A collection of sketches and songs for those with a twisted sense of humor. If you can laugh at a man who picks up a loaded revolver, thinking it’s a phone, you'll love this L.A. improv group.
Don Rickles, Wayne Newton Theatre, Stardust Resort and Casino, 3000 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Aug. 29-Sept. 1. For tickets, call 800-824-6033.

This 13-member dance troupe from the famed Paris nightspot Crazy Horse (think a smaller version of Les Folies Bergère) is wowing Vegas audiences with its provocative choreography and equally titillating lighting displays.

Rita Rudner calls it like it is, but with a quirky twist. Her specialty: women, men and everything that comes between them.
Siegfried & Roy Present Darren Romeo: The Voice of Magic, Siegfried & Roy Theatre, The Mirage, Tues. -Sat., 3 p.m. For tickets, call 800-963-9634.
Siegfried & Roy call him their protégé, but 26-year-old Romeo is more than a magician. The crafty songbird delights audiences with a voice as magical as his tricks.

A Broadway import in which the audience plays its own role…that of Tony and Tina’s invited "guests." This crowd-pleaser keeps ’em rolling in the aisles —and afterwards, rolling up to a full-on Italian buffet, complete with champagne and wedding cake.
Air Supply, Suncoast Showroom, Suncoast Hotel & Casino, 9090 Alta Drive, Aug. 30 - Sept. 1, 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call 702-365-7065.
Lead singers Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell may have started Air Supply nearly thirty years ago, but the soft-rock group is still going strong. Be transported to the Eighties, the decade when the band scored seven hit singles in two years.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
“These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering differently abled adults to express themselves through fashion,” said @tommyhilfiger of his line of adaptive apparel, which launches today. The line consists of 37 men’s and 34 women’s styles based upon the pieces from the spring Tommy Hilfiger sportswear collection. #wwdnews
