Hollywood’s fashionistas including Nicole Kidman, Hailee Steinfeld and Julianne Moore embraced the lighter end of the color spectrum this weekend. At the 26th Annual Santa Barbara Film Festival on Friday, award recipient Nicole Kidman wore a sophisticated belted Nina Ricci shirtdress, which she paired with strappy putty-colored Pierre Hardy heels and an Omega watch. At the same event, Oscar nominee, Hailee Steinfeld, opted for a feminine cap-sleeved Alberta Ferretti frock, punctuated by red Aldo pumps. The following night, in N.Y.C., Moore was red, black and white all over, juxtaposing fiery tendrils with a stark white smock by The Row and matte tights at an HRC event. We think this lightened look is divine, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Are creamy dresses white hot or a major ‘do not’?Justine Harman

It will, Juan, but it is just the first step. Investors have been burned badly by Venezuela. They are going to put their toes in the water for aihwle, before diving in. And they are going to want to see substantive changes, not just rhetoric. With a change in administration, we can expect a small wave of speculative investment, and investment in industries with a fairly rapid return on investment, such as tourism. But substantial long-term investment is going to wait until Venezuela has demonstrated that they can establish and maintain the following:Physical Security: Investors will want to see the crime rates brought down to acceptable levels. Few companies want to send their employees and capital to a location that is dangerous and lawless.Infrastructure Security: Investors will want to know that they can count on a dependable supply of electricity and water. They will want to know that the the ports and transportation are dependable.Economic Security: Investors will want to see that there are rational, stable and sustainable economic policies in place. The currency controls systems have to go. What is the point of making profits if you can’t repatriate them easily?Juridical Security: Investors will want to know what the law is and that it is applied fairly and efficiently. They need to see that the recent history of laws being decreed without discussion or notice and then applied immediately or even retroactively is finished. They need to know that they have effective recourse when contracts are abrogated. They need to know that their property rights are taken seriously and protected by the rule of law.Political Security: They will want to be assured that whatever changes they see are for the long-term. This means that they will want to see the independence of the political institutions of the country reestablished and the centralization of power reversed. They will want to be reassured that the country is not vulnerable to yet another populist caudillo who will suddenly reverse all the promises made to entice them to invest.They will understand that all of these things take time, but the investment will come only in proportion to Venezuela’s (the country; not just the administration) demonstrated commitment to, and success in working to achieve these things. Venezuela does not have a right to expect foreign investment. It will have to be earned.
