Here are a few raveled threads plucked from that highly charged evening at the Metropolitan Museum, put on by Vogue's Anna Wintour last week. (And, incidentally, did you know that the editor's rather controversial Chanel dress, described as looking a bit like ram's horns, was called "Storm"?) The big hit of the night, I'm told, was tennis ace Venus Williams in a bronze Carolina Herrera gown, wearing a Fred Leighton diadem upside down like a tennis band in her hair. She is being pronounced the best of the non-Hollywood A list.

Some time back, we broke the news that Demi Moore was hard at work trying to produce, direct and star in a feature film about Coco Chanel's life. But Demi, who looks as if she could still interpret Chanel's early years, has finally given up on this dream. Financing is difficult under any circumstances, but there are now three - count 'em three - biopics in the works on Coco. One will star Audrey Tautou. Then there's William Friedkin's version of Chanel, to star Marina Hands. And writer/director Daniele Thompson also has definite plans to bring the fashion genius to life onscreen.

At last week's couture shows in Paris, all the hoopla over rising hemlines almost obscured another fashion turnabout. Accessories were being treated like extra poundage -- trimmed down or eliminated.At Chanel, where the theory has always been "more is better" when it comes to gewgaws, there was not a strand of pearls, never mind the usual ropes of them, decorating a single model. The night before the show, the Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, was supervising the last-minute looks. The usual trays brimming with accessories were spread out before him. But instead of adding, he was subtracting.

Chanel does FryeThe old Frye biker boot, the one with a blunt toe and a ring at the ankle with three straps of leather, is having a revival. Models and fashion editors at the Paris shows could be seen clomping in and out of the fashion tents in the hippie-era shoes. Chanel, a classic house that increasingly goes to the street for inspiration, made a runway version with rounded toe and Chanel double-C brooches on the ring.If you are going to buy just one thing this spring, make it a pleated skirt.

At the recent fall preview of the Chanel collection in Paris few of the 1,000 spectators were ready for what came down the long catwalk: models wearing leather baseball caps, quilted leather jackets, distressed and ripped denim. Accessorizing many of the ensembles, even the chiffon dresses and classic Chanel jackets, were multiple thick gold chains. From one chain hung a huge license-plate-shape pendant that read "Chanel" in gold letters."It's the "nouveau" rapper look," designer Karl Lagerfeld declared.

In the movie The Devil Wears Prada, viewers watch as our heroine Anne Hathaway goes from a style-less blah to a stylish beauty with clothes, shoes and accessories any woman would swoon for. Chanel jackets. Gucci skirts. Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. Christian Louboutin calf-high boots. But Hathaway's Andy Sachs has help -- in a big way. She's able to borrow the latest, most coveted designer clothes from the storage closet of a fictional, glossy fashion magazine. Most of us aren't quite that lucky.

It's a surf war of sorts: Atlantic vs. Pacific, sunrise vs. sunset, from concentrate vs. fresh-squeezed, pines vs. palms. O.C. vs. The O.C. The people of Ocean City, Md. - known locally, of course, as O.C. - insist that they'd make a far better story line than a certain swankier beach community that has lately usurped their nickname. "Everyone knows that O.C. means Ocean City, not Orange County," said Rick Michaels, who air blasts T-shirts at Pop's Joke Shop, and who is not a fan of The O.C., Fox's hit nighttime soap about nattily dressed California teens and their lovelorn parents.

One of the season's most popular accents -- quilting -- provides a welcome warm touch to all sorts of outfits, from everyday to evening wear.The warm, snug, protective feeling that's part of the charm of quilting -- most of us cuddled up in quilts as children -- is emphasized by the materials that are being quilted. Rayon, silk and even the soft, soft calfskin of Chanel's classic quilted handbags add to the tactile, just-reach-out-and-touch-it quality of the stitch.Beverly Matthai, owner of Femme, believes the Chanel influence has much to do with quilting's new popularity.

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. -- The doe-eyed Marissa and her spunky friend Summer are lying by the pool in tiny bikinis, sunning and drinking Newport Beach iced tea (i.e., spiked) at 10 in the morning. It must be Fox TV's soapy hit series The O.C., which is back for a second season starting Thursday at 8 p.m. But those aren't just any bikinis. Marissa (Mischa Barton) is wearing a white Calvin Klein with tortoise shell detailing, and Summer (Rachel Bilson) is in a fuchsia pink Dolce & Gabbana.
