Ghost Town feels very much like a cinematic stew. Antisocial and repellant dentist Bertram Pincus (Ricky Gervais) has a traumatizing near-death experience and can see dead people (The Frighteners). The ghosts can’t move on due to unfinished business (Casper and many others) so they need his help (The Sixth Sense). Last Updated ( Sunday, 05 October 2008 )

When it comes to Fashion Week, location is everything. Well okay, maybe not everything. The clothes are important too, as are the models and the ritzy after-parties and the high-profile guests. But a show's venue can have a huge effect on how a collection is received. The right music, set and lighting can enhance a designer's work, calling attention to every detail from the length of the zipper to the width of the hemline to the right blend of chemicals that produced the perfect shade of tangerine.

Comparisons began to be drawn between the two first ladies from the moment the British press went Carla crazy when she accompanied Sarkozy on a state visit. Bruni stepped off the plane appropriately dressed for a chilly March day in London. Indeed it was her choice of outfit that led to her being likened to Jackie Kennedy - a sobre three-quarter length charcoal belted wool coat worn with black ballet pumps, and accessorised with a typically 1960s pill box hat, black leather gloves and the kind of vintage handbag usually favoured by the Queen.Last Updated ( Monday, 31 August 2009 )

A friend from Paris was eager to meet David Bouley. I wanted a farewell meal at Bouley in the old Bouley Bakery space at 120 West Broadway before it moves across Duane to a fussy new space that David has obsessed over forever. I hadn't eaten his food for a while and everything about the boldly rouge-blush arched room - the stylized welcome, the Bouley signature perfume of apples in the vestibule, the exquisite roses - seemed poised for the Michelin Man's return. It definitely had that three star feel. Last Updated ( Sunday, 21 September 2008 )

Our longings, dreams and ideals may not meet your standards; you may laugh at us or get upset when you find we are crowding your space or sitting in your favorite spot in a park or restaurant, but do forgive us, svp. Many of us don’t know it is considered impolite to be eating as we walk down the Paris streets. We just don’t stop to think and we do change our pace when on vacation in the City of Light.

A few years back there was an article in a local newspaper about a California- Francophile, Myra Hoefer. She is an interior decorator who does business both in the Marais in Paris, and in the Wine Country, Healdsburg, CA. Her shop in Healdsburg is called 21st Arrondisement, which pulls together all the 20 neighborhoods of Paris… in her mind. It is my understanding that the inventory for her shop comes from all those various neighborhoods. What an ingenious name, I though! Last Updated ( Sunday, 14 September 2008 )
