Elizabeth Banks and Diane Kruger at the opening of the Venice Film Festival tonight, both in white. And both white dresses work the party from the back. I have no preference. Neither one is lighting me on fire, even though Diane’s has a cape. What I’m much more into is what Diane wore at the photo call. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am a single female physician in her early 30’s - having my first child, a girl. I am still stuck on naming her and since I don't have a partner there is no one to help me come to a solid conclusion. For the longest time when I pictured by daughter I wanted to name her Isabella. Full Article

I’ll always love a look with the off the shoulder strap. And it’s perfect for her the way she’s wearing her hair, the length of it. She looks amazing in this dress.  Full Article

Hi Duana - I am a loyal reader of your column, and a serious fellow name nerd. My husband and I are expecting a boy - our first child - this September, and are at an impasse on names. Of course, we had JUST settled on a girl name immediately prior to finding out the gender. I have an uncommon (but not "made up" or "out of left field") name. Full Article

There are a lot of these dresses showing up at award shows now. Jennifer Lopez and the Jenner sisters seem to have a monopoly on them. To me, they’re all starting to look the same. Here’s why FKA twigs stood out to me though – and it’s all thanks to Rita Ora. Because Rita Ora wore the budget version. Full Article

That wet hair look is still a thing. See Beyonce at the Grammys and then again on the cover of Vogue. I don’t hate it on Demi Lovato. And while this is not normally a dress style I’m into, I don’t hate it either, on her. I think it’s because the blush rose pink looks so nice against her skin. Full Article

Hi Duana! We're expecting our second bundle of joy in September, gender unknown. We have our girl name set and ready to go, but struggling with the boy name. Currently the front runner is Liam (I know, I know, but stay with me) but I have a couple reservations. First off, I don't particularly care if my kid doesn't have the most unique name ever, but there's a difference between "fairly popular" and "#2 name in nameberry" popular. Full Article

Hayley, I really enjoyed your recent post about turning around bad summer habits. I am interested to know your thoughts on how to keep up the momentum on some good habits when summer turns to fall (and then winter). After getting a much-needed reality check on the scale at the beginning of the summer, I amped up my exercise time. Full Article

Hi Duana, I have had a name for a baby girl for years. It was the only name that I really loved, and I had it planned for a long time. Unfortunately, my sister in law has named her new born baby girl that. I am pissed and really upset, but there is nothing I can do, expect come up with a new name. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are on child number three and we are totally stumped on a name - somewhat due to our other children's names. We have a boy and a girl: Baxter and Margeaux. Those were both names we heard and were instinctively drawn to, oddly without realizing the 'x' similarities. Full Article
