Nefertiti, Egyptian Nfr.t-jy.tj, original pronunciation approximately Nafteta, for (“the beauty has come”). Nefertiti’s parentage is not known with certainty, but one often cited theory is that she was the daughter of Ay, later to be pharaoh. Scenes in the tombs of the nobles in Amarna mention the queen’s sister who is named Mutbenret (previously read as Mutnodjemet).Another theory that gained some support identified Nefertiti with the Mitanni princess Tadukhipa.The exact dates of when Nefertiti was married to Akhenaten and later promoted to his Queen are uncertain. However, the couple had six known daughters. This is a list with suggested years of birth: – – Read more [Wikipedia] Pic courtesy of MsRosen

The A-list’s Halloween Costumes By Emma Sells | The A-list got into the spirit of Halloween this weekend and worked some pretty impressive costumes. Rachel Zoe donned a squaw costume, Liv Tyler and Gwen Stefani both appear to be chanelling a very sexy Cat Woman and Anne Hathaway went animal print crazy. Kate Beckinsale put some serious effort into her Bride of Frankenstein costume, complete with oppulent powdered wig, a patent corset and husband Len Wiseman decked out as the monster himself. But winning the best dressed award by miles are Heidi Klum and husband Seal. The duo are notoriously big fans of fancy dress – each year they renew their wedding vows in different costumes and Heidi’s annual Halloween party has seen her dressed as Shiva, the apple from the Garden of Eden (complete with snake) and arrive riding a horse. But we think they may have outdone themselves this time around with their superhero costumes. We suspect Heidi is going to be finding bits of glitter about her person for months to come. – – more on this HERE
