The actress channels her flirty-femme side for Marie Claire U.K. "Young women like Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart — they’re the stars now,“ she says. "I don’t even know who the guys are who are their age.” That said, Portman insists there’s still a double standard for male and female stars.

Royal Wedding Challenge:

Day 25: March 25- Favorite candid wedding photos.

Ok so I couldn’t pick just one or two. There’s a bunch: 

This one of Mary with her father before she got out of the car.

This famous one of Diana and her bridesmaids.

I’ve always loved this one of Kate going in the church.

Love this one for Victoria and Daniel’s wedding. Frederick looks so happy for one of his closest friends and Maxima (always happy) is excited for them! ( @anythingandeverythingroyals I believe made this edit)

Two very happy people in Princess Claire and Prince Felix of Luxembourg

Gotta love this one of Victoria and Daniel

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this of Estelle reaching for her Aunt Sofia. 

And Daniel’s the baby whisperer. Just give him the kids at royal weddings. Not sure who made this gif. Found it on Google so let me know if you did it!


Koto Bolofo – Venus  Williams

With a text by the photographer

Steidl ,Göttingen 2008. 29 x 37 cm. 130 p. with 90 colour plates. Hardcover. Text in English language

Koto Bolofo was born in South Africa in 1959, but was raised in Great Britain after his family was forced to flee as political refugees. After nearly 25 years absence, father and son returned to South Africa. Bolofo has worked for such prestigious publications as Vogue, Marie Claire, British GQ, Sport and Style, Provider and many others. His advertising clients include Hermès, Banana Republic, Façonnable, Burberry, Levi’s, Alberta Ferretti, Dom Pérignon and Keratese.

At the tender age of 14, Venus Williams was already a professional athlete and taking the world of tennis by storm. Fiercely determined and wielding an impressive physical prowess, she spent the next decade rising to the top-ranked position and winning numerous championships, including the U.S. Open, Wimbledon, doubles at the Australian Open and French Open, and two Olympic gold medals. In June 2007, Venus won her fourth Wimbledon Championship.

Bolofo has been granted unrivalled access to the athlete during both her public tournaments and during many private moments to create this unique and intimate portrait of both Venus and world of competitive tennis.
