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...

PARIS -- A Mondrian-inspired geometric sandbox and a silken sky were the set for Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton's spring 2014 collection shown Tuesday evening at Paris Fashion Week. The inspiration: Early 20th century artists, including Mondrian and Picasso. Primitive shapes, graphic forms and bold color, according to show notes. The look: A 1920s tribal cabaret. Key pieces: Kilts and dresses with pleats and folds of every kind -- sunray, box, knife pleats and more in perforated leather, black-and-white check, or with red, scroll-like details.

After weeks of speculation that at times verged on the absurd, Catherine Middleton emerged Friday for her wedding in a gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The gown is classic-looking, in silk gazar with long intricate lace sleeves, and it will probably be a force of pop culture for years to come, influencing fashion trends and reinforcing the sociological significance of the white wedding gown. "We knew she would wear something classic, but having Sarah Burton as the designer added something modern," said Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.

A New York-based designer named Alfred Fiandaca appears to be one of Ann Romney's favorites. Both the cream skirt suit she wore to Wednesday's presidential debate and the attention-getting black outfit she wore on Jay Leno's program last week were by Fiandaca, whose staff says she has been buying his clothes off the rack for years. [The Cut] For the debate, Michelle Obama wore the "Lavender" dress and boxy jacket from Preen's fall 2011 collection -- an outfit she's worn before.

Thank-you so much for your article on finding someone in the big city ("When Boy Loses Girl," Dec. 18). I never think to check the ads in the L.A. Weekly, but I wanted to share my little story with you. A few Valentine's evenings ago, I went with my family and some friends to a restaurant. Across the room, a young man and I caught each other's eyes. He came over to the table (a very brave move in front of a group of eight strangers), bearing compliments and smiles. He was visiting from Chicago, but was fully entranced by me and had to introduce himself.

The style stakes are heating up this red carpet season, and at the SAG Awards on Sunday night, it was the risks that paid off. The sea of sameness we saw at the Golden Globes gave way to major individualized fashion statements. Emma Stone's dress -- by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen -- was a total knockout because of its "exploding lace" bustier, as the fashion house describes it; and the fresh, mid-calf length, all the better to showcase a killer pair of peep-toe shoes.

Has Roseanne Arnold lost her mind? "Jackie Thomas" is "more cutting edge than anything David Lynch and Oliver Stone can bring to television"? To compare "Twin Peaks" and "Wild Palms" to "Jackie Thomas" is an insult to both Lynch and Stone. I think Roseanne's bias is showing and she should get a little perspective. I am disgusted by her abuse of power regarding "The Jackie Thomas Show" ("Roseanne & Tom Play Hardball," April 15). While it is true that "Roseanne" is a very popular show and one of the best-written comedies on TV, I don't understand why anybody should have to watch her husband's less-than-wonderful show.
