"Unlike some male fashion designers who love nothing more than to embellish, shackle and encase female bodies, de la Renta always put the woman first, once musing, “It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on.” His clothes, particularly the red carpet gowns he was famous for, were impossibly flattering and always highlighted the wearer rather than adorning or overpowering her."
Rape victim billing fix proposed
Rape victims won’t get bills from hospitals for exams and tests under a plan unveiled Monday by the state health agency.
But the plan requires a change in state law and in some agency regulations, both of which will take months to accomplish, so victims still could receive the bills in the meantime.
Legislators pressed for quicker action Monday to temporarily halt what they called the unconscionable direct billing of sexual assault victims. State Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Kathy Kliebert said the state health agency is working with the Louisiana Hospital Association to come up with an interim solution.
