Beauty & Fashion

Outside is open for much of the world, and we can all celebrate in our masked glories! And although there are some countries that aren't with the tourism at this time, Italy seems to be welcoming any and everybody with arms wide open. Mainly the celebs of the world, who have been taking advantage of their open borders and living it up, Italian-style.


Famously, celebs such as Serena Williams and hubby, and Ciara and Russell Wilson took the trek over to the land of pasta, for their full-on flex baecations.

Now, a few of the ladies are back, all in the name of fashion.

In fact, this past weekend was the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda fashion show in Venice, Italy and the stars now only showed up and showed out, but it seems that some new friendships were formed in the process. And listen, the gworls came to play, mkay?! Stars such as Ciara, Vanessa Bryant, Megan Thee Stallion, Queen Normani, Doja Cat, and so many more came to represent in their best dressed and it was everything we didn't know we needed.

In a video captioned, "It's Party Time! @dolcegabbana Venice," Ciara can be seen teaching the ladies Italian en route to the show, singing a few jams, and hanging with A-listers alllllll over the place. And because Ciara is the friend we all need in our lives, of course there was full on footage of her supporting her bestie, Vanessa Bryant, as Kobe's birthday passed a few days prior.

The rapper, who currently goes by Sean "Love" Combs, took to Instagram to share a few flicks from Venice, Italy, where 14-year-old D'Lila and Jessie walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana. Diddy shares both children with his late ex, Kim Porter, who died nearly three years ago. D'Lila and Jessie's half-sister, 15-year-old Chance Combs, also made an appearance in he best dressed, which she thanked her dad on IG saying:

"Venice has been AMAZING with my family! Thank you daddy for everything and I'm honored to have been a part of Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show. Thank you @dolcegabbana for having us!!! Grazie! #moarmagic."

The pop star donned a full ball gown from Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2008 ready-to-wear collection, which she flaunted in a series of photos posted to Instagram by her hairstylist, Ashanti Lation. Sis channeled her inner princess in a green gown and full black tulle skirt that sent the people gagging.

She enjoyed the show alongside Megan Thee Stallion, with whom she previously collaborated on the song "Diamonds" from the Birds of Prey soundtrack, and they each shared videos of themselves seated next to each other on their Instagram Stories, with Normani captioning the clip, "My seester."

Saweetie mixed high-fashion with the hotel slipper trend yesterday during her time in Italy after her appearance at the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda runway show. The rapper was seen at the Excelsior Hotel in Venice with an emerald off-the-shoulder satin dress, which she paired with a jewel-encrusted clutch, crystal hairpins, a silver anklet, a custom necklace with her name and the most comfortable footwear—hotel slippers. It's giving, 'high-fashion, but make it comfortable.'

Sis knows how to keep the people talking. Here for it!

Other celebs such as Aldis Hodge, Doja Cat, PJ Tucker, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, and more made the weekend a star-studded one for the books. Dolce, himself, topped it all off by saying:

"I've worked in fashion for 43 years and I've never known anything like that. I can't take the emotion."

Us either, Mr. Dolce. Us either.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
