Overrated

Fashion followers are buzzing about Yves St. Laurent's cage shoes, already the subject of knockoff frenzy. But I object to more than the YSL price tag ($1,200-$1,500 a pair, anyone?). Unlike some bondage-themed accessories, they're not sexy. Which is the whole point.

Underrated

Don't listen to the unimaginative twerps holding their noses at Sam Mendes' "Revolutionary Road." Leo DiCaprio does his best acting since "Gilbert Grape." And good as she was in "The Reader," Kate Winslet should've won her Oscar for this role, which required far more from her.
