It's the day after the Oscars and you'd think I'd be talking about ruffles, drapes, pleats, and flounces on gowns—not to mention the miracle that kept all high-heeled stars from tripping on their swaths of material and tumbling down the stairs. BUT the ruffles I want to point out are on the mirrors in the Women's Room at Grand Central Station. I'm confused about why the mirrors are so decoratively scalloped when the rest of the fixtures are stainless steel functional (OK, so the soap dispensers aren't really functional; they drip and leak, hence the goldenrod towels under each dispenser).

For the record, one of my fave dresses was the Donna Karan gown worn by Penelope Cruz despite the fact that in some photos, the dress seemed to exist in a world outside of its fabulous wearer.

So much nicer than the bathrooms at Penn Station!
