America's recovery from the
financial crisis has been disappointing.
In fact, I've
been arguing that the era
since 2007 is best viewed as a
'depression,' an extended period

Wes Anderson tells
a tale of childhood
WES Anderson wants
you to live in his world
– at least while you´re
watching his movies.
So far in his two-decade career as a
filmmaker, he has offered a wide
variety of stories exploring a wide
range of topics: a heist in Bottle

The Mona Lisa of fashion |
|TO appreciate the designs of
Rei Kawakubo, the woman
behind the label Comme des
Garcons, it helps to be a specialist
in fashion, or something
of a kook.
Let´s consider her latest collection,
shown in March in Paris. Not only were
the brightly coloured felt garments of a
fun-house scale, but they were also completely
flat. A dress had a front and a back,
and the two pieces were joined at the
sides. The simplicity was such that a
clever child, using a cookie cutter, tracing

appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on
Wednesday, host Jimmy Kimmel, 44,
asked the pregnant reality star why there
aren´t any wedding bells in her and Scott´s
"Do you wanna be in my therapy session?"
Kourtney laughed. "First of all, I
have realised that I have major commitment
problems during this pregnancy. I´m
really claustrophobic, and all my issues —
and I have a lot of them — they all stem
from this thing. I can´t commit to anything

Kourtney added "We are committed to

|Models wait for their
Bollywood breaks |
|IT is Bollywood calling for
models. The size of a role
and the budget of a movie
do not matter; they are just
looking for breaks in tinseltown,
which is already ruled by a host
"Since Bollywood has changed completely
with more characteristic roles coming in,
small or big hardly matters. We are here to
perform; so if a small role has the potential of
leaving an impact on moviegoers, then why
not?" model Alesia Raut said.
True to her words, she accepted whatever
came her way - featuring in music videos Meri
beri ke ber and Ek aankh maro and doing a
cameo in Madhur Bhandarkar´s Fashion.
"We can´t do modelling for ever as it has a
short life. So exploring new avenues is always
a good option ...|
