Tonight, thousands of fans will pour into Washington's MCI Center to behold the latest incarnation of Cher, as pop-rock's ageless chanteuse kicks off the first week of touring for her latest album, Living Proof. Many will carry with them - or perhaps snap up from vendors - something from among the huge variety of Cher-inspired ephemera: Cher Barbies, T-shirts, stuffed bears, watches, buttons, even Cher tarot cards. But for at least a few others, merchandise isn't enough. They want to be Cher, emulating her, um, unique style.

WASHINGTON -- The gown is Vegas-lite -- form-fitting, flesh-colored fabric with curving strands of strategically placed beads.It's barely anything, and at the same time it's too much.The onlookers at Bob Mackie's fashion show at Neiman Marcus are buzzing.

Only one word is clear: "Cher."Since he first joined forces with the performer on the "Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour" in the '70s, Mackie has been designing the showstoppers that helped make her a star.

Hemlines are lower, for example, and silhouettes are looser."I think there is a definite trend toward conservatism because of what is taking place on the world stage," said Lynn Manulis, president of Martha and Martha International."All of our priorities are changing accordingly," she said.

The high back and arms kept the heat of the fireplace near the sitter and shielded the person from drafts.Central heating made the wing chair less popular, but the design has survived, thanks to the fact that it is so comfortable.
