It's a Wednesday evening at the Pop Physique studio in downtown Baltimore, and a dozen women -- most clad in leggings, T-shirts and socks -- are rotating their hips while trying to hold an exercise ball between their thighs.   "Great job, guys!" says instructor Smithy Onattu, directing her students via a headset as a playlist with songs such as Lana Del Rey's "Florida Kilos" and "Tumblr Girls" by rapper G-Eazy pumps through the art-filled space. Over the course of an hour, the group will tackle a series of exercises: planks and push-ups, plies and other ballet moves.

Some in the British press have taken to calling the softer, more stylish look recently adopted by the newlywed Duchess of Cornwall, "Camilla chic." But for her first United States visit since marrying Prince Charles, the Camilla who showed up here this week merely looked appropriate. Fine. Neat. Maybe "chic" means something else in the United Kingdom, the way "lift" means "elevator" there, not a ride to a particular destination. "We're in a sorry state of affairs if we're calling that `chic,'" says Dannielle Romano, editor-at-large of DailyCandy.

Part 1 of a three-part series. GEORGETOWN - Who says a community steeped in 250 years of American history can't maintain that certain hip factor? Sure, Georgetown has lovely historic homes, legendary institutions and enough political lore to fill the nearby Potomac River. But lining these famously upscale, stroll-worthy streets are not only SUVs and town cars with diplomatic tags but also hundreds of shops, restaurants, art galleries and nightspots. They are patrician and funky, all-American and international, classy and cool, youthful and mature - basically like the neighborhood itself, which is bordered by the Potomac, Rock Creek Park and Georgetown University.

First comes love, then comes marriage and then comes time to pick out the baby carriage - and decorate the nursery. Already the tabloids are speculating on the room where England's heir to the throne will lay his royal head when Prince William's and Kate Middleton's baby is born in July. And even though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren't quite in sync with the old rhyme, the gossip magazines are anticipating the extravagant nursery the couple will add to their $11 million mansion in Bel Air. Not to mention the nursery that Joe Flacco and his wife, Dana, can create for their second child with the Ravens quarterback's new $120.6 million deal.

Like many young professionals who work in or near Baltimore, Jon and Jenny Kraft searched for city properties when they decided to build a home together. "We looked at myriad different houses and could not find one that was designed for how we live and was also located in a walkable community," said Jon Kraft. His wife noted that parking, open layout, roof deck, fireplace and a minimum of three bedrooms were also priorities. They ultimately found a tailor-made answer to their requirements in The Townes at Locust Point, an enclave of 71 three-story brick townhouses built by Ruppert Homes Urban Redevelopment.

It was the decade taste forgot, a time of Dacron and disco, "Shaft" and smiley faces, platform shoes and "The Partridge Family." We're speaking, of course, of the '70s, a time of stupid fads, silly clothes and sappy music -- an era which, for most people, seemed like 10 straight years of bad-hair days.And suddenly, it's the hippest thing around.Seventies chic. It sounds preposterous, doesn't it? Yet the evidence is all around us, from the astounding success of "The Real Live Brady Bunch," a stage show offering slavishly accurate re-enactments of sitcom episodes, to the inexplicable resurgence of basso balladeer Barry White, who has popped up everywhere from "Arsenio" to "The Simpsons."

Jennifer Hauser Runde spent her early career as a choreographer, channeling her artistic talents into stories told through dance. But after Runde and husband Christopher welcomed a baby boy in 2006, and purchased their first house soon after, she happily shifted her priorities. Life was less about dance steps than baby steps — especially when their second son was born. "Spending hours a day at home with our two boys inspired me to think about the space as more than rooms that I clean and work in," says the 33-year-old Runde, whose family lives in a Perry Hall subdivision.
