It’s red and it gives you some side breast and there are ruffles arranged to look like they’ve been slashed so I feel like this might be a popular look for many of you. But I hate it. I hate how jarring the black ribbon looks at the back. I hate how sharply the black shoes contrast at the bottom. Full Article

One of the many, many things I love about this column and all of you who contribute is that it is so unabashedly a sociology exercise. We discuss names, and sooner or later those names apply to someone – and you can’t not react.  I knew that there would be people mad because I didn’t like certain names. Full Article

I don’t like what’s happening here. This dress. There’s too much of it. Looks great on the top but the bottom is … too heavy? Too wide? It’s like what’s going on above the waist doesn’t match what’s going on below the waist, non? The skirt wants to be petticoats and balls. Full Article

I love a long-sleeved shirt dress. It started in the 90s. Calvin Klein, Christy Turlington. To me there’s nothing sexier. As for those shoes, on anyone else I’d burn them. But Zendaya, somehow, makes them tolerable.    Full Article

Hi Duana - Our family is expecting the addition of a baby boy the beginning of July. He is eagerly awaited by a big brother Rocco and big sister Tessa. We have a single syllable Chinese last name. You can see that we lie somewhere in the middle of quirky and traditional as far as naming goes. Full Article

When you are training for an event, eating becomes less about trying to count calories and more about fueling your body efficiently to make sure that you are getting the most out of your long training sessions. If you are dragging yourself out of bed, early on a Sunday morning to pound the pavement, you want to make sure you have fueled it properly or you might as well press snooze and catch a few more Zs. Full Article

She looks AMAZING in this jumpsuit. And I love that the pants are cut at the perfect length. It’s so perfect I can’t even hate on the shoes, not normally my preference but because what’s happening up top is so great, it doesn’t matter.  Full Article

I don’t actually know if it’s crushed velvet. I just want it to be. And the way it’s folding leads me to believe it’s not a hard material. Whatever it is I love it. She’s wearing it two ways – around her shoulders and with her arms through. I actually prefer it with the arms through. Full Article

I’m telling you! This girl is on a style run! Click here for my post last week about her recent red carpet choices – they’re impressive. And this is another. You know what makes it for me? The shoes. Not a lot of people would have picked these shoes. Full Article

Hi Duana, So here’s the dilemma, I'm having quadruplets! I’m having two girls and two boys.So far we have three out of the four names settled but are having trouble cracking the last name for our boy. For the girls we have Remy and Lore, which is German and pronounced like Laura but we know most people will say Lore which we are cool with, and have actually debated on which pronunciation we like more. Full Article

Hi Duana, Looking for some name help and due in 3 months!! My hubs loves the name Frank....and I just can't. All I think of is frank the tank or a kind of chubby / weirdo kid. To be fair, I love that the name is super classic but not popular. He likes that it ends with a K sound (and everything else about it). Full Article

Rosamund Pike wore 3 white dresses in Shanghai this weekend. I prefer the daytime. The shirtdress. It’s Erdem. It’s SO perfect I feel like making Ben Affleck-like promises to it. Like, if I buy you, I’ll never buy another dress again. Of the other two, I prefer the loose fitting, flared hem over the lace. Full Article
