Hi Duana, My best friend is having a baby (gender will be a surprise) and wants to give it a middle name that reflects a (hopefully good) personality trait.

You know... by his standards, this is not the most tacky runway I’ve ever seen. The leggings, sure. But still... maybe it’s because it’s for colder weather. Or maybe I’ve just been desensitised by trash.  Full Article

Alberta Ferretti has always been like the Elie Saab of Italian fashion for me. Shrug. That said, I know this is a minority perspective because everyone has a boner for Elie Saab even though it’s the same sh-t all the time. And you’ll see a lot of it on Sunday at the Oscars.  Full Article

There were some really great looks on this runway, especially this green feather business attached. Wonder who will attempt it first. First person who came to mind, maybe because of the association, was Evan Rachel Wood.  Full Article
