NEW YORK - Adam Selman presented his sophmore women's collection on the 22 nd floor of a TriBeCa office tower here Thursday during New York Fashion Week, adding outerwear and layering pieces to his athletic-meets-the-street flavored eponymous label. The inspiration: Selman, who has created costumes for a laundry list of big-name performers (most notably Rihanna, with whom he collaborated for her line, River Island) looked to current events for his second collection. “There was this hiker who was hiking in the French Alps about four months ago,” Selman said backstage during the presentation, “and found a box [full of jewelry]

Katy Perry is sporting a heart-shaped ruby ring on her finger, a gift from beau John Mayer. The ring set off a flurry of speculation that it was an engagement ring. But relax, everyone. It was a Valentine's Day gift, according to the jeweler who made it. [People] Blackeyed Peas frontwoman Fergie seems to be expecting a baby with husband Josh Duhamel, according to a tweet. That may be why she's recently been seen at public events wearing looser-than-normal (for her) clothing. Or she might just be getting a kitten.

Pop star Rihanna has been busy in the beauty arena lately. After her second clothing and accessories collection for British retailer River Island hit stores Sept. 12, the songstress started rolling out her fourth fragrance, Rogue by Rihanna, late last month. And her third makeup collection for MAC Cosmetics, RiRi Hearts MAC, launched Thursday at all MAC locations and maccosmetics.com .  Encased in rose gold packaging, the 20-piece fall RiRi Hearts MAC line ($16.50 to $44) includes all the essentials for a dramatic, smoky eye: eyeshadow quads in two cocoa-based colors, black mascara and liquid eyeliner,  brow liners and two sets of flirty false lashes.  To help imitate the star's standout pout, there are lip pencils and lipsticks in nude, frosty orange, dark plum and RiRi Woo crimson red -- a shade that sold out in three hours online when it was introduced in May and now also appears in the form of a high-gloss Lipglass.  A shimmery golden cream base, blushes in bronze, copper and coral, and two makeup brushes complete the mix.  A fourth RiRi Hearts MAC collection is slated to launch in December, reportedly adding makeup bags, nail polish and other products in pearly white packaging to the line.  In a spiked glass bottle with a stingray-like texture on the cap, the new Rogue by Rihanna eau de parfum (from $18 for a rollerball applicator to $69 for a 4.2 oz bottle)

Rihanna got a bloody knee during a tussle at a London club when a reveler allegedly threw a bottle in her direction. The "Stay" singer was in town to debut her River Island collection during London Fashion Week. Her show, which featured RiRi-inspired designs from her costume designer, reportedly started 50 minutes late on Saturday, according to the Telegraph. After the show, Rihanna hit the Box club in London to celebrate. As she was leaving with friends Cara Delevingne and Melissa Forde, a partygoer threw a bottle of a British energy drink at her, yelling something about RiRi getting back together with her controversial beau Chris Brown.

Most visitors to the walled city of Quebec go for the rich history, the breathtaking scenery and the romance of Paris right here in North America. But what about the country mice among us? Last fall, my husband and I, our two young children in tow, took a mini-vacation on Ile d'Orleans, a tranquil island in the St. Lawrence River. We could admire the skyline of the city only 15 miles away, yet feel as if we were in rural France.

To U.S. authorities, the three men are illegal immigrants from a volatile region who were arrested in roundups after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. To the villagers here in Pakistan's dirt-poor Swat River Valley, the men are local heroes whose foreign earnings are a vital source of income for the community.

Cairo has built itself a new house--for opera, that is. The $40-million structure, built by Japan on a Nile River island as a token of Japanese-Egyptian friendship, includes a main auditorium and two smaller theaters. President Hosni Mubarak and about 1,200 foreign and Egyptian guests watched the gala opening ceremony Monday night, which featured a mixture of Japanese Kabuki theater, Egyptian songs and the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

As tensions mounted over a West African land dispute, gangs of angry Mauritanians in their capital of Nouakchott sacked the shops of Senegalese, forcing the government to impose a dusk-to-dawn curfew. In the Senegalese capital of Dakar, 375 miles away, anti-Mauritanian violence was not quelled until the army was called out. The neighboring countries reinforced their troops along their Senegal River border. The violence has been sparked by a dispute over the right of Senegalese to farm on a river island.
