Yesterday our 44th President, Barack Obama, honored 21 recipients the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House in his last Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony. Among them were computer scientists/programmers Margaret H. Hamilton (whom led a team to create the on-board flight software for NASA’s Apollo command modules and lunar modules), and Grace Hopper (known as “the first lady of software”) are among the the 21 recipients.

Taraji P. Henson graced the red carpet at the AMA’s this monday in a Céline shirt dress and black lacy bra, while styling her hair in a sleek ponytail. The simplicity and length of the ponytail (and the fact that I love ponytails), draws me to this look.
