Think of it as putting the "man" in "manicure." Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and the former Mr. Shannen Doherty--Ashley Hamilton--are joining club kids and rock musicians in sporting chipped nail polish, preferably black. Does the black give them that rugged "I-dropped-my-hammer-on-every-finger-and-now-they've-turned-dark" look? "It looked a little sinister," says Colleen Creighton, stylist for Details magazine, which features Tarantino and Hamilton.

Designers once had to land an HGTV television gig to emerge beyond the world of coffee-table books and shelter magazines. James Magni, however, may have created another channel for getting his design message to the masses: video. Like many other designers, Magni has come out with a book -- a monograph, as some like to say -- called "Magni Modernism" (Abrams, $60), released Tuesday. With a witty introduction by Mayer Rus, the book chronicles the L.A.-based designer's 25-year career -- 240 pages of Magni-fied homes, some local (Beverly Hills, Balboa Island)

A man accused of ramming a car into the Playboy Mansion's gates twice in a week has pleaded not guilty. Glen Meador entered his pleas Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to a pair of felony vandalism charges. Police have said Meador slammed into the gates twice in late August over an ongoing dispute but have not offered further details.

Clodhoppers. Those sensible shoes that evoke images of snowbound New York streets, Rosie the Riveter and timeless proletarian fashion. They may never overtake stiletto heels and low-slung pumps, but in certain circles today, clunky industrial-looking shoes are selling briskly. "It's an anti-fashion statement that's really popular," says Jennifer Thompson of Sepulveda, who owns several pairs. "They're fun, they're comfortable and they catch people's attention." They're also built to last.

There comes a time in every party girl's life when the party stops being fun. Such was the case Friday night at the parties surrounding Coachella when massive lines, overcrowding, ridiculous displays of outsized drunkenness and the general fatigue of everyone made for a tough night out. The evening's biggest letdown came in the form of the Diesel + Edun / Rolling Stone: Studio Africa party. Located at a posh ranch just off the festival grounds, the party -- scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. -- was crammed to capacity by 11:15.
