The neat little cocktail dress is back to stir things up for the holidays with a decidedly modern twist. For the first time in years, glitz has given way to low-key glamour in this season's ladylike satin sheath.Undeniably seductive in all its incarnations, it still retains a sense of refinement. Inspired by women of great influential style like Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn, the old sleeveless sheath continues to have staying power. Modern executions, however, don't scream retro. Designer Donna Karan recently dubbed the sheath "the foundation of dressing -- the new bodysuit."

NEW YORK - Welcome to Broadway, Hon. Baltimore came to the Big Apple in a big way last night with the premiere of Hairspray, John Waters' affectionate, $10.5 million tribute to his hometown. Although other shows set in Charm City have played here (Kiss Me Kate comes to mind), none of them celebrates Bawlamer to the degree that Hairspray does. As a result, the Baltimoreans in the audience (not to mention the show's creators, investors and cast) were wondering how well those two wildly different cultures would mix. The musical is even playing in a theater named after that quintessential New Yorker, Neil Simon.

If you haven't seen tennis star Maria Sharapova's new ad for Nike, get one of your kids to find it for you on the Internet. The ad follows the statuesque and lovely winner of the U.S. Open as she makes her way from her hotel room to the court at Flushing Meadows in New York. Along the way, hotel maids, doormen, cabdrivers -- even TV commentators John and Patrick McEnroe up in the booth -- sing "I Feel Pretty" from the musical West Side Story. I won't spoil the punch line -- and it really has a lot of punch -- but the ad has all the cool quotient that we have come to expect from Nike.

Angela Grube quickly combed through the clothing rack ignoring several pristine looking garments before the prized item caught her eye: a black dress with a torn zipper and holes in the underarms. Grube was shopping in the basement of a vintage store in Hampden when she found the treasure: a three-quarter length, cocktail dress adorned with bluish glass beads atop embroidered trees. She basked in her good luck. The damage to the dress would be a quick fix for the self taught seamstress and vintage clothing store owner.
