NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- My review of the major events in healthcare during the first half of May continues below. Part one of this column was published last week.

Now that flannel and crop tops have officially hit their saturation point, it feels like maybe '90s nostalgia has run its course. Here are a few trends that got left behind and are actually looking kind of fresh again? Or maybe they were left behind for a reason.
Don't believe me? Watch this video.
And not some half-formed, new hero to appease their diversifying audience. Who in the DC stable of characters do you think is the most likely candidate?
I've never heard of the UK mag, but according to a poll of their readers, Kimmy K. is the hottest female on earth. I guess being a terrible person didn't really factor in.

"I think if you still have TV shows that are run by men that are really old-school, you're still gonna have old-school problems. But as shows start coming up where younger men and younger women are running those shows, I think they run them the way their lives are—which is full of men and women."

It's a third tier sort of award show that audiences watch for the spectacle rather than the credibility. The good thing about this is that it gives everyone license to show up looking and acting crazy, without any attempt at being serious. (Those who try too hard to look serious and Oscars-y always end up looking the most out of place.) Ahead, Katy Perry and her grandma, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus and more photos of the crazy outfits/people at the 2012 Billboard Awards.
This is going to take you waaay back.

Chan, anything but a stereotypical billionaire's wife according to Forbes, will start her job as a pediatrician later this year.
