Kim Kardashian Spent Her Birthday in a Bikini During a Utah Getaway

The birthday girl shared several snaps of the stunning landscape, including one which she captioned, “Most relaxing bday trip! Amangiri.”

And while no celebratory cake was in wholesale bikinis sight (Kim K. took to her app to reveal that she was looking forward to Hansen’s cakes and “Khloe’s strawberry cobbler”), the Keeping Up with the Kardashians mainstay made a point of indulging in some special pancakes topped with berries.


‘Bikini Grandma’ Says She Still Drives Around in Swimwear

Not many grandmothers have been caught in a situation like this one, who put on quite the spectacle when she was forced to take a roadside sobriety test while wearing only a bikini.

The video of the exam became a quick internet sensation since the 2015 incident, with her grandson in the back seat.

For the very first time since the arrest, Patricia Ebel is opening up about being forever identified as “bikini granny.”

It all started when she slammed her BMW into the back of a Mustang in Naples, Fla.

She was driving her grandson home after an afternoon on the beach and she says she had two glasses of wine over a five-hour period.

Police put her through a series of tests, including lifting her leg six inches off the ground, which she appeared to struggle with.

“I couldn’t do that on a normal day,” Ebel told Inside Edition. “I wear heels all the time.”

In the video, she is also seen playing with her hair, which led many to believe she was flirting with cops.

But she said that was not the case, adding that she was “just fluffing my hair. It was wet.”

As for the bikini, Ebel still has it, despite receiving several strange offers for the skimpy swimwear.

“I had offers to buy the bikini,” she said. “I had a marriage proposal from Malaysia. It just got crazy.”

She admits that she still drives around in a bikini, but now “with a cover-up.”

Ebel says she plans to auction off the bikini with proceeds going to a veterans charity.

Can Vietjet President Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao generate sustainable growth past bikini-clad gimmicks?

Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao is the president and CEO of Vietjet, a budget Vietnamese airline firm that gained infamy after featuring airhostesses decked out in bikinis for inaugural flights.

After commencing its operations in 2011, Vietjet is now poised to surpass the national Vietnamese Airlines in passenger volume within the Southeast Asian nation. The carrier has managed to grasp 40% of Vietnam’s domestic market share.

The success earned her a net worth of $1.59bn (£1.23bn) and the 62nd spot on the Forbes Power Women list. She is also the second richest person in Vietnam, after real estate magnate Pham Nhat Vong, making her the richest woman in the Southeast Asian nation.

A Russian education and the creation of Sovico HoldingsNguyen Thi Phuong Thao received a Ph.D degree in Economic Cybernetics from the Mendeleev Institute. She also possesses a Bachelor of Finance and Credit from the Trade Institute of Moscow, and a Bachelor of Labour Management from the National Economics University of Moscow.

Phuong Thao’s fortunes were consolidated after she co-founded the conglomerate firm Sovico Holdings, whose investments extend to financial services, real estate, energy, and philanthropy. Her husband, Nguyen Thanh Hung, is the firm’s chairman. At present, Sovico Holdings possesses a registered capital of $53m.

Vietjet’s inaugural flightsThe success of Sovico Holdings was the first step in Phuong Thao’s ascent to becoming Vietnam’s richest woman.

“When my first son was only a few months old, I started to research the low cost carrier space,” Phuong Thao told CNBC.

“Then I spent the next 10 years researching aviation, meeting the CEOs of different LCC’s like Jetstar, Air Asia and Southwest Airlines.”

Vietjet was ultimately launched at the opportune moment when the Vietnamese government was allowing the entry of private business ventures into the airlines industry. The budget airline commenced its first flight in December 2011.

In the subsequent months, Phuong Thao adopted a novel method of generating a buzz around the company. Young and attractive women were appointed as air hostesses and made to wear bikinis on certain inaugural flights. While the act saw the airlines incur a penalty of $1,000 in the first instance, the publicity it created greatly contributed to Vietjet’s success. The flight crew also organised flash mobs and released music videos.

Phuong Thao does not necessarily view the tactic of employing scantily clad air hostesses as particularly sleazy or provocative. CNBC reported that in response to objections that the gimmick objectified women, the entrepreneur said, “In this world, there are a lot of beauty contests where the contestants wear bikinis in the competition. The bikini shows beautiful characteristics. Our message at VietJet is we did this for the benefit of beauty and happiness.”

Vietjet’s success amid the emergent budget airlines industryVietjet was able to reap the benefits of a burgeoning middle class bearing higher disposable income within the market. According to the CAPA Centre for Aviation, Vietnam was Asia’s fastest growing domestic market. Moreover, the frontier economy of Vietnam was one of the world’s fastest growing countries, with an annual GDP growth of 6.2% in 2016. By the beginning of 2017, Vietjet’s pre-tax profits rose by 91.6% year-on-year to $101.9m.

Vietjet has also managed to launch a successful IPO in February 2017, with the stock value surging by 20% during its debut on the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange. However, the budget airline’s fortune could still soar higher as it is in talks to become the first Vietnamese company to list its shares in a foreign market.

By March 2017, Vietjet owned 45 jets and offered 300 flights a day, which comprised of 63 domestic routes and over a dozen international destinations. The airlines had also managed to generate a valuation of over $1.8bn, surpassing the state-owned Vietnam Airlines in market capitalisation. Vietjet is set to expand further after placing orders for more than 200 aircraft from Airbus and Boeing.

However, the success of Vietjet should be viewed more cautiously. Despite the astounding success achieved in a remarkably short period of time, the airlines’ customer services and other operational methods may not be up to par with international quality standards.

Reviews of Vietjet on travel websites have been mediocre at best and terrible at worst. Aggregated customer reviews on Tripadvisor have awarded Vietjet a score of 3 out of 5, while Skytrax reviews have averaged to 4 out of 10. Based on current customer reviews, Phuong Thao’s ambition of making Vietjet the “Emirates of Asia” is still far from reality.

As the entrepreneur looks towards international markets, Vietjet’s business model can only go so far past provocative gimmicks. The company’s competitiveness against other popular budget airlines in the region, such as Air Asia and Cathay Pacific owned Dragon Air would be the true test of its ability to generate profits on a sustainable growth trajectory.

Trouble could also be brewing within domestic markets. The best way for Vietjet to improve its services would be through competition with other entrepreneurial entrants within Vietnam’s airlines industry. After Vietjet’s success as the first privately owned airlines firm in Vietnam, the government may look to liberalise the sector further.

Gymnast who confused vitiligo for tan lines and gave up her sport out of embarrassment embraces her skin by modelling in bikinis

A gymnast who gave up her sport out of embarrassment when she was diagnosed with vitiligo is now proudly baring her patchy skin in bikinis.

Dionne Lees, 21, thought the pigment-free patches that appeared around her eyes when she was 12-years-old were bad tan lines, caused by wearing sunglasses while out in the sun.

But after more white spots appeared, she consulted her doctor, who said she had vitiligo – a condition that affects one per cent of the world’s population.

In public, people asked her about her unusual patches and treated her like a ‘monster’, with parents pulling their kids away fearing she was contagious.

Dionne, a rhythmic gymnast, was too embarrassed to show her spots in leotards during competitions, eventually leading her to drop out – despite representing at the Commonwealth Games and international level.

Her hospital prescribed steroid creams and heavy make-up to cover her patches, which she wore until three years ago after discovering vitiligo model Winnie Harlow.

Seeing someone proudly embracing the condition helped her to appreciate the beauty in being unique and different, which has led her to now being comfortable in bikinis and skirts.

Dionne, a casino worker, said: “I was 12-years-old when my vitiligo first spot developed, I was in Lloret de Mar, Spain and I woke up with white patches on my eyes.

“They were two big circles of white and the rest of me was really tanned, I had been wearing sunglasses while lying in the sun so I thought must have been caused by that.

“People used to mock me, asking if I had worn sunglasses for many years or whether I was wearing fake-tan, being young and very insecure I would never wear anything revealing.

“I have had people scared of me due to fear of the unknown, parents people pulled their kids away like I was a monster and then others asked if I was burned in a fire.

“As a teenager, it started to bother me, I went to see a specialist who talked about make-up brands to cover my vitiligo.

“I used the make-up every day and then steroid creams for seven years every night before I went to bed in the hope it would make my vitiligo go away but it didn’t work.

“I stopped competing as a rhythmic gymnast, because I had to wear a leotard when performing, but after developing vitiligo I became insecure and struggled to show my legs.

“I would try to find tights to hide my white patches, but ultimately I quit and missed out on something I loved and a lot of opportunities because I didn’t want to show my skin.

“It wasn’t until seeing Winnie Harlow a couple of years ago that my perspective of vitiligo started to change.

“To discover there was a model out there with the same skin condition as me was a real wake-up call and I started to realise that being different is a good thing.
