I spent 10 years in business journalism, and the gyrations of the stock market are more than enough to bring back the memories, thank you very much. I wouldn’t normally seek out a movie related to the post-housing-bubble foreclosure crisis, but I’m glad MrB and I caught a screening of 99 Homes last week. I […]

Because it is Lana del Rey’s 30th birthday (ah, youth!), it’s time for me to post a few photos of her performance at the Governors Ball music festival earlier this month.

On Sunday, Taylor Swift wore a white, cut-out jumpsuit to the Billboard Music Awards, and retailer Nasty Gal proudly claimed credit for it, as one does when a celebrity wears one’s designs.

First, let me ask … … got into people at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala last night? In 2013, when the gala celebrated the opening of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit, I was let down by the dearth of crazy, punk-inspired fashion. There were a lot of standard-issue, red-carpet ballgowns that […]
