The straps have it. A New Jersey school board has ruled that eighth-grade girls attending a dance next month must wear dresses with straps -- or at least one strap -- ending a debate that raised allegations of sexism, led to a school principal being threatened, and forced the cancellation of another dance. The decision Wednesday night in Readington Township, about 60 miles west of New York City, was not without drama. The township's school board heard more than an hour of testimony from parents and would-be fashion police, and it cast three votes before reaching a decision, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

It was an invasion of the body con dresses at the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. But it was no horror; it was smokin' hot.

Alba accessorized the look with white Casadei pumps. (That's right, they aren't just for summertime anymore.) PHOTOS: The red carpet at the People's Choice Awards "Girls" star Allison Williams chose an electric blue-and-white dress by hot and getting-hotter London designer David Koma , who was recently tapped to design the Thierry Mugler label.

Re "Modesty Squad Dressing Down Secular Israelis," Aug. 9: I guess hating Arabs isn't enough for the ultra-Orthodox in Israel, so now they're attacking their fellow countrymen. Apparently the God they worship cares very much about how one dresses, what foods one eats and whether or not one drives a car on a certain day of the week but doesn't give a damn about hatred and violence against one's fellow man. They call this religious. I call it insane. TAMA WINOGRAD Studio City

At the newest David's Bridal store, wedged in a Los Angeles strip mall with an auto parts merchant and a Subway sandwich shop, customers won't find the chain's usual budget-conscious dresses, fluorescent lighting and wall-to-wall carpeting. Instead, there's glossy tile flooring. Chandeliers. Curated displays of shoes, glittering jewelry and pearl-encrusted clutches. Artfully draped curtains lead into a bright area lined with mirrored dressing rooms and plush chairs, evoking the boutique salons on Robertson Boulevard or Melrose Place.
