SINGAPORE -- Singapore Airlines Ltd. introduced movies and music on demand and satellite-based telephones to make its flights more enticing. It was the first major carrier to offer free headsets and drinks to passengers flying coach. But after years of creating innovations to entertain its customers, the carrier aims to put them to sleep with its newest amenity: the ultimate flying bed. Singapore's "luxury suite" - really a seat that can unfold into a bed - is reserved for the privileged few who can afford the first-class $10,000 round-trip airfare.

Naomi Watts sparkled in a gorgeous Versace gown. Nicole Kidman wore Chanel couture and her hair in a cascade of curls. Liv Tyler's Givenchy gown was a fabulous study in black. This year's Academy Awards show was a high-glam, leap day's journey into night. Fashion faux pas were few as actresses - draped in chiffon, tulle and silk - chose to emulate bygone eras of elegance. Hair was softly curled, shoulders were bare, and cleavage ruled the night. The Oscars ritual returned to its showy self after two years of relative solemnity imposed by the Sept.

The rumor was so outlandish, it seemed to spring from fantasy: Two wild and wooly but wildly creative British designers were to take over two of France's stuffiest couture houses, Givenchy and Christian Dior.But it was fact. John Galliano, 36, the dreadlocked, club-haunting son of a plumber, was to gain creative control of Dior after a short stint at Givenchy, and in his place, a foul-mouthed son of a taxi driver, Alexander McQueen, 27, would reign at the famously proper house of Givenchy.

Big women have presence and stature in today's marketplace. They are the new darlings of the fashion world. The retail industry -- which early on treated the plus-size customer as an unwanted blob on the fashion picture -- has come around to understanding big sizes have big spending power and a great sense of style, too.The latest retailer to jump on the bandwagon is Saks Fifth Avenue at Owings Mills. That temple of taste and chic opened Salon Z on March 16. The salon carries sizes 14 to 24 in a fashionable ambience featuring a string of bridge and designer labels that ring bells for the fashion-conscious: Adrienne Vittadini, CH for Carolina Herrera, Mary McFadden, Givenchy En Plus and the Saks private label among them.
