AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- It remains to be seen whether AmericaOne and the Prada Challenge will be the two syndicates in the America's Cup challenger final, but it will be difficult for any future race between them to match the spectacle of today's. Sailing downwind on the final leg, their two expensive yachts and experienced crews were within easy shouting distance of each other, and both the AmericaOne skipper, Paul Cayard, and the Prada tactician, Torben Grael, made sure they were heard.

We weren't surprised to find out Joe Fava is an interior designer and owner of the Fava Design Group in Florida. The 40-year-old attendee of the Family Tree's 19th annual Great Chefs' Dinner was as put-together as the table he designed for the event — a purple Pucci-themed creation. "Trendy with an edge" is how the Baltimore native describes his style. The look : Aubergine cotton button-down Nara Camicie shirt. Black velvet Dolce & Gabbana blazer. Gray and black striped Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo pants.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- By posting huge victories in the America's Cup challenger trials today, AmericaOne from San Francisco and Italy's Prada are more likely to advance from the six-boat semifinal to meet in the challenger finals later this month. Paul Cayard and AmericaOne ended the hopes of San Francisco rival America True, and Prada's Francesco de Angelis pushed a floundering Stars and Stripes to the edge of elimination. Gale warnings for the Hauraki Gulf off Auckland made it questionable whether races could be held tomorrow, and Wednesday.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- The Italian challenger Prada recorded a 37-second win over AmericaOne today to even the score in the America's Cup best-of-nine challengers finals at 4-4. The challenger to defender Team New Zealand will be decided tomorrow in the deciding ninth race. AmericaOne's skipper, Paul Cayard, was penalized on the first downwind leg for failing to respond to a luff. The penalty meant AmericaOne had to make a 270-degree turn at some point. Cayard did so just before the finish, when the outcome was decided.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Lawyers for Italy's Prada America's Cup team are gathering evidence for a possible challenge over the legality of the carbon-fiber racing masts used by rival AmericaOne. Prada believes AmericaOne may have violated Article 17 of the America's Cup protocol, which specifically forbids "shared knowledge." The suggestion is that three American syndicates, AmericaOne, Stars and Stripes and Young America, which all had their masts built by the same company in Nevada, may have benefited by sharing various design concepts.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- On the eve of the America's Cup challenger elimination semifinals, Italy's Prada and AmericaOne have surfaced as the syndicates most likely to make it to the finals.It is no coincidence that these two outfits have outspent everyone in their attempts to win yachting's most coveted prize.Prada is personally funded by self-made fashion tycoon Patrizio Bertelli to the tune of $50 million, though some reports suggest it may be closer to $80 million. The AmericaOne syndicate from San Francisco's St. Francis Yacht Club is spending at least $32 million.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- AmericaOne defeated Italy's Prada Challenge today to win the fifth race in the America's Cup challenger finals and trim the Italians' lead in the best-of-nine series to 3-2. The margin of victory, 34 seconds, obscures what was an excellent, hard-fought and close race. It was won not by superior boat speed, but by the greater experience of the American skipper, Paul Cayard, and his crew. Prada's boat, Luna Rossa, looked set for another win, but as the boats ran almost neck and neck on the second downwind leg, Cayard fooled the Italians into thinking he was jibing.

The final two races in Round 1 of the Louis Vuitton Cup were postponed yesterday to allow several challenger teams to regroup after a day of rough-and-tumble competition on Hauraki Gulf in New Zealand.But even a stay probably won't be enough to keep the Italian challenger, Prada, from finishing the round in first place and executing the field with a 10-0 record.Prada (8-0) already has beaten the top two American teams -- Young America by 10 seconds and AmericaOne by 17 seconds -- and has only Le Defi of France and Abracadabra 2000 from Hawaii left on its race card.

On summer days, many women are looking for an outfit that is equal parts sporty and sexy. Skirts are wonderful, but they tend to be one adjective or the other. Hot pants are just sexy (or trashy). And dresses can be any number of things: comfy, elegant, dowdy, sexy, formal, tacky, you name it. Marion Lambropoulos shows us the most flattering way to be sporty/sexy - in these city shorts. The slender, longer take on traditional shorts is cool (both definitions) and shows her legs in a sexy but sophisticated way. Marion Lambropoulos Age: 40 Residence: Otterbein Job: Owner and stylist, M Salon in Federal Hill Self-described style: "Classic, with an eye on today's fashion trends."

From the embarrassing to the sophisticated, here's how fashion shaped our world this year There was a war and a pivotal election. Gas prices soared. Confidence in our president plummeted. It's not surprising then, that, amid all that, not a whole lot happened in the world of fashion in 2006. No major fashion figure emerged -- or died. No completely new thing caught fashion insiders by surprise. It was a year for eyelets and tunics, bubble skirts and leggings. Red lips made a comeback, and baring all (except when it came to a certain exhibitionist pop singer)

Actress Emily Blunt had her breakout role in last year's British film My Summer of Love, but this past summer the love was super-sized. As Meryl Streep's high-strung minion in The Devil Wears Prada, Blunt delighted critics and audiences alike with her arch one-liners and eye shadow for miles. The icily coiffed Streep may have stolen the movie, but Blunt drove the getaway car. Originally from London, Blunt, 23, now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her boyfriend, singer Michael Bubli.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA -- 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment -- $29.98 "A million girls would kill for your job." This is what Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) hears about a million times after taking on a particularly ill-fitting first job after college. She's hired as an assistant to Meryl Streep's Miranda Priestly, the storied editor of fashion bible Runway (think Vogue) and the titular demon in the movie version of Lauren Weisberger's best-selling novel The Devil Wears Prada. Miranda is demanding, cold, impossible to please and totally connected in the publishing world, which is why Andy decides to stick it out in the job. Soon she's ensnared in a world that she neither understands nor cares about.

In the movie The Devil Wears Prada, viewers watch as our heroine Anne Hathaway goes from a style-less blah to a stylish beauty with clothes, shoes and accessories any woman would swoon for. Chanel jackets. Gucci skirts. Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. Christian Louboutin calf-high boots. But Hathaway's Andy Sachs has help -- in a big way. She's able to borrow the latest, most coveted designer clothes from the storage closet of a fictional, glossy fashion magazine. Most of us aren't quite that lucky.

The moviemakers try to turn The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger's trashy best-seller about the terrors of working for a media tyrant, into a film about the pursuit of excellence and self-knowledge. They put the material on lifts - and end up tripping into TV dramedy land. Once again an idealistic college grad, Andrea Sachs (Anne Hathaway), lucks into a job at the fashion bible, Runway magazine, when its editor, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), makes the snap decision to hire a nonfashionista as her second assistant.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Three-time America's Cup winner Harold S. "Mike" Vanderbilt used to say that if you had to ask how much the America's Cup costs, you couldn't afford it.Although Italian fashion king Patrizio Bertelli apparently could afford it, he asked the question anyway.And when renowned yacht designer German Frers told him that he would get no change out of $50 million, Bertelli, one of the richest men in Europe, said he would "consult his board."Then with a smile he confided that the "board" meant his wife and business partner, Miuccia Prada.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Paranoia plays an important part in every America's Cup, and the current go-round here is no exception. On the eve of the best-of-nine challenger finals, there is so much tension between San Francisco's AmericaOne and Italy's Prada Challenge that the air fairly crackles across the wire-topped security screens separating their adjoining waterfront compounds. AmericaOne skipper Paul Cayard is particularly incensed at the way in which the Italians have sought to impugn his jealously guarded reputation for sportsmanship.

THE QUESTION What is your favorite Meryl Streep film and why? The Academy Award-winning actress stars in Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion, which opened in theaters this month. And today, her next movie - The Devil Wears Prada - opens nationwide. WHAT YOU SAY I find it impossible to pinpoint a single film in which she starred since she adapts herself and excels in every role that she portrays. FREDA GARELICK, BALTIMORE Because I enjoy impersonations and accents, my favorite Meryl Streep role is Francesca in The Bridges of Madison County.
