LONDON -- Glamorous is not exactly the first word that springs to mind when you think of Queen Elizabeth II, who became the oldest reigning monarch in British history yesterday. Consistent? Yes. Dedicated? Definitely. But glamorous? That would be like describing one her famed corgi dogs as lissome. Yet British Vogue has named this little old lady one of the world's 50 most glamorous women, along with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and the queen's screen alter ego, Helen Mirren. It's not that the 81-year-old queen has undergone some kind of dramatic makeover.

Jean E. Hill, a Baltimore model and actress who later performed in three John Waters films, died Wednesday of renal failure at Mercy Medical Center. She was 67. "Jean Hill was my only African-American star. She was a talented comedian, a brave actress and a much valued member of the Dreamland acting gang I worked with in my movies," said Mr. Waters. "She had a personality almost too large for show business, and she startled closed-minded people in every level of society. Sometimes raunchy in her public life, Jean was always classy in her private one, and underneath it all was a real lady," he said.

Supermodel Kate Moss is gorgeous, rich, famous and thin. She also appears to have a drug problem. Par for the course? Apparently not. At least, not anymore. When H&M, one of the world's fastest-growing retail chains, shocked the fashion industry this week by dropping Moss from a planned advertising campaign because the popular model was photographed - and subsequently admitted to - using cocaine, the firing sent a clear message: The hedonistic, heroin chic, Studio 54 days of the high-glam fashion world are coming to an end. "That edginess is part of the lore," says Teri Agins, author of The End of Fashion: How Marketing Changed the Clothing Business Forever.

I'VE been tempted toward bulimia many times. That's because, like many other women, I take my cues from Hollywood. But with Kate Winslet in "Titanic," Hollywood is finally giving a beauty with an imperfect body a prominent role -- a romantic lead. And now she has been nominated for a best actress Oscar.But poor Kate! Just when she thought she was making the movie that would catapult her to stardom's greatest heights, all that people could talk about was how fat she looked.Review after review of "Titanic" was consumed by rantings of the zaftig redhead's moon-pie face and ballooning curves.

It's the season for ads. September means new beginning, which means new attitude, which means new wardrobe, which means a fleet of new magazine issues as glossy as patent leather and as smelly as Filene's first floor and as thick and heavy as the Yellow Pages.This year, the endless pages of finely photographed print commercials are particularly stark and artsy, not to mention interchangeable, not to mention thick-papered and pushy.A virtual mini-Hollywood of famous people shows up to trade on their images, most notably Bruce Willis and Demi Moore (clothed)

You must remember this: lush red lips, smoky eyes, dark arched brows and a waterfall of wavy hair.The face of 1940s Hollywood screen goddesses -- Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Veronica Lake -- hover over spring fashion displays like glamorous visions from vintage fan magazines.After all, what could be better than a retro face to go with the retro clothes -- corsets, satin slips, tight belted suits -- that sashay through designer collections in Europe and New York?Whether or not modern women will be seized by the urge to paint their lips plum and wear their hair in peekaboo waves remains to be seen.

BOSTON -- The photo looks like a biogenetic experiment. You can imagine scientists playing with DNA. Let's see what happens if we take the head of a 25-year-old woman and attach it to the body of a 12-year-old boy.Eureka! A fashion model.This time, the model is Trish Goff. The outfit is a pair of swimming trunks and a strategically placed towel. The publication is not some medical annal, but the British edition of Vogue.In the anatomical world of supermodels, Trish Goff has arrived to make Linda Evangelista look pudgy.

Hours before sunrise yesterday, the marble hallways of St. Mary's Seminary and University in Roland Park echoed with the footsteps of more than 30 young men who came together to pay their respects to Pope John Paul II. Gathered in the refectory around a large-screen television broadcasting live coverage of the funeral service, the seminarians expressed little regret that they were unable to make the pilgrimage to Rome for the historic event. "We all would like to be there, but this is just as good," said Justin Pino, 24, of Erie, Pa. "The pope wanted people to walk with him, and this is our way of walking with him one last time."

But already, other companies' versions of the bra are flying out of stores across the country in a testament to the enduring belief that less can indeed be more.
