Longtime KABC-TV lead anchor Laura Diaz says she has a bounce in her step she hasn't had in years as she moves from the top news ratings-grabber in Los Angeles to become the lead female anchor at No. 3 KCBS and sister station KCAL. "I know what it feels like to be No. 1," says Diaz, 46, who spent nearly 20 years with KABC. "I just wanted the chance to create something new." News Director Nancy Bauer Gonzales, who worked with Diaz at KSBY in San Luis Obispo, California, in the early '80s, says Diaz's popular brand of reporting and anchoring will help the stations even more than her connections to the Hispanic community, but "I don't think that any one person becomes a magic bullet for the network anymore." Both of Diaz's new stations are owned by CBS parent Viacom. Diaz will make appearances on CBS News' "48 hours" and "The Early Show." She says the change came at the right moment. "It's sort of like the planets lined up for me."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
