When Palm Inc. and supermodel Claudia Schiffer announced last summer that they would collaborate on the design of a special-edition personal digital assistant, our adolescent imaginations went a little nutso. But now we've seen the device and calmed down--significantly. At $399, Schiffer's Palm Vx offers the same features as all the other Palm Vxs out there: 8 megabytes of memory, Palm OS version 3.5, anodized aluminum case.

An IQ of 37-24-36: Everyone is horrified by the news that 50% of L.A.'s public school students are flunking their classes. For one thing, if the trend continues, it could severely limit the pool of future game-show contestants. It could also lead to an epidemic of misspelled and ungrammatical graffiti, which would be extremely annoying, unlike regular graffiti, which is art.

Charmaine Bade, a 15-year-old sophomore at Granada Hills High School, spent the Martin Luther King Jr. birthday holiday hanging out with the Miyazaki sisters. That would be Marissa, 15, and Annie, 13. They didn't go to the mall. They went to their neighborhood Target. They were on a mission, though not exactly a mission from God. They, and about 500 other people like them, had come to see Claudia. Why? "Just because she's a famous person," Charmaine said.

Like model Ines de la Fressange before her, Claudia Schiffer has fallen out of favor with designer Karl Lagerfeld. It seems la Schiffer had the gall to appear in a Fanta soft drink ad. This, Lagerfeld told W magazine, was "stooping too low." Immediately after the designer's shows Monday in Paris, Schiffer disappeared without so much as a congratulations, according to Reuters. (De la Fressange's crime? The former Chanel model posed for a bust of Marianne, France's national symbol.

Joan Lunden let German super model Claudia Schiffer promote her 1994 cheesecake calendar on "Good Morning America" for several minutes this week. Then the whip-cracking journalist went for the throat. What about romance, Claudia? Is it David Copperfield? Or Prince Albert of Monaco? "I haff no boyfriends," Schiffer answered sulkily. Unless, of course, you count the 250,000 fans who'd like to be her boyfriend but, faced with reality, settle for a shrink-wrapped facsimile. For $14.

Claudia Schiffer apologized, over a firm handclasp, for being a good half-hour late. The supermodel had been stumping all morning for the "Perfectly Fit" video series for arms, abs, legs and buns. With all of that out of the way, we relaxed at a corner table at the Four Seasons. While the waiter took Schiffer's order--"Do you have strawberry juice?"--it struck us that she is even prettier in person. Does she credit her parents, Gudrun and Heinz, who live in her native Rheinberg, Germany?

Seated with the precision of a military exercise, the audience at Jil Sander's show was scrutinizing itself for clues as to the current pecking order. Since we recognized only a few, including Azzedine Alaia, we passed the time scrutinizing clothing instead. Not surprisingly, the people who have exhorted their readers/viewers/customers/whatever to Think Pink for spring, aren't. In fact, spotting a bit of color in this crowd is like finding Waldo.

The last guilty mouthful of Dove chocolate is just a silky memory. So are the picture-perfect hairdos on the stars we watched with such loving attention Monday night. Ah, the Academy Awards. What could be sweeter than criticizing every last flaw on the most beautiful women in the world with one's dearest friends? "Somebody ought to tell Miranda Richardson and Andie McDowell where to get a girdle," muttered a friend who harbors a quaint, if flagging, belief in flat stomachs.

Not far from the madding crowds pushing their luck on casino slot machines and keno here is a large industrial warehouse with an unbelievably clean floor. The outside of the pink building describes it as a bra and girdle establishment, but the interior is filled with various large implements of destruction that have nothing to do with underwear. Near the center stands a massive Death Saw, its silver blades bearing no evidence of the man it has severed in half numerous times. Close by is a bed of tall, uninviting spikes that once sat hungrily under the same man as he dangled precariously above from burning ropes.
