Fancies of the fashion world are often dismissed by the general public. The latest wacky get-ups from the runways of New York, Paris and Milan are greeted by just plain folks with derisive hoots or profound puzzlement over who in their right mind would want to wear such stuff. The newest concept from the couture capitals also appears worthy of laughter, except that response might downplay an idea more disturbing than those fashion designers tend to serve up.Yes, it's hot, it's to die for, it's -- the baby doll look for grown women!

  We're expecting. What's the best way to introduce a new baby to our cat and dog? This will be a time of big changes for everyone, including your pets. They will be in tune to all of the anxiety, excitement and stress that will fill your household. It's important to help your other "babies" adjust to the new one you'll soon be bringing home. Make every new experience for your pet as positive as possible. As you bring new baby gear into your home, pair it with treats so that the big scary stroller and swing will become not so scary for your pets and eventually a normal part of life.

As part of its continuing Elia Kazan tribute, the AFI Silver in Silver Spring presents on Tuesday Baby Doll (1956), a film that succeeds where so many others (including John Ford's Tobacco Road) have failed - at making high aesthetic inroads into low rural farce. Kazan had the idea for Tennessee Williams to combine two of his one-act plays, Twenty-Seven Wagons Full of Cotton and The Long Stay Cut Short, or The Unsatisfactory Supper, into an original screenplay filled with comic hubris and erotic heat.

THE REVIVAL OF THE MINI-skirt may well have been the catalyst.Since consumers accepted the idea of hiking their hemlines a year or so ago, an avalanche of '60s-inspired fashions has been let loose.Ethnic earrings were followed by shift dresses, stirrup pants, wide stretch headbands, op art prints, fishnet stockings and retro color combinations such as orange with fuchsia and lime with purple.And now, the baby doll.Remember Twiggy, all big-eyed and bowlegged in sweet little dresses trimmed with white collars and cuffs?

You've seen them, mother, daughter and granddaughter out for a day of shops and lunch. They have clothes in common. With some allowances for size and proportion, chances are they're wearing similar outfits -- shorts, jeans or stretchy pants, an easy top and comfortable shoes with some zip.It's a fairly new picture for the women of the family.Fashion today has relaxed the conventions which bound generations of women to "dressing their age." Grandmothers show their knees and wear strappy sandals, mothers shop funky boutiques and sis wears sophisticated black to her seventh birthday party.

When the telephone rings and the voice says, "Let the good times roll, baby doll," it's the distinctive calling card of Don Larsen, an uncomplicated, gentle man who has never made the mistake of being impressed with himself or the notoriety he achieved.The first and only perfect game in the history of the World Series, truly an epic baseball achievement, is the sole property of this refreshingly, honest-to-a-fault individual who never let a team curfew stand in the way of a good time.Larsen is visiting in Baltimore with one of his best friends, Frank Ferrari, a man he got to know when he was pitching for the Baltimore Orioles after the city re-joined the American League in 1954.

Air travel sure is a big old laundry hamper of fun these days. That's what I was thinking as I was removing my clothing in front of hundreds of people at the Denver airport (which is located in Wyoming). For some reason, my traveling party had been singled out by the security people for a near-proctological level of scrutiny. This surprised me, because my party consisted of me, my wife and our 20-month-old daughter. I cannot imagine terrorists getting anything done if they were traveling with a baby.

There was no eulogy at the funeral service, just the requisite prayers and some reflections on redemption through Christ. Instead, the life of a local girl was left unadorned. Too much was already known."There will be no whitewash," the minister declared, by way of explanation.Kim Renee Derr died in a West Baltimore Street alley, her body broken by a four-story fall from the top of a run-down rooming house. The detectives figured suicide, and the medical examiner agreed. A boyfriend was with her when she went off the roof; he told them about how she had been smoking cocaine and drinking Bacardi all morning, rambling on about how she wasn't pretty enough and how she had nothing to live for.In the 408 Club on Baltimore's Block, where Kim Derr danced, there was some grief but little surprise.

New York-- --Women blessed with the gift of gams will be pleased with what's showing up on the storied runways at Bryant Park this week. Halfway through the eight-day extravaganza that is Fashion Week -- the biannual showcase of the most acclaimed designers' new collections -- several trends and continuation of trends have surfaced. One of the biggest seems to be showing a lot of leg. On runway after runway, models were decked out in teensy thigh-skimming creations, from baby bubble dresses and short shorts to jumper-style one pieces and miniskirts.

In Dan Van Allen's world, it's all about art and vast collections of objects - from valuable pieces of Hindu sculpture to plain old stuff purchased in thrift shops around town. All of these things are housed in two adjoining brick rowhouses (circa 1850) in the Hollins Market area of Southwest Baltimore. Van Allen is a mixed-media artist and a furniture restorer by trade. He lives in the 2 1/2 -story home with his partner, Spoon Popkin, a portrait painter. In 1980, he bought the first rowhouse on South Arlington Street for $10,000.

Looking for the true meaning of Christmas? You could try going all the way to Bethlehem or, thanks to the Heavenly Dolls Co., maybe pick up the next best thing: a Baby Jesus Doll. Heavenly Dolls is selling a 13-inch "soft vinyl" replica of the Messiah for $25. The doll comes with a glow-in-the-dark halo and is wrapped in a baby blue blanket. Heavenly Dolls offers black, Caucasian, Hispanic and Latin versions of the doll. And company founder Rita Webber said she'd be happy to accommodate requests for dolls of other ethnicities.

Q: In the fall collections I saw a lot of what I call "Lolita" looks: models wearing baby-doll dresses, Mary Janes and fold-down socks. I'm tall, in my early 30s, and I've always dreamed about wearing this look, but I'm frightened that at my age I might look ridiculous. What do you think?A: This look, as part of the retro '60s trend, is important for fall. The secret of wearing it is not to go all-out. Believe me, a total retro look is too costumey, whether you are 13 or 30.My suggestion is to follow the philosophy of New York designer Anna Sui, who uses retro ideas more successfully than any other designer I know.

I THINK sometimes about a girl I met in Brooklyn. She was 14, and pregnant and philosophical."If Vanise does it, I can," she said, Vanise being the neighborhood dim bulb, the girl whose conversation ranged from a giggle to a shrug, whose own mother said that if you looked in one of her ears you could see daylight.Vanise had had a baby, and she was so dim that it was commonplace for her to order a slice at the pizza place and then discover she had no money and be obliged to cadge a buck from a boy. (There was some suggestion of a causal relationship between the slice, the cadging and the baby.

Oh, grow up! If designers showing their spring collections here are trying to draw a younger customer into the designer market, they've regressed too far -- to kindergarten, in fact.Kiddie chic may be cute as the dickens on the playground set, but the grown-ups with fat piggy banks who can afford these clothes had better be careful.Take the baby doll dress, please. Those sweet designs with a high bodice and full, short little skirt are the darlings of the runways, and at their most extreme, at Anna Sui's show.
