It's just three weeks until the 2020 Academy Awards, arguably Hollywood's biggest celebration of the year. But lots of Hollywood's A-listers turned out Sunday night to walk the red carpet, schmooze and reward one another trophies for acting in films and TV at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, generally regarded as one of the big precursors to ...Read more
We have now, apparently, entered the Green Velvet Pantsuit stage of awards season - and I could not be happier about it. (The world, in general, needs more green velvet.) From the Critics Choice Awards Jan. 12 we have Greta Gerwig, writer/director of "Little Women" (and do NOT get me started on how she should have been nominated for ...Read more
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: A friend of mine was ranting about "millennial hippies." I was too embarrassed to ask her what age ARE millennials anyhow.

Perched on Florida's southern tip, Miami draws visitors from around the world with its blend of urban buzz and glamorous beach scene. However, visiting Miami is very different from visiting other popular Florida destinations. Why is that?

Lots of post-holiday hair questions ...
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I'm 52 and I have been going gray for years. The gray used to be only at the temples and now it's everywhere. My hair looks like a tiger's tail. What should I do? If I color it darker, I'll have to keep it up and there's that pesky grow-out line. I had thought about having the ...Read more
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: Even though it's a new year, I'm still not over the letdown of the holidays. This time of year is always a bummer for me, but it is getting worse. All that preparation, decorating, shopping, wrapping, cooking, entertaining and then - poof - it is over in what seems like just a couple of hours. Here's my question: Is ...Read more
SUNRISE, Fla. - It was hard to reconcile, all this sunshine Oprah Winfrey cast upon the masses at the BB&T Center on Saturday morning.
Outside, the air was thick with machismo, vengeance and the prospect of war, still simmering after a speech delivered in a Miami megachurch 24 hours earlier by President Trump. But in another corner of South...Read more

Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I can't see without my glasses, so there's no question that I must wear them even for the dressiest occasions. (Contact lenses don't work for me.) But should I buy a special pair for fancy events? If so, what should they look like? My everyday glasses are round and tortoiseshell. They seem kind of casual for a formal ...Read more

Approximately 325 miles southeast of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Cat Island feels away from it all. This remote part of the Bahamas isn't one you can reach easily via cruise ship or Airbus. In fact, getting here might require a prop plane. Although daily nonstop flights on larger airlines arrive in New Bight Airport (TBI) from Nassau and Fort ...Read more
I got my last relaxer when I was 25.
The reasons were many: The every six-to-eight-week ritual cost way too much money. I decided to start running 5Ks and permed hair would not stay straight if I ran in humidity every day. And the creamy chemicals didn't just make my own hair brittle, my scalp often burned to the flesh. Intuitively I knew ...Read more
I'm not currently a watcher of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," (it requires, alas, an Amazon Prime Video subscription, of which I'm not currently in possession), but I do keep hearing about how much fun it is - and, particularly, about the delightful 1950s/'60s costumes created by Emmy Award-winning costume designer Donna Zakowska. Here's...Read more
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: Crazy question. I have long hair. When I went to vacuum today, the vacuum cleaner didn't seem to work correctly. I stopped, turned it upside down and found a lot of hair wrapped around the brush. When I untangled my long hair from the brush, the vacuum worked again. If I wore an old-fashioned hairnet in the house, do ...Read more
