Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi talks glamour and, of course, shoes

In some fashion universe, TV's fashion cheerleader Carrie Bradshaw is probably talking to her husband, John James "Mr. Big" Preston, and gazing at all of her shoes. After all, the former Ms. Bradshaw, a lover of shoes, missed her ferry ride home during an old episode of HBO's "Sex and the City" after slipping out of a designer shoe and crying out, "Wait, I lost my Choo!"

Former Wichitan’s work behind ‘Jungle Book,’ other animated movies

Barry St. John, a former Wichitan who now lives in Los Angeles, recently got the Cool Dad Award. He showed his 9-year-old daughter and her basketball teammates the trailer to “The Jungle Book” before it was out for everyone to see. That’s a perk of having your dad be the visual effects associate producer on a movie that made $103.6 million the weekend it debuted.

Five helpful hints from Rachel Roy's new book 'Design Your Life'

At first blush, fashion designer Rachel Roy's book, "Design Your Life: Creating Success Through Personal Style" (Dey Street Books, $26.99), which hit bookstores March 15, feels like another in a long line of motivational "dream it and you can do it" self-help guides - the kind that suggest getting where you want in life begins with dressing like you're already there.

The not-so-humble handbag: From stars to royals to everywoman, it's right there with us

They come with us, wherever we go, dangling from our shoulders or slung across our chests. They contain a random miscellany of objects that we deem necessary for daily function, or that we simply want to have with us. They are leather, canvas, nylon; small, medium, way-too-big; pouchy, boxy, compact, cavernous. They are our purses - and they are, in a sense, ourselves. Herewith, an assortment of miscellaneous facts, figures and fancies about purses, to mirror the hodgepodge currently residing in my own.

What a hand model knows

Adele Uddo is a model whose job is to stay mostly out of the picture. On a cover shoot for Town & Country, for example, Hugh Jackman perched on apple crates while Uddo stood beneath him, arm raised, so the only part of her in the frame was her hand cupping his face, her slender fingers tousling his hair. David Yurman bracelets were taped to her forearm so they’d hang artfully (and not catch Jackman’s beard).

Top items to buy (and not buy) in March

Over the course of the year, not many shoppers think of March as being a popular time to score a hot deal. It makes sense, especially considering that Presidents Day sales are over and many spring deals are yet to really kick in. That’s why it’s important to know which items you should snatch up now and which ones you should hold off purchasing.

Tattoo removal: It’s still imperfect

Years after Carly Cardellino quit her college sorority, she couldn’t leave behind one piece of it: a teal star and a red heart outlined in black, the group’s symbol, which she had spent $50 to have tattooed on her left foot during her sophomore year.

Wrist-worthy new smartwatches

Nearly a year ago, Apple released its Apple Watch, the extensively hyped smartwatch that many thought would shake up the traditional watch industry, or render it obsolete. Talk of revolution, it turns out, was premature. Just as punk rock gave way to radio-friendly new wave, the Apple Watch simply paved the way for the next generation of smartwatches. The new blockbuster feature? They look less like sci-fi gizmos and more like, well, watches.

Federal seismologist Justin Rubinstein, speaking Saturday at the Kansas Cosmosphere, said the state is seeing fewer earthquakes, in part because of state mandates. But more regulations are being looked at and the state remains among the most dangerous earthquake zones.
