The line snaked from 6th Street up to the front door of the El Rey Theatre. Inside were tickets to see the biggest band in the world play an Echo Park rock club Saturday night.

Taylor Swift: supermodel? Well, she definitely showed off those gams and singing chops during Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Alas, the country-pop crooner didn't don the brand's sultry signature lingerie for the annual décolletage display Wednesday. Instead, the 23-year-old Grammy-winner rocked out with a bevy of models for the lingerie brand's over-the-top presentation, arriving for the show in a  floral-beaded mini-dress by Zuhair Murad. The singer kicked off her performance in a kitschy, Union Jack-inspired ensemble -- a mini-dress, complete with train, top hat and matching Union Jack gladiator heels -- for the show's British Invasion segment as she played along with the angels while they strutted their stuff and the brand's skimpy show-stopping confections.

John F. Kennedy High School considers itself Newark, N.J.'s "Best Kept Secret" - the staff even answers the phone with that tag line, and deservedly so. But as Samantha Buck's moving documentary makes clear, the secret weapon at the public school for special-needs students is Janet Mino, an inspirational teacher with limitless patience and indefatigable enthusiasm. Mino has taught her classroom of a half-dozen autistic boys in the country's 10th-poorest city for four years.
