NEW YORK -- Bras, which were erroneously reported burned during the women's liberation movement of the 1960s, are in the fashion news again. They are increasingly designed to serve more than a supporting role -- they are meant to be seen. Under suit jackets, for example, they are taking the place of blouses or sweaters.Donna Karan is one designer who is keenly aware of the development. At 44, she is old enough to have participated in the imaginary bra burnings, but actually she was never tempted.

It was no doubt your first haircut -- that face-framing set of bangs. Probably trimmed by Mom using her sewing scissors; probably accompanied by pigtails or a pony. Well, it's time to go back to the future, girls. Break out the scissors (but hold the pigtails) because bangs are back. That sweet, innocent, girlish hair "do" is all the rage with some of Hollywood's hottest stars. Yes, that includes Catherine Zeta-Jones at the premiere of Intolerable Cruelty with new, totally tolerable bangs.

"Stretch for success" should be the motto for a lot of the fashion business today. Look at the way leggings and tights have almost become basic necessities for women from infancy to old age.For example, no one was surprised this fall when the stretchy body suits, tops, skirts, jeans and pants sold out first in Anne Klein Co.'s new A Line sportswear collection.In fact, the presence of a certain amount of stretchability woven into any kind of fabric is so pervasive today that it helps shape fashion from the heights and prices of Paris's Azzedine Alaia and New York's Donna Karan to the lowliest goods sold by a street vendor.

NEW YORK - The Fashion Week tent has been taken down, the MAC makeup has all been washed off, and the models probably have gone back to eating again. OK, who are we kidding? Models? Food? But the rest of that is true - Fashion Week, where more than 100 designers showed their collections, ended on a high note Friday with power-players Donna Karan and Calvin Klein revealing their chic and sexy visions for spring. For much of the preceding week, the runways had been dominated by collections borne of a mish-mash of decades - the '50s recast in the '80s with a touch of flapper '20s influence.

Perfectly suitedWomen lament that designer clothes are restricted to idealized body types, but men have their problems, too. What about the man who's 7-foot-plus, broad of shoulder and narrow of hip? He may be blessed with stature, but he's doomed at the suit racks. If his tastes run to impeccable style and he's NBA superstar Patrick Ewing, things are easier -- he's one of Donna Karan's long-time private clients.Now Ewing has been chosen as the image model for the new Donna Karan Made-to-Order Collection, a custom service being introduced in select stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus this month.

If you're bent on slipping into something comfortable for the holidays, consider a bodysuit with a long wrap skirt or evening pants."A bodysuit stays down, and it doesn't ride up, gap or wrinkle," says Patti Cohen, a vice president at Donna Karan.

You put it on along with your stockings, and you're almost dressed.""It's the modern blouse of the '90s," designer Josie Natori says.Panne or smooth velvet, sheers, glittery knits and embroidered lace are the top holiday looks, according to Karen Bromley, speaking for the Intimate Apparel Council.

Just a touch of starchThose hot Hollywood spouses, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, are the new spokescouple for quintessential coolness. They'll be seen in September's glossiest magazines wearing Donna Karan clothes and attitude.We've seen her in clothes and out of them, but he's the real surprise in these advertorials. The die-hard bad boy of wrinkled T-shirts and scruffy jeans cleans up very well. A perfect white shirt is apparently what a guy needs to make the transition from macho hunk to matinee idol.
