We should be clear: The good people who we begged and pleaded with to model in this month’s fashion feature are a modest bunch. They didn’t want to be billed as the most beautiful people or the hottest people or anything else, but we think you’ll agree that they make the clothes they wear from some of our best boutiques look really, really good. We thank everyone involved. Click Here.

Writer Richard Gaw has never let us down. With only vague direction—show us why the culture gap between upstate and downstate is not as narrow as many think—he delivered a beautiful exploration of how the population drift toward Kent and Sussex counties has transformed the area.

If you want to see it in action, there’s no better time to visit than November, when many of the events—jazz festivals, film festivals, Punkin Chunkin’ and more—take place. See “The (Not So) Great Divide” here.
It’s also a great time to discover birding in Delaware. Read about a new emphasis on ecotourism in The State, here. And if you’ve followed the career of UD hoopster Elena Delle Donne, you won’t want to miss The Profile, here. Enjoy.
