Among them, we can say that Vera Wang had a great show. Keira Knightley donned a great wine-colored, one-shoulder gown designed by Vera Wang. It must be noted that white or off-white colors were worn for the most part tonight. Knightley complemented this beautiful gown with a spectacular necklace with emeralds, rubies and diamonds that come from the Bulgari archives. She also wore gold sandals with multiple ankle straps designed by Jimmy Choo. Miss Knightley who is 20 years old turned heads on the red carpet. Her makeup artist used steel and charcoal chanel eye colors on her face. Kudos to Kate Lee who tried to find the right tone to apply to her pigmentation.

With her hair swept in a 1930s style, Michelle Williams wore a marigold yellow chiffon gown with tulle pleats that surround the V neck allowing her to display a 19th-century diamond fringe necklace from the shop of Fred Leighton. Sandra Bullock glowed on the red carpet. The beauty of her dress was a natural attraction, specially when she emerged from the back to present an award. Angel Sanchez dressed Sandra with a navy dress. As far as Amy Adams, she wore a chocolate brown gown with ribbon by Carolina Herrera. Adams also borrowed Herrera's own aquamarine dangling earrings.

Other leading ladies also showed their love for dresses and gowns on this special night. John Galliano for Christian Dior dressed Charlize Theron with a forest-green handpainted gown with a giant bow on the shoulder. She also commented on the leather silk satin fabric. How about Marc Anthony’s wife, Jennifer Lopez? ." Jennifer Lopez wore a lighter green gown with a fitted bodice that laced up in the back like a corset. It is safe to say that Jennifer wore one of the best dresses on the red carpet tonight. Corset is making a comeback. More and more Hollywood and New York ladies are wearing it. Giorgio Armani dressed Zivi Zhang in a black scalloped seashell-shaped lace bustier with jet beading worn with a gray Swarovski crystal encrusted full crinoline skirt.

No Freaking Allowed: High School Principals Put Their Foot Down
Topic: Formal Prom Dances

All over the country, parents and high school principals are at arms over the new dance craze which simulates sexual activity on the dance floor. Many of them have never had the chance to be at a dance to witness freak dancing first hand. So they rely on others' report and the lone courageous chaperone's testimonial. Now, one may have to wonder whether these parents have even watched BET, Mundo, and MTV to get an idea of the new dance moves. We also wonder whether they know that some magazines such as Essence and Boston Globe are leading campaigns against what they see as the degradation of the female body on Hip Hop music videos.

These days, the impact of the hip hop/music video-based culture takes its toll on families. It causes parents to argue with their daughters. For example, parents have to negotiate whether it is appropriate to let them have body piercings and some gothic tattoos. When it comes to freaking, they may not have enough information to make up their mind. Peer pressure causes many women to wear belly button jewels. It is the continuing quest to be beautiful, popular and hip.

We will not provide all the definitions of freaking here. But if you are interested, you can see many definitions and the origins of this term at The site has a disclaimer. "Urban Dictionary is not appropriate for all audiences." It is a slang dictionary with your definitions. The site helps you define your world.

The Little Black Dress, The Pink Gown, and the White Outfit
Topic: Miami Beach Prom Shops

The little black dress is always in vogue. The white dress is also making a comeback. There are some venues where white dresses will fit in very well. At cocktail parties, white dresses are welcome. If you want, you can always accessorize them. Depending on your shape, you may want to see which type of color enhances your body. You even have to care about your complexion and ethnic background. Experts say that there are some colors that tend to highlight your figure. They say that brunettes and readheads look awesome in white. However rubenesque ashy blondes may not look too great wearing white dresses. If you are olive-skinned and any other color derivatives, you may want to choose bright whites or some other colors. Fashionistas recommend that you play with the colors a little bit.

How about caring for white dresses?

Experts recommend that you clean the underarms of dresses with a little cold water before you put them away. The reason is that sweat stains tend to form under the arms. Keep in mind that whites tend to show sweat stains. The same experts say that white is to be used between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Others say that white is good for any season. It is almost like black. For sure, you will find a lot of people buying white in the Spring to stock up for the Summer months. They will buy cotton materials mostly. A word of wisdom for anybody wearing white is to stay away from anything that may put a permanent stain on it.

Cate Blanchett reached down to Valentino who designed her gold silk gown. She turned heads on the red carpet last night. She won as a supporting actress and a good choice of dress selector.

Both of these leading ladies wore greek-inspired gowns.

Great that Hilary Swank got the Best Actress award for Million Dollar Baby! Her long ??“sleeved, backless dress was designed by Guy Laroche. The dress was a nice sapphire blue that accentuates the curvilinear assets of the actress. Read the rest of the article at California's Hot PromDresses.
