Trump takes Nevada! by more than 40%

Trump wins big in Nevada! Jubilant Donald gets more than 40% of the caucus vote and tells supporters he could have a nomination sewn up in TWO MONTHS

 Trump (center, flanked by son Eric) delivers his victory speech live on CNN after he secures the Nevada caucuses with a huge majority,   

   https://i0.wp.com/i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/02/24/05/article-3461276-3180482200000578-849_964x400.jpg

    //pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

  •  With five per cent of the vote counted, Trump had a 44.6 per cent share, Rubio 24.6 per cent and Cruz 20.0 per cent
  •  Ballot paper shortages, IDs going unchecked and double voting among claims of voter chaos across Nevada
  • First state that will indicate candidates’ standing among Hispanic voters – which Trump seems to have clinched  
  • The comfortable win reflects Trump’s seemingly unstoppable success in the race to secure Republican nomination

Although a line that is heavily patronized by celebrities, Marta Marques and Paolo Almeida, are far more interested in the approval of their friends  approval. About half of the models in the show were not professionals but longtime friends of the designers enjoying a catwalk moment.

 Wilfredo Rosado is the designer and says “I took the standards super high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to,”   This ring is about the same size as both Kim Kardashian West’s and Beyoncé’s engagement rings combined. It’s even a couple of points up from Liz Taylor’s famously spectacular 33 carats courtesy of Richard Burton

His royal muse studied law at Oxford, modeled for Vogue and represented her country at the United Nations, Posen said in a statement. He chose to close his fall 2016 collection with Ugandan model Aamito Lagum for that reason.

“Since the inspiration was Elizabeth of Toro it made sense to have a casting reflecting this,” Posen said. “Their presence and the diversity of the casting complimented the collection and made it more striking.”

“Within this global environment – diversity is very important and it is something that has always been equally important to me as well as a key component of my collections whether it is shapes, sizes or skin color,” said Posen.

Posen, who launched his self-titled collections in 2001, posted several photos of black models on Instagram as part of his “mood boards”
40 out of the 46 models on the runway were people of color, and this was noticeable and a statement because it happens so rarely.

What is your proper bra size? Chosing the correct bra for your type

“All Breasts are not created equal. Experts have identified seven different type of breasts” – glamour magazine

There are a lot considerations to determining breast type and size. This will include the  width, length, and placement affecting what your set is like. 

While size plays a part, the width and length of your breasts and the direction they point is, as well as where they’re placed on your chest, is also important.


According to Glmaour magazine, the lingerie fit pros at ThirdLove make a business out of getting women into the right bras and offered to share their diagrams identifying what each breast type looks like (and which bra’s best for them)

Listed are the various types and shapes

1. Round  

If your breasts are a round shape and are equally full on top and bottom, then you’re lucky enough not to need too much support. 



breasts-for-t-shirt-bra  



The type: East West What it is: Your ladies gravitate toward the outside of your torso, pointing outward and leaving some space in the direct center of your chest. What type of bra is best: A T-shirt bra will give you all the shaping you need.

 breasts-for-plunge-bra 



The type: Separated Sisters What it is: Breasts are fuller than East West but still fall out toward the sides of the body. What type of bra is best: A plunge style, which will help pull the breasts up and together.


breasts-full-coverage-bra   

The type: Globe-Trotters What it is: Breasts are very round and equally full on top and bottom. What type of bra is best: Since your pair doesn’t need to be moved much, consider a thin, unlined style that offers a light amount of coverage.

 breasts-for-unlined-bra  


The type: Skinny Minnies What it is: Most likely a small cup size, the breast is longer than wide. What type of bra is best: A plunge is your best bet for helping to center and lift your breasts. Depending on your cup size and desired look, consider a bra with padding on the outer curve  

 thin-breasts-bra-type    
The type: Sisters, Not Twins What it is: Both ladies are not the same size and can be asymmetrical in shape. What type of bra is best: If the size difference is enough to be noticeable, shop for a style with removable inserts, allowing you to remove the padding on the side with your larger breast.


breasts-removeable-pads 

  

 The type: Quintessentials What it is: If there was such a thing as a normal breast, this would be it. The shape is teardrop, belling out slightly at the bottom. What type of bra is best: Pretty much any style will work, so shop based on what you prefer, coverage- and lift-wise.

Mordern Fashion: Elegance or Vulgarism or #Whaarrisdis ? 100 years of Vogue

100 Years Exhibition of Vogue Fashion shows a curious thread


  • How style went out of fashion
  • Introduction of vulgarity and voyeurism
  • Pointless images that leave you asking whaarrisdis? Wey de fashion here naa?

 credit dailymail
Women walk by framed photos at the press preview for 'Vogue 100: A Century of Style' exhibiting the photographs that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916 at National Portrait Gallery
Showing some of the whaa whaa pictures

As the time line indicates, the tone and quality of images shift from style and beauty to  to a modern day cynical interpretation of ‘style’ loaded with nudity and ‘shock therapy’ that leave you asking wharridis (scratching your head) and wondering what fashion magazine you bought

As the years roll the focus comes back to fashion  once again becomes something real, tangible, with the focus being more on style etc….  follow dailymail for the rest the story

As the present gives way to the past, not only do the tone and quality of the Vogue pictures change, with digital reverting to film and old-fashioned lighting replacing Photoshop, so do style and beauty take the centre stage, casting out modern-day cynicism and arrogance
