Nicole Kidman is known for her classy style sense, but at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where she promoted her new flick The Paperboy along with Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron, the actress proved that the classic sheath can also be sexy! Nicole chose an orange red Antonio Berardi knee-length sheath with a fabulous side slit, then finished off with Manolo Blahnik peep toes and a gold Omega watch. While her exact dress isn't available, this red Antonio Berardi dress with a single side zip ($1,740) is equally stunning, especially since you can unzip it as much as you like. For something less pricey, try this Mango red slim-fit cocktail dress ($100). Or for an even sassier take on the classic sheath, get this Versace cutout red dress ($711, originally $1,105).
Many people are setting up juice bars in the comfort of their own kitchens. Sure, juicers are pricey, but once you invest in one, you can take your favorite fruits and vegetables and instantly make a healthy fresh juice blend. Juice extracted from a juicing machine can provide you with an abundance of nutritional goodness including vitamins, potassium, and magnesium — but which juicers are worth the money? Here are five of my favorites!

Pro-Tibet groups are joining together to call out the corporate sponsors of the Beijing Olympics. The groups say that unless the companies use their influence to pressure China, they are complicit in a humanitarian disaster.
Twelve global sponsors, including Coca Cola, General Electric, McDonald's, Visa, Johnson & Johnson and Omega have paid a combined $80 million for the four year exclusive sponsorship deal. Activists explain that together these companies have a GDP equal to Canada's, the world's eighth largest economy. Thus, they can wield a lot of influence.
Do you expect sponsors to get involved in global politics, considering they work with governments, employ lobbying firms, and maintain international presences?
Are human rights more than politics, therefore giving everyone an obligation to pressure China, including corporations and consumers? Or, should the sponsors be commended for supporting the Olympic movement, which would be impossible without them?
Always forgetting to take your supplements? Me too. But it's a rare day when I forget dessert.
Now you can kill two birds with one stone. Flora makes Bija Omega Truffles, which are made with a rich blend of premium organic ingredients and 8 grams of omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids (the good ones).
There is increasing evidence that chocolate contains surprising amounts of minerals, potent antioxidants and other phytonutrients. And adding healthy fats to your diet can help reduce your cholesterol and your risk of coronary disease.
Dessert that's good for you? Count me in. They're available in three mouthwatering flavors: Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Hazelnut, and White Maple.
Each package comes with four truffles so you can really indulge and feel good doing it. Look for them in the cooler at your favorite natural food store.
