Tweet The Screen Actors Guild Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and the only thing that matters is that Joan Collins was there. Obviously, she gets my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award because no one can compete with Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan. I’m surprised that the other celebrities […]

Tweet I wore a houndstooth Versace dress, purchased before 2005, to a wedding in this December. I had previously shown it on the blog in 2010 and 2008, but I just found a photo from 2006 that I’d forgotten about. This isn’t a full-length picture, but it gives you a good look at the mesh […]

Tweet While watching the Golden Globes last night, I was captivated by Jane Fonda. Jane presented the award for Best Actor in a Comedy alongside her 9 to 5 partner-in-crime, Lily Tomlin (I wished Dolly Parton had joined them!). I enjoyed the Jane-Lily banter. Jane said, “You know, it’s nice — it’s nice — that […]

Tweet MrB and I went to a screening of the new movie adaptation of Annie last night. Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) makes an adorable Annie and Jamie Foxx plays Will Stacks, the updated version of Daddy Warbucks. I enjoyed watching a little boy next to me literally sitting on the edge of […]

Tweet I was managing editor of People Magazine’s website in 1999, and I’ve subscribed to the magazine ever since I left that job. Today, I was flipping through the Sept. 15, 2014, issue and came across an item about the recent celebrity nude-photo hacking. Because it slut-shamed and blamed actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate […]

Tweet On second thought, don’t answer that “Who wore it best?” question in the title of this post! I can’t compete with a girl who is young enough to be my daughter. But here is 17-year-old Kylie Jenner — part of the Kardashian family — wearing a vintage Moschino dress in a shoot for Miss […]

Tweet Awards-show fashion has been all about the men this year. Once again, my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want award goes to the dudes. My Emmy favorites were Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, stars of HBO’s True Detective, who wore coordinated tuxes in autumnal hues. #454163748 / gettyimages.com Five years ago, people would have […]

Tweet I had forgotten this until I wrote about my Victoria buckle ring recently: In 2009, Miley Cyrus borrowed that ring for appearances she was making to promote her Hannah Montana movie. You can see it on her index finger in this photo. #86043282 / gettyimages.com That ring would be even more appropriate for her […]

Tweet Since learning of comedian Robin Williams’s death yesterday — apparently by suicide — I keep returning to a November 2009 interview that he did with Dave Itzkoff for the New York Times. Williams was nearing the end of his “Weapons of Self Destruction” stand-up tour, which had been interrupted that March by open-heart surgery […]
