The Princess and the Panty Hose: Catherine Oxenberg, the real-life daughter of Yugoslavia's Princess Elizabeth, who plays Amanda on the "Dynasty" soap, may soon get a leg up on her career.

How to go gray the Mickey Rourke way: "First I smoked a few cigarettes," hair stylist Giuseppe Franco says. "Then Mickey smoked a few cigarettes, and we put the ashes in some silver-gray rinse. Then I bleached his hair all over and put on the gray rinse with the ashes in it. That gave Mickey's hair a natural gray look." Rourke needed old-looking hair for his new role as a middle-age detective in an upcoming movie, "Year of the Dragon." Franco says he's been styling the actor's hair both on and off screen since they met 10 months ago. But that's another story. "He was walking down Canon Drive past the salon, and I told him I admire his work," Franco recalls. "Now I take care of his hair all the time."
