Model Material?

 With a mother like Katie Holmes, and Tom Cruise for a father, it was a no brainer that little Suri Cruise would be absolutely beautiful Since her birth six years ago on April 18th, the media has been fascinated by this little girl and her incredible personality. Every time she is seen in pictures, she seems very happy and well taken care of. I'm more impressed with the fact that her parents have not exploited her innocence or her beauty. It's clear that she has the beauty to be thrust on the pages of magazines, but instead they are just letting her be a sweet little child. Suri seems to have embraced the life of a mini celebrity, and we all get to sit back and purr over her beauty. HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY SURI CRUISE!

Red Bottom Obsession

 I will never forget getting all dressed up back home in Perrine, a small town in the heart of Miami, Florida, for Trina's video shoot. "What song is she making the video for?" I asked a friend. While being told the name of her upcoming song, I can remember being mesmerized by this well dressed woman walking past me surrounded by bodyguards and her entire entourage. She had on a pair of Christian Loubotins, making it very clear why this shoe deserved so much attention. They were beautiful. Fast forward to the present, and there seems to be a Loubotin take over. Despite the fact that Christian Louboutin first came out with the style in the 1990s, "red bottoms" have exploded on the hollywood scene. Some of everybody is being seen wearing this very popular brand. So much so, that another company,  Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) had to bite a piece of the pie. Reportedly the two companies even went to court on this issue. Loubotin claims that YSL owed them close to $1million in damages and also demanded that their red bottom shoes be stopped! A judge ruled in the favor of YSL and so the fight continues. Whatever the outcome is, everyone is sure to get their hands on this popular shoe designed to elongate the woman's legs, and enhance their sophistication. Men want in too? Well there is a free for all, for all involved. Christian Loubotins can also be ordered as a red bottom sneaker. Tell me that's not Great marketing.
