The 30-year-old star, who stepped out in a Chanel Couture black metallic high-neck dress and silver double-breasted silver jacket, has some major sartorial skills -- which we're sure Anna has picked up on. Couple that with her stunning good looks and all signs point to a best-selling cover. Right?
So, fingers crossed, Anna and Lupita's impromptu meeting really does turn into a cover!
Reggie had several issues when he dated Kim but seems to be living a private beautiful life since ending things with the reality star. Not only has his career picked up, he has a baby with his girlfriend, and paparazzi don't follow him around like they used to when he was with Kim.
Kanye's career on the other hand, has taken a turn for the worst since dating Kim. His popularity has dropped by 66%, he's having legal issues after assaulting paparazzi, he's not able to fill concert venues, Jay Z is not messing with him anymore and he just seems to be having a nervous breakdown.
Aleksander Antonov, who headed Tatarstan's branch of the Federal Security Service, was also among the passengers. The victims also included two children.The Boeing 737 had taken off from Moscow and was trying to land but exploded on impact at about 19:20 local time (15:20 GMT), officials said.The Emergencies Ministry said there were 44 passengers and six crew members on the Tatarstan Airlines flight.Investigators are now looking at whether a technical failure or crew error may have caused the crash. Among the dead was Irek Minnikhanov, a son of the president of the Russian Republic of Tatarstan, according to the official passenger list.
Reports said the pilot had already tried to land several times before crashing. The crew had said they were not ready to land because of technical problems, Russian news agencies report.
A journalist who said she had flown on the same aircraft from Kazan to Moscow earlier on Sunday told Russia's Channel TV that there was a strong vibration during the landing in the Russian capital.
"When we were landing it was not clear whether there was a strong wind, although in Moscow the weather was fine, or some kind of technical trouble or problem with the flight," said Lenara Kashafutdinova.
"We were blown in different directions, the plane was tossed around. The man sitting next to me was white as a sheet."
The airport in Kazan - the capital of Tatarstan - has been closed since the accident and is expected to re-open on Monday morning.
Kazan lies about 720km (450 miles) east of Moscow.
Although some of Russia's biggest airlines now have very good reputations, frequent crashes by smaller operators mean the country has one of the worst air safety records in the world.

For mega-wealthy young men of the Gulf Arab states nothing says 'I am rich' more aptly than to Instagram yourself and your lion or cheetah posing alongside your Mercedes or Lamborghini or motoring along in a speedboat.Showing off the Persian Gulf's latest 'ultimate status symbol', the penchant for posting big cat photos on Instagram betrays the young men's sheer bravado or stupidity, depending on your point of view. Indeed, while the intimacy on display the owners seem to share with their cats is clearly touching, others could possibly think of better ways to flaunt their wealth than sharing feeding time or bathing with fully grown 400pound lionsEagerly followed by over 250,000 followers on the popular photo-sharing website, Humaid AlBuQaish, has become cult viewing as he regularly posts himself and his big cats online.While it is not entirely clear what AlBuQaish does for a living or how he accumulated his fabulous wealth and pets, it is clear that he lives a life of luxury that most can only dream of.Trusting his cats implicitly, AlBuQaish is pictured feeding his menagerie of lethal predators and wrestling with them - all the while showing off the fact that he owns such magnificent creatures.Engaging in one-upmanship online, others have posted pictures of their big cats being taken for a spin in a speedboat - while others are happy to place their heads into their prized possession's mouth.The trade in big cats in the Gulf reflects how status among the wealthy is all important, where a rare white lion will sell for around $50,000.Jasim Ali runs the Ras Al Khaimah Wildlife Park in the United Arab Emirates and he adopts and cares for those animals that are discarded once they become too large and dangerous for their boastful owners.
Good news is that Aldi, who is now five years old, has kicked the bad habit. He was taken for play therapy sessions in Jakarta for two weeks to take his mind off his chain-smoking habit and learn to be a normal toddler for the first time. It worked. Aldi no longer smokes. He's now addicted to something else...junk food! Typical! See what he looks like now after the cut...
I'm sure I've seen those trousers somewhere before Diamond............
From The Mirror
Jay Z is said to have bought drinks for a beauty queen amid rumours about his marriage to Beyonce. The rapper spent more than $8,000 on champagne while partying with gorgeous model Claudia Scheelen in Antwerp’s Magic nightclub last month.Claudia, 27, told the Mirror: “I was with my girlfriends and he sent over a drink to us – he had this huge bottle of Ace of Spades champagne, it must have been six or ten litres.“He told me ‘I’ve been all over the entire world, but the girls in Antwerp are the prettiest girls.’”Claudia says Jay Z didn’t talk about his wife or one-year-old daughter when they met. “He didn’t mention Beyoncé or Blu once,” she added.
The ink in the well changes colors when the bill is turned.
President Obama called Oprah "the pinnacle of the entertainment universe," as he put the medal on her neck. Former President Bill Clinton, country star Loretta Lynn, women's rights activist Gloria Steinem, baseball legend Ernie Banks and astronaut Sally Ride also received the award.
Five months after giving birth to baby North, Kim Kardashian looks hotter than ever. But while Kim says that she's shed the 70 pounds of pregnancy weight by doing the Atkins Diet and exercising, Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the reality star has also been sneaking off to get secret cutting-edge cosmetic procedures to get her body back.A source says the new mom has been seeing Dr. Simon Ourian, a Beverly Hills cosmetic plastic surgeon based at the discreet and upscale Epione clinic. She’s been getting work done, including fillers, stretch-mark treatments and a fat-reducing ultrasound procedure on her stomach that costs up to $5,000 a session.
Kim, who most recently visited Dr. Ourian on Nov. 13, gets the Coolaser treatment, which chills the skin and then uses light pulses to vaporize skin cells — removing wrinkles, scars, saggy skin and stretch marks.“It’s popular with celebrities post-baby to reduce stretch marks and sagging in the tummy and breast areas,” an insider tells Life & Style. The Epione clinic can also use ultrasound to melt a layer of fat just beneath the skin.While Kim's rep denies she’s being treated by Dr. Ourian, insiders tell the mag that she's going to great lengths to keep her visits a secret.A source from the clinic shares that “Kim and other high-profile clients can sneak in through a back door” to keep from run-ins with the paparazzi. And during one trip to a laser hair-removal clinic — another of Kim’s secret weapons — she pretended to be visiting the Pilates studio next door. “She even wore workout clothes to throw off the photographers and begged them to make it look like she was going inside to work out, not to get laser treatments,” an insider spills to Life & Style.

I am standing in front of the mirror looking at my reflection. Tears of joy trickle down my rouged cheek before going on stage.I am in tears because I just can’t believe how realistic my dreams have become. I am a woman! Living my life freely. Accepted and respected for my achievements as a model and a performer.My fellow transgendered sisters and brothers paved this way for me. They fought for acceptance, understanding and respect. Some died while fighting for what they believed in and others fell before their time due to hate, rejection and society’s unfairness. Every single story gave me strength to fight on and never to give up.I wish I could tell the younger me who tried to commit suicide twice that life gets better and dreams come true.I did not imagine life could be this amazing many years ago after being released from a horrid Nigerian prison for being different. Then all I could think was I could die in this prison and no one will know or care.Being imprisoned felt justifiable, considering I was being punished for being ‘gay’ – something they assumed due to my feminine features and mannerisms.
I wasn’t gay, I am a woman born differently due to natural defects. What I felt did not match my outward appearance, Being assigned male at birth doesn’t make me a man or a woman, nobody was born a man or a women, you develop into your preferred gender as you grow up. For me that gender was female. I was born male but my brain, gestures, features and carriage functioned as female.Growing up and not knowing what was happening to my body made me confused and lost. I couldn’t discuss it with my family because my femininity was frowned on due to religion and I could not talk to my friends because they would not understand what I was going through. I found solace in music and dreams.I dreamt of being free to be myself, free of insults, free of judgment and free from harassments.That freedom came when I moved to the United Kingdom, finding girls like me gave me hope of not being alone in my journey of self-discovery.I found out what I went through growing up in Nigeria was quite common with transgendered people. Having freedom, acceptance and knowledge are the key most important elements to a successful transition.Knowing I am not alone in my struggles helped me to reevaluate my views on life and how I should go about my transition wisely. I researched my transition and reconciled the conflicting emotions involved in the process of accepting myself as the woman I am.It is a lonely world during transition, as your body changes so do your emotions, which leads the mind into the darkest path in life. If the chemicals are not professionally controlled, you can feel suicidal due to rejection from loved ones and society.In life perfection doesn’t existent, but for me having the freedom to be my true self feels almost perfect. As a black transgendered woman I am faced with many daily challenges such as transphobia, a complicated love life, poor career prospects and racism. But when I remember my life history, these challenges become water under the bridge.That is why I will always remember those who built this foundation for freedom and knowledge. Also those who never got the chance to enjoy the acceptance we have achieved so far.Transgender Day of Remembrance today (20 November) is particularly import to me because I have lost close friends to suicide and have seen many more wishing to commit suicide as a final fix to their gender dilemma and rejection by society.The media is silent on the subject of transphobia and the effects it has on young transgendered people of today, because they don’t see transgendered people as ‘normal’ members of our community.Remembering my fallen friends helps me to keep their memories alive. It also encourages me to carry on the fight to be respected, understood and accepted for whom I am.I dream of a world where we are given some sort of understanding and tolerance to live peacefully as able, intelligent fellow human beings who make positive contributions to society.Transgendered people are human too. We are your brothers, your sisters, your children, your friends and your lovers. Stop the hate!
Rather a number of commentators and tweeters have pointed to the fact that the proposed Al-Wakrah stadium looks very much like a vagina.
The conservative country has designed what many believe appears to be a giant ode to women’s private parts.
The architects are a little embarrassed that their design looks kinda like a vagina. This is not what the architects intended. Instead, the design is supposed to resemble the sails of a dhow boat which is traditionally used for pearl fishing by Qataris.
This has to be the most hilarious camel toe you've probably ever seen! Although she wore tights during her set, it looked like she was performing nude. See the pics after the cut...
