Boatneck: The detail seen at the royal wedding can be part of your closet

In case you missed it, there has been some drama surrounding Meghan Markle's wedding gown. British designer Emilia Wickstead claimed that the design was a copy of one of her gowns.

Why Rita Moreno chose to wear her Pitoy gown at the Oscars again

LOS ANGELES---"Well, let's see, I was there (in Manila) in '62 because '62 was when I came to America to attend the Oscars," Rita Moreno began when we asked her recently how the late great Filipino designer Pitoy Moreno created the gold and black gown that she originally wore when she won the Academy best supporting actress for "West Side Story."

LOOK: LeBron James unveils 16th signature shoe

LeBron James has released his 16th signature shoe with sports brand Nike, his first one since signing with the Los Angeles Lakers.  The LeBron 16 dropped Saturday in a black and red colorway, aptly named "Fresh Bred". It continues James' longtime aesthetic for his signature sneakers that also works as the perfectly balance between support and its weight. Designer Jason Petrie, James’s longtime collaborator, says working with a physical freak of nature like LeBron creates a series of evolving challenges, Petrie believes the most groundbreaking part of the release is its knitting.  "They are mathematical artists and have created a new knit for the 16 that is strong enough to contain LeBron and successfully reduces any layers in the overall build that could slow him down," said Petrie. According to Nike, the knit is structured in a way t hat it increases tensile strength while having elegant finish matches The King's current style. The LeBron 16’s other notable feature is its height. At the direction of James, Petrie formed the shoe with a lower collar, which allows the athlete to move more freely. “The first thing we wanted to do was get a little lower in the cut of the shoe,” said James. “I wanted to get a little faster, ride a little bit closer to the court and be a little bit more dynamic.” Petrie and team also added a new gusseted leather tongue, allowing for seamless entry into the shoe and for broader styling choices off court. Underfoot, a simple evolution of the Max Air cushioning platform introduced in the LeBron 15 that supports James’s dynamic demands.

Ariana Grande belts Aretha Franklin standard in tiny dress

DETROIT --- Ariana Grande belted an Aretha Franklin standard at the Queen of Soul's homegoing in a black dress so short it got the social media choir going. As former president Bill Clinton sat behind her with a big smile on his face, Grande appeared nervous as she made her way to the front of Greater Grace Temple, apparently unclear where she was supposed to stand for her performance of "(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman." She found her footing, though, and made it through, collecting an awkward hug from Bishop Charles H. Ellis III of Greater Grace when she was finished. On Twitter, Grande's dress was criticized as too short for church. "#ArianaGrande don't know th...Keep on reading: Ariana Grande belts Aretha Franklin standard in tiny dress.....»»

‘Black Panther’ costume designer celebrated in retrospective

PITTSBURGH (AP) --- For more than 30 years, costume designer Ruth E. Carter's creations have brought the African-American experience to life on the big screen, from 19th century slave ships in "Amistad" to 1980s Brooklyn in "Do the Right Thing," to the Afrofuturistic land of Wakanda in "Black Panther." Now, she's bringing the spectrum of her work to Pittsburgh for a new exhibit called "Heroes & Sheroes: The Art & Influence of Ruth E. Carter in Black Cinema."

UAAP F4 rematch between Ateneo, FEU in Filoil Preseason semis

Ateneo de Manila University was 25.3 seconds away from its very first loss in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup – the very first loss that would boot it out of contention. Matt Nieto was having none of it, however, and made good on back-to-back short stabs that lifted the Blue Eagles over very game Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 74-72, on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Nieto only had nine points in the end, but four of those came when it mattered most. “In the end, I’m glad that we were able to get some stops and execute our plays. I’d like to thank our players for digging deep especially in the last few minutes,” coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said post-game. In a close contest that featured 10 deadlocks and eight lead changes, Bong Quinto put the Knights up by two with 25.3 ticks to go on the clock. Off a timeout, Arrespacochaga, filling in for Tab Baldwin, went to his court general. Nieto, not even 24 hours back home from a series of tuneup games in Greece, did nothing but deliver, leaving JP Calvo in the dust at the top of the key and then making good on a layup while also fishing a foul. He missed the freebie, but Angelo Kouame kept the ball alive. Ateneo then went back to Nieto and he came through once more to grant his team a 74-72 edge. Letran still had 5.4 seconds to make something happen, but Jeo Ambohot’s triple try hit back rim, finishing the job on the Blue Eagles ascent into the semifinals where they meet UAAP rival Far Eastern University. There would be no Ateneo-La Salle in the semis as the Green Archers were ousted by the Tamaraws in the earlier game. Hubert Cani caught fire in the endgame and fired half of his 22 points to shoot FEU over La Salle, 76-69. Aljun Melecio’s triple put the Taft-based team on top, 65-63, inside the last four minutes before Cani quickly countered with a corner three. From there, Cani buried four straight fadeaway midrange jumpers over the outstretched arms of different defenders to outscore all of the Green Archers. Already in front, 74-69, with 27.8 ticks to go, the Tamaraws charged ahead for good with a defensive stop and then a breakaway layup courtesy from Wendell Comboy. For head coach Olsen Racela, their advance into the semis is just another opportunity for his boys to get better. “Nagustuhan ko lang ngayon, we have one more game to prepare us for the season. Ang maganda, we get to play favored teams na magpe-prepare sa amin this season,” he said. Andrei Caracut paced La Salle with 15 points. Their 7-3 performance in the preseason is nonetheless promising despite the quarterfinals exit. For the Knights, JP Calvo topped the scoring column with 16 points. They bow out of the tournament with a 5-4 record and after a gallant stand up against the UAAP champions.
