Best Fashion Week Everything: The Blonds show. Over-the-top, camp, and fabulous as usual. -- E.T.

Cutest Space Exploration News: Voyager 1, which was launched in 1977 and "carries an 8-track tape recorder and computers with one-240,000th the memory of a low-end iPhone," is the first probe to edit the solar system. Go, little guy, go! -- M.K.
