NEW YORK -- Runway shows at Fashion Week might just be the last place on Earth where discrimination is not only permitted, it is actually encouraged. Here - under the bright lights and amid the air kisses - it is clear who is important and who is not, simply by checking the Who's Who of the fashion world: the seating chart. Seating snafus have tested friendships. Fisticuffs have reportedly ensued. "If your name isn't Phillip Bloch, why are you sitting in my seat?" asks Bloch, renowned celebrity stylist and no-nonsense supporter of the seating hierarchy.

When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

For those unfortunate souls who have more money than ideas on how to spend it, help is on the way. A lot of help. Just hitting the newsstands is SHOP Etc., a new Hearst Corp. magazine that aims to help consumers be "smarter, slicker and more demanding" about buying everything from eyeshadow to poster beds. It joins a growing field of glossy magazines all focused on the same goal of making you the ultimate shopper. Utterly clueless about the comeback of ponchos and fur vests? What to wear with a classic bomber jacket?

"Carolyn called me at work one day and said, 'I just got a call from somebody at Better Homes and Gardens,' " Robert Hill relates. "I said, 'Are they selling subscriptions?' "No indeed. Although the couple still can't quite believe it, their Dickeyville house had been "discovered" by one of Better Homes' editors, who thought it a perfect candidate for the shelter magazine's glossy pages."I asked first if they had the right house," Carolyn Hill says. "I wasn't being clever. I was really wondering."

You're at a party. An incredibly striking woman walks into the room, maybe 5 feet 11, less than 120 pounds. You don't know her given name. But, in your mind, you immediately give her one. What is it? If you're like the average woman, maybe 5 feet 4, around 135 pounds, chances are the name you give her rhymes with witch. Yeah, you know the one.As usual, thin is in. But it is also in the line of fire among a conflicted culture of people. We salivate at the thought of a magic diet pill, and at the same time we curse the beauty industry that continually pushes forth waifs as the beauty ideal.

* Good common sense.* A clear understanding of the image one wants to project and what best reflects your personality.* Do it in a simple manner in the way that best suits your lifestyle.* When looking at fashion magazines -- I do agree some are wonderful and fun -- remember that sometimes their advice is the fastest way of becoming a fashion victim.* First of all, a woman has to have a very good handle on herself, and most women have that early on. Once you have it, don't deviate from it. Don't be tempted into a new hairdo or whole new style of dressing.

Q: I am using a product called Essence of Time and am including the ingredient list. I have blackheads even though I have used a complexion brush for years.A: Scrubbing the face, as you have already learned, does not get rid of blackheads, and even switching to baking soda or any other exfoliator won't get rid of them. Exfoliators and scrubs just can't get deep enough to get the plug out; if they could, you would be bleeding, having burned or scrubbed off most of your skin. The only way to get rid of blackheads is by gentle squeezing.
