After a slump in foreign visitors triggered by a deadly attack last year, a new wave of local sightseers has saved tourism in Pakistan's idyllic northern Hunza Valley - but not everyone is happy. Though there are no official figures, hotel owners say large numbers of domestic tourists are visiting in unprecedented numbers, heading north to escape the sizzling heat of summer that lasts well into October.

Actor Hugh Grant, who became the poster boy for the charming British fop in romantic comedies such as "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Notting Hill," is delighted not to be part of Hollywood anymore.
Film director Martin Scorsese knew making a documentary about a revered literary review would be a challenge, so he approached "The 50 Year Argument" like a piece of music, using interviews and archival footage to convey the emotion.

With the help of Oscar de la Renta, Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli and Dolce & Gabbana, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin vaulted into the top echelons of Hollywood fashion with her stylish Italian wedding to actor George Clooney.

Sonia Rehman Qureshi is perhaps the only antiquary in Karachi. She collects, studies and deals in antique furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries. She held an exhibition late last month, showcasing a fine collection of furniture at the Frere Hall. Though people came to see, hardly any asked for the price list. She is not discouraged. From her vivacious demeanor it was plain to see she, nevertheless, regarded the show a huge success.
