Soaking in a bath tub, Michael Phelps wears nothing but a small swimsuit, a pair of goggles atop his head and a stern look. Next to him, a pair of blue jeans spills from a Louis Vuitton bag. It marks a sophisticated turn as a pitchman for the Baltimore swimmer fresh off setting a record for the most Olympic medals earned in a career. But there's speculation his appearance in an advertising campaign shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for the high-end designer's latest campaign could run him afoul of International Olympic Committee rules.

It may have been a packed house at RA Sushi's happy hour, but Laura Almalel was a standout. The 45-year-old financial adviser for Fulton Financial likes to stand out from the crowd, when she's on her own time. "At work, I dress pretty conservatively. I wear suits. But I try to push it a little bit by wearing some really stylish shoes. ... Off work, I like to be a little bit more fun." We think the Annapolis resident got it just right. The look: Gray rayon one-shoulder Blaque Label knit top. Dark wash skinny 7 For All Mankind jeans.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- New Zealanders are generally no more or less rapacious than anyone else, but right now they do seem to be intent on wringing every last dollar out of the America's Cup being contested here. With the regatta's final series, between Italy's Prada and defender Team New Zealand, set to get under way here Feb. 19, prices in top-end hotels have shot up. In some cases they have almost doubled in the past week. At the 272-room Hyatt Regency, the standard room rate has gone up from $118 to $180.

Indulge. Wrap up. Accessorize. Pay tribute to the past. Celebrate the future. This season's collections have shaken up fashion with their extravagance and unpredictability. An infusion of millennium-inspired fashions and the staying power of a number of recent trends ('70s, bold color, survivalwear) have filled the runways with a wild assortment of styles. While some designers are getting nostalgic as January 2000 approaches, others are racing ahead. This season, anything goes: from classic to modern, fitted to flowing, ethnic to futuristic.

Remember when upscale shopping in Towson meant a trip to Hutzler's? Well, you can forget those days. On Wednesday, Louis Vuitton opened in what can only be described as the luxury wing of Towson Town Center. The French designer is to leather handbags and accessories what Taittinger is to champagne and beluga sturgeon are to caviar. Think women's wallets for $535 and a man's billfold for $315 - and that's the cheap stuff. When relatively simple handbags cost more than $2,000, you know you're not in Wal-Mart country anymore.
