The end of the women's ready-to-wear runway shows in Paris means the fashion focus will soon be on the City of Angels and its biannual crazy quilt of style-centric activities. Most of the events are set to take place during a 12-day run that gets underway Oct. 10 and ends on Oct. 21, with the last day of L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios. And most are for buyers and media only, but there are a few exceptions. The most notable of these this season is a runway show and fundraiser organized by Fashion Business Inc. to be hosted by Melissa Rivers and comedian Brett Walkow on Oct. 16 at downtown Los Angeles' Union Station.

This post has been corrected. See note at the bottom for details. Look at the roster of events for the fourth edition of L.A. Beer Week and prepare to be overwhelmed. Nearly 30 options crowd Saturday alone. On tap is an exploration of pumpkin beers, multiple beer fests, a beer run, a beer brunch, a beer shuttle and, for the dessert-minded, a sampling of beer-infused ice cream. There's so much happening that L.A Beer Week isn't technically a week. The 11-day event began last night and runs through Sept.

As fans around the world pay tribute to Marilyn Monroe this week on the 50th anniversary of her death, the fascination with the tragic star is never-ending. Countless books continue to be published about her life, including several coffee-table books of photographs this past year by Bert Stern, Lawrence Schiller and Andre de Dienes, who took some of the earliest photos of the aspiring model in 1945. But it was George Barris who earned the distinction of being the last photographer to have an official photo shoot with Monroe before her death in 1962.

Does anyone really know what heaven looks like? For ages, artists have expressed their interpretations on canvas and authors have penned numerous books on their journeys to the hereafter. Recent titles include Mary C. Neal's “To Heaven and Back: A Doctor's Extraordinary Account of Her Death, Heaven, Angels, and Life Again: A True Story” and Todd Burpo's “Heaven Is for Real,” which spent 70 weeks on the L.A. Times bestsellers list. In the story of a 4-year-old boy's visit to heaven during emergency surgery, the artwork of 8-year-old Akiane Kramarik (who also had a near-death experience)

"Sublime Schubert" is what the Los Angeles Philharmonic is calling this week of Schubert and nothing but. The festival began at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Monday night with a performance of the most beloved song cycle, "Die Schöne Müllerin," by possibly history's most beloved composer. And, yes, the scorching performance from baritone Matthias Goerne and pianist Christoph Eschenbach was sublime, but not in the sense of a heavenly destination occasionally reached by way of the ridiculous.

I'm the girl in the blue dress dancing on Frank Sinatra's hat. I'm also on a key chain and a magnet. I'm not in the production of Twyla Tharp's musical "Come Fly Away" that's reaching the Pantages Theatre this week, but I'm proud my image is being used for publicity. There we are, my trusty partner and I, locked in a cameo dance embrace. My knee is wrapped faithfully around his waist. We are staring at each other's noses. I've seen this pose replicated over and over during the credits for "Dancing With the Stars.
