Though some feared the economy would cast its gloomy shadow over the red carpet, if anything, stars glittered even more last night, as if to spite the recession. In statement necklaces with fat jewels that couldn't be ignored. With shoulders bared. With hair pulled loosely into seductive buns. With flamboyant sequins, luxe beads, compelling architectural details and fabric pleated in delicate wedding-cake layers. Some chose vibrant jewel tones - notably Amy Adams in a fitted ruby gown by Carolina Herrera, Freida Pinto in a sapphire, Bollywood-inspired dress by John Galliano and Heidi Klum in a bright rose Roland Mouret.

The death last week in New York of Penelope Pearl Russianoff is reason to recall the life of the noted psychologist, therapist and writer, who was born in Baltimore and spent her early years growing up in Roland Park. Russianoff, who is also remembered for her cameo role in the feature film "An Unmarried Woman," died at her home on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She was 82. Considered an expert on teaching women how to assert themselves, Russianoff had been on the faculty of the New School for Social Research from 1960 until the late 1990s, in addition to maintaining a private practice.

Before all these rumors and innuendos get out of hand, I want to set the record straight regarding me and Penelope Cruz. In case you have not heard, both Penelope and I recently were on the Today show on exactly the same day. As I am sure you are aware, Penelope is a top female star who has been romantically linked to Tom Cruise. Before that, she was romantically linked to Matt Damon and Nicolas Cage. Penelope is just one of those female celebrities who are natural linkers. Whenever she gets into a confined space with a male celebrity -- boom, they become linked, and nothing can separate them, until another male celebrity comes within range.

Penelope stars Christina Ricci as Penelope Wilhern, a blue-blood born with a pig's snout because of a curse put on the Wilhern clan when it refused to let one of her 19th-century forebears marry a servant girl. She can break the curse only when a fellow aristocrat vows to love her for life, so her mother (Catherine O'Hara) hides her away in the family manse until she's of a marriageable age. Not even the most careful preparation can keep a succession of upper-class twits from jumping out a second-story window when they finally clap eyes on her. The movie is about what happens after one of those marital petitioners (Simon Woods)

Not Me Michael Lavigne Random House / 320 pages The premise of Lavigne's debut novel is nothing short of brilliant. Michael Rosenheim, a stand-up comedian in his 40s, grew up with a father who survived the Holocaust to become a pillar of the New Jersey Jewish community, a fervent supporter of Israel, and a champion of Jewish causes around the world. Now, as the old man is dying of Alzheimer's in a Florida nursing home, Michael finds a box of diaries revealing that in fact his father was not Heshel Rosenheim but Heinrich Mueller, a Nazi accountant at the death camp Majdanek who, in the final weeks of the war, pretended to be Jewish, starving and tattooing himself in order to be rescued as a survivor.
