia Cambogia my energy levels don’t dip, but remain steady throughout the day. I no longer need that cat nap around 3pm in the afternoon! And I am even noticing that my stomach is digesting food so much better. No bloating or embarrassing gas after I eat!
After the Ninth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 37 lbs of fat since starting the Original Garcinia Cambogia diet! Actually everyone at WomensHealth is kicking themselves for not having volunteered to be the guinea pig. Using the Original Garcinia Cambogia in the last five weeks I lost 16 more lbs. To be honest I really don’t have much more than that left to lose, I’ve never looked sexier! And I am definitely going to continue taking the Original Garcinia Cambogia afterwards because it has so many antioxidants and vitamins that makes my skin look unbelievable. It even worked better than Green Coffee!
“I couldn’t be any happier with the results.
I Lost 37 lbs body fat in 9 Weeks, No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise”

The breathtaking model on your magazine cover: Of course she's not that thin and unblemished. That reality show you never miss? You're shocked — shocked that its real-life drama isn't 100 percent unscripted. And that diva who may or may not have mouthed the words to the national anthem to her own prerecorded voice? Yeah, well, so what? It was a big moment, and she wanted to sound her best.
The old practice of hocking personal belongings to get cash fast — a.k.a. pawning — is on the uptick, no doubt due to the hot reality show Pawn Stars, which documents the doings at a Las Vegas shop. But that series usually focuses on rare finds that are sold for a flat fee, not pawned. The real heart of pawning is short-term "safety net" loans for more ordinary items. Here's how it usually works (no matter what The Old Man might do on TV): You bring in your item, the pawnbroker makes an offer, and then — after some negotiation — he gives you cash.
