This past weekend 116 contestants gathered in the remote town Odros City in China's Inner Mongolia district for the annual Miss World Pageant.
Representatives from countries around the world, including South Sudan, Guatemala, The Netherlands and the U.S., formed a kind of United Nations summit on bathing suits and ball gowns.
So it stands to reason, when China's Wenxia Yu was crowned as the winner on Saturday, not everyone was in agreement.
"I was not surprised at all to see that the winner of the pageant was Miss China given that it was held in a Chinese city with Chinese hosts and a huge group of screaming Chinese fans that erupted into applause every time she was mentioned," one commenter wrote on a Huffington Post article announcing the winner. He also added the hashtags: "#Rigged #Fake #SecondPlaceOlympicsRebound"
A Daily Mail reporter also caught the Olympic connection, cheekily congratulating China on its MissRead More »from Miss World Pageant Winner Slammed as Fake. Beauty Contest Gets Political.

You gotta love a man who raves about the transformative power of a pedi.
That's one of the reasons we are all about Newark, New Jersey Mayor, Corey Booker. He recently confessed that he sneaks off in the middle of the night to get his fingers and toes buffed and polished at a local 24-hour salon.
First of all bravo, dude! If only the guys we know would take note and put their gnarly, yellowed, and chipped toenails in the hands of a pro. Just think how much more bearable flip-flop season would be.
But why in the middle of the night, Mr. Mayor? Real men get their toes done in broad daylight! Don't believe me? Just look at Tim Tebow, Dwayne Wade, and P Diddy. Even Justin Bieber has his own nail polish collection.

While she describes her color on Twitter as "Louis Vuitton brown," we see it more as a warm caramel hue. She does have one bold blonde streak on the side, but that's the only Gaga-like detail we see. Gone are the elaborate hair bows and theatrical updos.

Clockwise from top left: Anna Molinari 2004, Dior 2006, Diane Von Furstenberg 2010, Salvatore Ferragamo 2012.
Perhaps the most versatile look in a makeup artist's repertoire is the smoky eye, and its shape and intensity have varied wildly from season to season. Punk-rock-inspired gothic interpretations ruled the early aughts; later, pewter panda eyes eased into more subtle washes of color. Our favorite? The gray and burgundy shadows blended over lids at Salvatore Ferragamo.
Pro tip: Don't be afraid to take neutral hues up to the brow bone for more impact.

This is the thing about foundations: It's kind of like shapewear. At its worst, it's uncomfortable, it makes you sweat, and people can tell you're wearing it. But at its best, you look flawless, all the right places are expertly concealed-and nobody knows exactly why.

And just like Spanx, the kind of coverage you need depends on the look you're going for. Just keep in mind that the goal is to use as little foundation as possible. Determine the best texture and shade for your skin tone, follow a few key application tricks, and everything you wear on top will glide on perfectly.
1. Start with clean, well-moisturized skin. Massage your moisturizer on your face and neck and allow it to absorb fully-about ten minutes. "Moisturizer works a little like primer and helps makeup last longer," says Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin.

My rose gold inspiration!This season, everything's coming up rose gold! Walk by any jewelry display and you'll see rows of blush toned baubles.
Rose gold, a sparkling gold/copper hybrid is flattering on every skin tone, adds a subtle glow to any look, and looks amazing with a little black dress. (I have been lusting after the Tiffany Rubedo Cuff Bracelet for months now!)
Here a few great makeup products to give you that same rose gold glow...but for a much smaller price tag!
Sweep a shimmery rose gold eyeshadow over your lids. Smudge a navy eye pencil across your upper lash lines and top with a dark navy mascara.
MAC Eye Shadow in Naked Lunch, $15
Sweep a rose gold bronzer onto the apples of your cheeks and into your temples. Pair with subtle brown or khaki eye shadow and a sheer, peachy lip gloss.
