Zooey Deschanel and the Great Black Tights Debate: Why Is She So Obsessed?
We feel like a broken record on this issue, but why in the world does Zooey Deschanel insist upon wearing the same stockings with every single dress?! At first we thought the Fox star's style was on account of the seasons. See exhibit A below: thick hosiery helping keep her warm at a chilly, New York event.  Then came spring, and with it Exhibit B below. There are those same black tights under a short cocktail dress! And now we're half way through summer, and the 500 Days of Summer star shows up in the look that prompted this most recent out-cry! Black tights, this time under a long vintage frock. Something is not right... We've seen Zooey's legs enough times to know...

Roland Petit obituary

Choreographer and dancer who created stunning roles for his wife, Zizi Jeanmaire

When Roland Petit's Les Ballets des Champs Elysées opened its first London season in 1946, the company brought to the British dance scene an explosion of chic and excitement which had long been missing. Not only was the standard of male dancing from Petit and his fellow dancer Jean Babilée better than anything for many years, the enthusiasm of the young company was a contrast to the restrained correctness of the Sadler's Wells dancers. Les Forains, a piece about a troupe of strolling entertainers, distinguished by beautiful decors and costumes by Christian Bérard, was the triumph of what the critic Richard Buckle described as "an evening of wonderful surprises".

Petit, who has died from leukaemia aged 87, was capable of tailoring a role so that it perfectly reflected the abilities of the dancer on whom it was made, often

The director wore hers late last year at a New York Times lecture promoting her movie Somewhere with Stephen Dorff. Black tights and wedge ankle booties completed her look. Meanwhile, the "Rude Boy" singer looked decidedly less chilly last month when she wore the dress to dinner in Santa Monica., Calif., with bare legs, white loafers and a Prada tote.

Cyd Charisse dies at 86

Cyd Charisse dies at 86
Cyd Charisse, the long-legged Texas beauty who danced with the Ballet Russe as a teenager and starred in MGM musicals with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, died Tuesday. She was 86.

Charisse was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday after suffering an apparent heart attack, said her publicist, Gene Schwam.

It was her uncredited turn opposite Astaire in "Ziegfeld Follies" in 1946 that won her a seven-year contract with MGM. Her moves with Astaire in Vincent Minnelli's "Band Wagon" were often described as "heavenly."

One of the greatest female dancers in the heyday of the Hollywood musical, she starred in such big-screen extravaganzas as "Brigadoon" (1954) and as a young Vicki Carr in "The Silencers" (1966). While she strutted her considerable stuff on the screen, her singing was invariably dubbed.

Though she didn't often spend much time on the screen, her scenes made dramatic impact. Outfitted in the most splendid costumes, she wowed
