Q. What is the best knot to use on shoe laces?

–Darwood, West Covina

A. Depends on what you’re using the shoe laces for. My friend Lumpy uses them like suspenders to hold his pants up. In that case, I’d suggest a trouser hitch.

Q. I have very long, very thick blonde hair that is quite eye-catching. When I accompany my Hollywood friends to their events, the press guys always photo me from behind, and my face doesn’t show. What can I do to get ME in the photos?

–Gigi, Pacific Palisades

A. Arrange your hair style over the front of your face and put your clothes on backwards. Then, when they’re taking your photo, poke your face through your hair at the last second.
