Actress Mae West is known for saying, “Without diamonds, honey, I’d feel undressed.” That is how the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (MFA) introduced their exhibit “Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen.”

The exhibit’s curators, Michelle Tolini Finamore, the fashion curator, and Emily Stoehrer, the jewelry curator, have beautifully exhibited dresses from the “golden age” of film, the 1930s and early 1940s. The two refer to the dresses and the era of the dresses as the “perfect antidote to the deprivations of the Great Depression [and] luxury for the price of a movie ticket.”

Her debut album, “Pure Heroine,” was released September 30th in the U.S., making Lorde an international sensation. More…

Once you walk into Johnny’s Luncheonette, a short walk from the Newton Centre T stop, you will feel like you are being transported back to the 60’s with the restaurant’s old-school American vibe.
