Depending on your knowledge of the material and expectations going in, the touring version of "The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess," which opened Wednesday at the Ahmanson Theatre, might be either an ingenious, audience-friendly re-creation or a bastardization of this classic American show. Both perspectives can reside within the same spectator, as they do within me, one alternately gaining the upper hand over the other. Undeniable, however, is the majesty of the score, which begins after the Overture with "Summertime" and keeps soaring with "My Man's Gone Now," "Bess, You Is My Woman Now" and "I Loves You, Porgy.

Plenty of publications, including In Style and People, reference the fashion on "Gossip Girl" in an attempt to satisfy the style-hungry who pine for a floral gown worn by Blair or the glittery black eyeliner greased around Jenny's eyes. In addition, there are a number of websites that dedicate their content to tracking what the cast wears, citing the specific designer, cost of each item and links to retail sites. Among them: ? Perhaps the most comprehensive website on all things worn by the Gossip Girls.

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. - The first thing you see on the drive to Cliven Bundy's ranch are the American flags - tied to roadside guardrails, flapping in a hard desert wind. At a bend in state Route 170 sits the so-called Patriot Checkpoint, evidence of the tense power play raging between the rebellious 67-year-old cattleman and the federal government. Then there are the guns. Scores of grim citizen militiamen in combat fatigues - semiautomatic weapons slung over their shoulders, ammunition magazines at their belts - patrol from a base they call Camp Tripwire.

You gotta love watching the Olympics - for the sports, of course, but also for the style. Uniforms are designed primarily for function, and ostensibly they level the playing field. Photo Gallery: Best 2012 Olympic style moments But they actually ratchet up the competition sartorially, as teams try to intimidate and outdo one another using only the skimpy canvas of a swimsuit, a leotard or a pair of shorts, and having to dress within the confines of official Olympic brand sponsors.

During her royal tour of New Zealand this month, Catherine, duchess of Cambridge, stepped out in a sharply tailored, custom Alexander McQueen coat and a perfect ponytail. Smoothly volumized, with a wide lock of hair wrapped around the band, Middleton's pony looked relaxed yet royally polished. Kate's 'do garnered raves on fashion and style blogs, showing she's not alone in appreciating the dependable hairstyle that works day and night, rain or shine. More than a fast solution on bad hair days, it's an instant styling trick - the ponytail's effortless, devil-may-care attitude balances the formality of structured suiting, dazzling jewelry and elegant dresses.

The scene was part Bolshoi Ballet, part Marx Brothers. Four UCLA running backs lined up yards apart, forming a square. On a signal, they burst forward, dodging each other at the last second. Then another group stepped up and repeated the bit. What looked like an elaborate game of chicken was actually part of a Running Back 101 course led by first-year assistant coach Kennedy Polamalu. "We're trying to get the mental part down," Polamalu said. "… We're on them pretty good.

Toyota launched a dramatic mid-cycle restyling of its Camry sedan in a move to fend off increasing competition from rivals such as the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima. The Camry has been the nation's best-selling passenger car for a dozen years but its lead over competitors is narrowing. Through the first three months of this year, Toyota has sold just over 94,000 Camrys. It leads the Altima by about 5,000 sales and the Accord by about 15,000 sales. But the Accord's share of the market is growing and, when sales to rental car companies and other fleet customers are subtracted, actually beat the Camry last year, said Karl Brauer, an analyst with auto information company Kelley Blue Book.

The world of Christian pop music gets the "Best in Show" and "A Mighty Wind" treatment in the clever, consistently amusing mockumentary "Jesus People. " The film, an offshoot of a Web series made popular on, brings together a deft comedic cast (including six of the series' original actors) who enjoyably sell this tale of the speedy rise and fall of a hapless Christian band named Cross My Heart. Formed under the aegis of the earnest, supposedly dying - and conspicuously bewigged - Pastor Jerry (Joel McCrary)

Anne Hathaway has yet to make good on her oft-professed desire to perform in a Broadway musical. Her Oscar-winning turn as Fantine in the 2012 movie version of "Les Miserables" showed that she has the singing chops. And if we need more proof, the actress appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday to remind us that she can belt it out as good as Broadway's best. Hathaway, sporting close-cropped hair and a black pant-suit number, was accompanied on the piano by host Jimmy Fallon in a series of rap and hip-hop songs performed in a humorously over-the-top Broadway style.
