LONDON - As the war between Russia-backed separatists and the Ukraine government still raged in eastern Ukraine, another shocking news story involving Russia developed last week: the killing of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov on a bridge in Moscow.
Russian police have promised a full investigation into the midnight shooting of Nemtsov in central Moscow. Hundreds paid their respects with flowers where he was gunned down.
MILAN - Model Bianca Balta won applause of approval as she walked down the Dolce&Gabbana runway in an advanced stage of pregnancy. It was part of the designing duo's early Mother's Day present to women, a collection dedicated to moms.
Elsewhere around Milan, the 1970s got a revival by the young design team Au Jour Le Jour, Missoni reached out for a younger audience and Giorgio Armani launched what may become his "It" bag.
