It may be the most political New York Fashion Week ever (feminist tees, Women`s March organizers, pink Planned Parenthood buttons and white bandanas), but that hasn`t clouded the sunny optimism of the season`s hottest hue — yellow.

Could it be fashion is experiencing its own La La Land effect?

All week, designers have been sending models down the runway in knockout yellow long prom dresses, reminiscent of the hand-painted style worn by Emma Stone on the film musical`s poster, a look that has also inspired some of Hollywood`s top red-carpet stylists this awards season.

At Monday night’s combined Oscar de la Renta/Monse show, creative directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia showed happy Technicolor fashions, including two asymmetrical draped canary silk and velvet Monse looks. Joseph Altuzarra`s marigold velvet dress conveyed a hopeful spirit, as did Prabal Gurung`s lemony looks — the standout a long-sleeve dress with a gathered keyhole neck — the dessert, perhaps, that came out before his tear-jerker feminist march finale.

At Calvin Klein`s melancholy show, a ray of sunshine came in the form of a plastic covered yellow-gold fur coat, while Cedric Charlier’s fall 2017 lineup was the most sanguine of all, featuring yellow pops throughout.

Wednesday’s Delpozo collection featured a bevy of colorful stripes, but it was the off-the-shoulder canary and violet tulle confection that lit up social media.

Designers should make their voices heard, but it doesn`t hurt to brighten the landscape with a momentary escape, either. For more yellow on the runway, scroll through the gallery below.

With filming for the first season of NBC’s breakout drama “This Is Us” done-and-dusted, actress Mandy Moore hopped a flight to New York to catch a few fashion shows and try to restore some sense of normality.

The Golden Globe-nominated actress’ career has accelerated in recent months due to her role as “Rebecca,” a blindingly frank mother of three, in the popular series that has a non-linear narrative. With events in the characters’ lives transpiring out-of-order, viewers inevitably have questions not only about the timeline, but also the progression of their own lives.

pics:white formal dresses

Before Lela Rose’s luncheon and fashion show at Loring Place Monday, Moore talked about how the show’s undercurrent of time is playing out in others’ lives. “What we’re doing is inherently about family. I hope that people are able to watch the show and identify bits and pieces of themselves, and the challenges and obstacles that they face. I know it’s helped people at least to start to have conversations that maybe they wouldn’t necessarily have,” she said. “That kind of speaks to the power of the medium of television and film.”

As much as she likes “being part of something that feels important and timely,” Moore said, “just being part of something that feels hopeful in this days and age” makes her feel very proud. As one of the more visible celebrity supporters of last month’s Women’s March, Moore said she is looking to her peers to see what the next steps are. Having first found fame as musician, she was part of the celebrity-studded “Fight Song” that aired at last summer’s Democratic National Committee.

“I think all of us don’t really have a choice to sit back. We can’t not be political any more. We don’t have a choice. We don’t have the option necessarily,” Moore said. “It’s our duty to step up and keep ourselves as informed and educated as we can stand to be. Because sometimes it’s easier to stick your head in the sand. So I’m trying day-by-day to put one foot in front of the other.”

Having appeared as “Rapunzel” in the 2010 film “Tangled,” Moore will also be part of the series by the same name that makes its debut on the Disney Channel on March 10. (“This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman also wrote the movie “Tangled.”) Even though she grew up in Orlando, her ties to Disney were previously zilch. “It is so much fun. I feel like a little piece of that character lives inside of me — her spunk and her zest for life and her sense for adventure and fearlessness. I get to sing and be reunited with everybody that I worked with on the film.”

Her singing career took off at the age of 14, thanks to a FedEx driver who heard her in a Florida studio and later shared her music with a friend at A&R at Epic Records. “I am very grateful to them for jump-starting my career‚ for sure,” she said.

Taking a breather from the time travel that her role on “This Is Us” requires, Moore, whose divorce from Ryan Adams was finalized in June, was very much in the present Monday. “We just wrapped the show Friday and I’m trying to find some sense for normalcy again. I just came here immediately to be with my friends. We’re going to have a little bit of a girls’ week, take in some fashion shows [Marchesa, Marc Jacobs and Naeem Khan] and eat good food.”

Valentine’s Day is upon us, which means it’s high time to treat that important person in your life… You. By Roe McDermott

This Valentine’s Day, we’re all about giving yourself the present of self-care and self-confidence, whatever form that takes. And if someone else enjoys how you look while you wear your present, well that’s a bonus, but really, quite beside the point.

pics:plus size prom dresses

Though we are sticking to one Valentine’s Day tradition: lingerie and loungewear. We believe that if you’re going to wear underwear all day, or PJs – hey, we don’t judge, who hasn’t done an all-day PJ Netflix binge? – you better feel damn good in them.

And what better way to treat yourself than by buying yourself underwear that’s also a fashion accessory? Thanks to the spring collections’ promise that crop tops and vests aren’t going anywhere, gorgeous bras and bralettes aren’t just underwear anymore – the detailing on them can instantly become an ensemble amplifier. Multiple straps, lace detailing and high necked bras can all add some sexy snap to a simple outfit, just by letting the detailing peek through vests and tops. Remember: straps add edge, lace adds femininity, so balance your outfits accordingly!

But even if you won’t be showing them off, wearing gorgeous bras and underwear can make you feel extra confident – and we all know that confidence is the key to making any outfit look like a million bucks. Make sure you’re wearing the right size so there’s no bulging or visible lines and get ready to turn every path into a catwalk.

Or maybe you’re feeling more like snoozing than strutting, and that’s fine too – but you still deserve some gorgeous PJs! Silk loungewear and robes will add some well-deserved luxury to your bedtime routine, and let you look at yourself first thing in the morning and think, “Hell yes, I really did wake up like this.”

If you prefer sweatpants to silk robes and feeling comfy instead of couture, we’ve also got you covered. Get ready for a day of junk food, pedicures and your favourite childhood movies in cosy onesies, cotton PJs and short sets emblazoned with your favourite cartoon and pop culture characters. Sometimes self-love involves passionate debate with your best friends about which Harry Potter house you all belong in, and you need PJs to highlight your lifelong loyalty to that Hufflepuff life. We understand, and accept you, even if we’re totally Ravenclaw ourselves. We still think you’re great. See? That’s real love, right there.

With one of the most stunning views of Chicago as a backdrop, four couples got married or renewed their vows Sunday atop the Skydeck of the Willis Tower.

The couples won the second annual "Love on the Edge" contest ahead of Valentine`s Day for the rare opportunity.

"I feel like I`m on top of the world," said newly married Lara Robinson.

Her husband added: "Very surreal, it feels like a dream."

Each couple submitted video entries that showed why they should win a wedding atop Chicago`s most iconic landmark.

For groom David Castillo, wedding jitters were turned up because he is also afraid of heights.

"I made the mistake of looking down when I first stepped out," Castillo said.

At 103 floors up, Castillo said he was comforted by the sight of his lovely bride.

Kathy and Denis Kendall renewed their vows to celebrate 26 years of marriage.

"We didn`t have a big wedding, we just got married in the courthouse 26 years ago. I saw this opportunity and it was just beautiful," Kathy Kendall said.

Red roses decorated the white runner for the couples` private ceremony for close family and friends.

"It`s like a storybook wedding it`s a dream come true," said bride Jennifer Canales.

Spring 2017 is coming up soon, and it’s introducing many new trends. It is bringing back old trends, as well as keeping some existing trends that are already in style.

The new styles introduced during the fashion weeks’ in Paris and New York City consist of many trends that might seem strange to people. They include over exposed clothing, corsets, ties and strings in odd places and every type of slit you could possibly think of. We have seen celebrities rocking the sheer outfits and corsets which soon made their way to the runway. Designers are adding straps to the bottoms of shirts to wrap around one’s stomach, straps to wrap down arms at different lengths, even at the bottom of athletic leggings.

Some “blasts from the past” trends are making an appearance this spring as well. These consist mostly of trends from the ‘80s. These lucky trends say to wear bright neon colors, bold colored stripes… well, any kind of stripe. They are also bringing back ruffles on sleeves and prom dresses 2017, almost on anything. Don’t forget to try some extremely oversized clothing with an extra baggy look. This could be something like a buttoned down shirt being worn as dress. Extra-large sleeves, bell bottoms, extra-extra-large earings and bags are huge, so any item of clothing that is oversized is a perfect look to go for. The glam of the 80s is making its way back into our lives and who couldn’t be happy.

The already existing and thriving trends that will continue on this spring include, of course, the never-ending trend of the choker. The edgy destroyed outfit and pastel pinks and khakis seem to be going strong as they continue into a new year. The trend makes sporty looks, tube tops and anything off the shoulder stay in style and hopefully will forever. As for your feet, don’t worry because the strappy sandals and platform sandals that everyone loved last spring and summer are still going to be put to use this coming spring.

Rock a wardrobe that has every shade of yellow, blue, pink and some khaki this coming season. Dress with a look of elegance mixed with a dash of rebel for a street look. Last, don’t forget that any necklace from a choker to a thirty-inch pendant chain can help complete any outfit! Keep your outfits bright and bold, and keep the ‘80s in mind because they may be taking over the world of fashion.

Q: What if you’re comfortable with your personal style, but it’s so out of whack with the norms of the area where you live that it makes you uneasy? I wear a lot of colorful and wacky prom dresses 2017. And when I lived in Austin or Los Angeles, this was fine and normal. In the Midwest, however, it sometimes feels ... odd. I feel as if I’m forced to choose between dressing in a way that makes me comfortable while standing out in a way I don’t want to, or wearing clothes that really don’t feel like me while blending in. Any suggestions?

A: I’d love to shout, “Wear whatever you want! Naysayers be damned!” Some folks are able to happily and wholly prioritize personal style preferences over cultural norms, and kudos to them for their enviable confidence. But it sounds like you’re uncomfortable with people scrutinizing your bright, funky dresses. Balancing personal preferences with environmental pressures is something many of us wish to do. It’s a natural human instinct.

So try examining the individual pieces that people around you are wearing. Which ones resonate with you? Are you drawn to their blazers, cardigans, heels or button-front shirts? Are there ways to mix these items with looks that feel more you, creating a hybrid of sorts? If that tactic falls flat, consider creating a color palette: If you favor brights but the Twin Cities palette seems neutral-heavy, can you experiment with more bright/neutral mixes? Whatever the case, finding your way to a hybrid is probably the best solution.

Q: I’d love some advice for women who are hard on their clothes. I’m a stay-at-home mom who spends a lot of time outdoors with kids and dogs, in the garden, in the kitchen, making art, etc. I have a lot of fun, funky clothes in my wardrobe that have been relegated to “special occasions only” because they end up stained and torn if I wear them on a daily basis. How do you build a wardrobe of clothing that can take a beating? I’d like to wear more than just jeans and T-shirts.

A: My main advice would be this: thrift. Anything you buy that’s used and cheap won’t cause as much sorrow, especially when the family makes mincemeat of it. Search for skinny jeans with stretch or funky colored cords, embellished tees, versatile cargo jackets for layering, durable and washable blouses. Seek out quality fabrics and well-made goods at thrift and consignment shops and you’ll get cute looks for a lot less.

Any woman who does work that is potentially messy and damaging to clothing but is also extremely active needs closefitting tops that allow her to move. Jersey knit garments are your best bets since sweaters are easily snagged by, say, puppy teeth. Or an overzealous tot. So scour your local thrift store for printed long-sleeved tees, tees with subtle embellishments (preferably near the neckline), patterned/striped/polka-dotted tees, and tees in bright, vibrant colors. Try layering to make more interesting outfits — a deep-V long-sleeved tee over a contrasting tank top, a long-sleeved tee under a short-sleeved one, a fun tee peeking out from a crinkly cotton button-down with the sleeves rolled up.

If you’re willing to invest in a few nicer pieces, scope out vendors who cater to athletic women such as Title 9, prAna and Athleta. Sport-specific garments are their bread and butter, but these companies also sell more fashion-forward “lifestyle” clothes made from the same durable, washable fabrics and with the same quality construction.

Finally, check 6pm.com and Amazon.com for funky, inexpensive boots and ankle booties. Closed-toe shoes are a must and I believe that styled correctly, boots can be worn pretty much year-round. Invest in a few pairs of cheap but interesting boots to round out your durable but stylish wardrobe.

Q: I own several long-sleeved dresses, all very work-appropriate and originally purchased with fall and winter in mind. Unfortunately, the dresses become super staticky when worn with tights. And that makes for uncomfortable workdays. I have a similar problem with several of my knee-length professional skirts. Help! Do you have any tips for eliminating static with tights?

A: I do, though none are especially groundbreaking.

Static can be a bear during the winter months, and it becomes especially relentless when the air is dry. Which means that adding moisture of any kind will help: If your skirt is sticking to your tights, simply dampening your hands with water and patting your thighs will — at least temporarily — keep fabrics from clinging. Depending on the delicacy of your tights (and your willingness to carefully hand-launder them), you can also try a bit of hand lotion mixed with a drop or two of water. Again, pat the mixture onto the tights where they’re causing friction and you’ll have a longer-lasting static repellent than water alone.

But honestly? I advise keeping a can of Static Guard on-hand. You can spray the stuff fairly liberally on both tights and clothes, and it tends to keep the cling at bay for a couple of hours in all but the most Sahara-like environments. (Avoid using it on super-delicate fabrics like silk and satin.)

And if either skirt or prom dresses 2016 is made from a relatively heavy material, a half-slip works wonders. Layered under slinky jersey knits, it’ll just add to the wad of material nestled near your nether regions. But with wool, twill and most ponte knits, a half-slip creates the perfect slippery barrier between tights and skirt.

Suwannee High School updated their prom dress guidelines to not allow two-piece prom dresses 2017 this year.

According to Principal Malcolm Hines, the policy was changed after problems the school faced last year with two-piece dresses.

Hines said he understands some students have already purchased dresses.

“We will work with the kids,” Hines said.

Students can present Hines a picture of their dress for approval on a case-by-case basis.

He said he does not want students to wear two-piece dresses that show their midriff.

“I want the community and the school to be proud of what our young ladies look like,” Hines said.

Hines also acknowledged that the guidelines came out later than planned and promised next year the guidelines will be out in August.

The prom dress guidelines for Suwannee High School states the dress must have a modest neckline and cover enough of the back so that it does not give the “impression” of a “totally” backless dress. Strapless or spaghetti strapped dresses must be of a cut or design so that they represent a modest impression. Dresses must be long enough so that they meet the length standard of the SHS dress code. Dresses with slits must be slit no higher than mid-thigh. See through or revealing material should not be worn. Two-piece dresses are not allowed.

You don’t play Erica Kane on All My Children for 41 years (with all the attendant events and Emmys ceremonies that entails) without amassing a sizable wardrobe of designer clothing. But at some point, even the most fabulous divas with the biggest closets have to part with some of their favorite pieces to make room for more clothes. And of course, she has to unload her items in a suitably glamorous way. Starting March 1, the actress will be auctioning off more than 300 of her personal items, from housewares to purses to designer gowns, on Everything But the House. All items will start at $1, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit UCP of NYC, a nonprofit that assists children and adults who have cerebral palsy.

So now that you’ve set your calendar alert, what should you be getting psyched for over the coming month? In addition to items like china and couches, there are hundreds of items straight from her closet, including a gold lamé Anne Klein jumpsuit, Chanel bag, Miu Miu heels and sheer black gown she wore to the Daytime Emmys in 1993 (see her wearing it here!), all pictured below.

Also on the block: a vintage blue lamé 2017 prom dresses she wore to a 1990 gala, the sherbet-colored Escada Couture ballgown she wore to the 1998 Daytime Emmys, a red Christian Lacroix gown she wore to a ball in 1993, and the Gucci coat and slinky white dress she’s pictured in, above. And all of it can be yours to swan around in starting March 1 on Everything But the House.

A bride and her family escaped from their village on the day of the wedding, leaving the groom heart-broken.

pics:green prom dresses uk

The groom Bilawal from Mirzapur had married his wife Parveen 15 years ago. The marriage was to take place formally on Saturday after the girl had come of age. In a traditional ‘Watta Satta’ ceremony Bilawal’s sister Rubina had married the bride’s brother.

When the groom wearing a brand new Sherwani reached the bride’s village her family demanded that another marriage between the two families should take place. When no such agreement was reached, the bride and her family sped away from the village through the backdoor of their house.

The angry groom staged a protest outside the bride’s house. He refused to leave the house without bride.

Bilawal claims that he had paid Rs75,000 to the bride’s family as part of the wedding expenses. “I want my bride back,” he said.

It’s certainly tough to keep track as to what the real story is between one of the entertainment world’s most adorable couples. The rumors are constantly swirling about Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton alleging that the two are engaged and getting married, and even some rumors suggesting that the “No Doubt” front-woman is already expecting a child with the country singer.

The latest rumor is that Gwen and Blake are calling off their wedding, but this can’t be even the slightest bit true because reliable sources close to the stars indicate that the pair, who met as co-judges on the hit show The Voice, were never planning a wedding to begin with.

pics:prom dresses 2016

Extra relays the details about these false claims and how the facts of the matter have surfaced.

“Despite a tabloid report, Gwen Stefani did not call off marrying Blake Shelton. In fact, there was not a wedding to call off, since the couple is not planning — yet — to tie the knot! Furthermore, the false reports claim that the ‘The Voice’ coach is pregnant and that Blake has moved out of the couple’s home, saying, ‘The tension between them has reached a boiling point. Shortly after the holidays, Gwen was thinking of calling off the wedding entirely.`”As the publication shares, Gossip Cop has verified that the rumor is fabricated and that ” Stefani’s reps [share] that she is not pregnant, nor has she called off the non-existent wedding.” So what is really going on with the star couple?

Reports have been made that Gwen and Blake are geared up for a big Super Bowl party again this year. The two have been spotted in Sherwood, California after having made a stop into a local supermarket for tasty treats to celebrate the anticipated annual sporting event. CB Pop Culture shares details about the star sighting.

“It looks like A-list couple Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are already ramped up and ready to cheer on the new England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The Voice judges were photographed in Sherwood, Ca. outside of their local Ralph’s supermarket, after having loaded up several carts full of snacks and drinks, that almost certainly scream ‘Super Bowl Party!`”The pair looked as adorable as ever in matching denim ensembles while Gwen’s youngest son Apollo joined on the party-prep errand.

January 25, 2017Gwen and Blake met while filming The Voice back in late summer of 2015 and admitted to a new romance only a couple of months later. Both Stefani and Shelton were coming through difficult divorces from their exes and found support from one another during the trying time. The rest is history as the couple has been solid and regularly gushed about one another to the media ever since.

A recent cute exchange between the talented couple happened on a clip that previews the upcoming season of The Voice. Gwen and Blake joke about hooking up, as ET shares.

“I just did a country song with Blake Shelton,” Stefani says. “I got the hookup!”

Gwen then adds, “I don’t feel like there’s any kind of boundaries,” Stefani adds. “So anything can go.” As for the most romantic day of the year, which is fast approaching, Blake did admit that he isn’t the best about planning for such occasions, as the publication shares after posing the question to the singer at the People’s Choice Awards recently.

“I’m one of those guys that’s always last minute, like, ‘Oh dammit. It’s here, it’s here!’ Get some flowers or something. I’m not good at planning surprises when it comes to Valentine’s Day,” he confessed, “but we’ll definitely celebrate.”

South star Tamannaah Bhatia, who has acted in a string of Tamil and Telugu films and is widely known for her role in the 2015 mega hit film Baahubali recently made an appearance in a lilac outfit for a photo shoot for Filmfare magazine. Now as much as we would like to cheer the 27-year-old for having experimented with her make-up – matching lipstick too! – we simply can’t.

Purple lips last made headlines when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wore it to the Cannes Film Festival and faced a lot of flak on social media for it. Is Bhatia following her footsteps now? If yes, the road looks extremely bumpy.

Dressed in the purple Dolly J jacket green prom dress, the actress paired a pair of nude Christian Louboutin stilettos with it. To be fair, the dress has a nice silhouette and fits her well, and as a stand-alone colour, it’s quite lovely, but it’s the bizarre over-the-top make-up which completely throws us off.

Bhatia accented her eyes with green glittery eye-shadow and wore a dark purple lip shade. Unless kitsch was the intent of the look, we’re not sure what was going on the mind of the actress or her make-up artist. Even her hair – which she had straightened out – looked flat and listless. With all green and shades of purple well covered on her person, Bhatia decided to add a shade of maroon to her nails.

As if the make-up wasn’t enough, the white fur peeking out at the hemline looks as if someone stuffed a chicken under the purple prom dresses, and that can never be nice!

Thumbs up or thumbs down? Tell us your views in the comments below.

Later, she was also spotted wearing a frilly pink top, black tights and matching black pumps with the same make-up and hair.

While the phrases ‘pageant dresses’ and ‘prom dresses’ are often used interchangeably, the two are actually different. Pageant gowns are tighter and are designed with perfect pumps, and pageant prom dresses london are costlier than prom dresses as well. Typically, pageant dresses have more beading and costlier materials such as crinoline. Since these dresses need to be designed perfectly, high level of artistry and craftsmanship is required so that the users do not trip over or tug at the top during walking on the ramp. Since pageant dresses are high-end clothing products, it becomes almost impossible for the average buyers to find and buy cheap girls pageant dresses online..

However, fashionable women who do not want to settle for anything less than the best can now find cheaper alternatives online. There are ecommerce stores that have effectively kept the manufacturing costs low, and these stores always offer big discounts so as to gain competitive advantage in the market.

Angela Clayton, 19, spends her days lost in eras bygone, designing and sewing grey prom dresses that look straight out of a Jane Austen novel or a 16th-century portrait. She also models the creations on her Web sites (including AngelaClayton.Crevado.com).

The teen, who was home-schooled, is self-taught in design, pattern-making and sewing. Her YouTube tutorials have hundreds of thousands of views and earn her cash to pay for materials. Clayton has made more than 50 dresses, but saved only 30, discarding ones she doesn’t think are good enough.

She started three years ago after watching TV’s “The Borgias.” “I fell in love with the costumes and decided to re-create them,” she said.

Clayton, who lives with her parents, hopes to design costumes for movies and theater. Her dream job, however, is out of reach: “I would like to be a dressmaker to kings and queens in Renaissance times.”

Although Clayton never saw the 2015 movie, set at the end of the Victorian era, she was influenced by an exhibition of its costumes. “My dress is based on a pattern in a magazine from the 1890s,” she said of the look, which took about $70 and three weeks to complete. “Everyone hates watching historical shows [and movies] with me. I’ll say, ‘There’s a button [on that silver prom dresses], but it should be an eyelet!’ ”

While Clayton counts Sandy Powell, the Oscar-winning costume designer behind the 2015 live-action “Cinderella” movie, as an influence, she modeled this gown — on which she worked a week and spent just $40 — on the animated classic. Though the teen wants to design such looks for film herself, Clayton said she has decided not to go to college because there isn’t a program she’s found that encapsulates all her interests. For now, she has a very important collaborator: Her dad is usually her photographer.

Clayton copied the painting by Raphael and Giulio Romano for this ensemble, which took around 35 hours to complete. It was her first attempt at millinery: “I do love the hats,” Clayton said. “They are always what I am happiest to wear.”

This weekend, we attended a wedding, mounted and staged by The Pirate Stage Company LLC, at the Cypress Manor at Cary. No indication was made, as we gathered in the rustic-appearing venue, that we were attending anything other than a regular old wedding between two young Italian-American lovebirds.

The funniest thing about Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is that it is not a wedding at all. It is a marvelous, interactive, and improvisational entertainment. Guests and the wedding party are, in fact, almost peers in this show.

pics:prom dresses liverpool

The “actors” are some very fine performers whom you may recognize; but you won’t find a quiet moment to speak to any of them during the show, because these guys never break character. Moreover, their skill is further demonstrated as they smoothly slip in and out of learnt lines and spontaneous lines. It is safe to say that there is always something oddball and interesting happening, sometimes near you and sometimes far enough away that you can’t tell what it is. That’s okay, because something will happen near you soon enough.

Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, which is a form of “interactive environmental comedy,” enjoyed a 22-year run at Off-Broadway theaters in Greenwich Village, NYC. After the “wedding guests” (the audience) are seated in the “chapel” area of Cypress Manor at Cary, the show gets off to a raucous start, with squabbles among the bridal party, groomsmen, and families. A rambling priest (Brian Westbrook as Father Mark), very pregnant maid of honor (Alexandra.Finazzo as Connie) funny old granny (Nan L. Stephenson as Grandma Nunzio), bridesmaid and groom (A.C. Donohue as Donna and Brett Yates as Tony), smooching frantically as they move down the aisle, and an obviously hostile wedding crasher — the univited ex-boyfriend (Nicholas Sheets as Michael Just) of the bride (Lauren Tompkins as Tina) — all “tip us” to the deep vein of comedy that will be mined. After the already tipsy priest mangles verses from First Corinthians and a family member nun Ecclesiastes a family member who is a nun (Natalie Turgeon as Sister Albert Maria) demonstrates some decidedly un-nun-like behavior, Tina’s former boyfriend offers a rather coarse response when the priest asks whether anyone objects to these nuptuals.

The ceremony ends in much hilarity; and the principals line up to greet the guests, which again includes the kind of camaraderie that one would expect at a wedding reception. We are then led to our tables for cocktails, buffet dinner, zany entertainment, dancing, and cake cutting.

Wild dancing is enjoyed by many, including your elderly reviewers, doing line dancing, the macerena, “YMCA,” the chicken dance, and “Who Let the Dogs Out”; but we did avoid the limbo. Also, the floor becomes crowded as women celebrate Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.”

Donny Dolce (Kevin Roberge), the frantically energetic master of ceremonies, hosts us through a Champagne March, the toast to the new couple (interrupted by a couple of small food fights) and the introduction of performances by talented family members. Club owner and overall Don of the evening, Vinnie Black (Bill Andrews), serenades us with well-known Italian-American favorites reminiscent of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and then invites us all to join him as he sings “Santa Lucia.”

An excellent buffet of ziti and a meat ball, with a crisp green salad and a fine dinner roll, is provided. The movement of tables through the line is handled with alacrity, courtesy of Mamma Mia! Italian Bistro.

The evening ends with the cutting and passing around of slices of a huge, three-tier wedding cake that gives rise to the weightiness of the evening. All in all, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is a joyful, unexpected, and carefree entertainment, that the group The Pirate Stage Company have worked very hard to accomplish and is well worth the price and time. It may well evoke memories of weddings that you have attended.

Are Evan Bass and Carly Waddell wedding planning? While the BIP couple hasn`t decided when or where to get married, the stars looked adorable together in a new photo.

Evan and Carly welcomed some other Bachelor stars to Nashville this week. And they posed for a cute Instagram photo with BIP co-stars Amanda Stanton, Lace Morris, Jen Saviano, and Wells Adams. "Surprisingly, no one was injured or stolen away during the taking of this photo," Evan captioned the pic below.

Of course, Amanda, Lace, Jen, Carly and Evan all made it to the finale of Bachelor In Paradise Season 3. Jen and Nick Viall broke up on BIP, and he went on to become the next Bachelor. Amanda and Lace then got engaged to Josh Murray and Grant Kemp, respectively. But both of those couples have since broken up.

Evan and Carly, however, are still going strong. They are living together in Nashville and even appeared in the Property Brothers` new music video.

So fans are wondering when Carly and Evan will get married. "We haven`t set a date yet, but it will be this year!" Evan recently told ET.

Carly has even started looking at wedding locations in Napa Valley. But the BIP couple still has to work out a lot of the details. And that means deciding whether or not to get married on TV. "It’s on the table," Evan said. "That’s just one of those things that we have to just like work through."

Carly and Evan do know that many of their Bachelor friends will be involved in the ceremony. Wells, Jade Tolbert, and Juelia Kinney will be in the wedding party, while Chris Harrison, Vinny Ventiera, and Nick Viall will also be invited. But in general, Carly isn`t obsessing about her wedding plans.

"I told Evan, I was like, `Whatever you want to do. You find out what you want to do, and I`ll plan it,"` she said. "I`ve never been that girl that`s like, `This is my dress, these are my flowers,` I don`t care. Like, I would marry him in a courthouse and be fine."

Do you think Evan and Carly will get married this year? Let us know your take in the comments section below!

Whether you know her simply as That Girl, an outspoken feminist and ally of Gloria Steinem, for her hit TV show cameos, her comedic turns in films like Deuce Bigalow, or simply the mom of Rachel Green on Friends, Marlo Thomas has had a pretty spectacular professional trajectory. And at 79 years old, the actress shows no signs of slowing down now. In addition to her still vibrant career and work on behalf of St. Jude’s, Thomas is now pursuing a very different dream, launching her own clothing line collection in conjunction with HSN, which she’ll show off Thursday night on “The List With Colleen Lopez” from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. So what makes That Woman right for this moment in her life?

“When I started That Girl [in 1966], which was the first independent working girl on television, it brought a whole fashion revolution,” she tells PEOPLE. “The women on television like Lucille Ball and Elizabeth Montgomery and Donna Reed, they were all wearing house prom dresses uk and Peter Pan collars. And I had been in London doing Barefoot in the Park, so I brought all the Mary Quant stuff, the fishnet stockings, the mini, the midi, the graphic designs, it really was an explosion of fashion. And [my character Ann Marie] became a fashion icon, she really did.”

But she found that that same ’60s panache is lacking in clothes for middle-aged women. “Women always say to me, Why aren’t there more clothes for women over 40 that are sexy and zippy and like you’ve always been?” she says. “And it’s true, you know, you go to a store and you’ve got bare midriffs and dresses so short you can see your butt and it’s like, What am I going to wear? I either have a choice of looking like my granddaughter or my grandmother. So I thought, I’m just going to do it myself.”As for the name, she explains, “The reason I wanted to call it That Woman is that I really do think that the girl we are, the girl we were, is still in us. I don’t think of myself as an older woman. I think of myself as exactly the same person I was as a girl. And I do bring that into my life, I bring it into every project that I do, I bring it into the way I prom dress shops, how I exercise. Everything that I do in my life is really done from who I’ve always been. And I think a lot of women that I meet are kind of stuck, they don’t know how to be another age: How do I still look desirable and with-it and trendy without looking like I’m trying to be too young? They don’t want to be silly looking. So that’s what this line is all about.”

While the weather outside may still be frightful and our wardrobes in deep freeze mode, new spring fashions are popping up in stores and online, tempting us to think about sunnier days ahead. (And getting to the gym!) Here is a sneak peek at what you will want to put in your shopping carts now.

—Short shorts. Yes, I know you may get goose bumps when you read this one, but get ready. If you`ve got the legs for them, this is your moment. These are not your typical "Daisy Dukes," but more like hot pants reminiscent of old Hollywood, when stars lounged around the pool in high-waisted boy shorts. When worn with the new bra tops, visions of vintage bathing beauties are not far away. When topped off with tailored jackets, short shorts give new meaning to the phrase "bare necessities."

—Statement sleeves. Sleeves are the new erogenous zone of the season, adding even more style to the cold shoulder trend of last year that continues right into the new year. Sleeves are longer, they are belled, cuffed, ruffled and embroidered. Now this is one spring trend we can all wrap our arms around.

—The slouchy pants. The wide-legs strut their stuff this spring in both long and cropped flowing silhouettes. To keep it all under control, designers focus on the waist, cinching it in with either a drawstring or belted jacket to balance the proportion on top. These wider pants look best with chunkier shoes. So get ready for platforms to make a return!

—Lots of leather. Don`t put your leather jackets up just yet. Leather has become a year-round staple in our wardrobes. And it`s not just wearing your cropped top under your leather bomber when the weather warms up. This spring and summer, designers have softened up leather in strapless dresses and feminine blouses that are the height of the chic on the cocktail circuit. The leather moto jacket hit the runway paired with slinky slip dresses and evening gowns, too. Leather ankle boots are also stepping out all year — in spring, team them with short skirts and shorts...and bare legs.

Aside from the most obvious tips of not being hungover and getting up late, I’ve put together my 10 top tips for your wedding day.

1. Eat a nice breakfast full of protein that will keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Potentially, brides can go long periods without any food so this is very important.

2. Give yourself plenty of time to get ready. Allocate one of your bridesmaids to keep an eye on the time so you can relax. Alternatively your planner will be able to do this for you.

- 3. Apply baby powder. This is one tip that people will not tell you. Cover your inner thighs and any other areas that could potentially sweat with a light coating of it BEFORE putting on your MarieProm evening gowns. Those dresses can get very hot!

4. Stay hydrated. Lots of brides try to not drink many fluids to avoid having to use the bathroom, to try and fit in their dresses better or have just been so busy they forget to drink water.Lack of fluids in combination with being hot can quickly lead to finding yourself extremely dehydrated. You may have to ask yourself which is more embarrassing, having to use the bathroom a few times with bridesmaid’s assistance or passing out at your own wedding.An extra tip - drink your water from a bottle using a straw just in case you spill some.

5. A wedding planner will always have a wedding day emergency kit handy. If you decide not to hire a planner then have someone make one up for you and carry with them throughout the day.

6. Stay composed during the speeches. If someone has said something inappropriate, it’s best to let it pass without a big reaction.

7. Go easy on the alcohol. You will want to remember this day for the rest of your life, so make sure you don’t drink too much (that’s what you do at friends’ weddings).

8. Have a change of shoes for the reception. You will be stood in those high heels all day. By the time it comes to the evening you will be thankful you brought flats.

9. Try to relax and enjoy it. If you have booked the best professionals in the wedding industry you will not have to worry about a thing. Let everyone else worry about you and you get on with having fun with your family and friends.

10. Most importantly, remember why you are there. You and your groom will be pulled separately from pillar to post with guests grabbing you for attention. Take a few minutes out together in a quiet place to look at the person you are pledging your life to and reflect on the amazing journey that lies ahead of you both.

Park guests couldn`t turn a corner in Hollywood Studios without seeing Princess Leia hair buns and fans toting lightsabers.

What started as a small, fan-created event grew into a park-wide celebration on Saturday to remember the lives of Star Wars` Carrie Fisher and her mother, Singin` in the Rain`s Debbie Reynolds.

Fans paid tribute to both by dressing up as the many iterations of the galactic Princess Leia and her beau Han Solo (Harrison Ford). Others donned bright yellow MarieProm pink prom dresses or coats and carried umbrellas for Reynolds` iconic character, Kathy Selden.

Leias crowded the Star Tours ride to fly over Jakku, Naboo, Hoth and Coruscant with C-3PO as tour guide. Umbrella-toting fans rode The Great Movie Ride in the Studios` replica Chinese Theater to catch a glimpse of the Singin` in the Rain scene.

And at the end of the night in front of the Star Wars stage, hundreds gathered to hold up lightsabers and umbrellas to honor the late Fisher and Reynolds, who died within a day of each other at the end of December.

The event was the brainchild of Oakland resident Katie Shuman, a longtime Disney fan and fashion blogger who had no idea a simple Facebook event would take off the way hers did.

"I am a huge Star Wars fan, too, and when I heard about Carrie`s death I knew that I had to have a day at the parks where I could dress up as her to honor her legacy," she said.

Shuman, 22, said she and her friends love combining their passion for Disney and vintage fashion by ‘Disneybounding` as their favorite characters "with a dapper twist." She used her blog, The MarieProm black prom dresses Up Dame, to promote the tribute event through local fashion and Disney fan groups.

According to the event page, more than 4,000 said they were interested in attending and more than 1,200 went throughout the day.

"When I started this event I expected like maybe 100 people to even be interested in coming," she said. "But I`m happy that so many people are wanting to pay tribute to two wonderful women."

Though Shuman is not affiliated with Disney, the park reached out to her last week and offered to create a slideshow of Fisher and Reynolds for the tribute.

At 6:30 p.m., fans raised neon lightsabers and umbrellas to the sky to honor two iconic stars while a special mix of Singin` in the Rain and the Star Wars theme played.
