* It is with sadness that we pass along the news that photographer Deborah Turbeville,"who almost single-handedly turned fashion photography from a clean, well-lighted thing into something dark, brooding and suffused with sensual strangeness," died earlier this month.

* Yesterday Grace Kelly was born in 1929 and even though she is long gone from this world she still managed to land a magazine cover! If that does not make a girl official Icon status we don't know what would! Tatler ran Grace as their cover girl wearing the ice blue Edith Head dress she made famous. Some girls have such fabulous lives - before and after.
