Inspiration Of Style: Princess Eugenie’s Paralympics Dress Is Impressively On-Trend (PHOTOS)

 

While all eyes were glued to the London Olympics in early August, the subsequent Paralympics have been slightly overshadowed by two political conventions and a handful of celebrity (and royalscandals. But the royals have still come out to show their support, with Princess Eugenie making an appearance at the eighth day of the games.

Her cousin-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, was not in attendance (we presume she’s at home, packing for her upcoming royal tour). But surprisingly Eugenie gave us our fashion fix and more, looking stunning in a trendy, body-con dress. The front zipper and bright scuba-like print were a refreshing change from all those solid sheaths we see Kate wear (not that we don’t love them!)

Between this and her sexy LBD earlier this week, could Princess Eugenie be the royal style star to watch?

Totally. But not, like, instead of Kate. We’re still a little obsessed.

Check out the queen’s granddaughter looking stylish and confident at last night’s Paralympic medal ceremony. Do you like her busy dress?

Women’s Health: When Can You Get Pregnant? Many Women Don’t Know, Study Claims

Women seeking help getting pregnant at fertility clinics are often confused about when they’re most likely to conceive naturally, an Australian survey finds.

Researchers at Monash University in Melbourne polled 204 women looking for fertility assistance at two assisted reproductive technology (ART) clinics in the city. Just 13 percent could correctly answer which days of their menstrual cycle they were fertile, even though 68 percent said they believed they had accurately timed sex in their attempts to conceive naturally, and 87 percent said they tried to improve fertility knowledge.

This study found a majority of the women seeking fertility treatment had insufficient knowledge of when to time intercourse to optimize natural conception,” researcher Kerry Hampton, who led the study, said in a statement from Monash.

Accurately timed intercourse on fertile days of the menstrual cycle may reduce the time it takes a couple to get pregnant, helping some to avoid unnecessary ART treatment, Hampton said.

Scientists define infertility as the inability to conceive after a year of unprotected sex. And Hampton said poor fertility awareness could be a contributing cause of infertility.

A woman is most fertile during the few days just before and including ovulation, which typically occurs 14 days before the start of a period.

The results of the survey, which were published online July 5, will be detailed in a forthcoming print issue of the International Journal of Advanced Nursing.

Inspirational Woman Of The Day: Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox was born on December 25, 1954 in Scotland. In the early 1980s, Lennox joined Dave Stewart to form the band the Eurythmics, which put out such hits as Sweet Dreamsand Here Comes the Rain Again. In 1991, Lennox launched a solo career, putting out the popular single Walking On Broken Glassand the haunting song Why, work which firmed established her as a serious solo artist.

Singer, songwriter, composer. Born on December 25, 1954 in Scotland. With an obvious early talent for music, Lennox’s parents sent her to the Royal Academy of Music in London to study the flute. While living in London, Lennox met guitarist Dave Stewart and joined a band called The Tourists. The two soon left to form the Eurythmics, which marked the beginning of a ten-year partnership. The duo produced a number of hit singlesduring the 1980s, including Sweet DreamsHere Comes the Rain Again and the soul-infused rocker Would I Lie To You.

The Eurythmics quietly disbanded in 1991 when Lennox took time off to have a child, and eventually work on a solo career. In 1992, her first solo album, Diva, was released. Her soulful vocals and mature stylings showed a sophisticated departure from the electronic sounds of the 1980s. Popular singles such as Walking On Broken Glass and the haunting Why established Lennox as a serious solo artist. The album sold over 2 million copies in the U.S., and was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.

In 1995, she released her second album, Medusa, a collection of cover tunes including No More ‘I Love You’s’Can’t Get Next To You and Don’t Let It Bring You Down. All the while, Lennox continued to push the envelope with her live performances, including male backup singers in ballet wear and bear suits.

Throughout the 1990s, Lennox took on the creative challenge of collaborating to produce for movie soundtracks. She wrote and sang backup on the Whitney Houston song Step By Step for The Preacher’s Wife. In 1992, she contributed to Love Song For A Vampire from the Dracula soundtrack and her voice can be heard on Dark Side Of The Moon and End Titles from Apollo 13. Her collaborative film efforts were rewarded in 2004 when she received an Academy Award for Best Song for the haunting, beautiful Into the West from The Lord of the Rings: The Return the King.

In 1999, Stewart and Lennox received a lifetime achievement award for Outstanding Contribution to the British Music Industry.
