Salma Hayek in red leather, not unlike what was underneath Julianne Moore’s red velvet – click here for a refresher. And last night in a gown stitched in gold that was meant to look like grommets? I feel like it would have been effective if it was just the skirt that was patterned instead of the entire dress. Full Article

The f-cking pantyhose dresses… It’s just never going to be my thing. It will never be fashion forward. It will never be NOT tacky. Having said that, it’s Cannes. Country music award shows and Cannes keep pantyhose dresses alive. Also, Jennifer Lopez.    Full Article

I wanted more from Sienna on opening night than a one shoulder dark blue gown. I know she’s trying to present herself as a Serious Actress but by the weekend, please let us see some more fun. Because if the entire festival is going to be this vibe, I’m bored.  Full Article

Lace is never my first choice. But I do like how pretty the lace is here on CZJ’s dress, around the neck and the arms. It’s the cap sleeve I think that sets it apart.  Full Article

Hi Duana, I am writing on behalf of my sister who is in desperate need of a girl name.  It's her 4th baby so as you can imagine it just gets harder after each one to pick the next name.  This will be the 3rd girl.  The other 3 children are Willa, Rennie (girl - it's a family name) and Charles. Full Article

Hi Duana, I love reading your Name Nerd column! I find it fascinating how names have certain connotations/perceptions and how this spills over to personality formation, career developments, etc... In my situation, my legal name first name is Tri, middle name is Duc, last name is Luong. My full legal name makes it obvious that I am of Asian heritage. Full Article
