Prince George's Little Theatre is opening its 54th season with a stellar production of the 1932 madcap comedy "Twentieth Century," a product of the late, legendary Broadway and Hollywood writing team Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur. "Twentieth Century," which became a successful film in 1934, is credited by PGLT with establishing many of the essential ingredients that characterize the great screwball comedies of the 1930s: "a dizzy dame, a charming but befuddled hero, dazzling dialogue and a dash of slapstick.

When Glamour won the 1992 National Magazine Award for public interest for two articles on teen-age pregnancy and abortion, a tall, elegant woman threaded her way through the audience to accept it."It is a special thrill," she said, "for a magazine named Glamour to win in a category called public interest for a topic as seethingly controversial as abortion."The applause from more than a thousand magazine officials gathered at the Waldorf-Astoria in April was thunderous. Ruth Whitney, editor in chief of Glamour, is one of the most respected editors in the industry.

Frankly, darling, Hollywood isn't what it used to be. Don't you agree?No one wants to be called a starlet any more. They all want to be "actors." And the average movie star couldn't walk down a staircase in a pair of high heels if her career depended on it. It's almost as if someone pulled a giant plug and let all the glamour run out like so much bathwater.But not to fret. Glamour is staging a comeback. Not in Hollywood (unless you count that one-woman renaissance Madonna). But right the beauty salons, the lingerie departments, at the makeup counters!

Andy Warhol promised everyone 15 minutes of fame, and now John Segall offers every woman (and man, too) a bit of glamour -- at least in a photo."The motto of our store is we capture the beauty in every woman who exists," says Mr. Segall, president of Elegant Images, a growing chain of glamour photography salons, with the nearest outlet at White Marsh Mall. "It's absolutely there. It's just a question of developing it."To develop "it," customers go through a two-hour beauty makeover and hairstyling before sitting under carefully arranged lights for a Vogue-like portrait.

In the movie The Devil Wears Prada, which opens Friday, Meryl Streep plays The Devil who saunters through scenes in Prada, Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Valentino, Christian Louboutin and every other big-name designer you can think of. She sucks down nonfat lattes like fortified water. She terrorizes her assistants, a silver-haired Attila the Hun in stilettos and Versace. The movie is based on the dishy novel of the same name, which is said to be a roman a clef, revealing for the uninitiated what life is like at top fashion magazines such as Vogue.

Tucked into her snug, but forgiving wardrobe, the oomphy pinup girl, a pop culture staple circa 1940s and '50s, offers a more realistic approach to the cultivation of sex appeal than today's skinny fashion nymphs and their scanty apparel. Few women can match the idealized beauty of the starlets the famous glamour artist Alberto Vargas once painted for Esquire and Playboy magazines, but it's still easier to aspire to an image that invites the amply-figured as well as the slender to apply.

You may not care what Brad and Angelina are up to or when Katie and Tom will tie the knot. But these days, some furniture makers are banking on Hollywood nostalgia in the home for star quality. The Tinseltown of yesteryear sparkles in several furniture collections introduced last spring at the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina. It's old-fashioned glamour, the kind that comes from films of the 1920s, '30s and '40s that show luxurious homes and suave actors like Humphrey Bogart and Cary Grant and alluring actresses like Lauren Bacall and Rita Hayworth.

An assessment of Stacy Keibler's attire this awards season reads like a children's bedtime story. Her Snooki-esque poofed hair and simple black dress lacked sophistication at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Jan. 7. Her updo and crystal embellished gown screamed "too matronly" at the National Board of Review Awards gala on Jan. 10. But fashion critics said she hit her stride at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 15 with a...

When Elizabeth Taylor left this world — with instructions that she be "fashionably late" for her own funeral, a diva to the last — she took with her a list of Hollywood epithets that may never again describe a leading lady. With her bird's egg-sized diamonds, she was glamorous in a way that will never be used to describe any other actress. Cameron Diaz looking sweaty and ripped after a workout with baseball boyfriend Alex Rodriguez? Elizabeth would have handed him a martini by the pool.

Baltimore's favorite mother has inspired a saying. Whenever her friends and family encounter something Debbie Phelps would say or want or do, someone will inevitably say: "That's so DP. " Things that sparkle and shine and make statements? Very DP. An extra coat of mascara? A spray of sequins? Bold lipstick? Utterly DP. But the true DP essence is rooted in emotion: Unabashed displays of maternal love. Pausing, mid-moment, to steep in sentiment. Public tears. These days, what wraps all of that into one luxurious package is Phelps' new home on the Inner Harbor.

Were William Shakespeare, the most famous English writer, to reappear on the streets today, chances are no one would have a clue who he was. That's because, 400 years after his death, our impressions of what the Bard really looked like remain wedded to a few images created years after his death, in an outmoded style that makes it hard to even imagine the author of the great comedies and tragedies as a flesh-and-blood human being. So this week's unveiling, in London, of a hitherto unknown portrait of Shakespeare - painted during his lifetime, then squirreled away for centuries in the private collection of an aristocratic family who had no idea what they had - comes as a revelation.

Fashion-savvy bathing beauties know that what was sexy yesterday can look a little tarty today. Especially when one of the hottest trends this summer is more conservative, vintage-inspired swimwear from designer lines like Betsey Johnson, Trina Turk and Juicy Couture. The one-piece suit is making a comeback in a big way -- across the board from all manufacturers. Of course, there are still lots of skimpy bikinis to be seen at pools and beaches this summer, but those who really want to be fashion-forward are going retro.

Is Deena Jones Diana Ross? Are the Dreamettes really the Supremes? Dreamgirls, the much-buzzed-about movie version of the 1981 hit Broadway musical, doesn't say so flat out. But the costumes in the film (in theaters nationally Christmas Day) -- from the many extravagant gowns to those used for the transformation of the once-meek lead character into a fabulous, fashionable diva -- say it all too well. "This is pure, unadulterated glamour," says Jacqui Stafford, executive style director for Shape magazine, about the outfits worn in the film by Deena Jones (Beyonce Knowles)

WHAT'S THIS? THE '40s are now in style? How can that be? Only a few months ago, psychedelic leggings, Mondrian prints, vinyl miniskirts of the '60s were spread across the fashion magazines.Can fashion be that fickle?Well, miniskirts are definitely not history, yet. Major fashion retailers have come out in strong support of short hemlines for the spring -- despite whatever long lengths designers may want to show on the runways.But for the fashion avant garde, who've been playing with frosted lips and beehives for at least a half dozen years, the movie star glamour of the '40s offers something new. The dramatic red mouth of Joan Crawford, the boldly arched brow of Katharine Hepburn and the well-coiffed hair of Lauren Bacall are a fresh departure.

Instead of celebrities and glamour, viewers of NBC's Golden Globes telecast last night were served three hours of cheesy interviews and vapid patter hosted by Hollywood and network TV hacks. It was the awards show that wasn't - as NBC forged ahead with a telecast even after what has been one of Hollywood's flashiest awards ceremonies was brought to its knees by a writers' strike. The bulk of NBC's evening was taken up with a disingenuous clip-job of an interview show hosted by Matt Lauer of the Today show.
