We've seen supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio posing in bejeweled bikinis and gigantic feather wings. Now she's crossing over to the other side of the camera, creating a line of beachy, bohemian clothing called ále by Alessandra. The longtime Victoria's Secret Angel draws on her Brazilian heritage and Southern California lifestyle for the collection, which is scheduled to debut at Planet Blue stores and www.shopplanetblue.com on March 15. "It reflects my everyday life," Ambrosio says of the collection, whose pieces sell for $60 to $260.

On Thursday, the NBA sent out a memo to the Lakers, urging players to adhere to the league's dress code, especially when they arrive at arenas on game days. The mandatory dress code, implemented in 2005, requires players to wear at least a jacket while shunning jeans, hats, T-shirts and the like. One player who stuck with the dress code Thursday night before the Lakers hosted the Clippers was Nick Young, in typically stylish manner. Young, who goes by the nickname "Swaggy P," wore a bright blue suit to Staples Center with sparkling white shoes and no socks.

The hectic pace of the Oscar night coverage here at All The Rage central meant we never got a chance to check out this year's winning Red Carpet Green Dress looks, which were revealed to the world Sunday afternoon as Olga Kurylenko and Kellan Lutz hit the Academy Awards red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The details of the outfits' eco-friendiness, provided by the challenge's organizers, are fascinating. Among them: Kurylenko's gown is 100% GOTS certified organic peace silk and 100% GOTS certified organic silk, hand-dyed with Sappanwood (considered sustainable because of its fast growth rate)

On the whole, the Oscars' red carpet was one elegant look after another , with some singular statements, as Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore notes. Among some we're still thinking about Monday morning are Lupita Nyongo's Nairobi blue accordian-pleat gown and Cate Blanchett's pale gold Armani Prive -- both were winning looks for Academy Award-winning actresses. PHOTOS: Best and worst dressed on the red carpet A couple of others we are thinking about that didn't get as much attention on Oscar Sunday represent two ends of a spectrum: Liza Minnelli in a vintage Halston pantsuit and Emma Watson in a spanking-new rib-knit godet skirt from Vera Wang's fall-winter 2014 collection.

(Disclaimer: Written while fully appreciating every second of this insane and transient journey) OK, so, throughout our entire "Frozen" press tour that began some four months ago, the question I've been asked most is: What is the hardest part about being a female director? During production, I might have picked the infamous notes sessions that occurred every 12 weeks in our story room, where about 40 of my fellow directors, writers and story artists bombarded us with notes and tore our film apart.

It wasn't Windansea Beach itself but a detour taken while trying to find a parking spot there that led to the mother lode of inspiration for Jonathan Cohen's spring collection. The 28-year-old designer, who grew up near the fabled beach in La Jolla and is now based in New York, had recently reread "The Pump House Gang," Tom Wolfe's 1968 story about rowdy teens who hung out at the pump house at Windansea, defending their sandy turf from the over-25 set. When he was home last March, Cohen was determined to see the place with fresh eyes.
