Life is a special occasion

Current Music : Cee-Lo

Everyone was on board when Gnarls Barkley released Crazy. It's a great song, sung by Cee-Lo. His soulfully, unique voice is hauntingly powerful. So it comes as no surprise that I made an instant connection with his new singer Forget You - SIDE NOTE Forget You is not the original title but if you use your imagination I am sure you'll put two and two together like Chuck Woolery and figure it out ;-)

Real Events : Chelsea Clinton + Marc Mezvinsky

It's official: on Saturday, July 31, 2010, Chelsea Clinton was married to Marc Mezvinsky at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, New York. According to People Magazine, it was a strapless silk organza gown with a draped tulle bodice and an embellished belt designed by Vera Wang. Nice! Of course the dress Chelsea wore was stunning but she really has transformed and looked amazing! Also according to People, Marc wore a tuxedo designed by Christopher Baile, a creative director at Burberry. Bill and Hillary Clinton wore Oscar de la Renta.
