I've always thought that we don't use articles when the adjective is descriptive as in "Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas". And that we do use them when the adjective makes the proper noun different from its original form as in "The bewildered Smith has arrived"  (that is, as opposed to Smith's regular condition). But I don't think that's true, since I'm only guessing. So, what's the rule for that one?

When should one use articles with adjective+proper noun?
