Good afternoon, everyone. Need a lunch hour diversion? Read through the transcript of today's Reliable Source chat. You'll find cautionary advice on Oscar crasher attire (black tie, but you should have known that already), the real reason Caps players are always eating at The Palm ($100 food vouchers!) and sightings of Roxanne doppelgangers all over town! (Not really Roxanne, she swears.) Very educational, really.

Elsewhere in today's news:

  • It's Fashion Week in New York City, and Robin Givhan is there. "The most difficult thing to be in the women's ready-to-wear industry -- aside from a size 16 -- is a grown-up," she writes, taking us on a zany tour through new fashions from Peter Som (tie-dyed mink), Jason Wu ("bell-shaped dresses inflated by thick crinolines") and Donna Karan ("one of her most powerful and sensual collections in some time"). Want more? Dip into the Post's full Fashion Week coverage.

  • Arena Stage's $125 million makeover is slated for completion in July. Peter Marks takes a look -- and it's gorgeous.

  • Charlie Gasparino has left CNBC for Fox Business Network.

  • Did you know? The Vancouver Winter Olympics medals "weigh between 17 and 20 ounces . . . and are just under four inches across. The gold medal is mostly silver but is covered in gold. The silver medal is all silver. And the bronze medal? It's made of copper."
