You put it on along with your stockings, and you're almost dressed.""It's the modern blouse of the '90s," designer Josie Natori says.Panne or smooth velvet, sheers, glittery knits and embroidered lace are the top holiday looks, according to Karen Bromley, speaking for the Intimate Apparel Council.

X-Men: The Last Stand Rating -- PG-13. What it's about -- The X-Men go to war with the Brotherhood, mutants who don't play nice. The Kid Attractor Factor -- Comic book heroes brawl like ninjas, women try to make relationships with their men work, and Mystique wears that paint-on blue bodysuit. Good lessons/bad lessons -- Be true to your school. And just because we're different, that doesn't mean we need to be "cured." Violence -- Quite a bit more than the first two X's. Language -- Quite a bit more profane than the first two X's. Sex -- Almost.
