Black Woman named High School Varsity Coach!

In a historic moment for women in sports, Washington D.C. science teacher Natalie Randolph has been named head coach of the Calvin Coolidge Senior High School football team, reports CNN. Randolph is believed to be the first female head varsity coach in the country.

"While I'm proud to be part of what this all means," she said at a new conference this week, "Being female has nothing to do with it. I love football, I love teaching, I love these kids. My being female has nothing to do with my support and respect for my players on the field and in the classroom..."

Beauty Pick: Stila Jewel Eyeshadow Palette

Want a new look for that weekend party? You have to pick up the latest from Stila. It's Jewel Eye Shadow formula creates a glistening wave of color that glimmers and sparkles across your lids like no other to give your eyes a brilliant, sequin-like reflection.

Shades include:
Rose Quartz: light pink with silver sparkle
Amethyst: grey eggplant with champagne sparkle
Black Diamond: black with silver sparkle
Golden Topaz: champagne shimmer with silver and gold sparkle

Our number 1 pick goes to Zoe Saldana!!!!!!
The “Avatar” star took a chance in a violet Givenchy couture gown. We loved the sparkling bodice and ruffled tulle skirt with the matching shoes!!! AMAZING!

We loved Nicole Richie as she appeared ready to disco the night away at the club in this vintage-inspired sequined Reem Acra dress and Judith Leiber clutch.

The Queen reigned supreme in a regal lavender figure-hugging satin gown, which she accessorized with diamonds and pink sapphires courtesy of Chopard.

The Best Actress nominee was absolutely “Precious” while working it in a blue off-the-shoulder Marchesa creation. Gabourey also won some extra points for her sass: “If fashion was porn, this dress is the money shot,” she laughed on the red carpet.

Mo'Nique Wins the Big One!

It's official--Mo'Nique is an Academy Award-winning actress. The stand-up comedian and late-night talk show host won Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of a violent, abusive mother in Precious.

And her outfit made a statement -- not a fashion statement but a political one -- and to speak her mind about her win. As Mo'Nique told reporters after the awards ceremony, the reason she wore a blue dress and gardenias in her hair was to pay tribute to Hattie McDaniel, the first African American to win an Academy Award; McDaniel wore that color and that flower when she accepted her groundbreaking Oscar in 1940 for the movie Gone With the Wind.
