Closing Ceremony

Olympic Closing Ceremony: Spice Girls’ fashion.

We take a look at the fashion choices of each of the Spice Girls from last night’s Olympic Closing Ceremony.
The Olympics last night finally drew to a close, and it most certainly went out with a bang.
We waited with breath that was baited for the rumours to come true and we finally got to see The Spice Girls together and performing once again.
They most certainly didn’t disappoint. The bedazzled Hackney cabs, the energy, the outfits it was everything we could have hoped for and in all honesty we didn’t want it to end.
The costumes that they decided upon were updated Spice Girl fashion that stayed true to each of their own persona.
There was rumours last week that they would all be wearing Giles Deacon, but this proved untrue. However, Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice did.
She chose a strapless gown, obviously in black, with tiers, ruffles and gold embroidery. The dress was custom made for the event, but was inspired by the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.
Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, went for a cute pink dress by Maggi Cooke. The mini dress featured structured glitter-covered shoulders with a deep-pplunging neckline. Silver sparkling peep-toes and glossy blonde waves completed her look.
It was as sweet as she is.
My favourite look had to be Melanie Chislom, Sporty Spice. Her outfit was perfect and she looked stunning. She’s wowed me recently with her fashion choices.
The singer was dressed by JD Sports, in a white jumpsuit with side split pants and a silver sparkling waistband which was designed by the leading sports fashion retailer. She paired the outfit with a pair of on-trend Silver Wedged trainers.

I must admit that I hoped and prayed that Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, would don her infamous Union Jack dress, but alas it was not to be.
Instead she insporated the flag into her red Suzanne Neville strapless mini dress which featured gold detailing. She paired the look with a beautiful Halo & Co gold filigree tiara and a pair of Isabel Marant gold glitter ‘Dicker’ ankle boots.
Melanie Brown, Mel B, Scary Spice tweeted before the event that her hair was ”Scary” and she didn’t disappoint. She looked amazing.
It has to be said that she looked as though she enjoyed herself most out of the girls and was definitely the standout in her Zuhair Murad jumpsuit.
The nude skin-tight look was embroidered with intricate gold-sequin detailing. She paired the look with a pair of gold heels.
They all looked amazing, but like I said before why can’t they just reform once again?
Did you enjoy their performance?

Romantic involvement

Rory McIlroy somehow wins a major while dating someone famous.

By crushing the field at the PGA Championship this weekend, McIlroy has dismissed the silly notion that a bad game or a slump by an elite athlete has anything at all to do with his or her romantic involvement with someone beautiful and famous.
Going into the PGA, McIlroy was in the midst of a rather shaky season. He had missed the cut at three tournaments, including the U.S. Open, where he was the defending champion. Naturally, many people said his spotty play had everything to do with his relationship with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki.
Then, tied for the lead with more than one round remaining the next day, McIlroy stayed up late watching his girlfriend play in the Rogers Cup. Can you imagine what the critics would have said if he hadn’t smoked everyone Sunday with a bogey-free six-under-par 66 in the final round?
McIlroy could.
“To be honest, it did motivate me,” he said. “I did want to go out there and prove a few people wrong. That’s what I did.”
If they were still together, Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson would be thanking McIlroy.
If they were still together, Matt Kemp and Rihanna would be thanking McIlroy.
If they actually were/are together, Kate Upton and Mark Sanchez and/or Justin Verlander would be thanking McIlroy.
Instead, I’ll do it.Thank you, Rory McIlroy! Now we can all go on with our lives.

New reality

Ready For Love NBC Dating Show Stars Miami Bachelor Ernesto Arguello.

One of Miami’s most eligible bachelors will be reppin’ our fine city this winter on a new reality TV series. Ready for Love is NBC’s latest spin on the art of arranged on-screen romance, in which three seasoned matchmakers will try to help three lonely bachelors find a soulmate, all under the watchful eye of primetime audiences and Facebook addicts.
Yes, another romance reality show. But this one might actually be promising, if you’re into that sort of thing. Let us tell you all about our guy. Because it’s good.
Ernesto Arguello is a 33-year-old philanthropist, or, as all of Ready for Love’s promo materials have specified, “an entrepreneur with a social vision.” He is the son of Cuban and Nicaraguan refugees and spent his childhood living in Honduras, during which period he says he first took note of the inequality and unsafe living conditions for so many in the world. He studied engineering and architecture at the University of Miami and has been here ever since, building a successful career which eventually moved into philanthropy. Among other things, he helped establish an organization that provides safe housing for people in underdeveloped countries in Latin America.”I grew up with the mentality of leaving this world a better place than I found it,” he says in the video above. “Giving back to these communities is far more rewarding than any amount of money or any material possessions I could ever have.”
To top it off, of course, Ernesto is devastatingly handsome. However, he is also devastatingly single. Enter NBC and Eva Longoria, who happens to be the Ready for Love’s executive producer.
Along with two other bachelors (Ben from Dallas and Tim from Santa Barbara), Ernesto will leave his fate up to Longoria and three professional matchmakers, who will each hand-select a group of women to vie for one man’s heart. In an interesting spin, the matchmakers culled their female picks from applications submitted on Facebook. Up until May 18, women could nominate themselves or a friend for a spot on the show via an app on Ready for Love’s Facebook page (sorry ladies, we know it’s too late to sign up now…next time).
Facebook will be used throughout the airing of the show as well, as an extra-interactive feature “immersing viewers in 24-hour storytelling through the Facebook Pages for Longoria, the eligible guys, the matchmakers, and the women looking for love,” according to NBC.
To us, this seems like the most realistic thing a “reality” show has done to date, considering we already conduct the majority of our social business on Facebook anyways. Stay tuned for Ernesto updates before the show premieres this winter.
