The Emmy statuettes weren't the only lithe, gold figures at Sunday night's award show. Celebrities walked the red carpet in varying metallic hues, from warm gold and bronze to shimmery shades of silver and gray. While the look was metallic, it was anything but heavy. Tones were subtle, gown silhouettes were simple and jewelry was noticeably pared down. In the downtown L.A. heat, a palette of pretty metallics made more sense than a dark, weighty gown that looked as if the wearer would need a wheelbarrow to get from the limo to her seat.

P ant- emonium broke out when New York designer Carolina Herrera unveiled her fall 1993 collection Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Irvine for the Angelitos de Oro annual fund-raiser for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Orange County. Herrera showed pants for day, evening and just about every dressy occasion. Never one to bow to fads, the Venezuelan-born designer showed no bell-bottoms.

Many of the spring clothes designers are showing this week have a tactile appeal. Maybe it's a signal that we're searching for more depth in fashion, something to touch and feel, not just to look at and discard after one season. Of course, it also helps to justify a high price tag -- because you can actually see the work. The new summer suit as a trend came into focus at Carolina Herrera on Monday, where a sinewy rope-weave raffia vest was paired with linen shorts. Herrera's collection had an organic sensibility and was free of any strict theme.

It's amazing how often in fashion that a moment from the past brings into focus what's happening in the present. Such was the case over the weekend at New York Fashion Week. Signs of the recession are everywhere here -- the missing faces in the front row, including Saks Fifth Avenue fashion director Michael Fink, who was laid off last month; the empty storefronts on Madison Avenue; the scaled-back shows.

"I'm gettin' married in a mini" could be the theme song of this year's brides, as the miniskirt revival starts to make its way down the aisle. And there's nobody to blame but the brides themselves. They're old enough to know what they like--more than half of last year's first-time brides were 25 or more years old, according to a Bride's magazine formal-wedding survey.
