Johnny Depp and his Gallic muse, singer Vanessa Paradis, have broken up after 14 years and two children, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9. "Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated," Depp's rep tells Entertainment Tonight in a terse statement. The end began months ago. The two haven't done the red carpet together for more than a year. (Families who do the red carpet together, stay together, my granddad used to say.) Seems they've led separate lives ever since they quit France, where they lived in the idyllic village of Plan-de-la-Tour, a hamlet of fewer than 3,000 souls in the southeast.

Hollywood's red carpet hasn't been the same since British design duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig established the luxe eveningwear line that is Marchesa. Just look at photographs from the most recent carpet season: Actresses Sandra Bullock and Viola Davis as well George Clooney's girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, donned the duo's figure-friendly gowns. Other celebs hot for Marchesa include singers, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus and young thespian Olivia Wilde. Marchesa - named after the early 20th-century Italian heiress Luisa Casati - is available nationwide at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman.

Lindsay Lohan 's P.R. rehab continues apace with a sweet coup: LiLo on Thursday chatted on no less a forum than Today , a preamble to an even bigger score - hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. Much heart, truth, sorrow, and joy poured forth over Today cohost Matt Lauer . "I still need to go through the process of proving myself," LiLo told Matt, "you know, with SNL , being on time [for rehearsals], being, you know, keeping my . . . stuff together.

Now that the 2012 red-carpet hoopla is over, another high-drama fashion season is under way. Prom. If teens take their cues from this year's awards shows, high school gyms will be chock-full of old-school Hollywood glamour. Along with the latest blush tones, I'm predicting a plethora of frocks in fiery reds like the peplumed Louis Vuitton Michelle Williams wore Sunday night at the Oscars. (My absolute fave.) Bluish greens and cobalt blue will be important, too, and we can't forget black.

The color of the night at the 84th annual Academy Awards was winter white, as celebrities from Jennifer Lopez to Octavia Spencer worked the red carpet in delicate and sparkling ecru gowns. After a 2012 award season that popped with saturated reds, greens, and blues, Sunday night's gown choices were on the pale side. But on Hollywood's classiest night of the year, we'd expect nothing less. The Oscars are about playing it radiant but low key, so nudes and creams are the obvious choice.

As the Hollywood glitterati gather Sunday night in Tinseltown to honor the movie industry's best, L. Di Caprio will be among those walking the red carpet. In Malvern. No, not the hunky actor - he doesn't spell his name with a space before the "C. " Starring at Malvern's Oscar Night festivities will be one Lisa Di Caprio and her business partner, Darci Henry. Owners of Kiss and Makeup cosmetics boutique on King Street, the pair have organized a black-tie Academy Awards bash with help from nearby Restaurant Alba.

I'm checking the mail every day, waiting for a gorgeous ivory envelope of considerable heft to fall out of the mailbox. And there, in perfect script, will be my invitation to the Academy Awards. I deserve it. As someone who papered her childhood room with pictures of movie stars, and who more recently has plunked down unconscionable admission prices to see movies of questionable merit, I think it's payback time. So I stand ready to take my seat at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday.

EVEN THOUGH millions of grown-ups know far too much about Ron Weasley and Voldemort, J.K. Rowling, author of the gold-minting, money-printing "Harry Potter" series has an agreement with Little, Brown in the U.S. and Britain to release her first adult novel. Actually, it's more likely a novel for adults unless Ms. Rowling plans to get her freak on. The title, release date and details about the long-rumored book have not been announced. A neighbor of Rowling's in Edinburgh, author Ian Rankin , tweeted yesterday that he thinks Rowling has written a mystery novel.

Have any doubts that Bart and Homer Simpson have totally defined the culture? Consider this: Fox's animated social satire (and hilarious 'toon) will air its 500th episode , "At Long Last Leave," on Sunday. Ay caramba! It's a feat. Only two other prime-time scripted series have reached this milestone, Gunsmoke (635) and Lassie (588). "I never imagined this," Matt Groening , the wigged-out genius behind the show, tells USA Today.

Gowns in sparkling nudes and vibrant shades were the major red-carpet trends Saturday evening at the 155th Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball. Off-the-shoulder gowns seemed just as popular as strapless ones. And A-line silhouettes were preferred to ball gowns. In fact, Philadelphia's doyennes stepped up the glamour quotient to such heights that some of the dresses were dead ringers for gowns worn by celebrities on red carpets past. For example, first lady Lisa Nutter was particularly radiant sailing up the Academy of Music steps in a deep purple Nicole Miller gown.
