Last night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas brought out a throng of female stars dressed in ensembles that screamed anything but demure. While we fawned over Jennifer Morrison’s sheer black Kristian Aadnevik gown and scratched our head over the checked and crochet Balmain jumpsuit Miley Cyrus choose to wear, we couldn’t help but be drawn to the confections worn by Taylor Swift, Emmy Rossum and Jennifer Lopez, all sporting looks by designer Zuhair Murad. See the gorgeous dresses for yourself below.

At first glance, an artichoke can look a bit daunting to a new user of the green vegetable. There are a variety of great ways to make the most of this edible flower that range from employing the whole plant or just the heart. The New York Times recently spotlighted simple ways to enjoy artichokes ranging from raw, to stuffed with crab, to mixed with scallions and soy sauce. We personally favor the fennel and parmesan version, where these ingredients are combined with artichoke hearts, lemon zest, lemon juice and olive oil. Seasoned with salt and pepper, this version is perfect for the artichoke novice. To see all the variations on using this vegetable, visit The New York Times.
It is no wonder that actresses Michelle Williams, Jessica Biel and Zoë Saldana all flock to wear RGB nail polish on their fingers.

Hot on the heels of the spectacular opening weekend for Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Great Gatsby, we got to wondering about the second time success for the duo. After two popular collaborations on literary classics (Romeo & Juliet being the first), it seems that the director and actor should continue their perfect movie match-up on other films. Luhrmann and DiCaprio would be in great company, as Popsugar put together a list of famed directors and their actor muses such as Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, who have worked together on eight films starting with 1990’s Edward Scissorhands. Other successful film collaborators include Steven Soderbergh and Matt Damon, who have paired up on seven films (including the Ocean’s Trilogy); Wes Anderson and Bill Murray’s seven films that include Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums; and Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson, whose five films include Pulp Fiction and last year’s Oscar-winning Django Unchained. To see more successful director and actor film pairings, visit PopSugar.
Besides being an Oscar-winning actress, style icon and renowned humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn was a resident of Rome. The beloved big screen star lived in the famed city, where she shot her award winning role in Roman Holiday, for twenty years, during which time photographers captured candid images of Hepburn in her standard chic ensembles. Now, her son Luca Dotti, writer and producer Ludovica Damiani, and fashion director and stylist Sciascia Gambaccini have released the book Audrey in Rome unveiling nearly 200 photos of the late Hepburn, many of which have never been viewed by the public before. The coffee table book shows, among other things, the actress walking her Yorkie, Mr. Famous, having breakfast in Piazza Navona and set photographs from the movies she made while residing in the Italian capital. For those looking to glimpse into the private life of Hepburn, Audrey in Rome serves just that purpose. Visit Amazon for more.
