As Veronica Elizabeth stepped onto the red carpet at the Alex Theatre on Sunday, she was immediately mobbed by "paparazzi" and a "fashion commentator" who stopped to ask her about the dress she was wearing. The 15-year-old wore a yellow dress with lace and green Converse sneakers. "I've had this dress for a couple of months so I thought I should dress it up with these shoes and make it a new trend," Veronica said. Veronica was one of hundreds of guests who wore their best evening clothes and walked down the red carpet for the Alex Theatre's Academy Awards viewing party.

Jacqui Brown Under the light fall of snow on a chilly night stars strutted across the red carpet at the Alex Theatre. Although the snow was not real, the glamour was, and hundreds of fans, young and old, gathered to watch as some of the most popular Armenian singers headed inside to enjoy a glass of champagne before hitting the stage to perform their favorite songs. The first performer, Nersik Ispiryan, got the crowd going as he cruised up to the red carpet in a white stretch Cadillac Escalade.

Last Friday, the new Nordstrom at the Americana at Brand opened to the public with a flourish. All three stories of the 135,000-square-foot building were packed with hundreds of potential customers ready to drop some cash at the store's 10 a.m. opening. But that was after its grand-opening gala a few days before. For those willing to spend $100 a pop, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, cocktails and live entertainment were readily available. But first, champagne. Guests were served by waiters balancing glasses of the bubbly on trays.

In addition, the youngsters had to write their own scripts without help from parents and accomplish all the directing.

After 50 years in Glendale, Red Carpet Wine & Spirits is pulling up stakes and moving to Arcadia. To some, it's the end of an era. Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz said he bought cigars at Red Carpet to hand out after the birth of his first child. “If you wanted to get a good bottle of wine and pick out a good cigar, that was the place to go,” Lorenz said Wednesday. Opened in 1964 on Brand Boulevard by John Vincenti, the liquor store that specializes in fine wines moved to 400 E. Glenoaks Blvd.
