NEW YORK (AP) – Everyone knows that black is the fashion world's favorite color, except in the spring especially this spring.

After a winter that pummeled many regions with snow, ice and cold, the chic set has agreed that it's time to break out the daffodil yellow, grass green and sky blue.

"When the concept of spring came to fruition, it was the dead of winter," says J. Crew's head of women's design, Marissa Webb. "Everyone's mood is just waiting for warmth and the color that comes with it."

LONDON (AP) – Prince William looks like someone who has it all: royal status, a charming fiancee, good health, and an easy touch with his future subjects. But there is one thing he lacks: a full head of hair.

Casual observers who have not paid much attention to Britain's future king in the years before his recent engagement to Kate Middleton have been surprised by the extent of the 28-year-old's hair loss. William still cuts a tall, imposing figure, but his bald spot has been spreading as his hairline recedes.
