First came Nicolas Ghesquière's critically acclaimed runway debut for Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week. Now it's on to Phase 2 of the luxury marketing machine: rolling out the collection on the red carpet, where it is seen by the world. In the weeks since the March 5 runway show, only a few stars have had a chance to wear the clothes, suggesting that Vuitton's strategy is to be more selective about whom it dresses. Rather than blanketing half of Hollywood, which is what Dior has done so effectively, Ghesquière and Vuitton seem to be going for friends and fashion independents, women who go their own way when it comes to what they wear, as much as you can say that about anyone who is dressing head to toe in a single designer.

Whatever demons were chasing "The Catcher in the Rye's" Holden Caulfield all over Manhattan, one feels certain that if he could only have caught a warm, sympathetic gaze from Jennifer Connelly, they would have all melted away quicker than a morning frost.

When it was announced that Marlon Wayans and not Eddie Murphy would be portraying Richard Pryor in the long-discussed biopic of the comedy giant, the news was greeted with Internet jeering. Wayans wasn't surprised when he read the disparaging comments -- you can't hang your star on films like "White Chicks" and "Little Man" without consequences. "Look, I want to be able to make the stupidest movies ever, because they make people laugh and they make money," Wayans recently said with a smirk.

"Blood Diamond" is already affecting how Hollywood shops. 4. Seems Jane Fonda's son is getting engaged, so at the movie's premiere Dec. 6, she asked producer pal Paula Weinstein what to ask a jeweler to make sure the engagement rock -- and her own ear bling -- was certified "conflict free." 5. Djimon Hounsou high-fived Kagiso Kuypers, who plays his son. 6. Jennifer Connelly wore a conflict-free Tiffany ring. 7. But her bling was so understated, hardly anyone noticed. 8.

In John Hughes' "Home Alone," Macaulay Culkin's greatest fantasy was to have the house to himself. In "Career Opportunities," which Hughes wrote and produced, and which Bryan Gordon directed, Frank Whaley plays a 21-year-old who still lives with his parents and brother and sister and doesn't want to be abandoned.

"Of Love and Shadows" is the right story told the wrong way. Based on Isabel Allende's novel, it is an old-fashioned adventure-romance that lays bare the human rights atrocities committed in Chile under the Pinochet military regime. It is yet another of those international co-productions in which the stars speak English in ill-matched accents and the supporting players are dubbed into English, giving the movie an instant and deadly synthetic quality.
