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.

In an essay for the New York Times, retiring fashion editor Cathy Horyn, a powerful commentator on the industry for 15 years, wrote in praise of "practical dressing. " She began by saying that she is freshening two bedrooms in her upstate New York house but is going to paint them exactly the same colors - light green and "ballroom blue" - rather than drive herself crazy with too many choices. This decision, she said, "sums up everything I feel about style and comfort. Or should I say the revenge of comfort over style.

Nothing says clear style ahead like the trim lines of a nautical turnout. Sailor-inspired dressing has a clean and classic feel. A nautical knit top and relaxed buttoned trousers were the chic thing to wear at the elegant watering places on the Riviera when Coco Chanel held fashion sway. Many decades later, the look still works, and you don't even have to go near the water.@

Toy Story and Toy Story 2 **** ( 4 STARS) You shouldn't pass up a chance to see them in 3-D. "Toy Story" is a buddy movie, with cowboy raggedy-doll Woody and sleek Space Age action figure Buzz going through the roughhouse version of getting-to-know-you familiar from "48 Hrs." and "Lethal Weapon." "Toy Story 2" is warmer and harder to classify. It's an ensemble comedy about several unexpected matters, including Woody discovering his show-biz roots - and his "inner cowboy" - and Buzz soldiering on through a hall-of-mirrors-like experience similar to the one John Malkovich endures when he goes into his own brain in "Being John Malkovich."

New York -- It's looking like a long, hot summer ahead as leading American designers begin unveiling their next year's collections here for buyers and press. Whew. Unseasonably warm weather for the first shows had black-clad and booted fashion watchers sweltering, but the real steam was on the runways.Fashion is getting so hot that designers are stripping women down to their slips and calling them dresses. These are grandmothers' good slips, however, lace-trimmed satin and charmeuse with clever seaming and bias cuts to follow the curves of the body.

One of the lavish new fashion books out this holiday season might be just the gift for the impossibly stylish ones on your list. Fashion brings an intimacy to the coffee table in a way that garden-variety gift books cannot. Ramblings through stately homes and formal gardens only serve to reinforce the distance between there and here. Few of us inhabit palaces, but at one time or another all of us have attempted to disguise or enhance what nature dealt us.That's what makes closer looks at the vagaries of the fashionable world so fascinating.

Few fashion items are as timeless or as versatile as pearls. Few faux gems look as good as simulated pearls. And few fashion trends could ask for a more ideal accessory.Many high-fashion spring and summer looks include clothes with built-in pearl accessories. But one needn't break the bank to buy into the oyster-gem trend. Relatively inexpensive pearly looks include buttons, headbands, pearl-handled handbags, pearl-studded sunglasses and pearl-trimmed gloves.If necklaces are your choice, think big. And long.
