When Los Angeles-born Joan Juliet Buck arrived here in June to take over French Vogue, there was bound to be some French resistance. The worst of it came from, of all places, her hair salon. Being the editor in chief of France's most prestigious fashion publication means maintaining a certain discipline in one's everyday life, Buck ruefully acknowledges: "It's all hair and makeup and high heels. And no more Minnie Mouse shoes." Minnie Mouse shoes?

Richard Avedon was one of the most accomplished photographers of the last 50 years and a new solo exhibition of his work at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, "Avedon: Women," explores his interpretations of beauty, both conventional and unconventional.  There are more than 100 images in the show, ranging from a portrait of artist June Leaf (1975), which is beautiful in its unvarnished earthiness, to highly stylized fashion photos of models Penelope Tree, Suzy Parker, China Machado and Twiggy.  "What you start to see when you look at all these photos is that it wasn't about traditional notions of beauty," says Kara Vander Weg, one of the directors at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, and liaison to the Avedon Foundation, who showed me around the exhibition.

The hot book and the haute restaurant have a similar appeal: They both dish up something you can't get at home and probably would be healthier without, whether it's intrafamily sex or a cream-choked hazelnut dacouoise. Best sellers sling social taboos with the abandon of a mad chef, offering a fairly standard, rich menu, to which readers respond with the same guilty glee ("I shouldn't have this, but . . . ") they exhibit when ordering a gooey dessert.

NEW YORK -- As Americans reacted with jaw-dropping disbelief this week to news of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's sexcapades, the Internet was swamped with commentary. And one new website, hoping to carve out a distinctive niche, bannered a provocative question to its readers: Should Silda Wall Spitzer stand by her man? "It's painful to see these women, time and time again be dragged out to these press conferences," answered actress Marlo Thomas.

Two Views of Jennifer Bartlett From "Getting Everything In," by Calvin Tomkins, The New Yorker, April 15, 1985: Jennifer Bartlett's New York friends are often surprised to learn that she grew up in Southern California. How could that laid-back, sybaritic culture (as we tend to view it from the East Coast) have produced an artist of her energy, analytic rigor and undissembled ambition? Bartlett herself says that California always seemed strange to her.

"Cheat and Charmer" by Elizabeth Frank is a novel set in Hollywood, the blacklist its backbone. It's high time for a fiction examining the chasm that the House Un-American Activities Committee cleaved through Hollywood, between those who talked and those who refused, those who went into political and professional exile and those who stayed, continuing to work in a place dominated by betrayal. One hopes for a work as passionate as Brooke Hayward's knowing memoir, "Haywire."

Any doubt that there would be life for the Alexander McQueen brand after the death of its founder should have vanished over the last two weeks. The hoopla surrounding the opening of the "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the revelation that his successor — Sarah Burton — designed Catherine Middleton's wedding gown, were a one-two punch for a brand that could easily have stumbled after McQueen's...
