In her eight decades in show business, June Foray has performed countless voices for film, TV, radio and toys. She's performed such iconic cartoon characters as Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Jokey Smurf and the cackling Witch Hazel for both Disney and Warner Bros., so it's not surprising that the 95-year-old voice actress will be honored with a Governors Award by the Television Academy Arts and Sciences at the Creative Arts Emmys this year. But what is surprising is that Foray won her very first Daytime Emmy just last year for voicing yet another witch on "The Garfield Show," making her not only a legend, but still a very active performer.

Two developers are hoping that bargain-hunters will soon be singing "I Bought It on the Grapevine."

This fall, structured jackets are kicking Michelle Obama's cardigans to the curb. After several seasons of sweet and ladylike, fashion has found its edge. The jacket -- be it long, loose and boyfriend-style by Stella McCartney, shrunken into a schoolboy silhouette at J.Crew, sequin-dusted at Zara, cropped and rendered in crisp white from 3.1 Phillip Lim or studded and shoulder-padded at Balmain -- is the key to fall's strong mood. And for good reason. No other piece of clothing, except perhaps a pair of heels, is as transformative.
