This Is What A $31 Million Wedding Looks Like (PHOTOS)

If you thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s $12 million wedding was an absurd use of money, then this wedding is going to push you over the edge. According to Forbes, the Chinese actress, singer, and model Angela Yeung was married earlier this month with a ceremony that cost $31 million.

For a reference point, the average American wedding is $26,444 so that makes this wedding over 1,100 times more expensive.  And for another comparison, the royal wedding of William and Kate cost $34 million. So close, yet so far away.

Angela Yeung is considered to be the Kim Kardashian of China but she actually spent almost 3 times more money than her American counterpart.

So how do you spend that much money on a wedding?  They did pre-ceremony pictures in Paris, had custom made gowns (yes that was plural gowns), a 2,000 person guest list, a 1.5 million dollar ring, rose filled rooms, and much more.

According to Forbes, the gown for the ceremony was absurd and featured “115 feet of ivory satin organza, and 165 feet of tulle…a 10-foot-long train, and nearly 100 hand-cut rose bouquets made of Chantilly lace.”

Here are a few pictures of the event:

Let’s just hope they have some money left to help some people who are really in need.

5,000 Years Of Makeup Trends In One Video

Lisa Eldridge might know makeup history better than anyone else. Using her deep knowledge on the subject she created an incredible video that captures all of the makeup and beauty trends since the beginning of time.

It’s pretty cool to see how different cultures used make-up over the years. I had no idea that Egyptians were the first to use makeup and that men also experimented with the “technology.”

Checkout Lisa’s website for a listing of all the products she used in the video (you know, in case you want to bring back that Victorian look).

What’s your favorite style and time period from the video?

How To Properly Do A Topknot

TRESemme Stylist, Tyler Laswell shows us how to effortlessly create the perfect topknot. Because I have curly hair, and I’d consider myself pretty low-maintenance, a topknot is often my go-to when running late for work or if I want to grab a cocktail after the gym with friends.

I like to make my topknot a bit on the messier side, and this quick tutorial shows you how to accomplish that. My pro top: pull a few thin pieces out of your up-do (from around the front of your face) to frame your face and give it a little dimension.

Nike Has Soul When They Create Flyease For Teenager With Cerebral Palsy

Warning: Get ready to cry (but in a very good way). At some point, it seems all teenage boys want a pair of Nikes, but 16-year-old Matthew Walzer is different. He has cerebral palsy and, though he may have wanted some Nikes, he couldn’t tie them himself. So, a few years ago, he wrote to the company.

Here are some excerpts from his letter:

…I have overcome many challenges in my life. Although doctors from the country’s top hospitals told my parents that I would never walk; and if I ever talked I would have a major lisp, these diagnoses proved to be false, I walk somewhat independently around my home and use crutches when I’m out or at school…

…Out of all the challenges I have overcome in my life, there is one that I am still trying to master, tying my shoes. Cerebral palsy stiffens the muscles in the body. As a result I have flexibility in only one of my hands which makes it impossible for me to tie my shoes. My dream is to go to the college of my choice without having to worry about someone coming to tie my shoes every day.

I’ve worn Nike basketball shoes all my life. I can only wear this type of shoe because I need ankle support to walk. I am currently wearing the Lunar hyper gamer and LeBron Zoom Soldier 6’s. At 16 years old, I am able to completely dress myself, but my parents still have to tie my shoes. As a teenager who is striving to become totally self-sufficient, I find this extremely frustrating, and at times, embarrassing…

…If Nike would design and produce basketball and running shoes with moderate support and some kind of closure system that could be used by everyone, Nike could create a shoe line that attracts people that face the same physical challenges I did and still do, yet it could still be possible for anyone to wear them. I am always searching the web for any type of shoe brand that makes athletic shoes that provide good support, are self-lacing and are made for everyday wear or for playing sports…

…This letter is not a business proposal. I am simply making you aware that there is a need for this type of athletic shoe, a great need. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. No matter what challenges I’ve faced in my life, I’ve always strived to be independent, independence is for everyone.

Nike’s CEO, Mark Parker, gave the letter to Tobie Hatfield, senior director of athlete innovation, and the shoe-designing journey began.

The (laceless) LeBron Zoom Soldier 8 Flyease provides an effortless way to put on the shoes and has the support Walzer was concerned about. The wearer of the shoe can use one hand to use the zipper. It may look like a slip-on shoe, but it wraps around the back.
