PARIS - We saw a giant spinning globe at Chanel, heard live music by Antony and the Johnsons at Givenchy and snapped front-row pics everywhere of celebrities, including Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, Frank Ocean, Zoe Saldana, January Jones, Kourtney Kardashian, Kanye West and Cher. Paris Fashion Week, which ended last Wednesday, was entertaining, whether designers presenting their ready-to-wear collections for fall-winter 2013 were dazzling with smoke effects or with an all-out assault of museum-worthy workmanship to remind us of what their ateliers can do, even if, in the end, nobody really dresses like that.

The inspiration: Gypsy-meets-Victoriana, according to the show notes.

One of the great joys of being a fashion critic is the ability to observe how designers all over the world riff on and reinterpret the L.A. look. Watching the spring runway collections, whether I was sitting at a runway show in the crumbling Beekman Palace in New York City or at a 13th century convent in Paris, I was dreaming of California. It wasn't just homesickness, though after weeks on the road, that could have been part of it. I was thinking about how the clothes would play here, how they might have been influenced by the vision of casual luxe that California has exported to the world, and how they might have been inspired by the landscape, art, architecture and attitude of this incredible place.

Film director David O. Russell has said his work on the film was inspired by his experiences with his own son Matthew, who is a student at the school and who was also a guest at the party.

Despite a fresh round of objections from neighborhood groups, airport commissioners Tuesday endorsed a controversial plan to push Los Angeles International Airport's northern runway closer to nearby homes for safety and efficiency reasons. The action is part of a larger modernization effort designed to keep one of the nation's busiest aviation centers - and an economic engine for the region - competitive in an era of larger jetliners and airport upgrades in major cities, such as San Francisco.

Do not adjust your monitors; those are indeed six Lamborghini Aventador Roadsters cutting in front of a Boeing 777 on a runway at Miami International Airport. Don't worry, it was sanctioned. The event was organized to mark the world media debut of the 700-horsepower Roadster, the drop-top version of the Aventador supercar. This new version shares the drivetrain from the fixed-roof version -- a 6.5-liter V-12 engine routs power to all four wheels through a seven-speed automated manual transmission.

When actresses step onto the Screen Actors Guild red carpet this Sunday, the world will be poring over every flounce, every sequin, every slit, strap, pump and peplum. "Who are you wearing?" has become the ubiquitous question on interviewers' lips. The answers may be surprising. Every year brings a crop of relatively unknown designers yearning for the big breakthrough a red carpet triumph can bring with it. They've seen it happen before. When Halle Berry accepted her groundbreaking lead actress Oscar in 2002 in a maroon gown with a daring sheer leaf-strewn beaded top, it was also a career-making victory for her till-then unknown designer, Elie Saab.

SAN DIEGO - A recruit who made a perilous dash across the runway at San Diego's Lindbergh Field in an apparent attempt to flee Marine boot camp is no longer in the Marine Corps, authorities said Thursday. Benjamin Yi, 22, of Colorado Springs, Colo., has been separated from recruit training and the Marine Corps, officials said. Last week, Yi was detained by airport police after being spotted dashing across the runway from the adjacent boot camp. Yi's pants were torn off when he climbed two fences, including one topped with razor wire.
