How to make an otherwise standard black dress more exciting. I don’t mind the sash, especially from the front, the way the starkness of the white strikes a strong diagonal across the top of her body. I’m just not sure she needed it given how amazing her hair is. I am obsessed with this hairstyle. Full Article

I feel like this is one of the most sort of conformist looks I’ve ever seen on Alexa Chung - a pretty yellow dress that sparkles but not too much. That said, without both the ladybug and the silver-burst at the chest, it’s something different, something much less interesting.  Full Article

This might be the best dress I’ve ever seen on a pregnant celebrity. The baby actually makes the dress. Like, without the bump it’s a good dress, but with the bump there’s actually so much more dimension. And this is such a great look that I don’t even mind that she’s bellycupping. Full Article

I saw this one up close. It looks like an Elie Saab, it moves like an Elie Saab. And it is an Elie Saab. Which I never love but especially not on her. Shailene Woodley can work with a lot more imagination. And edge. There really is none of either in this dress.  Full Article

Dear Duana, It's taken me a long time to write this letter because every time I read the column about names it brings back very painful memories. At the time of her birth, her biological father and I were on the fritz but just trying to make it over the finish line of her arrival. I didn't realize how done he was until the baby came out. Full Article

Hayley, I broke my shoulder yesterday! It's the upper humerus so it is in a sling for four to six weeks. I am at least 50 lbs overweight but used to be very fit about five years ago. I was getting back into fitness with yoga and I had big fresh September plans for a lifestyle overhaul. Now what??? ___ Welcome to what we call adversity. Full Article

Duana Names: We’re In Deep

Duana! My sister is having her first baby in September, and we need your help. We are obsessed with names, and have been discussing this for years. I have a spreadsheet... We're in deep. We both grew up with unusual names for the time, which I think has made this so important. My mom, a Susan born in 1955, channeled her frustration at being one of 50 Susans she knew into picking some pretty great names for us. Full Article

I say “regular” because this is Carolina Herrera and Renee Zellweger has been wearing Herrera forever. So this shape on her isn’t new. I’m rarely going to love a red dress. And I’m probably never going to wear a red taffeta dress, so this is not my favourite. That said, because, again, she’s been a “regular” in this fit for a while, she looks good. Full Article

If you look too long the squares start buzzing, like an old timey video game. Funky, non? And it’s great as a jacket dress too. I don’t know why she went with those shoes though. Those straps are bothering me. There’s too many of them. And it’s not a good clash.  Full Article
