SAN FRANCISCO -- His murder didn't have the immediate impact that John Lennon's had on the baby boomers in 1980. But as word spread that Gianni Versace had been gunned down, 20-somethings and Generation Xers knew an icon of their world had been shattered.Even now, youthful fans adorn the sidewalks outside shuttered Versace stores with candles, flowers, notes of grief. Last weekend, MTV drove the point home with an hour-long retrospective on Versace's life -- treatment reserved for major pop culture figures, not heads of couture houses.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Henry VIII is coming back to the throne. And this time, he's bloody gorgeous. Showtime's epic 10-part miniseries The Tudors holds court beginning tonight at 10 with Jonathan Rhys Meyers cast as the unlikely lead. And much like Henry VIII, the show's producers can't disguise their ambitions - to produce a show that finally gets Showtime an HBO-style hit, popular both with the Emmy nobility and peasants alike. They've invested an unprecedented $38 million and have spent millions more promoting it. "We are hoping to be back here filming for another two, three, maybe four years, because the material we have to work with is so rich and there's so much story to tell.

MIAMI -- As the national manhunt for the suspected killer of fashion designer Gianni Versace intensified yesterday, an air of unease hung over glitzy South Beach -- and particularly the gay community here.Police released little new information about Andrew Phillip Cunanan, the prime suspect and reported gay prostitute who has been linked to four other slyings around the country, most often of gay men he seemed to know.WPLG-TV, an ABC affiliate, reported last night that video from a surveillance camera at a hotel near the scene of Versace's death might further link Cunanan to the crime.

ACTRESSES GET ALL THE BREAKS. If they follow the winds of fashion when getting dressed in the morning, they're congratulated for being so on-trend. If they break away from the trendy and do something different, they're avant-garde. Nowhere was that more obvious than at last week's Academy Awards. Gown after gorgeous gown on the red carpet either exemplified a trend or went against the grain -- and, for the most part, it all looked fabulous. "I thought it was in very good taste, fashion-wise, this Oscar season," says Avril Graham, executive fashion and beauty editor for Harper's Bazaar.

Three cheers for old school glamour. The lush fabrics, the classic tailoring. The jewels, the makeup, the hair! When celebrities find a way to bring back old Hollywood, and make it their own, it reminds us why we love to star-gaze in the first place. On the red carpet of last week's Academy Awards, actors and actresses combined style and beauty and grace, each in his or her own way. Elegance and romance ruled the night, but there were other trends that emerged. "The mermaid hemline was very in," said celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, "very fitted all the way down and then flared out."

The prescription: a healthy bout of retail therapy in Glasgow, Scotland, a city ranked as Britain's lustiest shopping mecca outside London. It would be a weekend rage of clothes, cocktails and caloric indulgence. And then the dollar tanked, committing hari-kari at the brink of 2 to the pound (up from its usual wildly expensive rate of $1.60). Shopping -- or buying, at least -- was out. What remained was four crisp days to discover the where and why of the once-gritty city now dubbed City of Culture, City of Architecture and Design, Scotland's Capital of Cool.

In the worlds of fashion and entertainment, the name "Versace" has been front and center in recent years. We've seen the glorious gowns on stars from Britney Spears to Catherine Zeta-Jones. And who could forget the taped-down scarf dress at the 2000 Grammy Awards that some still think launched the superstardom of Jennifer Lopez? A&E Network attempts to demystify the Versaces this week on an installment of Famous Families in Biography. The episode, which airs tomorrow at 8 p.m., tells the story behind the label, from the birth of Gianni Versace in a poor Southern Italian city to his becoming an international household name.

In the annals of fashion, the hemline has been one of the surest indicators of social unrest. This much is true -- each time a hemline has risen drastically, the world has been filled with uncertainty, rebellion and the heady possibility of sweeping change. In the jazzy '20s, the newly empowered woman wore skirts at a shocking knee-length. And in the politically charged 1960s, hemlines dramatically raced up the leg and miniskirts became must-haves for any self-respecting, liberated woman.

European trendies adapting good old American stylesMILAN - Forget that nonsense you've maybe heard about how European women wouldn't be caught dead wearing jeans on the street. Blue jeans almost always faded, as opposed to acid-washed or straight-from-the-store indigo and a snazzy, blazer-style jacket is the uniform of choice among shoppers of all ages in the Milan Galleria.And virtually every woman who isn't wearing jeans is wearing a short skirt and fishnet stockings.(Incidentally, the Rizzoli bookstore in the Galleria devotes an entire window to "Rossella," by Alexandra Ripley.

Actor Johnny Alonso has thick skin. Again and again in the past five years, Alonso hopped into his SUV, put a classic Eartha Kitt album in his CD player and made the lonesome haul down Interstate 95 to Wilmington, N.C., to audition for producers of the WB teen drama Dawson's Creek. He was rejected 27 times. "It got to the point where I would just drive zombified. I had no idea where I was," Alonso said from John Steven, a favorite Fells Point tavern. "I've always wanted to entertain.
