7:47 am
i said, we have to do something. it's gut-wrenching. is all i can say. >> the story that you heard is that students were stepping over her and just sort of ignoring her as she was in a fetal position sobbing. the south hadley principal dan smith, responded to that saying i can unequivocally say ever documented or reported to the school. it is also important to note that through both the d.a.'s investigation as far as i am aware and through our own investigation into the misbehavior of our students, this alleged incident was never identified, discussed or reported in any form. certainly it's probably something that's now being investigated. now that you've heard about this other case, this case in which a young woman named payton spinney is claiming she was bullied, maybe you want to weigh in on this, darby. what do you want to say about what's changed and not changed at the school? >> well, it was actually

8:15 am
of the -- that sort of mustard-melon color she wore just fit her perfectly. number one, it's a very grown-up dress. she's not a child but she has a great air and energy about her. this color just made her happy. it was great with her hair. she had beautiful green lorraine schwartz earrings, one of the few people who wore a lot of jewelry last night. the jewelers must be weeping. it wasn't a night for grand jewelry which took away some of the fun. this was a great dress because it worked in her color. >> and the great ruffles. i liked the ruffles. matt and i both liked anne hathaway's dress. what did you think? >> one of my favorites of the evening. this really spoke to the one trend i did notice is that the carpet felt more modest, covered up. the long-sleeved gowns. >> what about that one? >> that's the exception. we don't stare at the back much

8:17 am
hal, what did you think? she wore color. >> i thought she looked sensational. she's a newcomer. i saw "easy a" on the plane coming over and i was knocked out by her. she has a great whiskey and soda voice and yet she showed up in a transformation with the hair blond for the shooting of "spider-man" and the calvin dress is so clean, so simple and modern. once again, very little jewelry. sorry, jewelers. but she looked young and smart and like the next generation of hollywood which is what i think all these young stars should do instead of emulating older stars. >> bobbie, let's bring it back to you. >> i want the viewers to know what you were doing. matt is shaking his head going, oh, yes. >> i love simple. i'm not a ruffles person. i think that's simple and stunning. >> less is more. this is a big trend you will see this year. minimalism will be huge. a lot of people have seen

8:19 am
>> hal, i hope the control room is following. let's talk about january jones, one of the stars of "mad men." what did you think of the bright red dress? >> the bright red versace. that sure got your attention. she had seen it on versace's runway in blue. she's one of the new faces for versace for the ad campaign. she asked for it in red. i think it worked about 80%. i think maybe it was cut possibly a little bit too low. she's very thin. maybe a little bit too low, but the hair and makeup were sleek and went with it nicely. i wish there was a little bit -- i think the panelling on the sides could have been taken in more and it would have fit her better. >> halle berry, another risque dress. >> as al said, i don't think al noticed the dress at all. she's so ridiculously beautiful and, yes, it's like the dress
8:20 am
only partly showed up. the corsetry on top is fabulous, but the bottom is like not completely there. but her hair and makeup looked incredible. every man's jaw dropped on the red carpet. i won't criticize what she wore. >> now we'll talk about the color green making a big splash on the red carpet. why and did you like it? >> this was the jewel tone. we didn't see blue or purple. the emerald green was great. catherine zeta jones was one, mila kunis and angelina jolie all stepping out in the bold, regal -- even elisabeth moss here. >> helena bonham carter. she wore something quirky. >> i would be so disappointed -- and i think hal would feel the same, if she didn't show up in her own sense of style. she's got this victorian sensibility. i loved the mismatched shoes.

♪ this morning on "eat smart today" how healthy is your bread? you would think it would be easy, but with so many choices if you don't know what you're doing your diet could be toast. nutritionist and today contributor joy bauer is here to explain it. >> that was good. >> thank you. i have never thought of bread as being healthy for you. i don't know. i always thought it was something you would eat and it puts pounds on you. is that wrong? >> bread is healthy, particularly whole grain. if you eat a diet rich in whole grains like whole wheat bread it is linked to less heart disease, diabetes. one of the simplest swaps people can make to the diet is to get rid of the white bread and embrace whole grain breads. >> we'll find out if some are healthy or not. when you talk about whole grains and for as long as i know you, you have said get whole grains
8:45 am
into the diet. is bread the way to get it into the diet or other ways? >> there are a lot of ways. brown rice, quinoa, but whole wheat flour is a key way and that's what whole grain bread is made of. >> we are looking at labels here. we see wheat on the label. is that what we are looking for? >> no. that's what gets confusing. people think wheat and wheat flour is automatically healthy. they think it is whole wheat flour. if you have the word wheat, look at the label. if it's not preceded by the word "whole," it's basically junkie white refined flour. it's been stripped of all the goodness that whole grains have to offer. >> another word some people look for and you see a lot "unbleached." what does that mean? >> the nice thing about unbleached is it's not as processed but, matt, if you have unbleached wheat flour you are basically eating unbleached white, junk flour. it's not a bargain for your body. >> let's talk about multi grain.
8:46 am
is that what i'm looking for? >> multi grain, stone ground, those are descriptive words. tonight let it sway your options. >> go ahead. >> these are stellar whole grain varieties on the market. the nice part is the companies really do the work for you. they stamp right on the front, 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain. that's the signal that all the grains in the bread are healthy. arnold, martin's, even martin potato bread comes in whole wheat. pep ridge farm, nature's pride. >> should we look for calorie counts? >> it's a good start for people just to buy whole grain or wheel wheat bread. for sticklers for calories or looking to curb the carbs, there are great products to reduce the calories per slice. 40 to 50 calories per slice. we have arnold's, nature's own, pepperidge farm and weight watchers, but the main stream
8:47 am
companies make both varieties, wheat, white varieties. >> i'm going to skip forward to newer products out there in the market. i know you like these a lot. we have things like thins and flats and rounds. right? >> i love them. again, they come in both varieties, but when you look at the package and buy one that's 100% whole grain not only are they delicious and healthy, but the bottom and top slice equal a slice of bread. so you cut the carbs, calories and shower your body with whole grains. >> in a few seconds left, we have people trying to go gluten-free. what does that mean when buying bread? >> gluten-free breads are difficult to get in 100% whole grain. they become dry, but the brands up here, energy, foods for life, julian's bakery all have a decent amount of brown rice flour. these are good options for people. >> bottom line, we should have bread in the diet? >> bread is okay. moderate the amount you eat.
