Although there is certainly no shortage of movie-merchandise tie-ins pegged to Disney’s live-action version of “Cinderella” (think fairy godmother wands and Bluetooth speakers shaped like pumpkin carriages), let’s be honest: This is one fairy tale that’s all about the footwear.
LOS ANGELES - Images from spring runway shows and ad campaigns are so flush with celebrity sons and daughters they look as if they could have been ripped from the pages of a Malibu High yearbook. The luxury-brand love affair with second- (and in some cases third-) generation headliner royalty was clear when Tommy Hilfiger showed the spring collection at New York Fashion Week last September. Georgia May Jagger (Mick's daughter) strutted the catwalk alongside Ella Richards (Keith's granddaughter) and Kendall Jenner (daughter of reality TV's Bruce and Kris Jenner).
From flare leg pants to rock festival chic, spring’s big fashion statements are daring and fun to wear. But since these trends may only be sticking around for a season, don’t break the bank when trying them. Turn to wearable (and affordable) versions that incorporate the hits, without the splurge or lifelong commitment.
The engagement rings are sparkling which means when this summer rolls around wedding invitations will arrive. Every time I go to a wedding I think about one I was at a while back. I hadn’t known the bride very long so I was surprised, but happy, to be invited.

NEW YORK - Clothing trends for fall 2015 weren't the only thing that had style enthusiasts buzzing around the tents at New York Fashion Week this season. Models' hair, makeup and nail looks offered plenty more to gush about - and to try to re-create at home.
PARIS - Bomber jackets, knife-pleated skirts, skirts-over-pants, bushy furs (real or faux), tuxedo jumpsuits and modern takes on the corset were some of the clothing trends at Paris Fashion Week. But what about accessories?
PITTSBURGH - Romina Vairo describes life as "a big whirlwind" since learning that she was one of a dozen students and recent grads from Art Institute schools across the country who were selected to show some of their looks last month at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York City. And things haven't stopped whirling in the weeks since.

CHICAGO - Ladies wore princess-style ball gowns or short dresses. Young men donned tuxedos with cummerbunds matching the rainbow of colors shown on a red carpet, as 30 high school couples from Chicago's north suburbs strutted on the runway as they and local officials supported a mission of drug and alcohol awareness.
It’s Academy Awards time! Send in the gowns. While the women on the red carpet who have been buffed and polished, moussed and manicured, gelled and jeweled strike photo pose after pose and answer the same questions again and again, we can curl up and watch. Let them wear their Spanx, corset bodices and five-inch heels. I’ll be in my favorite old robe and fleecy socks.
Who is your oldest friend? No, not the person you’ve been friends with the longest, the one who has lived the most years. Who is your youngest friend? If both of those friends are close to your age, you have some work to do. I believe strongly in having friends who are decades younger and also decades older.
