CHEVY CHASE - When people opine about "women of substance," there's a tendency to fixate on those solid, studious types, with sensible hair and various advanced degrees. But there is something to be said for the substance involved in simply being a woman of beauty. Carolina Herrera, arguably the top female designer in American fashion, is one of those women. For all those who would argue that accoutrements are frivolous and fashion is silly, her steady rise to prominence in our stubbornly low-rise, denim-and-khakis society proves that there is room still for women who bring to every affair effortless grace and impeccable style.

NEW YORK -- At first, there seemed to be nothing unusual about Oscar de la Renta's latest fashion show. There were the requisite socialites and editors who planted Chaneled behinds on chairs at the posh Americas Society mansion on the Upper East Side. And all around them were tea-rose-hued walls, sparkling chandeliers and large fireplaces to set the stage for de la Renta's customarily opulent creations. But when the models began sashaying out, the show's distinguishing detail became apparent.

NEW YORK -- Don't hate fashion designer Matt Nye because he's beautiful, or because he's the companion of media maverick Jann Wenner, or because he's traveled through Europe in five-star style with former boss Ralph Lauren. "Yes, good looks, youth, a level of notoriety, can open doors. For whatever reason people may be curious about me," says Nye, 34, while lounging in his Upper West Side studio. "What you choose to do with those opportunities once they're created is up to you. In the end, it's your work that's going to speak louder than who you're with or what you look like."

Though some feared the economy would cast its gloomy shadow over the red carpet, if anything, stars glittered even more last night, as if to spite the recession. In statement necklaces with fat jewels that couldn't be ignored. With shoulders bared. With hair pulled loosely into seductive buns. With flamboyant sequins, luxe beads, compelling architectural details and fabric pleated in delicate wedding-cake layers. Some chose vibrant jewel tones - notably Amy Adams in a fitted ruby gown by Carolina Herrera, Freida Pinto in a sapphire, Bollywood-inspired dress by John Galliano and Heidi Klum in a bright rose Roland Mouret.
