I beg to differ with my crabby colleagues about the CFDA Awards on Monday night. After reading their coverage on Wednesday, I felt as if I’d been at a different event.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
