Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
Everyone kind of knew she’d be wearing Dior since she’s the new face and all, but no one expected her to look this flawless. The cinched belt at the waistline completes this look.
Charlize Theron in Dior completely gets Yow Yow’s stamp of approval for being the best dressed on the red carpet last night. There was a whole lot of cream and ivory, but gosh the simplicity and elegance of this gown made me melt. The headband was also what sealed the deal for me.

“Blake Lively Played By “The Rules” To Catch Leonardo Di Caprio” was the headline that snagged my attention today. Juxtaposed next to a picture of Blake Lively’s face was “The Rules” in book form – a book that I actually had not even heard of until today. I figured I had to learn more because I was curious about these rules. Are they rules that I subconsciously follow? Are some of the rules ones that I honestly follow today? The post lead me to the Wikipedia page which I assumed was just a shortened version of the book.
The rules I found to be the most interesting were:
4. Don’t meet him halfway or go dutch on a date
7. Don’t accept a Saturday night date after Wednesday
20. Be honest, but mysterious
23. Don’t date a married man – - Can we extend this to don’t date a man already dating someone else slash don’t be a hussy.
26. Even if you’re engaged or married, you still need the rules
As I read down the rules, I found myself nodding in agreement for some of them, but the farther I went down the more skeptical I became. Are these rules really “the game” in disguise? I’m all for playing a little hard to get, but if you have to continue this act throughout your engagement and marriage, won’t you just exhaust yourself? Also, when dating, I’ve heard that guys actually like it when girls at least attempt to pay for at least their portion. Personally, I think it’s polite and it’s a nice gesture even if in the end you know the guy will end up paying.
So I’m curious…
Women – Are you following these rules? Do you have your own set of rules?
Men – What are your reactions to this type of behavior?

I really love what I do. Tonight my work allowed me the opportunity to see the advanced screening of the new film “Inception,” due out this Friday, July 16th.
I don’t want to give too much away about the film because you will enjoy it so much more if you know less. In fact, Leonardo DiCapario said in an interview not too long ago that he liked that there was so much mystery surrounding the trailer and what the movie was about because it added more suspense.
The cast was amazing. Leonardo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and Marion Cotillard blew me away. Some movies rely on an all-star cast to generate more buzz, but most of the time it isn’t accounted for. In fact, many are left feeling unsatisfied. With Inception, you won’t be. Every person has served their purpose. No one impressed me more than Miss Ellen Page. Even though she broke out of her Juno character with Whip It, she truly showed her wide range of acting abilities in this movie.
The film was beautiful, thrilling, and daring. It will keep you on the edge of your seat for all two and a half hours, but you’ll love every minute of it. Christopher Nolan did an incredible job with it all and you might even catch a few similarities from The Dark Knight as well. It’s funny how the movie is about dreams and imagination because you will find yourself being pulled deeper and deeper into it and it is such an overwhelming feeling how attached you will be to this film in the end. What is real and what isn’t? This film will push you to think. It is complex and built upon layers, but it isn’t a chaotic mess. Just follow along and if you get a little lost along the way, maybe your imagination will put you back on the right track.
The reviews are coming out as we speak. The tough critics over at Rotten Tomatoes have already given it a 96% which is pretty damn good! For reference Toy Story 3 received a 99% and Eclipse got 54%
I also received some incredible responses from our viewers tonight:
“I can’t wait to go to sleep now!”
“…One of the best movies I’ve seen in two years.”
“Exceptional – best one I’ve seen all year.”
“I trust Nolan more than any other director.”
I highly recommend seeing this movie. I might even see it a second time. Let me know what you think!
