Kim Kardashian Lounges in a Bikini Just Five Days Before Giving Birth

 

Found at popsugar.com

Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, but just five days before delivering her first child, she was lounging poolside. Kim showed off her pregnant stomach in a skimpy bikini while hanging out at a spa in LA with friends, including Robin Antin and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli. The ladies snacked on a fruit and cheese plate during their three-and-a-half-hour stay, and while Robin and Joyce drank cocktails, Kim sipped on pink lemonade. The sunny afternoon wasn’t the first timeKim flaunted her baby bump in a bikini during her pregnancy, since we also saw her in a two-piece during her family getaway to Greece back in April.

Kim and her boyfriend, Kanye West, may have welcomed their daughter a little earlier than her expected July arrival, but Kim seems to be enjoying motherhood already. She sent an email to Ryan Seacrest proclaiming that “It’s so crazy!” and her sister Khloé shared that both “mommy and baby are healthy & resting.” Kim has yet to reveal the baby’s name, though sources say that she and Kanye are close to picking a moniker for their little one.

Canadian gender-bending musician Peaches and her Peachettes will headline the main stage at this year’s Castro Street Fair.

The outdoor festival is celebrating its 40th year Sunday, October 6. The late gay Supervisor Harvey Milk, who won election in 1977 as the city’s first out elected politician, launched the fair in 1974 as a way to promote the businesses in the emerging gay neighborhood where he owned a camera store.

According to the event’s organizers, Peaches’ performance will include a never-before-seen tribute to disco legend Sylvester, who performed at the second annual Castro Street Fair in 1975. The Castro resident died of AIDS complications in 1988 at the age of 41.

“I am so proud to be part of Castro Street Fair, especially because it was started by the fearless Harvey Milk,” stated Peaches in a news release the fair organizers issued Tuesday, August 20. “This year, being the 40th anniversary, I will help honor another fearless incredible San Fran LGBT legend, Sylvester. I can’t wait to be a part of this! Yes!!!!”

Born Merrill Beth Nisker, the 46-year-old Peaches lives in Berlin, according to her Wikipedia entry. The Peachettes are a group of local performers produced by Midnight Mass choreographer Rory Davis, according to the press release.

“The Castro Street Fair is beyond thrilled to have Peaches as part of our Ruby Anniversary celebration,” stated George Ridgely, the fair’s executive director. “She will undoubtedly deliver a show-stopping performance.”

Peaches released her first full-length album The Teaches of Peaches in 2000, and her electronic pop music has been featured in several movies, including Mean Girls and Lost in Translation . Last year saw the premiere of the performer’s own rock opera film, Peaches Does Herself.

Fair organizers are choosing this year’s entertainment line-up with an eye toward paying homage to the four decades of music and entertainment “that has been the fabric of the Castro Street Fair since its inception.”

“We want to honor every decade and program the stages so you get a feel of each decade of the event,” Ridgely told Castro merchants during their monthly meeting in early August. “Ninety-nine percent of the performers are really local.”

A full line-up of performers and set times will be published on the Castro Street Fair website (http://www.castrostreetfair.org) in the weeks prior to the event.

Proceeds from the fair, including gate donations, will be shared with 22 local community groups and organizations. The suggested gate donation is $4.

This year’s fair will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the gay Castro district.

The most extraordinary fashion

High Line Back-To-School Teen Fashion Show

 

New York, NY (45ive News) August 22, 2013

Fashion Week starts early on the High Line. New York City’s elevated railway-turned-park—described as “the most extraordinary fashion promenade you can imagine” by Bill Cunningham of The New York Times—is getting ready to host its first official runway event, which will be free and open to the public.

As part of its Community Engagement initiative to serve the needs and interests of New Yorkers living and working near the High Line, Friends of the High Line will present the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show, on Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 PM within the Chelsea Market Passage, the semi-enclosed passageway on the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets. The show will be free, and open to visitors of all ages. RSVP will not be required, but seating will be limited.

Curated by Friends of the High Line and 13 local teens, with production assistance and artistic direction from Harlem’s Fashion Row and Caravan Stylist Studio, the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show will feature professional models wearing fresh fall fashions for young adults, designed and styled by local teens in collaboration with emerging and established American fashion designers, including Boy Meets GirlHuminskaJunk Food ClothingLaQuan SmithTabii Just, and Synderela, and complemented by shoes and accessories selected by the teens from HSN.com and Michelle Vale.

The runway fashion show was created by the teens as part of a two-month-long workshop series organized by Friends of the High Line, with leading support from the Ford Foundation. Over July and August, the teens attended information sessions in the studios of fashion designer and Project Runway Season 9 designer Kim Goldson, clothing stylists from HSN.com, make-up artists from Pop Beauty Cosmetics, and hair stylists from Salon Grafix. The series culminated with studio apprenticeships in which teens paired off with the individual designers to create new looks for the High Line Back-to-School Teen Runway Show.

Part of Friends of the High Line’s ongoing Community Engagement program, the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show is a new initiative that directly responds to a neighborhood survey conducted by the non-profit organization in the spring and summer of 2011. During the survey, which was made possible with support from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, Friends of the High Line surveyed more than 800 residents living in the Robert Fulton Houses and Chelsea-Elliott Houses—two New York City Housing Authority complexes closest to the High Line—to identify programs local residents would like to attend at the park. The survey results showed interest from many in job training and skill-building opportunities for local teens, as well as public programs and activities involving fashion on the High Line. High Line Fashion is one of several teen programs presented by Friends of the High Line, including opportunities in youth education, green careers, and the arts.

“The High Line belongs to all New Yorkers, and Friends of the High Line is committed to creating programs that activate public space in response to the interests of local residents. High Line Fashion is an example of this,” said Robert Hammond, Co-Founder, Friends of the High Line.

“Local residents expressed an interest in fashion, and we are thrilled that the High Line can serve as a platform for teens to explore their voice, exhibit their creativity, and express themselves through fashion—a vital New York City industry that can still feel out of reach for many, especially people of color,” said Erycka Montoya Pérez, Community Engagement Manager, Friends of the High Line.

“The High Line Back-to-School Fashion Show program is an experience of a lifetime. I got an opportunity to meet designers and people who have the same interests as I do. I enjoy working hands-on with designers such as LaQuan Smith and designing an outfit for the fashion show. I feel like this is an open door to many different opportunities in the fashion industry,” said Amber Nuñez, one of the High Line Fashion participants.

“There are so many valuable lessons I learned while building Boy Meets Girl®, that I wanted to create a positive and educational experience for these students who might otherwise not have the resources to break into the fashion world on their own, ” said Stacy Igel, Boy Meets Girl®.

“We are thrilled to participate in this show, which features Junk Food Clothing as it is seen through the eyes of these talented teens. Junk Food has always been a huge supporter of community efforts and causes. We were drawn to the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show because it gives us an opportunity to pay tribute to our inspiration—young, aspiring designers who have their finger on the creative pulse of our city. What an exciting way for us to present our brand! During the mentorship, we learned as much from them as they hopefully learned from us!” said Andrei Najjar, Vice President of Marketing, Junk Food Clothing.

“I believe that dreams can come true and this creative mentoring workshop is a window for teens to see the industry in action, and participate in a show from start to finish, and I feel honored to be a part of it!” said Janice of HUMINSKA.

“We are thrilled to be participating in the High Line project. It is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the local community by helping students make steps towards achieving their dreams. The High Line is a place I visit for inspiration and tranquility often. It’s very in line with our brand’s mission of Made in New York with their current offering of local food and product purveyors,” said Michelle Vale, Creative Director/Owner, Michelle Vale Inc.

“HSN is honored to have the opportunity to work with Friends of the High Line in an effort to foster the growth of the teens in the community. Just as HSN is known for developing new brands and talent, we think it’s important to nurture the younger generation as they grow into adulthood and determine their career paths. We look forward to seeing the students’ work come to fruition and know the show will be a great success,” said Anne Martin-Vachon, Chief Merchandising Officer, HSN.

The third annual Relief on the Runway event is proud to be supporting ICNA Women’s Shelter. ICNA Women’s Shelter, a sub-division of the Islamic Circle of North America, is a nationally-recognized, non-profit organization that has been serving both Muslim and people of other faiths since 1967. Their goal is to assist and empower under-privileged women and their families in the New York City area through sustainable social service programs.

Event Partners and Sponsors include: Nahda Designs, Biz Promoters, 3V Creative,EngieStyle, ICNA, Azizah Magazine, Islamic Design House, iStyle.Modesty, and Yellow Sky Agency PR.

As Suraya Mahumed, the founder of Relief on the Runway and Creative Director of Nahda Designs states, “Our ultimate goal with Relief on the Runway is to build bridges through fashion. We’re more than East meets West. Relief on the Runway is a platform that uses fashion as bridge between Muslim designers and designers of all faiths and cultures, their consumers and the mainstream fashion industry. Fashion celebrates beauty and is a universal language.” These fashions can be worn in various cultures and countries where demure dress at formal affairs and professional functions is preferred. The designers involved in Relief on the Runway believe that women in the global eye should be able to rely on their designer to represent their heritage, country and business interests in cross cultural settings.

The timeless silhouettes being shown this year can be incorporated into mainstream US fashion wardrobes and are also emblematic of the increasingly popular Modest Fashion industry. Modest Fashion is the fastest-growing apparel market around the world, increasing exponentially every year, and is valued at over $100 billion annually.

As a key beauty connoisseur in the industry, Lewis has been featured in The New York Times, W and Elle magazines, the Today Show, CNN, CNBC and more.

Founded in 1997, Lewis, president of Wendy Lewis & Co. Ltd., Global Aesthetics Consultancy, has been recognized as an international insider of aging, skincare, beauty and cosmetic surgery. Also the author of 11 books on all things beauty, Lewis is devoted to disclosing the latest beauty trends.

Along with her beauty team, Lewis scours the counters, clinics and isles to uncover upcoming commodities and crazes. In this FTS episode, Lewis calls Beauty in the Bag a ‘happy accident.’ Established five years ago as a hobby with her daughter, the daring beauty site has blossomed into the go-to spot for beauty trends, skincare and cosmetic news, reviews and advice. The team also hosts weekly Twitter chats and beauty group profiles.

During the FTS interview, Lewis blurbs the biggest beauty trend faux pas, and shares smart makeup decisions that will leave the face looking beautiful, naturally. Lewis lists hair, skincare and makeup do’s and don’ts, and tells how to find that seamless look. “I think it’s less about wearing too much [makeup],” Lewis explains the podcast. “Most women wear too little or the wrong makeup… A little color and camouflage does wonders for all of us.”

This beauty trends professional makes consultations exceedingly accessible and flexible, offering in-person one-on-one or group meetings in Palm Beach, London and New York, as well as via Skype and phone. She said her biggest tip is to do everything in moderation. “Or else you’ll look very sorted,” she said. “I like natural quality. It’s much better to go in baby steps.”

In this lively interview, Lewis shares how to determine if cosmetic surgery is the right choice, how to get in touch with the top professionals in the industry, and how to find that inner confidence and glow women crave.

Diamonds in Fashion

It would be a better world if folk singers synonymous with human rights activism, like Joan Baez, were able to fade into irrelevance. If we could leave Baez’s first Sydney concert since 1985 thrilled that we had heard that iconic vibrato, seen that radiant smile, heard her homage to past lover Bob Dylan on Diamonds and Rust, enthralled by her stories of Martin Luther King (“one of my life’s great blessings”) – but also feeling her protest songs had become museum pieces, plumped by nostalgia yet sapped of meaning.

And it’s true that sitting comfortably in the Concert Hall, clutching the stubs of our pricey tickets, nodding along demurely to that great hymn of egalitarianism, There But For Fortune (go you or I) does feel faintly phoney. For me, especially, with my complimentary reviewer’s ticket.

It’s also true that Baez, who’s been performing for over half a century, delivers songs like Blowin’ In The Wind, with a charitable air, seemingly more to allay anxieties they may not make the set list than with any hope people may still want to ponder Dylan’s questions.
