But the Dallas designer admits he never really expected it to come to fruition. Not only did it happen, but it became part of one of Beyoncé's most powerful projects, Black is King, the visual album released on Disney+ to great acclaim. When Zerina Akers, Beyoncé's stylist, first reached out to Etienne, the Project Runway alum didn't know what the coat he was asked to create would be used for.

TOKYO DRIFT GRAPEVINE CALLING MANY HAPPY RETURNS One of Tokyo's more popular noodle exports is heading to the greater Dallas area.

But now the hamlet gets a dose of more sophisticated fare. Hotel Vin and Harvest Hall open as part of the new $114 million Grapevine Main development — the food hall reminiscent of the grand 19th- century rail stations of America with archways, intricate tiled floors, and soaring 40-foot ceilings.

But when Greene moved to Aspen in 2007, many figured the party was over. But she moved back several years ago, and her latest restaurant, Monica's Mex- Tex Cantina, has slowly made a name for itself in The Cedars. Focusing on the Mex side of Tex-Mex, Monica's offers classic tacos and enchilada dishes, but it's the signature Mexican lasagna that really stands out. Sometimes, you can go home again.
