The combination of sandals and socks has long been seen as a major footwear faux pas. And, as recently as last year when British department store Debenhams polled 1,500 customers on what they felt was the most egregious of all fashion offenses, sandals with socks ranked No. 1 - beating out platform shoes for men and scrunchies. But proving that fashion is often wildly unpredictable, wearing sandals with socks is no longer a fashion misstep. This season, it's suddenly a trend embraced by celebrities and fashion industry insiders who are pairing their Birkenstocks, clogs and even open-toed high-heel sandals with ankle-length socks.

This summer, actor David Suchet will complete a task 25 years in the making when the final adaptations of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot mysteries are aired. However, if fans want to see Poirot's final three adventures, they'll need a good broadband Internet connection. The English actor Suchet has been playing Christie's Belgian detective creation in a series of adaptations of all 70 of her Poirot stories since 1989. This summer, the 13th series of adaptations, made up of five TV movies, will debut in America, but not all episodes will air on PBS' "Masterpiece Mystery," which has been the show's stateside home for most of its run. The first two films, "The Big Four" and "Dead Man's Folly," will air on PBS on July 27 and Aug. 3, respectively.

Along with blues, shades of pale blush, rose, dove gray and nude were also popular on the Emmy red carpet Sunday, for better or worse. "Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore an all-over embroidered rose gold Monique Lhuillier column gown that shined like a pearl. "Homeland" actress Claire Danes chose an ethereal nude tulle Armani Privé gown with a tulle bodice embroidered with sequins, and a full crinoline lace skirt accented with a woven horizontal ribbon motif. Ever the risk taker, January Jones chose a nude lace Givenchy confection that unfortunately resembled a Band-Aid, especially since the fit was too tight across the bodice.

INDIO -- Self-described “model-sociallite” Silka (no last name given) drifted across the densely populated Coachella VIP section during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' evening set attired in a crocheted shawl, a $400 Malia Mills bikini and a pair of Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges. She was sipping discreetly at a vodka cranberry in a plastic tumbler and turning heads with every step. The New York-based native of Hungary explained she had spent the better part of two days earlier this week sifting through her wardrobe to find precisely the right ensembles for three days' worth of festival revelry beneath Indio's baking sun. “Of course I love the music but of course I want to look good,” Silka said as a male companion smiled in nodding agreement.
