Why Does Kate Middleton Leave the Hospital So Soon After Giving Birth?

Kate Middleton only gave birth to her third child a few hours ago — but she’s likely already gearing up to head back home to Kensington Palace.

Why does Kate make such a quick exit? In the U.S., new mothers average two days in the hospital before heading home. However, in the U.K., new moms average a day and a half — the shortest postpartum hospital stays of any high-income country, according to a 2016 article in The Guardian. Though Kate did spent the night after giving birth to Prince George in 2013, she left less than 10 hours after welcoming Princess Charlotte in 2015.

“The length of time a woman spends in hospital will vary depending on their needs,” Louise Silverton, the director for Midwifery at the Royal College of Midwives, told The Guardian. “Midwives need to check to make sure women feel up to going home. However, provided the woman is medically fine, has the support she needs at home and the right postnatal care plan in place, and a good community midwife service, then going home even five or six hours after birth may be absolutely fine.”

Another reason for Kate’s quick exit — one that’s entirely unique to her — is the sheer frenzy her presence causes at the hospital.  Fans camp out for weeks outside and parking restrictions are put in place. Kate, of course, is not the only mother giving birth at the Lindo Wing, and the activity and noise would overwhelming for anyone.

If Kate goes home to Kensington Palace today, help is only a phone call away if needed. Members of her medical team are likely on stand-by in case Kate or her new baby boy needs anything.

But there’s one big moment to go before they head home: Just before leaving the hospital, we’ll get a glimpse of the littlest royal on the steps of the Lindo Wing with proud parents Kate and William.

Andy Cohen, Sherri Shepherd and More Stars Remember Project Runway’s Mychael Knight: ‘Gone Too Soon’

Hollywood has a lot of love for the late Mychael Knight.

The former Project Runway and Project Runway: All Stars contestant died Tuesday morning outside Atlanta. He was 39.

In the wake of his death, several stars took to social media to commemorate the late fashion designer, including his good friend and celebrity client Sherri Shepherd.

“My heart hurts so much today bc I lost my friend, my little brother @mychaelknight,” she wrote on Instagram. “I was a fan of Mychael’s since I first saw him on #ProjectRunway & when @jawnmurray finally put us together, it was a match made in #heaven. We clicked immediately & Mychael said he was going to be my stylist for the long haul. He had a wicked sense of humor and was the most creative man I knew.”

“Mychael had a sixth sense when it came to styling women,” she continued. “He brought out the best of your features and I always felt like a princess when he styled me. Mychael taught me that Spanx is a girl’s best friend and Lord help me if someone took a pic of me & I wasn’t red carpet ready. I respected his business acumen, his honesty and integrity. When he said he wanted to collaborate w me on a curvy line of clothing for women, I thought we’d struck gold.”

Shepherd, 50, revealed the pink blush gown she was wearing in the photo she posted was custom-designed by Knight for the Daytime Emmy Awards — and he sewed it in 24 hours.

“Mychael how I wish your dreams weren’t cut short — but so thankful for the time I was allowed to be a part of your life,” she concluded. “I know you are in #heaven updating the angels’ wardrobe (‘Lord! Wings are so 90s!’) I love you my friend #RIP #alwaysafan.”

Bravo’s Andy Cohen, who was an executive at the network when Project Runway first began, expressed his condolences and memories of Knight on Twitter, writing, “I am so sad to hear about Mychael Knight. When he appeared on #ProjectRunway he was the sweetest guy, full of life, ambition & talent. #rip.”

Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson also remembered her “dear old friend.”

“Ur such a beautiful spirit,” she wrote. “I cherish ur humble creative nature. One of the good ones, gone too soon.”

“I will always remember the feeling…you were the first to create a dress for lil ole me back in ’04. I cherish you & treasure this dress…” she continued. “We believed in each other before all the fame & attention…saw each other’s visions & genuinely supported one another. #RIPMychaelKnight. Sending love & prayers to every friend & family member. I know you will be missed by all who were blessed to know you.”

Knight’s family confirmed his death in a statement to Obvious magazine.

“We are still processing the untimely death of our son, brother, friend, and uncle,” they said. “Mychael meant everything to us and we loved him dearly. He was generous and so full of life. This is how we choose to remember his legacy.”

Knight died on Tuesday after recently checking into a hospital for treatment for intestinal issues, TMZ reported.

Born in Germany, Knight divided his childhood between Alabama and New York. He studied Apparel Design and Merchandising at Georgia Southern University, graduating in 2001.

Knight first auditioned for the second season of Project Runway in 2005 but didn’t make the cut. When he auditioned again the following year, he was named one of the season 3 contestants and went on to place fourth in the overall competition, winning season 3’s Fan Favorite award.

After leaving the show, Knight launched his own label, Mychael Knight, and returned to Project Runway multiple times over the years, competing in a 2009 All-Star Challenge, as well as a starring as a contestant on the third season of the show’s All Stars spin-off in 2013.

Throughout his career, he continued to release new collections. His Spring/Summer 2018 line was his most recent.

You Can Soon Buy Tickets To The ‘Mean Girls’ Musical, You Pathetic Loser

Good news, people who were in high school in 2004 and still feel like they are in high school in 2017.

“Mean Girls,” Tina Fey’s classic comedy exploring the many creative ways young women torture one another to rise up on the food chain of popularity, is headed to Broadway.

But first, it’s stopping in D.C.

What is the 411? Tickets to #MeanGirlsDC go on sale on FRIDAY, APRIL 28! Sign up and we'll remind you. Link in bio.

A post shared by Mean Girls Broadway (@meangirlsbway) on

On April 28, tickets go on sale for the world premiere of the highly anticipated musical adaptation, which follows fresh blood Cady Heron who, after starting at a new school in Illinois, is seemingly adopted by a trio of popular girls called The Plastics. Spoiler alert: they aren’t very nice. 

The Broadway plot description sounds pretty familiar:

After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to Illinois and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy. A sweet, naive newbie, Cady quickly attracts the attention of The Plastics, a trio of popular frenemies led by the vicious and calculating Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Thankfully, Fey herself adapted the “Mean Girls” screenplay for the stage, so it’s probably sticking true to the original. Jeff Richmond, the Emmy-winning composer with TV credits like “30 Rock” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” under his belt (who’s also Fey’s husband), wrote the music, with lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin. 

Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw is directing and choreographing the show. Lorne Michaels is co-producing, because of course he is.

“Mean Girls” will premiere at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 31, and travel to Broadway soon after. Our advice: Dress appropriately.

Alec Baldwin May End Donald Trump Bit Soon For A Depressing Reason

This is no laughing matter.

Alec Baldwin has stated again that he might soon ditch his Donald Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live,” this time because he predicts viewers will be too depressed to see the humor. 

Baldwin confirmed to the British Press Association on Thursday that he will continue his Trump shtick when he is available this season on “SNL,” which has seen a ratings revival due in part to Baldwin’s antics as commander-in-chief.

But all bets are off for next season. 

“After that, I don’t quite know,” he says in the clip above. “I don’t quite know if people want to continue with that. If everything stays the same in the country as it is now, I don’t think people will be in the mood to laugh about it come September.”

Earlier in March, the actor warned that he may shortly pull the plug on his Trump gig because of the administration’s “maliciousness.”

Although Baldwin is reportedly writing a book as Trump, spoofing the president in yet another medium ― perhaps in film or onstage ― doesn’t appeal to the actor. 

“I don’t know if I’d want to be Trump for more than a 5-minute slug of time on ‘Saturday Night Live,’” he said. “You’d have to pay me like an ungodly amount of money because it would be exhausting. It would be tiresome.”

Bikini Fit Hacks: 3 Things You Must Do as Soon You Put on Your Swimsuit

By Leah Melby, Glamour

2015-06-09-1433884111-5945457-Belussobikiniswimstringbikiniw724.jpg

According to bathing suit expert Kirsten Sarkisian, you never put on a bikini top only once. “First, you put it on–simply put it on your body,” the founder of Belusso swimwear tells Glamour, “but do not assume it’s ready to go at this point.”

Here’s why a perfect-fitting suit can require a little bit of adjusting–and three easy steps to making sure everything is shimmied into place.

Per Sarkisian, getting the perfect fit can be broken down into three quick steps.

1. Right away, handle the straps, making them tighter or looser so that they feel secure but aren’t digging into your skin.

2. Then, manually arrange your breasts by picking them up and pulling them gently toward the center of your torso–they should be fully enclosed by the structure of the bikini top.

3. Finish by checking yourself in a mirror to see if the top is riding up too high in the back or on the sides and make slight coordinating adjustments to the straps.

If you find you’re rarely pleased with how your curves look in a bikini, there could be a sneaky suspect to blame.

“Padding can sag when it gets wet and takes longer to dry than the rest of the suit,” Sarkisian said. “A suit with a little bit of it can be a good call for women with smaller breasts, but beware. Look for suits with removable pads so you can pull it out if need be.”

Why The Itsy Bitsy Bikini Trend Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon

Hawaii gets a lot of flak for being behind on trends, but when it comes to swimwear, the Aloha state is definitely ahead of the curve.

And we know something mainland beaches don’t: cheeky bikini bottoms are about to sweep the nation.

The Brazilian bikini bottom — the barely-there style of the ’80s — has been resurrected in new and more modest ways, and this time, bikini experts say, it’s here to stay.

“The [Brazilian bikini] trend is growing,” Debbie Wilson, owner and designer of Maui Girl Bikinis, told The Huffington Post. “I don’t see it losing popularity.”

everyone

You Can Thank/Blame Social Media

Wilson has been designing all types of bikinis for 30 years. When she first opened her boutique on Maui, Brazilian-cut and thong bikinis weren’t in much demand. Now, Wilson says, they make up 75 to 80 percent of her overall sales.

The resurgence has swept Hawaii over the past five years, and signs of it are just now beginning to pop up on the mainland. Victoria’s Secret, perhaps the most mainstream swimwear brand, has introduced an “Itsy” option as well as a “Cheeky” option, and San Lorenzo, the Hawaii-based boutique that specializes in the Brazilian-cut, has recently branched out with stores in Newport Beach and Malibu as well as a pop up shop in the Hamptons — the paragon of East Coast prep and propriety.

Those in the industry say the surge in popularity may be related to the rise of social media.

Sabra Krock, creative director for the swim boutique Everything But Water, told The Daily Beast that the recent “fitness craze” is to thank for the cheeky trend, “as well as the Instagram and selfie voyeurism that’s online,” she said.

“I definitely point to Instagram as a key reason for a desire to emulate celebrities,” she said.

A photo posted by Kylizzle (@kyliejenner) on



Once You Try It…

The trend may have only recently reignited, but Mariella St. John, marketing director for San Lorenzo Bikinis, says that this style “is one that you can never go back on.”

Today’s line-up of Brazilian-cut bikinis offers more modest designs, making the style more accessible. While veterans and daredevils might still opt for super thin thongs or the showy v-line swimsuits of the late ’80s and ’90s, more modest options like cheeky boy shorts now exist.

These new designs, Wilson says, are “turning into g-strings again, but with more details, like a waistband, or shorts that still fit you in a way a [thong] would.”

Contrary to what you may think, Wilson explained, smaller bikini bottoms have a “slimming effect” on your rear end.

“Women are starting to realize that the [smaller cuts] are more flattering,” she said.



Finding Your Fit

When choosing the right cut, Emma Wo, fashion blogger at AlohaBabe.net and Miss Hawaii 2015, says “it’s important to find a style that works well with your body type. Brazilian-cut bikinis can seem daunting at first,” she told HuffPost, “but if you’ve got curves, full-coverage bikinis can actually make you look wider.”

“When customers, who have never worn our bikinis, come into the store, we tell them, ‘We’re going to convert you,'” St. John said. When her customers find the right fit of a cheeky bikini and then go back to a traditional cut, they often tell her that the regular bottoms feel like a “diaper.”

For comparison, here’s a traditional cut next to a Brazilian cut on the same model at a San Lorenzo boutique:

slbikini

If you’re shy about jumping in to a full Brazilian bikini, Naomi Newirth, co-designer of Acacia Swimwear, says to find somewhere in between and start there — “not full coverage and not a total Brazilian cut,” she told HuffPost, “no extra sag or fabric.”

Acacia Swimwear’s 2015 collection features cheeky bottoms that still maintain moderate coverage, like the ones featured below. Bikini model Chelsea Yamase also suggests Mikoh Bikinis, for a similar style.

If you’re still nervous about making the switch, bikini blogger Rebekah Steen of Gold Fish Kiss says, “Just give it a shot. At least once. Life’s short, try it out, and get some sun on your buns. You’ll be surprised how wearing just a little less fabric on your bum makes it look just that much better.”

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best in-between cheeky bikinis so you can try the trend out for yourself.

Too Soon? Why No Joke Should Ever Be Off-Limits

Humor is the result of the clash of the incongruous.

It’s the intersection of two independent lines of thoughts, incapable of inhabiting the same space at the same time. (“A man walks into a bar. Ouch.”)

Every comedian knows this. And this is why comedy is so important, because it can function like society’s headlamp, effectively 3D-mapping our collective perception, showing the distances between what is and what we’ve convinced ourselves is.

This is another reason why many people in this world have such a difficult time with comedians, because comedians have always been watchdogs for bullshit. (Looking at you, Fox News.) And why topics like religion have always been comedic gold, because religion — just like politics or airline food — is, at its core, incongruous with reality.

That’s why there’s no such thing as “offensive” humor. Only a personal reaction to a concept or idea with a kernel of truth which some have made the conscious choice not to accept.

Humor, on the other hand, doesn’t care.

Because humor cannot exist without truth.

This is why comedy will always hold so much power. Because if a joke works — but you don’t like it or don’t agree with it — then ultimately it is your belief system that is dishonest; it’s your worldview that is what’s out of step with reality.

And that, to me, is offensive.

Calling All ‘Frozen’ Fanatics: An Elsa-Inspired Wedding Dress Can Soon Be Yours

If you’re a bride-to-be and Elsa the Snow Queen of Arendelle is your style icon, then you’re in luck.

Bridal designer Alfred Angelo is teaming up with Disney Consumer Products to create a wedding dress inspired by the sparkly blue gown Elsa dons in “Frozen.” The dress will be available in stores in January 2015, but we have a sketch to tide you over in the meantime:

The ice-blue sheath dress will feature dramatic beading to create a glistening effect, a sweetheart neckline and a Watteau train, which cascades from the upper back of the bodice down to the floor. And you just know that singing “Let It Go” at the top of your lungs would sound a hell of a lot better while wearing something like this.

You can check out more Alfred Angelo gowns inspired by your favorite Disney Princesses here.
