  2. If you loved him, you'll love his cars because "Stone Cold Said So". The former WWE wrestler loves all kinds of rides and even worked part time jobs through school to get his hands on some absolutely fantastic ones. We had the chance to make a list of 12 cars that have been a part of his life. But before you feast your eyes on those beauties, here's a reminder of the kind of damage he did with some of the wheeled beasts through his wrestling career 1. Beer Truck Remember that iconic moment when Austin drove this beer truck into the ring and drenched 'The Corporation' with the barley brew? This beer truck can never be forgotten nor can the beer showers that Austin has given and taken during matches! 2. Monster Truck WWF Raw April 19 1999 And now Stone Cold is entering the arena in his monster truck and parks on top of The Rock's hearst. This is crazy!! pic.twitter.com/ZEfhlseAM8 — Cesar (@theredstandard) February 12, 2017 Crushed. To. Bits. 'The Rock's' Lincoln was crushed to bits by this intimidating Austin 3:16 monster truck. The truck's every bit the mean machine that Austin is. This stunt was near fatal for the wrestler, though, as it blocked off his oxygen supply by filling up the area with Methanol fumes. 3. Zamboni Oh lord the Zamboni! This particular one is burned into the brains of each and every WWE fan. Who can forget that glorious sight of Austin charging a zamboni into the arena and then proceeding to beat Mr. McMahon into a pulp! 4. Cement Truck If this did not bring tears to your eyes you're not human. That's a brand new Corvette that got served! More than the drowning Corvette, it is Mr. McMahon's heart wrenching expression that got us experiencing some serious heart burn. That truck though, supremely badass! 5. Crane To Destroy DX Express Bus There are two rides here, one that goes up in flames and the other that is responsible for its fiery fate-- Austin destroying the DX Express luxury bus with a truck-mounted crane is a spectacle and the rides involved for the debacle are even more exciting. Those are the mean machines Austin used for annihilation of vehicles as well as the ass of their owners. It's worth looking at some of the vehicles that have been a part of his day to day life as well. 1. 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula © Barrett-Jackson The first ride that Austin bought for himself while he was still at school, pure American muscle. A whip like that would be the talk of the town, especially when being driven around by a hot blooded teen. 2. 1972 Cutlass Supreme © Connors Motorcar Company This would be one of the cars that Austin would use to learn and practice driving. Clearly, he shared his love for performance vehicles with his brother, to whom the Cutlass belonged. 3. 1973 Chevrolet Camaro © Ideal Classic Cars Not long after the Firebird, Austin went on to get himself the gorgeous Camaro and that's quite an upgrade from his first ride. 4. 1978 Buick Century wagon © Wikipedia Austin took his first steps toward riding in the Century Wagon that belonged to his mother. 5. 1988 Dodge Ramcharger © ZombieDrive Finally pulling out the big guns! An SUV that looks like it was built to crush anything that got in its way. The perfect ride for the man who is renowned for destruction. 6. 1995 Ford Bronco © Car Domain The Bronco is Austin's favourite day to day ride and it's not difficult to see why, it's a notch above the rest. 7. 1996 Chevrolet Suburban © PicQuery A man of variety when it comes to his whips, Austin's garage also has pick-up trucks and he's known to be super fond of them, the Suburban is one of them. 8. 2003 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 © nbssportfishing Another pick up, like the Suburban, the Silverado is also among Austin's favourite ride when he's out of state. 9. 2016 Range Rover © Car Canyon Range Rover, because why not? You're likely to catch him driving around in this one. 10. Mercedes-Benz SL55 © Wikipedia We talked about variety right? Well, a muscle man can be fond of speed too and what better to experience speed than a Mercedes grand tourer? 11. Porsche Cayenne Turbo © Wikipedia Nothing defines speed and volume better than a Cayenne Turbo and that's precisely why it sat in Austin's garage, because he's nothing but definitive. 12. Corvette Z06 © Wikipedia Performance the American muscle way, and Austin is all about performance whether it's in the ring or on the road and he had three of them!
  3. The President of America needs no introduction, as the world is privy to his, well, charms, but how many of you know that he's quite the automobile enthusiast with cars like the Cadillac Escalade and Ferrari F430 entering and leaving his garage like nobody's business. Here's a list of 11 of Donald Trump's meanest machines that will definitely blow your mind! 1. 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud © N4BB What can we say? Trump's got taste and it's quite evident from his possession of this wine red luxury chariot. It's also evident that the now 70-year-old got the Rolls Royce quite early on. We don't just love his white pumps, we also love how the sturdy bumper is carrying the weight of them legs. 2. 1988 Cadillac Trump Golden Series Limousine © Yahoo It's got Trump in its name so you know that it's connected to him in a deeper way. According to a report, Cadillac and Trump designed this limo together back in '88 when the ambitious business tycoon suggested "big head room" and "all the assets anyone could want" in a car. We must admit, the vehicle is majestic! 3. 1993 Cadillac Allante © bazarnews.ir Probably the most stylish vintage vehicle Trump has in his collection. Imagine the president driving around in it with the top down, air coursing through his lush blonde hair, what a magnificent sight! Golden, much like the Prez himself. 4. 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster © Cosas de Coches Oh yes, Trump is a lover of fast cars as much as he loves elegance, and this Diablo is proof of that. The Diablo carries a 5.7 litre V12 engine that can pump out 529hp and hit 323 kmph. 5. 2003 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren © WheelsEncyclopedia So, we've already established that this president is not only obsessed with speed, but also with design. Not only can the SLR McLaren go from 0-100kmph in 3.8 seconds using 627hp in a 5.5 litre V8 engine, its appeal was enhanced manifold by its definitive curves. 6. 2007 Ferrari F430 F1 Coupe © Exotic Car Source No hyper horse like the Prancing Horse, and Trump knew that well enough to get himself one, and a bright red F430 is just the fix for a flight-yearning heart. Reports say he didn't drive too much with the beast that carries a 4.3 litre V8 engine pushing out 483hp at a top speed of 315 kmph and, in fact, had the car auctioned off this year. 7. 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom © Automotive-Art This is one vehicle that Trump has been seen driving around, and why not? The cabin might be built for luxury, but the driving experience is phenomenal in itself, especially when you know you can make it jump from 0-100kmph in about 6 seconds. 8. 2015 Mercedes-Maybach S600 © africametro An armoured vehicle, much like his current ride "The Beast", the S600 served up safety with style. The vehicle is resistant to ballistics and bullets and can sprint from 0-100kmph in 4.6 seconds. 9. 2016 Cadillac Escalade © The Austin Times The only SUV in his known collection, but also the only SUV worth owning, the Escalade is, without a doubt, a magnificent beast. 10. Cadillac One: The Beast © The Sun We've accepted now that Trump and Cadillacs go together and this isn't an ordinary wagon, it's an armoured limousine that has been souped up, keeping Trump's safety in mind. The vehicle is bulletproof and certified against ballistic impact. 11. Tesla Roadster © Auto Trader Gasoline guzzlers and EV's in the same house? Trump is clearly a man of surprises, and this Tesla Roadster (model year unknown) is proof of that. He can roll with responsibility and style, which is kinda nice, right?
  4. Hugh Hefner has left the Playboy Mansion to move on to a better life, although we don't understand how it could get any better than being surrounded by bouncy, gorgeous women. The world is surely going to miss the man who had an eye for curves, but hot women weren't the only indulgence the bunny lord fed. Hef's taste for sexy bodies transcended into automobiles; if you learned about the cars that entered and left his collection, you'd know what we're talking about. Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Designed for Rock'n'rollin', Hef's Cadillac is an absolute chick magnet. You can only imagine how many ladies would've fallen pray to daddy playboy's charms. The legend possessed the knack to draw in the ladies, making quite an entrance in a machine like that. © Archive Mercedes Benz 300 SL Mercedes was one of Hef's preferred brands, and why shouldn't they be when the very name of it suggests class and unparalleled style. This roadster was known to be one of Hef's most prized automobiles, you can see his affection for it played out well right here in the picture. © Gearheads Mercedes Benz 600 Pullman Limo What's the one car you'd roll in to make a lasting first impression-- this one's a no brainer, a six-door limousine, especially, a Mercedes limousine. When you pull up in a gorgeous limousine with beautiful women jumping and squealing with joy, making the car shake with vibrant energy, you know you've arrived. No wonder Hef was a consistent ladies man and a style icon for millions. © Pursuitist BMW 3.0 CS A fan of Bavarian engineering, surely, Hef also owned a statement BMW E9 3.0 CS. What could turn women on and leave a lot of men burning with envy than a playboy who drove around in a fast luxury car? © Celebrity Car Museum The Velvet Collection Hummer H2 Limousine Here's another limousine that reeks of pure debauchry. You know oodles of estrogen will pour out supported by some kinky ass background music if any of the Playboy insignia stamped doors opened on this truck-limo dressed up in virginal white. © Autobild Lamborghini Gallardo We've already established Hef had a thing for speed and that he wouldn't want to compromise on style for it. So when he bought the Gallardo, he knew style was a given but he didn't seem as impressed with the power specs so he, reportedly, made changes to the vehicle to up the speed-- lo and behold a beast was born. © Autobild Now, when Hef wanted to reward the Playmates, he would gift them luxury cars painted in pink. Here are a few vehicles that he was know to give away to Playmates of the Year that would make you wish you were a Playmate in his lifetime? It goes without saying you'd have to work very hard at pleasing daddy Playboy, lol. Volvo P1800 Both vintage beauties in pink are stunners and we're sure both like their ride hard and fast. © riveTribe Sunbeam Tiger There's another happy bunny with her pink convertible ride. © Positive Earth Blogspot Porsche 911s We don't know what's more appealing, the Porche or the lady perched on it. © Ottority Jeep Wrangler How many of you have dreamt of watching a Playmate drive away in an off-roading vehicle? © TexAgs B.M.W S1000RR Not a car, but not any less sexier, this Beemer deserved a special mention and has got to be the raunchiest Playmate of the Year reward, of all time. © BMWBlog
  5. Fashion designer Omar Mansoor presented his collection ? ?The New Empire? ? marking 100 years of the Russian Revolution at London Fashion Week over the weekend. Returning to the coveted LFW runway with his 13th collection, Omar Mansoor, in his latest collection, draws inspiration from one of the most radical events in history, with the bespoke eveningwear reflecting the period?s fashion explosion. The beginning of the 20th century saw fashion take a 360-degree turn from exotic dresses to fuss-free, uniform-like attires. Patriotism remained a constant theme and designers seemed to conform to a more conservative, communist code. However, like all changes, this, too, was a gradual process; a natural merging of the old and the new. Omar taps into this transitional period and captures it through a neutral, almost colourless palette accentuated with symbolic, embroidered Faberge eggs motifs. Featuring a range of distinct design translated through a mix of supple fabrics and an array of silhouettes, Omar brings his own fashion spin to the century-old narrative while staying on trend with modern day?s sartorial demands.
  6. Everyone knows Manish Malhotra—the name, his larger-than-life designs and the incredible moment he manages to create on cinema—especially through his image-altering creations. Like the iconic transformation of Urmila from Rangeela, or the incredible launch of boy-next-door-turned-***-objects, Varun (Dhawan) and Sidharth (Malhotra) from Student of the year. What we are trying to say is that Mr. Malhotra's impact on the Indian fashion and film industry is enormous. Manish is to fashion, what SRK is to Bollywood. But what's even grander is his crew—a group of old-school and new-age celebrities and supermodels that are as close knit as one can be. He's also the busiest designer right now. Reason? Just after his high-profile couture show at India Couture Week in Delhi, Manish is all set to showcase a brand new collection at Lakme Fashion Week as his grand finale collection. Here's what you can expect... MXP: Tell us about the Inspiration behind the menswear collection—the palette, layering, fabrics etc.. MM: My collection Tales of Indulgence showcases the diversity I wanted to bring into menswear fashion. We've curated looks using textured fabrics like tweed and experimented with various cuts and silhouettes. The colour palettes range from chrome and oyster to grey and ivory and will lend a young, glamorous element to traditional festive attire. MXP: Are suits the new sherwanis? Why? MM: Well, the bridegroom is changing and so are his fashion preferences. While they are Indian at heart, they're also highly influenced by social media. Bridegrooms no longer want to follow the typical trend of wearing a sherwani all the time. They've become more experimental when it comes to fabrics, colors, and silhouettes. With this collection, I am introducing a new kind of bandwidth of Manish Malhotra. I love getting that diversity as a designer, as a label, as a person and I am pushing myself to do a lot more silhouettes. MXP: What are the biggest trends for the upcoming festive season? MM: This season is all about opting for high fashion looks straight off the runway that showcase an intricate design story of feathers, sequins, tassels, fringes, off shoulder and cold shoulder styles reminiscent of the fearless flapper trend of 1920's. One can beautifully play with pastel hues of ivory, grey, beige, lilac, aqua and baby pink, which are replacing the monotony of the traditional colors. For women, it will be cocktail dresses, flowy gowns with trains. For men, it will be fitted tuxedos, dinner jackets, bow-ties in colourful fabrics. MXP: What can we expect from the finale collection? MM: My closing show at Lakmé Fashion Week on 20th August will for the very first time present bespoke suits for men. After a successful menswear show at LFW a few seasons ago, the new collection Tales of Indulgence is a step forward through a renewed focus on the segment. With this collection, we've taken a step forward in terms of innovation and design by also introducing a bespoke tailoring service that will be available at our flagships store in Mumbai and New Delhi. The collection for women has been given a modern twist keeping it traditional and festive at the same time. Silhouettes like the stitched Sari and cape Kurtas in a colour palette including chrome, oyster grey and ivory lend a young, glamorous element to the festive attire. For the first time, we have also used black extensively in the collection. The collection accentuates the sensuality of the female form by using straight lines, flowy fabrics and low cuts in its construction which gives it a modern touch.

  8. Roberto Polo. (Left Photo: Luk Vander Plaetse via Bruzz.com) TOLEDO: Cuban-American multimillionaire Roberto Polo will loan his collection of 7,000 contemporary paintings, sculptures, and photos to Spain for 15 years, the country's biggest cultural deal in over 20 years, officials said Tuesday. The collection, which includes works by German artist Max Ernst and US sculptor Martin Kline, will be shown at museums in Toledo and Cuenca in central Spain, the president of the regional government of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano Garcia-Page, told a news conference in Toledo. After 15 years the loan period may be extended or the works may be donated to Spain, he added. Garcia-Page said this was "the most important cultural operation for the country" since the Spanish government in 1993 agreed to buy the prized art collection of the Swiss industrialist Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza. Officials did not give an estimate for the value of the works that will be loaned but top-selling daily newspaper El Pais said the collection is insured for $50 million (44 million euros). "I have always loaned works, and in the end if they have been well taken care of, valued and respected, I have always ended up donating them, but I first want to have proof that they are valued and respected as they should," said Polo, who lives in Brussels where he owns an art gallery that bears his name. "I am going to turn 66 in August and in 15 years I will not have many more years left," he added. Polo, whose parents moved to Miami from Cuba after the Castro regime seized their assets in 1961, said he wanted to die "with empty hands" and without taking "anything to the grave". The regional government of Catilla-La Mancha will refurbish the Santa Fe museum in Toledo, and a public records archive in Cuenca, to display the works but Polo will receive no money for the loan of the works, Garcia-Page said. The works will start to be displayed in Toledo from the middle of 2018, and in Cuenca shortly after, a spokesman for the regional government said.
  9. The owner of the largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia said on Monday a longtime friend had robbed him of more than 100 items, including rare vintage US and foreign carded action figures. Steve Sansweet, who runs Rancho Obi-Wan, a non-profit museum north of San Francisco, said the theft took place over several months in late 2015 through 2016. "There were more than 100 valuable items stolen, the majority of them vintage US and foreign carded action figures, many of them rare and important pieces," Sansweet said in a statement. Sansweet, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who worked for 15 years as head of fan relations at Lucasfilm before retiring in 2011, identified the suspect as Carl Cunningham, a well-known Star Wars collector and R2-D2 builder from Marietta, Georgia. A spokesman for the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office confirmed to AFP that Cunningham on March 13 had been charged with felony grand theft. Reading from the charge sheet, Sergeant Spencer Crum said Cunningham had visited Sansweet three times in the past year "and had access to Sansweet's museum as he voluntarily dusted pieces and did cleanup work around the museum." Crum said the items stolen were estimated to be worth $153,000. The theft came to light after a major collector and owner of several Star Wars websites raised the alarm upon discovering that one of his collectibles -- a rare prototype rocket-firing Boba Fett action figure -- was stolen from his Texas warehouse. A toy dealer subsequently came forward to say he had purchased the item as well as a number of other rare Star Wars collectibles from Cunningham. Sansweet said he had known Cunningham for many years and considered him a good and trusted friend. "I, and the staff at Rancho Obi-Wan, are devastated that he is the alleged perpetrator of the thefts," he said. "Not only have important items been stolen from the collection, but also our time, energy and ability to trust unconditionally have taken a blow." He appealed to anyone who may have purchased any stolen Star Wars collectibles to come forward. "It is our goal to resolve this situation as quickly as possible and to continue to use the collection at Rancho Obi-Wan to 'Inspire through the Force' despite the destruction caused by one person," he said.
  10. LOS ANGELES: Fringed capes, pleated skirts, and bolero hats peppered the runway at the Dior Cruise 2018 collection on Thursday as the luxury Parisian label spun its own twist on music festival fashion. "Dior Sauvage" drew inspiration from the scenic landscapes of Los Angeles and the show took place outdoors against the backdrop of the Santa Monica mountains at sunset. A dusty catwalk in the hills of Calabasas was where models wearing Western-inspired outfits fringed with Mexican or Peruvian patterns showcased dresses. "Hollywood, it's about celebrity, red carpet, but I think there is also another side of Los Angeles," creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri told Reuters before the show. "The natural element, open space ... in some ways, Dior says that California is a new paradise," she said. Chiuri admitted prior to the show that she wants the collection to be seen as a number of pieces rather than complete outfits. Dior Cruise 2018 Collection – Calabasas, California, US, May 11, 2017 - Actress Charlize Theron attends. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni Models walked between tents, wearing pleated skirts with horses painted or birds embroidered, wide-legged printed trousers, capes with fringe details and belted furs, accompanied by studded bolero hats and laced boots. The collection was a modern-day spin on styles of the old West, with a colour palette of dusky reds and oranges that accented earth tones and textured plaid. Layering was a key element to the collection that elevated the fashion often seen at festivals such as Southern California's Coachella. "I want to have a dialogue with the new generation of Dior women, that they can choose the piece, they can mix in different ways," Chiuri said.

REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni Popular with celebrities, the Dior show drew Rihanna, Charlize Theron, Kate Bosworth, Demi Moore, Nick Jonas, and Brie Larson. "It's always a pleasure and a luxury to wear Dior," Rihanna told Reuters. "For one, it's expensive (laughs), for two, it's always well-made and it's always something that allows you to express your femininity in the highest level." South African actress Theron said the rustic, rural setting of the show was "somewhat magical. It reminded me of home." Christian Dior Couture, recently acquired by the world's largest luxury group, LVMH, has 198 stores in more than 60 countries. Sales for the brand have doubled over the past five years.

REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni Dior is the latest luxury label to head to Los Angeles, following Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry and Tom Ford, which showcased collections in the past two years. "It's good business, it's good inspiration," Sidney Toledano, president and chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, said of Los Angeles. "You have a lot of people from Europe, from France, from Italy and people coming from Asia, so it's becoming a cultural hub ... there is a fantastic energy," he added.

  11. In 1931, France's football team defeated England for the very first time in an international game. Ecstatic with their maiden win over mighty England, the Frech players asked their counterparts if they could have their jerseys as keepsakes, and the Englishmen obliged. While that game will always be monumental in France's ever-evolving football history, the jersey exchange between players after the match has gone on to become a gentlemanly ritual in the sport. In a show of mutual respect, the footballers, over the years, have been seen closely following the tradition. Thus, it is understandable for footballers to boast of some iconic jerseys from their playing days. But, when you are the world's best footballer, you can have anyone's jersey you want. And, Messi's unreal jersey collection is a testimony to that. A post shared by Leo Messi (@leomessi) on May 9, 2017 at 12:26am PDT The Barcelona talisman unveiled his incredible trove of dozens of football shirts (undoubtedly the best jersey collection in the world) from every corner of the globe. The Argentine took to social media and shared a photograph of his room full of football jerseys. With Messi and his son Thiago sitting in the middle, the photo captures the room with around 70 jerseys spanning from floor to ceiling, with some laid out in the floor and above his head. © Instagram/leomessi For anyone who loves watching the beautiful sport, Messi's magnificent collection of football shirts is a sight to behold. From old legends like Francesco Totti and Thierry Henry to current stars including Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez, the room is full of iconic jerseys that we can only dream about. © Instagram/leomessi While the 29-year-old surely has one of the most sought-after jerseys in world football, there was one notable ommission - Cristiano Ronaldo. © Reuters Despite Barcelona's rivalry with Real Madrid, Messi is clearly happy to put the Los Blancos memorabilia on display. The shirts from both Iker Casillas and Raul are clearly visible in the picture, so where is Ronaldo's jersey? Bizarrely, Messi's collection also includes an odd West Ham jersey that belonged to Manuel Lanzini who never actually played alongside Leo for Argentina. If that's not enough, there's even one shirt from Wigan Athletic flop, Mauro Boswell, who now plays for Leon. © Instagram/@manuulanzini And, yet there is no sign of Ronaldo's iconic No. 7 jersey. However, unless there is one of Ronaldo's Real Madrid or Portugal shirts tucked away in the corner somewhere, it sure looks like either the Portuguese captain has never given Messi an item of clothing or the Argentine has never asked for one. Whatever the reason, both footballers are actually good friends and are in no way sworn rivals or enemies. Right? RIGHT?
  12. The Weeknd a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye is literally the buzziest (and busiest) entertainer out there. Apart from having a chart-topping album, and a potential new girlfriend (hello, Selena!)—it was revealed today that the 'Starboy' singer isn't only collaborating with sneaker giant Puma, but with high-street clothing giant H&M too. The collection titled, 'Spring Icons Selected by The Weeknd'—reflects his badass streetwear aesthetic. In other words, think of this as shopping for The Weeknd’s concert merch (just like Justin Bieber’s too-cool-for-school merch that is sold out everywhere!). Speaking about the collection, the singer said, "I love the mix of urban pieces like bombers and hoodies with tailored shirts and blazers. Every piece is both effortless and fresh, which is just how menswear should be." © H&M The collection—that drops nationwide on March 2—includes bomber jackets (obvs!), hoodies, jersey tees, minimal shirts, tailored trousers, a motorcycle jacket and wait for it...a black, double-breasted coat (need!) © H&M
