  • A loyal dog was recently reunited with his owner after waiting outside the hospital for more than a week.

    The dog, named Seco, refused to leave his post outside the Brazilian hospital that his owner, Lauri da Costa, was admitted to after being randomly hit in the face with a rock.

    While da Costa was receiving care for his injuries, doctors discovered he had melanoma on his face and kept him longer to treat it, reports The Dodo.

The powder blue frock was complemented by elaborate beading, with a flounce of caped fabric at the back as the final touch. She finished off the look with black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Earlier this year, breakout darling Lupita Nyong'o showed up to the Golden Globes wearing a stunning Ralph Lauren gown.
