In retrospect, it seems, Patronella Luke's was a death foretold. All week, the children of Mt. Olive Church of God in Christ had been studying the Bible in a small chapel next to the main sanctuary on a corner in Southeast Los Angeles. Friday night, during commencement ceremonies, the pastor, the Rev. J. C. Brewster, taught a chilling, although apparently unintentional, lesson about prophecy.

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, the three-day, two-weekend music fest that takes place in Indio, is still a little more than a week away, but the fashion festivities have already started in Los Angeles. Haute Betts , an L.A.-based jewelry brand designed by Heather Betts, kicked off the Coachella season with a pre-'Chella soiree at the Petite L'Ermitage in West Hollywood on Tuesday evening. L.A. stylist and blogger Sydne Summer, TV personality Diana Madison, celebrity stylist and designer Joey Tierney and more stepped out to fete the line's new spring/summer 2013 collections.  The pieces looked like they were made for the free-spirited style that has dominated past Coachella festivals -- flowing maxis, booties, flowers in your hair and as many accessories as you can handle.
