White calla inspire painters and adorn bridal bouquets. Indeed, the name of this elegant perennial comes from the Greek word for “beautiful.” These showy flowers are not true lilies and are related to jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum).
The calla lily was named by Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus, who discovered the species in southern Africa in the 18th century. They soon after became popular in Europe in weddings. The calla lily is associated with rebirth because it can survive up to 10 days as a cut flower. A traditional favorite of brides, the white calla lily first appeared in Europe in the 1600s. The long-lasting blooms have been a classic favorite of artists for centuries, cementing its status as a regal beauty.

While we know plenty about Michelle Obama’s designer preferences, we know comparatively little about her beauty routine. Well, that’s likely about to change, as FLOTUS’ favorite designer Jason Wu has announced an imminent makeup line.
The collection, a partnership with cosmetics company Lancôme, will arrive just in time for the designer’s New York Fashion Week presentation next month.
Classic as Wu’s designs may be, don’t expect subtlety from the Lancôme line: “I’m not a ‘no-makeup makeup’ kind of a person. There’s always a look,” Wu tells Women’s Wear Daily. In fact, we got a preview of Wu’s makeup back in February, when the designer tested out dramatic violet eyeshadows for his runway show.
The collection, which will be sold at Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman, features 15 products, including eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, mascara and nail polish. “When you have great hair and makeup, it brings out the clothes even more,” Wu says. “This project feels very organic to me and is one of my favorite collaborations that I’ve ever done.”
Here’s hoping that our fashionable first lady enjoys the collection as much as she doesJason Wu’s dresses. Can you picture Michelle in saturated eyeshadow?

Some interesting Facts about Mona Lisa

But the most commonly believed is Lisa Gherardini, born in 1479. She was 24 years old and the mother of two sons when she posed for the painting. Why he chose her is still a mystery.
The original name of the painting is Monna Lisa, it was a common italian shortening of Madonna, meaning “my lady.” But can you believe it, the most recognized name of this painting now is because of a spelling error(Mona Lisa).
