I am ordinarily not a fan of taffeta. There are better materials, less limiting materials. Taffeta can usually only be one thing – a princess prom gown which… I mean the princess prom gown, I guess, has stood the test of time, so I suppose it will never go away – but when you’re on a red carpet, why not graduate out of the prom?  That said, if it has to be taffeta, black taffeta is probably the least offensive because it can absorb and dull the light and make the dents that inevitably show up on taffeta less obvious. Full Article

There are a lot of things I love about this pantsuit on Tessa Thompson. First, this shade of champagne, or whatever you want to call it, is a great colour on her. Also, right now, I’m all about finding an all-sequin tuxedo for an upcoming event. So I’m really happy to see that they’re out there. Full Article

I have come to love a pre-bloused dress. I don’t think, 10 years ago, I would have considered it. But I love it now and have learned to appreciate that it’s a tricky design feature that, when done well, and it’s done very, very well here, is a wonderful example of construction and tailoring. Full Article

I don’t know why green always shows up on red carpets in singles. As in, after award shows, there are often fashion headlines like, “the red parade at the Oscars!” or “silver storms the red carpet at the Golden Globes!. But… is it ever green? And if not, why not? When someone wears green, they’re often the only person wearing green. Full Article

Duana Posted by Duana at January 11, 2018 21:13:10 January 11, 2018 21:13:10

Hi Duana, I'm so excited to be writing to you! When I first stumbled across your column I was pretty stunned - I had no idea other "name nerds" existed. I still have a beaten-up bright pink baby name book (straight from the 80s) that has my 10-year-old scribbling all over it with my favorite names. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: 4 fitness forward questions & answers

By way of background, my husband and I kind of ‘let ourselves go’ a little bit, with three kids in six years and the general chaos that ensues. Both our diet and fitness levels suffered as a result, and the weight slowly but surely crept on. In August we decided to make a change, and started exercising regularly and eating better (although we still indulge in wine, cheese, and the like on weekends, but we’re pretty good during the week). Full Article

I’m trying to remember the last time I wore red pants. The only pair that comes to mind is from the 90s, red velvet, I think they were from the Gap. Velvet doesn’t stretch so I feel like they weren’t comfortable but I do think I loved the look. Why is that I’m into red pants but not a red dress?  Here’s Angela Bassett in a pair of red pants and a black one-shoulder top. Full Article
