Sheena Matheiken made "Uniform Project dress" famous

Sheena Matheiken made "Uniform Project dress" famous by wearing it 365 days, 365 different ways--comes a fresh new fashion label Bright Young Things. The catch: the label is comprised of one season-less LBD, designed to be worn continuously and made to order, locally in New York City. Could it be the most sustainable dress on the market?

As a friend of the Uniform Project, I attended the launch event at the carefully curated boutique Maryam Nassir Zadeh in New York City .

Four-inch heels can alter a pregnant woman's posture and make her more accident-prone.

Baby on board? Think twice before stepping out in stilettos. Pregnant women who wear high heels, ballet pumps, Ugg boots and flip flops are setting themselves up for painful foot problems, according to a poll that was reported by the BBC.

A survey of 1,000 moms-to-be from the British Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists found that many wore fashionable footwear on a regular basis. While half the women admitted feeling pressured to keep up with celebrity trends in footwear, seven in 10 said they were plagued by swollen ankles, swollen feet and arch and heel pain during their pregnancy.

Shoes like stilettos are on the no-no list for pregnant women since they can alter a woman’s posture, place pressure on her back and knees and shorten the calf muscles, according to podiatrist Lorraine Jones.

High heels also "place extra pressure on your joints when they are already under strain - which can result in a host of foot, leg and back problems and could increase the likelihood of falls," she told the BBC.

Of the women surveyed, 66% said they regularly wore flip flops, 32% wore high heels, 30% wore Uggs and 53% wore ballet pumps.

Both weight gain and an altered center of gravity can cause sway-backed posture in pregnant women, and this can put pressure on the knees, legs and feet, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. To prevent foot disorders, the association recommends avoiding high heels and instead, wearing shoes that have a strong, supportive arch.

Not that any pregnant woman wants to hear it, but the society recommends "supportive, wide fitting shoes." The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests that moms-to-be wear "comfortable footwear that provides extra support and shock absorption."

Don’t want to look like a fashion disaster? Keep in mind that the expectant celebrities shown tottering on four-inch heels don’t wear those shoes for very long.

"Many of the pregnant celebrities you see wearing high heels in magazines are attending events," Jones said. "So like them, try to keep your high-heeled, high-fashion shoes for a special occasion and stick to a more supportive shoe on a daily basis."

Diana’s black dress, which made her a fashion icon

A racy black gown worn by Lady Diana Spencer on one of her first official engagements has been snapped up by a Chilean fashion museum for nearly 200,000 pounds (more than $275,000) — several times the original estimate.

This is a strapless silk taffeta dress of black color.

Elizabeth Emanuel, who designed the black dress with her then-husband David said,"I think Diana didn't really have a particular sense of style, I mean, she dressed as a typical 'Sloane Ranger' of that time, you know, with the skirts, cardigan, little sweater, pearls, it was kind of a uniform for girls of that age,"

"Royals aren't supposed to wear black, apart from when in mourning," she said.

But with this dress Diana became a fashion icon that the press couldn't wait to see what she would be wearing next.

Black gives a gorgeous look.

Black coloured dress is mostly famous all around the world. WOMEN all around the world have always seen it as a sophisticated wardrobe and now it seems that little black dress in simply impressive.

Not only women, also men prefer black wardrobes as the most cool wear.
A survey shows that one in 10 people choose black dress for a dating.

Many people think that" Some are sentimental about the item.”

But there is no way to deny that black is the color that gives every one a gorgeous fashionable look.

Angelina Jolie prefers to be fashionable according to her children’s choice.

The ‘Salt’ actress Angelina Jolie – who raises six children with her partner Brad Pitt, adopted children, Maddox, Zahara and Pax, and biological kids Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne – admits her young family are “uninterested” in watching her movies and often mistake her acting scenes for real life.

While some of her tots don’t like it when Angelina changes her dark locks for blonder tones, her four-year-old daughter Shiloh - who has cropped hair – likes offering her mother style advice.

She has confessed that she did all these for her children "Shiloh wanted me to get my hair cut short."

The 35-year-old actress added to Us Weekly magazine: "We met doing this style of film. He knows that in some way the action of it is fun for me. We have fun together doing kind of physical things, whether it's my training for this or motorcycle practice... it was fun.

"I was sitting in my nightgown in bed feeling very, very girly and very soft. I sat with the script on the bed... I said I think I found something that will help me get kind of fired up again and physical again.”
