polo money clip Rihanna Offers Her Style Tips In Vogue Cover Interview

Rihanna is featured on the cover of this month’s issue of US Vogue alongside a reverential feature interview. During a style feature, the pop star gives readers and insight into her coveted styling and fashion tips.

Rihanna Graces The Cover Of This Month’s US Vogue.

“I do them myself, Rihanna reveals, referring to the immaculate, feline sweep of eyeliner above her distinctive eyes. When Plum Sykes, the interviewer, asks whether Rihanna could do hers, the star gets to work right there and then: “Jen. Get me my eyeliner from MAC,” she commands her personal assistant, who zips straight to the MAC store around the corner. These shots came out amazing. She conducted the interview with long, wavy black hair one one side with the other shaved. “It’s not my hair, but the girl who donated it, she’s the bomb,” the ‘S star revealed candidly. “Black girls never let anyone see this,” she said, showing off where the weave attached to her head.

Rihanna Revealed Herself To Be An Advocate Of Painfully High Heels.

“I have two main hair people I work with. They’re always with me. I’m like, ‘I’m bored! I wanna change my hair!’ That’s the good thing about a weave. You can do whatever with it.”

Controversially, Rihanna is an advocate for high heels the bigger the better regardless of any pain. “It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment. I say to myself, ‘I want to look like this,’ and worry about the pain later. I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand,” she said, whilst wearing a pair of “four inch pointy heeled Saint Laurent black suede booties with leather ties wrapped around her ankles.”

But how is Rihanna’s lipstick helping to help people in need?

Rihanna rocked up to the interview, which was held in across a series of designer stores, in a Jen Kao denim suit with a long shirt, a black polo neck bodysuit, with plenty of characteristically ostentatious gold jewellery adorning her body. You might presume that Rihanna, one of the top earning music artists in the world, would pick expensive bling, but this is apparently not the case.

The Pop Star Was Open About Her Style Choices, Including Her Hair And Make Up.

“My jewelry’s all fake from Claire’s. Or I get it from my mom’s boutique in Barbados. Her shop’s called FAB U LUS,” the singer revealed, with much ensuing excitement on social media. Vogue’s Sykes did add on a rather snide note that she was surprised to learn that the millionaires wears “throwaway jewelry” but for us it was a major tidbit of styling info to learn that we can pick up RiRi’s hip hop look for a few quid in pretty much any shopping centre.

The ‘Only Girl’ performer also shared the looks that she’s loving at the moment, which include big jackets and brothel creeper shoes. “More than anything, I like a jacket,” she exclaimed. “You can do anything with a great jacket, the bigger the better. You can have any silhouette underneath. It gives you an attitude. It makes a gown look cool.”

Rihanna Revealed That She Loves Shopping At Claire’s For Jewellery.

“I love baggy things. I wear men’s clothes, men’s shoes, oxfords, creepers,” the star disclosed. She said that Alexander Wang, Tom Ford and Adam Selman are amongst her favourite designers these days.

It’s quite the revelation that the Barbadian tomboy whose mother used to buy her the same clothes as her brother for simplicity is now one of the most looked to fashion icons on the planet. Vogue’s shoot showed off her incredible versatility; her ability to transform from feminine to fierce with a single well placed fashion piece.

portland bike polo Rider holds off Hampton to win season opener

Allen made five 3 pointers and finished with 21 points in his debut and Rider pulled away from Hampton late in the second half to win its season opener, 90 75, on Friday night.

weren any nerves, Allen said. was more of being excited that I finally here. Sitting out a whole year was really nerve wracking because I didn want to sit out, but I had to. Coming into the first game, it like, shoot, I finally here.

He scored 16 of his team high 21 points in the second half and connected on four of his five made 3s.

Allen missed his first three attempts from beyond the arc, but hit his fourth as time expired in the first half to tie the game at intermission.

helped me a lot because my teammates and my coaches wanted me to take that shot, Allen said. they said that, my eyes got big, because I knew they still believed in me. The 14 made 3s were more than in any single game last season, a campaign in which they shot 33.2 percent as a team.

is definitely the best shooting team I had here, coach Kevin Baggett said. still got to get better. We got to share ball and execute our offense better but we definitely have got guys who can shoot the ball this year.

The Broncs also shook off some shaky first half free throw shooting and rebounded to make 13 of 16 in the second half and finish the game 20 for 34.

Jordan tallied nine of his 17 points during the decisive 16 6 run that gave Rider a 75 66 lead with 4:46 remaining.

going to go through some growing pains because we young, Baggett said. are going to make mistakes in key parts of the game, yet these guys stayed together. Nobody was arguing with each other and we settled down, made some free throws the second half and guys made some big shots. Hampton led by as many as eight with seven minutes left in the first half.

These two teams could square off again over the Thanksgiving break since both are in the Las Vegas Invitational.

allen edmonds polo Rickie Fowler honors friendship with Arnold Palmer with

Arnold Palmer’s sense of cool and style was unmatched in golf for decades, making it only fitting Fowler found a way to honor The King with his wardrobe during the first tournament at Bay Hill without Palmer.

On the eve of the opening round of Arnold Palmer Invitational, Fowler donned special edition Puma hi top shoes during Wednesday’s Pro Am to pay homage to Palmer and his charity.

“I told some people I’m not sure if I’m going to take them off,” Fowler said.

A collage of Palmer appears on each side of the shoes; Palmer’s signature is laser engraved on the Velcro straps; and his multi colored umbrella logo sits behind the tongue of the left shoe, while on the right are words from Fowler on Palmer’s influence.

“I love you as did everyone! RIP The King!,” Fowler concludes.

“I’m glad I stepped up to the occasion, at least showed him a little bit,” Fowler said.

Palmer had his moments that day, too.

“Still had great hands,” Fowler said. “I think it was on 11, he hit about a 50 yard bunker shot up the hill. No big deal. And that’s one of the hardest shots in golf.”

Fowler played Bay Hill for the second time a few weeks later, finishing for a tie for 30th after a tough final round 78. In 2013, Fowler tied for third, while Tiger Woods won the API for the eighth time.

“That was one of my kind of favorite memories from here,” Fowler said. “I was able to hang at bar with [Woods] and Arnold after that and just kind of share a late afternoon into the night with those guys.”

But Fowler could not make it to Bay Hill in 2016 for the final tournament with Arnold Palmer there.

Fowler, who lives in Jupiter, did make a two hour drive to have lunch with Palmer and let him know he would not be playing.

Palmer appreciated the Fowler going the extra mile.

Palmer’s undisturbed office at Bay Hill is a veritable museum to his career. Only one golf hat sits on the shelves one signed by Fowler after his visit last March.

“I wasn’t aware of it,” Fowler said. “I was sent a picture a few days back and saw it was in there. Hopefully we can add to that.

“I want to leave the right shoe here and hopefully next to the hat.”

Fowler plans to put the left shoe in a small shrine to Palmer back at his home, along with a Ryder Cup hat with an umbrella pin, a program from Palmer’s Oct. 4 memorial service in Latrobe, Pa., and other items related to The King.

The other pair of commemorative hi tops will be auctioned on ebay until Sunday, with proceeds going to Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. As the afternoon wound down Wednesday, the bid was approaching $10,000.

But Fowler knows the best way to honor Palmer this week would be to win his tournament.

At times, Fowler’s career has been more style than substance, but his talent has never been a question.

His win last month at the Honda Classic, Fowler’s fourth victory on Tour, moved him inside the top 10 in the world rankings and makes him a favorite this week.

“I like where the game’s at, where it’s heading,” he said.

But if Fowler were to walk away from Bay Hill Sunday with a win, something would be missing.

Palmer’s 72nd hole handshake capped a big week for the winner. Soon, he was sure to receive one of the handwritten, congratulatory letters Palmer would send players throughout the season.

“Whenever you see the letterhead and see who it’s from . it could be a blank page and just signed Arnold Palmer at the end and it’s awesome,

” Fowler said. “I know everyone’s going to miss those.”.

one as a security guard to making donuts at Alexander Grocery Store. But likely his favorite job was working with his daughter Kathy and her husband Terry at their gas station and convenience store, now called Hudson Bridge Express in Hudson. Java Meister, who gives his age as click from 70. The nickname is not just a joke for Moore. He wears the title proudly when he goes to work each day at 2:45am at the Hudson Bridge Exxon Station. This is his second career. His first was as a store manager for Thom McAn Shoes.

get me wrong, he says. loved that job, but this is the perfect career for me. I don just make the coffee. I also kind of the public relations rep. I know an awful lot of people that come in here and there not a person that walks through that door that I don want to see. friends with the truck drivers and the farmers and the landscapers. I pick their brain for information, tips. People think I able to give them the weather report every day because I see it on TV. No it because every morning at 5 two meteorologists a married couple come in on their way to work. They tell me the weather and I tell it to everyone else that comes in that day.

father used to tell me when you love your job, it not like having to work at all. Now I know he was right.

Dick held the title of Java Meister from 1997 until his second retirement in 2005.

He made sure everyone who walked in the store was greeted with a warm smile and that they felt at home, especially if they were there for some of his coffee.

He loved animals always had cats and dogs throughout his life, he found great joy with his cats and Pumpkin and also with his grandson Matt dog.

In 2006, Dick and Fran moved to Florida, well, just like a lot of older folks do.

He loved crime novels and almost any biography he could get his hands on.

Dick leaves behind a family that loved him dearly.

LONDON Newcomer Simone Rocha and veteran Jasper Conran are among the designers showcasing their latest autumn and winter styles at London Fashion Week, as British luxury fashion powerhouse Burberry prepared to round out a busy Day 2 with its show later Saturday.

Some highlights from the style extravaganza:

The young designer, known for her modern take on sweet, doll like looks, dressed models in frilly gold or black tulle and lace dresses over slim tailored pieces such as a buttoned up shirt or a trouser suit. The outfits were finished off with mannish brogue shoes or furry flat slippers.

There were exaggerated puff sleeves, embroidered roses, fur trims and rich floral brocade fabrics, perhaps a nod to the John Constable portraits Rocha referred to in her show notes. They were certainly a match with the show’s venue, an ornate red and gold room adorned with giant candlelit chandeliers in London’s palatial Goldsmiths’ Hall.

Rocha did break away from delicate dresses, and those were some of the show’s strongest looks: Belted, double breasted patent leather coats that came in a striking red or military green, as well as red and navy plaid outfits adorned with a tinsel like trim.


Designer Jasper Conran pared down the in your face, bombastic style some rivals have adopted for London Fashion Week. Instead,

Conran showed an elegant collection that relied on many monochromatic outfits with subtle shifts of texture and drape to set them off. The apparent simplicity, offset by the detailing and workmanship, made for an often captivating result.

“I think it’s very much what I’ve learned in my career. These are the things that I know,” said Conran, one of the founding designers of London Fashion Week. “So it’s an expression of quite a long time of learning.”

Conran described the basic elements he used as navy, white and sulphur yellow, with a wide variety of other unusual colours and textures weaved in. He found expressive ways to mix and match, but also relied on one colour from head to toes walking the runway in matching, understated shoes. Most models wore their hair long and natural, giving the collection an airy, ethereal feel.

When shades were mixed, it was frequently striking as in a surprisingly effective dress that paired olive green with dark brown.

Trousers and some dresses were often pleated, and lightweight parkas set off some outfits. Conran seemed to show a special flair in various shades of yellow,

including a hooded yellow parka that seemed both practical and sexy.

ralph lauren polos for women Rhyne picked second in SAC Preseason Football Coaches Poll

burgundy polo boots Rhyne picked second in SAC Preseason Football Coaches Poll

The head football coaches in the South Atlantic Conference, by a slim margin, are predicting Lenoir Rhyne University’s streak of conference titles ends at two.

Four coaches gave LRU a first place vote in the league’s preseason poll released on Monday and four predicted Carson Newman to finish first, ahead of the Bears.

In the overall vote of eight conference head coaches, it was Carson Newman with 59 points, LRU with 55 and Wingate was predicted to finish third (48 points).

Bears head coach Mike Houston said the experience gained last year by LRU players who return from a 9 3 team will play a key role this season.

“I would say it is more of an experience deal for our returning players having played in such big ball games late in the season last year,” Houston said during the SAC’s Digital Media Day on Monday. “As we all know, experience is critical in our sport.”

LRU went 6 1 in the SAC last season and advanced to the postseason for the first time in 50 years. The Bears won their first national playoff game since 1962 as well, beating Fort Valley State 21 6 in the first round.

Carson Newman,
ralph lauren polos for women Rhyne picked second in SAC Preseason Football Coaches Poll
9 3 last year, beat LRU 38 35 in Jefferson City, Tenn., in the second round last season and advanced to the NCAA Division II quarterfinals.

The Bears’ first game is Sept. 7 at home against Concord, W. Va.

LRU and Carson Newman meet in a regular season game on Nov. 2 at LRU.

The Bears return 16 starters, including preseason All American Tanner Botts at linebacker and Isaiah Whitaker at fullback.

“We are obviously going to need a quarterback to step into the shoes of Reuben Haynes,” Houston said. “We have some talented guys competing there. We have great competition at every position as we start practice (Monday).”

As for being picked to finish second in the conference, Houston has bigger things to be concerned about.

“I hope that playing Concord on Sept. 7 is what motivates our players,” Houston said. “Unless we get points on the board for preseason polls they are meaningless.”

performance polos reunion photo after 50 years means getting it right

the polo towers las vegas reunion photo after 50 years means getting it right

They wanted the picture to be just right, to look as close as possible to the one they’d taken together 50 years ago, back when their memories hadn’t yet been clouded by the images of war. Marine veterans gathered around a yellow longboard turned upright, trying to re create a moment from five decades earlier.

Dennis Puleo, 69, removed his shoes, revealing the feet scarred by shrapnel, and pulled off his shirt, flanking the longboard on the right, mugging a wide smile for the camera with his arms extended.

Tom Hanks (not that one), 69, stepped in front of the board and took in a long, deep breath, flexing his still thick upper chest and sucking in his now paunchy belly.

Finally, Bob DeVenezia, 70, crouched down in front of Hanks, resting his elbows on his knobby knees, feeling Hanks’ hands placed on his back.

The picture couldn’t be a perfect copy. They had gray hair and wrinkled skin and undefined stomachs now. But it didn’t matter.

For the first time in five decades, they were together, trying to get it right.

DeVenezia sat at the kitchen table in his East Naples condominium last week, trying to explain why it’d been 50 years since he’d been in the same room as three of his closest Marine Corps friends. He became quiet for a second, searching for the right words.

“We just broke up,” DeVenezia said. “Life is funny like that. I didn’t keep in touch with any of them. Marines were stationed together in Camp Pendleton, outside San Diego. The Vietnam War was ramping up, and together, they were part of a weapons platoon three machine gunners and one anti tank man getting ready to ship off to East Asia.

Over the next two years, they’d train together and deploy together. Once in Vietnam, they’d separate, enduring many of the same horrendous conditions, if not the same action. Two of them would earn Purple Hearts. Each would experience the unexplainable fear of war.

“We had the tools. We had the training,” DeVenezia said. “But nothing trains you for your first combat. Nothing. Zero.”

And then, once their tours were over, each lasting no more than 13 months, they went their own ways.

They would all build successful careers DeVenezia in construction in New Jersey; Falk in retail management in Florida; Hanks in investment banking in Atlanta; Puleo in home security, some in the Northeast and some in Florida. They would all marry a couple of them twice and raise six children among them.

For a long time, they didn’t plan to reunite. Their lives had diverged so dramatically, and the public’s resentment of the war soured them on the potential camaraderie.

“I was too wrapped up in having a good time at first. Then I got married and had a kid,” Falk said. “Now that I’ve retired, I’ve had a lot more time to think back on it.”

About five years ago, Falk stumbled across an online memorial that Hanks created for a fallen comrade they all knew. That started a chain of events that put the four back in touch.

For a while, the four would reunite in fits and starts, a few gathering at a time, but never all at once.

Then, when Hanks was flipping through an old photo album, he spotted a picture of the four together on a beach as young Marines. It had been nearly 50 years since the photograph was taken.

He got an idea.

Nobody can remember the precise date when the picture was taken. Sometime in May 1966. Probably early in the month.

What they can agree on is that the snapshot captured a memorable time for the young men ranging from age 19 to 21.

They were fresh out of eight will busting weeks of basic training in Parris Island, now stationed in San Diego’s Camp Pendleton, brothers in the weapons platoon of Bravo Company. How did they, of all the Marines in Pendleton, get together?

“Nobody knows,” DeVenezia said. “We were all on the same boat, we were all on the same weapons platoon, we all knew we were going to be cannon fodder, bodies for Vietnam. And you just hook up.”

During the week, they would prepare for the war an ocean away, making 20 mile marches through the nearby mountains, sleeping in freshly dug holes overnight.

But on those blissful weekends, they were free men, full of energy and passion, some with a bullheaded streak typical of some young Marines.

“We cemented a relationship then, and I can’t say it was all fun and games,” Hanks said.

Sometimes, on their more tame adventures, they’d go to the San Diego Zoo. Sometimes, they’d bar hop, where the Navy boys were always up for a good scrap. Other times, they’d trek down to Tijuana, where surely nothing good happened.
