Lebanese Beauty: Miss Lebanon 2014 Saly Greige
Three weeks ago on Sunday October 5th, the 2014 Miss Lebanon beauty pageant was held and Lebanon crowned a new beauty queen. The winner was 24 year-old 1.72 M (5' 8") tall Saly Greige. Saly will now get to represent her country at the upcoming "Miss World 2014" in London, UK.

Now, normally, this pageant would go unnoticed by yours truly (and it did for almost a month!) until...I did some web research about writing a blog on pageants in the lead up to the Miss World 2014 Finals in December and I saw the fact that all fourteen of its contestants wore Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Haute Couture for the Evening Gown Competition! It's not every day in the Pageant World that one sees actual Haute Couture as part of the Evening Gown competition. Normally, we're looking at polyester gowns that were bought at the local Prom-and-Pageant shop for under $500. So, yes, this was a treat, to say the least...

2014 Hilton HHonors Skate America international figure skating competition occurred this past weekend. I did not attend since I had to work, hosting a fabulous Macy's "Fashion Rocks" event in Houston Texas (I'll have a blog recap of that here soon!), but now that I am back home, I have found the time to watch the Ladies and Men's on NBC today and subsequently, do some my Figure Skating Costume BLOG Commentary here.
If you are a fan of Figure Skating, you may already know that Skate America is the first of six events in the 2014-2015 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating international competition circuit. Skate America 2014 was held at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
Here are some of my Men's Costume Highlights (and some Low ones) from this past weekend's competition. First up: the Men! Starting with Jason Brown from the US:

Project Runway Season 13 has come to an end.....and it is amazing that it has survived almost 10 years and so many seasons and somehow, in the twilight of it's run, it is getting some of the best ratings in the history of the series. It looks like there will be plenty more seasons to come!
