Twenty-eight years after her death, and more than 50 years after first wowing audiences on the big screen, Grace Kelly, the statuesque blonde with the impossibly small waist and flawless face, continues to inspire designers and admirers alike. Few celebrities will ever live the sort of life enjoyed by Kelly, who was born in Philadelphia, started her career in the '40s as a New York model, came to Hollywood prominence in the '50s and later became Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco.

Today's Google Doodle is particularly fashion-focused, celebrating what would have been the 116th birthday of eight-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Edith Head. The doodle depicts the instantly recognizable caricature of Head -- with her distinctive haircut and eyeglasses -- standing in front of six costume-design sketches rendered in Google's traditional color scheme. Some 438 costume designs are credited to Head on Imdb.com. Over the course of her career, the costume designer took home Oscar gold (some singlehandedly; on other films, she shared the honor)

A dolt. A rube. A nimrod. A nitwit. A dimwit. A doofus. A numskull. A moron. An imbecile. An idiot. A dummy. A witless wonder. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Not the brightest crayon in the pack. One taco short of a Mexican platter. A couple of cards short of a full deck. These are the types one may encounter if one chooses online matches by their photos without paying too much attention to their self-penned profiles. I plead guilty. But I think I have learned my lesson.

After memorably bringing to life a rogue's gallery of knaves, villains, scamps and ne'er-do-wells in films such as 1982's "Made in Britain," Quentin Tarantino's 1994 "Pulp Fiction," 1995's "Rob Roy," for which he earned an Oscar nomination, and 2008's "The Incredible Hulk," it's bit of a shock to discover Tim Roth is just a softie. On a recent hot summer's day, Roth, 52, is enjoying a glass of water at an outside table at his favorite British pub in Pasadena, where he lives out of the glare of Hollywood with his wife and two teenage sons.

Prince Rainier III of Monaco, who made Hollywood beauty Grace Kelly his fairy-tale princess and transformed his tiny Riviera realm of casinos and resorts into a powerhouse of international banking and business during a 56-year reign, died Wednesday. He was 81. Rainier died in a Monaco hospital, just a month after he was admitted with a lung infection, according to an announcement from the palace. His only son, Prince Albert, 47, was at his bedside when Rainier died.

The ice is breaking up on the L.A. River--time to think vacation. Whatever the travel agents trill, there are only two kinds of vacations. One is the Grace Kelly holiday--serene, flawlessly executed, when the very waves of the ocean prostrate themselves before your ship like Sammy Davis Jr. before Richard Nixon. The other is the Gracie Allen vacation--improvisational, always fluttering at the edge of chaos. Hand the desk clerk your credit card, and he smiles blandly as he rings the silent alarm.

In his song "Grace Kelly," a No. 1 hit last year in Britain, Mika boasts, "I could be anything you like." It's a claim backed up by his kaleidoscopic debut, "Life in Cartoon Motion," on which the 24-year-old Londoner (the son of a Lebanese mother and an American father) mashes together musical styles the way Baz Luhrmann combines dramatic traditions in his movies. Into glam? Broadway? Stadium rock? Mika's got you covered.

Jazz has had its share of prodigies over the years, as well as players -- Miles Davis was one -- who established their creative credentials while they were barely out of their teens. But aside from pianists such as Eldar Djangirov and Taylor Eigsti, few teenage horn players, and even fewer who are female, have drawn much attention in recent years. With the exception, that is, of Grace Kelly, a 15-year-old alto saxophonist and singer from Massachusetts.

Probably since the first caveman consented to his wife's demand that he wipe his feet before entering their dwelling, women have been thought to have mysterious powers. Instinctively, goes one myth, women understand the needs of children. Graced with second sight, goes another, they can tell what a man is feeling before he knows he is feeling anything at all. Over the centuries, a woman's power has somehow also extended to her purse.

Amanda Seyfried is on the August cover of Elle, touting her new movie "Lovelace," set to open Aug. 9. This is the movie in which Seyfried, who is known for roles such as the virtuous Cosette in "Les Miserables,"  plays porn star Linda Lovelace, of "Deep Throat" fame. "I read the script and I was like, 'Wow, this is the riskiest thing that's happening [in Hollywood] right now.' The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, 'This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized,'" she says.

She's 15 years old and she has one of the most fabled names in show business. But this Grace Kelly is neither a movie actress nor a princess -- at least not yet. She is, however, one of the most highly regarded young jazz talents to come down the pike in recent memory, with raves about her startlingly mature alto saxophone playing from such expert witnesses as Lee Konitz, Phil Woods and Jimmy Heath.
