    Earlier Sunday night: Actors Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber arrive mermaid wedding dresses on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards, looking every bit like they’re ready for a James Bond walk-on.

     (Jason Merritt/Getty Images)Every day there is a new rumour. In January, the British press said the designer would be Bruce Oldfield, a favourite of Princess Diana’s who made Queen Rania of Jordan’s wedding dress. In late February, fashion writers declared Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s longtime assistant, was the one. Then The Daily Mail newspaper reported Ms. Middleton had sketched a design herself, taking inspiration from the Renaissance period. This dress is made of ivory satin and lace, with a pearl-button detail and a three-metre train -and will be auctioned off for charity after the big day. Royal officials insist no one other than Ms. Middleton’s bridal party and her designer will know until she steps out of the Rolls Royce in front of Westminster Abbey on her wedding morning.Caroline Lowsley-Williams of Chavenage House, an Elizabethan manor in the central Cotswolds district, laments hiring out her estate for weddding. “I wouldn’t wish the wedding trade on anyone,” she says. “We peaked one year at 37. It helped the cash flow, but that meant 37 mothers-of-the-bride to deal with. I’m keener on funerals. They have a shorter run-in time.”Shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday, two armed men entered a mansion where a family, whom Mrs. ball gown wedding dresses Collia describes as “so peaceful,” has lived for a year and a half. At home were a woman, 71, and her two grandsons, 27 and 16.Before Winnipeg’s uglification began in the ’60s (like so many other North American cities), we used to walk everywhere, even in February, in -40 C weather. My mother’s favorite route was, of course, down Portage Avenue beginning at Birks (a beautiful building, now badly neglected) with a stop at Eaton’s, now gone, and than a quick march to the Bay. She had a habit of giving me a little punch on the back if I didn’t say hello quickly enough to her friends strolling on the avenue, always filled with shoppers throughout the day and especially on weekends. My mother usually wore a hat with a veil and a seal coat.

     Yes, that march from Eaton’s to the Bay was often bitterly cold, but the women were always stylish.When he takes a microphone at the Throckmorton, Sahl is a grinning satirist, rather than a man who has bitterly lost all hope in American liberty. When he mentions the word “fascist,” the crowd laughs, thinking it’s a hyperbolic quip.Allan Waters Humanitarian Award winners Simple Plan were honoured for their support of youth before taking the stage to perform, backed by beautiful video imagery. K’naan joined the band for a wedding party dresses very fitting rap verse as nine tropical dancers swung to the music. Simple Plan’s drummer chucked a stick into the crowd, who didn’t even notice as it most likely smacked some poor chap in the head.One can imagine a surrogate mother changing her mind once she is holding the glistening baby that emerged from her womb and refusing to give it up.

     One can imagine overbearing intended parents trying to micromanage a surrogate’s life while she is pregnant.One Direction and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won two awards and Rihanna was given the AMA’s first Icon Award to go with her win as favourite soul/R&B female artist.When I spoke with Downton-loving designer Anna Sui last fall, we digressed into a conversation about why that period, along with Sui’s beloved 1930s, continues to have such appeal.

     “It seemed like a last hurrah,” she said of the high-society screwball comedies and backstage musicals that were a disconnect from the realities of the Depression.Kay’s father, Henry Otey, a barber whose all-white clientele included some of the local white supremacists, referred his clients to his daughter.The younger-skewing appeal of “Empire,” the enthusiasm of up-and-coming brands like Hood by Air and the acceleration of fashion and retailing in general have combined to make the series a retailing whiz kid.
