According to Styleite.com, “Jones’ forniphilic chairs were a source of controversy during the height of their popularity in the ’60s, though it’s Buro who have amped up the cringe factor by selecting one of the few pieces that uses a woman of color.”  The photo accompanying the interview shows Zhokova posing on a ‘black woman chair’. Zuma, who posted the image on her Instagram and Facebook pages, defended the photo as a work of art. But some are calling it ‘racist art’.

Duma’s followers on Instagram blasted her for posting the image. She also caught flack on Twitter.com. The images were quickly removed.

Dasha is the model girlfriend of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. In April, she gave birth to the couple’s first daughter at New York Presbyterian hospital. For two months, the couple awaited the baby’s birth on board Abramovich’s $500 million, 533-foot yacht docked in the Hudson river.Forbes magazine dubbed the birth “the most expensive baby delivery ever.”

Former Tiffany & Co Executive Pleads Guilty to 2.5 million dollar theft

BREAK FAST AT TIFFANY’s??? Not for a former Executive at Tiffany & Company.

Tiffany &Company
Tiffany &Company

And that someone would be a former vice president of product development at Tiffany & Co.Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, who was sentenced to a year and a day in prison this week.

This is the result of the 47-year-old ex VP pleading guilty to stealing $2 MILLION worth of jewelry from the company. Yep, you read that number right!! Pretty freakin’ insane if you ask us!!

Gurl admitted guilt to one count of transporting 165 pieces of stolen jewelry, including bracelets, necklaces, and rings, across state lines, and admitted that she had begun stealing in 2005.

In addition to the prison time, Lenderhaas-Okun will be forced to forfeit $2.2 million and pay $1.2 million in restitution.
