Jennifer Lawrence is gearing up for the Oscars Sunday, but there was more excitement for the Silver Linings Playbook actress with the release of her new Miss Dior ads. POPSUGAR Fashion and Beauty director Melissa Liebling-Goldberg tells us about Jennifer's Dior connection in this POPSUGAR Rush, and we're also looking at top headlines including Megan Fox's reunion with her former foe, Transformers director Michael Bay, and Oscar Pistorius's release on bail.
South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius won a landmark appeal from the Court of Arbitration for Sport allowing the runner to compete for a slot in the Beijing Olympics despite a previous ban on his artificial legs.
Nicknamed "Bladerunner," Pistorius runs on specially-adapted carbon fiber blades and said of the ruling,
I am going to try and make it to Beijing. I have a few chances ahead of me and I will try to make the most of them. . . Sport brings people together and it doesn't divide or judge. This decision will open new doors for disabled athletes. Happily, the CAS considered the question a scientific matter and only looked to determine if my blades gave me an advantage or not. Handicapped or able-bodied, for me there is no difference. I'm just a sprinter and it is this that people see me as.
It was a big day all around for differently-bodied South African athletes. South African swimmer and amputee Natalie Du Toit qualified for the Beijing Olympics after finishing fourth in the 10K race in the Open Water World Championships.
Is the decision to let Pistorius compete fair? The swimmer doesn't use a prosthesis, while the runner does — should there be a difference? Is it a great victory for sports?
