Chelsea Clinton to publish first book New York (AFP) - In a unique position as the child of one, and potentially two, US presidents Chelsea Clinton stepped up her growing public profile Wednesday by announcing publication of her first book. Her foray into the world of non-fiction will be "It's Your World," a treatise for young readers on some of the world's most pressing problems and what they can do to help. It will be published by an imprint of Penguin Young Readers on September 15, 2016 just weeks before the next US presidential election when mother Hillary will be hoping to follow Bill into the White House and become the country's first woman president. Under the sub-heading "Get Informed, Get Inspired and Get Going!" the book will address issues such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, access to education, gender equality, health, climate change and endangered species, Clinton and Penguin announced. Educated at the universities of Stanford, Columbia and Oxford, the 35-year-old mother of one has had a busy career.

The most practical look of all goes to Eva Herzigova, who recently sported a Breton top while attending the festival. Want to walk the line? Here are three ways to master the trend just in time for summer.
Celebs Are Being Paid Lots of Money to Wear Jewels That Are Worth Lots of Money It’s no secret that the Cannes Film Festival (where glitz rules and high heels are reportedly mandatory on the red carpet), is a major marketing opportunity for luxury brands. In fact, jeweler Chopard thought the film festival was so key to its strategy, it apparently wrote checks totaling over $1 million to ensure that 11 stars, like Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong’o, would wear the company’s baubles during the festivities. Yes, if you’re an A-List, of-the-moment actress or model, a company will loan you diamonds or emeralds worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and pay you six figures for the pleasure of “collaborating” on the event. So common is the practice of paying stars to don jewels during awards season, “7/10 of the nominees and presenters are paid for at least one or more of the items they are wearing [on the] red carpet,” says Matthew Berritt, Director at EVINS Communications, a leading luxury PR firm, based in New York.

Sasha Fierce! Sasha Pivovarova’s 23 Best Runway Moments (Versace Spring 2010, Photo: Maria Valentino) Sasha Pivovarova’s beauty is a given, but it’s her intensity on the runway that made her a star. Since debuting on Prada’s Fall catwalk back in 2005, Pivovarova has made a name for herself by playing up the spooky side of her alien looks and putting those wide eyes and sunken cheekbones to good use in theatrical shows for the biggest names in fashion. Though she’s malleable enough to take on any character a designer can dream up, Pivovarova is at her best when she’s playing peculiar for iconoclasts like John Galliano or Alexander McQueen. In recent years, she’s softened her severity, taking time off from the runway to become an artist, but there’s still something wonderful about seeing her vamp her way down the catwalk. Take a look back through Pivovarova’s best moments from the Style.com archives below.

Slouchy, fitted, casual, fancy—women like Beyonce, Lily Aldridge, and of course Kim Kardashian prove that a little white dress isn’t the only way to wear spring’s hottest color. Though it might be the easiest, you’ll look infinitely more interesting after layering shades of bright white with nudes, ivory, and pale pink in a variety of textures. You probably have a favorite pair of white jeans, and there’s no shortage of white dresses out there.
