Jennifer Lopez's New Friend: A $2.1 Million Ring
Jenny from the block made yet another fashion statement this week on Wednesday’s episode of American Idol, where she distracted us all with a new sparkler.
The star was showing off a yellow-diamond ring from Cora Jewelers, and it wasn’t cheap.
According to People.com, the 50.40 carat gem, accented in 18-karat yellow gold with ebony wood, comes with a price tag of $2.1 million.
But lucky for the rest of the world, you don’t have to be a celeb to score this gem (although clearly you do have to be loaded)—it will soon be available for purchase on the jeweler’s site.

I don't understand the "poor me" mentality of some of these posts. What makes everyone think someone needs to help them out? I work three jobs and do what I need to in order to make it work. There is a multi-millionaire right down the street. I don't sit and feel sorry for myself and think he should be helping me, and I don't whine about what I would like to have but don't have the money to get.
I think to myself sometimes, wow, wish I had the lucky break, or the education he has to get me where he is - but I don't think he owes me anything and I am not upset that he is not helping me.
Jennifer is a star, she has worked years to get where she is, she didn't ride in on her family's money or have her daddy pave the way for her. She worked. She's beautiful so heck no that doesn't hurt any....
If she wants to buy something outlandish and unecessary with her money... good for her... I always said that if I hit the lottery I would always have my nails done, get pedicures and have fresh flowers all the time.... necessary??? No....
And... Jennifer does alot of charitable work - she just doesn't need accolades for it. Most people who genuinely give out of the goodness of their heart don't need to be reconized for it.
Giving (helping others) is a choice - it's not a requirement.
When did we make the leap to feel so entitled?
Think about the people YOU could be helping when you are buying lottery tickets, cigarettes, alcohol, shopping on QVC, and the next time you feel the urge to be critical of someone who has it all.... go out and do something charitable to offset that bad feeling.
beauty tips and style advice
Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?
Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
