9 Iconic Rom-Com Looks (and the Secret Stories Behind Them)

The one thing all romantic comedies have in common? They celebrate the two things everyone wants in life—rom and com, of course. To honor that, we’re devoting a whole week to the genre. More on the rom-coms we love, past and present, here. In a romantic comedy, the fashion helps tell the story just as much as the dialogue—especially if that story involves a transformation. If a character goes from wearing all black to pastels, for example, that might signify a change in mood from dark to light. If she goes from wearing pajamas to power suits (or the other way around), it might suggest an increase in confidence or a decrease in stress levels. Whatever the case, a rom-com character’s choice in clothing is anything but an accident. Here, we ask costume designers to share their behind-the-scenes stories about nine iconic looks in romantic comedies to prove just that. Find out how Jennifer Garner’s 13 Going on 30 “Thriller” dress came to be, surprising details about The Wedding Planner wardrobe, and so much more. One of the most memorable scenes from Jennifer Garner’s Ariana Grande–approved romantic comedy—in which Garner plays Jenna, a sweet 13-year-old girl...

In our latest column, “Ask a Fashionista,” you can solicit our strongly held opinions on everything from how to wear a midi skirt without looking like a tree stump to whether a certain retail CEO should go ahead and resign already. Have a question? Email us at ask@fashionista.com. Q: I went to a sample sale this week and found a perfect pair of high-heeled boots from my favorite designer. They were on sale at an amazing discount, but there was one problem: they were one size too small. After too many bad experiences buying small shoes in the past, I decided to leave them behind. I know that shoes can sometimes be broken in or stretched out, but some do it much more than others. How can I know for sure that I will be able to make them fit better?— Erin, New York, NY There are few things more heartbreaking — in the realm of shopping, that is — than finding a pair of designer shoes you love at a crazy discount, only to realize it’s not available in your size. It’s not like you can buy them anyway and think the ol’, “Oh, I’ll just lose 10 pounds and fit into it” thing. There is nothing you can do to change your shoe size — or at least,...

We recently caught up with Richmond Fire Chief Adrian Sheppard to talk about his department and some of the new life-saving innovations coming to RFD. RS: What are some of the goals and objectives that you are hoping to accomplish for the Fire Department in the next fiscal year? ADRIAN SHEPPARD: As the Fire Department, we certainly want to be aligned with the City’s goals and objectives. Some of our goals include creating emergency support functions here in the City. Our emergency support functions are basically publications that we have that help us in times of emergency if there is an event that takes place here in Richmond or the surrounding areas. So we would better able to mitigate the emergency.  We would have a playbook on how things are going to go. So we have been working diligently in keeping with the City Council’s objectives to create emergency support functions. We suspect that will be completed 2019-2020. There are 17 in total. ADRIAN SHEPPARD: We have 96 people, but nothing gets done individually. We rely on the police department, their dispatch center and other departments like public works.  Say if there were a flood or some other significant event where trees a...

The demanding aircraft industry constantly challenges aerospace manufacturers to look for ways to improve processes, reduce

The demanding aircraft industry constantly challenges aerospace manufacturers to look for ways to improve processes, reduce downtime and ultimately increase productivity. Inherent in engine component designs is a high degree of quality and tight tolerances. The work materials – heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs) – have poor machinability, adding to the difficulty in machining these parts. As a cutting tool manufacturer, NTK develops innovative high-quality products to ensure there is no effect on the integrity or surface finish of the part while enabling higher productivity. Blisk engine components, where the hub and blades are machined from a solid piece of HRSA material (Inconel 718) are complex machining applications requiring tools that are efficient, reliable, and produce parts that meet stringent manufacturing specifications. Now imagine machining these parts at cutting speeds normally reserved for aluminum. This is a reality with our durable solid ceramic end mill, made of SX9 grade SiAlON, which typically runs at speeds of 2,000sfm to 3,000sfm (with a minimal speed of 1,000sfm). The intricate flute edge design withstands the extreme heat and pressure generated when mach...

BRK phosphorylates SMAD4 for proteasomal degradation and inhibits tumor suppressor FRK to control SNAIL, SLUG, and metastatic potential

↵* Present address: Division of Basic Biomedical Sciences, Sanford School of Medicine, The University of South Dakota, Vermillion, SD 57069, USA. The tumor-suppressing function of SMAD4 is frequently subverted during mammary tumorigenesis, leading to cancer growth, invasion, and metastasis. A long-standing concept is that SMAD4 is not regulated by phosphorylation but ubiquitination. Our search for signaling pathways regulated by breast tumor kinase (BRK), a nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinase that is up-regulated in ~80% of invasive ductal breast tumors, led us to find that BRK competitively binds and phosphorylates SMAD4 and regulates transforming growth factor–β/SMAD4 signaling pathway. A constitutively active BRK (BRK-Y447F) phosphorylates SMAD4, resulting in its recognition by the ubiquitin-proteasome system, which accelerates SMAD4 degradation. Activated BRK–mediated degradation of SMAD4 is associated with the repression of tumor suppressor gene FRK and increased expression of mesenchymal markers, SNAIL, and SLUG. Thus, our data suggest that combination therapies targeting activated BRK signaling may have synergized the benefits in the treatment of SMAD4 repressed cancers. ...

Autumn tends to have darker or “earthier” tones and that palette can be found in our choices. They also make for great outfit layering. Some of the clothes, like sweater dresses or skirts, can be worn as they come when it’s still warmer during fall. When things start to cool down, leggings or jeans can be...
