With 19 medals in Michael Phelps' 8 year Olympic run he can now call himself the most decorated Olympic Athlete in history with an astonishing 19 Olympic Medals. 8 in Sydney, 8 in Beijing and so far 3 in London. I would be as excited as Phelps is in the photo above if I had that many medals...

I am loving this look from Hayden Panettiere, which she wore to the TCA Press Tour Party Friday night. The floral flirty dress has an amazing balloon shape to it and hugs Hayden in all the right places, not that she has any wrong places. Her simple waves and red lips were the perfect finishing touches. However, her shoes... OMG THEY ARE AMAZING!! And I would say the best part of her outfit. LOVE THEM :)
