Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Greene sure made a splash during a girls' getaway in Bali this week.
The friends left their worries behind to share a marvelous time in the sun during another day at the Oakley Pro Bali/Learn To Surf event in Indonesia.
When Ashley, 26, and Vanessa, 24, weren't soaking up the rays on the beach, they were having a blast shooting the curl in the waters off Indonesia on Wednesday.
Bali babes: Vanessa Hudgens and friend Ashley Greene enjoyed the rays atop a boat during day two of the Oakley Pro Bali event in Indonesia on Wednesday
Vanessa was trim and slim in black bikini bottoms and clingy short-cropped top as she splashed around the waves.
The young star's long dark locks was a mass of wet coils but she was having too much fun to care about her hair.
Vanessa was in a playful mood, at one point sticking out her tongue as she wades in the shallows.
Adrift in paradise: The High School Musical star showed off her athletic prowess while surfing in the clear blue-green waters
Shoot the curl: Vanessa was doing an excellent job staying on her board
Balancing: The 24-year-old star had a really good groove going
Ashley also took to the waves, showing that she can balance on a surfboard very well.
At one point the dark-haired actress was seen coasting a wave with a huge smile and raised arms.
Later on the exotic beauty was seen lounging on a yacht alongside Ashley, both wearing similar black bikinis.
Ashley's two-piece suit featured a halter top while Vanessa's was a classic string variety.
Vanessa kept her unruly tresses in check beneath a reversed black baseball cap, and reflective shades helped to keep the sun out of her eyes.
Surfing safari: Ashley raised her hands as she rode the wave
Beautiful balance: The Twilight star showed that she's got the balance and the stance down
Cruising along: Of course just coasting along with the current was fun too
Funny face: Vanessa stuck out her tongue mischievously at one point
Surfing made easy: The actress was gaining momentum and getting ready to stand up
The Twilight actress meanwhile wore no such covering, preferring to feel the sun from head to foot.
This was Day 2 of the Oakley Pro Bali, which runs through June 29 and is intended to raise awareness and funds for reef health and conservation through its partnership with Reef Check Foundation.
The girls looked pretty and ready for a good time as they arrived at the fundraiser's opening event on Tuesday.
Sporty: The 26-year-old actress sported a taut tummy and toned legs as she enjoyed the sunshine
Time for relaxing: Ashley and Vanessa enjoyed just hanging out with the other surfers
Exotic beauty: Vanessa got a chance to really let her hair down during this fun-filled trip
Beach style: The brunette star wore black bikini bottoms and a clingy white top part of the time
On that occasion Vanessa wore a Bohemian-inspired frock of red paisley design and high heeled brown leather platforms.
Ashley paraded her athletic figure in a tight-fitting canary-yellow dress that she paired with T-strap flat sandals.
Ashley's satisfaction was evident when she tweeted on Wednesday three simple little words: 'Life. Is. Good.'
Girls' night out: Ashley and Vanessa were festive as they attended the event's opening night bash on Tuesday

Jackie Stallone has spoken about her plastic surgery regrets – saying countless botched procedures have left her looking ‘like a chipmunk with a mouth full of walnuts’.
The 91-year-old socialite opened up for the first time about her health since she suffered a terrifying heart attack two months ago.
In an exclusive sit-down interview she also spoke about her ‘horror’ year in which she watched her daughter Toni Ann Filiti die in her own home – just six weeks after the tragic death of her grandson Sage.
Yeah, Jackie: Sylvester Stallone's mother Jackie relaxes in her pajamas whilst pictured at her home in Santa Monica
Defiant Jackie – mother of Hollywood screen icon Sylvester – told how she doesn’t fear death and is proud to look so striking when most people her age are confined to nursing homes.
But when asked if she still uses cosmetic surgery, Jackie said: ‘I do and actually I’ve got too much, I look like I've got a mouth full of nuts, it’s Juvederm (a cosmetic filler), too much of it. I feel as though I look like a chipmunk.’
Explaining what Juvederm is, she continued: ‘It plumps [you] up here (pointing at her cheeks) but it looks like you have a mouth full of walnuts.
However Jackie, who still attends red carpets in high heels and mini-skirts, is clearly a lot fitter than most people her age.
Describing how she has kept so fit and healthy, she says: ‘I use a bag of spinach a day, every morning for breakfast I steam a bowl of it and boil and egg on it. That’s the secret to my longevity.
‘Who do you know that looks as good at 91? I am healthy. Here I am with a husband half my age, he’s 60.’
At home with: Jackie Stallone relaxes in her Santa Monica home with her dog GG
Jackie, who lives in an upmarket condo a stone’s throw from Santa Monica beach, does tap dancing classes three times a week, has a physical trainer twice a week and spends two hours a day playing her piano.
She says: ‘I don’t waste my time going to silly Hollywood parties. You have to be a role model for seniors. And actually I became a role model for the movie stars at 50, because what they dread more than anything is getting old and shot. But I get more popular as I get older.’
‘Hollywood fears age, but I think old is coming in. I think cougars are coming back. We’d all like to get there, get there like me. Not on a walker, not in a nursing home,’ she said.
Asked what procedures she’s had, Jackie said: ‘I’ve had chemical peels, I’ve had three of those and about 50 injections. ‘
‘No Botox, I don’t need that, what I want Botox wouldn’t help. I don’t have wrinkles in my forehead, I genetically don’t have that, that’s something I can be thankful for.’
Jackie still passionately believes in plastic surgery – but thinks Beverly Hills doctors are overrated ‘hacks’.
She said: ‘I’m all for everything to make it (you) look good - anything and everything. But most of the plastic surgery in Beverly Hills is rotten. I have seen on TV and in person the biggest hacks. I will go to other states.’
‘Just because it’s Beverly Hills and they do the stars, but do you see what the stars look like? They look like they’ve been struck by lightning don’t they?' she added.
Regrets: Jackie Stallone has spoken out about her plastic surgery, claiming that it has left her looking like a 'chipmunk'
'You take Elvis Presley’s wife, doesn’t she look like she's frozen in space and in time. Like a statue, frozen.’
‘Did you ever see Bing Crosby’s wife Kathy Crosby? They took too much out of her eyelids and she looks basically like she’s got two headlights there.’
However one person Jackie admires is Joan Rivers.
She said: ‘I think one of the best jobs is Joan Rivers. But they can’t seem to do anything for her body it doesn’t match the face. Her body is all-decrepit and she’s walking like she needs a cane.
‘Her face even though it’s marble, I’d like to meet her doctor. I don’t know him but if I did I'd be there.’
Changing faces: Jackie, seen here in 1981, has had a number of procedures
Recently Jackie has had more to worry about than plastic surgery – suffering her THIRD heart attack in February (the other two both happened within three months of each other when she was 75.)
She said: ‘I’ve had three. My answer is screw it, if you’re going to go it’s a good way to go. You go in one piece and you go gracefully.’
Jackie blames the health scare on a devastating past year in which Sage died of a heart attack at just 36 and her daughter Toni-Ann passed away from lung cancer. The pair died within six weeks of each other last summer.
She said: ‘I saw my daughter die a day at a time of lung cancer, lying there, upstairs. I have on my counter with her ashes in an urn. Every day I couldn’t wait to go to bed at night and yet I hated to get up every morning because I knew what I was going to face, nothing was going to be any good. “I’d have to get out of bed and go to Toni Ann.
‘Too have Toni Ann here and then have Sage die - it was just too much.
‘When you see all of that you have to have a heart attack, I was due for a heart attack.’
Jackie spoke out just two days before what would have been Toni’s 49th birthday and Sage’s 37th (they were both born on May 5).
She said: ‘This time last year Toni Ann it was her birthday and Sage’s on May 5 and he came over to celebrate with her. Sage brought a little cake over and chocolate ice cream, and we were cheering her up. That was May.
‘Two months later he was dead and three months later she was dead. That was a horror. Who would have dreamed the following year both of them would be dead? It’s horrible.’
Asked if the double tragedy had made her make plans for her own passing, Jackie joked: ‘I want to be cremated, I don’t know if I should throw my ashes over Saks Fifth Avenue or Tuesday Morning (a discount department store). I haven’t decided.
‘I love both stores because if you don’t like something, they just take it back… everything!’
Proud mom: Jackie has revealed how she put her tough guy son Sylvester Stallone through tap dance classes as a child
Last month Jackie was photographed buying her groceries in a 99 cents store. Laughing about the photos Jackie told how she enjoys picking up bargain basement vegetables for her healthy diet – and she revealed Sylvester does too.
She said: ‘I go three times a week to the 99 cents store and I buy vegetables and I grind them up. I go there primarily for the spinach, broccoli, a load of carrots, and a stalk of celery. I don’t eat the canned junk. Then I put it in my juicer.’
‘I normally try to duck and hide. My kids sneak in there too and they try to hide too. Yes Sylvester does – he buys spinach, his brother Frankie too.’
‘Just because they have money doesn’t mean they want to spend money. I remember Barbra Streisand one day called and told me she was so mad because potatoes were like five cents more in the store, so she drove 20 miles to save five cents on a pound of potatoes, would you believe it? She just felt it was a robbery. You see these people remember when they were very poor.’
‘That’s where we’re cheap. We’re not cheap when it comes to spending money on ourselves, but when it comes to food, a bag of spinach is a bag of spinach.’
Old faces: Jackie famously came face to face with her son's ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen in the 2005 series of Big Brother
Jackie is very close to her sons Sylvester and Frank who both live in LA, and sees Sly ‘all the time’ and he often comes round to help her with DIY.
She said: ‘Whenever I want to remodel the house, or change a fixture Sylvester comes. He’s very creative. He’s the one who say’s ‘you don’t need that’, ‘more is less’. I will say ‘but I like this table’ and he will be ‘yeah but you don’t need it’.’
Hugely proud of Sylvester’s achievements Jackie still has embarrassing stories to tell about the Hollywood icon’s childhood.
‘He was so flat-footed when he was little and mortified, so I put him in tap dancing school when he was about four years old. He hated every day of it, thought it was sissy. Now he makes fun of me but let me tell you something, it strengthened his arches and look how it paid off,' she revealed.
‘All the Rocky movies are all choreographed and he did all the choreographing. He doesn’t know how to box anymore than I do, that was from the ballet and the tap that he studied.’
Jackie – who has spoken before about being no fan of her ex-husband who died last year aged 91 – told how Frank senior was far from polite when the old lady complained.
She said: 'His father Frank was nasty, he had no patience and he treated women like shit but he was a great hairstylist.'
Work it: Jackie reveals that she's most impressed by the work done on Joan Rivers and would like to meet her surgeon
‘So Frank Stallone goes over, yanks the towel off her head and sits her up and she lets out this big scream and he screams back at her ‘you must have wanted that color or you wouldn’t have got it that color’. Eventually he threw her out of the door. In those days the salon was as big as my patio so she wouldn’t sue us because we had nothing.’
Jackie gives Sylvester all the credit for his success, but is also proud of the colorful life she has led.
She claims to have had some type of friendship with a stellar list of celebrities through her 50-year career as an astrologist, including: Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Mikhail Gorbachev, Lord and Lady Mountbatten and even Nelson Mandela.
Among her closest friends in tinseltown now are Cher’s mum Georgia Holt, 86, Katherine Jackson, 83 and Zsa Zsa Gabor, 96.
Contemplating her 91 years, Jackie said: ‘I have seen everything, I’ve see children, I’ve seen grandchildren, I’ve seen fame, I’ve seen my son’s fame, I’ve seen my own, I’ve been around the world, I’ve had the best and the worst of it, the best and the worst of men, I’ve been engaged so many times, I’ve been married four times and divorced. I’ve left men at the church.
She adds: ‘I haven’t missed a damn thing, there isn’t a movie star I haven’t met, heads of state, all the royal families around the world I’ve met and really I’ve felt very much at home with them all.’

Madonna hasn’t lived in the duplex at 41 Central Park West for about four years. So the entertainer clearly wasn’t very attached to it when she put it up for sale six months ago for $23.5 million.
After getting no immediate bites on the place, the Material Girl seemed to be washing her hands of it when she lowered the price to $19.95 million.The New York Times reported on Sunday that Madonna ended up taking a very low ball offer of $16 million for the 14-room duplex.
A hedge-fund manager and his wife bought the condominium that boasts a view of Central Park.Madonna first bought the crash pad in the Harperly Hall building in the 1980s during her first marriage to actor Sean Penn. She subsequently bought an adjoining apartment and created a two-story duplex.
Fire sale! Madonna accepted just $16 million for the New York City duplex apartment she listed six months ago for $23.5 million
The 54-year-old Grammy winner has many homes but now mainly lives in the Upper East Side of Manhattan with her boyfriend Brahim Zaibat and her four children from various relationships.
The just sold duplex was renovated by Madonna’s younger brother, Christopher G. Giccone, and featured in Architectural Digest.
Neighbours in the building, long tired of the loud parties and paparazzi hanging by the entrance, were evidently relieved when Madonna left.
Like a prayer: Madonna and her family attended service Saturday at the NYC Kaballah Center
But they’re not getting rid of her so quickly. In 2008, Madonna snapped up a separate seventh-floor unit in Harperly Hall in 2008 for $7.35 which she still owns and which was not included in this transaction.
Jet setter: Madonna attended the Sound of Change Live concert in London June 1. She has several apartments in that city as well

What is it about Womens Sandals
that make them so appealing? Sandals are an extraordinary invention in my book. They give us a sense of freedom and a sense of relaxation. It feels as though all your troubles have dissipated into the air when you put on a pair of sandals. Sandals are so much more than something you just wear to the beach or when you are out on the boat. They can be worn anywhere at anytime.
Sandals come in all different shapes and sizes. You can find flip flop sandals, double banded sandals, Sling backs and even sandals that were constructed for hiking. Every style of sandal has its own unique look and often come in multiple colors. This makes it so easy to find something that you will like. Occasionally you will find a pair of sandals that are uncomfortable to wear but for the most part they are always the preferred choice of footwear.
Womens Sandals are often very elegant and most definitely not beach attire. You can find formal sandals that are ready for you to be worn to a wedding. They often come with shiny beads or lacing to give it that special look. Aetrex is a brand that has many womens casual sandals that are appropriate to be worn around most of the day. Each and every person has their own style of sandals that they prefer. If you don't have a preferred style then it is time that you find one.
Not only are sandals convenient to put on and wear outside, but it is much easier to find a suitable size. Many brands of sandals only offer whole sizes. Depending on the brand, you will not find a 9.5 size, just a 9 or a 10. This makes it easier to pick the right size which ultimately leads to less returns and hassle. Although, like every other style of footwear, I recommend you finding something you like and if at all possible trying it on. If you are on the internet and you see something you like, then at least take the time to research out what previous customers have said about the product. There is no better advice then from someone who has already experienced the joys or discomforts from that particular shoe. This can also help you find the right size. Usually people will comment on the fit of the shoe, either a true fit or a little short. So enjoy your sandals and the places that they will take you.

Armani mens suits
are famous all over the world for their originality, perfect tailoring, and the genius behind their designs. These tailor-made Italian suits cost more than the average suit but when it’s time for you to attend a very important event nothing presents you as a man of sophistication with a great fashion sense more than an Armani suit.
The founder of Armani House, Georgio Armani, never sought a formal education as a fashion designer. He attended the University at Milan Medical School right after high school and later started working at the Milan department store. His passion turned to fashion design and he designed his first line of men’s clothing in 1964. He reached design distinction in 1973-74 when he was the first to design a bomber jacket using leather as a fabric and became known for using fabrics in unexpected combinations.
Georgio Armani was the first to design unlined and unstructured jackets for men that were totally opposite of the traditional tailored look. The House of Armani still carries on its tradition of elegance, simplicity, and sophistication in Armani mens suits.
Most men find shopping for a suit a difficult but necessary task to accomplish. Armani mens suits eliminate all the confusion of style, fit, and color. You can be confident that expert construction, classic styling, and comfort are built into every suit. An Armani suit is a classic that never goes out of style so you never have to worry about spending a lot of money for a suit that is in style for only one or two seasons.
Armani mens suits have what the stylish, sophisticated man needs when you are looking for a suit for special events at work such as business dinners, formal affairs such as weddings, or even for attending worship services year round. You have a choice of one button, two buttons, or three buttons in solids or pinstripe in black, navy blue, or steel grey.
The Emporio Armani has several options. For example, the spring suit is constructed in light-weight wool voile with a three-button closure, and a slim fit for the trimmer figure. This black, lined suit has three exterior pockets with two interior pockets that are roomy enough to hold your iPhone and wallet. The pants are flattering to many shapes and sizes with a button closure and zip fly. The price tag for this wonderful, warm-weather choice is $370.00.
Another good choice in Armani mens suits is Emporio Armani in navy blue pinstripe with stitched trimming. This suit is constructed in wool voile that stretches giving you room to move. The suit has two buttons and one rear slit. The lined pants have the classic button with a zip fly closure.
You can draw wonderful attention to yourself by wearing the Emporio Armani in grey tone. This lined suit boasts a one-button closure with two rear slits that provides easy comfort and allows it to lie smoothly. The pant legs are straight cut to present a clean silhouette. Fine materials of viscose, mohair, and virgin wool combine to make this light-weight suit perfect for spring and summer weddings or other formal affairs.
This collection has more sheen and costs more at around $890.00. The Collezioni is fashioned in a light weight wool voile material in a neutral gray. It has three pockets on the outside of the jacket with comfortable boning built in for structure. The pants include a hook and bar closure and add to the slim shaping of the suit.
A formal wedding is the perfect place for the Armani Collezioni Satan Stripe suit. This elegant suit can replace a tuxedo with its one-button closure, three outer pockets, and straight-legged pants. The overall look of this suit presents a slim silhouette of stylish manhood as only Armani mens suits can do.
If you want to add Armani mens suits to your wardrobe the classic Georgio Armani suit in black has three buttons on the outside with three pockets in its lined interior. Boning is added for extra structure. This classy suit is suitable for fall or winter, never goes out of style, and would be a great first addition to your wardrobe of Armani mens suits.

Armani men’s suits
are considered a special skill of the design house, whose subtle attention to detail and impeccable tailoring elevate the standard suit to a menswear classic. Ever since Giorgio Armani outfitted Richard Gere in his men’s looks for the 1980 thriller American Gigolo, which follows the travails of a male prostitute whose work is driven by his expensive taste, Armani men’s suits have been a status symbol for professionals worldwide. Because the Armani house of design is attached to many different labels, which all target specific markets and vary in terms of price, there is some basic information, which consumers need to know before beginning their search for the perfect suit.
Giorgio Armani helms more than eight variations on the Armani label, from the haute couture line Prive to the youth-oriented mass market Armani Exchange line. The iconic Armani suit is available primarily through the Armani Collezioni and Emporio Armani lines. In addition to theses expensive labels, Armani also introduced the even more upscale Giorgio Armani Fatto a Mano su Misura, or handmade to measure, collection in 2006. The custom tailoring of the made to measure pieces can cost thousands of dollars more than the suits offered through Armani’s other labels, and have been featured in films such as The Dark Knight, Duplicity, and Eastern Promises. For consumers with an unlimited budget and a penchant for indulging in the highest-quality menswear possible, the handmade to measure collection is the right choice.
Even for professionals on a budget, Armani men’s suits from one of the high-end labels is a good choice as an investment piece. Because appearance and a polished self-presentation are essential skills in many professional circles, from investment banking to the practice of law, any advantage that can be obtained through a quality suit should be exploited to maximum effect.
Emporio Armani men’s suits are available online, as well as at over 140 locations worldwide. While a suit purchased through the official website will most likely cost between $1,000 and $2,000, other websites offer Armani suits at heavily discounted prices. For example, Italian cart.com carries Armani men’s suits for as little as 160 Euros, or approximately $240. Armani Collezioni men’s suits will also cost upwards of $2,000, but may be found for discounts of up to 40% through retailers such as bluefly.com
Armani mens suits are standout investment pieces that are unrivaled in the fashion world in terms of sophistication, reliable quality, and instant brand recognition.

Carey Mulligan is one of the most in-demand actresses of the year.So it's a wonder why no one helped the 28-year-old talent with her luggage on Saturday.As The Great Gatsby star made her way through LAX airport in Los Angeles, she looked more like a bag lady than a leading lady.
At first it seemed as if only two leather tote bags and a Barney's New York shopping bag were weighing her over.But when she turned around, the fair-haired beauty revealed a black canvas backpack that was almost bigger than her entire torso.The excessive luggage shrouded her otherwise chic ensemble.
She's got her hands full! Carey Mulligan made her way through LAX on Saturday with several heavy bags in tow
Packed and ready to go! The beautiful blonde's lithe frame was shrouded with bags that seemed to weigh her down, and she turned around only to reveal an additional gigantic backpack
A maroon printed boxy jacket - which Carey held closed as she walked - hung loosely over her top half.Ankle-length black trousers stopped at the ankle, allowing her pointed-toe flat sling-backs to make their pronounced statement.Though the Never Let Me Go actress concealed much of her face with oversized sunglasses, she appeared to be make-up free for her flight out of Los Angeles. Regardless of her luggage issues, Carey has heavier matters with which to be concerned.The actress is reportedly favourite to play Hillary Clinton in a forthcoming biopic about the former First Lady.
No help here! The Great Gatsby star acted independently as she carried all four of her bags throughout LAX
Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter the English starlet is set to top a host of names, including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone.She is set to have a sit-down with director James Ponsoldt, whose credits include The Spectacular
Keeping low-key: Carey covered up her perfect complexion with large sunglasses and a bit of wispy fringe
Now, and it is said both sides are eager to move beyond discussions. The indie drama will showcase the future Secretary of State as a young lawyer on the committee involved in President Richard Nixon's impeachment.It will follow her struggling to juggle her career with her unresolved feelings for future husband and President Bill Clinton.
Mod squad: The A-list actress stayed cosy under a maroon boxy jacket

Serena Williams is threatening to take women’s tennis hostage this summer.
11 years after she first won the French Open, she finally delivered an encore, an irresistible tour de force, here in this city she now calls her adopted home. And, frankly, it is hard to imagine anyone being able to prevent her successfully defending her Wimbledon title next month.The power and the glory of the Williams game has never shone more brightly, nor more destructively, than in the 12 months since she left Roland Garros as a first-round loser. In distress, she reacted to her shocking performance here last year by sending a message to Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou asking if she could practise at the tennis academy he owns five miles away from here. She wanted privacy to pound out her frustration.
Mouratoglou watched proudly as Williams defeated defending champion Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4.
He is listed as her coaching consultant. In reality, he is her partner — and he deserves much credit for Williams being focused on her tennis for the past year with the same intensity and passion that she brought to the court when she first arrived on the circuit as the younger sister of Venus.
Unstoppable: Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova to win her second French Open title in Paris on Saturday
For too much of her career, Williams has left herself open to the suspicion that she could be guilty of playing at being a tennis player. The game came ridiculously easily to her. She chose when and where to compete and, if we are being honest, there were periods of her career when her fitness and dedication could be questioned. But then the Williams family have always been a law unto themselves.
But Serena is a changed athlete. She has lost just three of the 77 matches she has played since she retreated from Roland Garros, forlorn and confused, in the summer of 2012. Since then, she has won Wimbledon, the US Open, two Olympic gold medals and now the French Open to acquire her 16th Grand Slam championship to move to within two of matching the record of two legends of women’s tennis, Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova.
Time to relax: Williams in the locker room with the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen
Towering above the rest: Williams poses with the trophy near the Eiffel Tower
Williams theatrically seized the title from Sharapova with her 10th ace. She threw her racket into the air and sank to her knees. She walked about dazed and elated. She fanned her face with her hand and she was, for all the world, at that moment a teenager in love rather than the oldest woman, at 31 years and 256 days, to win this championship since Evert claimed a record seventh title in 1986.
One step too far: Sharapova has now lost her last 13 matches against the world No 1
Appropriately, Evert was calling the game for an American network. She will have smiled at how overwhelmed Williams was because Evert rarely allowed her emotions to show in public.
Williams gamely opted to conduct her on-court interview in French. No one cared that she sounded like an American cousin of Inspector Clouseau.
‘Je suis incroyable!’ said La Williams. Probably, she meant to say, more humbly, that ‘It had been unbelievable’ rather than ‘I am unbelievable’, but she won sustained applause as she added: ‘J’adore Paris.’ And another cheer when she explained that, as she lived and worked in the city for much of the year, she now considered herself Parisienne.
She was the most loved American in this city. Sharapova had required her to fight, though. The Russian’s resistance was commendable, and she was not betrayed by her service, as she can be at times of stress. Indeed, she caught Williams cold at the start to lead 2-0.
Game, set, match: Williams is indisputably the best player in women's tennis at the moment
Williams was to blame, perhaps. She had extended the pre-match protocol by staying at her courtside chair for an age after Sharapova and the match umpire had gone on court to stage the coin toss. Her statement was unmistakable: this is my place, and my time ... and my show.
Sharapova’s own formidable groundstrokes could do nothing to make Williams offer a retraction. Williams had lost a set in these championships, against Svetlana Kuznetsova, but her other five opponents had taken between them a mere 11 games from her. Her tournament was a microcosm of her past year, as Sharapova acknowledged.
‘She’s doing what she’s always done extremely well, but she’s just doing it on a much more consistent level,’ said Sharapova. ‘I know that’s a pretty broad answer, but that speaks a lot. It’s not like she’s changed something extremely in her game. She’s always had a big serve, a good serve. It’s just become much more consistent.
Too good: Williams will now be the hot favourite to win Wimbledon when it starts later this month
‘That you can still do it at that age if you have the desire and the motivation. I think that’s an extremely great effort, a great accomplishment. If you’re at that stage in your life where you still are motivated to go out and win tennis matches — and that’s the most important thing, one of the most important things in your life — I think that’s an amazing effort.’
Once Williams levelled the first set at 2-2, she was never behind again. And when she broke Sharapova’s service to take a 2-1 lead in the second set, the match was all over but for the handshake.
And when the final ace from Williams scorched a path through the clay, she could not disguise her ecstasy. Mouratoglou applauded along with the other 15,000 spectators, but he knew better than anyone the journey Williams has made in his company.

Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the cool-kid fashion duo behind Proenza Schouler, are celebrating their label's 10th anniversary with an exclusive, albeit nostalgic, capsule collection.
Reworked: Two standout pieces from the capsule collection include a metallic bustier priced at $5,650, and an accompanying skirt for $850
The designers, who just won their third CFDA award for women’s wear on Monday, famously got their big break when they sold their Parsons senior thesis collection to Barneys New York.Now, they are re-releasing the label’s first runway collection from fall 2003 - with just a few tweaks - which will be once again be sold exclusively through Barneys - but nostalgia comes at a hefty price.Two standout pieces include a metallic bustier priced at $5,650, and an accompanying skirt for $850.
A leather coat that was originally painted white and trimmed at the collar with raccoon, also features in the reworked 19-piece collection, which goes on sale at Barneys in New York and Los Angeles tomorrow.
'[Barneys] started our career,' Mr Hernandez told The New York Times. 'So the idea of reissuing the first show felt full circle.'It just felt right to give them something special.'The Parsons graduates came up by way of jobs at Marc Jacobs (Mr McCollough) and Michael Kors (Mr Hernandez), and named their label after their mothers.
Their 2003 collection at the National Arts Club, courtesy, in part, of the Ecco Domani Foundation and Vogue, was tightly focused; just 11 pieces of mostly black and charcoal.Focusing on transforming basic wardrobe staples into accessible, but still desirable luxury items - like the slouchy jackets, painted leather, and even a humble hoodie worn with Fred Leighton diamonds.The designers, who have maintained their title as fashion’s reigning cool kids while establishing a growing business, remarked on their new capsule collection coyly: 'It’s officially vintage after 10 years, right?'

Nearly 20 percent of Californians live in places where local ordinances prohibit stores from handing out single-use plastic bags, but the rest of the state is safe - at least for this year- from bag-grabbers who tried to ban the lightweight grocery sacks in the state legislature.And Bette Midler is not amused.'Plastic bags are a scourge to the planet and everything that tries to live on it,' the liberal activist actress and singer told the Los Angeles Times after a state Senate vote came up three votes short.'Shame on them all for caving.'
'Miss Divine M' had harsh words for California lawmakers after the failed to pass a plastic bag ban. She's in a Broadway play this year, though, living in New York - not the Golden State
A star-studded lobbying effort crashed and burned after state Sen. Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles) Democrat. told fellow lawmakers that the ban could put up to 500 immigrant women out of work in his district.'I’ve been bombarded by phone calls by folks who live in Malibu and stars who live in Hollywood,' de Leon told the Times. But his constituents, he said - along with their jobs in plastics factories - had to come first.
Midler tried to rally the troops on Twitter, but her effort fell three votes short in Sacramento, California's capital
WASTE NOT? An estimated 380 billion disposable plastic bags are used in the United States every year
State Sen. Ricardo Lara, a Los Angeles County Democrat, said his district could lose 700 jobs, KQED reported. 'These are hard-working immigrant families who are under-educated, monolingual and are not going to have an opportunity to find another type of employment,' he said.Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt joined Midler in lobbying the legislature, along with Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson.After the ban was rejected, Midler took her acid tongue to Twitter, venting against Republicans that if they were \'looking for younger supporters,' they should 'grab 'em before they can read.'
Singers Bonnie Raitt (L) and Jackson Browne (R) joined Bette Midler in pushing for a bag ban, but legislators had other ideas
Squaring off against the Hollywood power players was the plastics industry, which argues that reusable cloth and plastic bags are little more than portable petri dishes since consumers almost never wash them.
Industry lobbyists also say the most common reusable bags are made in China, and contain high levels of heavy metals such as cadmium and mercury. Paper bags, another common alternative, are less environmentally friendly, they argue. And the trend of shoppers walking around stores with their own reusable bags has led to increases in shoplifting.
State Sen. Kevin de Leon, a Democrat, voted against the ban, saying it could cost 500 jobs in his district, including many held by Spanish-only-speaking immigrants with few other chances for employment
But what do you REALLY think, Bette? The famously partisan Midler let loose on Republicans after the bag ban failed
But activists advocating for the ban have said for years that disposable bags are a threat to wildlife, citing a handful of studies that industry insiders allege showed only a tiny impact on animals in the wild.
And state Sen. Alex Padilla, a Democrat from the San Fernando Valley area who sponsored the bill, said governments have to spend too much money cleaning up plastic bags discarded on beaches, in streets and in the ocean.Padilla said during a floor debate that bowing to industry pressure is 'like arguing that we shouldn’t reduce tobacco consumption in the state because of the impact on cigarette manufacturers, or wholesalers and distributors.''It’s like arguing that we shouldn’t fight the obesity crisis because [of] what it would mean for a company like Coke or Pepsi.'The proposed law would have banned the single-use bags from grocery stores with more than $2 million in sales each year, and from those with more than 10,000 square feet of retail space.Sacramento area state Den. Ted Gaines reminded his fellow lawmakers that the plastic bags have another important purpose, at least for pet owners.'I see a lot of people using plastic bags throughout my district,' said Gaines, according to the Sacramento Bee.'All you have to do is go to a local park where someone is walking their dog and you can understand how you can actually use the bag twice.'

An emotional Charice Pempengco wiped away tears after she ended months of speculation by going public about being gay.
The ex-Glee singer has followed the likes of her former co star Chris Colfer and Star Trek's Zachary Quinto by being open and honest about their sexuality.Charice, 21, made the revelation during an interview on Sunday with Boy Abunda, who hosts the Filipino showbiz show The Buzz.Scroll down to see video.
When asked about rumors surrounding her sexuality by the host she replied in Filipino: 'Opo, tomboy po ako,' which translates to 'Yes, I am a lesbian.'During the interview the talented singer became overwhelmed with emotion by breaking down in tears as she appeared to be relieved but emotional.'Now, I feel free. I can go out of the house without fear and be certain that I'm not stepping on anybody's toes,' she added.
Tearful: An 'emotional but relieved' Charice sheds some tears after she 'comes-out' during a television interview on Sunday
Speculation had been surrounding the young singer's sexuality in recent months after she had radically transformed her once ultra feminine image of long hair and dresses to a much more radical tomboy look.These days the girlie image has been replaced by a short boy haircut and much more androgynous style clothing.Charice - who was called 'the most talented girl in the world' by chat show queen Oprah Winfrey - was originally discovered on South Korean talent show Star King back in 2007.The singer then further raised her profile by appearing on the Ellen De Generes Show before releasing her debut album in the Philippines in 2008.
Feeling free: The singer appeared both emotional and relieved after coming clean about her sexuality
This in turn led to a recurring role in the second season of Glee further cementing her career Stateside.But until Sunday's revelation she had remained silent about her sexuality and even admitted on The Buzz that she feared that some of her fans would not support her once she came out.'But to those who can accept me, thank you very much,' she added. 'We are all equal, whether you are gay or straight.'After her admission on a separate video message aired on a different Filipino show:'I just want to say thank you, personally, to all my friends, to all the people who are supporting me, who are still there for me. Honestly, I'm very, very happy. I can't explain how happy I am right now hearing all the positive things.'

Standard bra sizes have barely changed changed since the Thirties, but the range has expanded - making bra shopping and fitting a confusing and exhausting exercise for many women.However instead of waiting for standard A/B/C/D cup sizes to evolve, it seems women are banding together to solve their biggest bra problems themselves in a forum called A Bra That Fits.Nearly 12,800 women use the thread, a subsection of Reddit, which is dedicated to helping women find their correct breast shape and true bra size, while offering measuring and shopping advice.
According to a 2011 study, 85per cent of women are wearing the wrong size bras. And A Bra That Fits stands by a simple motto: 'Because everyone that wants one deserves a bra that fits.'
A Bra That fits: Nearly 12,800 women use the thread, a subsection of Reddit, which is dedicated to helping women find their correct breast shape and true bra size, while offering measuring and shopping advice
Cup sizes are based on two measurements — the breast at its fullest point, minus the rib cage measurement. A one-inch difference, will give you an A cup; a two-inch difference, a B cup; and so on.
However this approach doesn’t account for different breast shapes, which frustrated women are well aware of.
Questions asked on the forum, such as, 'Need help finding 32F plunge bras (and other styles) with unpadded stretchy cups for my sister,' or 'Omega-shaped and a 32K/KK? Any ideas at all, please?' are answered with detail and precession.
And the forum's ability to connect such a diverse group of women with specific quandaries appears to be paying off.The major American intimate apparel manufacturer, Jockey, recently announcement it is getting rid of A/B/C/D cups altogether.
Instead, Jockey's Volumetric Fit System will measure the volume of a woman's breast, as well as an under-bust measurement, with the volumetric sizes running from 1 through 10.
Using Jockey's flexible plastic measuring 'cups' in varying shapes, women try each one on for size to see what works best - or has the least amount of 'spillage'.'It’s always a risk when you change something that’s been in the market for a very long time, but not only are we changing the fit, we’re changing the whole product,' Jockey's senior vice president, Sally Tomkins, explained to The New York Times.
