Good By Natasya Richardson

Her husband, the actor Liam Neeson, and their two sons, aged 13 and 12, were at her bedside.
Aged 45, she was a member of the Redgrave acting dynasty. She collapsed on Monday after falling during a beginner's lesson on a slope in Quebec.
In a statement, the actress' publicist said: "Liam Neeson, his sons and the entire family were shocked and devastated by the tragic death, but were profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone."
Acclaimed for her performances on stage and screen, Natasha Richardson won a Tony Award for her role as Sally Bowles in Sam Mendes' production of 'Cabaret' on Broadway in 1998.
Her other theatre credits included Eugene O'Neill's 'Anna Christie' and Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' and 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
On the screen her credits included: 'Patty Hearst', 'The Handmaid's Tale', 'The Comfort of Strangers', 'The Parent Trap', 'Maid in Manhattan' and 'Asylum'.
Natasha Richardson was an activist in the fight against AIDS and was on the board of the US-based charity amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.
Paying tribute, a spokesperson for the charity said: "Natasha Richardson was a dedicated AIDS advocate and an eloquent spokesperson for amfAR.
"She generously contributed her time and resources to amfAR for over 15 years.
"Natasha's passion for the cause and tireless efforts gave hope and inspiration to the scientists and healthcare workers on the front lines of this deadly epidemic, as well as to the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS around the world."

Fashion Baby Boom!

Is there something in the water? Because there have been a fashion baby boom! Who recently gave birth? Continue reading to find out.
In case you haven't heard Stella McCartney, vegan designer extroidinaire gave birth to a young girl last week. This will be her fourth child with her publisher husband, Alasdhair Willis. The McCartney clan's newest addition, Reiley, will join brothers, Miller [5] and Beckett [2], and sister, Bailey [3]. All four children were born in London.

McCartney is known for her distaste for using animal products, such as leather, in the making of her clothing. If you are vegan Stella's line is a great option for you. But Stella McCartney wasn't the only fashionista welcoming a beautiful baby into the world.

Nina Garcia, Project Runway judge and fashion director of Marie Claire, has also given birth to a child. This past weekend Nina Garcia gave birth to her second boy, Alexander David Conrad. This will be the second child for Nina Garcia and David Conrad, their other son, Lucas Alexander Conrad was born in early 2007.

Reports say that this will not interfere with Nina's role as judge on the popular Lifetime show, seen above with fellow host Michael Kors. This is a make it work moment. Tim Gunn would be proud.

Both women and babies are doing fine. But while the Hollywood baby boom is starting to show signs of decreasing, babies in the fashion world show no signs of stopping. McCartney and Garcia have our best wishes. Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Jamie Yeo

Singapore television host Jamie Yeo gave birth prematurely to baby daughter Alysia at Gleneagles Hospital on Thursday, reported omy.sg. “I had no idea I was going to give birth, I thought I was just having stomach cramps that whole night,” said Yeo, who was caught completely off guard by the baby’s birth, who came about two and a half months early.
Fortunately, there were no other complications.
“The whole process was very smooth, I didn’t need to be anaesthetised or take painkillers,” said the 33-year-old.
However, due to her premature arrival, Yeo’s 1.2kg bundle of joy will have to spend the next four weeks in hospital.
“She looks so tiny. It really breaks my heart. I’m willing to do anything for her,” said Yeo.
Alysia is Yeo’s first child with husband Englishman Thorsten Nolte, 35, whom she married in a quiet ceremony earlier this year.
Yeo was previously married to radio personality Glenn Ong, 39, until their high-profile separation in 2009. They were married for five years.

Style Highlights: Diane Kruger

This German beauty may look very familiar. She's most known for her role as Dr. Abigail Chase in the National Treasure films. You only have to wait a year for the next film to smash into theathers in the winter of 2011. Only a year. :) That's no wait at all.

But she's the face of Calvin Klein's fragrance line, Beauty. Which is fitting because Diane is drop dead gorgeous. There has to be a reason why she was cast of Helen of Troy in the Brad Pitt film, Troy. And there is also her amazing sense of style.

Diane shimmers in Chanel. Pun intended. There is no doubt that this dress wasn't the perfect dress for her to wear to this occasion. As a personal friend to Karl Lagerfeld, he has to feel a personal responsibility to make her look effortless. Next, Diane looks a bit casual in a fun button down with a menswear bow-tie. Except not in the usual place one would expect a bow.

Diane pairs her diagnollay striped dress with the perfect unexpected assessory. And no I'm not her man but rather than hot pink clutch. She decided to sweep her long blonde hair into a simple bun with a few wisps left free. In the next look the atherial feel of the dress will make any fashionista sigh. Its fitted top and loose skirt is just stunning! And those chunky shoes with intriquate cutoutts are beautiful.

I'm really excited because I have just been in a blogging spree. This is the third complete post that I've written today. One of them I'll save for tomorrow but I decided that I'd post two today. I know! That's crazy, right? I don't think I've ever posted two in one day. So this is a Viva la Fashion first. Continue down for a post about supermodel Karlie Kloss.

Behind the Runway with Karlie Kloss

 I know we all like to think that models just pop up at the begining of the runway with perfect hair and perfect clothing. With little to no preperation. We all know its not true but most of us don't know what goes on behind the scenes. What do models do for hours--while they're getting their hair and makeup done? While they're waiting for the show to begin?

Well, here's a look behind the scenes with Karlie Kloss. One of my favorties! :)

Here's a fun video I found on Teen Vogue's account on Youtube. :) She seems so down to eart and cool. Want to know Karlie's winter weather essential? It's not what you think.

Bye, guys! I'll talk to you soon. :) Who should I blog about next? Suggestions are warmly welcomed!

Alena Seredova

Alena was born on March 21, 1978, in Prague, Czech Republic. Her modeling career started at the age of 15. Five years later, she was named Miss Czech Republic. This launched Alena’s international modeling career and opened the door for her to act as cohost for Italian comedian Giorgio Panariello in 2002. Her successful turn on this show enabled her to act as cohost on a few other shows in Italy.

Alena’s popularity in Italy spawned more opportunities. She scored her acting debut in 2003 with Vincenzo Salemme’s Ho visto le stelle (I Have Seen the Stars), and followed this up with a role in 2004’s Christmas in Love.

In 2005, Alena was chosen to pose in Max Calendar and was the object of affection for countless men who undoubtedly drooled over the 12, far-too-short months of the year.
