First Lady Michelle Obama picked fashion insider Isabel Toledo, 47, to design her Inaugural ensemble. The glamorous, creamy yellow dress and matching overcoat were made of satin-backed wool guipure, a kind of lace used most often in French haute couture. Obama accessorized the look with a sparkling crystal necklace and green leather gloves and shoes. Although the First Lady's office repeatedly said that Obama would not decide on her outfit until this morning, the choice — including the color, fabric and accessories — shows a lot of confidence and planning on the wearer's part.

Cuban-born Toledo, who has been designing for 25 years and worked for a time at Anne Klein, is known in fashion circles as a "designer's designer" for her wit and whimsical sense of pattern, fit and fabric. The Manhattan-based designer also made the black tunic and palazzo pants that Obama wore to a fundraiser last June. But for her husband's swearing-in ceremony, Obama chose an elegantly sunny yellow, a color that for centuries has represented optimism.

Anyway, here's one of comment that I have stumbleupon with tru surfing the net.

"its called airbrushing and photoshop. She has the worst set of implants the world ever saw but here they look rather natural. She also looks here like she's eaten in the last year.. probably also due to photoshop. Usually photoshop is used to take away from someones frame but here its used to make her look at least model thin."

Now, what can you say about it?

New Katie Holmes Miu Miu Spring 2009 ad Campaign

Katie Holmes Miu Miu Spring

Looking more like a Victoria Beckham clone with each passing day, Katie Holmes looks amazingly ridiculous in a new ad campaign for Miu Miu.

Miu Miu is a "daily-oriented, more affordable clothing line" from Prada. Apparently, Miu Miu specializes in chic alien attire for the modern woman.

With her run on Broadway's "All My Sons" having reached its end, perhaps Katie is auditioning for a role in Star Wars. As in the 1977 original.

Cemetery Most cemeteries in Japan are Buddhist and are located at a temple. The Japanese visit their ancestors' graves on many occasions during the year, especially during the obon week, the equinoctial weeks and anniversaries. Shinto shrines are places of worship and the dwellings of the kami, the Shinto "gods". Sacred objects of worship that represent the kami are stored in the innermost chamber of the shrine where they cannot be seen by anybody.
