Ivanka Trump seems to have reached into her Mom’s closet for a recent wedding weekend in Rome. Ivanka wore a glam Bob Mackie cocktail dress her mother donned 28 years ago.

For her visit to the Italian Capital for the wedding ceremony of fashion designer Misha Nonoo and oil heir Michael Hess, Ivanka wore a shiny white, gold and black cocktail dress on the second night of the lavish affair.

The 37-year-old first daughter and White House Adviser sported a swept-back updo, red lipstick and gold strappy heels as accessories in a photo shared to her Instagram story.

The Bob Mackie dress was first worn by Ivana Trump in 1991. Since then, her daughter has borrowed the fringed outfit twice. The first time being a fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra’s wedding in 2014.

Glamourous Affair

The White House first daughter and husband, Jared Kushner, in-laws Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Orlando Bloom, and Katy Perry were some of the 300 guests present at the Nonoo and Hess’ multi-day wedding celebration, held at the classy Villa Aurelia.

Celebrity Tattoos With A Story to Tell

Celebrities love to show off some skin, and if they have some skin to show off, why not add some art to it. The problem begins when you forget that it’s almost permanent. Take Ariana Grande (You’ll see both singers in this list) who made a spelling mistake when tattooing her palm in another language! Or Kelsy Karter who tattooed Harry Styles’ face – on her face!! What was she thinking?! Let’s begin!

Minka Kelly and Her Red Star

This one’s cute. A simple red star at the foot of Minka‘s ankle, to forever match whatever red shoe she will be wearing. When she played the style icon Jackie Kennedy in “The Butler”, she looked so believable that it was only by the tiny little star tattoo that you could tell them apart.

What Was Kate Middleton’s Life Like Before?

At the moment, Kate Middleton is living a life that we can only imagine. She has three gorgeous children, millions of fans and she lives in a palace, married to an actual prince. But that’s quite far from what her life used to be before she joined the royal family.

Although Kate Middleton has always been wealthy, her life is very different now. She used to have what we call a normal life; socializing with friends, spending quality time with family, and enjoying school and work.

It was when she met Prince William at the University of Saint Andrews that her life changed forever. But what exactly did she do before she fell in love and married Prince William?

She Had a Regular Job

Being where she is now, it’s difficult to imagine Kate Middleton waking up early and heading off to work. However, that’s exactly what she used to do.

After graduating from college, she was an accessories buyer for Jigsaw, a British fashion label. Her job consisted of running errands during photo shoots and other administrative responsibilities.

Granted, she only worked three days a week in Jigsaw’s London office because she had to make time to accompany Prince William in all these different events and engagements.

Belle Robinson, the founder of the fashion label was impressed by Kate Middleton and the way she handled the paparazzi. It’s not easy to have a bunch of photographers following you around, even at work, but Middleton seemed unfazed by it, which is quite remarkable.

Belle Robinson also noted that Kate Middleton would always interact with everyone, no matter their level in the company, and she didn’t think of herself as better than everyone else.

She Worked For Her Family’s Company

The Middleton family owns a very successful company called Party Pieces and they sell party supplies. The business started over 30 years ago and it has always been lucrative, thus allowing the family to live a wonderful life.

Kate Middleton was also a part of the company and she worked for them before marrying to Prince William. As a child, she and her sister Pippa were featured in the company’s catalog.

As an adult, she continued to model for catalogs as well as working on their design and production. She also had opportunities in marketing and photography inside the company.

She Lived With Her Sister

Kate Middleton’s current place of residence is nothing other than the Kensington Palace, but before she became a member of British royalty, she lived with her parents, of course. Once she moved out, she lived in a London apartment, which she shared with her sister Pippa.

This apartment was purchased by their parents and it was located in Chelsea, London. The duchess lived there until 2011 when she married Prince William. Her sister, Pippa, and her brother James continued to live in this apartment.

It’s safe to say that Kate Middleton’s life has changed quite a lot, even if she was already living on the privileged side of the specter. Even so, you can’t deny being the wife of a Prince certainly has its benefits.

She used to do what everyone else does, even if they come from wealth; she had a job, responsibilities, she lived with her family, and did all the normal things we do on a daily basis.

That changed forever when she married Prince William and even though she exists like everyone else, her life is much more different to ours than we could ever imagine.

At the moment, Kate Middleton is living a life that we can only imagine. She has three gorgeous children, millions of fans and she lives in a palace, married to an actual prince. But that’s quite far from what her life used to be before she joined the royal...

‘Mushroom Blond’ Hair Is Summer’s Biggest New Trend

The trend of using food to describe our hair colors has grown. Not only do we have toasted coconut, peach cobbler, and cold brew, but the latest trend is having mushroom blond hair. According to Pinterest, this last shade is quickly overtaking the others with searches on the site up by a whopping 308 percent.

Mushrooms may sound a bit bland and boring at first, but from the looks of it, it’s the exact opposite.

Mushrooms colors are soooo interesting!

If you’ve ever studied a mushroom, you’d notice that its colors are multifaceted. You’ll find multiple shades of dark and light brown, even blonde, and the hair color truly reflects those ashy shades you’d find in a mushroom. It’s an in-between color – not quite blonde but not quite brown.

“It’s right in between light brown and dark blond, like an ashier version of brond,” says Stephani Brown, master colorist at New York City’s IGK Salon Soho. As a result, the shade is a great choice for those not wanting a drastically lighter or darker color, yet it gives an edgy, unique look.

“I love the idea of using mushrooms to describe the tone of the hair color,” says Joel Warren, celebrity colorist and founder of the Salon Project. “They have so many different tones of beige and gray that are hard to describe. These tones evolved from the gray and silver trend to a slightly more natural look. The combinations with highlights and low lights gives a beautiful modern look.”

Typically, people want to choose a warmer shade for the summer, but that’s all the reason not to. What better way to stand out than to try something different from the regular? In addition, mushroom blonde is extremely low-maintenance according to Brown.

It’s a more grown-out look which needs a touch up only every three to six months or even up to a full year depending on your hair length. Another reason it’s a great choice for a fun, easy-going hair color this summer!

If you’re considering trying out mushroom blonde for yourself, Brown recommends that you ask your colorist for a subtle light brown or dark blonde ombre that has a variation of both light brown and dark blond pieces.

Be sure to mention the word ashy to keep it from going towards a more traditional blond look. It’s always helpful to bring some photos to give an idea of what exactly you’re going for and to help ensure the product is to your liking.
