You may not recognize Debbie Kowalski Wilson's name, but if you've opened a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in the past six years, chances are you've seen her work. Wilson, who is from Edgewood and now lives in Hawaii, has had her Maui Girl swimsuits featured in the popular edition of the magazine 48 times - and more than 200 times in the online version. This year, Wilson's swimsuits were featured 14 times, including a centerfold with cover model Kate Upton in Antarctica. And with Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer here on the mainland, quickly approaching, Wilson is preparing for a busy season.

Unsuitable?The sensitive guys at GQ know how to protect tender sensibilities against attacks of tastelessness. The February issue GQ has two different covers. Subscribers, who receive the magazine in a plain white wrapper, get the naughtier version featuring the ubiquitous Dennis Rodman camping it up with the lovely Rebecca Romjin. Her bosom is camouflaged by painted hands. The body painting is by the same artist who touched up the nude Demi Moore for the now-famous Vanity Fair cover."It was a send-up of all those photo spreads of celebrities clutching their breasts," says Terry McDevitt, publicist for GQ. She says the real story is a catch-up profile of the banished basketball star.

As a goalie for Princeton University's women's lacrosse team, Jane Randall was loaded down with protective gear in order to thwart a barrage of shots as opponents attempted to score. When she decided to ditch the bulky getup in favor of the glitzier haute couture as a contestant on this season of "America's Next Top Model," Randall opened herself to the realities of high-fashion modeling, which can at times be cutthroat, harsh, and downright mean. And that's just from the judges.

Just a touch of starchThose hot Hollywood spouses, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, are the new spokescouple for quintessential coolness. They'll be seen in September's glossiest magazines wearing Donna Karan clothes and attitude.We've seen her in clothes and out of them, but he's the real surprise in these advertorials. The die-hard bad boy of wrinkled T-shirts and scruffy jeans cleans up very well. A perfect white shirt is apparently what a guy needs to make the transition from macho hunk to matinee idol.

Isis King is by no means a finished project. She's an evolving work of art. Many expected the 25-year-old to be sashaying the catwalks for major fashion houses in Europe after her ground-breaking appearance on "America's Next Top Model. " But she has essentially walked away from the industry because she thinks it limits her artistic talents. King, a Prince George's County native now living in New York City, is pursuing a design career and testing the waters in acting. That doesn't mean that she has completely turned her back on the runway, though.

AT 5 FEET 10 INCHES WITH A milk-chocolate complexion and naturally curly ringlets of dark and light brown highlights, Mia Herring has the look of a model. And that's what the 25-year-old is banking on as a finalist in the second annual national SoftSheen-Carson Vixen Model Search. This easygoing and confident West Baltimore native will know in September whether she has the look the hair care company and urban, streetwise fashion magazine is looking for. "Modeling is second nature for me. I think it's something I'm supposed to do. I know this is it," Herring says hesitantly yet passionately.

It is one of Baltimore's best-kept secrets, but it is a fact. Beauty begins in Hunt Valley. On an unassuming part of York Road, nearly hidden among squat hobby shops and antiques stores, sits the international headquarters for the largest, possibly most-recognizable cosmetics company in the nation. CoverGirl -- home to such famous faces as Christie Brinkley, Molly Sims and Tyra Banks -- has been in Baltimore County since 1966. There it sits, across the street from a Midas and a Firestone, Andy Nelson's BBQ and a KFC, a campus of nondescript buildings and lush green trees.

She favors dresses that encase her heaving bosom in striking satin cups and never wakes up before noon, when she languorously slips into a silk kimono and reaches for her first martini and cigarette. And she will steal your boyfriend. Just before the Spring 2003 Fashion Week ended Monday, a decidedly different woman emerged on the runways from the ruffles- and pastel-loving girls of the earlier shows.
