BurtAmazing Weather Photographs: Part 2 Weather news is a little slow this Friday so I thought I would I would post another selection (this time 10) of amazing weather related photographs.

They are arranged in no particular ankle ugg boots order. As we head into the heart of the (so far lackluster) tornado season, I thought I would show a couple of interesting tornado images. Professional weather photographer Mike Hollingshead took the one above in southwestern South Dakota on June 7, 2005. The image, aside from being gorgeous, is particularly interesting in that it shows a large portion of the supporting cloud structure. A university meteorology professor could devote an entire lecture discussing this image. Photo by Mike Hollingshead.

WWD picks 100 designers who shaped fashion NEW YORK From Adolfo to Yohji Yamamoto, Women s Wear Daily has recorded the A to Z of fashion over the last 100 years. There are the suffragettes, flappers, career women in pantsuits and, later, miniskirts. Fashion is an industry that s always on the hunt for the next big thing. Yet, in researching a new book about a century of style, "WWD 100 Years, 100 Designers," executive editor Bridget Foley found some constants. "So many designers, when they talk about their work talk about women first," Foley says. "There s an ongoing idea and a belief among the very best designers that you have to push forward, but also that you also always have to consider what women will wear." For all the declarations of trends, including hemlines, silhouettes and embellishments, Foley finds that most garments be they skinny jeans or pencil skirts are consistently available year after year, even when they re not winning headlines. And, she adds, however modern and urban we like to think black is, women have been wearing it regularly since the 1920s. The power of buzz has been around even longer. Some of the designers included in the book were chosen because they literally changed the shape of fashion: Paul Poiret, Claire McCardell and Christian Dior, among cheap grey ugg boots them. But someone such as Gabrielle Chanel (known, of course, as Coco) really created an entire culture around a brand. A 1965 WWD quote about Chanel: "Chanel is more than a look it s an institution it s a belief and a way of life which this clever and very crafty artiste has done. She knows that her ever hungry Fashion Barbies are women and girls who eat and drink and dance and love." Winnowing down this list of most influential designers to 100 was harder than it sounds, especially balancing new talent like Jason Wu against Dior and Oscar de la Renta, Foley says. "Is this all good fashion?" she wonders. "I m not sure it s all good fashion, but it s all ugg knightsbridge boots representative fashion, and much of it is really good." Others who made the cut: Giorgio Armani, Cristobal Balenciaga, Andre Courreges, Francisco Costa, Calvin Klein, Charles James, Norma Kamali, Laura and Kate Mulleavy mens ugg boots sale of Rodarte, Donna Karan, Madeline Vionnet, and both Gianni and Donatella Versace.
