Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2010

In the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City, Victoria’s Secret Angels caused the temperature to rise more than a smidge with their annual Fashion Show on November 11, 2010. Airing Tuesday, November 30th on CBS at 10pm, you too will be able to see the show.  Below is a collection of photos from the show, the multi-million dollar bra, backstage, the performers, and the location. Click here to hear Akon’s “Angel” song and see a preview of the show.  I don’t know about you, but this is my motivation to find other ways to enjoy the holidays besides tasting every hors d'oeuvre. We’ll see how long it lasts. :)

Wings And All

Regal, traditional, classic, and proper.  These are just a few of the words I would use to describe a room that includes a wing chair (or wingback).  While there are many different styles of this particular design, I tend to find myself drawn to them like a moth to a flame.  It is almost as if a hug is awaiting with its arms outstretched and I simply can’t leave them hanging. Today’s furniture designers have creatively carried this idea to the bedroom with wing headboards, as well as wing settees. So whether in a study, by the fireplace, in the kitchen nook or the master bedroom, you can always feel as though you are royalty.  Have a look at the collection of rooms, and if you’d like to find one for your very own, Elle Decor, on two separate occasions, has organized their top ten choices of wing chairs.

Camel For All Situations

Monday has arrived and hopefully you had smooth sailing without any oopses, but as this pictorial in Elle Ukraine’s October 2010 issue demonstrates, if you’re wearing camel, no matter what the day presents, you will always look fabulous.
