Susan Boyle had a special make-over made for her spectacularlar appearance in Harper’s Bazaar. She look absolutely gorgeous and she definitely lost her “hairy angel” nickname. She’s a living proof that, with a little attention, we all can become stars.

‘The idea behind the shoot was a very, very simple one,’ Laura Brown, Harper’s special projects editor, said when interviewed on NBC’s Today Show. ‘It was to take gorgeous, glamorous and sensitive portraits of her. This was her first magazine photo shoot, so you can’t do too much too soon.’

Susan became an overnight sensation when her audition for the Britain’s Got Talent was put on YouTube, with hundreds of millions logging on to watch her sing. [via Harpers Bazaar]

In splendid defiance of the darkness of the time, Zuhair Murad’s Fall Winter collection 2009 2010 was presented during the fashion week in Paris on July 7, in Carrousel du Louvre. Entitled Winter Rhapsody, this collection is inspired by all-white winter scenery and mystical beauty.

Leaves of organza quietly fall over elegiac dresses in graceful order. Embroidered on airy fabrics like tulles and lace, they lend a sense of natural flow to each dress. Colours follow: light grey icicle white, champagne and frosted almond, all contrasted by metallic threads and finishes.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s unique sense of quirky elegance touched our hearts through her lovable character, Carrie Bradshaw, on “Sex and the City.”But Sarah Jessica Parker, the fashion icon, was also made by her daring red carpet choices, from microminis to ballerina dresses.

In 2004, the actress was recognized by the exclusive Council of Fashion Designers of America who presented Sarah Jessica Parker with the “Style Icon” award.

Then, in 2005, Sarah Jessica Parker’s first perfume came out — it’s called Lovely and smells amazing — in a partnership with Coty, Inc.

Ana Torres 2010 Bridal and Evening Collection

The Cordoba designer Ana Torres has taken coral reefs and the vibrant colours they contain as the inspiration for the forthcoming 2010 spring-summer season, which give her designs the personal, characteristic touch that has been found in her collections for over 25 years.

The blue tones, which range from sky blue to the most impressive turquoises, transport us to warm Caribbean waters. She adds emerald green and salmon tones to these colours.

The lightness of silk muslin gives her designs an extraordinary diaphanous nature which manages to simulate the movement of waves. All this, together with the clever fall and her carefully studied volumes, makes the collection highly varied yet, at the same time, as uniform and symbiotic as the ecosystem in a coral reef.

Steal that style: Alexandre Pato and Sthefany Brito

Steal that style: Robinho and Vivian Guglielmetti Junit

Fans may sing a chorus of “We’ve got Robinho” whenever the soccer star enters a stadium, but on the evening of July 9, 2009 the Manchester City striker’s heart and soul belonged to his bride, Vivian Guglielmetti Junits. The couple’s 11-year love story– which produced son Robson Jr., named in honor of the athlete’s true name, Robson de Souza– led to their pronouncement as husband and wife in a ceremony held at the Hotel Casa Grande in Guaruja, São Paulo, Brazil, Globo reports.

The sight of the groom in his Armani suit and the bride in her multi-tiered, crystal-accented creation no doubt brought back happy memories of their 2005 I do’s to fellow soccer star Kaká and his wife Caroline Celico, just two of the many friends and family on hand to witness the wedding.
